I actually kind of enjoyed it up until the guarding Archimedes mission which was fucking awful.Jandau said:Well, you're hardly tinkling, it's more like slight incontinence on your part...RhombusHatesYou said:TCA haven't said any of the titles will be Total War style strategy games... for all we know they're slated to shit out a bunch of warhammer fantasy flavoured versions of Spartan: Total Warrior.
Any other parades I can piss on?
As far as I know, Spartan: Total Warrior was a failure in every way possible, so it's highly unlikely they'll be doing anything like that again. On the other hand, TCA can do one game type and one game type only, and they've gotten pretty good at it over the years. Total War games sell, are praised by critics and gamers alike and have been getting better and better over time. So while what you suggest is in the realm of possibility, I find the 2012 apocalypse more likely.
Awww really? Not really played anything from fantasy warhammer since Dark omen xDMajor Tom said:Berserkers are actually a 40K thing, so you probably wont be seeing them in Fantasy. But I suppose if you give some Chaos Warriors an extra hand weapon, a Mark of Khorne and a Banner of Rage, you get a similar sort of effect.lRookiel said:Just give me some Khorne Berzerkers and I'll be jumping with joy.
Nice, im trying to get my hands on the first edition versionsaintdane05 said:YES! It took this long, but someone knows what my avatar is!

Beautiful, even if it comes with a carboard trailer.
Nah, doubt that would work. The original Dawn of War did 40k excellently, it was DoW2 that decided to fuck it all up. SPACE MUHREENS.Kahani said:This makes me happy. The Warhammer RTS games were fun, but they were basically wanting to be Total War before anyone had actually worked out how to do it properly. I just hope they can get the rights for 40K as well. The Dawn of War games were great, but I'd definitely prefer a Total War-style campaign.
Yup, there is a map of the Warhammer world, and it looks a lot like ours actually. For some reason Dark Elves are actually Canadian and High Elves are Atlantians.Thyunda said:Nah, doubt that would work.

I hate them.
Warhammer Fantasy...however...fits Total War like a glove. Call it a 'reskinned Total War' if you want, but that shits all over the series, implying that Rome and Empire are the same game with different models. Is there a map anywhere of the actual Warhammer world? I don't remember ever seeing one outside of the confusing starmaps associated with the 40k lore.
By contrast I liked Company of Heroes.Scorpid said:I actually didn't like it all that much honestly, I thought it was kind of neat but every side played more or less the same after only a few sit downs with it. Perhaps something more like Company of Heros was a better example of what I was thinking of, (another THQ game, boy I hope they stay around). Either way I doubt we'll see armies of thousands fighting each other. My point was they've gone in different directions before from RTS games and I think they will again with this one.
