  1. I have a theory.
    I think GW actively discourages and doesn’t allow really high quality 40K games because they might detract from figure sales. Now you may think "Well anon, that sounds fucking retarded, that goes against everything that they teach you in Marketing 101", and you’d be correct. GW has shown many times in the last few months they’re run by incompetent suits that have no idea what they’re doing.

    That, or talented devs simply no longer give a fuck about 40k or are unwilling to put up with GW meddling.

    • I played the Fantasy mount and blade warband mod for a while as a chaos barbarian. Was pretty funny chopping shit up, the chaos dudes are like twice the size of normal models lol

  2. the warhammer franchise fucking sucks. They ruined it. They gave away that license way to easy and now there is no quality in anything. The base boardgame fucking sucks and is more expansive than ever with less detailed figures to rip you off more. The games all suck. Dawn of war tried to be a moba and was a stillbirth. All warhammer games are fucking dogshit.

    • Yeah. Stuff like Halo is an exception rather than the rule, many sci-fi properties arent too mainstream compared to how many cool sci-fi games/movies/books there are that in comparison barely anyone knows about in the cultural zeitgeist

    What you talking about, we had plenty of generic third person shooters

    Space marine dropped the ball HARD on the tone and setting. If you stripped away Titus’ blue paint and coloured the orks grey or something it would be literally any other grungy sci-fi game.

    Absolutely Heretekal

    • You get to see like two or three locations in the game and all of them are overrun by the orkz. Batltlefield is no place for cogboys.

    • The skitarri got fucked over quickly and hard by the Ork invasion, Id assume most robe boys were definitely dead, dying or hiding by that point

      • Wouldn’t it be more amazing to join and support teams of eccentric Skitarii and their Secutors overseers instead of generic Cadian radio lady? Space marine is so fucking bland it’s like plain white bread with nothing on it.

        • That’s the point. Space Marine was designed for people who dont know shit about 40k and wanted to play something cool, so they made the story as bland as 40k can be, which is still pretty interesting if you dont know much about it or not at all.
          I remember interviews with Relic and GW shit at the time, and its why they picked UM as protags instead of Relic’s own Blood Ravens, since the UM are designed to be newbie friendly on the TT as well from a lot of standpoints
          But yes it probably would have been more interesting and thematic for actual admech stuff, but people might have been too weirded out by it, so I can see why they played it safe and went with the Cadians who are the cookie cutter UM equivalent in the Guard

          • also this was back in 2011, long before GW had solidified any kind of design or solid theme for the Skitarri in particular. So GW might have even mandated not to have any designs for Skitarri. Remember this was in the early 2010s so GW was probably a lot more anal and less collaborative than they are now with say, CA and TWW3

          • Honestly it was around this time that I stopped giving a shit about 40k and GW for a while, that movie was embarrassingly bad

          • The bit of goriness that there was was neat but most of it was so lore unfriendly. The exploding car trap would’ve never even worked, spess mareens have life sensors for like miles away.

  5. Relic hits gold and just stop, like how Creative Assembly stops making kino action game like Spartan: Total Warrior.

    I really don’t understand why RTS devs have so much experiences doing action/strategy games hybrid but they just refuse to make more.

    Just play one of those Transformers third person shooters, literally the same thing.
    At least Necromunda wasn’t shat out their ass with no effort like Space Marine was. Space Marine fans have never even played another 40k game like Dawn of War or Space Hulk in their life.

  7. Because GamesWorkshop is fucking retarded and only gives the IP to literal who studios that turn it into something garbage. Only good 40k game from recent time would be Mechanicus and that is literally just Xcom.
