Space Marine 'is our Gears of War-killer' - THQ

Postby PKay2010 » 16 Jun 2010, 13:53

I desperately hope that doesn't mean it's been dumbed down and aimed at the mainstream. The 40K universe is indeed rich, and as a big fan of it, I really do hope they don't mess it up and make it a generic shooter fest aimed at the Gears audience.

But if they do this right, it will be one hell of a Warhammer game! :D

"Halo-killer" this, and "Gears of War-killer" that. If they had any confidence in their game at all they would let it stand on it's own merits.

"It's time to bring this incredible Warhammer 40k universe to everyone - and this is the game to do it," he said.

So, does this mean that it's coming out on consoles too? I very much doubt it :?

By aiming to be a Gears of War "Killer", you have already failed mr THQ big shot :(

Sorry but how many MMO's proclaim to be a WOW killer and fail everytime?

Set yourself out to make a good game, thats great in it's own right and you will "kill" the competion without ever thinking about them!!!!!

BTW I love 40k / GW franchise :p

...

ITS NOT THE MMO.
Its the Gear of War-esque Space Marine game that was leaked ages ago.
I'm not the greatest GoW fan, but even with a superior licence, they have to go a long way to better GoW in gameplay.
I'mma keep my eye on this, but I don't expect earth shattering results.

Speaking of Gears, why haven't CVG had anything on Beast Mode yet? I mean I'm not trying to prioritize your work for you or anything CVG, but surely that story would get more hits than Move box art, although that was a positively scintillating article.

Can we have a big feature on it please? It does look awesome.

What an idiot.
Gears of War killer? Dream on.
Gears has been smashing it for years and still looks and plays beautifully.
I'm not going to play it on principle due to the man from THQ coming out with such b*****ks.

Ok i am confused :?
Is there two different Warhammer 40000 games being developed? as I am seeing articles for Warhammer MMO coming and also Warhammer 40000 Space marine coming to all channels? are these the same game?
and to claim Space marines as a GoW killer does not sound like an MMO to me.
Heres a link to ign showing a video of Space Marine running on 360.

Anyone clarify this for me...please

I think you will find Warhammer has been "smashing" it a lot longer than Gears :wink:

If a developer really did do justice to the W40K franchise, it would be just about the best game ever!

Dawn of War II is the closest anyone has got, that is a very good game.

I hope this comes good.

What a load of hairy bullshit, just focus on making the game and not making fake promises like Lionhead
