Dawn of War: Soulstorm (Attn: m3730ra)

Postby shipwreck » Tue Oct 02, 2007 6:00 am

To many a gamers chagrin/delight, the boys at Relic are at it again, this time with some help from Iron Lore. As of now the details are as follows: two new races to fight with (bringing the total to 9...ye gods) including the Dark Eldar, the addition of air units to the game, and a new single player campaign similar to Dark Crusade but spanning a whole star system as opposed to one planet.

I, for one, am pumped since I've become such a Warhammer 40k nerd and because my poor ol' compy can't handle any new games. Soulstorm, named for the Dark Eldar's delicacey of choice, is due out in March - just in time for me birfday! Check out the Games for Windows article here.

The demo came out yesterday.

I haven't been able to pick it up since my poor ol' compy finally bit the dust. I had to go Mekboy and format, reinstall Windows, then spend an hour on Mrs shipwreck's Mac (:| ) finding the right ethernet driver to put Windows back together...anyway, I haven't played it yet so somebody let me know what they think of the Dark Eldar.

Forces seem to be conspiring against my playing pc games (SS gave me some weird CRC errors when I installed it) so I'll have to live vicariously through your post. :(

The CRC errors I used to get was because of my CD-ROM/Burner. I just got a brand name one (LG or Asus, I think), and it installed fine. Pretty much EVERY SINGLE new game I got gave me CRCs up to then.
God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

The problem is that there is no disc for the Soulstorm demo. It's a download.

I get the same errors reinstalling Dark Crusade but that doesn't make any sense either since I installed Dawn of War/Winter Assault without error from the same disc. Also, my DVD Rom is only about 7 months old and I've used to install maybe 2-3 games.
