A new, narrated gameplay video has been posted. Needless to say, I'm pumped.

I know some of us were playing the beta (I'm looking at you Florp and Treb!) but did anyone pick up the retail game? It's been a while since I last bought a game, especially an RTS, and this has really been the only new release I've been terribly interested in. Then again, I'm barely playing the games I do have so maybe I'll wait...

Anyhoo, if you picked it up please let me know what you think of it! Multiplayer was okay and I'm not so sure I can stand another Space Marine campaign so somebody talk me into it.

Somehow I totally missed that they're working on a second expansion for DOW2. It's called Retribution and it's looking way better than Chaos Rising because you get to play as Freebooterz!! These are basically Ork Pirates.

I met a designer from Relic at my dance studio on Friday. They are making a Space Marine single player shooter. OMG.

Should be brutal (and hopefully not just a Gears Of War clone).

The guy said you can whip out your chainsword in a pinch and tear guys to pieces. Apparently it's rad. I'm pretty excited.

I stopped fighting it a ways back: I'm no good at FPS games (DOW especially) and do not want to put in the time to get good, so I don't really play anymore unless I'm craving some dakka dakka.

Co-op, on the other hand, I could get into.

I just finished the human campaign yesterday. Started a Chaos campaign with Faust. I'd be down for some Dakka.

Florp and I had some very fun comp-stompage yesterday!

Gotta figure out a way to do that more often. Maybe make it a Saturday lunch (or breakfast for Florp) tradition?
