This War Of Mine Update 1.4 Improves Scenario Editor

This War Of Mine [official site] is a sobering experience. Like most of us, I’ve never been involved in an actual war, thus any knowledge I have regarding the atrocities of conflict has been accrued from modern media. This War Of Mine may be a fictional, video game take on these realities, but its Sims’-esque slant on war zone resource management delivers something which, at the very least, feels real from a position of relative ignorance.

Update 1.4, named “New Beginning”, adds Steam Workshop support, meaning players can now share the scenarios they invent in the game’s editor suite.

We’re Skaven, We’re Skaven!

Classic period Alec design here.

Remember the above campaign we ran in the golden age of Rock Paper Shotgun? Well, in the most recent letter from the Mythic Producer Carrie Gouskos she revealed the coming of player controlled Skaven. Not as a faction, but in part of a new Skaven-themed Realm-versus-realm zone, where both Destruction and Order players get a chance to play THE MOST SPLENDID OF WARHAMMER RACES. This makes me suspect something akin to Lord of the Rings Monster-play may be in the offing. The rat-related details are found in full below…

Consolvania’s Installation Problem Fixed!

Clearly the biggest news of the day is the fact Consolevania have managed to get their installation of WAR working after it not doing so last time. Which involved Project Lead Paul Barnett calling up and having a yabber at them, which I suspect is a technical support offer which won’t be extended to the rest of WAR’s playerbase. The full exchange is immortalised in the video beneath the cut, plus lingering footage of a bond girl.

Consolevania Goes To WAR in Series 4

'I'll even forgive them for that Nu-skool journalist sketch. Well, mostly forgive.

Another one of our favourite things has sort of come back into life. We’ve only mentioned consolevania in passing before, but the web-TV show (which sprouted TV spin-off Videogaiden) has returned for a series 4. Except rather than their traditional shows, they’re doing a rolling-feature model, with youtube videos added as and when they’re finished. Thankfully, one of the first three is PC-game related, thus justifying a linkage. Rab is embedding himself in Warhammer Online to return in the world’s most long-form review. That he seems to be even more of geek than yours truly bodes well, but… well, surely nothing can go wrong?

Warhammer Online, On The Road, Rocking Out

In a move that’s a little less Led Zeppelin and inching into Spinal Tap territory, Mythic have done a punky-metal song about Warhammer and put together a video for it featuring footage from the last two years on the road. And it looks like this…

Brief cameos of RPSers Matt Kumar (00:34) and myself (00:36). I’m having some manner of fit.

RPS Warhammer Guilds Update

This was the Warhammer PQ conclusion I was talking about on the podcast earlier.
About time for a general update on all things Guild Based and has generally been pillaging for over a week now. It’s still on the ever-busy Karak Hirn. There’s been a server cloning thing, which means that we could move the Guild, but general feeling is to stay at Karak – and discussed on the new Warhammer Guild Forums. Equally, Poisoned Sponge has actually got into gear and sorted out the Order side of this endeavour, which rather than actually being at Karak Eight Peaks is off at Tor Arnoc instead. Details on the actual forum and the latest details on how to join the guilds beneath the cut.

RPS Demands: Rats For The Rat Blog!

There's got to be a Skaven/Raving gag somewhere, but I can't manage it.
RPS is not unreasonable. We grasp why the starting races of Warhammer were chosen – three matched pairs of dark mirrors who have every reason to be at each others throats forever. We also know that Mythic’s next step will be reintegrating the cut cities and classes, which we’re pleased to hear will be totally free. We’re fine with that. We understand. However, when all that’s done, we’re going to tell you what you’re going to do next.

You’re going to let us play Skaven. Because otherwise, we’re going to cut you up with knives.

RPS WAR Super-Friends: The Formening: 5pm!

Will anyone be our friend?

Edit – and…no. People – including us – are being thrown back to the login screen whenever we try to fly to the Inevitable City. Impossible City, more like. So we’ll try again tomorrow. Sorry!

To form the previously discussed guild, you need a party of six people in The Inevitable City. Alec, Me and Ollie Eurogamer aren’t six people, no matter how hard we try. So we invite anyone who fancies helping out to turn up at the Guild Registar in the Inevitable City at 5pm UK Time. Remember – you’ll need to take a little trot from the starting zone and they’ll probably be queues to get on the server (of up to 30 minutes, unhappily), so best to start considerably earlier. Clearly, the more people who turn up, the more people we can invite to the guild immediately. The more the merrier. Or rather, the destructionier, as we’re bastards, so not too merry. Look out for the Chaos Chosen ViolentTrevor, who’ll be yours truly, and Loaf, who is Alec, and will probably be grumpy.

And no, we still haven’t decided on the guild name yet. Isn’t it exciting!
