TITANS! Dawn Of War Ultimate Apocalypse Does Epic 40K

By Alec Meer on June 2nd, 2015.

TITANS

I would love to froth at you about the new release of an ultromod for the original Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Soulstorm, which transforms it into a simalcrum of Epic / Apocalypse 40K. Genuinely would love to. Epic was my first Games Workshop game, and because the first things we’re exposed to are always the ones we believe to be the best, its grand-scale, massed army, enormous Titan-centric battles remain the only way I think 40K should be played. Unfortunately I’ve had more luck trying to elicit empathy in cats than I have trying to download ‘grand release’ of Ultimate Apocalypse at a sensible speed, so can’t tell you much for at least another three hours. But I am going to point at it and say ‘look! Look! Wouldn’t it be amazing if this was as good as it sounded?’

Company Of Waaagh! It’s The Humble Relic Bundle

By Alice O'Connor on May 29th, 2015.

If we seem cynical and suspicious of the many Warhammer 40,000 games we’ve seen in recent years, it’s because we judge them against the high-water mark of Relic Entertainment’s 40k games. Dawn of War with its real-time strategising, Dawn of War II with its added action-RPG-ish flair, and Space Marine with its head-stomping are as good as we’ve had 40k in recent years. So huzzah! For the next week you can get the lot for just a few quid.

The latest Humble Weekly Bundle focuses on Relic, with a load of Dawn of War, Space Marine, and Company of Heroes games depending on how much you fancy paying. CoH is good too.

Purified: Dawns Of War Ditching GameSpy And GFWL

By Alice O'Connor on May 29th, 2014.

If I were an hilarious satirist I'd label the Dreadnought as 'GFWL' or something. That'd be wild.

In the future of Warhammer 40,000, humanity cling desperately to faltering technology they no longer understands, knowing once crucial systems break they can’t repair them and everyone will be doomed. Learning a lesson from all this, Relic is stripping out wonky old multiplayer tech from its WH40K: Dawn of War games, replacing GameSpy and Games for Windows – Live with warming Steam. And now I’m suffering frightful visions of a steampunk 40K spin-off. Brr. Chilling.
