As far as I’m concerned, the important tasks for any new Blood Bowl 2 trailer to accomplish are as follows:
1) Show me which races will be available so that I don’t expect to be writing about an Ultimate Skaven Edition in three years time.
2) Attempt to convince me that the camera movement and turn-flow will be as smooth as a freshly shampooed dwarf beard.
3) Go some way toward showing that turn-based tactical trouncing is a bigger draw than ‘comic’ commentary.
The video below does not accomplish these things.
Just two races shown then – the obvious choice of orcs and humans – and while I admire the fact that the players look a bit like animated miniatures, the footage is far too dramatic to inform as to how the interface and camera control will function. And then there’s the commentary. Zing.
If the league mode crams in a proper management feature set, all will be forgiven.
