Our Adam got to play a preview version of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III [official site] in July, reporting back with tales of Space Marines stomping heads, weathering waves of Eldar reinforcements, over-extending and leaving his base vulnerable, and stomping around with a giant stompy mech. Good tales, Adam. If you fancy seeing the mission he played for yourself, handily the folks at Games Pot have now recorded a 50-minute video showing their attempt.
What a treat: 50 minutes of backseat gaming! 50 minute of yelling at them to watch their flanks, urging them to advance, shouting at their trivial use of the orbital laser, and calling them turtling scrubs. At least, I assume that’s why Games Pot made that video.
Heck, if you want to shout more, I’ve just noticed the folks at cheery RPS fanzine PC Gamer have recorded their own forty-minute attempt:
See, Games Pot? Forty minutes. I TOLD YOU you were turtling. This backseat gaming lark is a hoot!
Dawn of War III is due out in 2017.
