A Date With A Space Marine

Do Space Marines go on dates? "You have the most gorgeous geneseed." "If I said you have a beautiful flamer, would you let me burn the heretic with it?" "In the grim darkness of the 41st millennium there is only war, and your eyes."

Anyway! Relic's upcoming orkshooter Space Marine has finally been granted something like a release date. It's been on the horizon for about 40,000 years already, but now all of a sudden it's turning up in August. This August, that is. So just five months until the Ultramarine's Captain Titus sticks his Power Fist into the maw of various non-human scum (which were earlier this week confirmed to include the forces of Chaos). 2011 sure is a busy year for expensive-looking video games.

Space Marine trailer (albeit an old one) below to aid with your remembrance.

I AM VERY MACHO. Also, that music so wants to segue into the Requiem for a Dream soundtrack.
