eTouchdown: Blood Bowl 2 World Cup

And Also: Blood-To-Bowl Manager Revealed

It's a good year to be a Blood Bowl fan. Well, unless you're one of those folks who can't abide developer Cyanide.

Not only is a sequel to the relatively faithful and quietly successful 2009 PC adaptation inbound, but there's now also going to be Blood Bowl:…
