Blood Bowl: Death Zone sprints out of early access and into the end zone

It's odd to think that Blood Bowl is such a regular fixture on PC now that we've got side-games quietly coming out, but that's exactly what Blood Bowl: Death Zone is. Exiting early access today, it's a budget-priced real time spinoff of Cyanide Studio's tabletop adaptation series. Two players, RTS-style controls and fast, five-minute four-a-side matches. You set the plays, then micro-manage one player at…

Vampire: The Masquerade “Narrative RPG” coming from The Council developers

Currently with no title of its own (beyond the series branding), publisher Bigben Interactive announced today that among their "2019 and beyond" lineup is a Vampire: The Masquerade "narrative RPG" developed by Big Bad Wolf, the folks behind the episodic historical murder-mystery The Council. Also coming is Blood Bowl 3, once again developed by Cyanide, with plans to launch a new digital iteration alongside the…

The Cold Gods: Blood Bowl II Adds Norse For Free

I thoroughly enjoyed Blood Bowl II [official site]. A huge part of that enjoyment comes from the base rules of Blood Bowl itself, which create a tactical game so compact - in both duration and fieldspace - that it's almost claustrophobic. The slightest error can lead to a turnover and a defeat, and the riskiest plays occasionally see the entire run of play overturned in…

Blood Bowl 2 Is Beautiful, Brutal And Improved

I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed Blood Bowl [official site] until I got my hands on a preview build of the sequel to Cyanide's digital version. The concept is immediately appealing to me - a violent sport in the Warhammer Fantasy universe - and each match is a condensed tactical battle, short enough to burn through in a short lunchbreak but capable of plugging into…

We Don’t Go To Skavenholm: Blood Bowl 2

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Skaven are the greatest of the Warhammer Fantasy races. Just this morning, I took some time out to write a series of furious letters to the BBC regarding their refusal to fund my all-Skaven series of Dickens adaptations. Our Mutual Pestilens is a surefire hit and Tiny Verminkin would help our new Christmas Carol to dethrone the Muppets.…

Blood Bowl Is Unbalanced And That’s Why It’s Good

I recently spoke to Sylvain Sechi, project manager of Cyanide Studio’s forthcoming Blood Bowl 2, about their new adaptation of Games Workshop’s game of fantasy football. I had an ulterior motive, though. I didn’t just want to ask him about when the game is coming out and what the new team will be like. I wanted to selfishly hassle him about not including some of…

Blood Bowl 2 Interview: The Interface, Leagues, And DLC

I blame Tolkien. He wrote Orcs like football hooligans and so Games Workshop's idea of them actually playing football – albeit a version of American football where mutilations are encouraged – makes some sort of sense. The judgemental timer of Steam says I’ve played Blood Bowl more than a lot of other games in my library, more than plenty of games I play without having…

Maim, Threat And Match: Blood Bowl 2

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…

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. (I think they try to do a lot of interesting, ambitious things, but often end up fluffing them). 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:…

Wot I Think: Dungeonbowl

I’ve always wanted to try Blood Bowl, mostly due to Kieron’s amazing diary of his Skaven team’s inaugural season, so you can imagine my delight when Jim asked me to review stand-alone expansion Dungeonbowl. At last! I was so happy I tucked my t-shirt over my face and performed the traditional foot-to-ball “Frivolous Dance”. My flat’s a bit small for it, mind, and I ended…

The RPS Blood Bowl Cup Could Be Yours!

Did you know that Rock, Paper, Shotgun has an active Blood Bowl community? It does! Our forumites, they can't get enough of that turn-based sport, or the match reports, the injuries, everything hanging on a single simulated dice roll, all that good stuff. If you own Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition and want to get involved with our most friendly of gaming communities, now's the time.…

Skull-To-Ball: Blood Bowl World Cup 2011

Registrations for the Blood Bowl World Cup 2011 are now open, although it's frankly as clear as mud (churned beneath the boot of a team of dirty orcs) exactly how you do that. There are some details here and here, but there doesn't seem to be an actual entry form, because there are no links where there should be links. Anyway, there will once again…

Score! Blood Bowl Legendary Edition Out

More stadiums! More star-players! A new Story mode! More than double the number of playable races, including Ogres, Nurgle, Necromantic and High Elves! Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition has been released, and it's all a bit much for a Friday morning. I haven't even had my tea yet. If you already own Blood Bowl, Cyanide is offering a 33% discount on the Legendary Edition if you…

Legendary 30% Off For Previously Bowlers

After the eyebrow-raising price the original game came out at, I was expecting to be asked to pay full whack for the Blood Bowl Legendary Edition. Mr Dixon tells me that Cyanide have announced that anyone who owns a previous edition of Blood Bowl will get 30% off the new version. You just enter your code into the shop, which will be up in October.…

I Want My Mummy: Blood Bowl Khemri

If I said that today Cyanide reveal the Blood Bowl Khemri, would you be excited? If you don't know the Khemri are, no, you wouldn't. They're Egyptian skeletons and mummies and shit! Them, playing a hyper-violent American-Football-esque game? That's probably worth money, and that's exactly what they're up to in the forthcoming Blood Bowl: Legendary edition. You can go and see their screenshots here. Regular…

Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition Update

The word's out on two of the twelve new teams featuring in Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition, which arrives at the end of this year. The word, and also screenshots. The Pro Elves aren't to be confused with the game's existing Wood Elves, because they're tougher than Wood Elves and as such would probably beat you up. The second team, the Ogres, offer unmatched brutality at…

Getting Short: Blood Bowl Halflings

I suspect this isn't exactly worth a post, but it amused me. The previously announced before-Christmas Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition has just revealed the first images of their Halfling team. And they amused me, because they just scream doomed, and recalled me of a teenage Blood Bowl game I played against my brother with a pure team of halflings versus a pure team of Ogres,…
