Dawn of War 3 trailer battles over mythical pointy stick

A dramatic new trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 3 [official site] is here, which means lots of Space Marines and Eldar wanking on about prophecies, some wandering world, the Spear of Khaine, lords, betrayal, and other gubbins until Orks roll up looking for “da pointy stikk.” Bless your murderous hearts, Orks. This cinematic-o-gameclip video introduces the broad story in Relic’s RTS and yes, it does basically boil down to finding a pointy stick. But what better item to fight over? If you can win a fight without a pointy stick, just imagine how powerful you’ll be once you get one! Read the rest of this entry »

Vroom! Motorsport Manager launches mod support

Modding support has arrived in Motorsport Manager [official site], letting sportsdads fiddle with the game’s guts in many ways. Perhaps you’ll replace car models with real Formula 1 vehicles. Or create obscene liveries. Or replace videos with cats being cute or some serious Formula 1 cutscenes. Or… a pleasing amount can be changed, and I imagine folks will soon crack on with some fairly expansive overhauls. Make it into a game about racing hovercars. Skateboards. Hoverboards.

Total War: Arena dev diary offers peek at rework

Total War: Arena

“I drove my tractor through your haystack last night (ooh arr ooh arr)” announced The Wurzels as they bragged, using farming metaphors, about their prowess in the real-time strategy genre. Well, good news, The Wurzels, because Total War: Arena [official site] – the Creative Assembly free-to-play game which sort of went quiet but then returned with a publishing agreement with Wargaming – now has a dev diary about what’s been going on.

Endless Space 2 adds eggheaded clonefolk faction

Look, I trust you’re a sensible sort who’d sooner pluck out thine eye than read video game loreblasts but… check out this backstory for the latest faction added to strategy ’em Endless Space 2 [official site] on its journey through early access.

“Incredibly wealthy and only slightly less deranged, Horatio was a trillionaire who left to discover his own star cluster. Finding a planet sprinkled with labs of ancient cloning technology left by the Endless, the boredom soon drove Horatio to create a race of allies, servants, and slaves who were every bit as gorgeous as the most beautiful person in the universe–Horatio. Once the planet was repopulated, Horatio the First had only to look up, regard the stars, and realise how much beautiful they, too, would be if they were filled with… Horatios. The rest, as they say, is history.”

Amazing. And with an egg head like that! Let’s crack on with the rest of the update. Read the rest of this entry »

Mon then! Total Warhammer unleashes The White Dwarf

The White Dwarf is not a euphemism. One does not pay a visit to The White Dwarf, pump him, poke him, sit on him, drain him, slurp him, or shake him, unless one wishes to lose an eye, then an arm, another eye, a rib, another rib, yet another rib etc. No, The White Dwarf is Grombrindal, a legendary (and possibly mystical) Warhammer warrior, and he’s now arrived in Total Warhammer [official site] as a Legendary Hero free for everyone. He was previously given to folks who popped into Games Workshop shops for vouchers but DON’T DO THAT, THAT’S HOW THEY GET YOU. Read the rest of this entry »

Motorsport Manager adding laptop-friendly 2D mode

Motorsport Manager [official site] made its first appearance on PC last month as Sega slipped cars without football into their management sim portfolio next to football without cars. Our Adam wasn’t as taken with it as he is Football Manager, though he says that’s likely because he’s more into kicking. But hey, the game will soon welcome a wider potential audience as an update this week is adding a “2D mode” which looks less pretty but will allow the game to run on slower computers and laptops.
