Halo: Nightfall Teaser

The San Diego Comic Con is in full swing and as always there’s a deluge of coolness flooding the room. One year I’ll have the money and the wherewithal to go.

As usual the guys at 343 Industries don’t disappoint. Aside from all the awesomeness of Halo 5: Guardians & Halo: The Master Chief Collection there’s also a Ridley Scott produced series in production called Halo: Nightfall.

Details from news.xbox.com:

Taking place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: Nightfall follows the origin story of legendary manhunter Jameson Locke (Mike Colter) and his team as they are caught in a horrific terrorist attack while investigating terrorist activity on the distant colony world of Sedra. Led by Locke, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) agents are forced to coordinate with a Sedran commander with a remarkable history and deep-rooted mistrust of ONI. As the plot unravels, they’re drawn to an ancient, hellish artifact where they’re forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives. Agent Locke is a new character in the Halo universe poised to play a major role inHalo 5: Guardians releasing on Xbox One in 2015.

And just coz, here’s a still of Ben Affleck as Batman. I’m sorry but he’s the most Batman looking Batman ever.

Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade Pre-Alpha Gameplay

Graphics aside, because it is pre-alpha, this so far looks like the Space Marine multiplayer. Which I personally thought sucked. One must assume there’s going to be some plot and many places to explore.

But right now here’s some poorly rendered Space Marines having fisty cuffs with some poorly rendered Chaos Space Marines…

Space Hulk: Deathwing Teaser Trailer

Holy fucking shit!

I couldn’t care less what this game is about – this trailer looks immense. And finally gives tell to why Dark Angels were the first army I properly collected as a young hobbyist.

However, I’ve been a good boy and looked into it and oh my poor pants. Space Hulk: Deathwing will be a first person shooter available on the XBox One.

I’ll be watching this one very closely because it has the potential to be incredible. Or a miserable pile of shit like all the other Space Hulk shooters that have preceded it.

The Lord Inquisitor Grey Knights Teaser

The Lord Inquisitor has been in development for a loooooooooong time. Mainly because Games Workshop agreed to let the fan based project live but only with Aaron Demski-Bowden writing the script. So having thrown out the old script so it went back to a blank piece of paper.

So here’s the new trailer with no odd artefact and shaky voice over.

Halo 2: Anniversary WIP Gameplay

And no sooner have I seen, drooled over, and shared with you the announcement trailer of The Master Chief Collection does a video hit the interwebs of work in progress gameplay footage of Halo 2: Anniversary.

I reported on this as a possibility for the 360 quite some time ago and it’s great to see that it wasn’t without foundation, albeit as a collection on the XBox One. It does look a little bit XBox 360 but it is in development and it’s the updating of a 10-year-old game from two consoles ago so it can be forgiven. For me the biggest problem was the shaky story which was supposed to be the Empire Strikes Back of the story but never quite delivered. Here’s hoping the re-release will be up to snuff…

Warhammer 40,000 7th Edition Teaser?

The below has hit the interwebs. Whilst vaguer than normal it coincides with news that rules and starter sets have been pulled from the Games Workshop website and stores. So it could mean that Warhammer 40,000 7th edition is about to hit.

There’s been plenty of rumours about the boxset contents. Blood Angels and Orks seemed to have been one that stuck around, but as always we’ll wait and see rather than guess. And we won’t have to wait for long. Time to reallocate the monthly budget methinks…

Warhammer 40k Imperial Knight Teaser

With just 5 days for us to take out small loans, rinse our credit cards, raid our children’s piggy banks or steal their new shoe money the Games Workshop have released a teaser trailer for the new Imperial Knight.

As per usual it shows feck all and gives us know indication of price but, hey, it’s gotta a pretty crest.
