Jumping on the ‘hammer bandwagon…
Purge the Xenos – Earn a 5 star Fury rating in Dawn of War II Gamerscore = 10 Unlocked on 08/09/2009
Quite literally out of nowhere I suddenly have reignited my previously mild interest in the Warhammer 40,000 universe with the onset of two releases, Kill Team out now on Xbox LIVE Arcade and Space Marine, a Gears-style shooter out this September. I first noticed the release of Kill Team on XBLA this week, while investigating that release I uncovered that Space Marine would follow a little over a month later. It is starting to look like my Warhammer 40K collection is soon to triple.
Dawn of War II: a couple of years ago I got curious about Warhammer 40K and real-time strategy, and with Dawn of War II offering achievements I thought that DoW2 would be a good litmus test for PC gaming and RTS gameplay. While I played very little of the game overall, I did find it to be a pretty cool game and an RTS I could handle. Was never sure I would get back to it, but if these other two games work out, I may feel compelled to.
Kill Team: The game that reignited my interest. While I have not purchased yet I did play the demo and thought it was a cool shooter with a cool license behind it. I will likely pick this up tonight so I will have something a little fresh to play. Also by playing it I can earn an unlock for the next game…
Space Marine: I heard the name before, but I had no idea what it was or what it was attached to. Now I am in the process of perhaps pre-ordering the Special Edition. The games looks like a fun Gears of War clone, and there is nothing wrong with that. More on this game as I get my chance to play it.
