    TW:WH is going to cost at least $300 for the finished product and the strategic and battle maps still feel neutered. Sega was a mistake.

    They are selling it for new 60$ as a second game, thus we can have second thread.

    Sega is what saved them from dying in Activision's hands. Whether you like it or not, they couldn't have it better, they're churning out new titles on a constant basis and selling craploads of copies on a "dead platform". Find me one publisher these days that doesn't have a ridiculous DLC policy? EA? Lol. Ubisoft? Heh, nope. Paradox? Hahaha, fuck no.

    Yeah, i wonder how many people will buy this and never bother with the first game? It's nothing but glorified standalone DLC.

    People might complain about 60$ standalone DLC, thus they must call it a game.

    Looks like it will have: High elves. Dark elves. Lizardmen. And Skaven.

    The series has gotten progressively worse since Sega was in charge. I have yet to see another publisher push out $20 faction DLC that wasn't playtested properly and ends up breaking the campaign map until they patch it a few months down the line like Wood Elves. The worst part is apologists like you gobble their shit up and defend their incompetence.

    Activision or any other developer would definitely push for better, more complex mechanics, better AI, better maps, no DLC and DRM policy and higher overall quality. They would also give them at least 5 years to develop their games and gladly push back deadlines for extensive QA and testing.

    Also, i'm not defending anyone, you goddamn moron. All i said is they're in a good place as a company and their future is quite secure for now. They wouldn't exist anymore if they stayed with Activision.

    Now go on, make your retarded concussions and projections again, fucking retard.

    Their future is secure as a mediocre, lazy developer that survives by nickel and diming drones like you. TW:Warhammer with its 3 games + overpriced DLC tacked onto every one makes SC2 look good.

    I can't be bothered to read all that, but I really hope they're doing something to improve strategic layer at least a bit. It's literally 1/10 right now and really dragging the game down.

    If by "improve the strategic layer" you mean "We can't be fucked to make engaging strategy mechanics or implement naval combat so here's an ebin!11 scripted campaign for 10/10 cinematic immershuns".

    Remember "Shogun I" was when Turnbull was assisting as a consultant and loved it.
    "Rome I" was work of passion.
    Both medievals were nice.

    Now, it's about earning money.

    Reminds me of L4D2 coming out one year after the first game. Even Valve got a lot of hate for that.

    And? Real special forces operators worked with Splash Damage on Medal of Honor Warfighter. Oblivion had soil erosion. Far Cry Primal uses a language created by historians and lingustics experts.

    Original Shogun still laguhably ahistorical. MoH:W is a shitty CoD clone. Oblivion is Oblivion, and Far Cry Primal is a lazy reskin of FC4.
