    Maybe thats why they self destructed WHFB and turned it into Age of Retards just before CA released the TW Warhammer game, I have always found that timing really bizarre.

    It is an action rpg, not a strategy game, so having it playable in both mouse\keyboard and controller make sense. I don't get your comment.

    I think D&D became more popular when they had popular video game crpgs using the pnp mechanics and not made up, fluff systems for retarded children. I don't know for certain, but I heard more about WotC and Hasbro during 3.5 than any time since, or any owners of D&D prior. I don't think people get sold on a pnp system because some fluff game with the same setting. Books may sell setting enough to drive sales of a pnp system, but I find it hard to believe a video game would increase sales of a pnp game due to setting alone.

    Sadly GW is centered around models and minis first, not pnp games or wargames.

    We were talking about WFRP though. But that would just strengthen the argument since it isn't something they see as valuable as their minis, so have nothing to lose by making a full fledge proper WFRP crpg game in the vein of ToEE.

    I say we all pool or resources and start a kickstarter for it with the promise Tim Cain will lead the game once he finishes his current one. Fuck licenses and contracts and getting people's permission - lets raise 5 million dollars and see what happens. Worst case scenario is no WFRP proper crpg by Tim Cain just like there isn't one now. But the best case scenario is worth all the laws we'll be breaking.

    Well the primary problem with making a WHFRP game is that WHFRP is p. shit if you aren't playing a one-shot joke game using the giant career book and totally random character generation so you end up with a party of hobos, drunkards, dung collectors, and such. If you haven't said "I throw my bag of shit at them" as your combat action, you haven't played WHFRP properly.

    The Age of Sigmar thing is more about the fact Geedubs' bigger quest, the one of batshit crazy litigation. That's why everyone now has silly names and anything vaguely normal (see, Bretonnian Knights) is simply squatted because Geedubs wants to get those sweet, sweet trademarks. They were kind of traumatized when they learned that they can't sue people for using the word "space" and "marine" together.

    In their minds they do. Who'd buy all those minis and play on table when you could do it on your computer.
    Best case scenarios usually are.

    It's funny how WHF is getting so many games yet AoS has got jack shit. Almost as if people liked WHF or something.

    Perhaps because now that WHF has been squatted, GW is not worried anymore about sales of minis. Or perhaps AoS is too generic to make a game out of it. Or again the argument games sales => less mini sales, but for AoS.

    As baud said, my guess too is more in regards to GW no longer caring about the vidya license. Geedubs used to have pretty crazy paranoia about video games eating away mini sales in the 00's, and assuming the thought persists over there odds are the license is essentially free-for-all territory now that they squatted WHFB almost wholesale.

    But seeing as they have released no game for AoS yet (two are announced, with only one for PC), it seems that the paranoia is still present for AoS. On the other hand there is a shit ton of WH 40K games, so either their paranoia is selective or the WH40K license is handled by different people.

    I would figure that it's entirely possible that Geedubs has to a degree lost control of the license after THQ's bankcruptcy, or alternatively sometime after Dawn of War they just got bigger offers in cash.

    EDIT: Sega probably did this to them:

    What's GW's buisness strategy now? Just draw a pentagram on the floor, fill a bucket of post-it notes with developers' names and thrown the bucket in the air and give the licence to whichever name lands inside it?. Or did they do that last year - now they write random developer' names on a wall and give a bucket of boiled spaghetti and shit to the monkeys at a zoo and go with whichever name sticks...

    Fuck it, I need to go back to playing DOW: Retribution.

    I've always enjoyed the lore of any Warhammer setting, but I could never get into any action RPG. I just can't do all the autistic clicking. Maybe if they made an action RPG with some kind of combat ai for your character, or an auto attack...

    The publisher Bigben has acquired the developer Eko Software: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/press...or_game_developing_joins_the_Bigben_Group.php

    With the recent acquisition of Cyanide Studios, this is part of their plan to be "one of the world leaders of the so-called AA video game segment" apparently.

    So this seems to be a kind of a diablo like in Warhammer world. It could be interesting if the mechanics of the game are well done and combat feels meaty.

    I dunno. Diablo will be a hard act to follow. In Diablo II, it always felt like you were hitting someone, the sound, the effects, everything, you know?
