This is just another nail in the coffin of the golden age of pc gaming.

Just like the golden age of TV, it is getting killed off by corporate greed to maximize profits in the short term regardless if it kills the whole market eventually. Its been a fun run, but the end is in sight folks.

Given how the whole TW series has been in a downward spiral, I see yet another failure looming here. Warhammer games seemed doomed, companies seem to think that buying the IP is all it takes, and sadly it is enough to sell a few boxes in the short run, at least until word gets out on the street about how bad the game really is. I love the Warhammer IP, its a shame so few titles do it justice.

Note to self: WWE means something to do with the world of professional scripted buffoonery, delete it from my remote, and skip it if encountered elsewhere.

Hexagons, please go back to board games.

The busy screens of the trailer, are full of chugging, speed up/slow downs, and less than fluid animation.

The same boring gameplay, but far busier screens.

So, the free to play market is heading into a blood bath phase as the market base of players continues to shrink.

Not that EA didn't see it coming and milked the cash shop whales for all they were worth, while driving off the other 80% of players who didn't spend.

This is just the high profile beginning, look for it to spread accross the F2P spectrum.

It's 2015, who cares about top down scrolling sprite based gameplay?

So many bad new/old games coming out these days, makes U weep for the state of games now.

So are we talking basically a Skyrim knockoff but with a much better color pallette, better art direction, and minus the stupid 'Fus Do" BS.

Sci-Fi and melee weapons is an oxymoron.

This is not Sci-Fi but high fantasy, with OP magic posing as tech.

Also points subtracted for the 'lets show clips of an end game toon wasting starting area mobs' where each skill one shots the group, unlike how you will have to chain spam the same skills for an eternity to take down end game mobs.

Been there, done that (Anarchy Online, GW2, Wow, Perfect World etc.)

What kind of loser does one have to be to be one of the suckers that plays this? You might as well just burn you cash for entertainment.

Funny how this supposedly new and original game totally copied "Legendary Weapons" from Perfect World. Not just the name, but the entire process is close to identical.

Went back recently and found the game mostly deserted.

If your thinking of trying this game, I hope you like jumping puzzles and 8bit retro mini-games.

Yea I know you don't buy gold in GW2, you buy gems, same pay to win scenario. GW2 is deserted today. MMO's are on their last legs.

Plenty of other games already officially sell gold, and guess what, the bots are still there, the gold farmers are still around, and the worst thing is the game is now officially pay to win. Prices of everything goes sky high, and grinding without a bot becomes futile.
Sad day for WoW, the corporate weasels have won, short term cash flow will increase, but a year from now the player base will have shrunk and be comprised soley of deep pocket whales.

16 bit is short hand for "we were not good enough to work with modern up to date graphic engines, so maybe we can make a few bucks off this outdated primitive unpolished turd."

So basically a slightly updated knockoff of Supreme Commander, eh?

Is there anything unique or new here?

Where do we start?

Severe Pop Out - distant things are not visible and then pop out.

Friendly Fire - Shoot up your own capital ships while you miss those pesky fighters.

Those enemy fighters, can't fly for crap.

Looks like a rail shooter.
