Space Marine Release Date, Cinematic

A new cinematic trailer from Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine offers some cut-scenes from Relic's upcoming Warhammer 40,000 action/RPG. The clip features a bit of exposition (in authentic British English accents) and even more explosions, and also touts preorders of the game, saying they plan on a September 6, 2011 release. Thanks Grudgebearer.

Blue, for shame. There's no such thing as a British accent, those are English accents.

British accent is acceptable as well, actually, especially since "english" accents aren't the same depending on which part of England you're from, either.

There's an explanation from the British Library of the differences in British accents (their terminology).

The British library link is describing accents across the British Isles. That also includes Scottish, Irish and Welsh accents. The only acceptable use of "a British accent" is when you're not differentiating between English, Welsh, Scottish or Irish. That the regional accents sound different is no more a reason for not using "English" to describe them as it would be to say a Texan accent isn't American because it's not the same as a Californian accent.

Blame devolution for this, if you like. Britain spent 300 years suppressing the cultures of the countries inside it, to the point that Britain and England were synonymous and interchangeable even to the people who lived here. Since devolution the Scots and the Welsh have rediscovered their status as independent nations, and England is following suit. Could be in decades to come there will be no Britain, just four independent countries in the British Isles.

For now England=Britain is becoming annoying to more and more of us.

In some of the narraged videos I have seen on gametrailers, they have some marketing type spouting on about how Space Marines don't use cover. What a load of shit. This person has never read a 40K book. Space Marines in the fiction, which this game is based on, use cover and ALMOST EVERYONE OF THEM WEARS THEIR FUCKING HELMET.

Nerd-rage over.

I hope that the game is good on the P.C. considering it's probably going to be a straight console port.

Sure looks like it. I'll definitely be waiting on a lot of reviews/demo before even considdering this. Even then, it'll probably be a sale on Steam before I take the plunge.

Warhammer or Warhammer 40k? There is a distinction there.

Same day as Dead Island eh? I would guess the latter provides a lot more value.
