This game looks great. I thought this was a PSP exclusive for some reason. Gonna get me sumadis.
I found the demo wicked boring. But, then again, I was solo-ing it. If this had come out a few years ago, when I was still in college and still had roommates, I probably would've seen more value in it. It seems like a well-made top-down dual stick shooter, with some great looking visuals (especially for a $9 DLG). But it's just too boring as a solo experience. Still looking forward to Space Marine though. Also, totally random; the visuals in some places remind me of the aesthetic from that old Midway fighting game for N64, BIO F.R.E.A.K.S. Not really sure why, but it totally did.
Looks like the G.I. Joe game
i loved that "if i hit LB it goes in to holey shit mode." i have now renamed my LB button to holey shit mode.
The more I see these dual-stick shooters done really well, the more I want a Smash TV comeback.
I was expecting this to be pretty bad but as others have mentioned the lighting and sound and animation combined to pretty cool tactile effect. I'd try this out (though more likely if it were on sale).
This reminds me of Apocalypse for the PSX.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQpPajduzOc
Yeah it does!
If I just listened to it instead of watching the video I would think that this was Bullet Storm they were playing.
If it's green...LIGHT SABER ON!!!
This looks awesome, love the 40k Universe.
Might have to pick this up.
I liked the part where Brad chose a chainsword character, decided to forgo his chainsword, then complained about the ineffectiveness of his gun.
wow this is a complete re-skin of alien swarm
Which was pretty much identical to Alien Breed and Shadowgrounds. I get much more of a Snowblind studios' console ARPG vibe from this, something in the style of the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel games.
I did get some heavy deja vu of something I played in the mid or late 90s though, but can't quite figure out what it was, someone else mentioned Apocalypse for PSX, which seems close, but I think the one I remember was PC or high-end Amiga.
I liked the quick look, sure I yelled at the screen about some obvious stuff going on, but hey they still lived through it and were able to show off the game.
Picked this up day one, Love it so far, although there are a few camera glitches here and there that bug me.

Stopping action just before the good stuff starts constantly to tell you everything you need to know even if you know it or not: The worst of learn by doing and learn before doing. Lighting looks good.
Bought. Local coop needs to be in more games.
I like 40K as much as the next guy, but if they're gonna recycle all the assets from Dawn of War 2, at least make something interesting. This has low effort all over it.
@Fattony12000: Yeah one of my friends introduced me to 40k novels with the Eisenhorn Omnibus and I immediately picked up Gaunt's Ghosts and Ravenor when I finished. I really need to start on the Horus Heresy books!
@SoulEdgeSlayer: I have no problem with it I would just prefer that they did both. My gamer friends won't want to play co op because they don't get their achievements and my GF is only willing to play certain games. I bought this last night so we will see if I can convince her to play it.
Once again I am sad about the local co op only feature :(
Really? So many games these days drop local co op in favor of an online only experience that it's kinda ridiculous. Me and my fiancee look for every local co op game that we can find! If possible, what other games are local only?
However, this doesn't mean that they couldn't (or shouldn't) have put it in here.
If its green, don't leave uncleaned
Seems like a cool game. I've never played 40k, so It's interesting to see one of the games.
This looks awesome, even if it's 90% recycled from DoW2.
As far as Brad and Vinny not understanding the control pad screen that was up for like 5 seconds goes, it was probably pretty hard to read. It was pretty low contrast and I've heard them complain about how shitty their TV is before. This would also explain them standing next to like four power-ups for an hour before picking them up. Get a new TV guys!
The weapon flash were giving me a headache... which is strange because I usually don't have a problem with blinking lights.
Slightly agonising waiting for Brad to figure out that he has a close combat specialist. Though it is the fault of the game for not making this more clear
"I am more gun than man!" Hahaha... great.
Pick the guy with the big sword -> Complain about the gun power the entire quick look.
Usually i can tolerate Brads complaining, but come on man!
I think i understand Vinny's déjà vu:
Aww... I thought this was Space Marine.
Sure, looks like fun.
Brad's lack of game-sense continues to entertain and frustrate.

YOU CANTDude yes, Dan Abnett is great, Soul Hunter is one of the first books that had me saying 'Holy shit that was amazing."Soul Hunter is by Aaron Dembski-Bowden, not Dan Abnett :P It's also the only 40k book I have handed to people that don't know the setting, and have had them exclaim that it was awesome (and have gone on to read Blood Reaver, the sequel). Eisenhorn is great, but I found the denseness of the setting is compounded by the first-person POV, as well as the fact that first book throws a lot of shit at you (Inquisition, Chaos, nulls/pariahs, etc). Soul Hunter kind of throws you in as well, but the use of Septimus and Octavia as introductions to the setting is very well done. Honestly, ADB is a fantastic author and a huge inspiration for me, and he's only a youngin too. Heartily recommend Soul Hunter to anyone that enjoys good, dark (very dark) science fiction or fantasy.

Fuck you are right, either way Soul Hunter was amazing. Can't wait to get the 2nd one later next week.
@Majkiboy: If you borrow a disc-based game from your brother and play it on your account, you do get achievements. But playing co-op with someone on their copy of a game is a different story, and I don't see why anyone should get achievements for doing that.
And they shall know no fear! For the emperor!!!
Vinny's orc impressions were spot on
@VinnyCheck out Dan Abnett's Eisenhorn trilogy, it's a great set of books from a great 40K writer. He gives you a slightly different take on the whole Warhammer universe, as he's dealing with a type of character not often seen in the games.http://www.amazon.com/Eisenhorn-Warhammer-40-000-Omnibus/dp/1844161560/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1310672231&sr=1-1The first book is a decade old now!He also did Gaunt's Ghosts, again, he gives you a wild ride with a bunch of non Space Marine guys and gals. The first three books in the series will give you a great taste of what to expect.http://www.amazon.com/Gaunts-Ghosts-Founding-Dan-Abnett/dp/1844163695/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1310672617&sr=1-1 Dan Abnett is definitely the man to stick with for your first foray into the 40K Black Library. AND THAT GOES FOR THE REST OF YOU!
So true, Dan Abnett is king.
Looks suprisigly good for such a stealth realease ! If it only had online CO-OP it would be a must buy for sure.

Easier then that. If it has Dan Abnett or Graham McNeil on the front get stuck in. Eisenhorn and Ravenor (Abnett) for the feel of 40k universe and The Ultramarine novels (quite partial to those) for a bit Space Marine ass kicking
The game looks very standard but I am slightly tempted just because it is 40k, if it was 400 points I would snap it up.
I love how Brad is constantly running away... When he is playing a melee character.
This game looks fun.
Everyone has made comments about how difficult it is to talk coherently and play at the same time. I assume that's why it always seems like Brad isn't paying attention to anything on the screen.
Gameplay doesn't look that good, but I love the ork body parts flying about as stuff blows up.
