Links.

I'm pretty fucking stoked about this, more money put into Relic means (hopefully) better products and from the article they say they are revealing a new game next month. My money is down on Dawn of war 3, just sayin.

Haven't picked it up yet, but I really want to. I'm sure Steam's Christmas sale will remedy that.

maybe they are counting my 99 cent purchase of space marine on OnLive in their numbers :P

Good news. Enjoyed the game, and the multiplayer is fun (if laggy). Would probably play it more if any of my friends had picked it up. High sales means likelihood of a sequel (eventually), which I'd certainly look forward to. For now, I'm eagerly awaiting the first footage of Dawn of War III.

Good to hear, I'll be buying this sometime around Christmas (possibly on sale if it goes on sale during the Steam sale).

Nice to hear, it's a pretty good game.

Will be interesting to see if they stick to their guns with not making a direct sequel - but instead leading directly into the MMO (which reportedly plays similarily to Space Marine?) when that is released in 2013(or later).

Would be interesting to see the continuation of the story at the end of the game.

Or another chapter. Blood Angels, maybe? ;) (not really.)

Loving it, we need more games like this!

@Metal_Mills: Absolutely lame indeed, but I'm hoping the accomplishments of this title might change their view and allow them to create a proper sequel.

Yeah it's a shame, I wouldn't mind another one. On the flip side Relic does plan on supporting it for a while like dawn of war 2.

This is surprising news to me.

#20 Posted by AngeTheDude (683 posts) -

Nice! I was worried that this game undersold and would be the only Space Marine game ever.

#21 Posted by mazik765 (2315 posts) -

Hell yeah, I wasn't a fan of it during the ork parts of the campaign but I damn loved all that chaos shit.

That's cool.

I have no interest in it but it's cool other IPs can get a better chance. That's always nice to know.
