Space Marine

To quote the only piece of Ork dialogue in the game, "Spacemarine!"

Watch Video

Everything was so.... brown. So brown and bland. And why are monitors so horrible in the future?

Nice job as always, felt a bit short though.

I really liked the way you pointed out that we just watched an overstylized msn-like chat conversation.

"The Orks: The truckers of the universe"

I need a bumper sticker of that.

I liked the game but relic kinda dropped the ball with the orks, I mean in the dow series they had allot of character but in space marine they repeat the same lines way too much and are much more generic bad guy then in dow.

i want to see the space marines try bungie jumping with chains that would be great

Immediately following this, two bodies streak across the screen at terminal velocity and smack into the ground.

If they get up to get down, they're close to the edge. Eh? Eh? Come on! ...Nobody? Geez, fine.

Because as we all know...

War... never changes...

Or is always changing...

Or something... I forget.

I still am tickled by the "5-37 days" estimation.

The warp is a fickle beast indeed. Why, once I captained a fine vessel, the Invisible Hand. We set sail for an unexplored star system and arrived before we left!

Oh Warhammer...you so zany.

So was there some gameplay in between, or did that ship crash because the dude landed on it.

The cable guy isn't that precise.

Wel, maybe in the future.

there was a bit where you fight on the ship and bring it down with its own guns, then the ship crashes.

In 40k, absoloutely everything is horrible. Monitor's are no exception.

Rocket-propelled wedgie!? O_o OUCH.

Good thing the ass-loincloth hides that well... I hope.

Yeah, I'd certainly buy one.

also

"That's a knife." Yes Graham, that is a knife.... a very BIG knife!

Actually, not wearing a helmet is NOT canon. Only commanders charged into battle with no headgear to inspire the troops with their bewildering courage ( and then quickly put the helmet on to not get shot in the fucking eye with a 5cm metal slug ).

Matthew Ward disapproves of this video.

No comment about how he left the chainsword and full scale automatic-Rocket propelled grenade launcher back on the ship so he could use a rocket pack to propel him towards the Ork ship with nothing but his mini semi automatic RPG launcher and a combat "knife"?

Because they are old & the IMperium deems creating better tech heresy. Seriously if you make a monitor with awesome resolution you will get burned and your work destroyed.

You missed the best part of the cutscene where Titus shrugs off the wreckage as the title splashes across the screen :(

So the guy's without helmets all suffer facial disfigurements, but that's okay because it means they're not redshirts...

I was really hoping you guys would get around to doing this intro =D It makes me happy

-M

Those weren't orks. They didn't have nearly enough dakka.

guys, seriously, this, that would a been a better finisher

also, indeed, that's a 'knife' though 'short sword' would likely be more accurate X3

I love 40K. I love Space Marine. I love Unskippable.

Also: Unskippableum Dominatus Escapistium!

My favourite line was: "You can't give a more accurate estimate than than?"

Damn. Those guys make other oversize power armor look regular size. Holy shit, how do they even move in those things?

For a brief second I thought Anthony Hopkins was in this game when I saw that old looking sergeant. And then he spoke, and my illusions were shattered.

I think the game might have been a better if they'd gone with the Space Wolves or Dark Angels or something rather than the Bland Marines.

I was really hoping for other M part 3, oh well.

I keep hearing the Orks say SPICE MARINE!

A couple of things. First of all, if humanity no longer understands the technology it uses, then who is building those titan things? Secondly, I didn't think objects the weight and general shape of safes could fly, even if you attached rockets to them. Finally, I don't know who voiced those space marines, but they all make Marcus Fenix sound as if he was voiced by Sir Ian McKellen.

They know how to build it and in some degree (if it's their job) how it works, but they believe in the machine spirit, meaning that they think each machine has a spirit they need to appease before using. Also, they're restricted to some standard or other (that's a part of the lore I'm not too familiar with) and anything that doesn't conform to that standard is heretical. Hope that kind of clears that up.

I could be wrong about some of the details, but I think the general gist of it is right.

Sort of. Until now I thought that the entire Imperium was only using ancient, gradually degrading tech from a long lost generation, and that when it failed they would all be screwed. It made me wonder why in that case we were supposed to be rooting for them and not the Tau, who seemed like a reasonably advanced and decent, non crazy fundamentalist crowd.

Well yeah, that's true. But that's only cause they sometimes lose blueprints or Forge Worlds (manufacturing worlds). And there's some stuff like Terminator armor that they don't know how to make, other than small parts. Either that or it's really expensive to make, I can't remember.

You could root for the Tau, by all means. I don't myself, I like the Imperium. But the Tau are all "greater good" and all that, the only problem is that their greater good involves forcing people to follow them if they don't accept. Nobody is really non-crazy in 40k :P

"So THAT'S where the Necromorphs parked the Ishimura."

God, that had me laughing like an idiot.

The Tau force others to follow them because they believe they are working for the Greater Good, as you say. They believe that they and their client species will benefit in the end (or is it that everyone everywhere is supposed to benefit?) They seem to have relatively noble ideas. Their methods might be very flawed, but are they really as bad as the Imperium philosophy of "believe exactly what we believe, or we'll kill you"? Not to mention the fact that they're willing to form relationships with other species, whereas the Imperium just kill anything that isn't human, or at least the very loose definition of human in a universe where that term applies to this thing.


Also, I'd have though that in the bad situation humans were in, they'd want to form alliances with relatively agreeable races like the Tau or the Eldar, when the alternative is dealing with something like the tyranids.

I dunno, them tyranids seem mighty friendly :P

I'm not a fan of the Tau, but I see your point haha
