Blood Bowl
« on: January 31, 2009, 01:14:05 am »
For all you Games Workshop fanboys out there (I'm certain there's a couple around here, apart from me and Asor), there's an upcoming Blood Bowl computer game adaptation: http://www.bloodbowl-game.com/videos/index.php?video=4.

Short version, for those not in the know: american football meets high fantasy meets excessive violence. Humans vs orcs vs high elves vs forces of Chaos and so on. It's just as much about pounding your opponents into a fine red mush as it is about anything resembling sport.

Looks interesting, so far. Any thoughts?


(also, note to self: get around to try the 1995 computer game adaptation as well)

Worth mentioning is the game Chaos League by the same developer. It's basically Blood Bowl without the license, and a rather good game. I'd have it installed and play the occassional game if it didn't use StarForce copy protection =/
