Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Soulstorm released!
« on: March 05, 2008, 03:32:10 pm »
Yup, it's finally out, the final expansion to Relic's popular Dawn of War RTS. Get it while it's hot.

I'll probably buy it off Steam later today (considering it isn't on Steam yet for some reason...).


I say NO! to all limits.
Unfortunately, I don't think we're far enough into the Civ stage to have deveoped into the 'Infinite-ghz processing' research tree yet...

very fun. the sisters of battle are very fun to play, and dark eldar will make any DOW fan feel differently about the eldar race in general. air units are pretty cool, but i wish they had given a little more than 1 air unit for each faction. worth the money for sure though!

23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youth.

Was there something wrong with the old Eldar?

The Warp Spiders weren't done justice, the Swooping Hawk and Striking Scorpion aspect warriors are conspicuously absent, as are Wraithguard and the Harlequins were a bit of a lame sidenote rather than a genuinely useful part of the army. But somehow I don't think thats what Swamp is referring to.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

No i agree on that. And i do not think that Swamp was referring that ether. I like the Eldar in the game even if they lack a few units i would have liked to see.

Whoah... You guys should see the RelicNews forums... It's a mess with all the new members ranting about how much they hate Soulstorm for various reasons...

Oh, sorry for being vague. I was referring to the wispy/feminine look and feel the orginal Eldar had.

Well Eldar are feminine. Maybe even more so then Sisters of battle. And that is saying a lot >_>

But yeah Dark Eldar have always felts more masculine. Never like them however. I played them a bit in the demo and they where cool there but not grate. Sill not fan of them. I do like Dark Elfs in Warhammer Fantasy a lot better. Oddly enough there more feminine to.

Maybe i just like Feminine stuff?

That's one of the reasons I prefer IG over Eldar; Eldar units are just so... Fragile.

well hey, too each his own. i have no problem playing the sisters of battle, their being females does not bother me, but playing the eldar who have many male character that act like females that bothers me. I think its cause I like to rp with myself in my head as i play, so if im playing the game as a feminine guy, its just not that fun.
