Warhammer helps sexify your Xbox avatar

We know you all love that spiffy avatar gear, and THQ's got your back this time out with an assortment of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine apparel and pets for your Xbox Live avatar. Seriously, get excited. Do it. For 80 points...

Not another Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine preview!
by Jim Sterling

Both the single-player and multiplayer of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine has been previewed multiple times. We're less than a month away from release and THQ wants another! I've been playing a preview build of the game this past week, and even though I'm really into it ... I don't know what else to say. 

At this rate, the final review is simply going to be, "Guh? Buh!" Admittedly, some will say such a review is an improvement to my usual writing style. 

With so much already said, and such little time before the review, this article exists in limbo -- a nothing-world where I'm duty-bound to write about the game, but I have nothing I can say at this time. I think it's time for a quick and lazy bulleted list!

Holy crap, Warhammer 40K: Space Marine customization!

This video is about a month old but nobody seemed to spot it until it popped up on NeoGAF earlier today. That's a shame because it's pretty damn great. The video takes us through the customization process in Warhammer 40,000...

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine gets dramatic trailer

There's plenty of drama and muscular male angst in this new cinematic trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. This will be a game about huge men, sweating and grunting at each other for hours. Can't wait! The game's out September 6 and I'm pretty pumped, as both a fan of the 40K universe and of excessive violence. It ought to be pretty dang good.

Preview: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine multiplayer
by Conrad Zimmerman

Last week, I was a press event in Santa Monica to check out Relic Entertainment's new third-person shooter, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. I have been a huge fan of the lore of the Warhammer 40,000 setting and even spent a few years painting figurines from the game as a hobby. But while I love the trappings, the miniatures game was always a bit convoluted for my tastes, so I've been looking forward the idea of having direct control over a Space Marine for a long time.

They are exactly what they look like: Hulking masses of carnage. We were to pit them head-to-head, the forces of the Emperor's Imperium against their brothers corrupted by the forces of Chaos. And the result was brutal.

Review: Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team
by Jim Sterling

THQ is starting a habit of paving the way for retail releases with digital spin-offs. We had Red Faction: Battlegrounds release on XBLA ahead of Red Faction: Armageddon, and now Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team has appeared to promote Space Marine's release later this year.

Such titles run the risk of being disposable, cheap cash-ins that exist as little more than interactive advertisements. In fact, most of them end up as exactly that. Whether or not Kill Team falls into that category depends on your perspective.

E3: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine hands on

My interest in Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is well known. I love me some Games Workshop silliness, and I love big, meaty action games. A merger of the two can only be a good thing, right?

It's certainly looking good!

E3: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine trailer gets Chaotic

A sexy new E3 trailer for THQ has made its way to the Internet, and it shows off the forces of Chaos in motion for the first time. As usual, you can see loads of blood and grunting manliness in the above video.  THQ is ...
