More Dawn of War? Relic suggests a 'strong possibility'

With Sega's purchase of Relic Entertainment behind us, now more than ever I'm dying to hear about the future of the company's Warhammer 40,000 titles. Game director Quinn Duffy told Eurogamer that "There's a strong possibilit...

Top ten best THQ games: Remembering a giant photo
Top ten best THQ games: Remembering a giant
by Allistair Pinsof

When assessing a publisher's impact on the industry, we tend to focus on the highs rather than consistency. THQ was anything but consistent, putting out Nintendo DS shovelware, rushed licensed games, and taking part in one of the absolute worst games of all time with Mohawk & Headphone Jack. And yet, THQ occupies a warm place in our hearts. Those three letters represent some of the best times we had with games of the past decade, bringing unknown studios like Volition and Relic into the limelight.

Once we scraped off all the Bratz games and pet sims, we had a hard time determining THQ's top ten best.

$25 gets you the THQ Collection on Steam

After the recent Humble THQ Bundle, I don't know how useful this deal will be, but the sheer absurdity of it all warrants a special mention. As part of the 2012 holiday Steam sale, there's a $24.99 collection which inclu...

Weekend PC download deals: Warhammer 40K, Square Enix

Okay, so the inevitable Steam Summer Sale hasn't started yet but I for one am glad, since my work screwed up my time sheet and I'm not getting paid until Monday. Still, there's still the fantastic Dawn of War franchise and la...

THQ talks Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium's transformation

Although scaling back Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online into something which doesn't require a subscription to play sounds more appealing to me than the alternative, the fact that this process even had to happen is wor...

This Warhammer 40k-turned-Doom army rules

Sundays, in my mind, are best spent sleeping in late and dedicating an afternoon to looking at random things you cannot possibly hope to (and would never truly wish to) afford. Toys are a good candidate, given the absurd aski...

The Steam Holiday Sale is still going strong, and looking at my friends' activity, it's working -- they're getting us to play games we've only barely bothered to touch. A few of the daily deals today are worth pointing out: ...

Space Marine getting Chaos Unleashed DLC in December

PSA: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine co-op mode launched
by Jim Sterling

In a week dominated by Battlefield 3 and Uncharted 3, it seems incredibly silly Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine to release a new mode, but that's the situation we're in. For those of you still playing Relic's Ork-blasting action game, the "Exterminatus" co-op mode is now available to download.

You can grab the content via PlayStation Network and Steam right now. It's due to hit Xbox Live pretty soon.

Exterminatus is a fairly typical survival mode in which up to four players take on waves of enemy creatures. It's pretty fun stuff, and ought to be a good way to get those final level upgrades if you haven't already nabbed them. 

Still, for those of us who stopped playing a while ago, I can't see it as a major incentive to put the disc back in, at least when faced with such an avalanche of alternative titles. At least it's free, and pretty fun, so grab it if you've hung onto a copy of the game.

Exterminatus is declared upon Space Marine today

I only just finished Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine last weekend and Relic is already showering me with more Ork stompah goodness thanks to the free 'Exterminatus' mode. Alas, it won't let you lay waste to an entire planet f...
