SEGA has inked a deal with Games Workshop in order to start bringing Warhammer games into production. Creative Assembly, the studio responsible for Total War, will be working on the fantasy tabletop IP. 

THQ still has the rights to Warhammer 40,000, at least while it remains in business, so SEGA won't be bringing us any Space Marines or Necrons just yet. Expect all sorts of Elves, Lizardmen, and Skaven though. 

No games have been announced, with SEGA stating there won't be any projects until, "Beyond 2013." 

Pretty sweet deal. Warhammer is a strong property, and the Total War guys do good work, by all accounts. Should be some good stuff heading into the next generation of consoles.

Alien Isolation Ripley DLC not pre-order exclusive, will release later

I think that Alien: Isolation could be great. Pre-order DLC is bad. Especially when it's actually cool sounding content, like a few missions starring the original Alien cast in the upcoming Alien: Isolation. After a...more

Here's what Ripley and friends look and sound like in Alien: Isolation

Someone needs to take Sega aside and politely inform it that pre-order incentives aren't actually supposed to be enticing. Years of custom gun skins and XP boosts have made the whole affair predictable and boring, and then S...more
