For The Emperor!

This post will be out of left field, mostly because I haven't posted anything in what seems like months. But I wanted to say that I am FREAKING EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SPACE HULK GAME!

I figured using caps would drive my point home.

I have no idea if the game is going to be good, but the fact that a Space Hulk game is almost here is, to me, pretty awesome. For those not in the know, Space Hulk was a tabletop board game based on the Warhammer 40k universe. Space Hulk is actually a term for a massive derelict ship that, and those ships tend to become the habitat for an alien race known as Genestealers.

The board game consisted of a set of floor tiles which could be arranged in multiple ways to give subsequent playthroughs a different feel. Think of the random generated dungeons from Diablo. One player would then take control of the Genestealers while the rest of the players controlled a squad of Terminator Space Marines.

I love the Warhammer universe and I also have real fond memories of playing with a group of friends until the wee hours of the morning back in high school. So yes, I am looking forward to Space Hulk. I just hope it doesn't suck.
