(April fools) Hell, it's about time...




...to release Swords & Soldiers' 3rd faction!From beyond the galactic nebulae comes the Space Marine Galaxial Confederation Force to oppose the brutish Vikings and nefarious Aztecs. They are armed to the teeth with turbosteel plating and have technology far superior to any other faction on the planet! High up in orbit around the planet the Space Marines have watched the various undertakings and insignificant struggles of the pathetic Vikings and Aztecs.

Determined to rid the planet of this ridiculous barbequeing and vegetable-growing, the ever-steadfast Space Marines decided to engage their enemies in an all-out planetary offensive. Charge up your Ion Cannons, put on your power armor and load your machineguns, for the Space Marines have landed! To find out more about the space conquering, turbosteel plated, chaingun wielding Space Marines check out the factions page! Or check out some of the new screens at the media page!

it would be SO AWESOME IF U HAD A SPACE MARINE AS A MISCELLENIOUS UNLOCKABLE IN SKIRMISHES!!

I knew from the beginning it was a joke (nice new bullet holes in the sign btw)but they would be a cool secret unlockable,or faction for a sequel.

Anyway,I WANT THE REAL ONE NOW!!!

I'm surprised no one caught the reference in the name
"Hell, it's about time..." were the words spoken in the first Starcraft II teaser.

Just so happened to be a marine.

Really looking forward to this game, looks very promising

Space marines are so lame and would not fit in with the style of this game at all. I'm glad it is just an April fools prank. I don't think I would buy the game if it was not.

Mario64a said...

DSi rocks, I'm sending this message trough the DSi browser. It's fast, fun and easy, 2 bad U can't c youtube movies and no using web MSN/Yahoo :-( Maybe they need 2 update it 2 do that.

Just a little time 2 play Swords & Soldiers.

NERD ALERT!

Shouting 'nerd alert' on a gaming blog - now *that's* what I call funny! :D

(especially if it's in relation to a game that is full of references to games and tv :-P )
