Squiggle it, just a little bit.

Warhammer Online sent out a newsletter yesterday that got people to thinking WAAAAAAAGGH! again.

I am actually glad the game is not going to come out till 2008, because we have enough great games on our plate, thank you very much!

Most games benefit by a little extra time in the oven anyway. No-one likes a half-baked Squig.

Speaking of Squigs, what IS the appeal of the little fanged meatballs? I can see it's going to be tough to form a varied and balanced group with my friends in Warhammer Online, and have to hope that the sheer volume of toothy bouncy-balls will be enough to carry the day, hehe. So much for my dreams of an ALL-DWARF ARMY!

The game still looks great, and has such a solid design team behind it that we've just added it to our menu on the left, as we look toward the future. Among our circle of friends are a rabid rabble of Warhammer freaks, and we've all been waiting a long time. We can wait another year.

My main concern is EA's track record for cancelling online game projects, including two Ultima Onlines (scrapped before they ever went live), Battletech game (it was in closed beta). In fact, aside from Asheron's Call 2, the main MMOGs to close down have been owned by EA (Motor City Online and Earth & Beyond). So maybe these were crappy games, but it still makes me.... nervous. EA likes to cut and run.

To be fair, the MMOG market is incredibly competitive, so these were probably sound business decisions... but still, what if they cancel my pet game?

At least if the worst happens, we can still cling to the hope of Warhammer 40K Online, being developed by Relic. They are best known for their RTS games Company of Heroes and Dawn of War. The latter proved their ability to capture the sheer beauty of the Warhammer universe. It is the first RTS ever to make me go OOoOOOOOooo and AAAAaaaaaAAAAaaah at the graphics, in addition to having solid gameplay. It feels like the battles that we have in our heads when we play with our tabletop armies.

I digress.... so Warhammer Online is slated for release during the first quarter, 2008.

Meanwhile, everyone will be praying to their gamer-diety of choice to be lucky enough to get into Warhammer Online's beta. Muted sounds of "pleeeeeease pick me!" are heard throughout geekdom.

We are a pathetic lot, us Squig Herders.
