Dawn of War II trailer (SPOILER!)
« on: 21 Aug 2008, 14:09 »

I didn't see any comments on this Dawn of War II trailer yet, so I thought I'd share.


All I can say is 'NIDS!

'NIDS!

'NIIDS!

'NIIIIIDS!!!

Nids are super cool, although I will most likely be starting an Ork army, because they are bat-shit insane, which is nice. Reminds me of you guys.

Something like Company of Heroes, but there are no vehicles, you get three or four small squads of infantry which you can customise into roles. No bases, no teching, very limited replenishing of squads, very resources, all using the terrain and situational things to your advantage. I'd love to be wrong about this game not existing though.

Hmm... squad-based RTS that concentrates VERY heavily on the individual soldiers, but with no bases or tech trees. That would be difficult to make. I could see that being made where there are specialty-role weapons that don't work well other places. If it is all-infantry though, chances are it would bog down to put the heavy machine gun on everyone and spray everyone with Ye Olde Bullette Hose.

...or are you talking about customization of your troops almost to RPG-level detail?

I don't think going that far is really nescessary. Just giving certain members certain weapons and vague traits would be enough. This is totally off topic though.

Sounds like your ideal RTS would be Fallout: Tactics with a couple of extra squads.
