To be honest, as much as I love the idea of games taken from tabletop and despite how successful some have been, I really don't think it's a good idea.


Leave game making to the professionals and stick to the good ideas.

I'm actually not that concerned.

Privateer Press have been trying to make a Warmachine computer game for about as long as they've been making actual Warmachine, so if the time is now I'm confident it's because they think the time is right.

My only concern is about the narrative of the game. Are we going to be forced to play as a specific faction opposing the others (if this is the case, most likely you'll be Cygnar), or will there be the possibility to play as all (or at least most of) the factions? Will there be a Starcraft-style set of Faction Campaigns linked by a single overarching narrative, or will the plot be dependent upon which faction you play?

The nature of Warmachine being what it is, how many Khador players would be as enthusiastic about the game if it's all about you as Stryker shooing away those Red Northerners? Or how will Cryx players feel if the game requires their favourite faction to be sent packing with their tails between their legs?

Unless it dumps on the Retribution. No-one seems to like them...

To be honest it will probably be Cynar only, with others in multiplayer? Or they are simply showcasing the Cygnar stuff because thats what they have done first?

As for making tabletop game into computer game? The whole skirmishness of the game translates into a computer game alot easier than say 40k, because the very mechanic of the game means you do one thing at a time before moving onto something else to do deaths bidding. Also because of the limited spell list and general awesomeness of warcasters warjacks, the fluff itself lends itself to you (the warcaster) switching his attention between fighting himself and fighting with warjacks.

Leave game making to the professionals and stick to good ideas? Last time i checked the whole IP of PP is a good idea, on top of that they have a kickass game to go with it. Both of which are things which make good ingredients for a computer game seeing as the basic game can be taken down a mechanical notch or two and essentially be the same game but with a totally different spin.

I vote win!
