>GW isn't giving the 40k ip to a single company anymore.

No shit, but I'm talking about the rights to one particular game held by a particular studio. Relic owned the rights to the Space Marine game and the cancelled MMO turned something else game. Those rights if held by relic now belong to Sega, if those rights reverted back to GW there would have been some announcement from a real source that the IP had been shifted. Every other company that has a GW IP in the works has said something about it and not relied on some shitty blog with an "inside source that's totes reliable guize" to break the news.

We already know that creative has a Warhammer game license, Full Control has a great looking Space Hulk game coming at hte end of the year, Nomad games is doing Talisman, Zittika is doing something with Titans, and Rodeo is doing Warhammer Quest. How do we know this? Because every company that got a license deal came running out talking about it excitedly.

"Inquisitor Commander Shepard! Step away from the Necron!"


"I'll not have you firing on a member of my crew, Officer Ann!"
"But Inquisit-"
"I said no, and that's an order!" Camera zooms in on Inquisitor Commander Shepard's chiseled face, armored in experimental Tau power armor with preorder bonus Gray Knight Pauldrons that provide a 50% damage bonus against warp fire attacks, "Any one that gets on my ship, is part of my crew- and it doesn't matter who they are, if they're human or xeno, mutant or heretic, living or dead, as long as they're with me, saving the galaxy, then I'll die for them!"
"But, Inquisit-"
"You'll have to shoot me first Ann," A beat, panning over the strangely silent other members of the crew shuffling back and forth in canned animations staring with dead eyes, then back to Shepard, "I'd do the same for anyone else."
"But...The Necrons scoured my planet clean of all organic life! They killed every last man, woman, and child left on that world!" Tears arise in Ann's eyes, "I saw my parents flayed by their weapons in front of my very eyes before I got to the drop ships! You can't just ask me to forget that!"
"That is exactly what I'm asking you to do Ann!"
She stares for a moment, before dropping her gun in defeat, "Okay."
"Besides, they didn't mean that. They were puppets of the Enslavers. Isn't that right, Mulketh the Unrepentant?"
"Right, there, see? He means well."
Officer Ann wipes away a tear, "I'm, I'm sorry Inquisitor for doubting you...Is there anything else you need?"
Inquisitor Shepard stares at her some more, the problem resolved.
"I should be going."

Theoretically, it could be good; Mass Effect 3's combat system was decent, but clunky [and over satured, as I hated being level 50 and having all that cluttered up shit in my skill system. Something akin to ME1 and DA: O's skill system would be preferable.], though the story was utterly subpar.

This is all assuming they still have ME1 in their veins, and that may not be the case.

I would get it purely to be disappointed, since it won't be like Athkatla only on planets. Seriously, being able to walk around the cities in the Imperium would be amazing, purely because the aesthetic would at least be decent.

I'd still love it to be more like Athkatla, only planet-sized. Full of sidequests, emergent or not, full of interesting characters and back-alley problems, the Inquisition and more would be grand.

This or a Rogue Trader game would be grand, even if Bioware is awful at story and dialogues.

"The Space Marine armor has a very ancient, greek-ish, roman-y style to it, but it's also very bulky and smooth and not very detailed. So for this modern-day reimagining we slimmed down the suit and gave it a more form-fitting look, replacing the tacky pauldrons with simpler plates. The classic Boltgun is still there, albeit in a more streamlined form complete with ironsights and laser targeter, and we took a page out of Dead Space and replaced the backpack with a giant healthbar."

Companies seem to have styles as to how they make a game.
Bioware likes to include 6 or so optional romance sidestories, and one required by the plot, when the ideal 40k game has none.

Plus while mechanically ME3 was good, it's story was bretty bad. Ever hear the outcry against the ghostchild and the three varieties of left field that is the ending?
Also also, a DLC was released for people who reasonably object to I don't even know why I'm spoilering being forced to destroy the Mass Relay system (and the civilization built on it) in order to save the universe... Said DLC features a new ending wherein you tell the starchild to screw himself,die, and the reapers win. the NEXT galactic cycle fifty thousand years later follows the catalyst plan and kills them.
They made people pay money and waste however many hours of their life spent beating the game to view the super secret screw you.

Closest I could find offhand:

"Unlike most other
Chapters, the Salamanders do not reside in their fortified
home base, which is little more than a huge spaceport with
fleet facilities stationed high overhead. When not engaged on
operations or training for them, the Salamanders live amongst
their people, and each is the headman of a smaller community
of families. The people of Nocturne therefore grow up in the
company of god-like warriors, to whom they themselves are
related, and they aspire above all else to join their ranks and
fight for the Emperor. As every Salamander practises the trade
of the smith, so many take young apprentices into their service,
the best of these being judged worthy to become aspirants
and undertake the trials to join the Chapter as neophytes.
The trials are like those fought between the Emperor and the
Primarch, though no man alive could perform such mighty
deeds as were seen in that epic undertaking. Nonetheless, the
Salamanders are uniquely blessed by their close ties to their
kith and kin, and the people uniquely honoured in turn."

You know, I hold a flicker of hope that Bioware could redeem themselves with this, but to do so would require a massive shift in how they have previously presented their previous games.

Of course, the though makes me laugh, but imagine with me /tg/.
Bioware goes all out on this, as close to the horrific, grimdark nature of the 40k universe as possible. Where people being ruthlessly executed in the streets for crimes against the Imperium is common in a shithole hive, Arbites exactly the same as the new Judge Dredd movie. Towering spires covered with horrific artworks detailing the continuous martyrdom and sacrifice of men to stay alive.

The starting mission would focus around exposition. Primarily, that you start off as a possible Inquisitorial henchman. You wander through the run down lower hive levels, watching as they are filled with grim and poverty, etc. One of the first tests would be to have your character, without prior knowledge, to stand 'trial' over a street execution of a group of criminals. The obvious 'right' choice would be to let them go. If you do so, your character is charged with adding and assisting known criminals and being summarily executed by the Arbites. The key point is to emphasis that this is the world you live in, and it is what is necessary to survive.

Once your starting character has been executed, it shifts to a new character who has just arrived on the scene. An actual henchman, you preside over the trial, before one of the members of the guilty attacks one of the Arbites, through the use of possible psychic powers. Your goal now is to execute the child before it can cause massive damage to the area. If you try to reason with her, this only causes the child to continue mutating, eventually killing your character. You have to execute her, and are told you did a good job for it.

Once this section is finished, you have to report to your Inquisitor and are shipped off planet. You never return.

Just imagine this shit /tg/.

But the bad press in ME3 was not in the major gaming outlets and only criticized the ending, rather than the entire rest of the game that happened to be better than Mass Effect 2. Even then, the ending was polarizing, not universally hated; some people praised it as poetic and beautifully bleak, while others condemned it as horrible.

So basically, the question is: what bad press from ME3?

And before you cite the Consumerist poll: that's just one publication, doing an open Internet poll. EA isn't REALLY going to take that seriously. What they WILL take seriously is the fact that their stock prices haven't recovered in any meaningful capacity since the 2008 crash, but there's no reason for them to blame their Bioware division for any of that. Yet.

You guys realize this is bullshit right? I mean, the only think THQ had to do with Space Marine is that they published it. If anything Relic would be the one that owns the IP, and they still exist. Anyway, Games Workshop just licensed the IP to Relic they never outright sold it to them.

Plus, the only thing Bioware ever makes no a days is gender and sexually progressive space dating sims anyway. So they'd never have any interest in an IP that is seen by many of the embodiment of a male power fantasy.

It wasn't bleak, it was incoherent and disjointed. Nothing in it related to the previous 100 hours of play, apart from the stuff that directly contradicted established themes (eg - it's established in-game that this cycle has done better than previous cycles due to diversity - all the differing races coming together, rather than one race being supreme like in Javik's time - and also that peace between AIs and organics is achievable, then the "best" ending has you force conformity on the galaxy and you are told that AIs will always destroy their organic creators).

ME1 is still very much the best game in the series. ME2's plot meanders and is generally pointless and kind of stupid, but the party member's sideplots are really really good and mostly make up for it...though I miss the Mako.

How do you think I feel? I was the one thinking about it in the first place?

I think a good part to add into that bit about were the first PC is killed would be to ape the traditional Mass Effect dialog wheel, specifically the 'Paragon/Neutral/Renegade' parts, by giving the PC only three responses, that basically state 'Release them (nicely)/Release them/Release them (angrily)'. To tie it into the plot, give the PC's an excuse to say that they are a henchman to the overall Inquisitor. And watch as the Arbites don't give a fuck and execute them anyway.

The conversation system for the actual PC should give many more options than the Mass Effect wheel, and not obviously highlight the GOOD/NEUTRAL/BAD paths.

But Bioware would never do that, the faggots.

From this point, you have to travel around the insides of the ship, en route to the central hub of the game, to go and meet your boss. This is the point at which you see the massive difference within Imperial society.
You, as an Inquisitorial henchman, are treated to the best shit the ship can offer, living the life up in fucking harmonious joy with what ever the fuck you want, including a bunch of totally bitching weaponry. Of course, this is the point at which you throw up some more crazy shit for the PC to fight.

Firstly, you are invited to go hunting with the ship's captain throughout the lower decks, hunting down mutants and such. You can refuse him, but that means you are going to be in fucking shit with the Captain and loose most of your shit. If you agree, you go massacre mutants. Infinity Ward gets upset you just out did their airport scene.
Secondly, the Captain comes to you with a possible rebellion brewing beneath the ship, among the mutant slaves. Of course, he mentions that it maybe be the source of some kind of chaos cult, so you have to investigate it.

At this point, you are introduced to a new hub, the lower decks, and must either investigate the area for possible chaotic corruption, or simply massacre all the mutants insight.
If you follow the first route, you discover a chaos cult planing to overthrow the captain, and watch as the sacrifice a screaming virgin boy on an alter, before you burst in and burn them down.
If you follow the second route, a rebellion brews, and erupts in different parts of the ship, resulting in you shifting around fighting numerous bands of poorly armed men, women and children.

By the time you reach the main game hub and get into the game proper, the actual player should either be A) Fucking pumped for this shit or B) Crying about all the mean things you did on Tumblr/BSN

He's obviously a little onset by this notion because it goes against the established philosophies of the Imperium at large, which believes humanity is divine and that the alien, the mutant, and the Psyker are blights that must be purged to protect the sanctity of the whole.

Duke Nukem Forever. Aliens: Colonial Marines, in which they kept lieing to SEGA to give them more money and use it on Borderlands 2 instead while not even bothering to do the actual game themselves(they outsorced to some shitty dev studio and didn't even bother to supervise until the very last minute, when they found out the game was a broken mess). They would have kept their little scam going but SEGA was on the verge of slapping down a lawsuit on them.

The best part? SEGA is undergoing financial difficulties and the retunr they should be getting for technically funding Borderlands 2 would have been a huge relief for them.

As far as sueing goes, a lot of SEGA's employees were up at arms about this scam and really wished for a lawsuit, but their lawyer said that depending on how the contract between SEGA and Gearbox was worded they can't do a thing about it. That was quite a while ago... no word since then.

In the event that it IS true, let's focus on what we know, rather than tired memes: Bioware is not flat-out retarded. Mass Effect and Dragon Age have their own setting and tone, very different to what 40k has. No-one and I do mean NO-ONE who so much as GLANCES at 40k's lore in even a CURSORY manner, can make the mistake of thinking this is a happy place, or one where the few major victories for one side or another, are won without incredible losses. Bioware has always kept its lore internally consistent, at the very least. Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 3 were indeed mis-steps (hell, ME3's ending is what made me boycott them), but those games are hardly the be-all and end-all, of even Bioware's RECENT portfolio.

We know it's the SPACE MARINE ip; not 40k in general. This is very limiting, in terms of making a traditional RPG, the likes of which Bioware are known for. It's more likely to be an action-heavy game, with little character progression, or complex the plot-lines that are characteristic of Bioware RPGs. The rumour is that it will feature the Salamanders chapter. We know that, IN CANON, the Space Marines (Ultramarines chapter) have formed temporary alliances with the Tau before. We also know that the Salamanders are one of the more bro-tier chapters. SO FAR, what we've heard does NOT contradict canon, nor does it smack of mutilating the fluff.

Everyone calm down. Bioware has made mis-steps, it is true, but by and large, they're still a solid, if not legendary, developer. Please wait until we all have more information, before you go into full sperglord mode.

So from this point, you've just arrived to the brand spanking new game hub, and what is going to be the overall game hub for the entire game. The Captain needs new crew men to replace the ones lost/hiring priests to purify the demonic taint. If he dicked you over, you can redick him by calling for his ship to be impounded.

Then you travel through a massive space platform above a hive planet, which consists of a massive black ball covered in red points for the forges. You arrive at the established parade ground (yes, on a space station), and are introduced to the main quest of the game. Thousands of men and tanks in order, and an entire titan legion have been assembled to go to war with some random alien race, presumably the Tyranids. However, following all this shit, you are shuffled away into a back room of bleak metal, and are shown a grain screen.

This is your actual introduction to the Inquisitor. It consists of the Inquisitorial symbol on the screen, and you are told your mission. Necrons.

The news was not broken at the parade, but an entire planet has been turned to ash. You have to gather a set of warriors to find out why they are here and how you can stop them.
The briefing ends with the Inquisitor claiming that this is 'your first assignment' and the first of many to come.Now you go about and do the regular things on the station, but this time you find your first two soldiers.

A Kreig major who is the easiest to acquire. To get him, you simply requisition him from the main army, and he, and his company are attached to your retinue, including a few tanks and a sentinel scouting squad.

The second is a tech priest, who you acquire by as siting him in various tests surround his servitors, and the apparent theft of one of them. Ends up with you busting into an underground battle arena. You can run in guns blazing, but the simplest opinion is this. Walk in, show ID, leave with servitor, laugh at people shitting pants

I don't see how you couldn't have xenos in the game as team members.

The overall aim of this game is to not only acquire a set of specialists for your personal retinue, but to gather enough forces to actually have a military to combat the Necrons on the ground in the final battle.

Anyway, you are provided a freight for transporting your soldiers, and away you go.
Three sections of the sector have been highlighted, and two points on either end show the Tyranids attacking and the Necron advancing. The three sections are split like this. The Tau DMZ, the Eldar deep space pirate station that the Inquisitor knows about, and a planet famed for occasionally hosting the usual Ork Waaagh.

Of note is the bonus quests provided by the Inquisitor. He will occasionally highlight area's of new Xenos to exploit/trade with, Genestealer cults and Necron forces. By completing these, you can requisition more forces of the Tyranid from to fight the Necrons.

You can choose which areas to go first but I'll start with the most fun first.

The Ork planet.

Originally a Agriworld, it has been reduced to a place of endless battles and war, as the continually growing Ork presence is causing problems for the new settlers. On the bright side, its producing a shit ton of good soldiers for the Imperium.

This new hub is centered around a recently constructed tab block. This entire section, for the first half, is meant to represent the Imperium's non-despotic rule. THe people, despite having to fight savage Orks, are tough and resourceful, while the local government is willing to go easy on the forming hive. Of course, your presence is both welcomed and despised.

Anyway, its filled with the usual shit, find this, stab that, torture this and that. It reaches a turning point when the local governor's son is accused of heresy. Either shoot him for either being a heretic/wasting your time or investigate him. Eventually discovering that the son was beginning to become involved in an underground cult, and execute him.

At this point, the governor flips his shit at you, and sends the PDF at you. You tell them to check themselves before they wreck themselves, and a civil war has started. Of course, at this point, the Orks attack. Wat do?
1. Rally the colony to wipe out the Orks
2. Kill the governor and use the remaining men to fight the Orks
3. Talk to the head Ork and negotiate a 'deal'.

First one ends in the planet stabilizing and you gaining your first base of operations.
Second one ends in the colony going to shit and needing to be rebuilt, but you get a kickass few squads of Xeno hunters
Third, the Ork is a freebooter who though the entire thing would be interesting. At the mention of your inquisitors name, he offers a deal. Meet him at the Eldar pirate base, and negotiate details there (You will find him their anyway, the option just determines his persuasion levels and the amount of boyz he has)

From here, logically, the next point of call.

The Eldar pirate base.

This is basically the entire section of Omega all over again from Mass Effect. THe entire place is, externally beautiful, but internally filled with numerous alien races and enemies. Now the first thing to do is meet with the noble house that rules the station and grease them up to stay and explore them.

You get another two companions here.
First, the Warboss from the previous Ork world, who is interested in what you can offer, along with his dim but loyal mekboy. Depending on what you did before, he is either easier or harder to get. The more of his boys you killed, the easier it is to impress and hire him. Both of these lads will add a brand new purple ship to your fleet (which is surprisingly normal, despite the paint job, to 'Sneak up on glitz' apparently)

Final base before the fun times.

The Tau DMZ

It really isn't a DMZ, but its called that because calling it the border where everybody has a fuck ton of weapons pointing at each other.

Anyway, you land on the Tau planet, and your general mission is split into two parts. Firstly, convince the Tau to add you in your mission, including the local Vespid/Kroot forces. And secondly, find out why you never see any humans more than twice.

First one is easier to do, and links into the second one. The Tau forces must be presented with evidence of the Necron's rise. If you've done the Eldar Farseer, she confirms it. Despite this, they tell you to kindly fuck off and fight your own god damn war. Of course, this is where the second to last companion comes in. An older Tau warrior commander is prepared to go mercenary for certain reasons, but needs you to eliminate certain machines around the settlement to do so. Do that, and you get a few teams of fire warriors, many squads of battle suits, an awesome military commander and a brand spanking new Tau ship for your fleet.

The second companion is the Kroot Shaper and his Vespid buddies. They want out to, since many members have been disappearing without a trace. You eventually trace them down and discover a terrifying reeducation camp that is brainwashing various aliens. Get them out, along with the humans, and you now have both the Kroot warriors and Vespids on your team.

The second half of this is to provoke an uprising within the settlement. Or you could sell the rebels out and get the Tau in your debt, your choice.

Personally I think you should start as the inquisitors explicator and that there should be a jump in time after the tutorial ends(at the end of the tutorial you become newly minted inquisitor) of about 5 years in the game. When the game really starts you're protagonist is investigating the appearance of traitor legionnaires on planet cockermurderkill in system cocksforthecocksgod and you find clues that point both back to the tutorial(where, ofc the real enemy isn't presented) and forwards; at the end of that mission your protagonist concludes that he/she will need help and contacts the inquisitor who trained him/her.
