I know that Cyanide was showing off an early build of the forthcoming BB video game. Would anyone who saw the game--or even better--played the game, care to comment?

We're getting very little new information from Cyanide or GW over on the Cyanide forums. Their promotion so far has sucked.

Looks good.

The game looked very good and plays pritty much like our beloved game does.

The graphics were well done and I loved it when someone fouls. you see the image of everyone assissting putting the boot in.

They only had Humans and Orcs avalible to play but the game was very easy to pick up.

As a game for your console/pc it looks very good. Should be loads of fun.

100% buying it on release.

However I saw a few things I didn't like and have heard of others, if you are looking for a 1 to 1 conversion of tabletop. Just really minor things that might niggle the purists.

Also I've not played fummbl for over 2 years, but it kinda pang'ed some heart strings and I have a desire to log on again.

Can you all please be more descriptive or specific on what you saw? I don't think you signed a NDA anyway so spill the beans.

Huh?

I'm on the beta-test team and at present we are trying to make sure it IS a 1 to 1 conversion ... so what did you "hear"???

Seriously ... because you honestly should not have heard anything (or for that matter saw anything that wasn't scheduled to be fixed).

Is it being released at the same time world wide? I'm in Canada and my crew here is slobbering all over their screens but I still haven't heard when it is set to be released . . . Anyone know?

Q4 of 2008 was the last I heard....

It wasn't enough to change anyone’s mind - let's put it that way. Those that think it's going to be great will have been wowed by the twinkly graphics and closeness of the rules, and those that were cynical before (/me's hand is up) were even further put off by some of Cyanide's answers to questions (mainly about online play and the eventual addition of rosters).

It's still a wait and see 6 months after release thing.

Yeah I still said I'd 100% buy it.

But four minute turns, no top down view, no grid lines in general play.

Also I have a slight quibble with live action animation that stands still for 3 min 50 seconds just repeating the same movements again and again. But I think they've done it as good as it could be really. If it's a turn based game, it would be better, in my opinion, if they were static to show they are not the active player.



But as a said a cool computer game, just not a tournament game replacer.

The one niggle I noticed is the lack of grid.

When you activate a player you see a highlighted area of squares where your player can move to using his MA & also a larger one if he uses GFI.

But apart from this you couldn't see the squares on the board.

I did hear that there is a toggle for you to see the grid but also that you couldn't leave this on.

Apart from that it's pretty and the crowd & non-activated players go through the same animation every 30 secs.
