There's 2 options:  Real time or turn base.  It's a strange choice to go with both and it rarely ends well but with a bit of luck it's the real time option that's going to be botched.

They really seem to have pulled out all the stops with customization, too.  I just hope they don't limit the teams to something like 4 races only.  The great thing about Blood Bowl was all the different team configurations.

Google has totally wigged out.

Searching on "Blood Bowl" marks every site returned with the "This site may harm your computer." warning. This is true even on my Mac so it's unlikely to be some sort of malware infection.

Edit: okay *every* search is returning that...

I've been getting that message all morning looking up Python info. Google has indeed shat the bed.

I was drinking when I wrote this, so sue me if it goes astray.

Whew.  I'm doing a thorough virus scan right now because of that.  Glad to know it's not just on my end.

That's why I like my Mac. Even though I mostly use it as a Unix development machine it's nice to have something I know is free from the vast amounts of Windows malware out there.

When I first heard about this I could have sworn they said they were just going with turn based. Real time is needed so that they at least sell a decent number of copies.

I'll get it ton PC since I don't have a 360 or ps3.

Their 'alternate' gameplay mode is really weird.  You can play the turn based game on PC or 360 but the alternate gameplay mode (might has well call it dumb casual friendly mode) is different.  The PC version plays like an RTS and the 360 version plays like madden (you control one guy at a time in real time).

Yeah, I'm wondering how much it'll cost on PC. Especially since it's going to be on XBLA, so I can't see that version costing too much.. What are the top-priced games on XBLA? The overpriced Penny-Arcade games? Maybe SFIIHDRemix?

I played the hell out of MUDS and Brutal Sports Football. A good brutal fantasy sports title is a joy. (Never got into Speedball / Speedball 2 though.)

Quoted the motherfucking truth quote. My old Genesis died not too long ago, so I can't play any Mutant League Football any more.

A friend mentioned this, appearently it was due to a goof at google, where the google engine itself was accidently set to flag the ENTIRE internet as malicious links.  Googling for Google itself would give you the same "malicious site" error.

UK people don't fuck - they sit side by side, drinking tea while complaining about everything. 9 months later a baby appears, which gives them more to complain about.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?
