~What’s your take on straight translations of boardgames into digital formats?

  • durendin

    A smartphone game.

    Thanks, but no-thanks.

    Battlefleet Gothic Armada is out on PC. That’ll do nicely.

    • MrSpacemonkeymojo

      Yeah but my experience with Armada has been – “wow this is amazing here comes my ship to engage in battle…”

      “Display driver has stopped responding and recovered”

      -.-

      • John Bower

        Hmm, not had any issues with it; in fact loving it to bits. But don’t forget until tomorrow it’s still in beta technically. 🙂

      • Haha yep it does crash a lot, but it’s only on version 0,7 so hopefully it will be stable on release.

      • Just to make sure: Your drivers are actually up to date and your Windows is in good order? I see a couple of reports on the Steam forums, but those indicate that users were running outdated drivers. A clean uninstall via the manufacturer’s tool and a full reinstall of the current driver software seems to fix it.

    • ZeeLobby

      Thing is, I can’t play a game of Armada while at work…

  • euansmith

    This might be a chuckle. I’ve enjoyed playing Deathwatch on the PC which started out as a phone game.

    • Sebastien Bazinet

      Deathwatch was cool but I found Warhammer Quest better.

      • euansmith

        I’ll look that up. Thanks.

    • Too bad the developers of Deathwatch went bust over it. I wonder how many of these mobile devs even realize they’re tying their own noose with the licensing costs.

  • Painjunky

    I’m loving BFG Armada on PC.
    This looks… kind of… crap really.

  • Jason Turner

    I wish GW could get out of this Apple exclusive contract they are in. Seriously, Andrroid has a far larger share of the market!

    • carlisimo

      There’s no exclusive deal, and some games have come out on Android. Not the good ones, unfortunately. The problem is that a lot of these games are better suited to PC monitors and larger tablets. Apple is still dominant in the tablet market, ridiculously so in the ~10” tablet market, and the surge in Android tablets when the Nexus 7 was available didn’t translate to that many app purchases. Besides, the most notable 40k iOS games have come from developers that have either never branched out to Android (Rodeo) or tried and quickly gave up on it (Slytherine).

  • Charon

    If this is indeed a faithful recreation of BFG, it is already better then armada for me.

  • ZeeLobby

    Really just depends if it’s faithful to BFG. If it is then I’d play this AND Armada. if not, then just Armada.

  • PlasmaCow

    So this is basically like Bloodbowl, a straight conversion of the miniature game onto computer, whereas Battlefield Gothic Armada is a true video game conversion.

  • Jamie Johnson

    Hey guys, having visited the guys at GC and played the game I can assure you that this is something you’re goign to want to keep your eyes on. No it isn’t Armada and yes it is a tablet/mobile app but it is hands down the best and most faithfull BFG experience I’ve encountered so far.

  • Defenestratus

    again with the f***ing iOS exclusivity. It was ok to do that back in 2010 but these days its just ridiculous.

  • Sebastien Bazinet

    They should release this on PC as well, and not a year later

  • ProjectThanatos

    I’ll think about getting it when they make Tyranids playable.

  • Anti-Gravity

    People still using iOS in 2016?

    JUST LOL.

    • Some 2 billionish of them, yes.

      If all your friends jump off a bridge…

      • Anti-Gravity

        LOL bro, you WISH 1/3 of the planet were using iOS. It doesn’t have nearly that many users.

        Apple users tend to be delusional, so no surprise here!

        • That’s a number I’ve heard bandied about from time to time, but it’s probably the number of devices sold rather than discrete users. Given that most iLemmings I know own two or three various devices and replace about one of them a year, I’d guess the number of discrete users to be something more like 500 million, which seems reasonable, all considered, and I believe still makes iOS the plurality in the market, even if not the majority.

          Your presumptions about my mobile device OS of choice amuse me greatly. Would you like some mustard with that foot, or are you more of a mayo sort?

  • Andrew Thomas

    I’d rather have the Table top game back, thanks.

  • Bayne MacGregor

    I really like the choice to set this during the Shield of Baal campaign rather than the 12th crusade that Armada covers. I hope it comes out on windows phones or to PC. it’ll be a fair while before i can afford to get a new PC to run Armada, and Armada doesn’t have Tyranids yet anyway.

  • carlisimo

    I’m disappointed that so many of the recent mobile/PC and board games use the Tyranids as the “bad guy.” I thought the non-40k predecessors to Deathwatch (Hunters 1 and 2) were more interesting because you were fighting humans with similar weapons as your guys. This won’t be quite as dull because Tyranid ships won’t be as melee-focused as their ground troops, but in the end you’re fighting bugs. Not all of us find that interesting.

  • Gunther Clone C

    Can I play as Tyranids? Otherwise, not interested.

  • Drpx

    Uh-oh, you’ve run out of Emprah Coins! You’ll have to wait an hour or spend $1.99 for more.

  • Slushosaur

    It’s nice that they’ve made a tablet game and it’s completely turn based, sadly I’d rather it had been a game mode for battlefleet Gothic Armada much like how blood bowl was implemented. While the in game ship models are faithful to the tabletop game they’re a little too faithful with limited detail and flat looking. Also why 2 games of the same system at the same time? It takes attention away from each other and just creates confusion in the non GW gaming community it’s. Hope people get what I mean as I was totally slammed on the You Tube comments section for saying the same thing.
