Warmachine: Tactics

Rather than another post on some MechWarrior: Online Builds (Victor Builds incoming BTW), I figured it might be better to advertise a game I'm quite very interested in, Warmachine: Tactics.

Warmachine: Tactics is a video game by Privateer Press and WhiteMoon Dreams, based on the awesome tabletop game, Warmachine. Now I don't know if you've ever heard of Warmachine or of Privateer Press; but you do or should know about Games Workshop.

As far as I'm concerned, the biggest and number 1 competitor of Games Workshop is Privateer Press. They are the only well known company who can stand toe to toe with Games Workshop, and they're only a 10 year old company!

Anyway, Privateer Press, hence Warmachine has always had very interesting models and story. The world contains a mixture of Magic and Technology/Science!! Two things that can rarely be part of the same world!!

Right onto the main important bits.

The video game Warmachine: Tactics is a community funded video game (which is proving to be very popular with game developers). It is a turn-based strategy game for PC and Mac, where you control 1 of 2 Factions (1 of 4 now that the first Stretch Goal has been met). 

A lot of people will draw similarities between this game and XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Hell they do look similar, yet vastly different!

Anyway check it out and maybe pledge! As of this post, they've already succeeded their goal and have now reached $757,181. There's already been many other stretch goals that have been met! Once they reach $1,010,000 another single player mission pack is unlocked! What?! I love single player modes sometimes! :P
