Well, we’ve had one “popular board game turned into video game” update for today. Why not another? In this case, it’s that Space Hulk: Ascension will soon be making its way to your PS4s (though, currently, I only have a PS2. … Don’t Mock Me!). This is because HR Games and Funbox Media are teaming up to make it so.
The waiting is over (since we told you last week). You can now get your copy of Space Hulk for your PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Funbox Media along with HR Games are the ones making it happen (of course, with Games Workshop as well). You can order them from the Funbox Media website.
Now, you know we primarily deal with tabletop games here on TGN. But we also deal with video-games-turned-board-games and board-games-turned-video-games. The second one is the case here. Funbox Media will be bringing Games Workshop’s classic sci-fi board game Space Hulk to the PS3 later this month.
Games Workshop apparently scrounged up some more copies of Space Hulk and are shipping them to the US. They could show up just about any time.
From the announcement:
Many of you have contacted us to say how frustrated you were that our US and Canadian webstores sold out so quickly. We listened, and we have good news!
We’ve managed to get our hands on a small number of copies, and we’ve decided to ship them to our warehouse in Memphis and make them available again for those of you who missed out.
Battle Foam helps keep your Space Hulk set organized and protected with their new transport bag designed specifically for it.
From the website:
This load out option comes fully loaded with pre-designed foam trays that fit game pieces from the Space Hulk 2014 board game.
Games Workshop supported Space Hulk, at least a little bit, with the release of their mission files. But are these extras worth it?
TGN’s Enrico Nardini grabbed the Dark Angels book and is here to give you his thoughts.
We keep the pressure up with another TGN review. This time it’s the Dark Angels: Bringer of Sorrow iBook.
TGN’s family is expanding. We’ve brought on Enrico Nardini, from Play Unplugged, to join us here with editorials and game reviews. Here’s his first article. It deals with the new Space Hulk release from Games Workshop.
So take a look, enjoy the read, and take it away, Enrico!
