Belief no, latent/hidden/subconscious psyker power that almost all living being have in varying amounts can affect stuff. Orks being a perfect example.
Semi-related, but what's the deal with those "living saints"?
Some are killed and then supposedly resurrected by the power of the Emperor - such as Saint Sabbat and Saint Celestine.
You copied that of the Lexicanum
To the former, it's all opinion, not fact anyway, and it wouldn't have even been an issue except for how loud and long the protest for change was held up as a tentpole; couple that with OMG THE BOLTGUN WHAT HAVE THEY DONE THIS ENTIRE GAME IS THE END OF WARHAMMER; (really? the whole game and franchise is ruined because the devs made the BP act like a auto-stubber?) it's exacerbated by the fact the earlier iteration of the game was actually more genre accurate: it was darker, featured more races, and actually featured the exterminatus mechanics in sp mode, which is hell of a lot more fluff accurate than captain bad hair goes off on his own and is blue smurf immune to all Chows influence. If you look at Retribution and SM, the stories are frankly a little too similar for a game four years in development.
And yeah, I find it funny that someone who bandwagons a race make-over gets fetishist butthurt at a change to one weapon amongst the vast and unyielding plethora of weapons available to it a gameplay parameter, especially when said person is saying the all gameplay changes to 6e are just lurvely without having actually being able test on-hand whether true or not, and completely ignoring the fact that Space Marine weapons aren't even remotely TT or fluff accurate to begin with as it is, except for the chainsword and thunder hammer/maul.
Orks pretty much refute that. Their actions should make Khorne the most powerful by far; he isn't, and their stuff works cause they believe it does.
Did I ever say that the entire Original Space Marine was ruined? No, I had a bone to pick with how they used the Bolt Pistol. That's it, that was the only gameplay video of it released, I've not seen anymore of it, neither have you.
The Game doesn't need to have a load of races to be 40k, I'm not sure why you think it does. If there's enough variety within a single race why add more?
Again, Space Marine was made to bring 40k into the public eye, maybe the casual Console gamer has heard of it? What does he know? He sees Space Marine, plays the demo. It's about this. Space Marines defending the Imperium from Aliens and their evil brothers. The ending was, to some people, Grimdark enough. The walls of Manufactorum Ajakis didn't need to be coated with the tears of Orphans to be all fluffy. At the end, the main character is Taken away by what the player knows to be the Supreme authority, the FBI/CIA/MI5/whatever, of the Imperium to be interrogated and experimented on, all on the squealing of a Squadmate. That was enough for most people, and it left me satisfied.
It's not bandwagoning to like something. I like the Newcrons, the old ones bored me to tears. In reality, very little has changed, people can still have their undying legions of Silent Death Machines if they want. That's possible if they want.
I'm not saying that all of the changes in 6e are lurvely. If you'd care to check;
Again, you're not reading. I said I was satisfied that the weapons in Space Marine were as close to accurate as they could get while still providing a decent challenge. Titus felt weighty to play, you used a Bolter and gouts of blood burst from Orks, but still they charged on. If we're going to be all fluffy accurate, each Ork would die to one, maybe two Bolt Rounds and Titus would move one hell of a lot quicker, due to the Black Carapace. But that's not the games intended purpose, it's to get into combat and kick alien Ass.
Pouring through the 6e book with my friend who has been playing since he was 12.
He is not amused with it.
Well he is amused with pistols rending in close combat, and the statline for the Graviton Beamer.
Get in there techpriests, you have one shot at S10 rending in closecombat.
He's calling 6e an elfdar codex in disguise at this point.
We'll all be on edge for this summer. At least vehicles are all fearless now. Derp derp.
A thought just occurred to me, could the emperor be brought back to life if the orks believed he was alive?
Are you talking about that Video i posted? The Graphics for that version would of been nicer than what we got, overall it looked more Grimdark.
That are they wear the Chapters colours with pride.
i also went and bought some more space marines like a tactical squad and another terminator box because i read somewhere that you need a hero if you want to play this game and i saw a picture of some sort of guy with a skull helmet unlike the rest of the marines and im working on making that hero in terminator armor because i like the way it looks
If you are planning on playing the game though you might want to buy yourself Assault on Black reach set as it has a small rule book and comes with quite a few things (Although you can't change their poses like you can with the other boxes) and you'll need to get yourself a Space Marine Codex.
