  • While I love to play Warhammer based games, I hate their iOS implementations. All of them charge a base fee that is as high or higher than most games, then they hit you with in-app purchases.
  • Seriously. Dawn of War was classic, and now they're making brainless endless runners. To be fair, the new Warhammer fantasy game looks decent.
  • That is Talisman sir, not warhammer fantasy. Talisman is a great board game that I still own. I have played the beta of Talisman and it is fun. I don't mind the $7 price tag nor the $5 expansion pack price, both are fair. What I dislike is the five different character packs that each cost a dollar. That is uncalled for and feels like double-dipping.
  • I'll be damned! Saw "elves" and "Games Workshop" and just assumed it was Warhammer related. Looks like this Talisman game has been around for awhile. Agreed on the double-dipping. Expansion packs really are the only classy way to pull off in-app purchases. Don't know if you spend a lot of time on PC gaming, but Payday 2 is a great example. They're churning out high-quality DLC every two months or so, interspersed with free updates. They may very well ding me for $5 bi-monthly until the day I die.
  • I'm a huge PC gamer, just not much for FPS type games. Though I can at least play a FPS on computer. I suck horribly at console FPS such as Halo and any of them really.
