no, RTSs belong on PC

 #2 - Posted by: las_shot_in_the_eye (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 12:29
yuh, but if they change it around a little it could be ok

 #3 - Posted by: Deutsch_Guard (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 13:00
I think I would, but i'd have to be something pretty special. Obviously it wouldn't be another RTS....

 #4 - Double post.... - Posted by: Deutsch_Guard (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 13:01
I mean .....it'd have to be....

 #5 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 13:26
I said on a portable console. I mean, think about it. They made sqaud command on psp, and it was a really fun game.

 #6 - Posted by: sanjit (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 13:34
I would say no, but I would buy DOW if it came out on the PSP, even if the controls blew.

 #7 - Posted by: blammord (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 13:58
It says a "DOW GAME". DoW is RTS is it not? RTS on anything else then PC is shite.

 #8 - i donno - Posted by: cHaOsRuLeZ (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 14:17
just hopefully not another FPS:p and it dosent HAVE to be an RTS........if it can be anything else.......:borg::borg:

 #9 - Posted by: Kouen (Staff) on 02-21-2008 at 17:22
Consoles aren't condusive to RTS, sadly. Like, you ever tried executing micro on a PS2? Jesus. If only AvP: Extinction had been released on PC. The DS, though. Well. I could dig an RTS on [i]that[/i]. :p

 #10 - #9 - Posted by: chosen40k (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 18:14
Kouen, no RTS games for the DS, only Turn Based Strategy. Jeez, an RTS would be too much! Yeah, AVP:E with a Skirmish mode would have been awesome.

 #11 - Posted by: katana50 (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 19:21
I would buy it only if the game was like Gears of War and The Outfit. It would be fun to do all the gears of war motions and hiding with space marines or other races. And the outfit because its a RTS the was made in 3rd Person;)

 #12 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 20:33
It totally depends on the game.

 #13 - good and bad - Posted by: sage62 (Member) on 02-21-2008 at 20:38
well, there would be pros and cons to such a thing, on the bad side, RTS on consoles generally don't do as well, but I have played two which actually worked out well, AVP: Extinction and battle for middle earth 2. They were both pretty fun, the only real bummer was AVP's lack of skirmish mode, but on the plus side, there would be no lag etc. and it would give people who lack a good computer to play the game on a chance to play this amazing game (along with people who could care less about pc games) it would be a risky move but could be cool, depending on how they change it, as the current DOW games have many buttons that would have to have hotkeys on the controller or however you wish to put it, becaause there are to many buttons for it to work well

rts has to be on pc or it will be to complicated:confused::confused::confused::

 #15 - XBOX 360 - Posted by: _BCA_Master_Z (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 01:27
Hey good folk, Surely it would great on ps3 or xb360, i think xbox has a mouse/keyboard available, should take care of micro-problems Greetings overlord was fun on 360

 #16 - Posted by: Spartan1137 (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 01:50
they've done it for things like halo wars and mark of chaos, why not DOW i say

 #17 - Posted by: _BCA_Master_Z (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 02:01
hey, typo on the previous comment: surely it would LOOK great Greetings

 #18 - Posted by: BeanTheKing (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 09:16
Did ya miss me buttercups! FPS for consoles. TBS for hand helds.

 #19 - yeah, why arwe there no RTS games on the DS? - Posted by: sage62 (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 09:30
I just looked back on the comments and they bring up a good point, an RTS on the ds would be awesome, maybe Relic should look into that?

 #20 - Posted by: BeanTheKing (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 09:39
RTS on a handheld? Probably because it'd be annoying as hell. Imagine trying to pay attention to multiple battles, every single squad, the builders, your eco. Plus it'd be like using a mini keyboard.

 #21 - HEY LOOK AT ME !!!!!!!!!!!!! - Posted by: butterrmilk101 (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 10:14
Only if it was a first person shooter like "fire warrior" was...that was a cool game they just screwed up on which race should the story should have been based around... Hey how about another space hulk FPS ? The interactivisty and mircromanaging required to pull off a DOW style game can/should only be done on a kika$$ computer with a kool mouse...... :rock:

 #22 - Posted by: Grand_Master_Bean (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 11:46
butterrmilk101 - so you don't think using Tau was a good idea?? Don't tell me your another person who thinks "Ultramarines are the only way" [b]IF[/b] keyboards and mice become available for 360, ps3 or whatever, then obviously you can play DoW games on them. The only reason a PC is better for it is [i]because[/i] it has a keyboard and mouse PS - i tried to do bold and italics. Did it work???

 #23 - Posted by: BeanTheKing (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 12:45
Yes it worked, and the day 360 gets a mouse and keyboard is the day I give up on humanity.

 #24 - Posted by: rayrayzza (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 14:40
warcraft 2 on thr old playstation was not too bad in fact i found it played better on the ps then on the computer, how ever i think that dow on console would be a bad idea asit would be hard to control, i.e multiple unit selection, battle stances etc, there are just not enough buttons on a joy pad to cope.

 #25 - Posted by: chrisgold (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 15:31
i've got warhammer 40000 squad command on the DS and its pretty good

 #26 - RTS games + Console = - Posted by: Zealot2021 (Member) on 02-22-2008 at 17:34
bad bad gameplay. and bad bad whatnot. :thumbsdown: also equals microsoft trying to greedly buy every thing they can get their dirty fingers on. oh, and equals RTS's WITH REQUIRED ONLINE MONTHLY PAYMENTS! :furious: if RTS's go that way... i might be forced to play Pong... :'(

 #27 - Posted by: Kouen (Staff) on 02-22-2008 at 17:41
Pfft. Like you need a [i]reason[/i] to play Pong.... :p

 #28 - I agree with chrisgold... - Posted by: Neverhoodian (Member) on 02-23-2008 at 00:02
I know it isn't part of the DoW series, but Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command is worth a look. The game has been released for both PSP and the Nintendo DS. Rather than being an RTS, Squad Command is a turn-based game, like Tactics Ogre and the Advance Wars series. You command Space Marines as they fight Chaos Marines in a lengthy campaign, or fight for either side via multiplayer. Since it's turn-based, it's definitely slower paced, but I think fans of TT will find it to be right up their alley. I have the DS version, which means the graphics are worse, but I like the fact that you can see the map and game screen simultaneously rather than having to toggle between the two on the PSP. The story's a joke, gameplay's a bit sloppy, and the voiceovers are so awful that they're awesome (if that makes any sense), but I heartily recommend it to any WH40k fan.

 #29 - Posted by: lasagne_lives (Member) on 02-23-2008 at 01:53
Yeah I don't think it'd work. PS why did they make it so you can't look at comments before you log in. Thats stupid

 #30 - Soz for double post - Posted by: lasagne_lives (Member) on 02-23-2008 at 01:54
... or mabye i just clicked the nme instead of the plus. Duh Roy!!! Duh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 #31 - Posted by: lasagne_lives (Member) on 02-23-2008 at 01:55
I'll tell you my real identity if you want to know

 #32 - Posted by: lasagne_lives (Member) on 02-23-2008 at 01:56
Me and 1000thSon, we are the same person. I just got a bit bored so started flaming people for a laugh. Sorry! It was kinda funny though, wasn't it?

 #33 - Posted by: cs_killem (Member) on 02-24-2008 at 13:46
well there is an rts coming out for the 360 called halo wars, and it does look like an excellent game

 #34 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-24-2008 at 14:32
You ... 1000th son????? nah.

 #35 - Posted by: warnat_lord (Member) on 02-24-2008 at 15:41
anyone remiber fire warrior:eek:thougt so

 #36 - Tiberium Wars... - Posted by: Vancepuppet (Member) on 02-25-2008 at 00:12
I'm not comparing TW and DoW, im just saying that Tiberium Wars was a huge hit on the 360, and converted alot of people. There's a DoW coming out on DS, but i think thats turn-based D:

 #37 - seriously? - Posted by: sage62 (Member) on 02-25-2008 at 00:32
DOW on DS? That would actually work, they'd have to simplify stuff so it would fit on screen, or maybe they could put upgrades and stuff on the top screen controlled with the d-pad, actually, that sounds like it would work, would be a serious bummer if it's turn based though, I've played games like that before, they're (generally) pretty fun, but have nothing on RTS

 #38 - Posted by: lasagne_lives (Member) on 02-25-2008 at 10:38
I think a w40k game a bit like "Star Wars: Battlefront" could work on console.

 #39 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-25-2008 at 10:40
They've already tried making Battlefield: 40k but they canceled the project because it was way to imbalanced.

 #40 - wow, I had thought of that very thing - Posted by: sage62 (Member) on 02-25-2008 at 17:26
#38, weird, i had thought of the exact same thing, and i think it could work, though they would definetlely have to tweak a few things

 #41 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-25-2008 at 18:33
Like eldar guardian weakness and deffinently the weaksness of Imperial Guard. Eldar would do better because they are better.

 #42 - exactly - Posted by: sage62 (Member) on 02-25-2008 at 21:18
well, looking at Star Wars: Battlefront 2, they had to tweak things, for example, logic would dictate that men in armor (Empire and clones) could take more of a punishment then men wearing clothing (Rebels) however, in the game differences fall to their main weapon, with things such as clip size and ammo, so they could probably make the main weapons about the same, except for minor things like that and the projectile itself, also, somthing that struck me a few days ago and i found kind of odd, was that there is no 40k clix game, I don't play clix myself but from what i've seen of it, it would allow people a cheaper and simpler way to enjoy 40k, it would probably work out pretty good, just thinking aloud here

 #43 - wait - Posted by: WhiteSavage (Member) on 02-28-2008 at 05:46
ok well i donno about a consol rts but if they made a battlefront type game, between chaos and sm, i think this could be used to play through the houres herasy.

 #44 - Posted by: Zforce349 (Member) on 02-28-2008 at 06:56
I've tried, and I can't play an RTS on a console... just can't. RTS is for PC :D

 #45 - #43 - Posted by: sage62 (Member) on 02-28-2008 at 11:38
#43, dude forget the SM and Chaos fighting, it's been done to much, if they make a battlefront type game they should include 4 or 6 races in it, probably Orks, Tau, Eldar, Sm, Chaos and Necrons, if they made that, it would be totally wicked

 #46 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 02-28-2008 at 16:11
Yeah. The IG wouldn't do to well in that sort of game.

 #47 - agreed - Posted by: sage62 (Member) on 02-28-2008 at 17:30
I agree with you conti, it would be kind of unfair to have two human armies, especially where in a situation you could have Guardsmen going toe to toe with a Necron and possibly winning

 #48 - I THIK I WILL BE BETER - Posted by: redgreen (Member) on 02-29-2008 at 14:07
