So i was walking along my favorite mall and decided to visit my favorite game retailer. I was totally not expecting it. But lo and behold, there was this little game clad in aluminum that didn’t seem to get display preference on the shelf. I squinted, and looked again. Rubbed my eyes and looked one more time. It was a gaw-darn-nit Limited Edition of Total War: Warhammer!!! I couldn’t believe my luck! I asked the sales lady when the item shipped and she said last night. They literally haven’t stacked it up yet so i was one of the first today to get a limited edition copy. And as stated, this leads to an unexpected unboxing of this juicy little morsel from Sega.
Pretty standard for a limited edition. Embossed box art. A protective cardboard sleeve of some sort with the game details.
But what really got me was the embossed symbol on the back.
For Emperor! For Sigmar!
So for you warhammer fans out there, this is totally a game to get! Get it?
So if you want to get your fix of the game (buy original only), hop over to your favorite Datablitz retailer to get a copy. And yes, i am not ashamed to shamelessly plug my favorite game retailer in the hopes that they eventually let us review their games to augment to their marketing exposure!
Special note to Sega, this franchise has been going along for years now. I’ve been following their Total War series up to Atilla. Though some of you naysayers who just can’t take strategy would look low on the repetitive manner, my hat still goes off to SEGA. I miss their dreamcast but hey, i’ll always pump quarters into their arcade games and whatever they’ve got. (Missing my Megadrive x64).
I find it odd though that this game shipped right before the launch of Blizzard’s Warcraft movie here locally. But then again i’d rather think Bliz got the idea from the ahem, somewhere else. Dungeons and Dragons of course! And of course those space marines aren’t a rip-off from Warhammer 40k.. of course not! LOL
Enjoy gaming toonheads!
