Funnily enough, given that there is no new information that actually tells us anything, I still feel the same.
Marketing wise I seriously doubt this was the best way to do it. I'm certainly not too sold on the idea of the new system from (let's face it) what little we have been told.
I still feel we need to see this game in action (or better yet play a demo), but if it was only a prototype shown at GenCon and the finished product is still at least a quarter away (which given FFG's past performance, will most likely be extended. Not a complaint, the finished products are often of awesome quality and I would much rather wait for awesome than get chaff quickly) I can't see either happening for a long time.
Shame really. As I have said to one of my RL mates who frequents these forums, if after playing this new version I find that it is great, is a much better way of roleplaying in the warhammer world and is a fine example of awesome, I will staunchly advocate it to everyone I know (and some I don't!).
But, I will not spend nearly £90 (cost to import to the UK at the moment, who knows how much it'll be to buy from a retailer over here when it is released) to try it. This is still a high price, no ifs, no buts, no "consider the content". I cannot afford to spend that much in one go at the moment. Please consider that to play a game of Dark Heresy (assuming I don't already have all the books) I would only have to spend £35 to £40 and my mates and I could play a game. No, we do not NEED to buy any other book to play a campaign, ALL other books are supplementary. Yes all the other books will add to the game and quite possible increase our enjoyment, but, bottom line, I do not NEED to spend over £40 to play a game of Dark Heresy.
Hell, I don't actually NEED to spend any money, as I can download a couple of demo adventures off the net.
Don't get me wrong, I will scrimp and scrounge to save £90 to buy a game I know I like. But to try a new game that I have reservations about ...
