Hello and welcome back to the Weekend Whammy. I’m your host with the most crippling depression. I thought I’d kick off this week with a random fun fact about myself. One of my greatest pet peeves is people who go to petrol stations, get their petrol and then proceed to do about a week’s worth of shopping. Look, just get your petrol, pay for it, get back in the car, go park up and then go do your shopping. Don’t make me sit 20 minutes behind you in a car, waiting for you to find which broccoli you want to eat. Right, get in the car, GO!
I missed last weekend’s Weekend Whammy, but I’m back and as mediocre as ever! HUZZAH! And this damn cold I’ve had since New Year finally seems to be loosening its grasp on me. I still feel rough around the edges, but I’m considerably better than I was, so let’s do this!
Once again it’s time to go back to the eternally dark Warhammer universe where friendly hand shakes are a myth and even the baby sitters wear spiky armour and wield lethal weapons. The first Battlefleet Gothic: Armada proved to be a surprise, offering up some brilliant spaceship battling. Considering that the Warhammer licence gets handed out like free candy these days it was even nicer to be gifted a game about massive spaceships clashing. Now, though, we have Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2, the sequel that offers more ships, more factions and more awesomeness.

Games Workshop doesn’t seem to be very particular when it comes to handing out the license to their Warhammer universe. Sometimes it feels like a month can’t go by without another billion video games popping up with the Warhammer name scrawled across the box art. As a result we’ve had a rollercoaster of quality, ranging from the utterly naff to the brilliant to everything between. This one, though, certainly sits on one of the higher peaks of the ride.
