i like my nids and marines o3o
it'd be funny if i could combine the 2 of them XD

also since you're all getting dow2 we should play! o3o
They are already combined. There was an article on the website where a Magos Biologis finds out that tyrant guards contain DNA from Space Marine implants. Of course that's horrible heresy according to Space Marine chaplains.

well...ummm.... it makes sense >.> that's not really "cimbining" though... the nids absorb all materials on a planet and turn it into bio-plasm which they use to create more of themselves.... it would only make sense that they shared some of the same DNA as what they consumed.... the genestealers being the biggest example of this of course.

Tyranids not only absorb biomass but also integrate enemy DNA. For example the fleet that attacked Iyanden seemingly developed a higher number of psionic active organisms.

So my DoW2: Chaos Rising package was sent from Minnesota to Indianapolis on 28th. I was about dancing for joy because Indianapolis is just a few hours drive. Well apparently on the 1st the driver got lost and ended up in Tennessee. So he overshot me, traveled across the Ohio River, and went through Kentucky before realizing his mistake and letting me know he was lost in Tennessee.

So now the driver will be attempting to drive my order back to Evansville.

All of this is according to the tracking log for my order.

I just picked up my copy of DOW2:Retribution yesterday. I have not installed it yet since I have not finished the previous campaign. It took some getting used to DOW2 being more Tactical RPG than RTS (which I prefer and am much better at), but THQ/Relic has maintained the quality level well.

I played the Last Stand Mode yesterday. New map is for leveled peeps. The Lord General has a dull start but picks up at level 4+ with a tarantula turret followed by a guard squad. I <3 the sniper rifle, one shotting zoans makes wave 8 cake.
