Blood Bowl to improve inter-species relations in 2010 (and not just in Kentucky)

by: Ben Berry -
People are always coming up with great job titles in the PC industry to spruce up boring jobs. It started back at Apple way back in the day with the "Mac Evangelist", and was soon followed by "Web Jedi", "Database Ninja Master", and of course the feared "3rd level of enlightenment, his holiness, the Network Administrator".

So, it was disconcerting to read that SouthPeak Games has a position title of "Manager of Human-Orc Relations". Even if that's just a title used to promote the fact that Blood Bowl is coming to North America in 2010; it's still kind of scary. Does this mean there are people who work below the manager of human-orc relations? Would you want to be an associate administrator of human-orc relations? I'm guessing those negotiating sessions involve pain and at least several tele-conferences. Lord knows, that's probably worse than being attacked by Orcs. Anyways, catch the jump for the actual news on this release.
SOUTHPEAK ANNOUNCES BLOOD BOWL® COMING TO RETAIL WINDOWS PC, XBOX 360™ AND PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) SYSTEM
 
Legendary Games Workshop® Tabletop Game Blitzes Console and Handheld Players, Their Defense is Powerless

MIDLOTHIAN, VA - December 29, 2009 – 
Leading videogame publisher, SouthPeak Games, today announced Blood Bowl® for Windows PC, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system coming in 2010. The hard-hitting fantasy football title previously available exclusively as a Windows PC downloadable game is lobbing a ‘Hail Mary’ pass straight onto retail shelves in 2010.
 
Just in time for the human football season’s end, SouthPeak is here to offer a less than traditional spin on classic football. With a rich heritage of table-top gaming, Blood Bowl is poised to tear your Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PSP system a new end zone. With turn-based gameplay and each play teetering on the roll of the dice, Blood Bowl will keep you on the edge of your seat from kickoff to final score. Inspired by the infamous Warhammer® series, Blood Bowl brings some of the most vicious gameplay, dirty tricks and lest we forget – secret weapons – to the field in an all new way.
 
“We’re thrilled to have a part in bringing a proper retail version of Blood Bowl to North American gamers on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PSP.” said Aubrey Norris, Manager of Human-Orc Relations at SouthPeak. “It’s never easy to get all these races to agree on something – but if there’s one thing they love its good competition with a lot of bloodshed!”
 
Blood Bowl’s retail Windows PC and Xbox 360 packages will kick-off in January 2010 with the PSP system version taking the field in Spring of 2010. If you’ve never seen a goblin thrown into the end zone by a troll to score a touchdown, then prepare to be amazed! More details are sure to pop up as the teams get themselves in order and the pre-season action begins.
