Blood Bowl Teaser Trailer

Upon hearing the title of this game and watching the first 20 or so seconds of this trailer (counting the 10 seconds of logo bullshit) I thought to myself "mutant league football on a next gen system, finally!" and then I read this silliness...

A brutal team sport unfolding in a parallel fantasy world based on Warhammer and American football, Blood Bowl invites gamers to form a team of players from races including: Orcs, Elves, Humans, Dwarfs and many other fantasy creatures, and launch themselves into battle in the bloodiest of arenas. This strategy sports game combines a fine balance of tactics and bone crunching action.

Gag me with a fucking orc club! Strategy sports game?! It's not like sports games as vehicles for game franchises are anything new, dating back to the days of Mega Man Soccer on the SNES, but christ! This game, at least in title and appearance, had the potential to actually deserve the "blood" in it's title, you know, with orcs punching oppoonents heads off and the like, but I've already heard whisperings of the option of "turn-based gameplay", which sounds about as exciting to me as watching grass grow and makes me want to forget I ever got excited about this title.

Thoughts?
