Based on Warhammer: 40,000 lore, the Energy Fist (also referred to as the Energy Glove) is a late-41st millennium weapon wielded by honoured Area Marine Captains and Chapter Masters. Whereas sluggish to make use of, its highly effective hydraulics imply the fist can hammer straight by means of the aspect of tanks, and finish conflicts with a single, highly effective blow. And but, regardless of the fist's theoretical technological prowess, nobody has seen match to show it from fiction into reality.

That's till Sega, clearly with a advertising finances surplus to burn by way of by the top of the fiscal yr, determined the easiest way to advertise its newest real-time technique recreation Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3 was to construct a reproduction 3000psi Energy Fist, after which have journalists and influencers smash issues with it. Sure, it is a basic PR stunt the likes of which gaming hasn't seen since that point THQ requested individuals to actually break into parked automobiles with a hammer and steal copies of Purple Faction: Guerrilla(!), or when Activision renamed Edinburgh Zoo's wolverine "Logan" to launch X-Males Origins.

And it is simply as brilliantly pointless.
