Mass conspiracy? Over-eager fans? Or deliberate misinformation? No matter what the case, it turns out that recent information about Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium Online was not passed down by THQ itself, and these "facts," such as the launch date and class list, should be treated as speculative ...

Later, though, I enjoyed dealing with customers and the free coffee. I had a co-worker, a real chin-scratching, co...
