Been meanig to do this for a while...
Anyone want to point out any upcoming games that have caught their eye?

It's probably redundant to post about the big ones like HL2, Doom3 and WoW, but if anyone has any other games they like the look of then post them here.

These threads seem to be about in various places, so I have a quick reply ;) I'm going to make the assumptions of 2004 releases.

PC
- Star Wars BattleFront
- Dungeon Lords
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
- Medal of Honor Pacific Assault
- Call of Duty: United Offensive
- Gothic II: Night of the Raven (if it gets a US release)
- Call of Cthulhu
- Bard's Tale
- Doom 3 (yeah, I'll get it ... but will it be as good as Painkiller ;) )
- HL2 (the first one never 'did it' for me, but this one might be decent)

GBA
- Tron 2.0 Killer App
- Star Wars: Apprentice of the Force

(I don't have or care about console games ... well, we do have a GameCube, but I don't care about it ...)

... then heading into 2005 we get KotOR II, SW Republic Commando, F.E.A.R., Dragon Age, The Witcher ... and whenever NWN2 and BG3 arrive, I'll be wanting them ...

I'll start:

Kohan 2: Kings of War

The first (two) kohan game(s) were great. I've never been that huge of a fan of RTS games as i find the base building repetetive and the combat to be mainly about numbers rather than tactical skill. Kohan changed all this. Base building was nicely automated, but still with the odd strategic decision. Combat was all about formations of (correctly grouped) units being used tactically... with terrain, leaders, supply, control, morale and other issues being much more important than numbers.

The sequel looks like it will maintain all the cool features, while updating it to 3d and streamlining the UI.

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines

I've not really been following this, but a few recent previews have made me take interest. First, it uses the HL2 engine, second, the game it seems closest to seems to be the original Deus Ex.
I loved DX, and found the sequel dissappointing... but this looks like it might follow on the DX tradition in a different universe. (one that i though looked interesting when they were making the first vamp masquerade PC game... but that game didn't turn out how i had hoped at all)

Other than that I'll just wait and see... maybe I'll get SW: Battlefrons :)

Yes, just watch the Halo 2 Theatrical Trailer, at the end, www.xbox.com turns into www.ilovebees.com for a split second. Go there, it'll tell you about something happening soon!! And then, something happening in 15 days (it changes to mean August 16th...). I highlighted invisible text, and found it saying weird stuff that are like logo sayings on the Bungie website.

Rome: Total War. The greatest strategy game of all time.

And KotOR 2. But the one I'm really excited about is RTW. :cool:

Awesome. (http://www.totalwar.com/community/rp10.htm)

Hey Samuel Dravis, I saw a show on the History channel, and they used Rome: Total War to simulate a battle between Hannible and Nepoleon or something.
It looked tight :D

Yeah, it's called "Decisive Battles". They had pretty much the same thing last year on BBC. It was called "Time Commanders". I want to watch them, but don't have cable. I've seen a few of the TC series and it's sweet. The only thing that annoys me is that some of the teams that play are really, really terrible at tactics. I have Medieval: TW and even I didn't lose so badly when I first tried playing it (without reading the manual beforehand, of course).

And I almost forgot:

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (http://www.dreamfall.com)
Man, that game is going to be so awesome....If you've played TLJ, you know why I'm so excited about it. The best storytelling I've ever seen in a game. Beliveable characters, realistic scenes, great voice acting. Adventure games don't get any better than TLJ.

Ok, i think i'll add Battlefront, KOTOR2 and Halo 2 to the list of games we all already know about.

What i was hoping for was to discover a few of the less hyped games that are coming out and why people are excited about, rather than just a list of all the games we all know all about...

*KOTOR 2
*Final Fantasy 12
*Final Fantasy FF7 AC(yeah its a movie, but it counts sorta since it uses most of the characters from the game !)
*Carmen Electra Strip Poker

Well, that depends on what you like - Dungeon Lords and Call of Cthulhu are certainly not on 'murderer's row' (what a report referenced on GameSpy called the combination of big name games coming out this fall/winter), and S.T.A.L.K.E.R., while not unknown, is a challenger to those big name games.

I am also looking forward to NBA Live 2005. I am a hoops junkie afterall. :)

I'm taking a wait-and-see approach to Robotech Invasion, but I'm am keen to see how it turns out. I watched Robotech religiously as a kid, and I am a huge Macross fan. I just got Battlecry recently, and although it isn't the best game, I find it a lot of fun and it does do a great job of bring nostalgia by allowing old fans like me to fly a Valkyrie. I'm hoping for a similar trip down memory lane with Invasion. Here's hoping. :)

Half-Life 2, Call of Duty : United Offensive, Star Wars : Republic Commando :rolleyes: duh !


Brothers in Arms

This game looks awsome, you play a squad leader from the 101st Airborne dropped in Normandy on D-Day. You actually issue orders to your squad. While your fire team provides suppressing fire, the other part of your squad, the assault team, will go around and directly engage the enemy. The game features real small scale military tactics.

Realism is the word here, your squad members all have a personality and background story, the battles you fight really took place and the environment was recreated from orignal reconnaissance pictures from the time. This means the battlefield is very close to what it was like in 1944. I'll definately get this one.


Legend Of Zelda (GCN)

I've been a fan of the Zelda series for so long... I enjoyed all the games I've played from the series (I havent played Majora's Mask :p). This title will feature amazing graphics and an incredible atmosphere, I can't wait.

Well I dont know how many people here know about Fable, but if you dont, and you own an Xbox.....learn more about it. It's coming out in September and if you like RPG's, and this game lives up to half of it's hype, you are going to LOVE it.
