The battle for middle earth.
Anyone know that up-coming game?

Its an RTS so it'll be probably foreign to you since KOTOR:TSL is an RPG.

well, the concept of an rts isn't foreign to me. i've had the chance to play several rts's ranging from the c&c series to starcraft (my personal favorite at the moment). lotr: bfme is a game that i'm looking forwards to, along with:

half-life 2
kotor: tsl
roller coaster tycoon 3

and to a lesser extent:
halo 2

trust me: i play much more than rpg's. :D

That looks interesting. ;)

IMHO Total Annihilation is the Best RTS ever made (Got Artillery!), even compared to the legendary Starcraft.

Starcraft is an excellent RTS in its own right, though the Siege Tank is inefficient as Artillery... Some of the Human and Protoss and all of the Zerg units do make up for it though, if only through their comments, or the ever effective Zergling Rush.

I still have both of them on my HDD's, and I still play them. Like stingerhs I also play much more than RPG's. :D

In the site i just post in the first you can find screenshots and videos of that criteria. Watch ITB=In the battle and it will be a viewing pleasure.

why would i constantly curse the xbox if i had one?? :eyeraise:

i only said that i wanted halo 2 because it sounds like an incredible game. nothing more, and nothing less. ;)

i really, really wish for three things:

1. a simultaneous kotor: tsl release

2. a pc version of halo 2

3. a pc version of the chronicles of riddick: escape from butcher bay

since those things are very unlikely at this point in time: *curses the xbox* :fist:

Yep... Just finished a game a few minutes ago too. :D

I have yet to see an RTS that can match Total Annihilation pound for pound, let alone the lords of the battlefield the Vulcan / Buzzsaw, or the Big Bertha's / Intimidator's, I so do love long-range artillery. :D

I would just love to see a game company, that has the rights, spruce up the game a little and stabalize its engine for Win XP/2K and re-release it.

Oh well! :D

Joins stingerhs in *Cursing the Xbox!* :fist:

IMHO Warcraft III is a good game, it just suffers from trying to be several things at once, it is a more jack-of-all trades game than a pure RTS.

Blizzard tried to add RPG elements into a RTS game, they did a bang-up job too, so don't get me wrong, but because of this, it lost some of the coolest aspects of a "pure" RTS. The Hero units, the Items, and the low unit/food limit are the parts that I am referring to.

Believe it or not, I am too. ;)

Blizzard gave WCIII a very unique feeling. Also some of the units sayings made me fall out of my chair laughing when I heard them. :D

I'm not really a fan of any of the LOTR games. The only RTS's that get my attention are the more strategical/battle orientated ones. All this resource gathering is just too complicated :p

Which is why I currently have an obsession with Rome Total War. :D
