thanx scav....and oh yeah...i did forget about duke nukem forever. but, i'm not sure when that game comes out..i thought it was next year when that comes out. maybe i'm wrong. there is so many games comn out this year that look cool. one other cool look game is Global Operation., but i don't tink it will be good enough to buy. i'll play the demo until i get bored of it.

i think SoF2 and JKO will definitly be the best. they look the best anyway. WAY TO GO RAVEN!!!

OH, my bad...where should i have put this topic? i'm kinda new around here :)

Welcome to the forums waazzuupp. (check the sig for you welcome gift ;).

Just a quick FYI...we discuss everything related to the game in The Valley Of The Jedi, and anything off-topic goes in Yoda's Swamp. ;)

Get ready...we're being air-lifted out of here and dumped in the Swamp. Please provide some recon... :cool:

Oh, BTW...here's a list of the games on my Wanted List for this year...

1. Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
2. Soldier Of Fortune II: Double Helix
3. Unreal II
4. Unreal Tournament II
5. New World Order
6. Chaser
7. Medal Of Honour: Allied Assault
8. Serious Sam 2
9. C & C: Renegade
10. Call Of Cthulhu: Dark Corners Of The Earth
11. Counter Strike: Condition Zero
12. Kreed (looks like strong competition for the Unreal engine)
13. Maelstrom
14. Deus Ex 2
15. Duke Nukem Forever (if they don't release it this year, then they shouldn't bother at all)
16. Halo (it's supposed to be in development...but it might get pushed into next year)
17. Half-Life 2 (if you believe the rumour mill ;P )
18. Iron Storm (in which World War I never ended...)
19. Wanted: Dead or Alive (a western which looks very nice)
20. Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
21. Arx Fatalis (nice-looking 1st person RPG)
22. Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic
23. Outcast 2 (not related to JK: Outcast)
24. Archangel (early screenshots look okay)
25. Bounty Hunter (by Warthog...just hope they remember they mentioned it for the PC as well as consoles)
26. Die Hard: Nakatomi Plaza
27. Dungeon Siege (a maybe...I'll have to try a demo first)
28. Neverwinter Nights (ditto DS)
29. The Thing (based on the John Carpenter movie - if the PC version is any good)
30. Warcraft III (I'll have to try the demo first)
31. Internal Pain (got a whole bunch of screenshots...but it's been mighty quiet since they were released...hmmm....)

There are a few others I'm looking into, but those are the main ones.

Also on my list are Doom III, Thief III, Quake IV, Unreal Warfare, Judge Dredd, Duality or No One Lives Forever 2 but I wouldn't expect to see any of these until 2003. Then again, you never know... :D

Here's my list. It's looking pretty meager due to the fact that I'm not a big FPS player and that seems to be the majority of big releases this year, plus the fact that I can't run half the stuff.

1)JKII (if not I wouldn't be here)
2)Heroes of Might and Magic IV (nice TBS, plus I'm a fan of the Might and Magic series)
3)WarCraft III (If I could run it. I think I'm going to make sure one of my friends buys it, then try their copy to see if it will work on my comp decently. If not i'll just live at their house.)
4)SW: Galaxies (If i could run it. No way this is happening unless I get a new comp)
5)That other SW RPG, the SP one (maybe, I obviously havn't looked into it a whole lot. The first three on this list have a mighty big shaddow)

If you're referring to mine...yeah, it's a lot...and I've got finite financial resources. But everything I've read so far on these games has got me interested. Enter spreadsheets, databases, laws of probability, S.O.D's law, and trying to make sense out of all the misinformation floating around on the Net. :D

I'm probably looking at 2-3 games per month, but it depends a lot on whether some of these titles are any good. Some could turn out to be rubbish, or very average, in which case they'll be struck off that list in an eye-blink. :)

I'm currently playing catch-up on some of last year's releases, as well... :eek:

StormHammer
01-19-2002, 10:17 PM
StarScrap...if you like RTS games, there are a few others supposed to be coming out this year...

1. Age Of Mythology
2. Anno 1503
3. Warlords Battlecry 2
4. Impossible Creatures
5. Project Nomad
6. Dark Planet

I'm new to the genre myself...I played the demo for Cossacks: European Wars, and it got me hooked (if 6-7 hour gaming sessions on random maps is anything to go by). So I'm planning on getting that, plus it's expansion pack (Cossacks: Art Of War), plus SWGB anytime soon, and AoEII. ;)

01-19-2002, 10:51 PM
On my wanted list I have

1. JK2
2. C&C Renegade
3. Halo for PC, if it gets out this year.
4. SOF2
5. Maybe a few other things but that's all I can think of for now.

waazzuupp
01-19-2002, 11:29 PM
yeah, i was refering to your list stormhammer. those are all pretty coll lookn games. i'll probably try the demos of most of them on your list, but probably not buy them. gotta save some money for a new computer :)

StephenG

This year will be a really good year for the PC. So many games, so little money...

1. Jedi Outcast- did someone say Lightsaber?
2. Global Operations - the multiplayer game that requires alot more team work than CS.
3. Mafia- This game looks really good
4. Hitman 2- even more ways to get the "job" done.
5. Outcast 2- First Outcast was one of the best games i've ever played, hoping O2 is even better.
6. SoF2- i wanna blow off some limbs!!!

hmm, thats about it.

StormHammer, your list pretty much covers what I would like this year too. Thanks for writing it for me! ;)

Only thing I would add is Natural Resistance, which I saw and read about for the first time in the newest issue of PCG UK. Sounds, and looks, like a great game!

CaptainRAVE
01-20-2002, 06:18 AM
My list is pretty similar to Stormhammers (hardly surprising considering he mentioned all the good game comming out this year :))........

1. Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
2. Soldier Of Fortune II: Double Helix
3. Unreal II
4. Unreal Tournament II
5. C & C: Renegade (Maybe if I get bored)
6. Deus Ex 2
7. Half-Life 2, (possibly??)
8. Outcast 2

And hopefully an announcement that Starcraft 2 has started production.......we can hope :)

UberChild
01-20-2002, 06:52 AM
Definitly jk 2 above all else
WArcraft 3
unreal 2.. i think these 3 will probably (hopefully) keep me busy for the year (well these are the 3 i will buy without hesitation) ..if not maybe ..
medal of honour..
Duke nukem..
not really keen on sf2 unless the gameplay is really AMAZING..

but cos jk2 has bot support.. i think it will live in my hd..(with a small break to clock u2 and war3 when they each come out):atat:

CaptainRAVE
01-20-2002, 06:57 AM
Well, in theory, at the top of everyones list should be JK2, otherwise they wouldnt be in this forum :cool:

StormHammer did hit all the good titles comming out hopefully this year. I found it interesting he mentioned Kreed as one of the titles. The screen shots of this game are the best I've seen in a first person shooter. They look even better than Unreal 2! The lighting and shadow effects are over the top. I hope the Kreed game engine can do outdoor graphics just as well. If so, many game developers could be using this game engine in the future.

Hey CaptainRAVE, you mean to say that you're waiting for an SC2 anouncement, but you AREN'T going to get WC3? SHAME! Actually I wouldn't expect SC2 for quite a while, maybe 3 or 4 years. First off that seems to be the time between RTS games for them, and they're also working on Worlds of Warcraft of whatever it's called.

Agen
01-20-2002, 12:07 PM
Here it comes...........
1. Dark Force 3 : Jedi Knight 2 : Jedi Outcat (had to add df3 :D )
2. GTA3(sorry aussies)
3.SoF2
4. Unreal Tournament 2
5.Counter Strike: Condition Zero
6.Halo
7.Duke Nukem Forever
8.Medal Of Honour: Allied Assault
9.Half Life 2 (really?)
10.Serious Sam (good ol' Killin sprees.

Any i'm off

CaptainRAVE
01-20-2002, 01:13 PM
You added Dark Forces 3!!!........lol.......that name is huge, especially if they bring out an expansion pack.

I have never actually played the Warcraft series, but im not expecting SC2 for about 3 years either....and that 3 years is the announcement date.

there is still hope! there talking about added a R18+ rating. i really really hope they do an R18+ rating is inforced over here. if its stays like this then we aussies will miss out on GTA2, Mafia, SOF2 and many more.

01-20-2002, 08:32 PM
I'll put it this way CaptainRAVE. Warcraft I and II pretty much suck by todays standards, but they were awsome in their time. Warcraft III is not going to be anything like I and II. It's different enough that they've slapped a different genre name onto it (RPS, role playing strategy).

Oh and Stormhammer, thanks for the heads up on those games. I havn't heard of most of them, but I'll look into Battlecry 2.

No Problem :)

If you can't find links for them...look on VoodooExtreme (ve3d.com), because that's where I got the info. over the last couple of months... ;)

Hey StromHammer how ya doin. I see you mentioned Die Hard Nakatomi Plaza, I saw it on the back of my No One Lives Forever case and it looked awesome, so I searched for it on the internet and I couldn't find it any where. is it still in development? I just thought it got canceled. Could you point me in the right directiion of any news of it or screenshots? that would be awesome.

StormHammer
01-21-2002, 04:36 AM

Well, psycoglass, if you follow this link (http://gamespot.com/gamespot/stories/news/0,10870,2838351,00.html) you'll find an update, some screens, and a link to a full preview of the game.

BTW...it's slated for a mid-March release. :D

Star Wars Starfighter(PC)
Jedi Outcast
Knights of the Old Republic
Die Hard: Nakatomi Plaza
No One Lives Forever 2
Broken Sword (3) - The Sleeping Dragon
Good Cop Bad Cop (http://www.revolution.co.uk/good_cop_bad_cop/index.html)

A game none of you have mentioned is <b>Project IGI: 2</b>, which looks amazing, as did the first game, but this one adds better AI and Multiplayer.

Don't sweat it. ;)

OH and what is Kreed?

It's an FPS being developed by Burut Software (Russian), and the tech. for the engine has been likened to Doom III...although I think it looks more like the Unreal engine. Anyway, there was a recent preview here (http://houseospank.com/cgi-bin/news/stories/2002/01/18/10113354189.shtml), so go check it out. ;)

Blizzard has never been know to rush, which is why almost every one of their games is awesome.
