Ditto to Admiral Raven. I have no idea when it will be coming out, but DANG it looks amazing. The castle sieges in particular blow my mind. Trying to attack a castle build on top of sheer cliffs with only a few narrow approaches to bash away at the wall only to find another ring of walls behind it. Just insanely cool. It doesn't sound as formulaic as Rome Total War was (while being an amazing game, sieges tended to be very similar).

I saw a 4 page preview in PC Gamer that absolutely blew me away. I'm salivating over that game.

Yeah Winter for METW2. Ive a friend who works for the creative assembly and he keeps teasing me as I am a huge fan. Notice as well, that they, like Petroglyph, have been snapped up by Sega for RTS games.

Indeed...semi creepy...soon we'll have to refer to Sega as a big PC game publisher...and that's just odd to me since I grew up with a Genesis and was a Sonic fan and all that stuff...yeah...just kinda blows my mind.

My interest has been piqued though. Sega seems to be sneaking up on the gaming world all of the sudden after recovering from the Dreamcast...maybe it's just me not noticing, but they seem to be creeping into all sorts of areas I didn't expect.

I'm looking forward to the expansion that has been announced for Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War. They're adding the Tau and another race

Oh and Medieval 2 Total War of course

I love DoW but after playing it for many hours online, I discovered just how bad the pathfinding can be. Units are forever getting stuck and the one thing I can't stand and makes me scream like a girl is when a unit see's an enemy unit close range, attacks it, but lets the enemy unit continue along its path because if it goes out of a certain 'zone', my unit returns back to where it was and lets the enemy unit carry on...despite any stance I put it on...grrrrrr

I think, if you like large scale battles like no other, I recomend Rome Total War without fail. But if you like something really indepth but not graphically pleasing.... REBELLION!

The upcoming RTS I'm most excited about is definitely Supreme Commander, the 'spiritual sequel' to Total Annihilation. The game has a real sense of scale, and includes units from infantry to tanks to strategic bombers to battleships to aircraft carriers, all sized appropriately and on a humongous map. It relies more on true simulation (for instance, calculating the actual trajectory of a cannon shell to determine whether or not it hits a moving target) than rock-paper-scissors relationships. It's also elimenated a number of micromanagement issues by allowing you to appoint a computerized commander to monitor your base while you concentrate on the strategy.

Some links:

http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/supreme-com.../632026p1.html

http://pc.ign.com/articles/695/695946p1.html

Unfortunately, the official website doesn't have much at this point.

C&C 3 Tiberium Wars, but it's still quite a long time from being released. And I wonder how it will work out in the end, seeing as how they messed up with C&C Generals.

My list in order of anticipation:

EaW doesn't make the list because I really only like half the game-the space battles.

Even though I hardly played space marines, dreadnoughts is what got me into it as I wasnt a fan of the squad system right away. Oh man that lovely voice acting in the game

Command me

And I think pathfinding is still ok. Tough to find a good rpg without bad pathfinding now and then Although for Baneblade (especially custom maps, but yeah custom) it can be a real pain in the ass.

I'm hardly waiting for StarTrek:Legacy as it seems something like Starfleetcommand or better than that. I liked those MP Servers and
turning hexes with others on the map. HOpe it will be, in MP Part,
something like that.

Also War Front - Turning Point looks interesting, as it is a WWII RTS
with basebuilding and resources, what I was really really waiting for.

Gota checkout Supreme Commander. Space RTS Game ???

I'm looking forward to Medieval 2 as well. I have Medieval and Rome TW, and both of those were great (Europe now belongs to the Julii ). Can't wait to see what happens in the next one.

Still, what I'd really like is a Star Wars Homeworld game... Full 360 degree space strategy sim. The mods for HW1 and HW2 are nice, but not as nice as a commercial game would be.

Medieval II : Total War, defiantely. the more I learn about this game, the more excited I get. I'm having so much fun replaying RTW with different factions or simply using different strategies. the game is so deep and has so much to do, MTW2 has so much potential. All the enhancments made to the gameplay will help make this game one of the best RTS ever made, mark my words.

I haven't followed Supreme Commander very closely, but from what I've seen it looks very solid and very promising

Well, I just got Company of Heroes and everyone thought Empire at War had online problems! CoH struggles with pathfinding, a common problem with Dawn of War (Relic made both) yet reviews are raving. Game is ok - not ground breaking just normal WW2 game.

It certainly is pretty, but yeah, not the greatest ever made, but pretty good. It's not like it has a lot of competition in the WW2 RTS sub-genre.

No matter, Dark Crusade is coming really soon and I can't wait

I'm saddened that so few are keeping any interest on Supreme Commander. It will finally be a true real time STRATEGY game, not the tactical stuff that WC3 made popular.

Medieval 2 I am looking forward to, but that is not an RTS, it is a Turn Based Strategy game with a few RTS elements thrown in, and those aren't as good as its TBS part. I hated the morale issue of R:TW. Roman Soldiers did not run away while they were anywhere near the italian penisula, otherwise they would never be able to show their faces near anybody who had anything to do with Rome. Morale buckled under far too easily, even for the Gaul. They would fight to the last man, regardless of who was coming at them, because of their fierce pride of their country, and similarly the romans. Meh. I hope M:TW2 fixes a bit of that problem.

SupCom is definitely going to be the RTS to get, I just hope it doesn't suffer the fate that TA did: IE not very many people knew about it, but it was way better than the alternatives, including CNC and StarCraft.

One thing is for certain. THQ are certainly becoming masters of publishing triple A RTS games. Dawn of War, Company Of Heroes and now Supreme Commander - not including expansions of course for the first title.

2007 will certainly be a big year again, so many new RTS games coming out and the new one from Petroglyph, being published by Sega

Company of Heroes had me going for a few weeks, but now I am getting really annoyed, because I can't find the change hotkeys menu. I wait for the modding tools, I have to remove the pop count again.

Just letting all those waiting for M2TW that there is a demo out. apparently it has been out for a couple of days already, but I just found out about it. It has a tutorial mission as well as two other historical battles. It looks like it's gonna require a good machine to run this game well.

The demo was a lot of fun and I can't wait for the full game !

It's been out for a few weeks actually, but it doesn't support SSE 1 or something like that. Athlon XP users (like me) and users of several other non-Intel processors cannot play it.

Creative Assembly has stated that they're working out the issues regarding SSE2's problem with the older AMD processors and that the full version should support them.
