  • So, what games are we waiting for this year?

    I've got a new PC, but there are not very many compelling games out there for me.. Looking forward, I was wondering what you are all waiting for this year.

    I know StarCraft 2 will be late July. Natural Selection 2 should be sometime this year. Anything else looking good on the horizon?

    Thanks!

    I'm intrigued by the new MoH.

    though to be honest at the moment i'm most looking forward to PR:Vietnam :D

      ARMA2 OA, ARMA2PR, MoH, and Black Ops.

      Hopefully the last two are still tactical enough to justfy my dollars.

          I expect some of these games will have been delayed to 2011, but personally I am looking forward to Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, Brink, Mafia 2, Crysis 2, Portal 2, Natural Selection 2 (lots of sequels here) and Frozen Synapse. They're all the ones I can think of right now, there are many more.
          The new Medal of Honour game interests me, but I'm not expecting much - I'll probably buy it because I was a huge fan of Allied Assault (first FPS game I played).
          The game I'm most looking forward to is Mass Effect 3 (what else?), though it's expected next year.
          Oh, and ForGloryAndPain, what is ArmA2PR? I assume OA is Operation Archer, is PR another expansion or a mod?

            I am also getting a new computer next week, primarily to play GTA4: Episodes and BFBC2 in its full glory.

                Starcraft so far seems to be the only quality, non-console-port game in the pipeline for this year. Don't know about natural selection, but other than that there are really no original things coming that offer innovations worth paying for. What I mean is, there are ver very few games coming that people will play more than a few months imo.

                  You named the two that I've already bought. Am enjoying the SC2 beta so far.

                  I know I'll also enjoy Portal 2 when it drops.

                  Nothing else has really caught my eye. I'm severely disappointed by BF: BC2. Wasted a lot of money for my son and I to get that game. My wife will probably succeed in talking me out of purchasing any more games until they've been reviewed thoroughly for the next year or so...

                      I've got four on my list but only have enough for two on release: Brink, Interstellar Marines, Starcraft 2, and Call of Duty: Black Ops (assuming it's not a cheat fest like MW2).

                      Starcraft 2 was not high on my list of "to buys" until today. Interstellar Marines and Brink is fighting for #1 spot on my list.

                        DCS A-10C expansion - I don't think a date has been announced yet but I'm hoping that comes out later this year.
                        Steel Beasts Pro PE - ok, an old game, but I believe a big update for that is on the horizon so I'm looking forward to that
                        Command Ops Battles from the Bulge - Awesome strat game that should be out soon
                        The next installment of Achtung Panzer - again no date on the next title but hoping its this year
                        The Red Pill - interesting little strat game from an independent developer
                        Combat Mission Shock Force Afghanistan

                              I would say these are the big games left for 2010. A few may slip to 2011 and some will surely disappoint due to console background.

                              ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead
                              Mount and Blade Warband
                              Fallout: New Vegas
                              Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad
                              Natural Selection 2
                              Brink
                              Mafia 2
                              Crysis 2
                              Civilization V
                              Starcraft 2
                              Portal 2
                              Final Fantasy XIV Online
                              Medal of Honor
                              Deus Ex: Human Revolution
                              Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
                              BF1943
                              Alpha Protocol
                              Need for Speed World
                              Fear 3
                              Dead Rising 2
                              All Points Bulletin
                              Call of Duty: Black Ops

                              Lot of smaller ones out there that may not sell as well but have a market. A few of these could "come out of nowhere" and spread through word of mouth.
