What up-and-coming game releases are you looking forward (or for the unemployed) saving up for in the coming months?

As for me:

Dead Space
Killzone 2
Gears of War 2

(P.S. you can thank penguinboy for this thread! :walter: lol)

Oh hey, I was just thinking about this! Wait a minute....

Anyway, there's craploads of games I'm looking forward to playing, and they're all coming out before the end of this year (I think). Here they are, in order of approximate release date, and in brackets is my "rate-it-before-you-play-it scale" (tm):

Far Cry 2 (high)
Red Alert 3 (medium-low)
Fallout 3 (medium-high)
Red Faction 3 (low)
Dragonball DS (medium)
Call of Duty: World at War (medium-low)
Mirror's Edge (high)
Tomb Raider: Underworld (medium)
Left 4 Dead (very high)
Wolfenstein (low)
GTA4 PC version (medium-high)
Quake Live (medium)
Prince of Persia (high)

Out of these, the one that gets priority for my cash is Left 4 Dead, but luckily someone is buying it for me :D

Yeah, i wanna get left4dead but it's not on the PS3, damn. i'll have to get the PC version. AS for some of those:

Tomb Raider: Underworld (nah really used to be into Tomb raider but not anymore, looks sweet though)

Prince of Persia (oh yeah, forgot this one)

And I'm looking forward to 'Damnation'

Don't ban me but its a real game that looks real cool thats not being very well advertised...

Far Cry 2 (pre-ordered, ships the day before release)
Dawn of War 2 (The only good looking RTS title coming out now that we know RA3 will be a pile of shit)
Left 4 Dead (I love Counter-Strike and I love TF2 and this is a merging of their 2 development teams. It can't go wrong.)

also, please dont divert the thread to this matter, but i must ask hl_hotdog. Why on earth would you want to soil a Source game by playing it on a console?

Mirror's Edge, L4D, Starcraft II, Diablo 3 (although no promise they'll be out anytime soon), Far Cry 2.

Diablo 3 is on my list, but I'll eat my hat if it comes out this year.

Left 4 Dead, Mirror's Edge, Resident Evil 5.

Basically all I care about for the next half-year.

After playing Assassin's Creed, I'm really looking forward to Mirror's Edge, I really hope, that it's gonna handle ok on PC.

I'll also try Far Cry 2, and Left 4 Dead.

No one mentioned Half-life 2 Episode 3.

I'm going to assume that you think that choice should be obvious, and thats why you didn't list it.

If not, then shame on you! :nya:

I'll play world at war, I don't expect too much out of it though.

I'm looking forward to Far cry 2, left 4 dead, and HL2 E3. (Is the release date still TBA?)
Posted 13 years ago2008-10-14 06:39:38 UTC Post #257039
You won't see Episode Three for at least a year.

Far Cry 2, Fallout 3, The Elder Scrolls V(whenever that's going to happen), and, of course, Half-Life Episode 3 :P

[Edit] And Dead Space.

Woah hotdog. Console fanboy much?

GoW2 and Killzone 2 look mediocre at best and Deadspace, well the only thing I've seen of that is a full center spread magazine ad. No screens, no info, just the name and EA's logo. On those terms, I'm willing to wager that it will be shite.

Far Cry 2 - It has been described as the most immersive FPS yet and with an open-world environment and an adaptive story line. I want in. I'll have to fork out ?660 just to get the PC to run it. Money well spent.

Left 4 Dead - I loved playing BrainBread with Huntey and Tosse so this should be 10 times more awesome.

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway (PC Release) - WW2 games need to be more story driven rather than the over the top American killfest that is Call of Duty. Looking forward to this a lot having loved the previous games.

HL2:Episode 3 - I've seen a few concepts but nothing special so far. I just want the next part of the story.

Duke Nukem Forever - Ok so this is in no way a serious WANT. I just think that after waiting over 12 years for this so far. Having watched the trailers around the time I was playing Quake 2 I might as well buy it for the sake of my inner child.

The thread is about games in the upcoming months, not games in the upcoming 3 years...I don't think Portal 2, EP3, Deus Ex 3, DNF, etc. are going to be out by Christmas XD

And urban, you shouldn't judge Dead Space because you haven't seen much advertisement for it - there are tons of videos out there, watch one, and then you will KNOW that it looks pretty crap.

Also potatis: postal? ewww. postal games ruin the reputation of video games by being so epically shit.

I don't think Postal 2 (only Postal games I have played are P2, P2StP & P2AW) is the best game ever, but I like it.
What it would need is a real story, more action, more realism and less tunnels of massive wait - I hope Postal 3 will have all that.
The only games I have ever heard of that's ruining the reputation of other games are the GTA 3D games. Why don't people like Postal?

Fallout 3

Far Cry 2 - I'll 'get' it for PC, but I'm gonna borrow it from my friend for PS3. I know it's gonna suck because it's an FPS on a console, but FFS my computer will never handle it. I guess I could play it on my brother's, though. (I want to play this. Badly)

The only other game:

Left 4 Dead - I don't "OMGIWANTTHIS" game, but I'm getting it because it's by Valve. Valve is made of win and god. I'm gonna trust their judgments.

I'll also 'get' Mirror's Edge just to try it out, too.

Mirror's edge for PC is delayed until January ;( Somehow they think that it'll reduce piracy. EA are weird.

From EA? Download for sure.
Posted 13 years ago2008-10-14 16:03:57 UTC Post #257070
In a piracy sense, it makes a lot more sense to release it right before christmas :/

After christmas in January, noone will have any money to spend and everyone will pirate it

OH NO! Not another WoW expansion!
WoW people should play Tibia instead - it sucks more than WoW but it doesn't ruin your life.
Or even better - play Big Rigs - at least it looks almost OK.

Is Tibia a disease? =/ sure sounds like it

"guys, i went to the doctor, and he said i've contracted Tibia... D'="

urg.. wow

The only thing that is hot on my list is gears 2, which is being released on my birthday. :D

Thanks epic!

Looking very forward to halo3 recon and L4D though.

Anyone who looks forward to a Halo game must be a virgin.

GoW2 looks...well...exactly like the first game. Pfft, consoles are a joke. All they do is cause arguments. I own a 360 and right now I am not looking forward to any of its upcoming games. As for the whole 'PS3 is more powerful' argument, who gives a fuck. All those games are bullshit too.

Hey, you forgot to bash the Wii too........
Posted 13 years ago2008-10-15 08:24:41 UTC Post #257110
The Wii has no decent games. (This coming from a Wii owner and Nintendo fan :( )

@urb: I'd say that if you're looking forward to a Halo game, you can be whatever the fuck you want, but you probably haven't played any good games to realise how crappy Halo actually is.

Gears of War is fun. Nothing amazingly stand-out, but fun nonetheless.

If you loved the old games you will shit your pants when you play this one, thats for sure.
It's awesome. And I wasn't very fond of the older games, I thought they were a bit too repetitive, but the new squad types compensates the repetitivnes.

Games I've been looking forward to this year:

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear sky - Bought it, and it was awesome
Brothers In Arms Hell's Highway - Bought it, and it was awesome
Red Alert 3 - Pre booked
Call of Duty 5 - I WANT IT but I don't have the money
Left 4 Dead - Pre booked
Dead Space - Do want! I love horror games.
F.E.A.R. 2 - Do want! I love horror games.
Far Cry 2 - Money plox

I'm looking forward to Fez, Braid (PC version) and Half-Life 2: Episode 3. That's about it. I mostly play indie games nowadays: many are either free or cheap and there's some great games out there. :)
Posted 13 years ago2008-10-15 13:09:06 UTC Post #257123
Left 4 Dead: why? Because it looks awesome, and I think there's going to be a large SDK update and episode 3 news

Project Origin
They bought the rights, so it's now officially FEAR 2 ;)
I guess Sierra realized that their wannabe fear games was shit and there was no point in continuing.

I will "buy" GTA 4 for PC when it's out, but I don't expect it to be good. It's probably as crap as the other GTA 3D games.

Never played it, don't have an Xbox or a PS3. I'm buying an Xbox soon tho, and I'll download the demo (there is a GTA 4 demo right?) and see if it's any fun.
Posted 13 years ago2008-10-15 19:45:55 UTC Post #257151
I dont think there is a demo, no.

It doesn't really make sense to make a demo either, as GTA 4 is pretty large. It's a massive city afterall.. You couldn't release a small section of the city because it likely wouldn't work out to be a playable demo. At the same time they aren't going to release an entire island because the amount of work and detail put into it was worth too much effort and time to place onto a 'free' demo. It's probably pretty damned large to download too ;o
