Default Games thread!

Figured we needed a thread about video games since there are so many great titles on the horizon. To start:

Dead Space: i'll be picking this up tomorrow. Space survival horror? A_W_E_SO_M_E!

Next week:
LittleBigPlanet - game looks awesome. Platformer with crazy physics, a 3d place, and the ability to create some crazy levels of your own.

Fable II: This game will own. You have a fog and a musket. Nuff said!

So what are you looking forward too?

Left 4 Dead is on my must-buy list as a zombie genre freak.

Yep. have you tried the new Brothers in Arms game? It's another WW2 shooter, but your guy sucks at shooting. More tactical squad based stuff. Pin and flank, no super soldiers in that game lol.

Fallout 3 is on my horizon. Even if it's only 1/2 as good as 1 and 2 I'll be happy. Many days of my life lost playing those games.

The next COD for FPS...

Agreed, Fallout 3 is on my radar as well. Bethesda is making it, i'm sure it will be good.

Agreeded - they have high standards there - no release and let the buying public do the beta testing. Not that all games don't need some tweaking, but a polished version ought to hit the shelves.

Their games are always top notch. i'm not worried. Oblivion kept me occupied for a loooooong time

Also, coming next year, Empire: Total War. I'm a big fan of the total war series, been playing it since Shogun. Having watched a few trailers I hafta say this game looks fantastic. Mix of turn based empire building with RTS battles and for the first time ship combat!

I used to do RTS back in the Orc Craft and C&C days... But the click rush of grab the resources got old and a good player with Tanya could rule the game. If you like the turn based then try the Combat Mission games:

http://www.battlefront.com/

Replay isn't good but sometimes even knowing the scripted actions still isn't enough. I have yelled at the screen many a time when morale got low the my yelow cowards ran from the fight.
