New PC Games

Postby zepherin » Fri Feb 05, 2010 7:28 pm

Now that I have a PC with some oomph, I am looking for New PC games coming over the horizon that I might be interested in. I ordered ME2 and it should meet me there, but I will have run out of games to play for my PC after that, luckily I still have a couple 360 games I haven't gotten too.

So I'm looking for some new games coming out recently. RPGs and Tactical Turn based games are my favorite. If the RTS is great I like RTS. I like stealth FPSs ok and FPSs in the way Mass Effect, KOTOR, Fallout 3 are FPSs.

No MMOs I can't put in the time necessary to do an MMO

RTS, get Dawn of War II... DO EET
As for shooters. I'd recommend Modern Warfare 2. Or even better, Bad Company 2.

also, I'd like to point out that KOTOR was in no way a FPS. But thats just me, nitpicking

Wait for Rise of Chaos for DoWII.
There will be a deal of sorts.
I guarantee it.

Try Dragon Age, I heard the PC version is quite better, than the console. The gameplay is a little more sophisticated. I only played the PC version, and I love it. :)

RTS, get Empire: Total War. It is the pinnacle of PC gaming.

If you already got Half-Life 2, you should look into some mods, some of them are really spectacular.

Research and Development was really great.

In fact, if you get a PC game, just look it up if they have any mods. Most of them are total shit, but there are always a few stand-out ones.

I still need to get DoWII. It's been on my spot list for awhile now, but damnit there's just too many other good games out. I just now pre-ordered AvP, which I'm hoping the single player to be absolutely kickass at the very least.

even if AvP is going to suck, I'm still getting it. I'm an Alien fanboy (although the Predator is nice to I guess).
But I've seen gameplay vids, and it's pretty bad D:

I did play a bit of AvP and it was ok, but for me a FPS has to be fantastic and stand out in some way. I have just higher standards in that area, whereas an RPG can be middle of the road and I am all over playing it.

Yeah, opposite for me. I have higher standards when it comes to RPGs and less when it comes to FPS (lets get real, there are very very few FPS games with a great story. They're getting better though).

I hope you're getting it on Steam.. please tell me you are. I want more people to play with. Also, the demo sucks because it's FFA and I'm willing to bet 75% of the playerbase will stay away from FFA mode. I'll most likely be playing Horde mode, taking on waves of Xenos. Also, you get AVP for the single player, not the multi really, and the single player rocks from everything I've seen.

Ones coming out? Diablo 3 if you like that sort of game. Bioshock 2 is out I think?

New STALKER is out, though just like the others it's really STALKER Vx.0 (3.0 at this stage). Oodles better, but really should have been a content pack. Napoleon: Total War is coming out too.

I dunno, I'm looking at games released recently or to be released this year and I'm just not being wowed. ME2 was it. I was never really fond of SC or Diablo, so I'm not seeing the hugeness of them and there's a couple neat looking console games (Alan Wake looks cool) but nothing on that front.

Suggestion: Go back and play any games you missed in 2009 :D

American Mcgee's Alice. I used to watch my mom play it when I was a little little kid. Now that I think about it, that explains a lot.

I totally agree with this, the graphics are so fine and the experience is to die for.

Oh and Total War Shogun 2 is great too, because it has a mix Land & Naval Battle now, cooler assassination videos, much more define graphics, medieval japan, and oh, the fog of war is much better too, the battle sequences are way too awesome to be called just awesome.

V: Yes.

Oh and please read my first literature post. Feel free to bash me and whatnot...:D

If you like the total war series it is pretty good, they made some changes so you may want to grab a demo or pirate it first before actually spending any money.

Yeah, pirating it first is good cause if you buy the original too soon and you somehow don't like the gameplay, then you just threw away a lot of money...
