Your most anticipated game(s)

Post by duuk74 » Sun Dec 28, 2008 4:54 pm

I thought it would be fun to have a thread where people listed the games they were keeping an eye on. Perhaps with a short description and a link to the game page

Being an rpg/strategy sucker, my list goes like this:

Arcania: A Gothic Tale

I never tried any of the previous Gothic games, but i've heard good things about them.
It's not a game i'm totally stoked about, but it shows promise, and i will keep an eye out for it.

Next up is Battlefield Heroes ... al-movie-2
This free to play TF2 look-alike multiplayer shooter looks like it could be lots of fun

Blood Bowl ... ler-1?hd=1

This is one of the games im looking forward to the most. A turnbased (or real time if you wish) hybrid of sports, manager and strategy. I've made a much more detailed thread about it elsewhere on this forum.

Dragon Age: Origins

Another one of my "most anticipated" games. This RPG should be the spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate series. I really have high expectations for this game, after the good (but not great) Neverwinter Nights games.

Elemental: War Of Magic ... index.html

From what i gather this will be a bit like the Total War games, only in fantasy settings.

Disciples III ... index.html

A fantasy turn based game, a bit like HOMM. I tried one of the earlier Disciples games, but i found it lacking. Perhaps this one will add some complexity to the combat.

Majesty 2 ... al-trailer

Majesty was an unique fantasy rts/sim that gained a cult following. The game felt almost like a fantasy kingdom simulator, in that you didn't have absolute control over you units. You would have to motivate your heroes into doing the desired tasks.
For example you'd have to place bounties on monsters, in order for your heroes to hunt them down. Majesty was loads of fun, and Majesty 2 looks like it will follow that same formula.

Dungeon Hero ... vie-1?hd=1
I don't care much about the Gamecock antics (Gamecock LOL!), but Dungeon Hero looks interesting.
The premise of the game is to make "realistic" dungeons and depict the daily lives of the monsters dwelling in them.

From the game page:

If you stroll into any old video game dungeon these days, odds are you will find a clutch of monsters lurking around a treasure chest, spoiling for a fight. When it started in on its new action game Dungeon Hero, developer Firefly Studios wondered, "Why are they there?" To answer that question, it's creating a gameworld that features a fleshed-out society where merchant, soldier, and vagrant goblins go about their daily business instead of merely loitering about

That's it for me. Now you

Empire Total War... I'll buy it, play it, lose several days, then have to ban myself from playing it again for my own good.

Terranigma Remake
and Chrono Trigger DS!
Also Dragon Age is something I'm HOPING will be good, but to be honest Bioware's quality has dropped a bit in my opinion, so I'm not going to get too giddy about it

and of course, Dungeon Keeper 3!
If they ever decide to make it that is..
Who holds the IP for it anyway?
