I'm looking forward to:

Spore, Red Alert 3, Half Life 2: Episode3, Tiberium, Diablo 3, StarCraft 2, Dawn of War 2, Bioshock 2, Legendary, Demigods. That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Downloadables would be KoTOR TSL Restoration Project. Hopefully by the end of this year it'll be done.

Here's to hoping for a KoTOR 3.

the Sins of a Solar Empire addon (if it's got that announced single player story mode)
First I've heard of it. It is relevant to my interests!

thier is quiet a range of space game on their way out this year more then ive seen for a while. i hope they aren't as dull as SOASE.
Sins isn't dull. Its a fun game. The games just tend to drag on, but that's what makes the game epic.

Not terribly original:

-HL2:Ep3
-Spore
-Starcraft 2
-RA3
-DX3 (as long as they don't kill it with another console port; while DX2 wasn't bad, it nowhere near lived up to the potential of the original).

Also interested in seeing what Irrational/2K dreams up in the future.  SS2 is probably my favorite game of all time, and thus far I'm fairly impressed with Bioshock but also disappointed that they've dropped many of the RPG elements I loved in both SS2 and DX.  Running around collecting cybermodules/skill points and upgrading the character's abilities was a great deal of fun.

Frankly, I'd like to see a third System Shock game to tie up the franchise but which retains most of the character development of SS2 before I'd want another Bioshock-style game.

if you say so stormkeeper.

mp-ryan i am also looking forward to if their is another system shock title also. i want to know what happened to the hacker and his creation, shodan and her organic monstrosities.

ea have the rights on ss3 so i hope they get it right, system shock 2 is a great game indeed and i dont want to see that title destroyed by ea's normal bug ridden development and typically poor storyline works. according to wiki the ea team has put the team that did the godfather game on the system shock game and that was over 2 years ago. nothing hs been seen since however i am unsure on that point.

Right now I'm somewhat idly looking forwards to Fallout 3, and insanely enthusiastically looking forwards to Dawn of War 2.

That is the best first post I have ever seen.

Sins is no Nexus but still a nice Space 4X. Just more diplomacy aspects, more tactical options in combat and a single player campaign and it would be timeless.

Deus Ex.
There's a 3rd Deus Ex in the works, but not much info has been released yet.

My friend told me that if you look at Bioware's financial reports, apparantly there's a KoTOR 3 on that list. I'm looking atm, but its a bit hard to find their reports.

well it's confirmed that there will be a MMORPG in Kotor setting. However it's unsure if this is a Kotor Online or the actual Kotor 3 (PLEASE, NO!!!)

If its a KoTOR MMO, I might just take a little demo. But I doubt I'll play it long term. Or just on private servers perhaps.

im not sure the newer games are that good but i hope one day to play :-

sins of a solar empire and spore.

i dont think diablo 3 and sc2 are going  to be that revolutionary. how much more can you add to those genres anyway? I much prefer going back to older games which were once buggy on release but which have been patched up beautifully and work like a charm :-

nexus jupiter incident (ok still being patched)
vampire masquerade (especially Redemption)
Dungeon Lords -- this is fully patched and works now and its really like Elder Scrolls Oblivion running on a low spec machine (very nice gfx).
Fable - yea now it should be cheap to get, great game.
Fate by Wildtangent - the bext diablo clone so far. better than diablo really.

so lots of great games still in the older category. newer ones all bound to be buggy.

I heard that Transport Tycoon was quite well-received.

Bah, that's an old game anyway. Take it to the Revisiting Old Games thread.

Who's waiting for Silent Threat: Reborn? Goober's just posted in Announcements.

oh god, Spore sucks. I knew it was primitive outside the editor but this is just boring, together with non-meaningful choices and a horrible interface. Crap, one good idea in ruins AGAIN  :mad2:
