New (PC) Games for 2007 (image heavy)!!

Recommended Posts

Since it's 2007 now, I felt we needed a games of 2007 thread, here's all of them...

Well,... maybe not all of them, but probably at least most of them...

(it's sure enough of them...)

(4 firsts posts reserved/in use)

 

 

------

 

This sort of puts everything in one place that can be expected to come out this next year, organized by genre, and with a short line of justification for thinking its notable enough to be mentioned.

 

And even though the OP is old, AdrianWerner has been editing it regularly, it is up to date.

"Below is a comprehensive list of all(at least I think so)promising PCgames slated for 2007 release.By "promising" I mean games with big chances of scoring at least AA, while extremely small chances of scoring below 7. I've tried choosing only games made by experienced developers(who made good games in the past) or for other reasons promising."

Wow. And you had the audacity not to pin this topic ::)

 

Well out of those games there are a few i'm looking forward too.

 

Supreame Commander - been waiting for this for AGES!!! I simply loved Total Annhilation (I have all the expansions and TA: Kingdoms - and it's expansion :D ) Can't wait for this one.

 

Another one i'm looking foward too (although wasn't aware was in development untill you posted it above) is Settlers VI. I played the last one (and it's expansion :P) and thought it was really good - with a great story to it as well. Interested to see how this one turns out.

 

Very nice list :)

With the release of Vista there's tentative (very) talks of a PC version, remember that Bioware said Jade Empire was Xbox only and TA-DAAAA PC version of that with enhancements over the console.

 

But shhhh

 

They could be watching.

 

Bioware would be nuts if they didn't port this to the PC to be honest, it's shaping up to be the best science fiction RPG of all time.

I can't wait for the new UT3..

 

With the Unreal Warfare added to it , it's clear that Epic intends to offer something for the more tactical gamer, with the Warfare mode focussing more on strategy, resource management and teamwork.

Also with the new Unreal Engine 3 with alot of games are using or going to use , it looks like this game will be great..

One game that I'm hyped about (that isn't in the list above) is Overlord. You play an evil fantasy overlord that commands imp-like minions and try to take over the world. I suspect all us Dungeon Keeper fans will love it.

I'm not much of a gamer but Dungeon Keeper was great, both of them (too bad 3 was canceled :'(), and this looks like it'll be awesome.

 

Thanks for the heads up. ;D

Bioware are lying SLAGS - the development costs of games are increasing. Compared to the port costs, it makes sense to release on all next-gen platforms AND the PC... it's merely the console producers that induce titles like Halo etc. to be monogamous.

 

I think Overlord is only similar to Dungeon Keeper in that - you're evil and have minions... it's FPS, Dungeon Keeper was a god/strategy. Still fun to play the bad guy.

 

Sins of a Solar Empire, Spore, Precursors and some others are all kicked to 2008.

The wife and I have been playing Overlord and it's a lot of fun, although aggravating at times. (I guess like all games can be from time to time.)

 

I wouldn't really call it a FPS, although it does have some elements of a FPS. It has elements of FPS, Strategy and a Roll Playing game all rolled into one.

 

It's not exactly like a sequel to Dungeon Keeper, but it's definitely the next generation of the game and just as fun, for me at least.

 

I've also been playing "The Witcher", so far i can't stand it, too much like Final Fantasy for my tastes. (Too much going on I guess, but I'll let you know more once I've finished Overlord and devote more time to The Witcher.)
