Games Coming Out March 2011 For PC Computers by Honorabili
Okay, so I’m a little bit behind putting my list together, not only because we have been making more websites and making some special content for Obsolete Gamer but also because I have been playing a shitload of new games!
Well… here is the list of stuff that caught my eye in the world of PC gaming for March 2011:
Warhammer 40K Dawn of War 2: Retribution – March 1 2011
This is the last expansion that will ever come out for Dawn of War 2. Last year when this was announced, Relic announced at the same time that they are already working on Dawn of War 3 which should probably come out a year later. They have a tendency to release Dawn of War games in March. I’ve already been playing DoW2:Retribution and I even beat it already. For $30 on Steam, it’s still worth getting although the campaign is rather short and repetitive but the killing is fun as always. A MUST for all serious lovers of the Warhammer 40k universe.
Rift – March 1 2011
A lot of people I know are trying out this MMO but then again a lot of people I know want to play this game and won’t because it uses the system where you buy the game AND have a subscription system per month. Only Blizzard can pull off with World of Warcraft only. Myself, I will only try this game if I get a free copy or it goes free to play. The difference between this MMO and others is that the world changes randomly, keeping it replayable more.
Dinner Date – March 1 2011
This game looks like it has dated graphics but I put it on here because I simply hope if you do pick it up if you’ll tell me if at the end of the date your character gets to sleep with the girl you invited to your rape-den. OH WAIT… WHATTTTTTTTT?
Sonic Adventure DX – March 4 2011
Although people started to HATE Sonic when Sega started making these games 3D, it’s still good once in a while to play a quick game. Since this is an old Dreamcast game and many people might not have that system anymore but miss it, it’s not too bad to pick it up for close to 8 dollars on Steam but then again you might want to play the 2D Sonic games instead.
Space Channel 5: Part 2 – March 4 2011
This is a classic dancing game, again from the Sega Dreamcast. Worth picking up if you are feeling nostalgic and were a a fan of it.
Crazy Taxi – March 4 2011
Although Grand Theft Auto took off more than Crazy Taxi in the long run, it was a highly popular game for many years in the arcade scene. A fun game if you like driving like an asshole in real life and want to race around in an immortal car. I wish you could kill people like Carmageddon but hey life is not perfect.
Dragon Age 2 – March 8 2011
Most people hail Dragon Age 1 as a classic RPG game that added a whole level of drama to RPGs but I found too many flaws with it. Not only bugs that made me uninstall the game. These are such things as the AI being so retarded that I have to micro manage my characters every 1-2 seconds, ruining the action, but simply idiotic things like them not having the common sense to not stand in open flames, getting killed immediately. Oh, the game also had people you met that you talked with and after 5 minutes of real life dialogue they will then try to get you to do a quest which is ONLY available by DLC. I thought that was such as scummy business move that I will never play that shit ever again nor buy another Dragon Age game.
Well, fans of this franchise will be creaming their pants as Dragon Age 2 is now out and should fill their RPG needs. As much as I now hate this franchise, I’d rather see somebody playing this than an MMO any day.
The Settlers 7 Paths to a Kingdom: Deluxe Gold Edition – March 10 2011
This edition comes with exclusive maps, all the DLC, and pretty much everything that’s been released for this game. The Settlers is a great series of city building and war making games that are really popular in Europe especially. If you never played one, pick it up and give it a try. You will learn quickly why this is the seventh incarnation of this game series and will quickly get addicted to these computer game classics.
Homefront – March 14 2011
I am rushing to beat Dead Space 2 and destroy all other aspects of Dow2:Retribution so that I can dig into this game. It makes me think of the movie Red Dawn a lot and that’s a good thing to me. I would probably go out on a limb and out of this whole list say that this is the “must buy” title this month.
Total War: Shogun 2 – March 15 2011
Going back to its roots, Total War: Shogun is what made the Total War series a classic. I give them props for updating the game with a sequel as the original Total War: Shogun has been showing its age now for many years. Worth checking out if you are a big fan of massive war games.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – March 22 2011
I can’t really complain about Ubisoft’s draconian login copy protection system as this game actually requires it to authenticate for you to play online. If you are a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed series then you will want to get this one, especially since you can fight other assassins and it continues the storyline further but it’s already been out on console for a while so chances are that you already have it there plus you don’t have to deal with the DRM situation that the PC version always brings.
Crysis 2 – March 22 2011
Since Far Cry, Crytek has been killing our systems with their amazing game engines that bring a new level of graphic realism to gaming. Time to bring out that credit card as here is a new installment to melt your GPU and CPU. I don’t expect much in the storyline department for a game like this, so I guess eventually I might try this out when I get a free copy of it bundled when I buy a new video card a year from now.
The Sims Medieval Limited Edition – March 22 2011
This seems like they are trying to make a Sims game that is a LOT like Europe The Guild (Europa 1400 The Guild and The Guild 2). Eh, I’d rather play those games instead. Electronic Arts already has enough money as it is and I’d rather support Jowood, especially since they made The Guild first and it IS one of the best games ever made (the first part ONLY).
Shift 2 Unleashed – March 22 2011
I have been unimpressed with EA racing games for a long while already but I will still end up playing this. Shift is basically EA’s attempt at trying to get people to play this from the Grand Turismo franchise and also from fans of Codemasters racing games (my personal favorite). Shift 1 came out, along the same lines as NFS Pro Street (which was sort of a failure for the Need For Speed franchise), and it tried too hard to be Grand Turismo, I thought. This game DOES look beautiful though, and it will probably require a super system to run super well.
Darkspore – March 29 2011
This game reminds me of Evolva so it might be good!
Dino D-Day – March 2011
This game is about you stopping NAZI DINOSAURS… Yeah, enough said. I had to add it to the list with a premise like that. Hey, it might end up being fun anyways so what do I know?
Well folks, there it is. A mega month for gaming on PC this March. Who knows when I will be able to catch up with my gaming again? Too many good releases! I have yet to make time to play some Bulletstorm or Hawx 2!
