Games Coming Out In January 2011 For PC by Honorabili

Great! Finally some games I have been looking forward to are coming out! This 2011 *might* be a good year!

DC Universe Online, January 11 2011

This MMO might be really fun based on all the teasers and videos I saw of developers giving us details about it, but let’s see how it really is when it is live. I’ll probably wait for my friends to get this (Umar, ahem) and tell me how shitty or great it is. Still, it looks fun, so it might be worth it for you if you love the DC Universe, even if the game is just okay. I actually got excited about this one when the first teasers leaked and I don’t care too much about most MMOs that come out.

Venetica, January 11 2011

Something about this game, just based on the trailer makes me think it probably won’t do that well unless it has something really unique to it.

Spellforce 2: Faith in Destiny, January 12 2011

These RPG-RTS games are pretty good. Although this expansion is not made by Phenomic who make one of my favorite games Battleforge, this is still made by Jowood who makes a ton of sleeper games that are actually very, very good.

Deadspace 2, January 25 2011

The first Deadspace was scary and brilliant. It was the total spiritually real successor to System Shock 2. Although Bioshock copies its formula every single freaking time from System Shock 2, Deadspace actually added a whole new level of horror and gruesomeness to the desolation and hopelessness of being stuck alone in a ship full of raving things that want to kill you, chop you up into a thousand pieces, and eat you.

Two Worlds 2, January 25 2011

Part one for Two Worlds was a fun game, although many people said it was pretty generic. I found the combat in the first one actually a LOT more fun than Oblivion, a game a lot of people always compare this one to. Yeah, it was generic but if the gameplay is fun, what’s the problem? Let’s see if Two Worlds 2 caters more to the hipster fanboys that hated the first one. ;]

Games Coming Out For PC In October 2010 by Honorabili

Borderlands Game of the Year Edition, October 5 2010

I beat Borderlands the first day I got it and it became just a continuous grindfest to replay it over and over, so past the first week it just died to me. A lot of people that later played it say it got better with the DLC but I was never willing to pay for that. This pack includes all the DLC but I’m skeptical because they’re always developing DLC for games like this…

Tropico 3 Gold Edition, October 5 2010

This includes the original Tropico 3, which is totally worth owning, and the expansion Tropico 3: Absolute Power, which keeps adding replayability to this great game. El Presidente… the people, they love you! A game which lets you play the role of a dictator is always a lot of fun. 😀

Medal of Honor, October 12 2010

This looks like a Battlefield and Call of Duty (Modern Warfare) clone but hey we might not see anymore MW from the people who made MW1 and MW2 so it might be time to suck it up! Could be fun so long as the server system is well implemented. Click here to view the trailer for this game.

The Guild 2: Renaissance, October 14 2010

Europa 1400 The Guild is probably one of the best games ever made for PC but few people in the US know it. The Guild 2 was relatively weak compared to the original and it had a different set of bugs in it. However that may be, both the original Guild and the Guild 2 are two great games that involve you playing something like the Sims mixed with the diplomatic scheming that would make Machiavelli proud. This expansion adds more functionality (and often a patch as well) to the original game which is already a time vacuum, despite its problems.

Arcania: Gothic 4, October 12 2010

First off, Jowood made this which is a really good thing. The previous Gothic games have been praised by many of my gamer friends (the ones that I respect) as great RPGs. Nice to see this franchise is not dead.

Fallout: New Vegas, October 19 2010

I heard from people that this was made by some of the original people who made the first Fallout games and that’s a good thing. I still believe that Fallout should NEVER have become an FPS game (even with its LIGHT RPG ELEMENTS). The teaser videos make me think a lot of New Reno from Fallout 2 as well as Wasteland, what Fallout is based on. Let’s see…

Lego Universe MMO, October 26 2010

The good people from NetDevil made this MMO and it looks fun from the videos I’ve seen of it. Yeah, it might be a kid’s game but from my experience NetDevil puts out pretty good MMOs. Auto Assault is still my favorite MMO game of all time.

Well, that’s the list of stuff that I care to look at next month. Hopefully none of it will be a disappointment like Civilization 5 was (more on that soon).

The Good Old Games version includes the manuals (3), hi-res wallpapers, in-game soundtrack, artworks, and avatars.

5. FALLOUT (50% OFF) $2.99

Fallout 1 is a game that changed the ways computer RPGs were from that point on. This to me is a game that created a golden age for that genre.

The Good Old Games includes the manual (124 pages), hi-res wallpaper, Fallout series wallpaper, Fallout Bible (205 pages), reference card, in-game soundtrack, original soundtrack, artworks, avatars, and PipBoy avatars. So you get a LOT of Fallout for just $3.

6. GOTHIC 2: GOLD EDITION (50% OFF) $4.99

The Gothic series pack a lot of interesting RPG aspects as well as replayability. For some reason these games have become their own classic series from one of our favorite studios, Jowood.

The Good Old Games version includes manuals (78 pages), hi-res wallpapers, soundtrack, and avatars. Gothic 2: Gold Edition includes Gothic II and the expansion pack Gothic II: Night of the Raven.

7. HEROES OF MIGHT AND MAGIC® 3 (30% OFF) $6.99

The Good Old Games version includes manuals (209 pages), soundtrack, and creature tables. You get the original game as well as the two expansions, Armageddon’s Blade and The Shadow of Death.

8. MYST: MASTERPIECE EDITION (50% OFF) $2.99

If you like adventure games and you haven’t played Myst then I don’t know what to tell you…

The Good Old Games version includes the manual (17 pages).

9. RED BARON PACK (50% OFF) $4.99

People might think World War I is cheesy but flight combat was extreme back in that war. It was a test of pure skill. No bullshit computer to calculate a lock-on from a missile back then. Just the machine, your machine gun (if it worked) and your enemies.

Red Baron is probably one of the top flight combat sims of all time. If you love WWI stuff or flight combat, you need this game.

The Good Old Games version includes manuals (306 pages), maps, and reference cards. In this version you get Red Baron 1, the Red Baron: Mission Builder, and Red Baron 3D (a heavily patched version of Red Baron 2).

10. SIMON THE SORCERER (50% OFF) $2.99

A must for fans of the old Sierra and LucasArts adventure games, although this one was made by Adventure Soft.

The Good Old Games version includes the manual (7 pages), Simon the Sorcerer series wallpaper, as well as being able to pick between playing the subtitled and talking version of the game.
