Hold on tight, an avalanche of games is coming

Yes, that’s right, an avalanche. The holidays season is near and all the cool games are rounded up for release. These are the most important titles scheduled to be released in the next months.

September

Lego Batman. After Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones it’s Batman’s turn to blend with Lego. This game has a big potential because there are a lot of different and interesting characters in Batman’s universe compared to Indiana Jones.

Sacred 2: Fallen Angels. Sacred was a good game. Let’s hope Sacred 2 won’t disappoint the fans. This will make the long, long wait for Diablo 3 more bearable .

Silent Hill: Homecoming. Yes, it’s coming on the PC too. Silent Hill is one of the scariest games ever. Superb atmosphere, grotesque monsters…what can I say…I can’t wait to be scared.

October

Battlefield Heroes. The new shooter from the creators of the Battlefield series is expected to be released this month. The cartoon style graphics looks great, …and the best part of this game is that….it’s FREE.

Quake Live. Quake 3 is reborn in Quake Live, the new shooter from ID Software. It will run in your browser, it has better graphics, very good multiplayer support….it’s going to be GREAT…if they would just release it already.

Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway. What I liked in the first game was that all the locations were made after real maps and photos. This time it will be better and more realistic.

21-28 October. This is a nice week indeed. Long awaited games will finally be in the hands of gamers everywhere. Tuesday 21 October, Far Cry 2 will be released. I can’t wait to see Africa created with the Dunia engine.

26 October. The new Guitar Hero: World Tour will introduce the drums and mike to create a more complete experience. This time you will be able to record your own songs using the instruments…sweet.

28 October, a sweet day …I can taste it. 2 Uber Games will be released in the same day. The long awaited postapocalyptic role-playing game, Fallout 3 and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3.

November

11 Nov. Call of Duty: World at War. The producers take the franchise back to World War II. I have no doubt that this is a must have. Who has played Call of Duty 4 knows what I’m talking about.

11 Nov. Mirror’s Edge. This first person parkour (free running) action adventure game seems real nice. It’s a breath of fresh air, has a realistic, brightly-colored style and the girl on the cover is cute…so keep an eye out.

13 Nov. World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. The new expansion for the behemoth that is World of Warcraft opens the frozen Northrend to players.

17 Nov. Need for Speed Undercover. It’s November so it’s inevitable that a new NFS will eat some GB’s on our hard disks,…or not. I hope all the fun ingredients of the NFS series will be back..

18 Nov. Grand Theft Auto IV. It’s not a new game, but for most PC users who hate consoles it is. We will see GTA IV unleashed (better graphic that will run over 25-30 fps like on PS3 or Xbox360 ). Liberty City here I come.

18 Nov. Tomb Raider Underworld. The last 2 Tomb Raider games were pretty good and all the signs point that Underworld won’t disappoint, and I’m not going to miss the chance to see Lara in her new wet suit.

December

The new Prince of Persia will make his appearance this December…but I have my doubts .

2007 was declared the best year for new releases ever. We’ll live and see if 2008 will be the new no 1. Either way I like where this is going.
