What, if anything, are you looking forward to?
October 8th 2003, 21:09 CEST by FormerFlyGuy

I find myself utterly uninspired by any of the near-future offerings of games.  I guess Half-Life 2 is something I'll take a look at, but there are little things that I fully expect will be missing (like the ability to peek around a corner for example).

I'd love to see a good MP game.  One that wasn't set up for the members of the twitchy generation.  The only game that I've played recently that seemed to be like that was Operation Flashpoint.  Maybe I'm just getting old, but I can't play UT 2K3 (and I assume the next iteration of it) because it frankly is far too frantic for me.  I don't enjoy it.

I thought that the latest Rainbow Six would do it, but frankly, there are simply too many bugs to make it enjoyable, and once again, it is slanted towards the twitchers, and away from the people who, you know, try and use tactics.

Bleh, someone give me some good news on the gaming front.

Good news?  XIII is due soon, tomorrow according to IGN.  KOTOR should be on the PC next month IIRC, and after that DX2.  It's good that HL2 was delayed, I wouldn't have been able to play all these games.

XIII (though judging from the demo, I think I'll have played through that one before I know it), Max Payne 2.

When's Deus Ex 2 getting released?

How many it had cost in the amassing, what blood and sorrow, what good ships scuttled on the deep, what brave men walking the plank blindfold, what shot of cannon, what shame and lies and cruelty, perhaps no man alive could tell.

I have more games than I can really play right now, not to mention almost nightly rounds of Raven Shield with a bunch of friends. No complaints about quantity or quality here. I am working on being more cynical and bitter about people in general, though, so there's something.

I'm excited about Half-Life 2, DOOM 3, and Call of Duty (yes, the last two I have a vested interest in, but I'm genuinely anxious to play them). Those are really the only PC games I'm looking forward to right now. In general, I'm finding myself far more into my GBA than the PC at the moment, and currently almost done with the single player campaign of Advance Wars 2.

Sid Meier's Pirates!


Yeah this marks me as "so jaded, so cynical, so lonely" but I can't help but feeling this is bound to be a disappointment.  It is really difficult to leave something for a decade or more and then revisit it and live up to the expectations of the fans who are remembering the original through triple-strength rose colored glasses.  Just ask George Lucas.


Half-Life 2


Yeah, can't wait!


Call of Duty


Just what the world needs, another WWII shooter.  Yawn.


Knights of the Old Republic


Already played & finished it on the XBOX.  Wake me when/if any good mod content comes out of the PC version.  Judging by NWN, I won't hold my breath in the meantime.

Same, except for the almost done part.  I've found that Advance Wars is the ideal travelling game, because I get so caught up in the strategy that I don't notice my surroundings, and games as much as an hour.  WarioWare is a great game too but doesn't kill near as much time.  Since it takes about five hours to get from my house to my girlfriend's, this is an important feature.

In the past few years there have been other Pirates! type of games, so I hope Sid Meier and Firaxis can learn from those games (what worked and didn't work) when doing the remake of the old C64/Amiga/PC classic.

Just what the world needs, another WWII shooter.  Yawn.


I was hesitant about it since I was somewhat disappointed by Medal of Honour: Allied Assault (eg. sniper alley, no unifying plot to the mish-mash of missions across the different WW2 campaigns), but the demo won me over. Even though it was heavily scripted, I felt there was a bigger sense of teamwork with my AI teammates than other FPSes.

Already played & finished it on the XBOX.


I don't have an Xbox and from what I've read about the Xbox version I hope that PC version will be less buggy.

The XBOX version isn't quite as generally buggy as has been reported, in my experience.  However, there is one HUGE bug that can render the game unplayable/unfinishable without going back to previous save games and from what I've heard the bug doesn't manifest itself for like an hour after the event that spawns it.  So if anyone plays the xbox version, they'll want to be careful of that one.

I know I'm the corporate shill on this one, but what I like about Call of Duty is that the Russian side of the war is one side you'll play. I don't think we've seen that much, where you'll play a Russian soldier who gets put into battle just like the real ones did: no weapon, forced to find one from a dead body, and told you'll be shot if you run away.

Didn't we have this discussion before?

EA is an American company, founded in California but a native San Diegan (Trip "3D0" Hawkins).  They have developers in many countries, including Canada..  

They do *not* have "Canadian roots".

I'm looking forward to Deus Ex 2, on the single player side, and in the long, long term, I'm looking forward to Van Buren (Fallout 3).
On the multiplayer, UT2004 looks good, as does Quake 4/Quake 2 remake. Anything that gets people playing Quake 2 again is fine by me.

If the UT2000 series seems to twitchy for you, you are playing the wrong position.  You don't have to be the runner if it doesn't suit ya.  Grab the sniping weapon and find a strategic perch.  Do this correctly and you will influence the outcome of every game you play.  There's your tactics.

How much of the game is like that?  It might rekindle my interest a bit to play on other sides.  I'm tired of being american in those stupid games.
