Most Wanted Games Of 08/09

You all get the idea I'm sure, but just in case: This is basically a thread to post what games you just can't wait to get your hands on. Simple enough, eh?

Battlefield: Bad Company

One of the new features exclusive to Bad Company will be the addition of 90% destructible environments. Most of the terrain will be able to be destroyed, enabling players to create strategies with this new opportunity. For example, snipers might be able to blow away a corner of a building so that they could use that section as a place from which to fire. This does not mean that they are invincible, however. Vehicles such as tanks will have the firepower to destroy many of these buildings, encouraging the player to retreat and find another strategic point. Buildings are not fully destructible though, all but the frame of the building will be destructible. As seen in a short clip from a recent trailer, walls can also be destroyed by running in to them with vehicles. In addition to destructible buildings, in Bad Company you are able to destroy most vegetation, leaving debris on the ground. On the Frostbite Engine trailer it showed the dynamic lighting, which means if you blow a hole in the side of a building the shadow will change during the day cycle. The destruction has been shown off in developer commentary videos.

IGN Preview

My god, everything about this game looks amazing, the graphics, the destructible environments, the weapon models... Just everything looks like it will be fantastic. This is going to be THE shooter of 08/09. (Whenever it ends up coming out.)

Dark Sector

This is probably going to be the 3rd person action game that holds me over until RE5 comes around. Not much to say about it really, just that it looks great and I can't wait to play it.

Resident Evil 5

Click here for a bigger version.


Click here for a bigger version.

This is it, the sequel to the greatest action adventure game ever. Not much info has been released yet (T_T) but the screenshots look damn good, and theres no doubt in my mind that this will be as good if not better than RE4.

Borderlands

500,000 guns. 'nuff said, I'm buying it...

Not convinced? Here: IGN Borderlands First Look

Those are all the big ones for me. =]

Re: Most Wanted Games Of 08/09

^ I think most people will be posting Brawl :p

I can't wait to play Mario Kart Wii, though I really can't elaborate since there isn't much news on the game yet.

Re: Most Wanted Games Of 08/09

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Grand Theft Auto IV, Resident Evil 5, Super Smash Bros., and possibly Mario Kart. I don't know about the last one; there's no way in hell I'm going to go out and pick up extra fairy sticks to play the game.

Re: Most Wanted Games Of 08/09

I really can't say Brawl? Bah.

Spore: I used to be following this game, then lost track of it for a while... Now it's coming for the Wii?! That's crazy! Now I can finally play the game (hint: my computer can't even play Black & White. Only just pulled out Red Alert 2 and GTA: Vice City)... In TBD. Then again, Spore on the DS sounds nice as well, and comes out 5 September. Release dates are nice.

No More Heroes: I want this game to come out in Europe already. Come on, you guys. Killing people with beamswords is really frickin' awesome, blood or no blood. (February 29)

Mario Kart Wii: Need I say more?

Golden Sun 3: Okay, so, it's not announced yet. But Camelot wants to make it, there's a new continent ready to be explored, and Nintendo wants them to make it. So... What the hell are they waiting for?

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn **** you guys, it's not out here yet. D: (March 14)

I might also look into:

The second Advance Wars on DS.
Battalion Wars 2.
MegaMan ZX Advent.
And when they finally announce Star Fox Wii and a new Kirby game, I'll be looking into that too.

You'll want to pass on that one. It's not too great of a game.

Re: Most Wanted Games Of 08/09

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Wii Music
Animal Crossing Wii

That's it.

If these games are released in the two years than I'd say them, too, but I doubt they will be.

Golden Sun 3
The Legend of Zelda Wii
Kingdom Hearts III

Re: Most Wanted Games Of 08/09

LOL @ BAD COMPANY.

A BF game is not worth my money without jets. And I don't think that the franchise works on a console. DICE proved it with the most half-assed attempt I've ever seen with BF2:MC. The jet controls may be clunky, I don't think it would be possible to even fly a helicopter on a controller. None of the menus, commander options, maps, or squads would work the same way, and Battlefield without those is a completely different game. Not saying it's a bad game, but just not a Battlefield game.

Other than that, I'm looking forward to RE5, GTA4, and that's it. I've not heard of anything else.

@Andy: This is clearly not a half assed attempt, this is a game that they have obviously put a lot of work into. =\

Still. It's not a true Battlefield game. Without the jets, the gigantic maps, or the 64-player cap, it's just not worth getting in opinion, basically, all the core gameplay is removed. It's similar to a Mario spinoff.

Re: Most Wanted Games Of 08/09

G'head. You've not been a fan of the BF franchise for three years now, and haven't been dissappointed by the pile of muck known as 2142.

I'm boycotting the game regardless of its amazingness.

Plus all that other crap I talked about.

Re: Most Wanted Games Of 08/09

While I would love to see jets (It sounds amazing), 64 players, and massive maps, I think that destructible environments will more than make up for it.
