What to look forward to in 2009/ end of 08

There are a lot of games that will be coming out in 2009/end of 08 for PC gamers to look forward to. As this year's E3 companies such as Activision-Blizzard revealed their latest offerings for the PC gamer and while it may not be the bonanza it was in years passed there is still much to gossip about.

Here are some of the top games being released in 2009/ end of 08:

  • Rise of the Argonauts - Focusing on Greek myths, this offering from Liquid Entertainment promises to bring in characters and creatures from the most popular Greek myths and presents them in a format that allows for fast-paced combat and rich storytelling.

  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - This time around, the conflict escalates as the Empire of the Rising Sun enters the fray. With an entirely new faction, the game promises to be even more exciting and satisfying than any Red Alert title to date.

  • Crysis Warhead - Don the nanosuit of Sergeant Sykes, aka “Psycho, " and experience a storyline parallel to the events of the original game.

  • Left 4 Dead - Using the Counter-Strike Source Engine, Left 4 Dead has a group of four unlikely heroes band together to battle hordes of infected.

  • S. T. A. L. K. E. R: Clear Sky - Clear Sky is the prequel to S. T. A. L. K. E. R. : Shadow of Chernobyl and takes place a year earlier, when the unstable Zone is causing anomalous activity galore.

  • Alpha Protocol - Sega and Obsidian are reteaming for this role-playing game that eschews sci-fi and fantasy for a Bourne Identity-like world of high-tech espionage.

  • Spore - Spore is a simulation game created by Will Wright that allows players to control various life forms from the cellular to the galactic level.

  • Far Cry 2 - The sequel to the much-acclaimed island shooter aims to make a big splash in 2008.

  • Empire: Total War 3 - The Total War series takes to the seas with 3D naval combat in this 18th century strategy game.

  • Fallout 3 - After being cancelled at Interplay, this sequel to the cult post apocalyptic role-playing game was resurrected by Bethesda, where it is currently in development.

    For me left for dead appears to be very promising as it has my all favourite mode of all time - COOP! The thought of battling it out with hundreds of monsters with friends is a very promising prospect. Coupled with the fact that it is being produced with the source engine makes this the highlight of E3 for me.

    Crysis warhead will also have high expectations considering how much of a success its predecessor was. It will be interesting to see how Far Cry 2 compares to this title in terms of graphics and game play considering Crysis was supposed to be a sequel to far cry in the first place.

    I will also be looking forward to Empire: Total War 3 as I always find this genre of PC game very enjoyable as well as the extra challenge that will come with 3D naval combat.
