  1. Demigod
  2. Spore
  3. GhostBusters
  4. Aliens: Colonial Marines
  5. C&C: Red Alert 3

There are quite a few more, but I just can't think of the names right now.

1. Spore (Pre-ordered - 09/05/2008 in Brazil!)
2. Demigod (Pre-ordered from Impulse)
3. C&C: Red Alert 3 (Got in the 3rd wave, downloading beta multiplayer, yeah!)
4. Space Siege (Wanting to know if it will be released here, in Brazil)

Else, just wanting that someday they'll releases new games from my favorite franchises, like

Age of Empires 4, Homeworld 3, Deus Ex 3, and maybe others... And also, any new game from Gas

Powered Games, their games ROCK!

Civilization IV: Colonization (preview)

Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization (summary)

It appears that Sid has been busy again!

Civilization IV: Colonization is being released next month and deserves closer scrutiny.

Although in the past I've enjoyed playing Civ I and II (skipped III), Civ IV didn't attract my attention for some reason and I must have clued out on the original Colonization (it must have been overshadowed by something else at the time).

I think it's a standalone game if I'm informed correctly (not an expansion for Civ IV) and is a remake of the original done some years ago.

This one almost flew under my radar... I'll be checking out the reviews for it (release date: Sept. 22, 2008).

X3 - Terran Conflict (a year or so after release)

Woot! I wouldn't wait a year, Egosoft has (hopefully) learned their lesson since the X3 Reunion fiasco.

Right now, thats the only game I'm looking forward to right now.

DemiGod over all other titles out there. I just see soo much innovation there, and the rare co-op  mode is just what gamers love. I never understood a lot of publishers leaving this one multiplayer option out. The first thing people ask about multiplayer is if its got Co-op. That should be a hint that its a very much requested feature. DemiGod is on the front of the list of my next buys.

 

X:3's addon sounds good, but I dont think they learned to finish a product before you release it, and I wont buy anything without finding out what DRM they are using, who knows, it may be SecuRom with activation limits this time instead of Starforce. The first sign Ive seen is they refuse to acknowledge they have non standard codecs. They refuse to even address it, so to me, its like they learned nothing at all. This is a wait and see title for me, actually all PC games that are non Stardock are wait and see's now. Its a scary world out there with the guessing games with DRMs.

X3 Terran Conflict isn't an add on, it's a whole separate game that uses an updated version of the X3 engine, so it technically isn't the same game. About what you said about DRM, Egosoft (X3's dev team) removed Starforce because they found out how it was. I've also heard that they knew about the Spore fiasco (BIG MISTAKE, EA!!!) so I don't think they will use DRM, or at least one that doesn't destroy your system (Starforce) or install spyware (SecuRom). Really looking forward to X3 TC, even though there STILL isn't word about a U.S. publisher (Egosoft is really reluctant to give details). Hopefully it will revitalize the space sim genre. It looks like an amazing game.

As for Spore, you have to admit that there was WAY to much hype. Many gamers are really disappointed. I mean, EA says that it will redefine PC games, so a lot of hype builds up, and then they annouce SecuRom will install with it, and THEN gamers find out that it's not what the hype says. EA basically shot itself in the foot with SecuRom. Putting something like that on a major title is practically begging pirates to do their dirty work. 500,000 illegal downloads and counting!

Oh and I'm looking forward to Cities XL.
