I noticed there are lots of big name heavy hitting Real Time Strategy games coming out during next 12 months:
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 by Electronic Arts LA
I have always enjoyed RA games over vanilla C&C games. Besides a game which has armored polar bears with parachutes can not possibly be bad. Sea warfare is the name of the game and it will have a new faction to play with: Empire of Rising Sun, practically Japanese. There should be a public beta test this Summer (for those who has bought Kane's Wrath, that is ).
Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War 2 by Relic Entertainment
It's a Relic game so it's pretty much guaranteed to be great. We don't know much about the game itself yet but it's probably more like Company of Heroes than Daw of War 1. Space Marines and Orks are in, two other factions are still unknown.
Halo Wars by Ensemble Studios
Build from ground up for a console. I'm willing to give it the benefit of doubt as people of Ensemble Studios should know what they are doing. The story follows early battles between UNSC and the Covenant. I dunno if Master Chief is in or not.
StarCraft II by Blizzard Entertainment
I don't think there's much to say about this one. Lots of things has changed in 10 years but it's still "StarCraft" with "II" and it still has lovely Queen Bitch of the Universe. I'm really looking forward the singleplayer portion of this even though it doesn't have Co-op play of RA3 or DoW2.
Demigod by Gas Powered Games
No, no it's not Shadow of the Colossus 2. It's basicly a high end version of DoTa which just happens to hate your computer. I still haven't actually played GPG's Supreme Commander, I will pick it up in one of these days even though just a mere demo of that game was almost (but not quite) too much for my laptop.
I will buy of all these of course, I don't like missing out, but are you going to buy any of these?
