1946 was the only noteworthy thing to release in years (Crysis wasn't all that great, I preferred Far Cry). Now 2008 looks like it could be a bananza:

Storm of War: Battle of Britain
PT-Boats: Knights of the Sea
Knights of the Sky
Cryostasis
Jet Thunder
777 untitled project
Project Galba?

With all the time I spent playing FB in the last 4 years, where the heck will I find time to gobble all these goodies if they come out this year? Loosen your belts for the digital buffet!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

If I only could share your juvenile optimism that all these games will be released this year. We can be LUCKY if one or two hit the shelves before christmas.

I just hope that BlackShark will make it in 2008 and I really, really hope people will buy that sim so the AH64 and A10 sims to follow won't be cancelled.

I'm looking forward to about half those on that list, but I find it difficult to get too excited about any of them right now. Maybe in another 3-4 months.

I have been following PT Boats for several years now. I have heard that they removed some of the features or turned it into more of an arcade game than a sim. Is this true? In any case, I would still like to see this released sometime this decade, as well as a couple others on that list.
Storm of War? Of course. Why else would I be in this forum, right?
Knights of the Sky? Yeah. That one would be nice as well. There is nothing like the kind of dogfight where you have to get close and use your skill to bring your guns on your adversary. The WW1 dogfights are good, but I like the Second World War dogfights even more because of the sheer speed!!! and your skill needs to honed that much more...less time to react...no heat seeking missiles back THEN. There is nothing more satisfying than a gun kill. Even the fighter pilots of today will agree on that...for obvious reasons http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The only games I have ever played are those of Flight simulation. I was very much looking forward to Storm of War, but so much time has passed since it's announcement, I've played and loved IL-2 in all it's incarnations pretty much to death while waiting. Don't seem to be able to generate any sort of enthusiasm for the release of BoB SoW anymore. I have absolutely no doubt it will be fantastic though. I will probably hang up my combat simming boots before it arrives.
Therefore, I'll just keep up with the Microsoft Flight sim series and its 3rd party add ons.

The official date for Knights of the Sea is Q2, 2008. One website has it listed as 04/15/2008 but that's unconfirmed.

True LoneRanger, the last 3 titles I've mentioned are overly optimistic, but even getting 2 of the top 3 this year would be great! I forgot about BlackShark, that's definitely another one to grab.

SOW-BOB - release maybe next year
Project Galba - 09 or later maybe
KOTS - maybe someday
Spore - 9/7/08
T-34 vs Tiger - 4/08 - Will wait for reviews - may be problems with AI seeing you through hills and trees. Also very small vehicle set on release but I have my eye on it.

Cant wait for the STALKER expansion, the original was one of the best games I have eveer played, along with Halflife1, IL2, Bioshock, Dues Ex 1 etc.

I have just started plkaying through STALKER again actually, and am trying out some mods for it.

There is a mod with a new story etc called 'Priboi Story', not tried it yet, but it looks like its well worth it! :-

I was looking forward to Fall of Liberty were Germany wins WW2 and invades America starting at NY.

The reviews of the game this week are horrible and the game is tagged as one to stay away from.

So I'm hoping to see FarCry-2 , Half Life 3 soon or even Halo 3 for the PC.

I was wondering what happened to that game. they showed a big preview of it like a YEAR ago! And it still isn`t released. Like others have said, I`ve seen too many games blow their release dates to get excited and even when they`re released you need to wait at least 6 months before the game\sim is patched to what it should be.

Anyway, as to the topic question...

I`m cautiously looking forward to Empire Total War, although i think i`ll wait 3 months after it`s released (February 2009 then for me). I don`t even think about SOW cos I don`t think it`ll be out in 2008...

Thinking of giving theatre of War a look now the Patch is out...

That`s it, whatever else comes is a boon.

I have very high hopes for KoTS. Their FSX Dr I is wonderful. I'm losing interest in BoB - but that's mostly because all I have seen is some 3D models that are already being overtaken by FSX stuff. Condor 2 might be good if it ever gets finished. Or started.

But this looks like fun. Hope it makes it!

Are you talking about the timeline? Anything earlier then 3050, and there shouldn't be any Clan mechs, and the Summoner always had the LRM15 in the "Prime" configuation. There is a configuation with a Gauss Rifle that also has a SSRM6, not sure what else it has. It's been a while since I've looked at Technical Readout: 3050.

The 3D model above is based off of the resculpt mini / new artwork they did for the Clan mechs a couple of years ago. I have that resculpted Summoner mini, it rocks.

This is interesting news. i`ll always have a soft spot for MW3 and 4. my very first experience online was when i fought with a MW4 squad which worked very much like a flight-sim online squad.

I hope one day a good Mechwarrior game will be released with a good offline (and maybe online) dynamic campaign complete with all the bells and whistles and NOT dumbed down like an arcade game.

If the did a new mechwarrior right to the original boardgame rules it could be almost like a flight sim itself. If only I could get Oleg somehow dedicated to making it... what a dream that would be.

KoTS looks good. But then again, How many games was I disapointed by this year? I am looking forward to T34 vs Tiger because Go Gamer has had my money for over three months. Last year Battlestations Midway was too young for me. It was a cute game at best. Should have seen that coming. Enemy Engaged 2 was too buggy. Wow! There's two weeks of my life I will never get back. I still try to play it and its nearly impossible. And then there was my retro adventure. I thought It may be a good Idea to get F/A-18. I must have been drunk when I ordered it. Grafixs are bad!!!
However there were some successes last year. ARMA is way too cool. I love it and play it offline from time to time. Another good one was Wings over Israel. I am into the whole Thirdwire thing. I bought First Eagles and its good too. They are good entretainment when IL2 or Lock On are too much.(I DIE a LOT) Race 07 was another great release. I just got it and its not going anywhere. Its better than GTR or GT legends IMO.
Of course I am still a IL2/LockOn FC fanatic. There is my two cents...
