My System Specs

Default '09 PC games. A look ahead.

2008 had it's hits but compared to '07s stellar field of great games it paled in comparison. Are we due for another mediocre year or are we due for another great year in PC gaming?
Heres just a few PC titles I'm looking forward to in this new year

Saints Row 2 On PC Jan. 5th
Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box On PC Feb. 3rd
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin On PC Feb. 10th

Tom Clancy's EndWarOn PC Mar. 3rd
Bionic Commando unknown release date for PC
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II PC release sometime in March/April

And of coarse...
StarCraft II PC release sometime in 2009 (hopefully)

So what games are you anxiously awaiting in 2009?

******* bioshock 2!

I added the curse for emphasis as there seems to be some sort of caps lock filter in place.

Empire: Total War.

As long as they still make single player the priority, that is the game I am seriously looking at.

There will not be a Bioshock 2 PC in 09!
As to Mirror's Edge, this one is due January 19 or sometime int he last week! (This is an extremely short game!)
....as to Duke Nukem Forever, don't count on it........
Alan Wake, another short game.......

I think overall it will be a quiet year for the PC as developers now are moving towards consoles because piracy - so you will end up with RPGs or crappy console ports :D
