SPlinter Cell 3 looks like it will take over the Stealth Action Franchise however. Snake eater looks as though it will abandon some of the conventions of Metal Gear Solid and opt for a more realistic Outdoorsy scenario (wise move Konami), but Sam Fisher picked up where Solid Snake left off. New Gadgets, COOP multiplayer, and hopefully the same rock-solid plot found in Pandora Tomorrow. SC3: Chaos Theory looks like it will be another game I call in sick to play
Resident Evil 4 looks quite nice, less like a zombie game, though. Resident Evil 0 was essentially the exact balance I wanted in a Zombie Game, this looks more like Dino Crisis, but it looks like <i>bad ass</i> Dino Crisis.
But for computer games, a decent version of Counter-Strike is what I look forward to. I am tired of playing Dust and a couple of shit third party maps in CS:S. The game dynamics are close to perfect, including weapon balance (which I pray they don't fuck up, everything is where it should be). Perhaps 2 more weapons for variety, the same way the Galil and Famas were thrown in, to fill the gap between Submachine gun and Assault rifle. Perhaps a pistol, shotgun, or MG is slated, but I do have some doubts that Valve would do this.
Half-Life 2 looks good assuming it will come out... ever. The physics are better than Doom 3, and it looks like a flexible engine that will prove to be superior in terms of mods which is very good. I also dig the way single-player looks, running around in eastern europe chucking spider-grenades at marines gives me goosebumps. Multiplayer is iffy unless mods or Coop shows up.
Doom 3 is possibly the prettiest game I have ever seen. Also the smoothest running considering the graphics. I love the single-player and can't wait for their Team Fortress clone to come out. I hope Quake 4 will come out soon to take back multiplayer from HL2 (assuming HL2 comes out before this ) and from UT2004.
UT 2004 impressed me for about a week, then I just set it down and never went back to it. Perhaps a negative association I built while watching the "Dirty Harry" collection whilst playing, or maybe the bloody feces, but I'm not sure. It is a solid game however. Just... not my solid game.
What.... the fuck?
Well Gabe's getting a dildo in his mail box for this. Fedral offense right there, Mailbox sodomy and tampering with fedral property.
