CES 2007: Upcoming Windows games aim to impress

5:28 PM on 01.09.2007 // Jordan Devore

Microsoft recently unveiled their Games for Windows lineup at CES and I honestly can't believe how great the list is. Who knew other genres besides first-person shooter actually existed?

If you happen to be at work and you can't view this video or you just enjoy reading the names of PC games, then look over the full list of titles after the break.

"Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures" (Eidos Interactive/Funcom)

"Age of Empires III: The Warchiefs" (Microsoft Game Studios/Ensemble Studios)

"Alan Wake" (Microsoft Game Studios/Remedy)

"Bioshock" (2K Games/Irrational Games)

"Company of Heroes" (THQ Inc./Relic Entertainment)

"Crysis" (EA Partners/Crytek)

"Enemy Territory: Quake Wars" (Activision/Splash Damage)

"Flight Simulator X" (Microsoft Game Studios/ACES Studio)

"Frontlines: Fuels of War" (THQ/Kaos Studios)

"Halo 2" (Microsoft Game Studios/Bungie Studios)

"Hellgate: London" (EA Partners/NAMCO BANDAI Games/Flagship Studios)

"LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy" (LucasArts/TT Games)

"Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar" (Midway/Turbine Inc.)

"Marvel Universe Online" (Microsoft Game Studios/Cryptic Studios)

"Rail Simulator" (EA Partners/Kuju Entertainment)

"Shadowrun" (Microsoft Game Studios/FASA Studio)

"Supreme Commander" (THQ/Gas Powered Games)

"Tabula Rasa" (NCSoft Corp./ Destination Games)

"World in Conflict" (Sierra Entertainment/Massive Entertainment)

"Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals" (Microsoft Game Studios/Blue Fang Games)

"Zoo Tycoon 2: Marine Mania" (Microsoft Game Studios/Blue Fang Games)

"Zoo Tycoon 2: Zookeeper Collection" (Microsoft Game Studios/Blue Fang Games)

Bioshock, Alan Wake, Crysis, Hellgate, and Supreme Commander are all looking mighty fine right about now. See any games that captivate you?

A Nintendo rep gave this to me today because she likes talking to me. I do have lots of the Old AC eReader cards I guess I could put in it... [img][/img]

I'm still trying to figure out how to do it, but for the most part I like what I've seen of the new blog editor. My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.

Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles) [youtube][/youtube] This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).

What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...

Been trying to get Tales Of Phantasia finished before Zestiria comes out... How i'm going to get through that game I have no clue... especially when Exist Archive comes out in December and I have to play that too... also i've still yet to finish Grandia 2

Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?

Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.

I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.

I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?

Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too.

Freezing my ass off at a Penn State football game. Half of the hicks at this stadium probably didn't graduate high school, yet they're rooting for a college football team. I wish I was on my warm den playing MGS V.

Gosh darn it, she's done it again! That Sapphire's a talented minx. [youtube][/youtube]

Is renting games still a thing in America? I know there's only one UK company still doing rentals. And does it make you less tolerant of games? I definitely gave games less of a chance when I knew I could sling them back in the envelope and get a new one.

Probably the most awesome soundtrack in an indie game. And the game isn't so bad either. win/win situation tbqh.
