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?

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

People are having serious anthropological discussions about video games and here I am reminding people that they have one more day to get a dumb card I painted:

I just finished this thing here: I'm mostly happy with my results, altough it lacks some stuff like Skyward Sword or Sonic & Knuckles [img][/img]

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

I'm in the mood for some feel-good music. Hit me with your best feel-good VGM, people! [youtube][/youtube]

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!

Ok you Monday morning motherfuckers, 3 favourite fictional universes you'd like to exist in (The initial iteration of the universe had to be in videogame form) Go.

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?

What should I do guys?

Just 1200 words left to go on my essays. Do I deserve a day off to play Just Cause 3 once I'm done? Yes.

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.

Well, Destructoid. I did it. I jumped ahead.
