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?

I'm glad that the Amiibo stock situation got much better. Because Hasbro sure as hell didn't get the memo with their Marvel Legends figures. These two seem more elusive than a western Lucina Amiibo!

Seeing as how SMT is nowhere near as massively popular as Pokemon, this probably won't become a thing. Still, I'm curious about whoever's favorite demon/persona. Mine's probably Trumpeter! Without 'em, I would've never aced P4G on Very Hard.

Playing Tearaway Unfolded without glasses on makes it looks even prettier, gives it a glossy papercraft or almost dreamlike feel to it.

I've beaten the Gaping Dragon and finally got the key to Blight town, whats the first thing I immediately did when I got there? Fall right into a endless pit and died.

I scanned some pages from issues of Nintendo Power from the early 90's and saw this back cover ad. I thought it would be appropriate to post today. Who's everyone rooting for tonight?

Came home pissed off for some reason, hopped on Rocket League and played the best games of my life. New tactic!

10 hours into the Witness, I've solved 350 puzzles, and activated 8 lasers. So, that's about 35 puzzles an hour, I think that's a pretty good pace. I have no idea how many more puzzles there are, but I think I'll be getting towards the first ending soon.

Shoot, I have made the awful mistake of watching 50 First Dates while doing Comments of the Week. The comedy in the beginning gave me energy, but all of the sad drama is making me cry and it's hard to see through all the tears. WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME!? 8^8

Kotobukiya's making a Xenoblade Chronicles X Formula skell model that looks great but I'd rather have a Lailah model. And I would name it Tharja just like my Lailah in the game.

Damn you, TV Tropes. As if I wasn't already dead set against doing an Undertale genocide run, this has killed the possibility for me.
