Feature: 10 PC Games We Wish Were Coming In 2010


Last week we did an extensive look at all of the big PC game titles that are currently scheduled for release this year (at least that's the plan; release dates can and likely will change for many of those titles). But there are also many games that have already been announced are not on our 2010 list. The reason? We just don't think they will ship out before the year is over.

However that's no reason to at least hope against hope. We decided to pick 10 previously announced games that we don't think will be released in the next 12 months but we do wish would make it. Of course, one or two of the titles on this list may actually surprise us and come out by the end of 2010. But at the moment the odds don't look good. By the way, we picked 10 games that are all officially announced. We could add a ton of other games that we know are in development but are not yet ready to become public (Blizzard's next-gen MMO, the next Infinity Ward game, etc) but that's a much longer list that we will get to later.

Feature: Big Download's 2010 PC Game Wishes


As we enter a new year (and indeed a new decade) we at Big Download are looking forward to playing a lot of great new PC games. But we also have certain things that we wish game developers and publishers would try doing in the new year.

You know the drill. There are certain issues in game releases we want addressed in 2010 such as not releasing games before they are properly tested or making sure that certain games have certain features that we enjoy. We have put our PC game wishes for 2010 out in the public for all to see. We just hope that these suggestions are taken to heart.

Feature: Top 10 2010 console games that should also be PC games


There's lots of PC games that are due in 2010 but let's face facts; there are also some games due in the next 12 months that are (at the moment anyway) supposed to be console exclusive. We think that at least some of those titles should be made available to PC owners as well.

Big Download picked 10 games that are planned for a console-only release in 2010 that we think should be released for the PC platform. They include action-adventure titles, a co-op specific title, a long awaited fantasy RPG and a 256-player first person shooter. We also give our opinion on if in fact a PC port is possible, unlikely or never going to happen for each game.

Feature: 2010 PC Game Predictions


As we run out of hours before the end of 2009, our minds are already thinking about what might happen in the next 12 months. Last year at this time we gave our predictions on what the PC game industry might do in 2009. Some of our predictions were proven to be correct and others, well, not so much.

So now it's time to do it all over again and look into our rather hazy crystal ball and give some predictions on what events mght happen in 2010. Will we bat 1000 this time or will our predictions miss by a mile. In 12 months we should know.

Feature: 2010 PC Game Preview - RTS And Other Games


Today we come to the end of our 2010 PC games feature as we check out a number of RTS titles due for release next year as well as some other games. Perhaps the biggest PC game release of the year is in the section but we will let the feature speak for itself.

You can go back and check out part one and part two of our 2010 game preview that focuses on action and FPS games and part three which looked at role playing and MMO games. But we are not done quite yet. Tomorrow we will reveal our picks for the top 10 most anticipated PC games of the upcoming year.

Feature: 2010 PC Game Preview - RPG-MMO Games


So far Big Download has been looking at the action and first person shooter titles currently scheduled for a 2010 release. Today we take a gander at a number of RPG and MMO titles that are also scheduled for release sometime in the next year.

There's lots of MMO expansions due out next year including the latest one for the biggest MMO title around. But if you don't feel like playing online there's also plenty of other offline MMO games to choose from this year as well, and for once not all of them are fantasy based.

Feature: 2010 PC Game Preview - Action-FPS Games Part 2


Yesterday we started our multi-part 2010 PC game preview with the first part of our two part action-first person shooter overview. Today we conclude our look at that genre with a number of games that we think might actually be released this year, including one or two that have yet to be officially announced (but we know they are being made).

Once again, release dates can and usually do change so if some of these titles don't make a 2010 release, please don't blame us. We are just the messenger.

Feature: 2010 PC Game Preview - Action-FPS Games Part 1


With 2009 close to becoming a memory, PC gamers are already looking forward to 2010, especially in the first quarter where there's already a massive amount of major games scheduled for release. Over the next several days, Big Download will be reviewing what major PC game titles are currently scheduled to come out in 2010 (keeping in mind that release schedules can and likely will change for many of the games).

We begin as we did last year with the first part of a two part preview of the major first person shooter games and overall action game titles currently set for a 2010 release. As usual there are lots of sequels to previously released games on this list but there are a few completely new games coming as well.
