The List - March '10

PC games worthy of mention for this month, ordered by interest.
(Monthly US releases are only estimated, game may end up all hype and really suck)

Lets face it, Christmas 2009 shopping never ended in the gaming world. Good games keep getting pumped out while publishers keep asking, why aren't you buying all our games. They blame pirates, I blame

Battlefield Bad Company 2 - FPS
Also known as the CoD:MW2 killer. It has vehicles, bigger maps, destructible environments, dedicated server option, and a lot of other PC goodness.

Supreme Commander 2
SupCom 1 was best known for its massive amount of everything. Huge maps, huge units, huge economies. Course, it also had a huge processor requirement, one that still does not exist to the average consumer even today. While GPG promises better handling of your system resources, they simplified the in-game resource/economy element. Unfortunately, that was one of its strengths. Expect a good mix of land/air/sea units.

Dragon Age Origins: Awakening - RPG - expansion
An expansion pack for Dragon Age Origins. Thanks to all that DLC crap, its not very often we see an RPG expansion. At $40, I think I got my answer.

Metro 2033 - FPS
A shoot 'em up set in a post apocalyptic Moscow. Developed by some of the original STALKER team.

Command & Conquer 4 - RTS
Last of the C&C Tiberium Saga story. End of the franchise? Another simplified economy system from past formula.

Warhammer 40K Dawn of War II Gold Edition - RTS - Bundle
While Chaos is finally being added to DoW2 this month, I find it more interesting the Gold Edition will also release in March, to include Chaos and the original for $10 more.

Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic - Simulator
I just love the fact Silent Hunter is still produced in this arcade driven gaming environment.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City - Action - Bundled expansions
The Lost and Damned & The Ballad of Gay Tony expansion finally released for PC.
