Looks like I picked a good time to upgrade my rig:

Crysis 2
Deadspace 2
Dragon Age 2
Portal 2
Rage later this year.
Rift looks pretty exciting.
Some game called Bulletstorm on Steam that looks pretty bad-ass, but I never heard of it before this week.

Gonna be an expensive year.

I have too much catching up to do already ??? I just finished CoD4: Modern Warfare. Yah, I'm a bit behind!

What's a 360? - LOL

I just pre ordered Crysis 2 (PC) from New Egg. They were running a special sale on all three versions. Ten dollars off for pre orders.

I am with you spyder...I enjoy the uber speed on my pc over any console. I do have all of the playstation consoles,I can not get into them as much as the pc games. Even though playing on a 50" plasma is very nice,my 22 samsung syncmaster is very nice also.

The one I'm most looking fwd to is Alice2. I imagine that will be a bit of a mind bender.

Portal2 is second on my list.

BWAAAHAHAHAA HA

DNF delayed (suprised?) - it made the AFP newsfeed.

Duke Nukem videogame comeback delayed - again

SAN FRANCISCO, March 24, 2011 (AFP) - The long-delayed comeback of
videogame tough guy "Duke Nukem" hit another snag on Thursday with 2K Games
bumping arrival of the latest title back a month into June.
First-person shooter game "Duke Nukem Forever" has been a work in progress
since 1997, missing a slew of release dates before 2K put it in the hands of
Gearbox Software developers last year for completion.
"We're committed to deliver a laugh-out-loud, politically incorrect
experience that people will talk about for years to come," said 2K president
Christoph Hartmann.
"We thank Duke's fans for their continued patience - I promise this won't
take another 15 years."
The videogame's excruciatingly protracted creation process has made it
prime fodder for jokes in the industry.
The upcoming title is a sequel to a "Duke Nukem 3D" videogame that sold
more than three million copies after its release in late 1996.

Just til June though. Which works for me because I was going to have to choose between it and Brink anyway and can't really afford both in the same month. :D

Dammit - this game must be cursed or something!

I don't know if I can wait another 15 years for it to be released.

Aw, what the hell - I will still be gaming at age 82 anyway.

I can wait.

Here are some of the games I have purchased on steam this year.
Battlefield Bad Company 2 *
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 *
Fallout3 +
Fear 2 Project Origin *
Grand Theft Auto 4 +
Grand Theft Auto Liberty City +
Avatar *
Left for Dead 2 +
Mass Effect +
Mass Effect 2 +
Medal of Honor +
Medal of Honor Airborne +
Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl +
Stalker Call of Pripyat +
Section 8 Prejudice +
Sniper - Ghost Warrior *

Other purchases
Crysis 2 *
DNF pre order

The * indicates finished. The + indicates still playing.

The original Duke Nukem 3D Atomic edition ported for windows (still available at 3D realms.com)
I am playing it today.

BTW, you can also buy Rise of the Triad and Shadow Warrior ported for windows at 3D Realms. IMHO, they both still are very good games, even though they are pixellated. It is not the graphics that make them so good - it is the content and gameplay. I still play both of them and enjoy it.

Games I want to try

Brink
Rage
Rift
Bullet Storm
Battlefield 3

I think my head is going to explode pretty soon if I try to play all of these games.
And my wallet is not doing very well, either.
