Future PC Games / State Of Gaming HYPE Thread.
The game list might have moved on a long way from the original one, and as with any such list, not all of it worked out, but the principle remains: This is a thread purely for hype and positivity about PC Gaming and forthcoming games that get you particularly excited. If you're playing it already or it's just a general comment, post it in the Other PC Games Thread. If it's big enough for the func_audience (usually Quake / Doom / Unreal / HL series etc), start a specific thread for it.

New list for 2018 onwards:

Updated for reasonz:

Still hype maybe:

Cyberpunk 2077 - blatantly Deus Witcher, but top of the hype list?

Iron Harvest - it's crowdfunded, let's hope it succeeds

Metro Exodus - equal top of the hype list maybe

Doom 5 - also equal top. Thank fuck there's some vaguely entertaining FPS in the works

Tentative hype:

Phoenix Point - still waiting

Witchfire - verrrrrrrrry tentative

Mechwarrior 5 - the world always needs more Mechs!


Mutant Year Zero - the new XCom clone hype, more so than PP.

Battletech - it came out, it was great, nuff said.

Call OF Cthulu - FP interactive movie puzzle / talking sim


Anthem - bollox Ass Effect meets Dickstiny meets who gives a fuck.

The next From Software game - turned out to me boring Japan history meh Nioh clone.

Will try to find the video clip links for some of these, seeing a lot of clips recently inspired me to post this...

You Lot A Rubbish. 
Redeem yourself by posting some news / videos showing how utterly thrilling PC gaming will be in the next few years. 
PUBG full release : this game is something else. It's lovely to see a high stakes multiplayer fps get some recognition. Bring on the clones!

Star Citizen : Really looking forward to this space sandbox! Maybe it'll be out fully in another 2-3 years? Who knows. I hope the single player campaign is excellent.

XCOM 2 WotC : This expansion looks farking excellent. So much new shit to do. A bit pricey for an X-pac but I'm guaranteed to get my moneys worth from it.

Destiny 2 : Destiny is great on ps4, can't wait to see how it feels on pc with a proper framerate etc.

Wolfenstein 2 - German boogaloo : Gameplay I've seen looks great. Looking forward to the acid trip level, don't let me down czg!!!

Metro Exodus : because of course it's in my list. Gameplay demo shown at whateverthefuckitwas blew my socks off.

Warframe - Tides of Eidolon : Warframe is getting an open world map to explore with everything that entails.. and fishing? Definitely worth a look when it's released.

DayZ full release : It's hitting beta (finally) this year and hopefully that means it'll start becoming a game and less a frustrating test bed. With that said, holy shit I've had some experiences in this thing. Definitely the best wilderness survival sandbox out there thanks to the lack of focus on fucking crafting bullshit and the beautiful world.

Anthem : On the fence with this one. It has the potential to be awesome but I'm firmly in the "wait and see" bucket. Love those suits though :)

Half-Lahahahahahahahahahaha *cries into potty* 
Wolfenstein 2 is the only triple A game I am looking forward to this year. 
Isnt PUBG Already A Clone Of Whatever Battle Royale PU Was On Before ? 
Metro Exodus is the only triple A game I am looking forward to this year. 
Has Czg Gone Onto The Professional Scene? 
Wolfenstein 2 - German boogaloo : Gameplay I've seen looks great. Looking forward to the acid trip level, don't let me down czg!!! 
iirc he worked at Starbreeze (?) then moved to Machine Games. He did Wolf:TNO and the X-pac. 
Props To Him! 
Must be nice to make a living out of his passion. I wish I did with my music. 
He Also Worled On That Skrillex Commercial 
Anyone Has More Details 
about the maps he worked on for Wolf? 
Was Czg Involved At All With 
or had he moved on by that point. 
Maybe Ask Him? 
Movement and headbob look real janky. Crosshair is a bit out of place. Playable areas are underwhelming so far....but....

WorldWarPunk Strategy / Tactics Game??

Dem robots man. Love this style. Also hyped for more RTS especially if it's about combat strategy / tactics and not just endless base-building resource-cock-gobbling political-micro-management bullshit (Total Warhammer I'm looking at you with the last one)/ 
Ohhh Yeah.

Battletech single player campaign. Be warned AI is disabled for this video, but it's already pretty challenging in the revamped skirmish beta. Proper maps look sweet and the whole thing is shaping up well. 
Both of those look pretty good 
Another Guaranteed* Cert:

* okay may not be guaranteed, but it's Metro and the vibes are always spot on. i wonder if this one is gearing up to be a bit more non-linear / semi-open?? Could be cool. 
Upgrading This To Hype Level Hype. 
Based on the 2nd combat they play. Sure it's an XCom clone but with real time exploration thrown in and a theme of it's own..... 
Fuck knows about the state of gaming.... 
What were thoughts of people here about cthulu 
Stream Tonight. 
Yup. Count me in. 
Some 1 Year Delay Hype.... 
A few timed Epic Malware exclusives to look forward to a year late (hopefully patched and discounted):

Mechwarrior 5
Metro Exodus
The Outer Worlds
Phoenix Point
Rune 2
The Sinking City

(Just noting them down so I remember) 
Thumbs Up For Control 
After some quick googling wasn't the Epic store pulling these malwarish moves only around the time it was launched, but they were fixed or something? So I decided to trust them for now and bought Control. I figured it would be good to give Steam some competition and support the developers while doing so, since devs get a larger cut from Epic.

Anyway, I really like Control. If you like metroidvanias and exploration, you very well might like this. Also, if you liked HL2's gravity gun, you'll like the well executed telekinesis ability of Control. (Although I have a feeling it's a bit OP. It's still fun, though.) 
Yeah Sorry My Mistake 
I meant Epic Anti-Competitive Anti-Consumer Store.... 
Was Chatting To Daz Yesterday. 
And keeping the hype levels high for:


Necromunda - when patched and on sale.

Horizon Zero Dawn - when patched and on sale.

Rune 2 Reboot - when patched and on sale.

Iron Harvest - when on heavy sale.


Phoenix Point proper steam release - if well discounted.

Mechwarrior 5 proper steam release - if well discounted.

Cyberpunk 2077


Deathloop - if not too repetitive

WH40K Darktide - 40k vermintide yes plz

Baldur's Gate 3 - BG DOS style yes plz

Atomic Heart - looks cool


Next 4A game (new IP)

Next From Software game (written by GRRM)

Stalker 2

Hellblade 2
