    Isto é de outro forum, mas achei mostrar isto aqui:

    After a surge of great console games, there comes a time in each generation when more attention is focused on the PC, resulting in an increased support and better games for PC, which usually happens around 3 years after a generation starts. However, it seems the turning point from this generation came sooner than anticipated: Just 1.5 years after the release of Wii and PS3.
    I think, starting this month, the PC will increase it's quality gaming, with many great games coming out, that will probably make the best period to game on PC since 1998. The 'golden period' will begin this August, and complete the turning point in 2009.

    Love - TBA 2008
    Developer: Eskil Steenberg
    Genre: Adventure (MMO Adventure)

    This is a game to play with your friends, and for them to play with their friends. Never enough to be crowded; never so few to be alone. You can make your mark, but as in life, it’s not a contest. It’s not about who you are; it’s about the things you do. There is a small planet waiting for you to explore. There is an empire waiting for you to overthrow.

    The world is worth changing, so get on with it. Take your mates and make your planet whatever you want it to be. Some of it is yours, and some is your friends. Some just happens by itself. Sometimes it disappears and makes you sad. But then again, you know that kind of thing can’t last. It’s a balancing act between love and loneliness.

    Stories in games are rigid and stale, because no team, no matter its size, can create content for all the things players may want to do. Stories are prepared long in advance and is something you follow, not something you create. Love is different. In Love the story is not something that is "Pre-scripted" but something that is organically created while you play. By using Procedural algorithms the game can constantly generate new events and content for you to explore. By being generated while you play, the experience can be tailored to your play style and respond to your actions. This is not a game where you are being lead down a path, this is a game where you decide the direction of the story.

    Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
    Genre: RPG

    In the aftermath of the defeat of the King of Shadows, the Sword Coast is in the midst of an uneasy economic recovery. Trade syndicates have sprung up to exploit the post-war confusion for their own ends and the players' party will wade into this uncertain environment. In order to increase their own fortunes, they can either ally with a syndicate to create a trade empire, or cut their own path through Faerun by preying upon caravans and selling the goods on the black market. As they attempt to extend their influence, players will become aware of a new faction working behind the scenes: the evil, shape-shifting, serpentine Yuan-Ti.
    In addition to trading and economic manipulation, the Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir Overland Map allows players to explore the Chultan Peninsula and Sword Coast in a non-linear manner never before seen in any of the Neverwinter Nights games. Exploration will take players from well-known locations, like Neverwinter and Crossroad Keep, to more exotic areas, such as the xenophobic jungle nation of Samarach. Groups of highwaymen and monsters populate the Overland Map and the farther from civilization the player roams, the more difficult the encounters become. The 15-hour campaign in Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir is also packed with new classes, spells, creatures, and playable races.

The more advanced the creatures of the planet grow, the more complex the strife of survival becomes.

    Developer: Microids
    Genre: Adventure

No clues are picked up during the autopsy, as the serial killer painstakingly washed the body. Once again, the killer has not committed any errors.
    From her motel room, McPherson comes across a report by Paloma Hernandez, the journalist covering all the crimes bearing the East Coast Torturer's signature. Hernandez has been highly critical of the FBI's and McPherson's lack of progress. That does not stop Hernandez from phoning and asking McPherson to meet her later that evening.
