Micro$haft is being careful to now say launch "window" for launch
titles, meaning they will be available in the launch window, whatever
that means. The list keeps getting shorter and shorter. The best and
most worthwhile games will be out for the PC at the same time or
before, with higher resolutions (1280 by 1024 or 1600 by 1200) and
better gameplay with a KB&M.

- Amped 3 (2K Games)
- Call of Duty 2 (Activision) - on the PC first with better graphics
and gameplay and free MP
- Condemned (Sega) - on the PC also with better graphics
- Dead Or Alive 4 (Tecmo) - rehashed fighting game
- Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Bethesda) - on PC first with better
graphics and gameplay and HD!
- Final Fantasy XI (Microsoft) - already out on the PC
- Full Auto (Sega) - another driving game, who cares, doesn't look that
good
- Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (Ubisoft) - on the PC with better
graphics, gameplay, free MP
- Gun (Activision) - on the PC also
- Kameo: Elements of Power (Microsoft) - you get to be a cute little
fairy, perfect
- Madden NFL 06 (EA) - out on the PC already
- NBA 2K6 (2K Games)
- NHL 2K6 (2K Games)
- The Outfit (THQ)
- Perfect Dark LE (Microsoft) - rather bland, looks like current
generation, not next generation
- Project Gotham Racing 3 (Microsoft) - another driving game, who cares
- Quake 4 (Activision) - on the PC first with better graphics, much
better gameplay, free MP
- Ridge Racer 6 (Namco) - probably a good driving game
- Saints Row (THQ)
- Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (Activision)
- Top Spin 2 (2K Games)

Actually, moron, there's more launch games than that. Nice try, though.

Did Sony release Blig Merk, or did Blig happen to escape from Sony's
lab? Maybe he escaped out of a window, which makes him a "window"
launch title.

Not really surprising. Even a really bad console game will outsell most
PC titles. Right now, it seems only the big franchises are surviving on
the PC side. But really now, just how many FPS games does one really
NEED? Or SIMs plug-ins? (only $20 each!) Or hunting sims? (I never
understood this genre...)

At the same time, there's been a rebirth of the good old days of shareware
and downloadable games directly from the publishers. This is where many
of the die-hard gamers are going, since the mainstream market really isn't
going to support a turn-based WW2 tank squad tactical simulation anymore,
but they're still going strong thanks to independent developers and
publishers.

Not that this is supposed to support Bilgmerk's blathering in any way...
