Fuck life this looks good. New Bioshock, takes place before the first two. You're the detective Booker DeWitt and are told to find some girl trapped in Columbia - a flying city. Sadly, this awesomelooking game with the damn awesome trailer is due for 2012. So we'll have to wait some time before we can get our hands on that beauty.
See the developers page if you crave any more of this. http://www.bioshockinfinite.com/main.php

Finally a new RPG and it even looks good. This one's the third part of a hopefully well known series by Square Enix (Final Fantasy) and Obsidian Entertainment (Neverwinter Nights 2, Fallout New Vegas), FUCK YEAH. There's not much info out there yet, but release is planned for 2011.

Empire Earth III. Third part of the series, still by Sierra Entertainment. Before I'm saying anything I'll say that I didn't play the the second part but only the first and third one. Anyway, so I was playing Empire Earth in the Campaign and I was a bit surprised when there's finally an earth you could conquer. You aren't fighting over anything else but the whole world. However, I was already fighting with Russians over the American continent in 500 BC, which surprised me aswell. At the start, you can pick between West (America/Europe) East (Like, Russia) and Far East (Asia) which later, as you advance in epochs (which are only 5 now, not, like, 20 in the first one) are divided into different countries that are more advanced in one part of your army (for example, Germany is good with tanks). During the missions there are random events, like "conquer a city within 15 minutes to fear your enemies so you get additional trade out of this province (packed into a nice text, of course)" which make the game more varying. Still, it's not going to be as varying as EE I. I recall having, like, 20 buildings for each epoch and updated units for nearly every epoch. For RTS-fans this is going to be a good title I think, but, still being an RTS-fan, I don't really like it, probably expecting something similiar to ye olde and beloved Empire Earth. But don't keep this comment from testing it out, you might really like it.
Also: Fucking polls, how do they work?

R.U.S.E. by Ubisoft and Eugen Systems is one of the better strategy games I played lately. The graphics are good, even on low settings and the sound is simply awesome. You get to pick from 6 different factions you can play and each of them has their advantages and disadvantages, but they are very well balanced. The single-player campaign consists of 25 missions in which you are Lieutenant Colonel (later General) Joe Sheridan and control the armies of the US, UK and French (and for a short time even the Germans) and fight against the Germans, Italians and USSR.
The only downside (for me): No LAN-multiplayer.
