There are so many online games coming out. HALO 2 looks spectacular, and the recent multiplayer screenshots released make my mouth water. MIDDLE EARTH ONLINE looks good, but because of the recent delay, it won't be out until next year so we've got a little longer to wait for that one. Of course, there are plenty of PC online games coming out this year: LINEAGE II and CITY OF HEROES are both out next week and are looking excellent, WORLD OF WARCRAFT will be out later this year, as well EVERQUEST II. But of course, I'm waiting for STAR WARS GALAXIES: JUMP TO LIGHTSPEED. I love the X-WING series, so considering the game looks a lot like that series brings me hope to my rekindled GALAXIES playtime. Too many online games, too little time. - TR
I suppose the easiest choice for console online game is HALO 2. I'm really excited to get my hands on the Master Chief's next adventure, this time set back on Earth. Another great looking online game is TRUE FANTASY LIVE ONLINE. I had a chance to get to spend some time
As mentioned before, MIDDLE-EARTH ONLINE has been bumped back to a 2005 release...Eidos has announced BACKYARD WRESTLING 2...Capcom has announced VIEWTIFUL JOE 2...LucasArts has stated that the expansion to STAR WARS GALAXIES, JUMP TO LIGHTSPEED, will be released this fall...Nintendo has announced that it will release POKEMON "video paks" for the Game Boy Advance...
