Fable 2 (X360)
TBA 2008 / Dev: Lionhead Studios / Pub: Microsoft

Welcome to the world of Albion 500 years into the future: a world evolved. The creator, Peter Molyneux of Lionhead Studios, has done away with convention and will bring gamers action and adventure in ways we've never imagined. One of the interesting gameplay elements is your dog companion with whom interactions will be integral. As of yet there are no strong details on how important they will be, but the sheer secrecy surrounding this component of play probably means it will be vital. Also, there will be a one-button combat system. You will not be stringing together button combos like in God of War. Melee attacks will be mapped to the X button and you will use it in different ways such as tapping for quick attacks, holding down to block, and upon releasing performing a special attack.


The end result will be seemingly choreographed cinematic battles. This one button scheme will also apply to ranged attacks and magical feats. Finally, should you be bested by a band of brigands, you will not die in the traditional sense. Rather, you will be pounded into submission and left to bear the scars as a memento for the rest of your life. These scars will act as a reminder to all around you of your past dealings. This action/adventure RPG has been promised to release sometime in 2008. We can't wait! - Jonathan Marx

Indiana Jones (X360, PS3, PC)
TBA 2008 / Dev: LucasArts / Pub: LucasArts

Forget about Star Wars; it's LucasArts' other prized property that's got us eager to grab our gamepads. Indiana Jones next-gen debut promises to evolve the action/adventure genre by utilizing new physics tech that'll see environments and characters acting and reacting in ways previously not possible in gaming; with every whip crack, gun shot, and fist-to-face, wood will splinter, glass will shatter, and enemies will fall differently, yet realistically every time--expect a drastic upgrade from the typical floppy rag dolls that populate current games. Of course, we're gamers not friggin' MIT students, so while we're super-psyched for the ground-breaking technology, it's the whip-wielding, relic-hunting, seat-of-your-pants gaming that's got our attention. Details are scarcer than that golden idol Indy un-earthed at the beginning of Raiders, but early footage of Dr. Jones duking it out atop a runaway trolley car, has us anticipating this one as much as Indy's blockbusting return to the big screen. - Matt Cabral

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (DS)
Feb. 12, 2008 / Dev: Capcom / Pub: Capcom

The Phoenix Wright games are probably my favorite DS titles ever for a number of reasons. And much to my delight, the upcoming DS title Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is looking to bring back all of that, plus add some more features to the mix. Apollo Justice features the same point-and-click investigative gameplay that we all know and love from past Ace Attorney games. The court scenes are much the same as those of past games, but there are also a lot of touch screen features in Apollo Justice -- think back to the last case of the first game. And of course, add to the mix a brand new defense attorney, new prosecutors, a very familiar face, and fantastic new epic cases, and you've got yourself a great-looking DS game. The cases will feature plot twists and shocking revelations around every turn, as expected, and is promising to be one of the best DS titles this year. - Joseph Catalanotto
