ESRB Rating: Rating Pending
Hotness Factor: 4

Pokemon has never truly disappeared, although it has had its moments of extreme popularity and then lost interest. There is not one among us that can say they have never heard of the hyperactive anime series. With the recent release of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, the cute, but sometimes obnoxious Pokemon, are set to ignite the craze all over again. With Pokemon Battle Revolution, a whole new generation could become obsessed with catching them all.

Pokemon Battle Revolution will not just be one of the first stepping-stones to the resurgence of Pokemon. It will also mark the first online multiplayer game for the Nintendo Wii. Of course, to go along with the online feature, we will be able to fully customize our trainer. We will also be able to control six Pokemon as we go into battle in one of ten coliseums. There are a couple of new features to the game that will only heighten the already fever pitch of a new Pokemon game.

One is that you will be able to watch the attacks of the Pokemon without the screen changing from one Pokemon to the other. The environments will also take damage just like in the show. You will also be able to use your wireless connection between your DS holding Pokemon Diamond and Pearl to unlock more content specifically for the Pokemon enthusiast. Prepare yourself for this summer to catch them all.

Name of the Game: Two Worlds
Systems: Xbox 360; PC
Publisher: Southpeak Games
Developer: Reality Pump
Release: June 26, 2007
Number of Players: Up to 8 online
ESRB Rating: Rating Pending
Hotness Factor: 3

Anticipation surrounding Two Worlds has been growing. For good reason too. RPG fans have been aching for the genre to expand and grow in a way to keep the genre fresh. Over the recent years, many developers have taken liberties with adjusting the genre, Reality Pump just seems to be on the verge of shaking it to its core.

The key behind the potential success of Two Worlds is the notion of total player freedom. While freedom of choice has always been a huge factor in the genre, Reality Pump promises nothing like this. Depending on your actions in the game, the world will act accordingly. This will also open up new challenges for you to face as you progress in the game. However, we are not at this moment sure how things will turn out with this much player interaction. Specifically, the environments, which have been hinted will change in accordance to the behaviors and decisions made by the player.

Freedom always being key in a RPG to begin with, Two Worlds is turning out to be the one that offers more freedom than we might be able to handle. I am equally excited about the possible challenge that will come from the title and the beautiful graphics as well. With only a month left to wait, it is time to get ready to have our decisions affect the world.

Hot Games of 2007 article

Name of the Game: Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures
Systems: Xbox 360; PC; PlayStation 3
Publisher: TBA
Developer: Funcom
Release: TBA
Number of Players: Unlimited
ESRB Rating: Rating Pending
Hotness Factor: 3

Probably the biggest surprise, as far as an addition to the most anticipated RPG of 2007, is a title that carries the name of a 75 year old barbarian. The barbarian in question is none other than Conan. Though you will not be able to play as Conan, his world will explode onto our screens in a way not yet captured aside from the novels of Robert E. Howard.

In fact, the story behind Hyborian Adventures is loosely based upon the novel Conan the Cimmerian Stories. Funcom has stated that the tone of the books will not be lost in the game, so we can rest assured that the game will feature a Mature rating. Hyborian Adventures will also be just the start of the series, with expansion packs and possible sequels. The real exciting thing about the game is that, in a market flooded by MMORPGs, Funcom insists that Conan is more of a massive action online game. Only time will tell.

With the single player functionality online without the interaction of other players and, of course, the limitless possibilities of players joining in on the fray, we all should prep ourselves for the barbaric ways of Conan. We all have barbarian blood in us and soon we will be able to prove the extent of our heritage either by ourselves or in front of the countless other would-be-barbarians.

RPGs capture the minds and hearts of fans on every corner of the earth. With so many titles arriving at our game stores throughout this year, we may end up calling this year, the year of the RPG. Gamers across the globe rejoice and gear up for long nights ahead of them. Break out the strategy guides!
