The Anticipation, Updated

I took a closer look at the release prospects for the games I mentioned earlier this week. Here are my best guesses.

-Half-Life 2 (doesn't want to be labeled 'Half-Life Forever')
-Rome: Total War (late beta spotted, already delayed from last year)
-Kohan II: Kings of War (I saw this two years ago at E3. Late beta spotted)
-Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault (delayed from last year)
-Evil Genius (went gold today, in stores late September)

-RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 (late beta spotted)
-Chris Sawyer's Locomotion (advertising in full gear)
-Pirates (advertising ramp consistent with late-fall release. However, Meier has released games in February in the past, and would have the market to himself then)
-Prince of Persia 2 (add five new textures and a new jump, change the puffy shirts of the enemy, and you're good to go)

-Full Spectrum Warrior (a port, plus no ramp-up in advertising yet)
-Men of Valor (some advertising, but nothing conclusive)
-Pacific Fighters (I have absolutely no idea)
-Vampire: The Masquerade-Bloodlines (delayed from last year, but I have no idea)
-Ghost Recon 2 (no idea)

-Silent Hunter III (next spring, delayed to insert dynamic campaigns, thanks to Greg W. for the e-mail)
