    i was wondering if there are any latest strategy game releases which is really fun to play.

    i am hooked up hacking and playing my nintendo wii for almost two years now...i want to shift my attention in playing pc games, specifically strategy games.

    i really loved playing strategy games like starcraft, warcraft 3, and generals. i even play competitions for this games before. are there any releases from blizzard or any similar games out there that is really kick-ass that you have actually played recently?

    thanks for the suggestions in advance.

    Age of Empires III + Asian Dynasties + The Warchiefs [Last two are expansions]
    Heroes of Newerth + League of Legends [Both are by people who worked to create DoTA]

    Those are some strategy games that should keep you busy. Heroes of Newerth is in closed beta. So you can only try it by getting a beta key from someone. League of Legends is released, so you can just download and play. Age of Empires III was a very good strategy game. Very similar to WarCraft III except Age of Empires is more realistic =]

    You can also try the Call of Duty series. Fun FPS series there.

    King's Bounty Armoured Princess (first expansion to King's Bounty I am aware of) just hit the download scene the other day. Put out by the fine Skidrow lads (whoever the heck they are).

    Looks like a nice game too (just did a quick test install and it likes Windows 7 64 just fine too). The usual crack file on the image of course.

    i'll check on that panzer. thanks for the advice. i was checking hamachi, it seems that strategy games lay low in popularity nowadays. must be because gamers are more on the consoles; either handheld or tv game consoles.

    i checked on warhammer. really looks cool but game play is much like a world of warcraft to me. not like the conventional warcraft 2 or 3 gameplay. is this an add on to WoW or a different game? thanks for the advice. it seems like there are still good online multi-play for the pc.

    King's Bounty game is more slow, not real time battle, turn based . for single player is good but can be boring in long time.
    last time i played a online strategy card game too. battleforge if i remember,
    you collect resource and play cards to have tropps in battlefield , it's good because you don't have to build before muster tropps
