Here my list below.
Game name Star Citizen.
I been in Alpha stage of Star Citizen seeing what they update on the Hangar Module. Basically you can walk around the ships you own. Go inside the ships. Lay in the bed or sit in combat seat. Looking for bugs. Which is cool. December of 2013 will be the Dog fighting Module I can't Wait. If anyone remember playing Wing Commander this game might be for you.
Thing you be able to do is take off from a carrier or from a *planetary city. Go to different planets. You can do combat, trade and explorer. Protect cargo ships or a Capital ship or destroy one. It sounds like you can have more then one player be in your ship commanding parts of it. Kinda like the Flying Fortresses bomber of ww2. People manning gun turrets. Depending on how large your ship is. I not a 100% but it sounds cool.
It a PC only game. But might move to Consoles machines later. It uses CryEngine 3 that was use for Crysis 3 for graphics. Best setup sounds like a Geforce 680 or 780 cards or AMD ati 6970 7970 or higher with quad core cpu chips. Midrange Geforce 580 or AMD ati 5870, Windows 64 bit OS 8gb of ram or **Mac setup basically the same spec but I am not 100% sure on that. I would suggest SSD hard drive setup.
Game release looks to be late 2014 or 2015? Hearing more then one story.
*I am guessing it will depend on the ship if you can land on the planet or not.
** I am not 100% sure Mac setups.
Elite Dangerous Alpha testing should be done soon. Unknown at this time. Combat, trading (Legal or illegal & slave trade and Narcotic or Military arms), bounty Hunter, Miner, Passenger ship and explorer. You should be able to view damage on your ship like hull breach or you can see your ship age over time kinda like old car clunkers.
The old gamer's like me might remember Elite flying in a Cobra MK3 or a Anaconda in 1984 3D wire frame. Well 30 years later this will be the forth version of Elite. It uses the Cobra engine made by Frontier. Graphics look great so far.
Graphics computer requirements Unknown, Consoles Unknown at this time.
Release date be March 2014? That if everything goes well.
Both games You be in space combat type sim. You can flying your space ships. With a flight stick or keyboard mouse. Unlike Eve you have to it click to change directions or Star Wars: The Old Republic Online or Star Trek online you are on a horizontal plane no real way to control your ship.
They both seem to be a type of hybrid type of MMO. You be able to play offline in single player or online in a MMO type game or Co op type game or PVP. More info required to confirm.
Things that been talk about adding optimus rift support. Basically glasses with monitors in it and when you look around you can view the cockpit like a pilot would in real life.
Elders Scrolls online right now I am waiting for a invite. This is the lease known game I looking at. I am guessing this will be like any other MMO games. So if you like to explore this game might be cool to play. But I hope you can design your own class like you can in Skyrim. Where it a hybred class like Mage/Hunter/burglary Not pick a set class like other MMO games.
release date Spring of 2014!
It looks to be for the New Xbox, PS4 and PC machines.
Sorry I am more hyped about the space Sims
