Out on PC Today, September 27th

Nuclear Dawn 
Media Preview
It has finally arrived. Nuclear Dawn is the FPS/RTS hybrid that has been in the makings for many years, developed by Interwave Studios. It was being created as a mod for the source engine originally, but instead it turned into a full retail offering, much like Red Orchestra. I did a overview of the game back in July and I'm afraid I still don't know much more about it now than I did then. It sure looks interesting and fun, but that remains to be seen. It is available on steam, exclusively, and it costs $25, it also has a four player pack available for $75.

Total War: Shogun 2- Rise of the Samurai  
Rise of the Samurai is the first DLC for Shogun 2, presenting a new independent campaign, new factions, new units, new multiplayer maps, new castle maps and plenty of bug fixes and UI. Even if you don't pick up the DLC there is still a hefty patch associated with it, a patch that adds the castle maps and all of the fixes. There are six new clans to play, focusing on a smaller area of Japan than the normal campaign. It adds sixteen new lands, ten naval units and four new agent types. The DLC costs $9.99, which seems pretty justifiable for how much content it adds to the game. Check it out through it's steam page of the Shogun 2 website.

Dungeons - The Dark Lord
Dungeons the Dark Lord is the first expansions to the game Dungeons. Dungeons is a game that is inspired by the Dungeon Keeper series, but it plays out more like tower defense game than a dungeon building and exploring game. You are evil and you are fighting the forces of good, but it isn't much at all like Dungeon Keeper, other than the art style. I played the original back when it came out and while I like tower defense games, I didn't like this one much. The expansion adds a new campaign, four new multiplayer modes, new skills, a new dungeon setting and more. It costs $29.99 and is available through their main website and steam. This game is not only available through steam, it has a wider release than the previous two entries.
