You are not anxious for a new game to come out, you are eager for it to come out.

Sorry for nitpicking, but at least my dictionary (Collins Cobuild) provides the following definition for anxious (in addition to the one about being nervous or worried):

anxious If you are anxious to do something or anxious that something should happen, you very much want to do it or very much want it to happen.

This would clearly allow for someone to be anxious for a game to come out, wouldn't it?
