Dishonored
Possibly MoH:W, though I think Spec Ops: The Line has kind of changed the way I view modern shooters irreparably.

Lots of goodies on PSN coming up:

Dyad
Malicious
Sound Shapes
Papo & Yo
The Unfinished Swan
Okami HD (never played it)

Weird seeing the Dishonored love since in this thread since it didn't rate a mention in the Nielsen poll.

DOTA2
Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm
Castle Storm
Happy Wars
Guardians of Middle Earth
And maybe the new Criterion Need for Speed.

I'm honestly expecting 2012 to be one of the worst years in videogames for a long, long time.

Nothing that really gets me pumped, with surprises me. Assassins Creed III looks amazingly well crafted and I will surely buy it, and maybe I'll take a look at Halo 4, but beyond that...

Dark Souls DLC

Resident Evil 6 doesn't look too good, but I will buy just for Leon.

Unless they announce something good for Wii U launch, there's not much for me to play it seems.

Hawken. Incredible neo-city visuals and combat looks really intense.

Torchlight 2. I've been watching walkthroughs/gameplays (TotalBiscuit) of the beta and it looks like it could become my favorite game in the genre (PoE is too conservative in it's design for me).

FTL. I already know this game is awesome as I'm playing the beta.

Project P-100. The most fun, charming & interesting looking Japanese console game I've seen in a while.

Retro City Rampage. Not sure if it's actually going to be released for PC this year.

Assassins Creed 3 (Unless people say there is lots of that awful Sci-Fi. AC2 had too much of it. AC1 was unbearable).
Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm (If it comes out, although I seriously doubt it will).

That's about it.

Ugh, there's too much going on this year in terms of both hardware and software. I'm for sure getting a 3DS XL once Silver comes to NA, maybe a Wii U, and maybe the new PS3 (as my current one is on life support). As for games...

DS/3DS:
NSMB2 (I never miss a mainline Mario, no matter how bad they are)
Pokemon Black 2 and White 2
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
I might also get Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Paper Mario 3DS if they get good reviews.

Wii/Wii U:
The Last Story (I have my pre-order paid off in full)
Kirby Collection
NSMBU
Pikmin 3
Rayman Legends
Project P-100

Vita:
Persona 4: Golden

I don't see anything interesting on either of the HD twins this year. I'll still be spending a lot though. Anywhere from $450-$1400 on games. Fucking gross. I'm actually thinking of going handheld only next gen, as I have a MASSIVE console backlog. I mainly want a Wii U to play Pikmin 3 at this point anyway so I'll probably cave in once they show the new 3D Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Animal Crossing, or Smash Bros. *sigh*

I'm sorry wallet.
