6.) Skullgirls - Capcom has lost it's way, but it's nice knowing that as we move into the Aztec end days, there are developers who remember how fighting games are supposed to act before the days of developers acting like rock stars and trolling their active fanbase. Skullgirls looks like it's taking the fighting genre and doing absolutely everything every fan wanted. It's super beautiful, the character design is quirky with a lot of cute fanservice, each character is wildly diverse, preventing a lot of, "Shoto" bias, and the fighting engine works in such a way that it allows seasoned veterans of fighting games to really try and exploit it, but never keeps newer players from getting too overwhelmed. Skullgirls is quickly shaping up to be the game I wanted Marvel Vs Capcom 3 to be, and that is tremendously exciting.

5.) SSX - This remake is looking fantastic, and the last trailer released made me go from being completely cold and cynical about it, to pre-ordering it immediately.

4.) FEZ - This game is going to come out you guys, and I'm going to play the crap out of it. I played a little of it at PAXEast last year and thought it was totally stellar. It's been given more than a year to cook, so I'm really interested to see where they go with it

3.) Mass Effect 3 - I feel like I'm the only one not crying and moaning and saying "ooh woe is me" concerning the stuff that's been shown about this game. I just want a good continuation from 2 and a nice tidy conclusion to the story and I'll be happy. Shepard needs to finish the fight.

2.) Syndicate - If I'm going to play a grimdark future shooter, I want to play a grimdark future shooter that's more along the lines of the cyberpunk style that I like. Dues Ex 3 was extremely good (until that ending...or THOSE ENDINGS rather) and I hope syndicate can keep that cpunk flavor fresh and hot. I'm also looking forward to XCOM in the same light, especially now that a proper sequel has been announced so purists can get off my ass about even thinking about playing that game.

1.) Bioshock Infinite - The likelihood of this game even being released this year is pretty slim, but from what I've been shown, I cannot wait to play this game. I have total faith in Ken Levine's team to transport me to another world that is both beautiful and alarmingly disturbing. Super interested in what's to come. I just hope they figure out their endings a bit sooner this time.

Special note: Anarchy Reigns, Soul Calibur 5, Asura's Wrath
