Darksiders 2, Borderlands 2, Resident Evil 6, Dishonored, AC3, Hitman, and Bioshock. Sorry wallet but it has to be done.
It's not up there, but Darksiders II August 14th I believe. Oh, and Fall of Cybertron is going to be great.
RE6, XCOM, Dishonored, Halo 4, Bioshock.
Man ASSASSINS cred is lookin goood
Epic Mickey 2 has a release date of October 1
Wii U is first! A couple of launch games like Killer Freaks and another to be named later. Resident Evil 6 and Halo 4 are two of my most anticipated, since Colonial Marines and Bioshock Infinite are delayed.
Assassins Creed 3, Resident Evil6, Skyrim DLC and Luiguis Manion 2.
thanks for puting up the fall of cybertron date up, also for everyone else to know xcom(the fps) as well as the new devil may cry got pushed into 2013 as well.
Honestly I don't think there is enough love for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. I think it really does look like an improved and amazing game.
It's going to be a great Holiday season.
Damn GI no love for fighting games? You forgot about Tekken Tag Tournament 2 coming out this September.
Borderlands 2 for me and AC3 and COD:anything for my husband.
I didn't think I'd buy another CoD game, but Black Ops 2 actually looks interesting lol. I also can't wait for Halo 4, Medal of Honer: Warfighter, Assassin's Creed III, and Boarderlands 2 :l of course I'm probably not gonna be able to get all of them lol and who knows what else has yet to appear. C'moooon income...
Already have dishonored pre-ordered, along with Halo 4 and Assassin's Creed III which I already have both paid off in full. Hoping to see the new Tomb Raider in there somewhere soon. Also have to get into Bioshock so I can be ready for Infinite.
How come you guys didn't mention Tekken tag 2 which supposedly comes out on september or October for consoles.
