The lights are on
Even more than usual, this holiday promises to be an insanely busy time for gamers. Every year brings an onslaught of highly anticipated titles, but the upcoming launch of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ensure that things will be especially bonkers in 2013. With such a stacked lineup this fall and holiday, what games are you hoping to wrap up before the release calendar gets crazy?
Maybe you've dusted off the Wii U this week to play the great Pikmin 3.

It could be something else entirely, or something from your backlog that you've been meaning to get around to. Let us know in the comments below what the near future holds for your gaming schedule.
