Far Cry 3 and Dishonored... but I doubt I'll buy either one of them this year; I'll rather wait for a proper sale, and possibly updating my computer next year. Staying at least a year or two behind the wave really saves money and makes for less hardware woes, and I already have a long wishlist of earlier stuff I haven't bought because of lack of time.
On the other hand, I've been itching for GW2 (never played a MMO before), but I'm not sure about it.
Bordering of the Lands, part duex
Totally looking forward to:
Dishono(u)red (not British myself, but I agree on the spelling)
War of The Roses
Omerta (thanks VodKerr, loved Gangsters back in the day)
Kind of looking forward to, but might not play:
BG: Enhanced edition
All backers got a key for preaccess. I've been playing for some days.

Everything else seems kinda bland and just more of the same, honestly. If you like it, it's fine, but I don't think I want to play the exact same games I've already played but with better graphics.
Edit: Oh yeah, Planetside 2 also looks pretty fun.
I can't wait for FTL being released the day after tomorrow! I'm prepared to throw any amount of money at the screen as soon as I can.
Also, Hotline Miami, and Planetside 2, anticipation wise.
Natural selection 2
That's it I think, pretty lean times.
Dishonored is the only game I might buy at full price, but it depends on the WOT.
Otherwise I have enough games to keep me happy until the Christmas sales.
Definitely XCOM: Enemy Unknown, mostly because I haven't played the original XCOM. Assassin's Creed 3 looks good but has too many DLC bits and bobs for my liking. And of course, Torchlight II is yet to be released... soon.
Cautiously looking forward to X-Com Enemy Unknown (Wont buy it on release)
Lookingforward to Xenonauts (if thats released this year?)
And Eador: Master of the broken world.
I think thats it for this year :(
To poach my own list from the "boring autumn" thread:
Hegemony: Rome (I'll preorder this the moment I can)
CK2: Legacy of Rome (ditto)
Occult Chronicles (ditto)
Shattered Haven (ditto)
Drox Operative (already preordered with the beta)
Torchlight 2 (ditto)
AI War: Ancient Shadows (ditto)
Alea Jacta Est (preordering soon)
and then I'll add in Borderlands 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 in the AAA space.
I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but that's more than enough anyway!
No love for the new X-Com, vin?
It's a subject of interest, but I've not been following it very closely. I'm mostly waiting on word-of-mouth post-release. AAA strategy games haven't been panning out so well lately.

Borderlands 2 and Dishonored.
Already have a group of about 6 who are going to be in Borderlands and Dishonored will be there when I feel like being a computer hermit again.
The end of 2012 and possibly half of 2013 is already covered by those two games alone.
If Borderlands 2 is as long as the first one, you would barely make it to October. 100% quests with achievements in almost 4 days with my coop buddy.

Heck, EA is only about two hours away from me, so breaking in should be convenient as well!
My first Borderlands playthrough took, IIRC, about 60 hours. Another 30 or so with DLC.

I'm only looking forward to three games; Clockwork Empires, Prison Architect and Planetary Annihilation. And as they won't be released this autumn/winter, I'm just looking forward to more information on these games.
Ours was shorter, around 30, but we are a veeeeery efficient run&gun team.
