    If BlazBlue has it's own list that would certainly be a pick up. Skulls of the Shogun shall be mine!

    Really hoping that the titles here that are duplicates will be stacks. Will snap-buy most of them if they are.

    I came here to post that post verbatim, full caps and all!!

    Easily the most exciting game on the list!! I wonder if they are adjusting it for a keyboard and mouse (hopeful) or requiring the Kinect For Windows.

    it cannot require kinect as far as I am aware due to them having to work all with touch controls
    due to it working on windows 8 rt tablets as well

    Win 8 is fail waiting to happen. I'm really hoping Sony steps it up with the PS4. So tired of giving M$ money when all they do is treat us like cash pinatas.
    Do you own any Apple products?
