The Weekend Hotness: Getting pumped for 2012

We still have a couple of weeks left before the new year, but it’s never too early to start looking forward to all the new games to come. What’s tickling your fancy so far?

This weekend, we still can’t believe that Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition is not a big prank, we hand out alternative end-of-year awards, the TtWaV remixes keep flooding in, a dating sim about disabled girls is around the corner, and Allistair gets kicked around for daring to review Battlefield 3 DLC.
