Good picks!

Then again, last year's #1 didn't fare so well.

The Harebrained Schemes web site says the "game will be available for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS tablets, and Android tablets". We should be okay.

$15 for the basic game and editor is pretty sweet.

Nice picks. Waiting for all of them but Southpark.

Shadowrun returns was on Kickstarter stating
Shadowrun Returns brings back one of our most original & cherished game settings as a 2D turn-based RPG for tablets & PC

I can agree with all the games on there

If you don't stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front.

Good results. This I like! (South Park RPG -not so much)
This was a tough one tough. Lots of great games and just a few choices to make for voting.
If only we can play them already.

I misread this line - "It is the only game from the top 3 that will not only be released on a PC, but is scheduled to be released also on Mac, iPad and Android."

I thought it said that Shadowrun Returns would NOT be on the PC.

That said, the statement is STILL wrong. "Update #6: We just made our next major milestone, thanks to you all, which means more content plus a Mac and Linux version."

Mac is not PC only.

Mac is not PC only. Wasteland 2 is Windows, Linux and Mac.

Great, somebody actually reads those lines
Changed them, just for you.

Computer n. A machine which flawlessly performs the instructions it is given, no matter how flawed those instructions may be.

Well, clearly I didn't read them too well the first time.

Divinity: Original Sin is my most anticipated game of this year by a country mile, but all except South Park look very good, could end up being a damn good year.

Links to the screenshots for W2 and SR appear to be for Risen 2 and KoA from last year. Should be a good year indeed.

Got no interest in the southpark game, but the others all look good and promising. With any luck, '13 will be a stellar year for rpgs.

I'm definitely looking forward to Wasteland 2. Shadowrun Returns sounds like it could be a great game. I won't be giving Larian any more chances, though.

Ugh.

Then again, I've finally got time to replay the NWN series + Alpha Protocol + New Vegas, and perhaps even Mass Effect or Gothic.
