Great episode. Still getting used to the new favorite games of the year format; kinda liked you picking your favorites of each console and whatnot. I think this format works a little better, though, since you clearly don't play all the consoles.
Anyway, I definitely get your reasons for being disappointed with Mass Effect 3, but I'm glad at least one of you had it in your top 5. It was definitely in my top 5, even if the ending was a letdown. And Wombat, you're right about those add-in DLC packs being extremely annoying, but I just see them as a reason to go back and play more. If I loved the game, fantastic, more reason to play. If not, I'm probably not going to even bother getting the packs, because I no longer have the game anymore. And I'm glad you guys gave Kingdoms of Amalur and Darksiders II some love, even if just honorable mentions. Fingers crossed someone picks up those IPs and does something with them instead of letting them fade away.
Would be very interested in hearing what you all pick as your most anticipated games for 2013 are, though. I was talking to a buddy of mine, and we have a few, but it seems like, as with last year, all my most anticipated are in the early parts of the year: BioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider, and DmC. If Dragon Age III actually comes out this fall, like BioWare seems to be leaning towards, I'll definitely add that to my list. Until GDC and E3, though, when firm confirmation will come, we shall see.
Sorry for making this long-ish, just wanted to contribute instead of just listening, for a change. Great show guys, keep it up.

Adding a last minute thought.
