The List - February 2012

PC games worthy of mention for this month, ordered by interest. (Monthly US releases are only estimated, game may end up all hype and really suck)
The List kicks off for 2012 ...slowly.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - ARPG - Fantasy
A new single player RPG license from EA.  Story by R.A.Salvatore.  Could this be a ARPG with a plot?  Also, Ken Rolstons' 1st RPG since Morrowind and Oblivion.  We don't see this very often, so gotta give it a chance.

Fallout: New Vegas: Ultimate Edition - RPG - Post apocalyptic - Bundle
A clear sign that there will be no more Fallout NV DLCs.

MS: Flight - simulator
Microsoft changes the formula, by making this game free-to-play.  Options available to purchase additional planes and locations. Also important to note, the word "simulator" is no longer part of the title.

Aerofly FS  - simulator
Yep, 2 Flight sims in the same month.   Aerofly focus is on Switzerland, and it looks better then MS: Flight.

The Darkness II - Shooter - Horror
Noteworthy because the 1st was not available for PC.  Could be a sign 2K will be banking more on the PC.

Cannon Fodder 3 - Arcade
Only significant to those that remember the original
