Magical assassins. Two-dimensional plumbers. Japanese high schools. Those are just some of the nutty things you'll see in fall 2012's crop of eclectic video games. We've got big-budget blockbuster shooters, PC strategy games, and even a couple of handheld RPGs.
Here at Kotaku, we've spent a great deal of time playing and digging for info on what's coming out this fall. Some of the games could be good. Some could be not-so-good. We don't know. What we do know is what we're really, really excited about. So each of us picked one or two games we think will be great.
Here are the video games we're psyched to play this fall.

Antichamber: The game's creator calls it "first-person Escher." It's a puzzle game. It's using some very unusual, non-Euclidian rules. It blew me away in 2011 and is supposed to be out this year. I loved both Portals, and this is in that vein. I can't wait. (2012, PC/Mac)
