What software do I need to program an app for windows phone 8?

What software do I need to program an app for windows phone 8? I installed windows phone 7.8 SDK with my Visual Studio 2010 and now I have options to create Silverlight for Windows Phone projects. Is any way to program without silverlight? just as you were able to program for windows mobile 6 with visual studio 2008?
Thanks.

I installed vs2012 and create a windows phone 8 project but seems to be some kind of silverlight, it generates xaml files. So, can't I create windows phone 8 apps using windows forms?

There are no forms..They are now xaml files. But the templates that are given easily create all the different types of wp8 apps.
