The games of January 2013

January 29 (continued)

Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault Vita

Platform: PS Vita

Everyone's favorite Lombax and sidekick robot return to Sony's smallscreen in this PS Vita version of 2012's tower defense spin-off. Exactly like Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault for PS3, this handheld versions finds the intergalactic duo booting up planetary defense systems across their galaxy in an effort to safeguard them from an invasion by one of Quark's bitter foes. Unlike past Ratchet and Clank titles, Full Front Assault trades full-on platforming for a hybrid tower defense mission wherein players must strike a balance between eliminating enemy forces, rebooting planetary defense nodes, and defending their home base. As always, however, players will have an arsenal of outrageous weapons to aid them in their quest for galactic peace. Online multiplayer and co-op modes will also be included.

Hitman HD Trilogy

Platform: PS3, Xbox 360
EU: February 1

In the event Hitman: Absolution wasn't enough to satisfy your cravings for cold, calculated murder, Square Enix is releasing this Agent 47-three pack to keep your dark passenger happy. The pack includes Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts, and Hitman: Blood Money. As the title implies, all games will receive a high-definition polish, and the pack will ship with an exclusive art book depicting some of the most pivotal scenes in Agent 47's career.

    I totally read Ni no Kuni as "wrath of the lich king"

    Aww crap, too much is coming out this first quarter. Anarchy Reigns and DmC mean that £60 is gone within a week, and then there's Metal Gear Rising mid February. After that I'm still on the fence about Bioshock Infinite, and The Last of Us and... a couple others I can't think of right now... Mean that until June, I'll have basically no money whatsoever.

    Wow, I didn't think there were that many games coming out this month. Thanks!

    Some serious separating of wheat from chaff will need to be done in January!

    Debatable. HIGHLY debatable. Many will, and have, said that people like you are misled and need a knock in the head to come back to reality.

    In my opinion its the only best game in that list :)

    It seems January is going to be rather dull, Halo 4 was a disappointment, Black ops if full of 1337 zZDr0psho77ing QuiCksc0p3rZz and Skyrim dlc isnt out until after the ps3 issures are fixed, so thats like summer! Im growing tired as a gamer, im going to do something productive and worth my time like learning how to juggle or become a pokemon trainer or some sh*t.
  • BladedFalcon - January 1, 2013 4:37 p.m.

    Gonna depend a lot on the actual reception of both games, but I'm keeping my eye on Ni No Kuni, and DmC. Anarchy Reigns does interest me... But first I doubt it'll be easy for me to get over here, and secondly, I don't know if it'll stand on it's own as a single player experience.
  • slimjim441 - January 1, 2013 4:12 p.m.

    Ni No Kuni, maybe DmC, and a bunch of shit that don't matter. You're next, Colonial Marines. I'll be waiting.
  • 7-D - January 1, 2013 3:55 p.m.

    Anarchy Reigns?.. Maybe, just maybe? Though February is when the real Platinum action of going to kick off and I cannot wait.

    I just picked up a copy of Hitman: HD Collection. As of writing I've shot six cops and four civilians. In hindsight, I should have waited to buy it when it came out. This armed robbery has turned into a fucking disaster.
