After a slow start to the year for games, things are finally picking up and February has some heavy hitters. Here are five titles you should be excited for in February. Oh, and we won’t make you click through 5 pages to look at the entire list.
The Order 1886
Admittedly, when I first saw this game I thought it was just going to be a pretty showcase piece for Sony. After watching the latest trailers, I was right on the pretty part but wrong on the substance part. Guns like the Thermite Rifle and the Arc Gun seem unique and new, plus whatever else Tesla will build for you. We’ve also seen that you’ll be fighting Half-breeds and Humans, but who knows what else is lurking in the shadows. The Order 1886 launches on February 20th.
The Legend Of Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D
I’m sure at this point most people either know what Majora’s Mask is or have already played it. The game centers around Link looking for Navi while trying to avoid certain doom from the Moon. While looking for Navi, you will have tons of side quests to do, items to find and of course dungeons to beat. The Mask system plays a huge role in the game and each mask will provide you with a different ability or effect you can use in the game world. Any Zelda fan should be hyped for this and you can pick it up February 13th.
Resident Evil Revelations 2
Last month we got to relive the horror that is Resident Evil with a remake done by Capcom at a reasonable price. This month we get a sequel to one of the better Resident Evil games of the last generation. For the first time ever in a Resident Evil game we get to play as Barry Burton. His daughter Moria will also be playable alongside Resident Evil veteran Claire Redfield. The story at the start has Claire and Moria being caught and dragged off to a prison island where they have to escape. Of course once Barry figures this out he is on the way to rescue them. The game is in episodic format and you can the first episode on February 24th.
I’m in the minority here because I didn’t play the Evolve beta so I don’t have that much experience with the game yet. Evolve seems to want to capture what Left 4 Dead did but with a 1 on 4 approach instead of a 4 v 4 match up. You will either play as the Hunters or the Monster. The idea behind the Monster is to evolve, get stronger and beat all 4 Hunters. The Hunters need to team up and play tactically to destroy the Monster before it gets to strong to beat. One glaring problem we might run into is that fact that certain Monsters and Hunters are DLC. Does that mean I’ll have to pay more for the best units? If you pre-order you still get the extra monster right off the bat and you can get the game on February 10th.
Monster Hunter 4
Man you want to talk about a strong month for the 3DS? Not only do we get a great Zelda remake but we also get Monster Hunter 4. The main objective of the game is to hunt monsters, duh! Hunting them is only the beginning though as you will soon find the game has a DEEP crafting system you will want to explore. It won’t take long for you to lose hours in this game hunting the various Wyverns and Tyrannosaurs just to get one item to craft that perfect weapon. Speaking of weapons, the game lets you pick from a ton of different styles so you can always find something you like. One thing I don’t like is that it is only coming to 3DS for now, but what can ya do? Monster Hunter 4 launches the same day as Majora’s Mask on February 13th.
That’s our list of games we think are worth playing this month. What about you? What games are you looking forward to this month? Leave us a comment below and let us know!
