Pixel Count: Most Anticipated February Release

Time for some Pixel Counting!

January was a decent month for games: DmC and Ni No Kuni both landed with sizable critical acclaim, but other than those two, the month was bare. It was a good time to catch up on your backlog or even take a break for a bit, maybe read a book or two to pass the time. Two great games in one month is probably ideal.

Well, no more of that. February is here and it’s not “ideal”: it’s here to kick some ass. There is about a half-dozen worthy titles dropping during the shortest month of the year (and my birth month) and while the quality of a few may be in question, there is no doubt that us gamers will have a nice buffet of gaming goodness to sample from this month. Shall we take a look at the menu?

If you loved XCOM, Fire Emblem is just as hardcore with permadeath and tactical goodness but with a fantasy setting for a nice change of pace. For the horror fans, the Dead Space trilogy wraps up this month. I am a huge fan of the series and I will be partaking in that and I know Mitch is on board as well. Sly Cooper was one of the best platforming series I have ever played and while I definitely want to play this new entry, I probably won’t get it right away. Aliens is intriguing, but that one will require some stellar reviews to get my $60. I have no interest in Crysis 3, but Mitch already has it pre-ordered and he partook in the beta recently. Metal Gear Rising, from the Bayonetta team, has some potential for insanity and unintentional hilarity, but that one also will be a wait for reviews game. Finally, Etrian Odyssey is a series I have longed to try and from what I have read, this new entry might be the perfect one to start with.

In the end, my vote goes to Dead Space 3. Gotta kill them necromorphs. What say you?

  1. Um… Dead Space 3 or Crysis 3, I guess, despite the fact that I probably won’t pick either up for quite a while.

  2. Dead Space 3, although is it bad that I’m considering not getting it because of the achievements? I 100%’d the last two, but this one requires you to beat it on 3 different difficulty settings and one with a co-op partner. If I decide not to get it I’ll pick it up for the PS3 or something once it goes on sale.

  3. I keep hearing some incredible things about Fire Emblem. I’d really like to see more of it, even though I’ve never played a single Fire Emblem game.

  4. Crysis 3, mainly because I want to vicariously play it through maxed-out 1080p videos on YouTube. That game is purty.
