New Releases – February 2014
With the new year started, things start to get back in the swing of things as we prepare for March. What is March? It’s the end of the first quarter and if you wanna start the new year off on the right foot you gotta release something by then. Thus March has become “We didn’t get it done by Christmas” time. But that’s next month. Still, as we draw closer we see more releases. What do we see this month?
No clue what this is but the character designs look kinda neat.
Bravely Default (3DS)
A job system-centric JRPG for the 3DS that has recieved some high praise. Though it has recieved some mild censoring in the states, it still look pretty neat.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (PS3, 360)
Completely ditching parties altogether and focusing more on clothing changes, does Lightning Returns manage to make a good game out of the FFXIII series at long last? I’m still betting Time & Eternity is better but we’ll see…
One Piece: Romance Dawn (3DS)
A One Piece action game inexplicably released in the states! Hooray! …oh crap I forgot to preorder and now it’s impossible to find. Crap.
Earth Defense Force 2025 (PS3, 360)
Game of the Year 2014 here, folks! If you haven’t seen my preview episode, check it out. Needless to say I am super pumped about this game. Try and get the 360 one if you can though.
Ragnarok Odyssey ACE (PS3, Vita)
A “Monster Hunter Clone” based on the Ragnarok universe (as in Ragnarok Online). Was gonna try the original on Vita, but finding out there was an upcoming PS3 release so soon I decided to go with that. Fingers crossed for awesome.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (WiiU)
More classic 2D side scrolling platformer goodness for the game-starved WiiU.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (PS3, 360)
You know, I really hated the first game but I’ll give this a chance if only out of spite for a certain article.
Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (PS3)
I think this got bumped up. Either way here’s some Symphonia if you care. Me? I think it’s the worst game in the Tales Of series. Why am I even listing it again?
