Games of February 2017



It's that time again!

This month has a few heavy releases from Nioh which we've been able to take several looks at with our final one coming in right before the release date with our time on the "Final Chance" Demo just last weeekend. Throwing in some more weight is the latest in the Musou releases with Berserk and Ubisoft's interesting versus For Honor that had its closed Beta just this past weekend.

Friday Feburary 3rd

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 - Road to Boruto Expansion - PS4, XB1, PC

Having come out a year ago, Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is getting an expansion with Naruto's son Boruto at the helm. Haven't picked it up in a while? Now's your chance!




Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World - 3DS

The awesome dinosaur is back for another of his solo adventures. Sticking to his newer and adorable yarn form Yoshi is being joined by Poochy on the 3DS later this week.




Monday February 6th

Nintendo every now and then re-release older titles in new packages at lower prices for anyone that's been holding out. This month is seeing two such re-releases with both

Kirby Triple Deluxe (Nintendo Selects re-release) - 3DS



and

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (Nintendo Selects re-release) - 3DS




Tuesday Feburary 7th

Nioh - PS4

It's finally here. After two Demos (Alpha and Beta) in order to collect feedback and offer DLC to those that completed the challenges, Nioh even had a Last Chance Demo just last week (Impressions incoming) in order to obtain the Marks of the Conqueror and Strong one last time. Well the waiting is just about over. Just one more week!




WWE 2K17 - PC

Having reviewed the Xbox One version back in November when it released on consoles, WWE 2K17 like many other titles of late is going over to the PC. Don't have a console and been looking forward to it? Now's your chance. In the meantime take a look at what Robert had to say!




Tuesday February 14th

Earthlock : Festival of Magic (physical release) - PS4

Earthlock has been out digitally for a little while now and is seeing a physical PS4 release. Having played it on the Xbox One I can say that it's a decent RPG that definitely has that PS2 throwback feel.




Ride 2 - PS4, XB1

Having already been out in multiple parts of the globe, Ride 2 is releasing in North America for some fast two wheeled riding with plenty of tight turns.




For Honor - PS4, XB1, PC

I was sadly too busy to sit down to the Closed Beta but on the bright side I've been able to watch my brother and other streamers play and For Honor so far is looking good. Still not sure who I want to fight for though...




Sniper Elite 4 - PS4, XB1, PC

The lastest Sniper Elite is coming out. Chris H. favorably reviewed the third entry and hopefully the newest meets his expectations!




Wednesday February 15th

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 + Arcade Game Series - PS4

Looks like the yellow ball like eating figure is coming back for another championship edition with some extras.




Thursday February 16th

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf - PC Early Access

Seeing another Warhammer release is an older one making its way from the mobile platforms over to the PC. Why Early Access however I'm not sure as it's been out for years now...




Tuesday February 21st

The Walking Dead - The Telltale Series: A New Frontier (physical release) - PS4, XB1

Nick enjoyed his time with the the start of the third season which is seeing a physical release after only two episodes. This physical edition contains the first episode on the disc with the season pass for the rest as they see their releases over the rest of the year.




Professional Farmer 2017 - PS4, XB1

I wasn't sure about this but apparently it's different than Farming Simulator? Leaves more choice in the field I suppose.




Berserk and the Band of the Hawk - PS4

Both Nick and I are suckers for a good Musou experience and after playing both Arslan: The Warrior of Legend and Hyrule Warriors / Hyrule Warriors Legends I have no reservations on Omega Force / Tecmo KOEI knocking another one out of the park with the Berserk series.




Halo Wars 2 - XB1

After several years 343 has resurected Halo Wars with this being the second installment into the RTS approach to the Halo universe. I am surprised to not see a PC release right away bring an RTS but that may come along sooner or later.




Tuesday February 28th

Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

While I've still got a Killzone or two to catch up on Breanna is getting ready to steal our main gaming space in order to explore this fantastic looking world with weird hybrid machines animals. I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays while I tackle Nioh and Berserk.




Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns - 3DS

After both Natsume and Marvelous went their seperate ways I've been having trouble keeping track of the possible farming possibilities. The bright side? There's now twice the amount of farming simulators available! I still miss Rune Factory though...




Torment: Tides Of Numenera - PS4, XB1, PC

Those of the lands of the PC have been able to already jump on this incredible looking game. In an odd twist, and a good one at that, Torment is coming over to the consoles. I'm looking forward to jumping into this on a PS4 as it's been a long time since I've played Planescape Torment alongside IceWind Dale.
