Three Games The Single Players Should Look Out For In January

OnlySP writes:

"Hark! A new dawn rises moving us closer to January and with it 2013. The year is shaping up to be an absolute blockbuster with a promising new game coming out almost every week of the first three months, plenty lined up to provide satisfaction later in the year and the widespread expectation of the earnest beginning of the next generation with Ouya, the Steambox and the next consoles from Sony and Microsoft all being released. It’s an exciting time to be a gamer indeed, but it’s always best to keep a reign on how much you’re looking forward to at any given time. With that in mind, we’re focussing on the first month of the year and listing for you the three biggest single player games for your consideration." (Culture, DmC: Devil May Cry, Hitman HD Trilogy, Industry, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I've been waiting for a game like Ni No Kuni since Dragon Quest VIII...

I really hope to see a remake or an HD version of DQVIII. I can't wait for NI NI Kuni, 2013 is starting off with a bang.

I've been waiting for a proper epic awesome JRPG since Final Fantasy IX.
Cannot wait for this game!

Theres been quite a few since 9 (although 9 is one of my favorites)

Try Persona 3 and 4 for instance, Dragon Quest 8 was mentioned before... (ff10 and 12 were good too)

Tales of Vesperia wasn't bad either...
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   718d ago
Yeah I love FFX and XII. I also love the Persona games and there have been awesome JRPGs, I just mean a proper Fantasy one without all of the futuristic stuff and a more medieval vibe to it.

I'll be getting both except DmC, that game looks like it'll give my PS3 herpes.

Hitman HD Collection - No brainer, def buy

Ni No Kuni - I've avoided as much of this games gameplay, screenshots etc as I physically can. It's Level 5 I love every RPG they've made (except WKC) so day one :)

DMC - I'll wait and see

WKC could've sported quality had they stuck to a single player experience. But alas, they had to venture into the online world and somehow degraded WKC a bit of quality.

I enjoyed WKC though, take note. However, it wasn't good enough to seal my purchase of WKC 2.

Here's hoping that Level-5 creates a JRPG that sports online but with the level of quality that can be seen in games like Demon's Souls.

I have been pulling my hair out waiting all this time for Ni No Kuni!

I bought WKC 2 just so I could play the first game. I was disappointed with all the on-line stuff and never plan to touch any of that, as a single player game it's not up to level 5 usual standard but it's ok.

I love WKC. The first game was great and ended really well but the second game could never pull me into the story like the first one did. The online was perfectly fine but the online community was so dedicated to it that unless you dedicated your time to it like an MMO then you were always behind, so I just used the online to do the crafting and speed leveling since it carried over to the single player.

Level 5 is a quality developer and a story by Studio Ghibli this was an instant buy for me. The demo was highly impressive so I can't wait.

I would wait on the HD collection. We actually do not know if it's going to be true HD, or the HD that was seen in Silent Hill.
VsAssassin  +   718d ago
Wow, only 23 days left before Ni no Kuni comes out! I have to file for sick leave!
LordMe  +   718d ago
Sony really should advertise Ni no Kuni. Studio Ghibli has a name and some major pull stateside, it could help the game out allot.
dorron  +   718d ago
Sad truth is Sony doesn't know a sh*t about marketing...

They have the worst advertising out there. If only they learnt a thing or two from Apple and Nintendo's advertising and marketing...

Ni No Kuni, the JRPG quality what FFXIII should of been.

Note: I enjoyed FFXIII, but after playing the demo I feel Ni No Kuni is 10 times better already.

Turn-based gameplay>pressing x over and over again.
The art is very cool!
