February & March’s Gaming Line-Up Is An Epic Embarrassment Of Riches

"Looking over the release schedule for the next two months, it’s hard not to be blown away by the sheer wealth of eagerly-anticipated titles about to land.

"Packed-full of high-profile blockbusters and new entries in some of the biggest series around, it’s set to be one of the most eventful 60-day chapters in gaming history." (3DS, Culture, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I just liked the headline, but I also agree with the article. The next 2 months sees something for just about everyone and to top it off they're almost all for fans of existing franchises. Plus the platform division is great as well (which really does mean something for everyone).

Makes for a serious pain on the budget though so will have to pick and choose between all the different games. Not to mention many games are expected to be released around April or May as well (but not as many). Its like the Holiday Season part 2 (better for some)--good time to be a gamer.

Gonna have to tart with Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite and then choose between Aliens: Colonial Marines and Tomb Raider.

It's a great time to be a gamer.

Oh, and I forgot Dragon Born Skyrim DLC for my PC. Gonna be pricey. :(

My personal want list went from 9 to 11 with the release dates announced for Atelier Ayasha and Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory these past couple weeks...quite honestly they should have waited on those 2 since these are 2 crowded months. I'm having a real hard time deciding which ones to wait on since I really want them all.

I think the reasoning these months are so heavy is because it's dead of winter, and in the US people will start getting tax refunds.

One at a time!
smashcrashbash  +   544d ago
And that is just the stuff we know the release date for.I am crossing my fingers for an early launch of Alien Spidey, Puppeteer and Rain.

March is one killer month my wife hates me more each time a pre-order something lol. (considering most of them are collector's editions) XD
rainslacker  +   542d ago
So many cool statues and collectibles in some of those editions. Luckily I have a month after march for my LOU-Post Pandemic one, otherwise I'd have to my not get the cool raiden knife light.:)

It already going to be hard to choose between Bioshock Infinite and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance but then there is Sly 4,God of War Ascension,potentially Puppeteer and Rain and Crysis 3.And that doesn't even include Last of Us later on in the year. The only good thing about this is I don't have to buy them all at once and will have a lot of games to buy later.
ps3 best console to have in march.
Steelmanner  +   543d ago
I don't know about that the WiiU is backing some serious heat with the new Monster Hunter coming in March
rainslacker  +   542d ago
Luckily none of those will be gone from stores quickly. Some of the collector's editions maybe, but not the regular games. Double lucky Sony dropped the price of Sly 4.:)
j-blaze  +   544d ago
the games i'm getting...
February: Ken's Rage 2 and MGR
on March: Neptunia V, Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

can't wait!
snowman2149  +   544d ago
a lot of people seem to dislike the fact that you're mostly buying obscure games but whatever floats your boat man, Metal gear rising is a must buy though ;)
Hicken  +   544d ago
They're disagreeing because he's j-blaze. It's become something like second nature to disagree with his comments.

One thing is that he seems to despise Western developers, particularly Naughty Dog. Note the makeup of his list, for example, though there are DEFINITELY some noteworthy Western-made games coming out.
TheTwelve  +   544d ago
Sly, Kratos and MAYBE Bioshock for me.
r21  +   544d ago
Sly Thieves In Time, the 7 years wait can finally end soon :'D

aLiEnViSiToR  +   544d ago

He forgot fire emblem in his list!
Roccetarius  +   543d ago
Well, the only one i'll be getting in February is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Possibly Bioshock Infinite in March.

Nothing else on the radar for me this early.
Bumpmapping  +   543d ago

TheBatman_Fanatic  +   543d ago
Dead Space 3 and Revengeance for me during that two month period
STICKzophrenic  +   543d ago
With the various pre-order bonuses from Amazon and Microsoft Store, I'll probably be getting Dead Space 3, Crysis 3, Gears of War: Judgment and Bioshock: Infinite.
RuperttheBear  +   543d ago
I think I'll get these -

BioShock Infinite, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Crysis 3, Metro: Last Light, StarCraft II: Heart Of The Swarm, Rayman Legends, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Tomb Raider, South Park: The Stick Of Truth, Lego City: Undercover, Dead Space 3 and SimCity.

Can't wait. These next two months are going to be crazy. I got Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Bioshock Infinite, Sim City, Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Tomb Raider, and South Park: The Stick of Truth all reserved. After that, The Last of Us, Injustice Gods Among Us, and Rainbow Six Patriots (if it comes out this year).
