Three Games the Single Players Should Look out for In February

OnlySP: February brings with it the end of the post-holiday release lull most years, and 2014 is no exception. Having been left with little to choose from for the past six weeks, publishers begin to kick the machine back into high gear and there are three very promising titles scheduled to launch over the course of the next month, among a number of slightly less exciting games. Those big three are:

Alex_Boro817d ago

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze should be there. DK Country returns is one of the best 2d platformers of all time.

thezeldadoth817d ago

i bet the disagrees haven't even played it. that game is amazing in so many ways and tropical freeze looks to be even better. As an added bonus, the guy that did the soundtrack for the SNES donkey kongs is back for tropical freeze.

hduce817d ago

Most of the disagrees on this site are from the haters that will not play anything that's not available on their favorite console of choice. These people campaign and go against games as if rival gaming companies that they like are actually paying them from their marketing budget. I am looking forward most to the new Donkey Kong Country game more than any that are listed. I thought the first Castlevania Lords Of Shadow had a lot of potential but it fell short of my expectations. Maybe Lords Of Shadow 2 will be a better game.

@hduce

I agree with the first part of your comment, but strongly disagree with the last part. Lords of Shadow is in my top 5 games of the generation.

But,hey, it's ok to disagree. I'm not going to pound away furiously at the disagree button or debubble you like so many people on this site do.

I am a strong SONY supporter because currently SONY makes the kinda games I truly enjoy and I simply love PS Brand.

However, Marios, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Zelda, Banjo Kazooey, etc...those games are all legendary. Can't hate on the games the defined gaming yo.

thezeldadoth817d ago

@hozi. Its ok to have your own taste in games, thats what gaming is about and having an opinion on them. Its not ok to rabidly hate on the games other people like, and wish the downfall of those companies. Why try to force people to have the same opinion as you and play the same games as you? Thats why this site has a terrible community.

Army_of_Darkness817d ago

I disagreed because I don't have a wiiU and don't plan on getting one just for that game. I'm sure it's good considering I enjoyed donkey kong country for the snes way back when I was in high school, but now I prefer LOS2 :-)

erathaol817d ago

I agree with both Alex_Boro and thezeldadoth, mainly cause I've heard only positive things about the new DK game.

If you have a Wii U, its worth checking out.

Beastforlifenoob816d ago

Really... maybe the disagress are there because they well "disagree with him". This is hard to grasp at first but it means people have varying opinions from person to preson.

(let me make this process easier for you by giving an example)

Two people one named Jerry and one named Tom. Jerry dislikes DK:TF but Tom enjoys it very much so. This is called personal opinion and is most likely why they disagreed with him.

Picnic816d ago

Or maybe some of the disagrees were huge fans of Rare's original SNES games and perhaps the new games doesn't feel as mindblowing now.

Tzuno816d ago

the SNES ones are far better that this new ones and by far.

That should be a fun game. Personally, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 and Thief have been on my most-wanted list for a long time.

psman012817d ago

I remember playing DK Country on my gameboy color back when I was 8 or so...so many good memories with that game!!

TheRacingX817d ago

Donkey Kong Country Tropical freeze should be there...DKC returns was a game of the generation and this one looks even better, the level of detail and animation looks amazing and even deeper gameplay. Not trying to take anything from the the other games....I want Castlevania too, it looks great. I think because its a Nintendo game, it gets quickly overlooked.

DualWielding817d ago

DK Country returns 3D is one of the best platformers of all time..... Vanilla DK Country Returns was an abomination that should have never existed..... really who came with shaking Wii Motes to do barrel roll, that killed the franchise until the 3DS version revived

Mr Marvel817d ago (Edited 817d ago )

DKC Returns was awesome.
One of the very few Nintendo highlights since the Wii/Wii U era started imo.

(Excluding 3DS though. Plenty of highlights there.)

d4sholil1817d ago

For the Super Nintendo days I would say definitely. Loved that series then.

CocoWolfie817d ago

yeah... im actually surprising interested in theif, i wouldnt say im too hyped but.. the deus ex studio behind it, the fact you can have multiple ways of finishing levels really interest me to want it the same way i wanted deus ex :3

Mr Marvel817d ago

...the fact that it's a new retail release for PS4.

That's the only reason I'm giving it a chance.

I was a big fan of a Dishonored though, so maybe I'll like it.

H0RSE817d ago (Edited 817d ago )

The original Thief games were excellent. Thief 2 is among one of my favorite games, and even today, remains one of the greatest stealth games I ever played. It didn't rely on character gimmicks or abilities, that eventually turned you into a "super thief" that could see through your opponents eyes, jump from rooftop to rooftop like Batman, or sneak past people in broad day light...

It relied on using the shadows and avoiding noise, along with using simple gadgets. It was a very "bare bones" approach to the stealth mechanic, that allowed for players to rely more on "natural skill" than relying on special abilities or even expectational training, like breaking peoples necks or martial arts. It put you in the role of more of a Thief (hence the title) than an assassin, so avoiding combat and even detection, was key. I'm hoping the new game stays true to this gameplay.

Moncole817d ago

Two of those are releasing on my birthday.

CrossingEden817d ago

NOPE, according to the laws of disagrees, two of these games are in fact NOT releasing on your birthday, DERP

nope111817d ago

Can't wait for Lords of Shadow 2.

DevilishSix817d ago

me to will probably be my last last gen purchase.

azshorty2003817d ago

fattyuk817d ago
