5 Reasons Why February Will Kick January's Ass

January was pretty good, but this is 2010, the best (expected) year in gaming ever. And while January was good, February will be better. Here's why.

Aside from #4, the rest is just filler

jamezrp3838d ago

Maybe if you don't have the money...

young juice3838d ago

the only filler i see is dantes inferno.

presto7173838d ago

I didn't find any of the "big" releases interesting. Feb. should be better though.

I am really pumped for HR and BS2.

I am not buying DI because I am saving that money for GOW3.

Mr_Bun3838d ago

Why is DI not getting any love? I played the demo and I had a blast. Yes, I'll be picking up GoWIII release day, but did no one else enjoy the demo (fun bags aside)?

heroicjanitor3838d ago

I would've bought it the day after I played the demo if the game was out(Decemeber sometime I think I played the demo), but now that a lot of games are coming I'm not sure if I'll get it, because I want ff13 and gow3 and heavy rain. It might have to be a rental :(

doeman3838d ago

i played the demo for DI too and had a blast. reviews have been solid, so why the hate? because it's a gow clone?


Chris3993838d ago (Edited 3838d ago )

Let me know how it is. I found the demo (both of them, played the 360 and PS3 version to check for differences) totally uninspired.

And the story was really choppy. I read foreign language novels and stuff like the Illiad, so it's not a comprehension issue, it just wasn't scripted very well. The flesh-stitching and random tit shots seemed gratuitous and the environments were bland. I also didn't find the character very fun to play. He was like a cross between Kratos and Simon Belmont, with none of the charisma of the first nor the finesse of the second.

If you want to see how a 3rd person action hero should move, refer to Kratos, or the extended KP Castlevania MOS trailer (they did a fantastic job with the modelling). Even Bayonetta's spastic strip-tease, while dizzying, had it's own "style". This game and this character don't seem to.

Darksiders proved that you can coin from a favorite (several favorites, actually) and still make it your own. Dante's Inferno feels like it misses the mark in this regard. This is a rental or bargain bin purchase for me. But again, let me know what it's like. I'd rather hear gamers' opinions than the "media", who seem to be totally off the map with their liberal handing out of 10s to everything under the sun and the subsequent roasting of other titles to balance the scales.

"so why the hate? because it's a gow clone?"

That is exactly the reason why.

Many PS3 owners are incredibly insecure and feel the need to attack any game that threatens one of their exclusives.

It is all very transparent, but they seem to think that nobody can see their true motives.

Rather sad, when you think about it.

SilentNegotiator3838d ago

And March will kick ITs for one reason....


MiloGarret3838d ago

I won't be getting any of these games, I can't be bothered to invest thought into them when I have ME2 and I have to prepare mentally for Battlefield and GowIII coming next month.

Myze3838d ago (Edited 3838d ago )


Here we go again with people that don't think before they type. Did it escape your mind that DI and GoW3 are both coming to the ps3. Many (not all, or even most) "fanboys" from other systems seem to bring up multiplatform games as if they are exclusive, and they do it all the time this generation.

I've never heard anyone say they are worried DI will be better than GoW3. I've never heard anyone that sounds like an intelligent person go so far as to say they think it will be better, because that's incredibly naive (for people unable to play GoW3) or incredibly ignorant (for people that haven't played the previous GoW games). I haven't played DI yet, other than the demo, but I'm sure it will be fun and a pretty good game. GoW3 would be a complete failure if it only lived up to those same standards (most people know it won't stop there). GoW3 was and is the only game released during 2010 that everyone knew would be a GotY contender. (ME2 will be, but most wouldn't have expected it to be as good as it is. Bioshock 2 from what we've seen so far for reviews seems like it will be a contender as well.)

As for this list, if AVP has to be on there, and the list is in a top 5 order. Move AVP to number 5, and it will be a good list. The ME2 thing I agree with if someone hasn't beat it (I have, but still worthy to make the list). AVP may be great (first one was awesome), but so far it doesn't look NEAR as awesome as the first one did before it's release, for the time when it came out.

"Many PS3 owners are incredibly insecure and feel the need to attack any game that threatens one of their exclusives."

you really think that's necessary? it goes both ways you know! if you don't trust me, just go into any Quantum Theory article and look all the 360 fanboys downplaying that game while NONE played it yet just because it's a Gears clone or so you guys said it!

360 fanboys really like to talk big about multiplats as they are exclusive! just like when they were touting the better version of Bayonetta yet not so many sold:

although this is just VGCHartz and may not be accurate but I don't think they missed the actual number by 500k, aren't they?? I'm just trying to say 1 thing here; if you like the game, support it by buying it! not just come here talking smack and crap!

Heavy Rain lol the game that flop is what yall looking forward to damn.

Bioshock 2 is the only game any gamer should be looking for in FEB.

Pennywise3838d ago (Edited 3838d ago )

Were you born stupid or devolve that way? Please tell me the average of 90 and 92.... come on moron, tell me.

EDIT: Way to stealth edit saying it was a 70 on meta.

dtrain213838d ago

Heavy Flop..... I rather watch a movie at the theatres IMO

Rockox3838d ago

I've got no desire to play Bioshock 2. The first one was good enough, in my opinion. No need to play the next one.

k2803838d ago

im getting 1,2,and 3 im so pumped for avp!

A Cupcake for Gabe3838d ago

yeah, I can't wait to smash a guy's face into a mess of brains and bloody goop. the 3 faction system looks to be a lot of fun...demo come out today on PSN!!! Yeah!``

BeaArthur3838d ago

For me January is better because of ME2, I can't get enough of it. Other than Bioshock 2 and Heavy Rain nothing on that list peeks my interest. I don't see how they can put #4 on the list as a reason "Why February Will Kick January's Ass" when the game actually came out in January.

jamezrp3838d ago

What, you beat Mass Effect 2 3-4 times already? Don't you do other things?

BeaArthur3838d ago

What the hell are you talking about? Did you even read what I wrote? Read, formulate thought then post.

MiloGarret3838d ago

I like:




But your version works too.

Unicron3838d ago

Already grabbed Bayonetta and Darksiders. Now on to Dante's. Ow my wallet.

Mr_Bun3838d ago

Ditto....except for Bayonetta....Rented it/returned it

jamezrp3838d ago

If my wallet could hurt any more, it would die from being bled dry. Green blood, lovely.
