So it’s the last month of PS3 and PS Vita games. So sad! On the flip side, your PlayStation cloud storage increases from 10GB to 100GB. WHAT. Meanwhile Microsoft continue their weird staggered release schedule.
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (Available February 1 to 28 on Xbox One) – 8 bit tribute to Castlevania, this Kickstarted project has been well received.
Super Bomberman R (Available February 16 to March 15 on Xbox One) – it’s another Bomberman game. I think Bomberman has lost its way a bit. This does nothing to change that really.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue (Available February 1 to 15 on Xbox One and Xbox 360) – the 7th game in the series, taking naval battle gameplay from Black Flag. More sea fights, less pirate shanties.
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (Available February 16 to 28 on Xbox One and Xbox 360) – third or first person Star Wars shooting, where you play a force-user and run about light sabre-ing everything.
For Honor (PS4) – melee combat arena fighting. Samurai, knights and vikings square off. This game has evolved loads, lots of depth, good combat. A top game, and reviewed here.
Divekick (PS3, PS Vita) – the ‘final moments’ of beat ‘em ups – the last hit. Divekick has no health bars, and two moves; dive and kick. Simple. Addictive. Cool.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3) – classic sequel to the stealth franchise. The story is… weird. Confusing. Probably too much so. But a good game nonetheless. I think. Lots and lots of cutscenes.
Gunhouse (PS Vita, PS4) – part puzzle, part action adventure and part matching game. Crazy!
Rogue Aces (PS Vita, PS4) – flying shooter, where you must liberate The Islands from The Baron and his cronies.
