January 2013 Video Game Release Dates
So December was a bit naff for games, not a single one worth mentioning. Luckily January is a little better and gets 2013 off on the right foot, though here still isn’t much due. Just as well really – we don’t have any money left.
11th January 2013
Xbox 360, Playstation 3
Set in the post-apocalyptic future, this is an over-the-top close combat fighting game, set in a massively open and fantastical world. Pick from an imaginative mix of human and cyborg characters and set out on a multiplayer melee where anarchy reigns. With a diverse range of multiplayer modes on offer, Anarchy Reigns pits players against each other in a variety of team or individual versus battles.
15th January 2013
DMC Devil May Cry
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3
Detailing Dante’s early years and set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC Devil May Cry will retain the stylish action, ﬂ uid combat and self- assured protagonist that have deﬁ ned the iconic series but inject a more brutal and visceral edge. The Dante of DmC is a young man discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel. This split personality has a major impact on gameplay with Dante being able to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword on the ﬂy to dramatically affect both combat and movement.
24th January 2013
As my time with Strike Suit Zero came to an end, I couldn’t help but feel that I wanted more time with the game. I wanted to fully test out the other ships, work out what my favourite weapon fittings were, find all the game’s little secrets. Alas, time was against me, and I had to stop playing and start writing. I really liked Strike Suit Zero, I was pleased to see that the game wasn’t all about lush visuals, and that it had some tactical depth to it.
25th January 2013
