Hot Titles for January 2015

Hot Titles for January 2015

It’s 2015, and another year of video games is upon us. This year we are going to try something different. This year we are going to point out some of the game releases we are excited about every month. That way, you can keep an eye on them, while also telling us what games you are excited for. Here are our picks for January 2015.

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell

Using the Saints Row IV engine, Saints Row: Gat out of Hell is like what Blood Dragon is to Far Cry 3 . It’s a fully playable independent game featuring Johnny Gat’s quest to get out of the underworld, and it looks to be hilarious. Its open world, filled with guns, and you’ll even get to test out angel wings. You also might be able to mac it to Satan’s hot daughter. There’s nothing about this game I don’t like.

Citizens of Earth

When aliens invade the earth, what can you do to protect it? Well if you are the vice president… of Earth… you round up everyone you can find and mount the most ragtag defense possible. This is what Citizens of Earth is about, and it’s hilarious. It’s very deeply inspired by the Mother series of games, the series that included SNES classic Earthbound . It’s quirky, funny, and filled with internet memes, and it’s a steal at only 15 dollars. If you are looking for something fun and innovative this January, think about picking this game up for practically any console or mobile device out there.

Dying Light

What’s more fun that the zombie apocalypse? Well… most things are really. However the zombie apocalypse gets a lot more fun when you can go anywhere and do anything. That’s what Dying Light is all about. It’s a free running first person zombie survival melee game where you get to explore the ruins of civilization, use just about anything as a weapon, and even bring 3 of your friends along in online co-op. It doesn’t quite take itself as seriously as The Last of Us , but it’s not as tongue in cheek as games like Sunset Overdrive . It’s right in the middle, showing off a ruined world, but still letting you have fun in it.

Life is Strange: Episode 1

Telltale has pioneered the genre of cinematic adventure games, but now Dontnod, the guys behind Remember Me are giving it a shot. This game, very much styled like an indie movie, features a girl who comes home to find that life has changed since she left for art school. She also happens to have the ability to rewind time. She can go into her past and relive her life, altering her future. The question is, will the future she makes be worse that the future she came from? Should the past be left alone?

Grim Fandango Remastered

We usually don’t recommend HD remakes here. However, Grim Fandango is a classic Tim Schafer game that everyone should play. This isn’t just a quick 2 year cash grab. This is a 17 year old game being revived for current day platforms. It’s a part of gaming history, and deserves a second look. If you like Double Fine’s quirkiness, you will love this game.
