Roses, boxes of chocolate, realizations of loneliness: sounds like it’s February. Another slow month for releases, but there are still a few noteworthy games. So, here are my top three games for list 31. First, the rules.
The game has to be released on at least one of the major systems (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch). The game has to be new, so no remasters or re-releases onto new systems. One thing I do count is a game either entering or exiting early access, but that game can only be counted once. If a game does have multiple release dates like Destiny 2 or GTA 5, then I will only count the earliest release date. The exception to that is if the game has a pre-order bonus of entering the game early, in which I will count its normal release date. Finally, it has to be a game, not a DLC. With the rules out of the way, let's look at my top picks for February.
3. Conglomerate 451
The newest game by RuneHeads is Conglomerate 451, a grid-based dungeon crawler about an agency tasked with cleaning up the streets of corporate corruption. I have never played a grid-based game before, but I think this game looks like a good place to start. I really like the cyberpunk look of the game, and the game has a lot of customization to it that looks appealing. Conglomerate 451 will leave early access on the 20th for the PC.
2. Zombie Army 4: Dead War
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is the newest entry into the spinoff Sniper Elite series made by Rebellion. The original trilogy was fun, but felt like the normal games but with zombies. This game, however, seems like an evolution of the trilogy. The levels look more interesting, the non-sniper combat looks more fleshed out, there seems to be more character and class customization, and the zombies look more interesting. The game has more personality to it compared to the previous three, and I think it is trying to be a step above another co-op shooter. Zombie Army 4: Dead War will release on the 4th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Dreams is the newest…release by Media Molecule of Little Big Planet fame. Dreams is a toolset that allows users to create whatever they want. The game has been out in a form of early access for some time, and some of the stuff that has been created has been really cool to see. Having the full release will likely get more people to pick up the game, which means more incredible creations to view and play. Dreams will leave early access on the 14th for PS4.
That is going to wrap up the releases of February. Tune in next month when I discuss the releases of March and forget to buy a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake.
