Now Arriving: Games of January 2017

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2017 is treating you right so far and Santa (or your equivalent present bearer) gave you everything you wanted this holiday season.

While you’re undoubtedly catching up on your backlog, the new month means a variety of new games to check out even if it is January. While things remain somewhat slow this month, there are a few big names coming in the back half of this month.

Obviously, for horror fans, things don’t get much bigger than Resident Evil and with number 7 arriving this month, gamers look to be in for a treat. Interestingly enough, things are a bit different this time as the perspective has moved to first person as the main character appears to be trapped in a broken down house with a family who is clearly insane. Fans have already gotten a taste thanks to a couple of demos, but now it’s time to see if you can survive when the full game launches on January 24.

Not a horror fan? Perhaps the full and complete release of Hitman will keep you company or the gravity defying antics of Gravity Rush 2 will tide you over until the heavy hitters of February arrive. That’s a story for another time however…

The complete release list for January waits for you after the jump…

    Not much here, but if Gravity Rush 2 is anything like the demo, then I might just have to pick it up

  2. Resident Evil has been disappointing in recent years. I’m hopeful that 7 will change that.

  3. Abzu is going to have a physical release?? Nooo I can’t add any more games so soon in the new year! (haha)

    Although I don’t usually keep up on horror games, I can’t believe Resident Evil is up to number seven. Hopefully fans will like it; I heard the series had been falling pretty flat recently (like blackgamergirl mentioned).
