Dead Space 3

This week’s game releases include a fight to turn the tide of evil with Fire Emblem: Awakening, the next installment to the North Star series with Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2, the continuing story of Isaac Clarke vs. the Necromorphs with Dead Space 3, the reunion of old friends and the weirdness of time travel with Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, and a third person FPS with Special Forces: Team X.

Fire Emblem: Awakening – 3DS

Be the hero who must drive back a dragon who can easily crush the might of entire kingdoms.  Fire Emblem: Awakening features a complex cast of characters who will aid the player in their quest to defend the land from the tyrannical rule of evil.  The relationships between characters will evolve over the course of the game, which in turn impacts how well these characters fight together.  Players will also be able to help friends in local multiplayer mode, as well as have access to new maps and challenges.  Fire Emblem: Awakening will also feature a significant amount of purchasable DLC that includes new classes, maps, and story elements.  Fire Emblem: Awakening is scheduled for release on the 3DS on February 4.

Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 – PSN/XBLA/Wii U eShop

Delve into the story that has driven the manga as well as the Fist of the North Star games.  Ken’s Rage 2 features a number of new characters that immerse the player in a variety of iconic scenes from the manga, as well as a few completely reimagined story lines as well as new skills such as sprint and dodge.  Players will be able to choose from over twenty playable characters, as well as team up with friends and go head to head against others in local and online multiplayer.  First of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 is scheduled for release on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live on February 5, with a release on the Wii U eShop on February 7.

Dead Space 3 – PS3/Xbox 360/PC

Continue following the dark story of Isaac Clarke when he must team up with soldier John Carver to find the root and cause of the Necromorph plague.  Players will face even deadlier enemies and more challenging circumstances; join up with a friend to save the future of the human race, or try to deal with things solo.  Dead Space 3 features seamless drop-in/dropout gameplay, an entire new planet to explore, and more ways to turn the tide of the Necromorph onslaught.  Dead Space 3 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 5.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time – PS3/PS Vita

Pick up where Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves left off: the gang has split up, but Bently has created a time machine that has caused pages from Thievius Raccoonus to disappear.  Bently must round up the old crew, or else their legacy may disappear forever.  Thieves in Time features a new time travel mechanic, as well as a number of playable characters and the sense of humor fans of the series have come to know and love.  Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3 and the PS Vita on February 5.

Special Forces: Team X – Xbox 360/PC

Acting as a third person shooter rather than first person, Special Forces: Team X allows for players to have much more control over their environments via the ability to create new maps as well as an emphasis on teams sticking together.  Players will also be able to customize their character, fight against more than just one other team, and there will be a number of new game modes such as High Value Target and Hot Zone.  Special Forces: Team X is scheduled for release on Xbox 360 and PC on February 5.
