January Releases

It’s time for the monthly video game releases for January. Not a ton of killer titles, but Burnout Paradise is great way to start out the year. Advance Wars on the DS also will probably be added to my collection. Take a look. Think you’ll pick anything up this month?

Rainbow Island: Revolution


  1. You forgot to list Savage 2! Of course, I don’t blame you. That game has been suffering from poor marketing since the original.


  2. I’m interested to see how NitroBike, No More Heroes, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and Endless Ocean go. I don’t think that any of them will be particularly brilliant but still great games.

    I think that Burnout will probably be the best game of the month.

    Rainbow Island: Revolution is just a port of the PSP game, right? Or the other way around.

  3. My son and I have put almost 20 hours into the Burnout Paradise demo.

    It’s reserved now.

  4. @Alex – Magic wands and Miniguns? I’m there! I hadn’t heard of Savage before, so thanks for pointing that one out!

    @Daniel – No More Heroes is getting decent reviews, so I’ll definitely be checking that one out.

  5. Yeah, I’m not too sure about No More Heroes. After years of anticipation for Killer 7 I was ultimately let down with it’s gameplay. Although NMH looks to be an improvement, its still style over substance. Probably worth the money but I don’t think that I’ll pick it up.

    No More Heroes has style AND substance! Killer 7 was crap, looked cool, wasn’t any fun. No More Heroes looks cool (not AS cool as Killer 7) but is really fun. the combat is awesome, the overworld is a little lacking, but the missions and boss fights are AWESOME.
