A Day-By-Day Guide to All of 2016’s New Video Games (January – March)


After years and years of publishers packing the September through November “Holiday” season with an unmanageable number of new AAA titles, we might get a much more balanced release calendar in 2016. But can you believe it all happened by accident?

Aside from the one-two punch of Fallout 4‘s E3 2015 announcement, and its eventual release on November 10th, no game felt safe… and more than a few big titles got pushed into 2016. So now we get to ring in 2016 with a release calendar that just might offer up something exciting all year long.

Xbox Store Today: Gone Home, The Banner Saga, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, more


The Xbox Games Store is now home to a quintet of new titles that are sure to please players of all tastes.

First up is the Xbox One launch of Gone Home, Fulbright’s “genre-defining story exploration game.” After arriving home to an empty house, players will be able to explore the dark corners and repressed memories of Gone Home from the comfort of their couch. Also available this week is The Banner Saga, a Viking-themed RPG from Stoic. The hand-painted backgrounds of The Banner Saga have made it a favorite among fans of indie games, and now Xbox One owners can experience the same thing, yes, from the comfort of their couch. A third indie title, Rebel Galaxy, has also been released for the Xbox One this week. Developed by Double Damage, players will become space pirates in Rebel Galaxy and do battle with other “outlandish denizens at the edge of the known universe” if they hope to survive.

Sliding away from the indie scene for a moment, this week also marks the launch of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India for the Xbox One. The second side-scrolling spinoff to the Assassin’s Creed franchise will transport the action to India in the 19th century as players will be tasked with reclaiming an artifact that is very important to the Assassins and saving your lover.

Finally this week, Hyperdrive Massacre is a colorful car combat game where players will hop in their “Space Cadillac” to do battle with all the other space cowboys, gangsters of love, and guys named Maurice… Wah-Wah

More information on all of these titles can be found after the break. (more…)

PlayStation Store Today: Amplitude, Rebel Galaxy, Volume for Vita, more


Sony has delivered the first PlayStation Store update of the new year and fans of Harmonix’s brand of music-based button-mashing should be very pleased, as the developer released Amplitude for the PS4 today. And in case you were wondering, the trippy visuals support an even trippier story… “Take a trip through the expansive human mind as you seek to awaken your comatose patient and expand her perceptions.”

Also available this week for the PS4 is Rebel Galaxy, Double Damage’s “swashbuckling space adventure” that’s filled with space combat, extraterrestrial exploration, and a bounty of space pirates.

Finally this week, Vita owners can look forward to Mike Bithell’s Volume. If you’ve already purchased the stealth game on the PS4, the Vita version can be yours for free.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new release) can be found after the break. And, as always, a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts are available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
