Five games to watch out for in January 2013

Begin the New Year with a bang! Take a look at five games we think you can begin the New Year with. These games are expected to hit store shelves in January 2013.

2012 is finally over and surprise, surprise, the world hasn’t ended. 2012 was an awesome year for gaming and we are sure you stocked up on a lot of the AAA titles such as Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, Halo 4, and more. These games surely kept us up a lot of nights to achieve that unachievable achievement, or to win that trophy that isn’t real, but is!

So, without further delay, here’s a look at five games you can take a look at in January 2013.


DmC is a reboot of the classic Devil May Cry game. Fans were sceptical when they saw the new re-imagination of Dante but we have played the demo of the game and we have to say that despite its difference, there are elements that keep it true to the original franchise. This means that the game will appeal to fans of the franchise as well as newcomers alike. Dante is a badass with no respect for authority. Caught between the real world and the daemon world he must fight to save the day. If you want, you can get some hands on with the demo of the game on PSN and XBLA before picking it up.

DMC will be available for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in the first week of January for Rs. 2,999.

We recently played Hitman: Absolution and loved it. You can read our review here. Playing the latest iteration in the franchise brought back old memories and what better way to enjoy the Hitman franchise than the HD remaster.

All the games are in HD and that will make it an awesome experience.
