The intense, dirt biking antics of the Trials series takes a futuristic turn with Trials Fusion. Renowned for its death-defying leaps, trial-and-error gameplay as well as its downright addictive nature, it’s a series that’s thoroughly earned its fan base – and more to the point, one willing to keep returning ‘one more time’ to finish its most unforgiving courses.

It’s become somewhat of a tradition for each title in the Dynasty Warriors franchise to receive a revamping not too long after its original release. The latest title, Dynasty Warriors 8 kept with the traditional format and received praise for upping the hack-n-slash ante once more. Of course, there’s always room for improvement so developers Omega Force have followed it up with Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends.

Alucard’s part in the Lords of Shadow 2 mythos takes centre stage in Revelations, the two-to-three hour DLC available now for February’s divisive adventure. Those who found the tale’s ending to be abrupt and unsatisfying will no doubt be disappointed given this download’s nature as a prequel, but at least they can take solace in the ability to play as someone other than Dracula since Mirror of Fate HD. Although a welcome change from the LoS norm, it’s worth noting that those unimpressed with the series so far will find little here to warrant a second glance.

Nippon Ichi Software has proven with Disgaea that even less savoury characters can be charming without losing their evil allure. Unfortunately The Witch and the Hundred Knight doesn’t quite reach the same level of love despite having fundamentally been inspired by the long-running series.

The saying goes, “Third time’s a charm.” Square Enix may be taking things a little too literal producing a third title, Lightning Returns – Final Fantasy XIII. Can the finale in the long-running Final Fantasy XIII series provide closure for fans and prove to be the best of the batch?

Dark Souls has a reputation for being brutally difficult, but in all the right way. It left a firm impression on its loyal player base for the frustration and satisfaction it delivered, through its rage-inducing but oddly fair difficulty curve. From Software returns with Dark Souls II with even more addictive gameplay that will leave you pushing the boundaries of your gaming ability, well beyond what you ever thought you were capable of achieving.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a spin-off of the Ninja Gaiden series, replacing Ryu Hayabusa with a new protagonist and stripping away almost all its ninja ways. Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z may have the Ninja Gaiden name, but none of the legacy from the franchise. If you were hoping Yaiba would be the game to write all the wrongs after the dismal Ninja Gaiden 3, you could be in for an extended wait.

In an era of reboots and series revivals, it isn’t much of a surprise to see Thief given the same treatment. Tomb Raider and Deus Ex: Human Revolution have both received glowing success and dare I say, been restored to their former glory.

Thief does well to repeat the same fortunes of its precursors, but has a few stumbles along the way.

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc has one of those quirky titles instantly indicating a Japanese origin, but doesn’t define what the game is all about. Unless you’re a dedicated fan who’s been impatiently waiting for a translation, it’s a fairly easy game to overlook on store shelves.
