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. After a decade long hiatus, Master Thief Garrett returns with familiar stealth gameplay mechanics, along with a few new surprises in his bag of tricks. 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.

Ryse: Son of Rome Review

I felt rather indifferent when I first heard about the Xbox One exclusive, Ryse: Son of Rome. Perhaps it was the misspelling of ‘rise’ that just didn’t resonate with me on some level.

I had a chance to get up and cosy with Ryse at EB Games Expo last year and before I even laid hands on the game, I was told by a booth attendee what I was about to play was an alpha build. It didn’t help Ryse‘s cause as it was a bug-ridden and overly forgettable experience.

The dynamic duo return in Ratchet and Clank: Nexus (or Into the Nexus for the USA), the epilogue to the well-received PS3 Future trilogy. As a budget title releasing alongside the launch of the PlayStation 4, you’d be forgiven for expecting Nexus to be a half-hearted effort. Thankfully, it’s back to greatness for the beloved heroes, undoing the pain of recent instalments that strayed too far from the winning formula.

The Xbox One has plenty to live up to. As the successor to the Xbox 360, Microsoft’s most successful console to date, there’s a lot riding on the shoulders of the Xbox One to supersede its outgoing predecessor.
