The gaming month ahead in Europe


White Knight Chronicles

As we approach March the games coming soon list start to look fatter and strangely more attractive. February sees the quite a tour de force on the PS3, with Heavy Rain, White Knight Chronicles and ModNation Racers all coming exclusively to the platform. While the X360 doesn’t have any real exclusive blockbusters this month, it still enjoys a healthy mutli-platform spree in the shape of Aliens Vs Predator, Bioshock 2 and Dante’s Inferno. Even last-gen machines get some love this month with the PS2 and Wii 😛 getting Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, I doubt it’s going to be as good as the original trilogy, but at least it won’t be as bad as Homecoming.

Here’s the full list of big name titles for the month…….

5th

Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War – Soulstorm (PC)

Dante’s Inferno (PS3/X360)

Disgaea 2 – Dark Hero Days (PSP)

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles – The Crystal Bearers

9th

Bioshock 2 (X360/PS3)

12th

Star Ocean: The Last Hope – International (PS3)

Half-Minute Hero (PSP)

Phantasy Star Zero (DS)

19th

Aliens Vs Predator (PS3/PC/X360)

Guitar Hero Van Halen (PS3/X360)

Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce  (PS3/X360)

White Knight Chronicles (PS3)

26th

Heavy Rain (PS3)

Napolean: Total War (PC)

White Knight Chronicles (PS3)

ModNation Racers (PS3)

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (Wii/PS2/PSP)

Way of the Samurai 3 (X360/PS3)

Blazblue: Calamity Trigger (PS3/X360)

Dante’s Inferno (PSP)

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (PS3/X360)

White Knight Chronicles is listed twice because not everyone seems to agree on it’s release date. Amazon and Gamefaqs list its release on the 19th, while Play.com bets on the 26th. I’d go for the safer 26th option.

Looks like a rather expensive month in gaming if you ask me. While White Knight and Heavy Rain are certain purchases, it looks like a lot of really good games are gonna be put on the back burner for now…which is really a mistake given that FFXIII, Yakuza 3 and God of War 3 are all out next month too. 😦

  1. Not sure Modnation Racers is gonna be ready, beta is pretty buggy. Looks like i need Dead Space finished before the 19th so im free for AvP.

    You’re probably right about Modnation actually – While a few sites list it at 26th Feb – Game list it at September and the main site just lists it at Spring 2010. I guess the dates a little bit up in the air for that one.
