Even though January is not considered a time to get excited about video games, as most of the time it is pretty low-key during the winter, this month might actually get you interested in going out and picking up one of the many new games available. Here I will talk about just some of the best games you have to look forward to coming out this month for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

“Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India”- The Chronicles series of Assassin’s Creed is pretty cool because it is like the regular Assassin’s Creed games but also has more depth and interesting plot twists. Fans of Assassin’s Creed all together should love the new game coming out on January 12, which is going to be available for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. “Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India” has a 2.5 Dimension side-scroller and it seems to be an above-average game title. Even if you did not like Chronicles China too much, this game is destined to be a better video game than that so give it a try.


“Gone Home: Console Edition”- On January 12, “Gone Home: Console Edition” will be hitting both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Previously, you could play “Gone Home” on the PC as it was released way back in 2013 for the PC gamers out there. “Gone Home: Console Edition” was previously nixed but it ended up coming back together with the 2016 release date. This is Fullbright’s critically acclaimed debut title video game and it is a first-person interactive storytelling adventure that leaves you breathless and feeling like you just witnessed the best story ever.

Capcom put out this survival horror game originally in 2002 for the Nintendo GameCube, and my how things have changed since back then. The “Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster” is going to give you more adventure, more action, more horror, and of course better looking gore in HD.
