Top 7 Video Game Release to Watch For February 2017
Congratulations everyone, you made it through what is traditionally the worst month of the year for gaming. January is behind us and while it’s usually a very slow month for games we were actually very lucky this year. There were a bunch of great games released with the most notable being Yakuza 0, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 and Gravity Rush 2. Right at the end of the month we even saw Conan Exiles hit early access and any game where you can actually adjust the size of your man goods… well that certainly is something, isn’t it?
As we move into what is traditionally the second slowest month of the year we can consider ourselves lucky a second time! February is a monster and we’ve got a huge list of games that you need to be keeping your eyes on. From fighting Samurai, Knights, and Vikings to one of the most anticipated PlayStation 4 games yet, it looks like February has a little something for everyone. Let’s get into it, shall we?

Tell your valentine you really love them by sharing an intimate moment of shooting enemies in the testicles. The Sniper Elite series is back with Sniper Elite 4 and it’s bringing back the wonderful x-ray kill cam with it! Take out your enemies from a distance and watch the bullet break bones, rupture internal organs and more. It’s crazier than an arrow to the knee! Releasing on Feb 14 it brings enhanced support for the PS4 Pro so you can play it in glorious 4K as well.

Nioh – Sony Interactive Entertainment – PS4 (Feb 7)
Team Ninja is back to work their magic on the PS4 with the action RPG, Nioh.
