A couple of awesome releases coming up this week that will definitely get your attention. One that I haven’t stop blabbing about is Life is Strange(link for trailer) coming out on January 30th with episode one. If you’re not sure yet about this game, give the Dev Diary 1 and Dev Diary 2 a listen. For the others, here’s what you’re getting for the week of January 27th, 2015:

Dying Light(PS4/XBOX ONE)

“Dying Light is a first-person, action survival game set in a vast open world. Roam a city devastated by a mysterious epidemic, scavenging for supplies and crafting weapons to help defeat the hordes of flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created. At night, beware the Infected as they grow in strength. Live to survive another day.”

Life is Strange, Episode 1(PS4/PS3/XBOX ONE/XBOX 360/PC)

“Life is Strange is a five part, episodic series that sets out to revolutionize story-based choice and consequence games by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present, and future. You are Max, a photography senior who saves her old friend Chloe by discovering she can rewind time. The pair soon find themselves exposed to the darker side of Arcadia Bay as they uncover the disturbing truth behind the sudden disappearance of a fellow student.”

Grim Fandango Remastered(PS4/PS VITA)

“Something’s rotten in the land of the dead, and you’re being played for a sucker. Meet Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death. He sells luxury packages to souls on their four-year journey to eternal rest. But there’s trouble in paradise. Help Manny untangle himself from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation.”

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sisters Generation(PS VITA)

“If your princess is a self-referential, fourth-wall-breaking RPG that skewers both the game industry and gamers in equal measure, then Hyperdimension Neptunia ReBirth2 is your castle! You’ll fight in free-roaming battles as characters known as CPU Candidates — the younger sisters of CPUs, who watch over nations. Using over-the-top attacks, powerful transformations, and more, these Candidates will have to step into the spotlight to save their sisters and the world of Gamindustri!”

Teslagrad(PS3/PS VITA)

“Teslagrad is a 2D puzzle platformer with action elements, where magnetism and other electromagnetic powers are the key to discovering the secrets kept in the long abandoned Tesla Tower. Gain new abilities to explore a non-linear world with more than 100 beautiful hand-drawn environments, in a steampunk-inspired vision of old Europe.”

Nihilumbra(PS VITA)

“Discover the beautiful world of Nihilumbra and join Born on his adventure to find himself whilst trying to escape from his inevitable curse. Born was created from the absolute nothingness: The Void. But somehow he separates himself from the black emptiness and appears in the world. This is where his long odyssey begins.”

Blek(Wii U)

“Blek is a unique game about imagination and personality. Everything you draw keeps moving – and watching your creations move is like watching magic.

The goal is simple: shape a line that collects all colored circles avoiding black holes on its route. There are no specific moves that you need to master. To every level countless solutions exist, from delightfully simple to exceptionally deep and complex, yet always elegant.”

That’s all for the releases this week. Grim Fandango has got a tone of hype, but some say the game doesn’t look remastered that must. Dying Light is probably the biggest game coming out this week and lots of people like the game. What do you guys have to say, are you getting any of these games? Tell us in the comments below!
