Why this month?

It feels a little strange seeing big game releases at this time of year. Well, perhaps it’s not that strange – February is still a fairly dull, cold and wet month for many, an ideal time to sit inside and forget your troubles with a game.

Maybe I’m just suffering bus stop syndrome. It feels like I’ve been waiting bloody ages, and now Resident Evil 5, Street Fighter 4 and Killzone 2 all come along in the same month. Are the Gods of Productivity mocking me?

If you haven’t already, download the Resident Evil 5 and Killzone 2 demos available on the PlayStation Store (and presumably the Xbox 360 equivalent). Both are amazing and contenders for the most stunning looking game yet created award. It turns out we didn’t need to worry about Sony fucking up Killzone 2 – it really is triple A quality and seems to be the Halo beater it was bred to be. It even plays well on the Dualshock control pad, which is something of a bloody miracle for a PS3 FPS game.

I’ve only now just caught up with Little Big Planet too. Bastards.
