Games to get in February

I hate to sound like a broken record, but holy crap there are a lot of games coming out this month worth playing. This is something like the fifth month in a row gamers with multiple consoles are going to have to seriously consider where they expect to get the most gaming bang for the buck. Good luck!

2nd- White Knight Chronicles (PS3)
9th- Bioshock 2 (PS3, 360)
9th- Dante's Inferno (PS3, 360)
9th- Star Ocean: The Last Hope (PS3)
16th- Ragnarok (DS)
16th- Socom- Fireteam Bravo 3 (PSP)
16th- Aliens vs. Predator (360, PS3)
23rd- Heavy Rain (PS3)

(Sitting with head in hands, weeping loudly) Why!? Why so many games all at once? I can't possibly play all of these.

Bioshock 2 is the biggest hitter this month, finally giving players a chance to return to everyone's favorite doomed underwater city, Rapture. One last week can't pass quickly enough.

RPG fans gaming on the PS3 have a lot to be excited about this month courtesy of Level Freaking 5's White Knight Chronicles and the "final" Star Ocean game.

I pray nightly that AvP for the consoles will be as awesome as AvP2 was for the PC. If it turns out to be half the game that was, we're in for a real treat.

And finally, two words: Heavy. Rain. It's more or less guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience and I for one can't wait to let myself slip into this dark, noir world in pursuit of the maniac known only as The Origami Killer. I expect this one to be one of those games people reference and talk about for quite some time.

For those rich bastards who can afford all of this and more, just hold tight. March is nearly upon us and, you guessed it, it's going to be another huge month.
