Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – My pick for this month is Captain Toad. I throughly enjoyed the Captain Toad portions of Super Mario 3D World and can’t wait to see how it expands to an entire game. It looks to be full of classic Nintendo charm. I think it’ll be a fresh of breath air to kick off 2015 in gaming. My main concern with the game is how it’ll extend to a full game but I believe that it’s a great sign for Nintendo, who are looking to take existing franchises to a new level.
Dying Light – Left 4 Dead, Dead Island and Mirror’s Edge are all fantastic games. Dying Light, a game that seeks to combine all three in a survival first-person parkour shooter mash-up, sounds – and looks – pretty awesome. The Entertainment industry at large (movies, television and video games included) is saturated by zombie apocalypse themes and this slightly different approach taken by Techland ought to be watched closely. With any luck, it will be a game that successfully combines these gameplay mechanics in a high-adrenaline action game.
