With the festive hiatus having drawn to a close, we now turn our attention towards the games of 2015. It’s set to be a big year for us gamers with names such as Uncharted 4, Halo 5, and The Division being thrown about among the barrage of regular annual sequels and many other yet-to-be-seen titles. Although we’re pretty far off the exciting end-of-year rush there is still plenty to look forward to this spring.

Leading the charge this week we have Resident Evil HD from Capcom, releasing on both current and last gen hardware. Weighing in at just over 3GB and with a price-tag of £15.99, this isn’t just a dolled up version of the PlayStation original. Although it may essentially be a remake of a remake, that hasn’t stopped the game from scoring high among critics already. Keep an eye out for our very own review tomorrow.
Elsewhere, we have a few more digital titles arriving on Sony and Nintendo consoles, including civil war strategy game Ironclad Tactics as well as Citizens of Earth. Also launching this Wednesday is Nosgoth, which will finally be going into open beta. To veteran gamers that name should sound familiar as it was the fictional world in which the popular Legacy of Kain series took place. Sadly, this isn’t the next Soul Reaver or Blood Omen, however. License holder Square Enix and SARPBC developer, Psyonix, have taken a completely different direction with this Gothic, online team-based shooter.
Finally, on Friday, we have a Saints Row double whammy, courtesy of the upcoming Gat out of Hell expansion and Re-Elected version of the series’ fourth numbered instalment. With a crucifix held in his outstretched fist, Aran braved the new expansion in yesterday’s review, giving the bonus campaign an average 5/10. Despite its zany premise, he said the expansion lacked character as well as franchise’s trademark fun factor.
