The Games Releasing in January 2016

It’s a brand new year! Naturally, that means it’s time for new video games.  More and more games are being released every month. So many, that it can be hard to keep track of them all.  In lieu of that, I’ll be sorting through and sharing some of the games releasing in that month,  These are games that stand out to me and hopefully to you!  Lets get started with my picks for January 2016. I’m most excited to try Amplitude.  I never got the play the original on PS2 and have been waiting to try this.  The Banner Saga looks rad as well. That Dragon, Cancer has an incredibly moving story, I highly recommend you look into it even if you don’t play it.
