10 biggest games of march 2015

Which games hitting SA store shelves this month should grasp your attention? MenStuff gives you what you need to know.

March is here, people! And that means the gaming release calender is heating up as he head deeper into 2015. This month, there are some returning franchise favourites, along with some interesting new titles.

DMC: Definitive Edition

10 March

DMC: Devil May Cry was a highly praised but largely underappreciated title when it hit shelves in 2013. The series reboot of the popular Devil May Cry delivered rich, action oriented gameplay, sensational visuals and a compelling plot, and all of it gets a spit, polish and re-release on PS4 and Xbox One. If you missed it before or were clouded by bias towards the series roots then this is one to jump on.

Battlefield: Hardline

19 March

The latest in the Battlefield series takes the series in a bold new direction. With Visceral at the helm, the creators of Dead Space, you can expect excellent sound design and tight control added to the brand that is Battlefield and a new Cops & Robbers dynamic changes the typical Battlefield narrative completely. Multiplayer is of course the major selling point too but these additions stand to make Battlefield: Hardline are far more rounded experience than previous series entries. All remains to be seen when the game hits PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

Mario Party 10

20 March

Nintendo’s latest entry in the enormously popular Mario Party franchise is primed to take real advantage of the unique features of the Wii U’s gamepad. Including touchscreen functionality, unique mini-games that take advantage of these features and Amiibo support, this might be the Mario Party game to top them all. Amiibo specific modes, a new Bowser Party mode and more are among the highlights in Mario Party 10 when it releases for Wii U this month.

Bloodborne

25 March

Bloodborne is set to take those who love the look, feel and gameplay of the Dark Souls franchise, but want something a little more accessible and jazzed-up, so to speak. The game features many of the RPG-style gameplay elements that the develop will give players agility and speed that will come in handy when taking on hordes or horrific creatures. Bloodborne should open up From Software’s brilliant design and creativity to a whole new slew of players.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue (PC)

10 March

While many thought Assassin’s Creed Rogue was a “filler” of sorts for last-gen consoles when it released on Xbox 360 and PS3 last year, it proved to be the more interesting and entertaining title, as Assassin’s Creed Unity failed to set the PS4, Xbox One and PC alight. The game changes things up and throws you into the role of a rogue assassin who has joined the Templars, and it’s your role to hunt down the assassins. Pretty cool, right?

Resident Evil Revelations 2

20 March

Capcom has been taken a rather different approach with Resident Evil Revelations 2 – releasing the survival-horror in episodic instalments, but for those who want it in its entirety will be glad to know that the whole game is getting a physical release this month. The game will be set between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. Claire Redfield will be the main protagonist and Barry Burton’s daughter Moira will play a supporting role.

Ride

20 March

In September Milestone, the developer behind the MotoGP videogame, announced an offering that would “alter the concept of motorcycle video games forever” called Ride. We’re told players can take superbike, supersport, naked and historical two-wheelers through rider and vehicle customizing options and into “true-to-life racing simulation.”

Screamride

6 March

Frontier Developments’ rollercoaster game Screamride is a hard one to suss out – it could be a gimmicky cash-in or an innovative idea. Set in the near future, the game requires players to build their own custom rollercoasters that can be shared with other users. The game encourages players to break the laws of physics, rocketing their rides of death off the tracks and into towering white structures that crumble upon impact.

Final Fantasy: Type-0

20 March

In one of the biggest platform jumps we’ve seen to date, a PSP game will make its impressive leap to the Xbox One and PS4 consoles this month with Final Fantasy: Type-0 HD. The gameplay is reminiscent of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, with the player taking direct control of characters and taking them on missions and large-scale battles. Outside of the graphical improvements, the HD version is largely identical to the original PSP version, although the original’s multiplayer functionality was dropped, and additional difficulty levels were implemented.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

27 March

Borderlands is one of the most popular and well regarded franchises of the last generation. The Handsome Collection bundles up Handsome Jack’s story into one package including Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. A Gajillion guns, hilarious dialogue, loot galore and every slice of DLC packed in makes Borderlands: The Handsome Collection one of the most appealing packages in gaming and prospective owners can scoop it up on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    1. Bloodborne – 27th March
    2. Battlefield: Hardline – 20th March
    3. Mario Party 10 – 20th March
    4. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 – 20th March
    5. Zombie Army: Trilogy – 6th March

    It’s only 5 retail games I want this month. Final Fantasy is not for me, I had played Borderlands series and DmC on Xbox 360, Screamride is not for me and Ride is another not cup of tea for me again,

    At moment I plays Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Dying Light on XB1. 😀

      @starwars360:disqus Zombie Army trilogy will also be awesome. I loved DmC on 360, but I don’t think I’ll play it again on Xbox One just yet. Still loving Dying Light and the Order.
