2014 is over and, like any year, it’s had its great titles (Shadow of Mordor, Far Cry 4, it’s a big list), its disappointments (looking at you, Destiny), and its outright bad excuses for a game (remember that Rambo game? Neither do I). The console war continued to rage, with neither the Xbox One nor the Playstation 4 giving in. With the year over, it’s time to make way for 2015. Here’s a list of new games you should keep an eye out for in the upcoming months.
Jan 20, Resident Evil HD Remastered, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One – Pretty self-explanatory, Resident Evil is now in HD.
Jan 20, Saints Row: Gat out of Hell (standalone title), PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One – Gat fights his way into hell to rescue the Boss from marrying the devils daughter.
Jan 20, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected (DLC), PS4, and Xbox One
Jan 27, Dying Light, Windows, PS4, and Xbox One – Like Zombies? Like running on rooftops and climbing buildings? If you answer yes to both of these questions, then Dying Light is for you. An open world horror survival game where zombies get faster, stronger, and all the more terrifying as the sun goes down. Keep running.

Well, too bad for those of you console users who said yes, ‘cause this is only for all those PC gamers out there.
Feb 10, Evolve, PC, PS4, and Xbox One – Think of it as a game of cat and mouse. Only the cat is a group of hunters, and the mouse is an evolving monster that gets bigger and more powerful as the game goes on. The best part?
