January 2012 has been something of a damp squib. Last year we were knee deep in game of the year contenders such as Mass Effect 2, LittleBigPlanet 2 and Dead Space 2. This year we delved into, erm, Zack Zero?
But as February approaches, so does change. Seriously, if you haven't already pored over February and March's insane release schedule, we suggest you go take a look now. It's crazy.
While January's been a disappointment, Capcom's hoping to close the month with a bang. In a post on Capcom Unity, the Japanese publishers promised a "plethora of very exciting new details" about upcoming role-playing game, Dragon's Dogma.
Capcom announced Dragon's Dogma last year, only to let it completely drop off the map. Seriously, other than the inclusion of an ambitious character sharing mechanic — which allows you to recruit player created NPCs into your own world — we couldn't tell you a single thing about Dragon's Dogma.
That's probably not a good thing for a game (supposedly) due out in March.
