LittleBigPlanet 2
Developer: Media Molecule
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Not only was the first installment the happiest game you ever played, but quite possibly the best platformer for the Playstation 3. LittleBigPlanet 2 boasts even more adventures for Sackboy, with the addition of a grappling hook, racing/rpg/puzzle levels, and an enhanced look make the sequel a big step up for the series.

PS3, Xbox 360
Developer: Feelplus
Publisher: Square Enix

Mindjack is a new IP gracing consoles. It's almost like a combination of The Matrix and Minority Report, with over the shoulder shooter action to boot. But hey, anything with super cyborg gorillas is worth a look.

January 25th

Dead Space 2
Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Developer: Visceral Games
Publisher: Electronics Arts

If it is anything like its predecessor, this will be the game to watch for this month. The first installment boasted plenty of scares and a haunting environment. The second once again puts you behind Isaac, the lone survivor from the first installment as he is picked up after his encounter. Unlike the first game, Isaac is now twice as messed up in the head, adding hallucinations to the already disturbing environment. There will be new weapons, bosses, environments, and a strangely familiar multiplayer.
