Game Hype: Will you join the collective?

-Shovel Knight comes to the Wii U March 31.

 From former WayFroward employees comes a modern old-school title about a Knight who hits people with a shovel. A hint of Mega Man a dash of Castlevania make me can't wait for the future 3DS version

-Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc! comes out Feb 11 for the PS Vita.

It's a murder mystery game taken to a new horrible level. Set in the fiendish Hope's Peak Academy, you'll play as Makooto Naegi who must figure out whose killing your classmates who are all anime stereotypes. You'll be creeped out by the murders , but stay for the creepy teddy bear.

-Square Enix Launches Collective

Sounding evil, oh so evil Square Enix has launched the Collective. Not evil at all really, it's a community platform to show off games that could be picked up by Square Enix for help and possible distribution after a kickstarter program. Check them out here and vote on the ones you like.

Why Square Enix doesn't just provide the funding instead of having the winner start a kickstarter is a bit odd, at best it seems to be a way to get more coverage of the games.

-BioShock® Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two out March 25.

I'm mainly intrigues by the quote of Kevin Levine,  “In Burial at Sea – Episode Two, we are delivering a story that involves nearly every major character from the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite."

- Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry out Feb on PSN for $14.99. On PC, Feb 25 for $14.99

You play as Adewale, born into slavery on Haiti. He became a pirate and is know an Assassin. This is a stand alone title, you don't have to own Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.
