Following yesterday's announcement of a Tomb Raider bundle, Microsoft has shown off another deal.
We're a little over half way through the year and it's easy to see that 2015 is shaping up to be one of the best years gaming has seen in a long time. Amidst declarations against remasters and some disrespectfully bug-laden launches (Assassin's Creed Unity on every platform it touched), 2014 was certainly a hard year for a lot of people to get through.
With a new year comes renewed promise, and the first half of 2015 has seen a landslide of wonderful gaming experiences. On top of that, with games like Fallout 4, Mad Max, Star Fox Zero, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Transformers: Devastation releasing in the months ahead (as well as many others), it's clear that this is the year that many of us have been waiting for.
It's an exciting time to be playing and enjoying videogames. Without further ado, here are the 9 games that have best defined 2015 so far (in order of release). Agree or disagree, we'd love to see your opinion in the comments below!
It’s not very often that a game so genuinely artistic and creative as Ori and the Blind Forest comes along. Moon Studios, a small indie studio in the employ of Microsoft, has developed an emotional tale and a breathtaking world that is backed by tough as nails, yet satisfying gameplay. Whereas most games will hold your hand and guide you through a majority of the game, Ori throws you into the fire immediately, allowing you to learn from your mistakes. Ori has the perfect balance of artistic beauty, emotional draw, and intense gameplay mechanics.
You will be able to play the beautiful 2D platformer from Moon Studios, Ori and the Blind Forest, on March 11, 2015. The game will release as a downloadable title on Xbox One and PC, but a Xbox 360 version is in the works. The Xbox 360 version does not have a release date, but is scheduled to launch in 2015.
