February gaming madness has begun, and in the mix of the biggest games of February, we finally see the return of the interplanetary fright-fest that is Dead Space; along with a new crime-management sim, Omerta, and the brain-scratching Scibblenauts: Unlimited.

Dead Space 3 – (8 February 2013)

Dead Space 3 finally touches down this week, as Isaac Clark has to battle dementia and some things that go bump in the night, as he touches down on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis.

Dead Space 3 isn’t as lonely as the previous titles were, as the third iteration introduces co-op play, so you get to share the scares with a friend. But don’t make the mistake of thinking the game will be any less terrifying.

While the game has supposedly shifted away from survival-horror and the crushing sense of claustrophobia to a more action-oriented shoot-fest with a friend, series developer Visceral Games is promising all-new Necromorphs, gigantic boss creatures, and even misguided zealot humans.

Omerta – City of Gangsters

Building games may be seeing somewhat of a resurgence, now that SimCity is making its long-awaited return early next year.

Until then, you can get your build on, as well as some gangster swagger, with Omerta – City of Gangsters, brought to you by the team behind the recent Tropico games.

Omerta – City of Gangsters revolves around building a criminal empire, and takes place in Atlantic City during the 1920′s.

Players will work to gain strength and influence in the city, by building illegal boxing rings, distilleries, and other operations which push the limit of the law.

The gameplay is comprised of real-time building mechanics, with turn-based RPG strategy elements in gunfights.

Scribblenauts Unlimited

Despite not being in the limelight of gaming coverage, the Scribblenauts series has to be one of the most unique and innovative franchises in recent history. The clever puzzle solving runabout is getting a brand new entry in the form of Scribblenauts Unlimited.

The series, which requires players to use their imagination and generate objects to help solve problems, is taking a new step, by allowing players to create customised items using the Wii U GamePad, as well as co-op multiplayer features.

The goal of the level will also not be so obvious this time, requiring Maxwell to chat to characters in the environments in order to find out what he needs to accomplish.
