Video game companies seem to be aware of this fact, since a slew of new games are on the market for the second month of the year and can help you pass the time while there's a deep freeze. Thaw out those trigger fingers, since you're going to be using them a lot especially if you don't have a date for Valentine's Day.

Some of the best of the crop of the new video game releases for February 2013 are as follows.

Dead Space 3 lands, and with it, the chance to take down the Necromorphs. Avalanches, treacherous ice climbs and the general wilderness make for an adventurous mission but we know you’re up for it.

Also out is Crysis 3, which is prime material for those who like to blow stuff up in tactical fashion. You assess, adapt and attack, becoming the hunter while fighting to be the last man standing. Cool, if you crave victory but don't want to leave the basement much.
