Top 5 Anticipated Games of 2014

I was thinking of making a top 10 list but realized I am not really anticipating that many games this year. So here are the top 5 I am anticipating in 2014, plain and simple. Let's get to it!


Set in an alternate 1960's, The New Order seems like pure Nazi-sploitation from the get-go and definitely has my attention. The game play also seems like ridiculously old school fun! Definitely excited for this game, not to mention pre-ordering it grants you beta access for Doom 4! I am intrigued by how you can interact with cover in this game and it seems like it's gonna be a fun FPS that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's pure exploitation and knows it.


Definitely excited about this. Borderlands 2 is pretty much my favourite game of all time at the moment and having it on a handheld is going to be pretty awesome and was my reason for getting the PS Vita to begin with. And of course, being able to play it locally with anyone without the need for a PC LAN is also a good thing.


With Aliens: Colonial Marines being such a flop for SEGA, let's hope they can set things straight with Isolation, which seems to harken more back to the first movie's space terror. So far it seems to be set as a straight up survival horror game, which arguably suits a game based on the first movie. Definitely excited to play this if it comes out on PC as well, so far it's stated to come out on XBox One and PS4.


Being a huge cyberpunk fan, this game caught my interest easily and I have already pre-ordered it. It basically puts you in the role of a hacker and gives you a lot of power to hack things and use that to your advantage rather than just shooting everything. It has me intrigued and I can't wait to play it.


Already been hyped for this game since I saw the trailers and I've thoroughly played the beta of Titanfall and what can I say, I fucking love it! It's the most fresh and unique shooter I've played in a long time. Sure, it's going to be multiplayer only but that doesn't really bother me that much. The sheer fun I've had so far has me sold on this game and I am definitely getting it on launch.

So that's it for my top 5 anticipated games, some of them coming out already next month. Stay tuned for more reviews and gaming perspectives from yours truly, Alyxx. <3
