2013 is history now. It's 2014, and there are awesome games coming out this year. And I'm counting down the Top Ten of those games now.
#10: Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart 8 is basically Mario Kart 7, in HD, with Anti-Gravity. And that's pretty cool. I just hope Miis are still playable in this one.
#9: South Park: The Stick of Truth
This game was supposed to come out over a year ago. Seriously, if THQ hadn't gone bankrupt, we'd be playing this right now. Anyway, even though there's now way it can live up to the expectations at this point, it's fucking South Park, and that's good enough for me.
#8: Ultra Street Fighter IV
It's been about 2 and 1/2 years since Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition came out, so I'm pretty sure Street Fighter fans have been starved for the next installment. Though USFIV doesn't seem to be bringing too much new stuff to the table, it's a Street Fighter game, so I'm sold.
I've never played any of the other Strider games, but from what I've seen of this one, it's fast-paced, action-packed, and a Metroidvania-style game, so it looks pretty sweet. Perfect game to get me into the franchise.
#6: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z
Redundant name aside, this game looks freaking sweet. Awesome team-based battles, allowing you to use multiple forms of a character in the same team, Battle of Gods characters, and an all new style of DBZ game.
#5: God Eater 2
While there is a possibility that this won't come to America, I'm ignoring that for the purposes of this list. Anyway, Gods Eater Burst is one of the better PSP games out there, and now has a badass sequel on the Vita?! Finally, a reason to get one!
#4: inFAMOUS: Second Son
The inFAMOUS games are all really good, and now that they're expanding the story with a new character and powers and stuff, there's all sorts of possibilities. Really, I can't think of any way this game can go wrong.
#3: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
While Lords of Shadow was a fucking mess of a game, it at least had interesting concepts and a good story. And Lords of Shadow 2 seems to be trying to fix the gameplay, so points for that. Also, Drac!Gabriel vs. Satan. YES.
#2: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes & Phantom Pain
I put them both at the same spot because Ground Zeroes is just the prologue so they're two halves of the same game. Basically, It's two new Metal Gear games, and it has the most realistic graphics I've ever seen, like, ever. ALL OF MY MONEY AND ALL OF MY YES.
#1: Super Smash Bros for Wii U & 3DS
Yes, I know this game is just about guaranteed to get delayed to next year, but it's release date is currently "TBA 2014" so... yeah. Anyway, what needs to be said? It's a new Smash Bros, it has Megaman, it's portable for the first time, etc. It's like Nintendo has a Poltergust aimed right at my wallet.
Speaking of Smash Bros, Dedede was revealed today. Yay.
HBM, signing out.
