Renegade Countdown: Top 10 Most Anticipated Games for the Rest of 2014

It’s hard to imagine that almost half of the year has gone by so fast. So far 2014 seems to have suffered from the transition to the new consoles. While there have been a few surprises (Bravely Default, South Park), there haven’t been many big triple A games to talk about. However, the year is not over and with the recent arrivals of games like TitanFall, inFamous: Second Son and Dark Souls, the rest of 2014 is looking pretty exciting. Here are my Top 10 Most Anticipated Games for the Rest of 2014:

10. The Evil Within

I’m generally not one to get scared by horror games. However, the “Horror” element has been missing for a while now. Leave it to Shinji Makami, the father of survival horror and creator of the Resident Evil series, to get me excited again. Makami’s The Evil Within looks disturbingly horrific … in a good way. From all the previews, this game looks to be a technical masterpiece. Lighting that gives off the right amount of dark that leave you not lost but wondering whats around the next corner. The enemies are relentless and powerful. Also, damage is crucial. Limbs stay hurt until they can be patched up, leaving escape difficult.

Look for this one August 26, 2014.

Pokemon-Bank-Diagram-X-and-Y

Today’s very early Nintendo Direct, dedicated to Pokemon X and Y, had some very big announcements. First off, Game Freak started the Direct with the announcement of Pokemon Bank, which is an application that allow players to store their Pokemon online. Pokemon Bank contain 100 boxes and allow players to manage 3,000 Pokemon. The Pokemon Bank makes it noticeably easier for people with both versions of the game to transfer Pokemon from one game to another without the need for two systems.

Nintendo Announces ….. The 2DS?

2ds-610x486

By far the strangest variations of the 3DS yet, Nintendo announces the 2DS. A cheaper alternative to the 3DS and 3DS XL, the 2DS seems to be for those who do not quite want the 3D feature of the 3DS. The idea of the system makes sense, however abandoning the clam-shell design and the high placement of the buttons looks to be uncomfortable. Speaking with IGN, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime states,

We’re always thinking about what we can do that’s new, unique, different, and brings more people into this category that we love

And so with the Nintendo 3DS, we were clear to parents that, ‘hey, we recommend that your children be seven and older to utilize this device.’ So clearly that creates an opportunity for five-year-olds, six-year-olds, that first-time handheld gaming consumer.

 

The 2DS will come with all the same features as the 3DS (minus the 3D, of course), which include playing 3DS and DS games and Wifi. The only real changes are additional buttons for turning off Wifi and putting the system to sleep. The 2DS will retail for $129.99 and release on October 12th.
