#30 – Child of Light
Available On: Xbox 360, PS3 (Digital)
Releasing: TBA 2014

A beautiful RPG by Ubisoft using the Ubi Framework engine of Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends, Child of Light combines turn-based combat with platforming adventure across both current-gen and next-gen consoles. Telling the story of an ill girl that wakes up in a world where the light has been stolen by the evil Black Queen, players will likely be able to enjoy one of next year’s likely most breathtaking games, even without the next-gen advantage in graphics!

Ace Combat Infinity - Gameplay 1#31 – Ace Combat Infinity
Available On: PS3 (Digital)
Releasing: TBA 2014

The first free-to-play offering in the Ace Combat series of flight action games, Ace Combat Infinity should prove yet another interesting experiment in the growing free-to-play movement, while also providing yet another anticipated entry for fans of this cult series.

#32 – Drakengard 3
Available On: PS3
Releasing: TBA 2014

While Nier was meant to be a spin-off of the series, Drakengard has not been properly seen since Drakengard 2 graced the PS2 back in 2006. Finally, 2014 will see a proper third entry on the PS3, returning players to this cult series of dragoon-starring action-RPG’s in style, and without needing next-gen to make it happen!

#33 – Dying Light
Available On: Xbox 360, PS3
Releasing: TBA 2014

Another game primarily designed for next-gen, but still inviting current-gen console gamers, Dying Light unleashes you on yet another terrifying open-world environment filled with zombies and undead beasties that grow stronger and more dangerous when the sun goes down. Hopefully, this is a game that makes the worn foundation of zombies genuinely terrifying again.

#34 – Fantasia: Music Evolved
Available On: Xbox 360
Releasing: TBA 2014

Rather than just another Dance Central game from Harmonix, Fantasia: Music Evolved will instead use the Kinect peripheral of both Xbox 360 and Xbox One to create a new music/rhythm-driven experience entirely its own. If you’re longing for a memorable and engaging rhythm game, even if you’re still stuck with Xbox 360, this is definitely a game to keep an eye on!

#35 – Hellraid
Available On: Xbox 360, PS3
Releasing: TBA 2014

From the studio that brought you Dead Island, Hellraid pits you and possibly a group of friends against the forces of hell, with limited details beyond that. It’s probably enough to sell this game to many gamers though!

#36 – Hohokum
Available On: PS3 (Digital)
Releasing: 2014

An abstract PlayStation Store game for PS3, PS4 and Vita, Hohokum places you in control of a line segment called the Long Mover, and is just all about the beauty of exploring a surreal environment. It’s no doubt prettier on PS4, but even with just a PS3, this is an experimental adventure that PlayStation Store gamers may find quite intriguing.

#37 – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle
Available On: PS3
Releasing: TBA 2014

Yet another anime fighter planned for release as a PS3 exclusive, and inspired by the manga series of the same name. Brought to us by CyberConnect2, the studio behind the various Naruto fighters, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle provides another eccentric option for anime-loving fighter fans who want something a little more laid-back than Tekken or Virtua Fighter.

#38 – Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix
Available On: PS3
Releasing: TBA 2014

Bundling HD overhauls of Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, along with HD remastered cutscenes of Kingdom Hearts re: coded, and plenty of trophies, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix provides yet another great new way for fans to experience a trio of classics as they continue to whet their appetites for the long overdue next-gen release of Kingdom Hearts III!

#39 – Mad Max
Available On: Xbox 360, PS3
Releasing: TBA 2014

Inspired by the hit movie series and meant to coincide with a reboot movie in development and starring Tom Hardy, Mad Max is an ambitious licensed game coming to us from Avalanche Studios, the developer behind the Just Cause games. The next-gen consoles get this one too, but even current-gen gamers can enjoy plenty of post-apocalyptic vehicular manslaughter, and don’t worry, he will be Australian.
