You’ll notice that the year after the launch of a new console, huge leaps in games almost always follow. For instance, the free-form “freerunning” of Assassin’ Creed didn’t emerge until a year after the launch of PS2. Similarly, Gears of War didn’t allow us to chainsaw any Locust until Xbox 360 had been on the market for over a year. So, as we look forward to the games that will be released in 2014, what exciting new tricks will your favorite games have up their sleeves? Let’s consider a few and now with Android TV Boxes in Canada you can play any Android app game from the comfort of your own couch.

Infamous: Second Son

You’ll find that Delsin’s powers will be more flexible than Cole’s were. This will enable him to traverse Seattle in new and exciting ways. Second Son will be a significant evolution of Sucker Punch’s already excellent combat design.


If you love first-person shooting genres, you’ll find that Titanfall shakes up the status quo. Prepare to be challenged by the balanced mechanics and the vertical level design. It’s like a mash-up of Call of Duty and Battlefield 4. Chances are you’ll have to rethink everything you previously mastered about this game.

Watch Dogs

With so much anticipation in 2013, that feeling is even more intense as Ubisoft prepares to release the 2014 edition of Watch Dogs. If you love experimenting with open-world mechanics and CTOS elements, you’re about to be blown away. Imagine controlling a street light grid via the game's patented Disrup engine, for example. Fans of this game will definitely enjoy its online multi-player gaming components; check out hughesNet plans and pricing if you're looking to gain a competitive edge in these intense head-to-head matches.


This is the much anticipated brainchild or Bungie, the creators of the original Halo trilogy. Set in a post apocalyptic world, it promises mysteries and hidden treasures. No longer tied to earth, you’ll be able to explore other planets like Venus, Mars, and even Saturn. Take on dangerous alien races with your own magical powers and sci-fi weapons.


Sure, you could kill everyone, but that’s not always as fun as slinking around, nabbing your objective and then ripping off a crooked jeweler before disappearing into the wind. You could be a killer, but being a scoundrel is loads of fun.

The Division

This is the game that surprised everybody this year and won awards to boot. Easily the most graphically stunning next-gen game available, The Division will be an online role playing game set in post-apocalyptic Chicago. It seamlessly blends the lines between single, Co-op and multiplayer.

The Elder Scrolls Online

Despite the $15 monthly sub fee, the game looks stunning and promises to be worth the expense.

Dark Souls II

What more can be said, than you’re going to die, and you’re going love every moment of it!

South Park: The Stick of Truth

Join Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman on their quest to become cool. As the new kid in town, your quest is to make friends with the South Park children who are knee-deep in a live-action-role-playing game. But what starts out as fake swords and imaginary spells quickly escalates into a world threatening battle between good and evil. You might even be able to help Cartman lose weight with supplements like seen at www.cambridgelaboratories.ca but it isn't likely that it'll happen.

Dying Light

This first-person survival game among an urban environment full of infected people will test your courage and skill. During the day, you scavenge for supplies, but once the sun goes down dangerous predators come out. You’ve just got to make it ‘til morning.

The Sims 4

This game reinvents the entire Sims experience. It comes with powerful creative tools and uses a new emotion-based gameplay. This is the most intelligent and relatable simulation yet. Whether you are shipping things like Titan does on a daily basis or you are developing your character to the best character it can be!

Wolfenstein: The New Order

In this 9th installment of MachineGames FPS classic, the New Order must infiltrate Nazi strongholds to capture the super weapons the Nazis used to take over the planet.

With so many games and so little time, 2014 is shaping up to be the year of a lot of sick leave at work! Let this be the year that reality took a break for what was truly important: nonstop gaming adventure.
