I have to say I was personally hyped about the prospect of Driveclub. A next-gen driving experience created by the developers of the off-road franchise hit MotorStorm. From what I’d seen of Driveclub in action, it was shaping up to be the first revolutionary racing title to unlock the full potential of the Playstation 4.

Coming off the success of their first soiree into the next-generation marketplace, NBA 2K14 set a high benchmark as arguably the greatest basketball simulator experience ever created. The distinction between the previous-gen and now current-gen consoles was pretty much light and day, leaving many fans to ask the obvious question of Visual Concepts – Where can the 2K franchise go from here?

Although the improvements aren’t as drastic or immediately distinguishable from tip-off, NBA 2K15 adds further refinement to a series that needed very little improvement to captivate its audience.

Fans of Nickelodeon’s sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender rejoiced upon hearing the news that Platinum Games – renowned for titles such as Bayonetta, Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising – would be taking on the challenge of a true The Legend of Korra videogame. Licensed games typically have a reputation of failing to meet expectations, and while this may still hold weight with this year’s tie-in, fans will be pleased to know that they can still dive in and experience the power of bending for themselves.

To call Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed different would be an understatement. A street brawler at heart, Akiba’s Trip wacky take on Japanese culture and fan service is not going to bode well with everyone. It’s an accomplished title let down by a questionable design direction.

When you think Kickstarter success stories in video games, Wasteland 2 would rank among the top of the pile. Funded back in 2012 and racking in almost three million dollars, Wasteland 2 is a true test of whether Kickstarter funding can be worthwhile or not, and it’s going to divide opinions.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution follows closely in the footsteps of its predecessor Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Jam-packed with more characters, story, special jutsu and new features, this title feels more like a continuation than a proper revolution as the name may suggest. As the fifth title (and possibly last title) for last gen consoles, Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is a welcome inclusion to the long-running franchise.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is the follow up the Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, a visual novel title, bringing together a whodunit murder mystery with Japanese quirky ingenuity. Trigger Happy Havoc was a brilliant entry point for many, prompting a translation for its sequel. It’s all fairly familiar territory with rich, robust story-telling once more.

Tinkerworld is in big trouble. The usually peaceful landscape is losing that which once made it such a happy, peaceful place to live. Gone are the days of togetherness and understanding; now replaced with anger, sadness and fear. The division of people through colours is a theme which continues throughout the game’s story, and might just have a thing or two to say about the world we live in by the time the credits roll.

One of last year’s monster J-RPG hit Tales of Xillia has spawned a sequel, aptly titled Tales of Xillia 2. It’s a tall task for Xillia 2 given the massive success of its predecessor, and yet again a delayed offering for the English speaking market. Tales of Xillia 2 is a thoroughly polished and genuinely welcome title to the Tales series, but doesn’t quite hit the notes in the same way that Tales of Xillia did.
