    Game of the Year 2014: Jordan's Picks

    Ho ho holy crap, it“s already after Christmas! Quick, S.I.R., write me up a Game of the Year article! Don“t tell me what to do, meat bag. Write it yourself. Meh, not sure why I thought you“d help. Selfish robot… Bite me. *ahem* Well guys, it“s that time of year again, where your lovely Game Podunk staffers bombard you with Game of the Year lists. And whether you like it or not, I“m one of ”em, so here“s a list for you all to gawk at. Like last year, I have decided to be a bit different and ditch the numbers, because… well, that makes me cool, right? No. Aww man… well, whatever. That“s how I“m doing things, so DEAL WITH IT. In any case, my picks are all worthy of your money, and while my list isn“t numbered, these are still the ten games that have satisfied me the most during 2014. Keep in mind, though, that I have not played every single game that was released, so don“t be surprised if a game you love isn“t on here. I“m only human, after all. Best Spin-off Starring Link Hyrule Warriors There have been a ton of Dynasty Warriors games released over the years. And I have played a total of none of them. Not until the release of Hyrule Warriors, anyway. This Zelda entry in the hack-n-slash action series appealed to me because, well, it“s Zelda. I honestly wasn“t sure what to expect going into Hyrule Warriors, but once I started playing the game, I got hooked. It“s fun, pretty, and packed with so much content that I didn“t feel like $60 was too much to ask. I even ended up buying all of the game“s DLC. Now I kinda wanna check out other Dynasty Warriors games… The Video Game Adaptation That Doesn't Suck South Park: The Stick of Truth I started watching South Park when I was 7, much to my parents“ dismay. And ever since then, I wanted a South Park game to exist that actually felt like I was playing the show. South Park 64 was fun and everything, but it was a 3D first-person shooter. There were others, too, but none of them fit the bill. But then came South Park: The Stick of Truth. Not only is this game developed by Obsidian Entertainment, but the folks over at South Park Studios—Trey Parker and Matt Stone themselves—were heavily involved in the game“s creation, even going so far as to officially mapping out the town for the first time ever. And the game is insanely fun, too, being an Obsidian-developed RPG and all. It also has plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Well, at least if you find South Park funny. Overall, this game is perfect for any South Park fan. I do wish it were a bit longer, but I loved it regardless, from start to finish. Best Finger-Pointin“ Crossover Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney I“m a huge fan of the Ace Attorney series. I“m also a huge Professor Layton fan. So you can imagine how delighted I was when I first heard that the two series were crossing over in the form of Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. And you can also imagine my impatience after a year went by without a localization. And then another nine months… But it did come out over here in the states, so I“m happy. And boy was it well worth the wait! This 3DS title mixes the best of both series – the puzzle-solving and exploration from Professor Layton as well as the court segments that Phoenix Wright games are known for, with all-new mechanics introduced to keep things fresh. And both games cross paths with the help of a pretty interesting story. If you“re a fan of these two series, or even just one of them, you should play this game. Best Game with Pokémon in It Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Are you even surprised? Basically, if Nintendo releases a main Pokémon game (or games, I should say, since they almost always come in pairs), it“s pretty much guaranteed to make it onto my GotY list. And this year, we have Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire – remakes of two GBA gems (pun intended) known as… well, guess. Pokémon ORAS (which is what people tend to call these remakes to save time, which I am totally not doing by explaining all of this) aren“t merely straight-up remakes, though. There“s more to do now and plenty of new features have been added, including Primal Reversion, as well as Mega Evolutions, which, of course, were introduced in Pokémon X and Y last year. In fact, one could say these remakes are basically Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire XY-ified. That“s a word as of right now. The RPG That Defeated the Rest Bravely Default I have always been a sucker for good RPGs. When I find a good one, I tend to play for far longer than I should, not being satisfied enough until I“ve done as much as possible. I“ve clocked in more than 100 hours on Xenoblade Chronicles alone. And my intervention didn“t do me any good, so I“m still at it just as hard with other RPGs. This year, my RPG addiction was Bravely Default for the 3DS, which I have at least 70+ hours on. One of my favorite things about Bravely Default is just how retro it feels. From the exploration to the more traditional battle system (albeit with some modifications), and even the story itself, it feels like what Final Fantasy used to feel like once upon a time. It also has a fantastic job system that I found myself utilizing an awful lot. There are some flaws in the game, of course, most people tending to agree on certain aspects of the latter half of the game, but it“s still a great game nonetheless. And the sequel couldn“t come soon enough… Best Game with Retro Flare Shovel Knight I don“t know quite what it is, but for some reason, I just love games that try to be retro. And not only did Shovel Knight try to be retro, but it succeeded with flying colors. 8-bit colors, that is (I“ll be here all week). Seriously, one could easily mistake this game for a game released on the NES. Of course, that was kinda the point. The look, the music, the feel; everything was designed to imitate classic NES platformers (the original NES color palette was even used). And I love everyone who supported the game on Kickstarter for making it happen. Well, and the developers over at Yacht Club Games, obviously. Shovel Knight is insanely fun, and if you don“t have a 3DS or Wii U, you can also play it on a computer. And I“m pretty sure everyone in the world has a computer, SO YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE. The Frozen Banana Award (aka Best Platformer) Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze The original Donkey Kong Country trilogy was—in my eyes—legendary. In the company“s golden years, Rare made some of my favorite games ever. But then, “that†happened, and it took a while before we got a new game in the series in the form of Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii, which was a pleasant, yet very unexpected surprise. Retro Studios did a fantastic job taking over, and they did an even better job with their 2014 follow-up Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U. Tropical Freeze is what I would consider platforming at its finest. Not only does it prove itself worthy enough to don the Donkey Kong Country name, but the game also goes above and beyond to become perhaps one of the greatest platformers I“ve ever played. Yes, I think that highly of this game. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is fantastically fun in almost every regard (playable Cranky Kong among the highlights), and the original trilogy“s composer David Wise even made a return. David. Freaking. Wise. I missed you, David… The Racing Game That Blue-Shelled the Competition Mario Kart 8 I“ve been playing Mario Kart since Super Mario Kart for the SNES. And I“ve had an absolute blast with each iteration since. And while I certainly expected to have a similar level of blastness with Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U, what I was not expecting was to end up crowning the game as my new all-time favorite game in the series. Nostalgia couldn“t keep this puppy down, no siree! There are plenty of things that led me to such a conclusion, of course. First of all, there are a ton of tracks in this game, with the initial package containing 16 new tracks and 16 remastered ones and the two DLC packs providing a total of 16 more. There are also a fair amount of characters, although seven of them are Koopalings and five are #@%$ing babies. Still, I can play as Link now, so I“m good. All in all, Mario Kart 8 is insanely enjoyable, and while the anti-gravity feature isn“t really a game-changer, it still adds some charm to an already masterful racing game. Best “It†Settling Fighting Game Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Come now, it“s Super Smash Bros. Even if Masahiro Sakurai was wasted every time he worked on the game, it would probably still be good enough to make this list. Actually, I would love to play that game… but back to the point! The newest iteration in the Smash Bros. franchise may have had two versions, and while I do love the 3DS version of the game, I do consider the Wii U version the superior one. Still, I do think they did a great job making the best damn Smash Bros. game the 3DS could probably handle. Anyway, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U isn“t just my favorite of the two versions, but I will go ahead and say that it“s the best Super Smash Bros. game to date. Sure, it may not have a Brawl-like story mode, but everything else that made the series so great was improved upon, and the several development teams that worked on the game added so many new features to the already vast number of features that carried over from others that this game is just overflowing with content. Overall, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is loads of fun, and I recommend it to anyone who, you know, likes fun. Sexiest Game of the Year Bayonetta 2 There“s a very good reason that Bayonetta 2 received so many perfect scores across the board—it“s just that good. No, it isn“t perfect, as no game is, ever was, or ever will be, but that doesn“t mean this Wii U exclusive isn“t a friggin“ masterpiece. The first Bayonetta was already a classic, although one that maybe too many people overlooked, so it“s cool to see that its sequel is not only on par with it, but better in just about every way possible. I agree, the story in Bayonetta 2 could have been better. But come on, dude, it“s a video game. Nintendo has pumped out how many top-notch games with generic stories now? No, what truly makes Bayonetta 2 my 2014 Game of the Year is pretty much every other aspect. The game is crazy fun to play, the soundtrack is catchy as hell, and there are so many things to unlock that you feel obligated to just keep on playing. Of course, I wanted to keep playing after I beat it anyway, so I“m cool with that.

  3. It's almost time for another Nintendo Direct, but this time it'll be based on Platinum Games' upcoming Bayonetta 2. While there was a good amount of info spilled on the game during the Treehouse Live @ E3 event, expect to hear all of the major details laid bare tomorrow. Interestingly enough, Bayonetta 2 also marks the first time a Nintendo Direct has been centered on an M-rated game; it'll be interesting to see how that's handled in comparison to previous Directs. In any case, be there Thursday afternoon/evening at 3pm PST/6pm EST at this link if you're interested in hearing more about the game. Are you looking forward to hearing more about Bayonetta 2?
  4. In one of the nicer surprises this E3, Nintendo revealed that the upcoming Bayonetta 2 release will also come with the first Bayonetta title, completely remastered for Wii U with 60 FPS gameplay, off-screen play, and new additions. There are also a few surprises for Nintendo fans as well, including the ability to use several costumes of different Nintendo characters. Bayonetta 2 was also revealed to include optional touch screen controls, where you can move Bayonetta just by touching an area on the screen as well as executing certain attacks by making certain gestures. Producer Atsushi Inaba mentioned that they included the control scheme because they wanted the game to be as accessible as possible. You can look forward to experiencing it for yourself when Bayonetta 2 releases in October exclusively on the Wii U via retail and Wii U eShop. Check out the latest trailer for the game below. Note: You'll need to sign in via Youtube to view the trailer. Potentially NSFW content.

    E3 2013: Bayonetta 2 and X Confirmed For 2014

    Information on Bayonetta 2 and Monolith Soft's X has been scant since the two were announced last Fall and earlier this year respectively, but Nintendo finally spilled more details on the games in today's E3-related Direct presentation. A brief scene from Bayonetta 2 was shown highlighting an impressive battle between Bayonetta and an unknown adversary, and it also showed off her new, shorter hairdo and costume. As for X, a new video was shown highlighting more of the game's open world and its mech suits; it looks to match or exceed the world size of Xenoblade, which would indeed be an impressive feat. Iwata announced that more information would be provided on the games leading up to their release in future Nintendo Directs. In the meantime, you can check out the newest trailer for each game below.
  6. In a surprising development at Nintendo's New York Wii U-based conference this morning, it was announced that Bayonetta 2 is being developed as an exclusive by Platinum Games for the Wii U. Nintendo will also be handling publishing duties, which leaves many to wonder if this rules out timed exclusivity. The first Bayonetta was released on Xbox 360 and PS3 and published by Sega, so the jump to Wii U is an interesting and decidedly calculated move by Nintendo in what is likely an attempt to capture more of the hardcore crowd with its Wii U console. No release date has been given at this time for the game, but it seems likely to be a 2013 or later release. Are you surprised by Bayonetta 2's exclusivity to the Wii U?
