The 2014 holiday season is going to be a big one for video games. Chances are you've already preordered your copy of The Master Chief Collection, Super Smash Bros, or Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. Chances are you're so excited to shoot em' up in Far Cry 4, that you've totally overlooked some really great games also coming this Fall.
Prima Games is here with 5 Under the Radar Video Games You Shouldn't Miss in 2014:
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call (3DS, 9/16)
Super Smash Bros. will be huge on 3DS, but won't come out until October 3. In the meantime, definitely pick up this sequel to one of the best music games to debut in recent memory. Curtain Call should surpass the original Theatrhythm with over 200 songs that span over 20 games in the celebrated franchise, including Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The game includes 60 characters to customize in the all-new Quest Medley, which pits them in musical battles against minions and bosses. Collectible cards and a versus mode round out the package.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (PS3/Xbox 360, 9/30)
The first Personal 4 Arena fighting game was a big hit with critics, and casual players may think Ultimax is just an upgrade, similar to Ultra Street Fighter IV, which couldn't be further from the truth. It is in fact a sequel that continues the plot centered around the strange Midnight Channel. New characters join the roster, like Junpei Iori and Yukari Takeba from Persona 3, while multiple fighters now have Shadow versions that feature new fighting mechanics. Basically, if you loved the first Arena, you need to pick up Ultimax.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (PS3/Xbox 360/PC 10/14)
It is somewhat bizarre to list a Borderlands game here, given the series' popularity, but with more people making the jump to Xbox One and PS4, there's a risk of The Pre-Sequel getting somewhat overlooked. That said, we can't wait to explore Pandora's moon Elpis as four brand-new characters (we're partial to Athena the Gladiator) and take full advantage of the anti-gravity effects. You can play as Claptrap for the first time in the series, and new weapons, vehicles and loot are tempting reasons to jump into this universe again.
