April: The Month Ahead!

Hi Guys

Got a new monthly feature where I look at the best games coming out in the coming month! (All dates are for Europe) Let's do that!

April 4th: The Elder Scrolls Online!

Now I'm not a fan of MMOs or RPGs, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't check out The Elder Scrolls Online! The first Elder Scrolls MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online lets you pick between 4 classes: Dragon Knight, Templar, Sorcerer and Nightblade. Many people I know have said that it's exactly like Skyrim but online and you're not the only hero. It will be non linear, so you're never forced to do anything you don't want to, but unfortunately it will be always-online, which could do well or wrong depending on how Bethesda are managing the servers. Well, at least EA aren't managing them! The Elder Scrolls Online will launch on Mac and PC!

April 8th: Daylight

As you can tell, Daylight is a horror game. In Daylight, you won't have to worry about conserving ammo, because there are no guns. You simply have to survive on glow sticks and a phone. All levels are randomly generated, but they are all set in an abandoned hospital, where you play as Sarah, a girl who wakes up in the hospital with no memory of how she got there. A voice tells her the secrets of the hospital's past, and Sarah must find out about it so she can escape. Daylight will launch on PS4 and PC!

April 11th: LEGO The Hobbit!

Now, I've never watched The Hobbit, read it or ever been a fan of it, but I freakin' LOVE Lego games. LEGO The Hobbit looks like it'll be another classic, after the unfortunate disappointment of The Lego Movie Game. According to TT Games, you "will be able to mine for gems, discover loot from enemies and craft powerful magical items or build immense new LEGO structures.', so it looks like LEGO The Hobbit will almost take a Minecraft take on it's open world, so look out for that! LEGO The Hobbit will be about the first two films, with the third being released as DLC later on. LEGO The Hobbit will come out for 3DS, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360, Wii U, PS4 and PS3!

April 17th: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil!

Controversially only coming out for last-gen consoles, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is set to improve on the (In my opinion) disappointment of FIFA 14, with it's broken first touch system being fixed, plus improved passing and dribbling mechanics. The most notable new features though are the (Kinda) new Road to the FIFA World Cup and Road to Rio de Janeiro modes, with the former mode being where you play as any of the 203 playable countries and work your way through the Qualification and World Cup Finals, while the latter is an online version. 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil will be released on Xbox 360 and PS3!

April 30th: Child Of Light!

Many people hate it when the concept art for a game looks so much better than the actual game, and Child Of Light will tackle that problem, because there is no concept art: only screenshots. This artsy-fartsy game tells the story of Aurora, a girl who is kidnapped and thrown into a different world, where she must find the moon, the sun and the stars so she can get back home. Sounds like a nicer version of Daylight, doesn't it? Anyway, Child Of Light will be a 2D Platformer-RPG hybrid, and there will be turn based combat. There will also be co op multiplayer, where another player will play as Igniculus, a firefly. Child Of Light will come out for PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox One and Xbox 360!
