Top 5 Games Of June 2014!


5. Company Of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies

Known as one of the best Real Time Strategy series of all time, the Company of Heroes line of games just got a great new standalone DLC that you can snag for a cool £10. Along with two new factions to play as, you'll get a great new feature that allows you to airdrop items and paratroopers can really turn any game on it's head. Despite having no singleplayer mode (Which is forgivable for the price) the multiplayer is really the best mode in Company of Heroes, and if you haven't had a chance to play this compelling series yet, you can't go wrong with The Western Front Armies.

4. GRID Autosport

From a diddly Honda Civic to the lighting fast McLaren F1, GRID Autosport has obviously got you covered in the car department, and with 4K graphics on the PC (If you've got the tech), said motor-vehicles look absolutely stunning. With Touring, Endurance, Open Wheel, Tuner and Street races and vehicle types, all raceable on 22 different tracks with varied routes, there's a lot of meat in this package, so much that it's pretty much got you covered until the likes of The Crew and Driveclub come out later this year. Vrooooom.

3. 1001 Spikes

DIE DIE DIE. That's what you'll probably be doing most in 1001 Spikes, what with it's 100+ levels on par difficulty-wise with the likes of Super Meat Boy and I Wanna Be The Guy. And guess what? You're "only" given 1001 lives to do it with. Still, at least you'll be able to enlist up to 3 other friends as you shout at each other and blame each other for your own expirations, and you'll be able to unlock more secret characters with you. And what would an indie game be without 8-bit graphics and chiptunes that are almost too catchy? If you're looking for a reason to question life, why not try 1001 Spikes?

2. Ultra Street Fighter IV

While many people put off this next iteration of the Street Fighter (Or shall I say Street Fighter IV) series because of it's apparent lack of new fighters and the fact that it was the trillionth Street Fighter IV game, I'm sure many people were pleasantly surprised! As well as the addition of 5 new fighters (4 of them being from Street Fighter X Tekken) USFIV has added some cool new mechanics, like Ultra Combo Double, which lets players use both of their Ultra Combo moves, Red Focus Attack, a Focus Attack that absorbs more damage, and Delayed Standing, which allows players to choose when their fighter gets up after being knocked down. If you understood any of what I just said, Ultra Street Fighter IV is IV you!

1. WildStar

Being one of the only Subscription MMOs that you don't actually have to pay real money (You can buy 30 day passes on the storefront with in-game credits) for has already put WildStar in my good book, and it's flurry of features and innovations means that it might actually be the first MMO I'll ever buy! Anyways, Wildstar has the huge planet Nexus as your playground, and with quests to do and huge monsters to fall in every "corner", you'll be an addicted blob in no time!
