Top 5 Games of July 2014


5. Ratchet And Clank Trilogy

All 3 original Ratchet and Clank games on your PS Vita. Not a bad idea, is it? Made by the same people who produced the Jak and Daxter trilogy, this collection of comical goodness is made up out of the first 3 Ratchet And Clank games for the PS2, which were all critcially applauded, and all 3 games get their own set of trophies as well as a new lick of HD paint that ACTUALLY LOOKS GOOD. This collection is a great way to relive the old misadventures of the two heroes, and perhaps a good way to reminisce and go all misty eyed on the train as the guy next to you leaks wubbing rubbish out of his ears.

4. Magic 2015

While the console and PC versions of Magic aren't so good, the mobile versions excel, thanks to their easy touch controls and the feeling that you really are playing a game of Magic instead of clicking cards on your PC because you're two poor to buy a pack every week. #magicproblems. Anyways, in this next iteration, you're able to build and customize your own deck to duel with, battle with greats such as Garruk Wildspeaker and use a more sturdy, complete and intuitive deck builder.

3. Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Usually, I'd avoid a mobile game from a big company, mainly because of my fuming hate for King.com and Zynga, but Modern Combat 5 has become an exception for me. Never has shooter on a mobile platform played or looked so good, and an added bonus is that, since the game isn't free, there's a distinct lack of microtransactions. As always, the single player modes are quick, innnovative and fun, and the fact that single and multiplayer blends into a seamless package where you can level up your character through both modes just makes leveling up that much easier, no grinding needed. 

2. Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition

Guacamelee! being ported to more consoles is always a good thing, and the new additions mean that veterans of the game can still play it again on their current-gen console without it getting stale. I'm not saying that playing through the original again would be stale, though! The story includes new additions as well as the original story and it's DLC, with two cool new areas being added: Volcano, a lava filled world where you fight new boss the Trio Of Death, and Canal Of Flowers, a port town that must be saved via the medium of boats and wrestling. Chuck in new enemies and moves, and you've got one SPICY MEATABALL! Wait, wrong stereotype.

1. The Last of Us Remastered

Seriously, what else did you expect to be at number 1? Judging by the interviews Naughty Dog have been giving recently, the developers went to hell and back to build this astounding game from the ground up in stunning 1080p 60fps, although it does contain a 30fps lock for purists. Though it may seem like a money grab, anyone who hasn't played The Last Of Us, or anyone who didn't buy any DLC, should pick this up, as it'll be a great addition to your growing library of PS4 "classics".

Sure, there were 3 remakes in this list, but it's been a quiet month. Do you agree or disagree with my list? Tell us in the comments below!
