Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Forza Motorsport 5

Turn 10 knows how to make a quality racing game, and by all accounts, they've done it yet again with Forza Motorsport 5. Regardless of whether or not you love racing games, it's hard to turn a blind eye to this title's amazing graphics. Not only do the cars look great (with some of the most incredible reflections ever), but the environments too are an absolute marvel to behold. You may not even be a car fanatic, but Turn 10's use of the Xbox One controller's haptic feedback-enabled triggers will have you dying to take this game for a spin.



Killer Instinct

The folks over at Double Helix have been working on something very special for fans of Rare's classic fighting franchise. That's right, Killer Instinct is back and more brutal than ever. The passion the development team has behind this Xbox One exclusive is made obvious in the game's nostalgia-oozing presentation. From the iconic voice of the announcer to faithful recreations of the original's iconic cast, there's no doubt that this is a love letter to longtime fans of the series. Plus, with a new unique pricing scheme, you can take the plunge risk-free and fill out the roster as you see fit.



Dead Rising 3

Capcom's zombie-slaying action franchise continues on Xbox One with Dead Rising 3. This third proper entry takes the series in a much darker direction, while still managing to imbue that ridiculous sense of humor that has become synonymous with the franchise. You haven't lived until you've torched hundreds of zombies with a flamethrower or sped down a street littered with shoulder-to-shoulder undead walkers. Sure, next-gen hardware has given Capcom the ability to make it the prettiest entry the series has seen thus far, but more importantly, it has allowed the studio to cram an insane amount of enemies on the screen at any given time. Believe me, you haven't experienced the insanity of a zombie apocalypse quite like this before. 



NBA 2K14

2K has proven to be the home of some of the greatest basketball video games known to mankind. NBA 2K14 continues that trend with what is undoubtedly the most gorgeous sports title you've ever seen. Remember how Fight Night: Round 3 quickly became the early visual showpiece for Xbox 360? Well, NBA 2K14 is hands down the Fight Night of Xbox One. With astounding character models and super lifelike animations to go along with them, 2K's latest foray into the world of basketball is easily one of its best. Oh yeah, and from what I hear, it's a blast to actually play, too.



Battlefield 4

While DICE's latest entry in the Battlefield franchise may already be available for purchase on current-gen consoles, make now mistake, Battlefield 4 was designed with next-gen hardware in mind. From stunning visuals to unparalleled levels of destruction and dynamic maps, there's a whole lot new about this jaw-dropping first-person shooter. If you want a game that will really push your shiny new Xbox One to its limits, the massive online battles of Battlefield 4 will be sure to do the trick.
