Episode 128: 2014 Games Preview Part 1

With the dawning of the new year comes one of my favorite things to do; research for our 2014 games preview.  Though a lot of time goes into reading about most of the games coming out this year, it also gives me a chance get interested in games that I may have otherwise overlooked.  I can also look forward to some of the juggernauts that will be coming out later this year, games like Destiny and Watch Dogs.  For part 1 we cover all the games with solid release dates.  It is primarily made up of games coming in the first quarter, but there are a few games from late spring and summer sprinkled in there and one minor game coming out in September (ehem, Destiny...)  We also cover some controversy from our Thumbies awards episode over our thoughts on Assassin's Creed 4.  Show notes and flash player within:

Some titles like Star Wars 1313 may not even come out this, but we figured we would go over them anyway to make sure we have our bases covered. Show notes after the jump.
