Transistor is easily one of the best indie titles to have released in 2014. Made by Supergiant Games, this sci-fi action RPG stars all the qualities of their hit debut, Bastion. In short: The game’s story, visual style, soundtrack, and gameplay are all top-notch, coming together for a memorable gaming experience. Look around and you’ll see Transistor happily sitting in Top 10 lists. Whatever you do, don’t miss this one!

Yakuza 4 is a strange one. The game and its series as a whole are good yet you don’t often hear people talking about it, despite being a PlayStation exclusive. Developed by Sega, Yakuza 4 plunges players into the Japanese underworld, set in a fictional recreation of Shinjuku’s red-light district. In a sense it’s the Eastern counterpart to Grand Theft Auto with its handful of side activities, yet on a much smaller scale. For a fun (mature) read, here’s what real yakuza members think about its predecessor.

Rogue Legacy on the other hand makes a perfect fit for handhelds. This Rogue-lite is based in a procedurally generated castle. When your character finally kicks the bucket the lineage grows stronger, giving the next unfortunate knight a slightly better chance at surviving the many challenges inside. The game is a little old by this point but is nonetheless quite a treat to play.

Don’t forget to grab January’s free games – it features Infamous First Light!
