1. Mario Kart 8
Release date: Spring 2014
Platforms: Wii U

The coolest Italian character since The Godfather returns in this Wii U exclusive racer which now features all new antigravity courses, allowing vehicles to race on walls and ceilings.

2. Titanfall
Release date: March 14 (Europe)

Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3, PC

The follow up to Digital Spy's game of the generation will offer more of the same punishing role playing action. The world will be similar in size to the first game's sprawling location of Lordan; not to be confused with London.

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360
From the development team behind Halo, Destiny is a console shooter set in a world that merges multiplayer and single player sessions.
