10 Best Xbox Games of 2014 That Nobody Can Forget

2014 was a bizarre year. It was a year of HD premasters and “Conclusive Editions” on Xbox One, or more heaps of cross-gen games discharged on both Xbox 360 and Xbox 1. Few games genuinely emerged – especially on 360 – so making our yearly Game of the Year list in the not so distant future was troublesome. So here is the list of 10 best Xbox games of 2014 that no buddy can forget.

Problems Only 90s Gamers Could Understand

With the PS1 turned 20 last December it’s got us thinking about gaming in the 90s. We complain a lot these days, but there were a lot of problems with gaming back then that we all seemed to ignore. If you were a gamer in the 90s you’d know all about these particular problems…

All The Rockstar Sequels We’re Eager To Get

Rockstar teased they are returning to the Red Dead series and an official announcement has placed the release for fall 2017. As much as we’re anticipating the continuation of the Red Dead franchise, there are others we’re also eager to see.


One of the most unique Rockstar games ever, the stealth-based survival horror Manhunt was quite controversial. It was even pulled off the shelves in Australia after release despite the MA15+ rating. The game pushed boundaries, as you play as the death row prisoner James Cash who is forced to participate in snuff films and kill people in gruesome ways.

Certainly one of the most original games of this genre, and it would be interesting to see in which direction Rockstar could take the potential sequels.

Table Tennis

Ah, Rockstar’s Table Tennis, an almost decade old Xbox 360 game, is probably one of the few games with the subject of table tennis. Despite the crazy amount of time we’ve spent playing it, and the level of polish and content it had, it’s highly unlikely we’ll ever see Rockstar remaking or continuing the franchise. However, it would be cool to see.

L.A. Noire

This one is more likely to get a sequel, as Rockstar had gone on record saying that the game is important enough to them that they may make a sequel in the future. L.A. Noire was primarily developed by Team Bondi, Australian developer, and used some revolutionary facial expression technology that allowed the developers to do with storytelling what no other game did before.

The game is set in Los Angeles, during 1947, and you play as an LAPD officer that has to solve cases across five divisions. It wasn’t as action-packed as most Rockstar titles, but it ended up being quite influential in the gaming scene and a favorite of many.


We long for another GTA game set in Vice City. The 80’s flavored GTA adventure had a certain vibe to it that no other GTA game had – maybe because it was set in the 80’s, maybe it was due to the Miami inspiration, but it was so cool cruising those neon-soaked streets and listening to some awesome music from the time on the radio.

If we take into account that GTA IV was set in a modernized version of Liberty City, and GTA V sent us back into the all new and improved San Andreas, wouldn’t it be great to go back to Vice City as well and see how things are going now – or even keep it in the 80’s time frame? Well, we think it would.

The Top 10 Villains From Tim Burton Movies

Inspired by the recent role of Samuel L. Jackson in Tim Burton’s adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, we’ve compiled a list of ten most iconic villains in Burton’s movies, characters that were often equally enchanting as the heroes were.

10. The Hessian

In 1999’s movie Sleepy Hollow, Christopher Walken plays the unforgettable Hessian (the Headless Horseman) and chops quite a few heads off. Even though he was not the main baddie but simply controlled, we spend half the movie thinking he is the ultimate bad. Ray Park played the Horseman without the head, and was every bit as menacing as Walken.

9. Thade

In Planet of the Apes remake by Tim Burton from 2001, probably the most memorable part is Tim Roth’s performance as General Thade. Roth chose this role over the role of Severus Snape in Harry Potter, most likely due to amazing makeup from Rick Baker that really transformed him into the iconic megalomaniacal ape. He might have missed out on the role of Snape, but he certainly managed to enslave humanity – and make a monkey out of Mark Wahlberg, so we salute him for that.

8. The Martians

In Mars Attacks, the 1996 movie about an alien invasion with a pretty dark sense of humor, certainly the Martians are the most memorable thing: skeleton-faced, big-brained, they wreaked chaos on unsuspecting Earth. The timing of this movie was peculiar, quite close to the release of the mega-hit Independence Day, but in a way, much more apocalyptic. The aliens committed some of the most heinous deeds in any Tim Burton movie (the funniest probably being the sewing of Sarah Jessica Parker’s head onto the body of a dog), killing people and animals here, there and everywhere.

7. The Penguin

Remember Danny DeVito in Batman Returns, the 1992 Batman movie? Of course you do – it’s hard to forget such a sleazy, malformed and overall disgusting character. Oscar Cobblepot, aka the Penguin, kidnapped all of Gotham City socialites’ first born children, after almost becoming the mayor due to the general public being sympathetic towards him being orphaned as a baby due to his deformities. Still, as crazy as the Penguin was, he decided it would be better to blow up everything. Not one of the greatest Batman movies, but DeVito is certainly a memorable Batman villain.

6. Francis Buxton

1985’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure is a story of man-children where the main character’s adventure is kickstarted by the theft of his prized bicycle… and the man responsible is our villain, Francis Buxton, played by Mark Holton. A fellow man-child, he even hired a man to steal the bike for him because he didn’t have the guts to do so himself. The spoiled “rich kid” gets his just reward after many twists and turns, by getting rocketed towards the sky and certain injury by the ejector seat on Pee-wee’s bicycle.

5. Jim

In one of Burton’s most well known films, Edward Scissorhands, released in 1990, Anthony Michael Hall plays Jim, the town no-good bully and boyfriend of Edward’s romantic interest, Kim. Throughout the movie he attacks Edward (and later Kim, when she leaves him), mistreating everyone in his path, causing Edward to become an outcast after using him to pick locks and leaving him to get caught. Eventually, Edward kills him in a brawl attempting to protect Kim, and Jim gets no redemption whatsoever, despite the fact his punishment might be more severe than what his crimes deserved. In Burton’s reality, bad things will happen to bad people.

4. Oogie Boogie

1993’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, though not directed by Burton, is on this list because he was one of the writers. And what a villain we have here: Oogie Boogie, voiced by Ken Page, the character who gambles away the life of Santa Claus. He sings well, though, but that doesn’t make him less of a… well, talking sack filled with worms and bugs.

3. Catwoman

Catwoman must be the people’s favorite when it comes to antagonists, and was performed perfectly by Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns (another villain from that movie on our list). Indeed, the cat lady had become increasingly popular after it, embraced by the fandom, and instead of villain, morphed into a sort of an anti hero in subsequent films and comics - though Pfeiffer managed to portray her as a dangerous, alluring and scary lady, definitely a villainess with some attempted murder on her hands.

2. Joker

One of the most iconic villains ever was portrayed masterfully in Burton’s 1989 movie Batman by none other than Jack Nicholson. The movie was a strong foundation from which the consequent comic book movies, not just the Batman franchise, were built upon, and for many years it did not seem anyone could surpass Nicholson at the role of Joker. The cackling, mad gangster doused Gotham City with the lethal Smile-X gas, and succeeded at being threatening despite the clown makeup, thus proving the concerns that comic book characters would not translate to live action well were unfounded.

1. Beetlejuice

There’s no better villain than the one the movie is named after, right? In Beetlejuice, Burton’s 1988 movie, the heroes are the recently deceased Maitlands and a hopeless goth named Lydia, whom Beetlejuice extorts into marrying him, despite her being just a teenage girl (and possibly underage). Beetlejuice is the ghoul with supernatural powers, played by Michael Keaton. The bio-exorcist ghost is a selfish chauvinist that eats flies and is covered with mold, and makes you wonder what was he like when he was alive – certainly no less of a scumbag.

Battlefield 1 has only 5 singleplayer episodes

According to DICE, there will be 5 different “War Stories” to choose from in Battlefield 1 singleplayer campaign. They are designed to encompass different theaters of WWI, like the Arabian theater (recall the Lawrence of Arabia) or the European theatre.

The details of the 5 playable War Stories have been specified by DICE.

The fact that they are named “War Stories” instead of plain, old missions probably lies in the fact that there are only 5 of them, which might cause an uproar in a large portion of Battlefield community.

Here are the different Battlefield 1 War Stories, i.e. singleplayer episodes:
  • Friends in High Places features aerial combat in Europe between the German and British forces.
  • Nothing Is Written is set in the Arabian peninsula where the Arabs are rebelling against the Ottoman Empire.
  • Through Mud and Blood is set in France during the height of the trench warfare battles.
  • Avanti Savoia is set in the Alps and features battles between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian empire.
  • The Runner features the “Gallipoli Landings”, often called the “D-Day of World War 1”.
Singleplayer was never a strong aspect of the Battlefield franchise...

Battlefield 1 releases on October 21st for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Suicide Silence to Unleash Self-Titled Album in February 2017

Deathcore band from California, Suicide Silence, have announced their fifth studio album that is set to come out in February of 2017.

The new full-length album will be self-titled, produced by Ross Robinson, a studio legend who worked on iconic releases such as Slipknot’s Iowa, Sepultura’s Roots and Korn’s self titled album. The release was announced by the band on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal station, and it’s going to happen under the wing of Nuclear Blast.

This is going to be the band’s second album with Eddie Hermida on vocals, as he replaced Mitch Lucker in 2012 after his tragic and untimely death. Suicide Silence may be the first album of the band that will have no lyrical content written by Lucker – 2014’s title track of You Can’t Stop Me featured lyrics that Lucker wrote before he passed.

“The music in itself is something that you’re not going to be expecting from us,” says guitarist Mark Heylmun. “That’s really all you can say. It’s going to be the newest Suicide Silence you’ve ever heard.”

“We decided to call it Suicide Silence pretty much before we even started writing because we knew we were gonna go with a no holds barred, fearless approach to the record and not put any restraints on ourselves or stick to some formula that we very well could stick to cause we know how to play our music,” adds vocalist Eddie Hermida. “But for this one, we dug f–kin’ deep and Ross is the sickest producer and Joe Barresi just finished mixing it. So we’ve got the rawest, realest approach to recording. It’s a raw, real record and it’ll be out February 2017 on Nuclear Blast.”

“It makes perfect sense. [Robinson and Barresi] are a dream team and it’s such an honor to have those dudes in our corner telling us how f–king badass our new record is,” Heylmun gushes. “It’s out of this world, man,” Eddie adds. “If Ross and Joe love it, then everyone’s gonna like it, and if you don’t like it, good.”

“We were paying homage [to Lucker on our last album], paying respects to the legacy that was left behind, but now it’s time to pick up the reins and it’s a new band and it’s a new entity and it’s the perfect opportunity for a band to redefine themselves, to show the world who we really are deep down inside,” Hermida describes. “We’re not little kids anymore and we’re not trying to prove ourselves in the heavy community. We’ve already made our name there and it’s time to spread our wings and see what happens. You can only learn how to fly by jumping off the cliff.”

A co-headlining U.S. tour with Whitechapel and support from Carnifex and Oceano has already been announced, and started September 28.

The Last Guardian Has Changed Over The Last Year - Graphics Comparison

There’s an interesting video to be seen at the channel of the YouTuber ‘Cycu1’ that compares footage of The Last Guardian from E3 2015 to last week’s footage.

The first thing that can be noticed right off the bat are the changes made to Trico: smaller wings and tail, and his feathers have been made darker. It’s interesting to see there are changes still being made to the main character even in a game that’s been in development for 10 years – it could be about development or simply character design.

Another thing when it comes to Trico is that there are more effects that improve the factor of believability, such as dust and shadow that are now visible when the bridge falls, and the backgrounds are also made more detailed.

The game has been recently delayed again, and will be released on PS4 on December 7th.
