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…

Full-Scale R2-D2 Mini-Fridge Can Bring Your Beer To You

All fans of Star Wars might be interested to learn that the Japanese made a mini-fridge shaped like R2-D2.

Presented to you by Haier Asia, Japan, this mini-fridge operates as a regular fridge, with the novelty being its unique shape. But the design digs a little deeper than that – rather than just making it an R2-D2 shell, the fridge can also move (operated with a remote control), flash its lights and turn its head, thus more closely resembling everyone’s favorite little Star Wars robot. It can also project TV and movies (not holograms, though).

Now for the bad news, the first one being that the fridge space is pretty small and can fit about six cans of beer.

The price tag is nothing to be happy about, as it is around $9,000. Add that to the fact that it is only available in Japan and that having it imported would probably cost a fortune too, and you get an extremely rare collectors’ item that probably everyone would want to have.

iPhone 6s Plus Apparently Experiencing Frame Drop Issues

The latest iPhones 6s and 6s Plus are said to be almost identical regarding their specifications. Namely, the difference pertains to the camera, screen resolution and size; while the hardware is the same – an A9 chipset and 2GB RAM.This poor optimization has, however, led to frame drop issues with the iPhone 6s Plus.

In her recent video, Erica Griffin shows much smother performance of the smaller iPhone 6s regarding the animations, than the iPhone 6s Plus, where some lagging is apparent, as well as some frame drops. Still, have in mind that the difference is apparent and actually noticeable only when comparing the two side by side.

I’m sure many of you will agree that this really isn’t something to worry about; but I guess knowing that the iPhone 6s comes a bit cheaper than its larger variant, some consumers may find this ‘poor’ performance quite annoying.

Although it’s not really clear what exactly is the cause of this behavior of the iPhone 6s Plus, there may yet be a fix for it, according to Griffin. All you should do is select Reduce Transparency setting on your phone and it should fix the issue. So, go to Settings, general, Accessibility, Increase Contrast. Bear in mind that the fix isn’t guaranteed to work, but hey – it’s worth a shot, right?! In the meantime do check out the video below to see what we’re talking about.
