RPG, Pinball, adventure. Those were the first words I had read when I was taking a first look at Rollers of the Realm, and I immediately had to know more about the game. Find out what my impressions...
The One Piece: Pirate Warriors series coming to North America isn't really suprising. What is surprising is the fact that the game is coming to PSVita AND Steam in North America. Previously, Namco skipped the PSVita version of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2.
Alright, this is a shock. Namco Bandai of America is actually localizing a Shounen Jump fighting game. Yeah, you heard right. Very shocking indeed. Also new, it's coming to PS4 which is new since the original Japanese release was PS3 and PSVita exclusive.
They shouldn't have trouble localizing that Digimon Vita game now!
It was commonly known that November was a month of some hectic game launches, and nearly every game released suffered some kind of launch issue. This included Halo the Master Chief Collection, and its atrocious matchmaking issues that are still being ironed out today.
Fans have been outcrying for some kind of compensation for their suffering, so 343 decided, "Hey... Lets throw another game their way why don't we?"
To be eligible for most of the free content, you must be an "online user" who played Halo: The Master Chief Collection between launch date (November 11, 2014) and yesterday, December 19. The exception is for the newly remastered Halo 2 map, which will be made available to everyone.
It's a well known fact I am one of the biggest Halo freaks on this forum, and i've done my fair share of complaining about the Halo MCC launch (I don't think there isnt a single curse I havent uttered in the same sentence as 343 industries.)
This news came as quite a pleasant surprise, as I was a very big fan of ODST, however, mostly for its FireFight mode, which will not be included on launch. That being said, it is wonderful to see 343 take responsibility for their launch, and even offer compensation as large as this for it. I am humbled and happy to be a Halo fan still
Earlier this year, the Android got Portal and Half Life 2 released as "exclusives" for Nvidia's Shield Portable and Shield Tablet. With those releases, many were speculating other Source games were coming to Android, and now we've seen a new Source game released, Half Life 2 Episode One, which is available exclusively on the Shield Tablet only.
The game is cited as having little graphical differences between the PC version at the best settings, with the same physics and face-paced gameplay as the original. Below you'll find a comparison image, where you can see the subtle difference graphics-wise between the two.

I'll be trying the game myself later today, Portal and Half Life 2 ran great and my only complaint with them was load times being a bit long. If Episode One has shorter load times, then I definitely can't wait to play through it on my Tablet and any other future Source games.
Now that 2014 is almost at an end, I thought I would share what are my Top 10 games from this year.
This isn't an official list and doesn't represent GBAtemp's GotY or any other of the staff's feelings. It also doesn't cover all platforms as I don't play all platforms, it is simply what I found to be the best of the many games I have played in 2014.
Without further ado, here is my Top 10 for 2014!
