Gamers are always eager for the next new release, the next new game announcement or blockbuster sequel. However, there is a fundamental truth about no matter what type of game one may be interested in or a person’s play habits: we tend to always come back to our same favorite games. For some reason gamers can’t leave them alone. No matter how long it has been or whether it’s been played a million times over. So, today’s Renegade Countdown is all about the games I cannot stop revisiting.

10. Sound Shapes

I love user generated games. Putting the tools of the game into the hands of the player spawns some really creative stuff. While there are plenty like Little Big Planet and Minecraft, my favorite has to be Sound Shapes. Some sweet tunes and hearing the music unfold by collecting each note is a wonderful experience. Every once and a while I pick up my vita, pop in my headphones and explore the new curated albums made up of gamer’s musical genius.

I told myself I wouldn’t get myself too excited for Final Fantasy XV, seeing as it has taken forever to develop, but dammit is this trailer has me a little wide eyed. With the demo coming out March of next year along with copies of Final Fantasy Type-0, my hopes have been somewhat renewed that this game will finally see the light of day.

Well it’s official. We have heard the rumors of the past week but now it’s confirmed that Microsoft purchases Minecraft creators Mojang for the big price of $2.5 billion.

Along with the acquisition of Mojang, all three founders, Notch, Carl, and Jakob will be leaving the company. One of the biggest reason for the sale was the overwhelming responsibility that came with owning Minecraft. For Marcus ‘Notch’ person, Xbox Phil Spencer says,

Notch is the creator of Minecraft and the majority shareholder at Mojang. He’s decided that he doesn’t want the responsibility of owning a company of such global significance. Over the past few years he’s made attempts to work on smaller projects, but the pressure of owning Minecraft became too much for him to handle. The only option was to sell Mojang. He’ll continue to do cool stuff though. Don’t worry about that.

For those worried about changes to Minecraft, Microsoft has no immediate plans. Also the versions on PC/Mac, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Vita, iOS, and Android will still be developed and supported.

The sequel to the 3DS game, Resident Evil Revelations, is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One in 2015. Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be an episodic game with an episode coming one week after the other. There are 4 episodes in total, which Capcom will release in two compilations: a digital version (each episode being $5.99 or a season pass for $24.99) and a disc based version that will retail for $39.99. Extra content will be part of both versions.
