7 Unlockable Characters That Weren’t Worth the Effort

We’re not averse to putting in loads of effort for a worthwhile result, but we are dead against working our socks off for an insultingly shabby reward - as in the case of these unlockable game characters who were so much more hassle than they were worth. Take Bayonetta's unlockable playable character Little King Zero, for instance. Bayonetta is already a pretty challenging game, so imagine how much more 'fun' you could be having if you were playing as a character who was reduced to one hit point by every single attack in the game, regardless of how weak it was. That’s the situation you find yourself if you play Bayonetta as Zero, King of Little Devils, a demon who looks like Santa’s skeleton trying to fight its way out of a garbage bag and costs you five million halos or the completion of the game's diamond-hard lost chapter Angel Slayer. Or take Tofu from Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil 2 was full of great characters, from Leon Kennedy to Claire Redfield, to the unimaginably creepy police chief Brian Irons, to Sherry, the little girl who wouldn’t stop running off. Get six A ranks in a row in the main game, however, and you unlock a new character, called Tofu. Tofu is, as his name suggests, a six foot block of tofu with hands, whose campaign involved running around the sewers brandishing a knife. Still a better character than Steve Burnside from Resident Evil: Code Veronica though. Eff that guy. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about videogames, especially Xbox One games and Xbox 360 games.

The 7 Harshest Continue Screens in Arcade Game History

The whole point of arcade machines is to get you to insert more coins, which is why they often employ every trick in the book to get you to keep playing. The more horrible these games' continue screens were, the more likely you were to pay up, which is why some of these just have to be seen to be believed.

7 Fallout Cults Who Dealt With the Apocalypse So Weirdly

It's tough living in a wasteland short on hope and long on angry supermutants. For some survivors, starting a cult is just their way of coping with the chaos, so it's not for us to judge. Except we’re going to do that right now. Subscribe! http://www.tinyurl.com/SubToOxbox After the apocalypse, some find meaning in life through religion, and then there's the Church of the Children of Atom, who worship the giant unexploded nuclear bomb in the middle of Megaton. Or take The Kings: a gang of guys in New Vegas's Freeside who are really, really into Elvis Presley, except they don't know who Elvis actually was. They moved into an abandoned school for Elvis impersonators in Freeside, took one look at the place and decided anyone that people revered this much had to be a god. Freeside is also where you will find one of the weirdest cults in Fallout New Vegas, Maud's Muggers: a marauding band of old ladies in matching pink dresses who attack you with rolling pins and flickknives. At least the Treeminders are peaceful. Under the leadership of Treefather Birch, these folks are dealing with the apocalypse the best way they know how: gluing twigs to themselves, worshipping a talking tree and being leafy pacifists. Until you incinerate their talking god tree, obviously. Then there's the White Glove Society of the Ultra-Luxe Casino. You don't want to know what those guys are into, other than fancy eveningwear and elitism. It's not like things are any better below the wasteland.

8 Hard Bosses Whose Weird Weakness You Exploited Ruthlessly: Commenter Edition

We recently owned up to the times we exploited the heck out of a hard boss' obscure weakness, and it turned out we weren't alone. The comments were full of players with similar shameful stories, so have a look at these times our commenters seized the opportunity to cheese a hard boss battle and subscribe to Outside Xbox for a video like this every Thursday: http://www.tinyurl.com/SubToOxbox --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about videogames, especially Xbox One games and Xbox 360 games.

Side scrolling beat-’em-ups need to have loads of enemies in them, otherwise they’d be 10 minutes long. But you can’t just recolour everyone or make the player fight evil clones of themselves forever. That’s how we ended up with bizarre boss designs that are surely the result of a late night, a looming deadline and way, way too many cups of coffee. Consider these, our eight favourites.
