Top 10 scene-stealing video game villains

We rate the biggest show-stealing villains in gaming

8. The Flood – Halo: Combat Evolved



Despite being essentially a bunch of plants, the Flood managed to steal the show in Halo: Combat Evolved. We're thinking specifically of the infamous Library stage, where the virulent parasite caused us to mess our pants and scramble for the nearest exit.

The Flood made an indelible impression on gamers; mainly because of how out-of-the-blue they were. One moment you're battling alien soldiers in a typical warzone setting -- the next, you’re locked in a room being pursued by jellyfish-like critters and zombies made from bits of your former allies. It was completely unexpected, and subsequently threw the plot into a tailspin.

Those that lived to tell the tale can attest to the level's difficulty (as can the numerous tutorial videos on YouTube…) As players that, by sheer luck or superhuman skills, have passed the Library can tell you, The Flood is one mean mother.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
