Scheduled to launch on 21 March, it’s safe to say that there’s a heap of anticipation surrounding Mass Effect: Andromeda – and with good reason.

LG G6: Everything we know so far

How do you trump a whole new type of smartphone? When LG delivered the G5 last year, it brought to the table the most usable example of a modular mobile to date. With a switchable bumper plate and add-ons that included camera and hi-fi modules, the G5 represented what we thought might just be the future for phones. And, while the modularity didn’t catch on as LG had hoped, it was still an im...[Read More]

Halo Wars 2 – War is hell – but Halo Wars is still pretty good

No one expected much from Halo Wars eight years ago, but it was actually pretty great. And you can kind of say the same for Halo Wars 2. Expanding the series from the first-person perspective of a single, super-powered soldier to the top-down view of entire battlefields helps to properly showcase an immense scale of warfare, while this long-awaited sequel is further proof that a real-time strategy...[Read More]

The 20 best Samsung Gear VR games, apps and experiences

The HTC Vive and Oculus Rift might be battling it out for the upper end of VR, requiring a pricey new PC to even hit minimum specs with either – but Samsung’s Gear VR still delivers a great mobile VR experience at a fraction of the cost.

12 Nokia phones that changed the world (and 9 crazy ones)

Nokia is back. Like a phoenix from the ashes, the once iconic phone-maker is set to return at this year’s Mobile World Congress show – and rumour has it, will be bringing an updated 3310 along too. We’ve got fond memories of that phone (good luck beating our Snake high score, people) but it got us thinking – Nokia regularly shifted the gadget-time continuum with its crazy c...[Read More]

Your next smartphone will shoot 1000fps ultra slow-mo videos

Get ready for some Matrix-style slow motion – without the crazy expensive camera hardware. Sony has pulled back the curtain on a new smartphone sensor, one that’ll shoot Full HD 1080p video at a frankly ridiculous 1000fps. That’s about eight times faster than the rest of the smartphone world, according to Sony. The new sensor should be pretty handy when it comes to still photos, ...[Read More]

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3: Everything we know so far

Tablets might not be as in demand as they used to be, but that’s not going to stop Samsung from giving it the old college try. Android fans have really only had one choice if they wanted something to rival Apple’s iPad – the Galaxy Tab S2. Now that the iPad Pro has arrived, though, Samsung needs a new weapon to stop everyone jumping ship to iOS. Enter the Galaxy Tab S3. It’...[Read More]

5 things you need to know about the Canon EOS 800D

Two years is a long time in camera world, but that’s how long it’s been since Canon announced our then favourite beginner DSLR – the 750D. Since 2015, a whole army of mirrorless cameras have stormed the entry-level barracks and become our picks for anyone looking for ‘my first proper camera’. Not that DSLRs are giving up the fight. The Canon 750D is still going to be available for bargain-hunters,...[Read More]

BlackBerry Mercury: Everything we know so far

BlackBerry was famously blindsided by the industry’s move to touch devices, but following a few rough years and some missteps, the company finally seems to be finding its mojo – thanks to Android. The BlackBerry Priv was largely excellent, but the high price kept it out of reach for most. The touchscreen-only DTEK50 and DTEK60 weren’t quite as inspiring, but the upcoming Mercury could ...[Read More]

Resident Evil 7 – The original survival horror is back, and bloody terrifying

Zombies – they’ve literally been done to death. Hordes of undead shamblers have been chasing our delicious brains so regularly across games, movies and TV shows recently that they barely register so much as a shiver any more. A murderous family of rednecks with a truly twisted idea of hospitality, though? One that makes the house from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre look like a five star hotel? ...[Read More]

Between button-mashing and VR stick-waving it’s all too easy to miss some magnificent game releases. Not any more, though.
