Huawei Mate 9 review

Huawei has come leaps and bounds in the UK market and despite launching a number of smartphones in 2016, from the flagship Huawei P9 and P9 Plus to the mid-range Huawei Nova and Nova Plus, but that wasn't enough. The company took to the stage in Munich in November 2016 to show off the latest in the Huawei range, the Huawei Mate 9.

Best MMORPG games of 2017

MMORPGs, or massively multiplayer online role-playing games, are huge in more ways than one. As well as providing a platform for hundreds of gamers to play together at the same time, MMORPGs bring in a whopping amount of money – as much as 10 billion dollars a year, and capture an audience in the tens of millions. We’ve come a very long way in the world of MMORPGs – gone are the text-based multi-user dungeons of yesteryear, replaced by incredibly [...]

Google Home Mini review

 If you've not decided what you want for Christmas this year, let us help you with that: a Google Home Mini. (Or multiple such devices if your loved ones are feeling generous.)Why? Because it's awesome. We love the standard Google Home, but the Mini offers the same functionality at a fraction of the price. It offers a fraction of the audio quality, too, of course, but that doesn't make us love it any less. Available now for £49 direct from Google [...]

Is the introduction of Google Assistant enough to win over prospective buyers? We’ve spent some time [...]

The best gaming keyboards of 2017

For some PC gamers, having the right keyboard attached to your computer can be almost as important as the hardware inside it. However, for the uninitiated, it can be hard to see what all the fuss is about. Is there really any difference between fancy gaming keyboards and a basic £10 keyboard from Microsoft or Logitech? See all keyboard and mouse reviews In a word, yes. Different keyboards have different features, of course, but all gaming keyboards come with a [...]

Best PS4 Games

We didn't think things could get much better than 2015's PS4 games line-up, with the likes of Grand Theft Auto V, Batman: Arkham Knight, FIFA 16, Fallout 4, Star Wars Battlefront, Just Cause 3, Rainbow Six Siege and many, many more making their way on to our consoles. We were wrong, of course, because 2016 was amazing. We saw amazing games like Tom Clancy's The Division, Dark Souls III, Uncharted 4, Doom and Overwatch arrive last year, and that was just the start.

Following 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth comes The Fractured But Whole, the latest in the 2.5D RPG series that has the kids playing superheroes. It promises improvements from the first game, and a whole host of offensive jokes – but is it enough to satisfy a South Park fan and become one of the best games of 2017?We’ve spent some time fighting and cursing on the streets of South Park, and here’s what we think. Warning! The content [...]

The Xbox One comes with a tremendous controller included by default - it's easily one of the best gamepads ever made, and has the added perk of working for PC games too. Still, that doesn't mean there's no room for improvement, and if you're looking to replace your controller - or just grab a second for multiplayer - you've got plenty of great options, both from Microsoft and from third party manufacturers.
