    Nvidia’s Shield Tablet is among the first non-Nexus devices to get Android 5.0 Lollipop, and it starts rolling out today.

    Asus Republic Of Gamers G551M Gaming Notebook Review

    Gaming laptops are a hard needle to thread. On the one hand, you need something that’s portable enough to be considered an actual laptop. On the other, you need it to have enough power to handle some of the latest and greatest games available for PCs, and not at minimum graphics settings (which doesn’t count). Plus, it’s always nice if the computer also doesn’t look… Read More

    The Lesson Of Monument Valley

    I’m fascinated by the reviews left by Monument Valley players after learning that new content was going to cost an extra $2. Why does something so apparently ordinary generate such resentment? Read More

    Facebook Will Monetize Games With Ads, Not Messenger

    How is Facebook going to monetize Messenger? Not by featuring games in the app like Korea’s KakaoTalk, at least for now. Instead, Facebook could concentrate on solving new problems with Messenger. When I pressed Facebook’s EMEA Director of Platform Partnerships Julien Codorniou about whether Messenger would become a platform that hosts non-chat experiences, he said that Facebook… Read More

    Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Review

    With Advanced Warfare, Activision is taking the extremely successful Call of Duty mostly to places it’s already been, which is to say this is a game about war, shooting, explosions and guns.

    Monument Valley: Forgotten Shores Review

    For a mobile game to be deeply moving, but also minimal enough to satisfy the needs of a casual player, is a very, very impressive feat. Ustwo accomplished that with Monument Valley, and they’ve managed it all over again with Forgotten Shores.
