PC games: Hulk

Everyone loses their temper from time to time, but Dr Bruce Banner seems to have a shorter fuse than most. Getting hacked off causes a freakish transformation in him that makes Mr Hyde look like a fluffy bunny rabbit.

Originally a comic book, The Incredible Hulk was also a successful television series, and this game has been timed to coincide with the release of the movie. It’s not just available on the PC, either, with PlayStation 2, GameCube and Xbox versions due for release. However, Hulk is best suited to console gameplay. If you want to play it on the PC you’ll need a decent joypad or joystick, because trying to control Bruce Banner or the Hulk with the keyboard is near impossible.

Hulk is a huge game — it spans three discs — and if you persevere with it you will find hours of entertainment. Sadly, it isn’t of the highest quality. The graphics aren’t particularly stunning, either, with developer Vivendi Universal keeping the original comic book animation style. I guess this title will please the purists, but if you’re after lifelike visuals then this isn’t going to do it for you — expect ridiculous plotlines and naff-looking baddies.

Overall, Hulk is difficult to play, visually disappointing — there were better-looking games on the market five years ago — and it’s a bit boring. If you insist on buying this game, then get the console version rather than the PC title.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
