Saw II: Flesh and Blood

Rescued by Konami from failed licensed game publishing house Brash Entertainment, the original Saw, based on the "torture porn" horror film franchise of the same name, was released last year to lukewarm reviews. Its recently released sequel, Saw II: ...

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

Easily one of my favorite titles this year, God of War III pushed the PS3 to its full potential, brought the Athenian ass-kicker's trilogy to a satisfying conclusion, and, so I thought, satiated my appetite for the epic third-person action franchise....

Halo: Reach

Shortly before Halo: Combat Evolved landed like a Gravity Hammer on the original Xbox, a novel titled Halo: The Fall of Reach introduced fans to the sci-fi universe that would forever change the face of console first-person shooters.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

Way back in 1996, sometime between mourning Tupac and being subjected to Space Jam, the world was introduced to Lara Croft, a little lady with a big chest. The unlikely videogame protagonist, whose credit in the original Tomb Raider was reduced to a ...

Clash of the Titans

Months after slaying the Kraken on the silver screen, Perseus finally lands on consoles to hack harpies and slash scorpions in Clash of the Titans' game adaptation. Despite being yet another film-tied title, I had high hopes for this very videogame-y...

Singularity

Last summer, Activision released Raven Software's Wolfenstein with the sort of hype usually reserved for a straight-to-DVD Steven Seagal film. This past week they took a similar under-the-radar approach with the developer's new FPS Singularity. But a...

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Konami's super spy Snake sneaks onto Sony's portable with a cardboard box full of content, the franchise's most coherent narrative to date, sharp visuals, intuitive controls, and some of the most thumb-blistering boss battles your digits will ever ex...

Alpha Protocol

After several years of development and a seven month delay, Obsidian Entertainment's ambitious spy-themed action/role-playing game, Alpha Protocol, is finally infiltrating consoles. The studio behind Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith...

Dead or Alive: Paradise

The high-kicking ladies of Tecmo's busty, butt-whuppin' fighting game franchise make their PSP debut in Dead or Alive: Paradise, but their latest outing forgoes their usual fisticuffs in favor of frolicking on a tropical island. Much like Dead or Ali...

Army of Two: The 40th Day

Not content to only conquer the console space, Army of Two: The 40th Day's co-op killers head to the PSP for more fist-bumpin', baddie-cappin' action. While the deadly duo provide some solid top-down, arcadey thrills on Sony's hand-held, most of what...

Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage

Shaun White Snowboarding returns with World Stage, a brand new snowboarding experience created from the ground-up exclusively for Nintendo's family-friendly console. By limiting the franchise to coincide with the Wii's mainstream appeal, Ubisoft may ...

Heroes Over Europe

WW II-themed arcade flight-combat games are nothing new; this console generation has already dive-bombed us with two entries each in the Blazing Angels and Battlestations series. Heroes Over Europe -- sequel to last gen's Heroes of the Pacific -- off...

Grand Slam Tennis

Grand Slam Tennis goes far beyond a glorified version of Wii Sports' tennis once you plug in the Wii MotionPlus. Learning to control the new-found power takes some time, but the reward of an accurately placed shot will keep you coming back to the vir...

Wheelman

The latest entry from the Vin Diesel-powered Tigon Studios (and Midway Newcastle) opens with an adrenaline-spiking cinematic car chase that makes Bond and Bourne's behind-the-wheel antics look like a driver's ed class; as the titular driver-for-hire,...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.
