Under the radar games: the 29 best upcoming games you've never heard of

What about all the smaller games that are cool but aren't exactly household game brands?

A Boy and His Blob

For: Nintendo Wii

A remake of the 1989 NES game, not to be confused with the DS version which is a sequel, A Boy and His Blob has me wishing it was autumn already. If the idea of having a pet blob that turns into things like a bomb and a blowtorch doesn't immediately win you over, you really need to see this game with your own eyes to be convinced of its cute awesomeness. The NES original A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia may not have been as huge as Super Mario Bros., but it's definitely good to see this inspired series being reinvigorated. --Heather Bartron (Follow me on Twitter here!)

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
