The latest Alienware 17 might be the most Alienware gaming laptop Alienware have shipped out to Alienware customers in quite a while. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it does live up the brand’s legacy in all the right ways.

When presented with the wide canvas of the cyberpunk genre and the brush of modern video game, Daedalic have opted for the familiar rather than the transgressive. There’s plenty of cyber here but little punk.
When the light is cast just right and the shadows align, We Happy Few can look and feel like the subversive, systems-driven romp that it desperately wants to be. But most of the time, it just doesn’t quite pull off this trick.
Set in the dilapidated ruins of a fallen kingdom, Dead Cells sees you take control of a nameless, headless, warrior caught up in a grim cycle of death and reincarnation. Appropriately, this premise translates into a format and structure that’s as muc...
Courtesy of a few post-launch refinements, Hello Games’ lofty ambitions to build a universe simulator now delivers impressive results. However, like Minecraft, the exact mileage you’re going to get out of those results is ultimately going to come dow...

The X-Bows was my first dive into the world of ergonomic keyboards, and while I didn’t necessarily come away a convert, I can definitely appreciate the niche-within-a-niche the product is catering to.
If you’re the kind of person who can honestly consider the external GPU life a good fit for them, the Razer Core X holds up as one of the most-reliable, mass-market options out there.
Like any great trilogy-ender, The Banner Saga 3 leaves you satisfied with a story well told and itching to start things over again from the beginning.
Whilst this expansion isn’t bursting with new content, what it sums up to is a nice add-on to an already incredible game, and with the DLC only costing $5 digitally, picking it up is an obvious choice.
The HTC Vive Pro is - by-far - the best VR headset money can buy. However, the lack of significant differences between the experiences you get out of it and the regular Vive leave the Vive Pro looking more like a luxury product than it is a landmark ...
