With Chromebooks becoming increasingly popular and can be found at most electrical retailers such as Argos. The HP Chromebook is the latest edition to the Chromebook line and can be bought for as little as £249.99, today we're taking a look at the new HP Chromebook 14, which is available in 'White' (basically silver), Turqoise, and Peach. Of course, we were sent the lovely bright Peach variant with DataPass, so how did it perform?
Earth Defense Force 2017 had a certain charm. It wasn't bursting with fantastic graphics, the environments weren't amazing to look at, and the overall gameplay was incredibly poor at best, but it had its charm and for me, that's what made Earth Defense Force 2017 a firm favourite in my video game collection. So when Bandai Namco announced the return of the Earth Defense Force, this time set in 2025, I couldn't actually wait. The question is, does Earth Defense Force 2025 stand up to it's predecessor?
Caesar III and Settlers 7 have never left the safety of my hard drive. They’ve been uninstalled once or twice, lost a few times...
Wires are the bane of my life. They're never long enough, they always get tangled up, and I can never get my phone out of my pocket to change the track or press the button quick enough to answer a call. That's where the Jabra Tag comes in. This dog-tag style Bluetooth mobile headset aims to tackle the fight that I have with unnecessary wires everywhere as well as offering a way to easily control music and my smartphone at the push of a button.
Firstly, how about some music? Good, let's begin! Charming is a word you don’t often find in video game reviews. Modern computer games seem to...
Have you ever wanted to play in one of those Hanna-Barbera cartoons you watched as a child? Of course you have, it would be hilarious. That special blend of slapstick, puns, and excellently times one liners packed densely together is a sure recipe for comedy gold, and that is precisely what you will find in Jazzpunk.
Leaves on the Wind promises to be something special. The canonical Firefly comic has a wealth of characters at its disposal and with the writers behind the action-filled, yet emotional, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 and 9 working on it, fans are in for a treat.
The humble Endless Runner genre has been given multiple face lifts but ultimately they're the same game. Whether you're swiping Sonic from left to right to avoid spikes, tilting Nathan Drake to collect bottles of Coke Zero, or flicking Guy Dangerous over logs, you're still getting the same experience but with a different character. So when I read about the release of Tiki Monkeys and how Milk Cap have created a game that is a "fresh take on the runner genre, adding action and strategy elements" I wanted to find out more.
In a departure from the reviews I usually write ('this game sucks, go play Saints Row IV instead') I feel compelled this week to...
Take an Excitebike cartridge, blend it with a copy of Tony Hawks Pro Skater and a zip disk containing Elasto Mania and what do you get. The least appetising smoothie ever - unless you're into eating 20-year-old grey plastic mixed with sharp shards of CD. Take each of these games then combine their best elements with the code chefs at Roll7 however, and you're gifted with one of the PS Vita's most impressive indie titles to date. A tasty morsel of OlliOlli.
Zombies. SO MANY ZOMBIES. Within the first few minutes of gameplay I was feeling a little overwhelmed...well, a lot overwhelmed.
Nidhogg has been a long time coming. This game has won numerous awards from various gaming expos and was only really available to play outside said expos in Winnitron game cabinets. So finally when Messhof announced that Nidhogg will be coming to Steam, retro gamers alike collectively squealed like a gaggle of One Direction fans, but was it worth the wait?
Let's be clear, this is branded as a standalone expansion to the series but I highly recommend that if you want to get the most out of Demons of the Past, that you purchase a copy of Spellforce 2 Gold and Faith in Destiny beforehand. I say this as an opener because the story and gameplay will confuse or at least have you pausing to rifle through a wiki to find out what the hell is going on.
KAMEHAMEHA!! Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is the latest instalment into the Dragon Ball video game franchise from Namco Bandai which features huge battles set within huge battlefields. Dragon Ball has always been a love of mine ever since the show appeared on Cartoon Network in the early 2000's and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z focuses on the DBZ franchise and features some of the most iconic battles in the series which brings with it some fantastic nostalgia and a must-have for any Dragon Ball fan.
Anybody who has played a LEGO video game will know exactly what to expect. They're fun to play and give a LEGO twist on some of peoples most beloved franchises. LEGO Marvel Superheroes is no different to previous games only this time it's huge! I've played every single LEGO game apart from the LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, which I know is where Marvel Superheroes was born from...
