Join the Lenovo Legion while staying flexible

Laptops are getting thinner and the users are getting… less thin? The handy portables are even getting more flexible, like Lenovo’s Yoga-devices. What exactly does that say about its users?

You can now use party chat for Xbox on Android and iOS

Microsoft has launched party chat on their Xbox apps, which are available on Android and iOS, so now you can have a chat with your couch-potato friends while slaving away at work. The company started testing Xbox party chat in the Xbox mobile apps in December, and have now decided to officially launch the feature.

The new Call of Duty will be Black Ops IV

As if there was ever any doubt: The Call of Duty series is getting another sibling and, as is customary, it’s anticipated to drop later in 2018. If we were to take a totally ‘random’ stab at guessing the launch date, we’d put it at 2 November 2018. Activision isn’t one to mess with (any of) a winning formula.  Rumours concerning this year’s CoD have turned up early an...[Read More]

There goes all productivity: Mario Kart is coming to smartphones

Nintendo really is going after this whole mobile gaming thing hard, having brought Mario, Animal Crossing, and Fire Emblem to the mobile stage already.

Aside from a few other little items,...[Read More]

The new axe-wielding, bearded God of War arrives on 20 April

The last time we saw the perpetually angry Spartan Kratos he had slain (most of) the Greek pantheon and was mortally wounded — though he still managed to wander off, so perhaps “mortally” wounded is more appropriate. After that it was back in time for subsequent releases, but the main God of War story is back, and slated for a 20 April 2018 release. Kratos has left his home and f...[Read More]

Albion lives – Microsoft planning new Fable title

Yes, the rumours are true. Not even two years after Lionhead Studios closed, Microsoft have tasked the Playground group, the creators of the Forza Horizon games, with their next big task: to make a new Fable title. Don’t start kicking any chickens just yet, because Playground are still in the very early stages of production. So early that they cannot really comment on release dates or game d...[Read More]
