The Division 2 Private Beta – Wandering Washington at the end of the world

Stuff had a chance to muck around in the squad-based shooter's Private Beta over the weekend and this is the information we managed to salvage. Not a fan of long-form reading? The basic notes point to one thing: The Division 2 should be on your radar.

Marvel’s Spider-Man first impressions at Comic Con Africa

If you’re a Spidey fan in any way, make sure to get your hands on the new game by Insomniac, Marvel’s Spider-Man. The gameplay is fluid and beautiful to behold, and it’s the closest thing you’ll get to feeling like you’re flying through the New York skyline without VR.

Glance at the spec sheet and there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the S8 and ...[Read More]

Hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy View

And now for something a little bit different. Weird, even. This is the Samsung Galaxy View, an 18.4in tablet designed to fill the gap between the TV and the more modestly-sized tablets we all know and love. No, we’re not sure that gap really exists either, but the important thing is that Samsung does. So here we are. BIG IN THE BEDROOM The View’s face is big, as you’d expect, but you probabl...[Read More]
