OnePlus 6 Red hands-on: This is the one to get

This hot new color goes on sale July 10.

The OnePlus 6 is easily the best-looking phone OnePlus has released to-date, and while Mirror Black, Midnight Black, and Silk White are all fantastic colors, there’s one that’s been noticeably absent so far — the striking Lava Red from the OnePlus 5T.

Thankfully, that’s now changing as OnePlus has officially unveiled the OnePlus 6 Red.

As soon as you take it out of its box, the OnePlus 6  [Read More…]

Jump Force: Hands-on impressions from E3 2018

After dazzling with its trailer at E3 2018, this demo was sadly lacking.

Republic Relay hands-on: A fantastic take on a kid-friendly ‘phone’

It’s still early days, but there’s a lot of potential to these fun little squares.

My 9-year-old came home from the first day of school this year and asked for a phone of his very own, and I laughed. His 13-year-old sister doesn’t even have her own phone yet, and I didn’t have one until I was much older that they are now. But as we talked, he explained many of the kids in his class had  [Read More…]

Skull & Bones for PlayStation 4: Hands-on impressions from E3 2018

This game will be familiar to anyone who has enjoyed boat combat before, and sadly doesn’t offer much else.

Ubisoft’s E3 presentation didn’t detail much we didn’t already know about their new IP, Skull & Bones. We saw more pirates and some fun catch phrases, but nothing to suggest the game was more than pirates in ships fighting one another. And even after playing the upcoming PlayStation 4 game myself for half an hour, I’m convinced that’s  [Read More…]

Metro: Exodus for PlayStation 4 – Hands-on impressions from E3 2018

Metro: Exodus promises freedom of choice and a challenge of a scavenging system, but it’s hard to get a good grasp of it from one demo

After several years of silence, Metro: Exodus reemerged from its nuclear bunker and is ready to continue the story originally conceived in the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky. Its trailers have thus far promised a challenging scavenging and crafting system needed to fuel the game’s combat, but there’s far more to it  [Read More…]
