Early tests call Google Stadia’s quality into question, and that’s a shame

The visual quality just isn’t that good.

Google Stadia is a cloud game streaming service that promises the best visuals given its power advantage over the competition. When the service was first revealed, the company said that it featured 10.7 teraflops (tflops) of computational power compared to 6 tflops for the Xbox One X and 4.2 tflops for the PlayStation 4 Pro. Naturally, gamers assumed that this would mean that every game was going to be at  [Read More…]

RCA offers up 11 Delta Pro Tablet, a 2-in-1 that’s just $140

Big phones are nice and all but tablets are better for reading and consuming media. It’s true, we read it on the internet.

In all seriousness, we love the difference in performance and productivity that comes with a 10-inch screen. Factor in a keyboard and it gets exponentially better. That’s why 2-in-1 devices are so popular.

RCA understands this and wants to get in on some of that action. This week sees the brand — yes, that one — offering  [Read More…]

One Line Weekly is a big and elaborate 3D line puzzle that’s updated weekly

One Line Weekly is an indie game that quickly earned a spot on my list of the best puzzle games for Android. It’s a very elaborate puzzle game built around a simple concept that’s wholly explained in the title. All you need to do is rotate the pieces around until you create a single line, but you only have a week to work on it before the puzzle resets — and it’ll probably take you the full week  [Read More…]

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and New Light are Destiny 3 and that’s OK

Yearly sequels are something that big publishers want, but that hasn’t worked for Destiny.

In a recent ViDoc from Bungie, we got a good indication what the next five years of Destiny will look like, and nothing in that five-year plan suggests Destiny 3 is coming soon. Bungie is going all-in with Destiny 2 as a Massively Multiplayer game, and though we see some pushback from gamers, this is a good thing for all Guardians.

Bungie is  [Read More…]

The iPhone 11 has great video features, and that’s good news for everybody

No matter your feelings towards iOS as a platform, you can’t deny that the iPhone takes phenomenal video. Stabilization, color, dynamic range … all of it has been consistently great on iPhones for years, often outpacing even Android phones that take subjectively better photos. With today’s announcement of the iPhone 11, Apple just knocked things up another notch.

In case you missed the live stream, here’s the short of it: with the iPhone 11, Apple is finally adding  [Read More…]

That’s my phone, I don’t know you

Smartphones can do just about anything these days — did you know they can even make phone calls? You’ve probably gotten your fair share of spam calls in the last few years, and many carriers are actively working to prevent spam and “robocalls” from happening, but some people don’t want to receive calls at all. Whether you use VoIP services, carry a work phone that only needs access to data, or you prefer texting over calling, here’s how  [Read More…]

The Galaxy S10e is currently under $550, and that’s the best deal in town

$ 200 off your favorite small smartphone.

I’ve no qualms about recommending the Galaxy S10e as the de facto S10 in the company’s extensive (and growing) lineup this year. The S10+ is the flagship, yes, but aside from screen size and battery life has no appreciable benefits over the S10 (the second front-facing camera doesn’t count, in my opinion). The S10 itself is a great phone with an awesome design, but it’s let down by its mediocre  [Read More…]

Amazon unveils a new Echo Dot Kids Edition that’s already being discounted

Amazon has quietly unveiled an all-new Echo Dot Kids Edition which features a new, yet familiar, design, and color options unlike anything we’ve seen the company do before. At first glance, you may mistake this for a regular 3rd-gen Echo Dot, until you see the new bright Rainbow color scheme that’s being offered. Details surrounding what’s new are a bit limited right now, but Amazon does say that this speaker, like the latest Echo Dot, is 70% louder, and there  [Read More…]

Part Time UFO is an overlooked Google Play gem that’s just $2!

This week’s game of the week post is more like the gaming deal of the week. You should recognize HAL Laboratory, Inc. as the studio behind everyone’s favorite round and pink vacuum, Kirby, but they’ve also started dipping their toes into developing mobile games. Their first release is Part Time UFO, a premium crane simulator/puzzle game that has you playing as a little UFO who’s looking for work on earth by using a claw to help humans out  [Read More…]
