Assassin’s Creed: Unity Review

Assassin’s Creed: Unity Review

What if you have a game that's so incredibly popular, your company schedules a new iteration every year - and in some cases, more than once a year? Assassin's Creed Unity happens. A massive game - a giant scope. Huge amounts of land to explore, a beautiful aesthetic throughout. But why can't I open this chest? Why am I being asked to sign up for UPlay in order to get special bonuses in a console game? You might be asking yourself the same questions about 45 minutes into the game.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar SR20 Review

Creative Sound Blaster Roar SR20 Review

The team at Creative have made something special in the Sound Blaster Roar SR20. This isn't just a Bluetooth speaker. It's not just an alarm clock. It's not just a collection of wireless and wired sound-centric features in a single package. It's part of the future - one in which multiple abilities doesn't mean lower quality in any one of those abilities. The Creative team have made a masterpiece of personal, portable sound. Multiple connections, multiple uses - a real do-everything-well machine.

DROID Turbo Review

DROID Turbo Review

This past week and a half we've been working with the DROID Turbo non-stop. With a body that replicates the popular DROID series from last year - this time in bright red - a massive battery, and specifications that match or surpass the Moto X 2014, what's not to love? As it turns out, the DROID Turbo isn't just all about its ability to quickly charge up its own massive internal battery. The DROID Turbo brings a triple-A game in basically every other way as well.

HTC Re Review

HTC Re Review

So you've seen this little pipe of a camera from HTC called the Re, but you don't know what to make of it. It's a new idea. It's a new execution. It's not something your everyday average citizen is going to recognize. But that's a good thing. The HTC Re doesn't look like a camera - not a standard camera, not an action camera. It doesn't feel like a camera either - it feels like a magic wand made to capture all the light around you.

HTC Desire EYE Review

HTC Desire EYE Review

The HTC Desire EYE seems to have one key point in its favor, at first - selfie power. But it's a whole lot more than that. Instead of a smartphone that's made for taking photos of yourself, the Desire EYE is a surprisingly well-rounded phone. And it's not a mid-tier phone either - in fact it has many of the same specifications as the HTC One M8, the company's current major hero phone. This isn't your everyday average after-thought - it's a re-imagining of the HTC One M8's key points put inside an almost shockingly well made "Desire" brand device.

Nexus Player Review – Android TV’s awkward debut

Nexus Player Review – Android TV’s awkward debut

The living room has proved to be a challenge for Google. The company which has been so successful in dominating so many of the screens we interact with on a daily basis - our computers, phones, and tablets - has perversely struggled for that most traditional of displays, the humble TV. Google TV was flabby and confusing; the axe fell on the Nexus Q before it even went on sale. Only the Chromecast has had any measure of success, and yet just when we thought Google might have a strategy, along comes a different platform again, Android TV. Running first on the Nexus Player, but set to spread to smart TVs from numerous manufacturers, it’s Google’s fourth lounge reboot, but is it really necessary?

Lenovo ThinkPad W540 Review – Old-School Pride

Lenovo ThinkPad W540 Review – Old-School Pride

The ThinkPad's distant history is pocked with no-nonsense business machines sporting plain designs and thick bodies. Those are largely a thing of the past, with the newest ThinkPads coming with a side dish of sleekness that make them stand out from systems of days gone by. Such isn't the case with Lenovo's new ThinkPad W540, a mobile workstation targeted at business users that in some ways harkens back to the old T-Series designs. That's not a criticism, mind you. There's something refreshing about a laptop that isn't partly based on being overtly stylish, instead zeroing in on functionality for those who care most about what the machine can do. Does the W540's functionality match its boardroom aesthetic, though? Read our full SlashGear review to find out!

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

The following review is going to be short and to the point. Not because it doesn't deserve more words, not because it's not an important product. We'd never do such a thing. Instead, this review is going to be short because there's not much to say that we didn't already say in our first Falcon Northwest Tiki review and subsequent crowning of the device as the best gaming PC of the year in 2013. Never mind the fact that it was actually unveiled before the year began.

iMac with Retina 5K Display Review – Powerful Pixels

iMac with Retina 5K Display Review – Powerful Pixels

It takes a lot to stand out in tech these days, but the 2014 iMac with Retina 5K display manages it. Fronted by a frankly astonishing number of very, very pleasing pixels, it’s the all-in-one that’s already luring many away from the Mac Pro order page. While you can make a solid product - even a successful one - by cherry-picking parts off a supplier’s shelf, sometimes it takes cooking up your own components if you want to lead the pack rather than just compete within it. In that vein, Apple tired of waiting for a 5K display and so created one itself, turning the now-familiar iMac design into something altogether more special.
