Outlast PS4 Review

Outlast PS4 Review

When you happen upon Outlast for PlayStation 4, you'll find it tagged with some rather heavy-looking warnings. Heed them all. This game is not for the weak-hearted. If you've got a PlayStation Network account you'll be able to download the game for free - otherwise it'll cost you a cool $19.99 - completely reasonable for one of the most highly rated horror games of 2013, right? Ten minutes of download time (at least) might have you reconsidering.

Facebook Paper review: Zuckerberg finally “gets” mobile

Facebook Paper review: Zuckerberg finally “gets” mobile

Facebook and mobile haven't had an easy run of it. Facebook Home, an attempt to capitalize on mobile with a near-walled-garden met with derision and faded with barely a whimper; so far, the only real success stories Facebook has had on smartphones have been the results of acquisitions, not its own development. Paper, new for 2014, aims to change all that, an iPhone-exclusive news reader that promises the best shared content from your friends as well as trusted third-party sources. It's a handsome app, that's clear, but does it do enough to usurp Flipboard, Pulse, and others from the homescreen?

Call of Duty: Ghosts: Onslaught Review

Call of Duty: Ghosts: Onslaught Review

There's one whole heck of a lot of disagreement this season on how Call of Duty: Ghosts aught to be reviewed. While we didn't find it all that terrible, quite a few gamers out there disagreed with our assessment - heavily. Because of this - and because the cry against our review was so radically one-sided, we decided to take another look at the game, playing now for weeks on end to get in as deep as possible to see things from every gamer's perspective - and now comes along Onslaught, complete with a new weapon, four new maps, and none other than one of the most menacing horror movie villains of all time: Michael Myers.

LG G Flex AT&T Review

LG G Flex AT&T Review

With the AT&T version of the LG G Flex, we're getting another look at what it means to work with what this manufacturer calls the world's first curved, flexible display. While we did get a rather healthy look with our LG G Flex Review back in December, our US-based review here and now gives us the states-based vision. The carrier-based vision, that is, and from a slightly different reviewer's perspective as well.

Pebble Steel Review

Pebble Steel Review

Pebble might not agree that 2014 is set to be the year of wearables: the smartwatch startup closed out last year with one of the most compelling devices in its category, taking the original Pebble from Kickstarter hit to shipping product and finally developer's darling. Now there's a second version, Pebble Steel, on sale alongside the first smartwatch for those who want a little more bling with their wrist-mounted apps. With high-spec alternatives like Samsung's Galaxy Gear, and the constant chatter of an Apple iWatch on the horizon, you could've forgiven Pebble for going all-out with the spec list, but in fact Pebble Steel shows surprising restraint. Method or madness? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Narrative Clip Review – A wearable camera with context

Narrative Clip Review – A wearable camera with context

Can you remember what you were doing last week? How about last month, or a year ago? Life-loggers like Narrative's Clip promise to make that possible, a wearable camera snapping a photo every thirty seconds and then curating the best moments for you to look back through. The Swedish start-up took Kickstarter by storm back in late 2012, and has finally begun shipping the Clip, but does it do enough to warrant room on your lapel, or is it just all too creepy? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Review

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Review

We're in an era of reboots in the greater gaming universe, that's for certain, and games like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition are taking the term as lightly as possible in an upgrade from one year to the next. Like the current trend in seasons of a smartphone, Square Enix has opted to suggest: if it isn't broken, just make it look better. While we never really saw any iteration of Tomb Raider in 2013 as a title that needed some visual finessing, here it's made rather clear: sometimes you don't know what you want until it's been given to you.

Meizu MX3 Review

Meizu MX3 Review

With the release of the Meizu MX3, the company once again aims high with their ability to create a high-end device that, at first, looks like it'd be able to compete with the finer solutions by the top manufacturers in the USA. What we've got here instead - in this current international edition of the device - is a machine that'll be able to compete with brands in China and surrounding markets with a look that's smooth, abilities that are quite nice, and Android 4.2-based Flyme OS 3.0 - read: rather unique.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Review

Call of Duty: Ghosts Review

With a Call of Duty game coming out at least once a year for what seems like forever, it’s not easy always seeing the newest title for what it’s worth, especially when it comes to multiplayer. With Call of Duty: Ghosts, you’ve got the first title from this series to be released to the next-generation consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Because of this, we’re able to take on a new era regardless of the changes Infinity Ward has made - but is it enough?

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

To say that Sony is participating in the current “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” trend would be an understatement if you’ve been keeping track of their hero Xperia smartphone lineup. In the Xperia Z1S, we’ve got essentially the same build as in the internationally-aimed Xperia Z1, here coming to T-Mobile with the carrier’s Uncarrier plans attached, and just as much power as the original. In other words - if you liked the Xperia Z and were looking forward to the just that-much-better Xperia Z1 “Honami”, this is your winning ticket.
