Titanfall Review

Titanfall Review

Prepare to be wowed. In Titanfall, the developers at Respawn Entertainment have made a massive name for themselves in the industry at the same time as they've ushered in a new generation in multiplayer gaming - a new generation that's long overdue. The team at EA Games have made no secret about Titanfall being a game-changer, and based our tests with the final build of Titanfall in the real world with real, live servers for Xbox One and Windows, we'd have to agree. Titanfall quite simply takes every genre it belongs to out a whole new door.

LG G Pro 2 Review

LG G Pro 2 Review

With the LG G Pro 2 we’ve got what’s essentially a mix and upgrade to the LG G2 and the LG G Flex. This device is just as massive as the curved-display monster and it works with many of the same specifications of LG’s first hero device to work with back-facing buttons. This LTE-A device also works with back-facing buttons, and this time it’s humongous.

The LEGO Movie Videogame Review

The LEGO Movie Videogame Review

Supposing you’ve not dismissed this title as another tried-and-failed movie-to-game translation, you’ll be glad to know what The LEGO Movie Videogame is just about as smooth a delivery as we’ve ever experienced. Having both the previous (rather successful) Lego video games to live up to and the (wildly successful) Lego movie to live up to, this game isn't attempting to be a stand-alone game without movie influence. Instead, The LEGO Movie Videogame attempts to be an extension of the movie universe - and it does so with flying colors.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

If the idea of blood puke turns you off, I suggest you tap back immediately. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is not a game for children or the faint of heart - or stomach. While most reviewers will be coming in to this game a hardened fan of or having despised the first installment, we're coming in with fresh eyes. Here we've got a game where you control an ancient vampire in a modern-day (or even futuristic) world from a third-person perspective with enough cutscenes to choke an elephant.

Thief (2014) Review

Thief (2014) Review

Released on a number of platforms at once, Thief is a game that - make not mistake about it - is about taking things that don’t belong to you. We’re looking specifically at the PlayStation 4 version of the game in this review - until you see specific notes about additional coverage - while the game is also coming to Windows, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. This isn’t the sort of game you’re going to want to play if you’re a big fan of short bursts of entertainment - this game is involved, and it requires your full attention for long spans of time.

Nokia Lumia Icon Review

Nokia Lumia Icon Review

Verizon has needed a new Windows Phone 8 flagship, and Nokia was the obvious choice to deliver it. Don't mistake the Lumia Icon for a side-thought in Nokia's smartphone schemes, however. On paper, at least, it takes the key things we loved from AT&T's Lumia 1520, and distills them down to a more hand-friendly scale. Does reality live up to those high expectations? Read on for the SlashGear review.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Review

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Review

With the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti comes the company’s first implementation of their 1st generation Maxwell GPU architecture. Maxwell brings what NVIDIA suggests is the most efficient GPU on the market - efficiency, that is, doing more with less. NVIDIA says they’ve increased the performance of Maxwell up per watt up 2x over Kepler.

The LEGO Movie Review

The LEGO Movie Review

I took my 3-year-old daughter to The LEGO Movie this week and she sat through the entire 100-minute film in quiet reverence. End of review. I'm an adult male who grew up with LEGO and, with my daughter, continue to play with and enjoy the creative building toy today - and I was entertained by the movie from start to finish. My daughter and I are two of the types of audience members the creators of this movie appear to have aimed for directly.

2014 Lexus IS F Review

2014 Lexus IS F Review

The 2014 Lexus IS F is an anachronism. Latest - and potentially last - in a line of performance sedans, its 416 HP, 5.0-liter V8 engine and Fuji racetrack tuned chassis spawned the F SPORT brand with which Lexus is now attempting to massage its reputation from Nyquil-on-wheels to automotive madness. Problem is, the IS F faces forced retirement from inside Lexus itself, squeezed out by the 2015 RC F Coupe and hotter - more affordable - versions of the regular IS. So, does the IS F go out with a bang, or a whimper, and should we prepare to mourn its $64k passing? We dried our eyes and slipped behind the wheel to find out.

Acer C720P Touch Chromebook Review

Acer C720P Touch Chromebook Review

In October, we reviewed Acer's C720 Chromebook, a Haswell-harboring notebook with excellent battery life and performance to match. The one thing it lacked, however, was a touchscreen, something Acer has addressed with its latest Chrome OS offering: the Acer C720P Touch, a similarly-designed laptop with a touchscreen display. We've got our hands on the Chromebook to see how it holds up compared to its non-touch brethren, which we've detailed for you in our full SlashGear review.
