Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor Review: A fun, but short, addition

Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor Review: A fun, but short, addition

If anything, it should be clear by now that Pokemon Sword and Shield represent some big departures for the series in general. For starters, they’re the first main-series games on a home console. Then we had the whole Pokedex controversy and the fact that a significant number of Pokemon were culled - the first time in the series that has happened. Now, for the first time ever, we have DLC, which seems to be taking the place of the “enhanced edition” we’d typically see release after paired games (à la Pokemon Yellow after Pokemon Red and Blue or Pokemon Platinum after Diamond and Pearl).

Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron concept previews crossover EV for 2021

Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron concept previews crossover EV for 2021

Audi was the first German car brand to release a production-ready electric SUV: The e-tron, a vehicle unmistakably an Audi with its familiar silhouette and bold Singleframe grille. The e-tron SUV has none of a modern electric car's quirkiness, which is either a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it: Audi's search for something with mass-market appeal left it looking pretty much like a conventional gasoline-powered SUV. If you’re pining for more style in your electric Audi SUV, though, the German carmaker has unveiled the 2021 Q4 Sportback e-tron.

Hamilton is one of those benchmark Broadway musicals, like Phantom of the Opera or Wicked, that changed the game and generated insane amounts of hype when it first premiered.

2020 BMW M235i xDrive Gran Coupe Review – Heritage Heresy

Nobody asked for the 2020 BMW M235i xDrive Gran Coupe, but that's not to say there's not an audience for a feistier, crossover-adjacent, heritage-inverting sports sorta-sedan.

2020 Cadillac CT4-V First Drive – Balanced on the Edge

That's a lot for not so much money: could this newest "V" simply be trying too much at once?

North bought by Google: Shuts down Focals 1.0 and 2.0 smart glasses

Smart glasses-maker North has confirmed it is being acquired by Google, and it's bad news for anybody looking forward to the company's second-generation Focals 2.0 - or who currently uses the Focals 1.0.
