Lucid Motors’ design chief explains the electric Air’s toughest challenge

Designing concept cars is easy. Designing a car that can actually make it into mass production, at a competitive price, and take on both auto industry heavyweights and high-profile disruptors, well, that's a whole other story. With the 2021 Lucid Air finally revealed in road-going form, I caught up with Derek Jenkins, VP of Design at Lucid Motors, to find out why a sedan, why all-electric, and what sets this particular EV apart.

FUSER might be the music game for a post-music game era

FUSER might be the music game for a post-music game era

At this point, it’s definitely safe to say that the era of rhythm and music games sparked by Guitar Hero is well and truly dead. We haven’t seen a Guitar Hero title in five years, nor have we seen a proper Rock Band release in three. When you consider that we used to get multiple Guitar Hero games each and every year, it’s safe to say that we’ve moved beyond that particular craze.

With that reveal, Microsoft surprised us by announcing both the pricing and release date details for Xbox Series S. With the Xbox Series S dated for November 10th, we figured it probably wouldn't be long before we had a release date for the Xbox Series X, and it turns out we were right, as today Microsoft officially let the cat out of the bag.

Xbox Series S revealed: Here’s what to expect for $299

If you've been following next-generation gaming news, you probably already know about the Xbox Series S despite the fact that Microsoft has kept its lips sealed up until to this point. Rumored long before even the Xbox Series X was revealed, we've been hearing a lot more about Microsoft's second next-generation console lately. After weeks of rumors and wondering when Microsoft would finally pull the veil back, today it happened at long last: Microsoft has officially confirmed the Xbox Series S.

Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal review – Gaming for breakfast

Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal review – Gaming for breakfast

How often does something get so big that it gets its own cereal? I guess the answer to that question is probably “a lot,” but I have to admit that I don’t know because I’m not really in the habit of following cereals based on pop culture phenomena. I remember Overwatch getting some kind of cereal. I’m sure there was cereal for Frozen at one point or another. As a child, I even distinctly remember seeing “Stevie’s Stars” cereal on store shelves, featuring and named after none other than famed Detroit Red Wings Captain Steve Yzerman. That, of course, was a Michigan thing, and even then it was probably only a south Michigan thing.

2020 Mazda3 Review – Paying for Stick

2020 Mazda3 Review – Paying for Stick

Somewhere along the line, a manual transmission went from being the cheap option to something drivers get as a treat. How else to describe the 2020 Mazda3, where the six-speed stick is still available but only if you cough up for the most expensive Premium trim. When you're paying at least $27,500 (plus $945 destination) for the privilege of rowing your own gears, I think it's fair to expect a more rewarding experience as a result.

2020 Audi SQ7 First Drive – More, but not Too Much

2020 Audi SQ7 First Drive – More, but not Too Much

Beastly SUVs are in fashion right now. It's not hard to see why: SUV sales in general are buoyant and there are power-hungry drivers willing to open their wallets extra-wide for a family hauler that, to be blunt, hauls ass, too. The 2020 Audi SQ7 is not the first to pair performance and usability, then, and nor is it the most powerful.

Radiation and controversy – What restoring a vintage Rolex taught me

Ask any watch fan, and they'll probably be able to tell you when they fell in love for the first time. For me, it was on July 22, 2013. There it was, a post on Facebook featuring a Rolex Red Submariner with full-box and paperwork, up for auction at Christie's auction house in New York.
