    Necropolis Review (PC/Steam)

    Necropolis is a new third-person roguelike game by Harebrained Schemes. The game has some of the usual elements of roguelike gameplay like procedurally generated levels and perma-death, but throws those elements into a 3D hack-and-slash environment. Throw in some attempts at humor (another roguelike staple), and you’ve got a solid formula, right? Well, the formula is solid, […]

    In an audio market crowded at all tiers, House of Marley has managed to carve out a small but dedicated niche for themselves.

    Moto Z and Moto Z Force Review

    Despite the smartphone market leveling off after years of torrid growth, it seems like we’ve got more choices than ever when it comes to high-end phones.

    Alcatel Idol 4S Review

    Known for making value smartphones, Alcatel has been relatively quiet in the U.S., but the company still has a strong market share worldwide.

    Star Trek Beyond IMAX Review – An Enjoyable Standalone Episode

    Star Trek Beyond does a beautiful job of immersing you in the futuristic universe of Starfleet and the Federation. On the human (or otherwise) side of things, Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, and the core cast continue to do a great job of recreating the synergy and camaraderie of the original Star Trek crew. We would […]

    The portable Bluetooth speaker market is crowded, with a long list of entries at virtually any price point. Big ones, small ones, splash-proof ones, bass-heavy ones, rugged ones and pretty ones.

    Huawei MateBook Review

    When Huawei first announced the MateBook back at MWC, it took us by surprise. Huawei has risen to become the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, but no one was expecting them to announce that they are going to start making PCs, too. Huawei is finally releasing the hybrid MateBook in the U.S., but […]

    Tesoro Sagitta Spectrum Gaming Mouse Review

    Gaming isn’t what it used to be. What was once a niche hobby is now a multi-billion dollar industry that has become so large, professional leagues have sprung up around some of the most popular online games. And, now that there’s big money in esports to go along with those leagues, everyone wants a piece […]

    Lenovo X1 Tablet Review

    Lenovo is no stranger to the 2-in-1 market — the Yoga series is still the shining example of how it’s done — but we haven’t seen as much from them in the tablet-first style. Devices like the Microsoft Surface Pro are basically supercharged tablets that can become laptop replacements with soft, detachable keyboard covers. They tend to […]

    Moshi Avanti On-Ear Headphones Review

    It’s tough to make a good pair of on-ear headphones. Caught in between on-the-go in-ears and the more sound quality-conscious over-ears, they’re expected to deliver the best (or at least the pretty good) of both worlds. They make ideal flight headphones for those who don’t want to shell out a lot of cash for premium […]

    OnePlus 3 Review

    Over the last few years, OnePlus has become something very surprising — a startup that has found success in the premium smartphone market.

    Logi ZeroTouch Hands-Free Car Mount and App Review

    Recently, I turned in a 2015 car lease which had all the infotainment bells and whistles one could ever want, short of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. I replaced this car with a 2013 model lacking all of those things, save for very basic Bluetooth connectivity. I spend a LOT of time in the car, so I am […]

    Creative’s iRoar Bluetooth speaker is being dubbed “the most intelligent speaker on the planet,” and it very well could be. The svelte desk-top speaker is not just loaded up with features, but it’s full of huge high fidelity sound.
