Film Review: The Bookshop (UK, 2018) will make you want to stay home and read a book instead

Isabel Coixet has always been a talented filmmaker, making understated drama films dealing with issues like existentialism and inner turmoil to great aplomb. Although there have been some highs in her filmography like My Life Without Me and The Secret Life of Words (both starring the talented actress/director Sarah Polley), her last few films have signaled a steady decline in quality....

Games Preview: World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Beta (PC, 2018): Back to Warcraft

I’m going to assert something here in the intro par, something that I cannot prove but that I have suspected for a while. I think Blizzard is working on, at the very least, a Warcraft 3 remaster and I think Battle for Azeroth is the latest in a series of significant hints that the series’ strategic roots are coming out of retirement. The beta version of World of Warcraft‘s latest expansion Battle for Azeroth only served to reinforce this notion for me. Let me explain.

Games Review: Detroit: Become Human (PS4, 2018): Quantic Dream goes back to the future

Detroit: Become Human is finally upon us. Quantic Dream have had players waiting for over four years for their follow-up to the Beyond: Two Souls. Detroit is, in many ways, the end point of Quantic’s “Kara” tech demo from 2012. It’s disarming, strange, interesting and delves deep into the uncanny valley. Continue reading Games Review: Detroit: Become Human (PS4, 2018): Quantic Dream goes back to the future

The Razer Core X will let you turn your laptop into a desktop gaming rig (with a couple of caveats)

It doesn’t take long for a laptop, even one in the gaming tier, to start feeling long in the tooth. On the PC, there’s no upper limit on the hardware required for optimal gaming performance, and this is often to the laptop’s detriment. Razer’s Core series has been trying to find a workaround for that for a few years now, creating external graphics card cages that let you give your laptop a shot in the arm. That hardware series is about to come back with a bit of a refresh — the Razer Core X. Continue reading The Razer Core X will let you turn your laptop into a desktop gaming rig (with a couple of caveats)

The new Razer Blade laptop is their thinnest and fastest yet

Hardware and peripheral maker Razer have made a name for themselves in the gaming PC market in the last decade, giving competitors like Alienware a run for money with high-end hardware and sleek exterior design. Another year means a product refresh and the 2018 Razer Blade is here. At 15.6″ and 0.66″, it’s Razer’s thinnest 15-incher yet, but don’t its small stature fool you into thinking they’ve had to skimp on specs. Continue reading The new Razer Blade laptop is their thinnest and fastest yet

Melbourne would fare better than Sydney in a zombie apocalypse according to new State of Decay 2 study

If you’re a researcher, it must be fun when PR comes to you with a dopey pitch. I’m sure the Centre for Disease Management and Public Safety at Melbourne University had a great time with Xbox ANZ’s pitch for a study to promote State of Decay 2. Its focus: “How would cities in Australia and New Zealand fare in a zombie apocalypse?” Good news, there’s no actual zombie apocalypse in progress because we’d be properly boned if there was. The bad news? The baby boomers want to go it alone and the rest of us would all probably have to move to Darwin.
