Razer Blade Stealth (2020)

Razer Blade Stealth (2020) review: A tiny gaming laptop with a big price

The 13-inch Razer Blade Stealth is both a fantastic work machine and a solid gaming machine—but it costs more than comparable models in both categories.

Powkiddy Q90

Powkiddy Q90 review: A solid retro gaming option

The Q90 is a cheap handheld retro gaming emulator that has some nice features but falls short in key departments.

Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 GX550 review: Two screens and a whole lot of speed

The MSI GS66 Stealth gaming laptop packs a 10th gen Core i9-10980HK, GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, and 300Hz screen into a surprisingly thin and light body.

Command & Conquer: Remastered

Command & Conquer Remastered impressions: The roots of real-time strategy, resurrected

Petroglyph's remasters of the original Command & Conquer and follow-up Red Alert are loving and well-crafted, but very much products of their day, and are "missing" many of the improvements made by those that built on Westwood's...

nimbus plus hero01

SteelSeries Nimbus+ controller review: A fantastic choice for Apple enthusiasts, but you’ll pay for it

This is the best MFi controller you can buy, but the $70 price tag makes it tough to justify.

Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath review: One of 2020's best action films (and a pretty good fighting game)

Aftermath is like a three-hour after-credits stinger for Mortal Kombat 11, adding five new chapters to an already fantastic story—though it comes at a steep price.

Legends of Runeterra review: Riot's card game may have trumped Hearthstone

It took six years for someone to make a better digital card game than Blizzard, but Riot may have done just that.

core i9 10900k 1

Intel 10th Gen Review: The Core i9-10900K is indeed the world's fastest gaming CPU

Intel's 10th gen Comet Lake S CPUs don't take the crown in multi-core performance but they close the gap enough that you may want to actually consider them.

Gears Tactics

Gears Tactics review impressions: A turn-based spinoff with shooter sensibilities

Gears Tactics is a fast-paced and satisfying spinoff, a little less thoughtful than its tactics peers but with plenty of big-budget spectacle and storytelling. It adds some smart tweaks to the underlying XCOM-like formula.

chimera squad window

XCOM meets SWAT: Chimera Squad's radical tweaks make for a refreshing spinoff

XCOM: Chimera Squad tosses key XCOM design elements out the window to give the series a whole new, yet still familiar feel. It's great, especially for $20.

Ancient Enemy

Ancient Enemy review: Somehow 'fancy solitaire' is one of my favorite games of 2020

Ancient Enemy is a beer-and-pretzels adventure you can have by yourself, a solitaire-based battler that's the perfect sort-of mindless for these times.

Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3 review-in-progress: It's no Resident Evil 2

Linear levels, an abundance of shooting, and a plethora of cheap one-hit deaths make Resident Evil 3 a grind after last year's incredible RE2 remake.

asus rog zephyrus g14

Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review: Ryzen 4000 makes this thin, light laptop a winner

The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is the world's first Ryzen 4000-based laptop. It offers stupidly good performance in a stupidly light chassis at a stupidly reasonable price.

Half-Life: Alyx

Half-Life: Alyx review: A great game burdened by astronomical expectations

Half-Life: Alyx isn't quite as revolutionary as you might hope, particularly if you're already well-versed in virtual reality, but it's undoubtedly one of the best games on the platform and hopefully the start of a resurgence for both...

Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal review: It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)

We've been to hell and back again, and you know what? It's actually pretty fun down there on the return trip, so long as you bring your own BFG 9000.
