Review: Acer Predator 17

AppMonday: Star Trek – Timelines

Shock horror: the latest “Star Trek” game isn’t so much a game, but rather an excuse to let Star Trek fans let go of money for a freemium title that is less about a game and more about chance and randomness.

HP goes svelte in 2016, gets gaming with HTC Vive VR

HP may have been on the brink of death a few years ago, but all of that is in the past, as HP pushes on with some intriguing hardware designs and the guts to make sure VR isn’t just about the headset, but about the computer used, too.

AppMonday: You Must Build A Boat

Games don’t come more addictive than this puzzler, mixing role-playing elements with a pixelated sense of humour and a feeling that Candy Crush and Columns will never be the same again.

Acer tackles gaming laptops hard with a real Predator

Acer has never been one to shy away from edgy looking gaming computers, but in recent years, the company has almost taken a subtle approach. Not so this year, as the company ends 2015 with a roar.

GadgetGuy 2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Drivers

We can’t all be race car drivers, but with a bit of gadgetry, we can still load our cars with gear that makes us feel more like we have a research team behind us. If you know someone in love with their car, these ideas could work a treat.

Lenovo, Razer to team up for gaming machines in 2016

Dell’s Alienware brand may well dominate the gaming sector, but the other players out there are trying to get in, too. Lenovo seems keen for a proper piece of the pie, and after producing its own gaming machines, it is teaming up with one of the heavy hitters of the gaming world next year.

AppMonday: QuizUp

The useless knowledge we all have could fill a room, and possibly an encyclopaedia, but now you can flex your trivial knowledge muscle with a game that only takes a couple of minutes but can be hyper-addictive and very competitive.
