The Oculus Quest is the company's latest attempt to bring VR to the masses -- and its best yet, providing an all-in-one, out-of-the-box experience that packages the technology's best elements into an impressive headset aimed at newcomers and seasoned virtual travelers alike.

Minecraft Earth hands-on preview: The next big AR craze Is coming

Minecraft Earth is a new mobile augmented reality game from Microsoft that has Pokémon Go dead in its sites. The cute monster collect-them-all started the genre, but Minecraft Earth is about to prove what augmented reality can really do.
Rage 2 Hands-on

Rage 2 Review

Bethesda Studios puts Avalanche Studios in the driver's seat in the second attempt at the world of Rage. Rage 2 sticks the landing when turning you into a postapocalyptic superhero, but doesn’t inspire much confidence in the things Avalanche is known for.
days gone review feat

Days Gone review

Days Gone’s predictable but well-written story is littered with repetitive missions, shoddy stealth and gunplay, and needless survival mechanics. It’s riddled with performance issues, like janky animations and consistent framerate drops. Days Gone is the first truly disappointing PS4 exclusive.
Mortal Kombat 11 review

Mortal Kombat 11 review

Mortal Kombatt 11 reinforces NetherRealm Studios’ status as the greatest western fighting developer on the planet, building on what made Mortal Kombat X so great while adding in a few new tricks. If you can only buy one fighting game this year, make it this one and save yourself the hassle.
Scuf Vantage PS4 Controller Review

Scuf Vantage PS4 Controller Review

The Scuf Vantage is the best high-performance PlayStation 4 controller you can get with all the customization options a dedicated gamer can ask for. It gives the Xbox Elite Controller some solid competition but with such a high price tag, we have a few reservations about its issues.
razer turret for xbox one review gaming keyboard  9

The Razer Turret for Xbox One will make you feel like a gaming god. Sometimes.

The Razer Turret for Xbox One brings the precision of PC gaming to console. With a sleek aesthetic, performance that rivals Razer’s own PC keyboards, and versatility, it could become a considerable option for gamers on the Xbox One. But there are a few limitations that stand in its way.
MLB The Show 19 review

MLB The Show 19 review

MLB The Show 19’s major game modes and core gameplay feel very familiar to last year, with the exception of some welcome fielding improvements. However, the new March to October mode shines, offering a fresh, engaging way to experience a season without having to sink dozens of hours into it.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice review

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice ditches some elements of From Software’s Souls formula, but make no mistake: This is the hardest game the studio has ever made, and it will kick your butt until you’re ready to cry. It makes victory that much sweeter, especially if you use the plethora of new tools, skills, and abilities at your disposal.
nintendo labo vr kit review hands on feat

Nintendo Labo VR Headset Hands-on Review

During our hands-on with the Nintendo Labo VR Kit, fears of a gimmicky product from Nintendo were quickly dispelled. Labo VR brings a clever, new way to experience VR that makes for the perfect addition to the Nintendo Switch.
The Division 2 Hands-on Preview

The Division 2 review

After spending 55 hours with The Division 2, it’s clear that Ubisoft has improved on the original in almost every way. The world is richly detailed, the story missions are wonderful, gunplay and enemy design are great, and the endgame content is worth sticking around for when the story wraps.
angry birds ar isle of pigs brings 3d demolition into your living room feat

Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs brings 3D demolition into your living room

Angry Birds is releasing its next entry in the spring of 2019 with a new spin. Bringing 3D environments and destruction, Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs uses augmented reality to add a new dimension to a classic series. Free-to-play and launching on iOS, pre-orders are available starting March 19.
Apex Legends Review

Apex Legends review

Since its launch, Apex Legends has amassed incredible popularity. The free-to-play battle royale from Respawn Entertainment has improved on the genre, bringing features and an approach that we haven’t quite seen before. It’s been a month since its release ... does it still shape up?
Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon 200 review

The Turtle Beach Recon 200 brings versatility and sound to thrifty gamers

Turtle Beach's Ear Force Recon 200 gaming headset offers superior sound quality but comes with a few drawbacks.
devil may cry 5 microtransactions dmc5nero1

Devil May Cry is an aging series, but its demon hunters still party hard

It has been more than a decade since we've been to Capcom's original Devil May Cry series, and it has returned in a big way with Devil May Cry 5. The game revels in excess to great effect, putting us in control of three characters with drastically different play-styles and abilities.
PDP LVL 50 headsets impressions

PDP LVL 50 headsets prove price doesn’t always equal quality

The PDP LVL 50 headset line offers comfort and sound quality at a price nearly any console player can afford, but one of the headsets emerged as the clear victor during our time with them. The wired headsets start at $50, and all four models use a flip-to-mute feature for the microphone.
Anthem Hands-on Preview

Anthem review

Anthem is an online shooter from BioWare that’s been compared to games such as Warframe, Destiny, and even Borderlands 2. It’s already proven to have a stunning open-world with action-packed combat that distinguishes itself with its story, characters, and lore. But will it continue to invest in those things as we get closer to the end game?
Far Cry New Dawn review

Far Cry New Dawn review

Far Cry New Dawn is essentially an extension of Far Cry 5 than a full blown sequel. It outshines its predecessor, though, in many ways. It makes better use of the open world by focusing on scavenging and crafting, and this makes the post-apocalyptic Hope County far more rewarding. It could use a better story though.
Metro Exodus gameplay.

Metro Exodus review

Metro Exodus moves the action out of the Moscow subway system and across a devastated Russia, but 4A Games’ latest shooter didn’t forget what made the series so beloved in the first place. Only occasional technical and structural issues hamper what is the best Metro game to date.
AMD Radeon VII

AMD’s Radeon VII delivers top-tier performance the old-fashioned way. Raw power

AMD's Radeon VII is its second-generation Vega video card, and strong competition for Nvidia's RTX 2080. Though it doesn't have ray tracing, the Radeon VII tries to achieve excellent performance the old-fashioned way. Raw power. Can the Radeon VII beat Nvidia's RTX 2080?
logitech g935 and g432 review g493 g4321 1

Logitech’s newest headsets sound as good as they look, but they’re not perfect

Logitech's newest gaming headsets, the G935 and G432, bring style and impressive sound to the table. With leatherette earpads, positional 3D sound, and 50 mm drivers, Logitech has become a considerable adversary amongst the competition. But as great as the new headsets are, they aren't without flaws.
Kingdom Hearts III review

‘Kingdom Hearts III’ review

Kingdom Hearts 3 features seven dazzling Disney and Pixar worlds to explore. This time around, the wondrous combat matches the magic of the scenery and characters. The overall plot is predictably convoluted, but hanging out with Sora, Donald, and Goofy once again is a near constant joy.
Dead Cells review

‘Dead Cells’ Review

Dead Cells is an indie game that blends elements from roguelite and Metroidvania genres to bring fast-paced combat pace, a complex progression system, and gameplay with plenty of secrets to uncover. Prepare to test your patience and your skill with this chaotic indie from Motion Twin.
Resident Evil 2 review featured image

‘Resident Evil 2’ review

2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake brings the legendary Raccoon City incident to a new generation of players, acting both as a nostalgic throwback and a thoroughly modern horror game with some of the best visuals of the generation and best-in-class sound and environmental design.
new super mario bros u deluxe review bario feat

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe review

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe bundles two distinct Mario Wii U experiences into one package. New Super Mario Bros. U has some of the series’ best designed levels, and New Super Luigi U packs the toughest test the franchise has seen in decades. Both are brilliant, inventive, and endlessly charming.
HTC Vive Pro Eye review

HTC Vive Pro Eye hands-on review

Little detail was given about the Vive Pro Eye during the HTC Vive press conference at CES 2019, but with the announcement of integrated eye tracking, plenty can be said about the potential of the headset. Hands-free VR, less demanding high-quality experiences, and intuitive software are all on the table.

3drudder’s PSVR controller is virtual freedom in your seat using your feet

3drudder’s foot powered controller brings a new way to move in virtual reality for PSVR. While some might argue that the seated experience breaks immersion, it tackles some of the mediums most common issues and provides a sizeable new option to the platform.

Gear Club Unlimited 2 review

marvels spider man silver lining impressions review

‘Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining’ sends Spidey off in style

Marvel's Spider-Man: Silver Lining offers an exciting end to The City That Never Sleeps DLC saga. Silver Lining doesn't have much new in terms of mission variety, but it has the best side content from the three-part expansion. A renewed emphasis on the major characters gives it a lot of heart.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate

‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ review

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a loving tribute to Nintendo and gaming history. A terrific multiplayer fighter in its own right, even single-player fans have plenty to love this time. Extra DLC characters will flesh out the already enormous roster of famous fighters and will keep Switch owners occupied for a long time.
Just Cause 4 review

‘Just Cause 4’ review

Just Cause 4 is filled with high-octane explosions and ridiculous stunts. While the spectacle of it all is a literal blast, the world is shallow and feels like a retread of Just Cause 3, a game that launched three years ago.
playstation classic review feat 2

PlayStation Classic review

Sony has entered the mini-console fray with its very own PlayStation Classic. There’s no doubt that the PS1 era saw many great games, but Sony has not honored that legacy. Instead, we get a collectible that capitalizes on the cute mini aesthetic but falls short just about everywhere else.
Spider-man Hands-on

‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ review

‘Marvel's Spider-Man’ manages to live up to its beloved predecessors and stand aside giants like the Batman ‘Arkham’ games, reveling in letting players do everything a spider can -- while also telling a compelling story, and providing a sandbox that's a blast to play in.
