Fallout 4 VR review: An epic sense of scale bolsters this janky VR port

Fallout 4 VR makes a terrible first impression. Boot it up and it’s immediately clear it wasn’t built for VR first and foremost. The main menu does that thing where it’s just the original 2D menu projected in empty space. The “War never changes…” intro does the same. Then when you get into the actual game, you see a rudimentary version ... Read More »

Cambridge Audio CXUHD 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player review: A classy chassis with Dolby Vision

When it comes to looks, opening discs quickly, and quality of playback you can’t do any better than Cambridge Audio’s $700 CXUHD 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. At least for digital audio. Analog audio output is missing in action, so melding the CXUHD with older or retro sound systems will require a converter. The CXUHD is an all-metal (chassis and ... Read More »

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus PC review

There are bits of Wolfenstein 2 that I can hardly believe exist. I have come to terms with the alt-history, the Nazi super-tech, the weird juxtaposition of hyper violence, melancholy, and humour that now defines the series.

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Review

It’s not very often that two new iPhone models are upstaged at their own launch, but that’s exactly what happened at Apple’s September event this year. The iPhone X was the star of the show, the cool new kid everyone wanted to hang out with, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were relegated to the role of the ... Read More »

Fitbit Ionic review: A great fitness tracker, a mediocre smartwatch

My first few hours with Fitbit Ionic were horrid. Mind you, it wasn’t the device I had a problem with, but rather what I was doing with it. Before I received my review unit, Fitbit demanded that I test it first. Fair enough. What I didn’t know was that they really wanted to show off Ionic’s fitness capabilities. I did ... Read More »
