Using Xbox Design Lab Online Software

Thanks to Xbox Canada, we got the chance to experiment with the Xbox Design Lab online software to create our own controller for the Xbox One (which we will review when it arrives).

Available now is the new Classic Space DLC, bringing to life many of those old, retired LEGO sets you probably enjoyed ...

Splatoon 2 Extended Review: Salmon Run

Our overall review of Splatoon 2 is up on the site and readable here, but we thought we would do some extended, more in depth looks at some of the specific modes in the game. First up is Salmon Run, the one mode I was most critical of in my review. Frankly, the content of Salmon Run was not what was disappointing, but rather, the limited playability of the mode itself. However, after seeing what plans Nintendo has for this mode, and how often it will be ...

Sound BlasterX Kratos S5 Speaker Review from Creative

It's been a little while since we dove in and looked at a standalone speaker system from Creative. Our last few speaker reviews have all been of the Bluetooth and NFC variety, so to get back to traditional speakers is amazing! The Sound BlasterX Kratos S5 speaker from Creative has been available for a while, but still is a great system for the low price of 129.99. This PC setup will make a great addition to anyone's office space, and although we have a few ...

Splatoon 2 Review

Not many games entice me to be online often like Splatoon 2 when it comes to Nintendo products. Even with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I generally spend way more time offline with friends locally, than online with strangers!

About there is something unique about Splatoon that makes me come back again and again, and I'm not sure I can put my finger on one reason why. Whether it's ...
