Hot off the April release of its last gaming mouse, the precision peripheral furnaces over at Logitech continue to burn bright with the announcement of the G402 gaming mouse, also known as the Hyperion Fury.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Adam: My experience with Monster Hunter is very limited, so I can’t speak on any major changes made. I was impressed with the methodical gameplay though, it seems like it could really reward planning in the full game as each piece of equipment offers such varied strategy and execution.

Thanks to twenty years of Mario games, it’s an incredibly intuitive toolset: You already know what each block,...

Hands-On: Habitat

Jul 17, 2014

You take a nice space shuttle full of humans looking to survive in outer space, and then you strap a variety of recognisably human-related objects together and hope for the best. It’s only recently hit early access and is sitting on version 0.1 which, understandably,...

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Adam: I was looking forward to seeing this the most, having been a huge fan of Captain Toad’s levels from Super Mario 3D World. It’s exactly that but with some new mechanics. The haunted house level had doors that led to one another, set into walls that you could move with the gamepad, which will hopefully be...
