Best tablets in 2021: Perfectly portable for play and productivity

A great tablet with a bright, crisp screen and processing power can be transformative when it comes to mobile entertainment. You can enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows on the go with it, but you can also get some work done on your commute, enjoy games, or just chill and listen to music. Tablets are a dime a dozen and most electronics manufacturers have their own brand, making it difficult to discern which one is the best for your budget and unique use case. We’ve put together this guide to

Marvel's Spider-Man 2: release window, trailer, news and more

Sony's included a slew of new trailers, but few caught the eye like the one for Marvel's Spider-Man 2. Featuring both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, the trailer for the upcoming game also included up-close cutaways of the spider suit and an ominous Venom lurking in the shadows. Unfortunately, you're going to have to wait to find out what else there is to Marvel's Spider-Man 2. Helmed by Insomniac Games — which developed the last two Spider-Man offerings — we won't see this title until next yea

Stream It or Skip It: ‘Pacific Rim: The Black’ Embraces Its Dark Monster Movie Roots With a Slick Anime Sequel

Netflix’s Pacific Rim: The Black follows siblings Hayley (Gideon Adlon) and Taylor Travis (Calum Worthy), who find themselves struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic vision of Australia. It’s been ravaged time and time again by the massive and destructive kaiju, the giant monsters introduced in 2013’s sci-fi adventure Pacific Rim. After a mass but ultimately failed evacuation of Australia, some survivors remain, and the rest fell to the kaiju.

VENN | GAMING | ‘It Takes Two’ Offers a Delightful Refresh to Co-Op Adventure Genre

Though something felt as though it was lost in translation with A Way Out, Fares and the Hazelight team have stumbled onto something patently wonderful with their latest offering, It Takes Two, the new co-op adventure game slated to launch on March 26. It’s an important exercise in not judging a book by its cover (though you should absolutely judge the book in this game), as at first glance, It Takes Two seems like another pithy “you do X, I’ll do Y” co-op adventure in which things rarely change

Competitive Gaming On An NVIDIA GeForce RTX Laptop

When people think of esports and competitive gaming, giant desktop towers and monitors likely come to mind. After all, better hardware gives competitive gamers an edge, and so that means the bigger, the better, right? That may have once been the case, but the introduction of laptops with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs means one integrated device can take the place of the separate display, tower, and peripherals a desktop needs while still offering the excellent performance that esports enthus

How 1440p Gameplay Takes The New NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptops To The Next Level

PC gaming is a delicate balance of resolution and framerate. Push one of these too far and the other one suffers. This is especially true with laptop gaming, where GPUs have to be both powerful and portable. With the last few GPU generations, NVIDIA GeForce laptop manufacturers found 1080p with 144Hz, 165Hz, or 240Hz to be the sweet spot. However, with the release of the RTX 30 Series laptop GPUs we’re seeing many manufacturers leap to 1440p as the new standard for their premium gaming lines. S

How Final Fantasy VII Remake legitimizes sexuality and gender identity

In Final Fantasy VII, spiky-haired protagonist Cloud Strife fights countless battles. But when he arrives in the red-light district called Wall Market, he faces what might be his greatest challenge: cross-dressing. To rescue his childhood friend and ally Tifa Lockhart from a seedy old slumlord, Cloud infiltrates an adults-only establishment called the Honey Bee Inn. The catch: to get to her, he must go undercover as a woman.

‘The Division 2’ and ‘Resident Evil’ are getting a crossover event

The Division 2 is getting a special Resident Evil crossover, which will run from February 2-15. Details emerged during Thursday’s Resident Evil Village Showcase, where a quick trailer showed off just some of what’s included in the upcoming collaboration. In honour of Resident Evil’s 25th anniversary, The Division’s operators can be kitted out with a variety weapons and skins taken straight from classic Resident Evil games.

‘Resident Evil Village’ standalone ‘Maiden’ demo out on PS5

A short PS5-exclusive Resident Evil Village demo is now available for free on the PlayStation Store. The short narrative slice, titled ‘Maiden’, is one of two demos that Capcom plans to make available. This spring, the second demo will hit all platforms ahead of Resident Evil Village’s May release. Right now, PS5 players get the first shot at experiencing the sequel to Resident Evil 7.

VENN | GAMING | ‘Resident Evil Village’ PS5 Demo Shakes Up the Franchise in All the Right Ways

The demo appeared swiftly on the store, though it appeared to suffer a mighty blow from players flocking to download it en masse, which made a game already unavailable to a large sect of the population even more difficult to procure — keep in mind that PS5s are still scarce, after all. There will be another, separate demo hitting all platforms later this spring, but for now, PS5 owners get a chance to experience the horror first.
