The all-electric Lamborghini that anyone can afford

By 2 July 2014

Even second-hand a Lamborghini Murcielago will set you back considerably more than £100,000, but not at John Lewis as it expects to shift several of them in time for Christmas for considerably less. And its version is all-electric to boot. Okay, the... >>

Sony Alpha A6000 review

By 2 July 2014

The Sony A6000 is, in some respects, the older NEX-6 reincarnate. Which puts it in good stead: as far as interchangeable lens cameras go, the NEX-6 was one of our favourite small scale models with a built-in electronic viewfinder, so the Alpha A6000 arrives... >>

This is the most terrifying thing you'll ever play: Alien: Isolation on Oculus Rift

By 1 July 2014

When we played through a decent chunk of the forthcoming new Alien-licensed game from Sega, we already proclaimed it one of the scariest experiences we've had in gaming. But playing Alien: Isolation on an Xbox One in a darkened (overheated) room is like... >>
