  • Beat Saber launched to Early Access in May 2018, and quickly gained a following for its fast-paced gameplay, awesome soundtrack, and lightsabers (people love lightsabers, ok?). As reported by RoadtoVR, anyone who’s purchased Beat Saber on Oculus Quest, the latest wireless VR headset from Oculus, will be able to play the game in 360 Mode – which sends blocks towards you in random directions for a more challenging and chaotic experience. While most VR games are automatically designed for headsets

  • But why, for the most part, can’t you find these products in your local Walmart or John Lewis? And why would TCL bother to make TVs that, for now at least, have little chance of making it into Western showrooms? (You can still buy the Uppleva wall mount from Ikea’s website, but the TV is nowhere to be found.) Back in 2014, TCL also showed off a seismic 110-inch curved television, named the China Star , which even today seems hugely excessive both in size and scope. Abreu puts down the difficulty

  • It’s not easy launching a foldable phone in 2019, as Samsung is quickly finding out: the latest reports from Asia suggest that its innovative Galaxy Fold handset won’t be going on sale until August. That means the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 might be out and available to buy before the folding handset that we first saw demoed back in February.

  • Nintendo of America may have a new president, but its approach to supporting the 3DS console is the same as ever: if you want it, we’ve got it. For that reason, and quite possibly because Nintendo also sees the console as “a great entry point for young gamers”, the 3DS will continue to see support. And if you have any concern that the 3DS didn’t really make much of an appearance during Nintendo’s Direct at E3, don’t fret.

  • You have to give Rocket League a lot of credit – it pioneered a new wave of action sports games. Riding that wave is Roller Champions, a new free-to-play game from Ubisoft that blends the best of Rocket League with roller derby and it’s outstanding. What makes this game special – and my new favorite PVP sports game – is that, besides being free-to-play, it’s easier to pick up and play than Rocket League. Until then, I’m totally fine for Roller Champions to be the English Football League to Rocke
