Hottest Video Games to buy this Christmas

Ask any casual gamer which title they would like most to have this Christmas, and you can bet any money you want that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 will be on the tip of their tongue. Yes yes, we know, we have heard it all before – surely there’s more to video games this year than the multi-million selling first person shooter? Of course there are; and if Santa…

GAMEfest event review

GAMEfest event review

Eager gamers got the chance to play this year’s most anticipated games at last weekend’s GAMEfest – we jumped in the car and set sail to the Birmingham NEC to see what’s hot and what’s not at the very first GAMEfest. September actually see’s two computer game conferences within week of each other; this weekend saw the inaugural show from UK retailer Game and their aptly name GAMEfest. And this…

Nintendo at E3: Wii U and endless unanswered questions

Nintendo at E3: Wii U and endless unanswered questions

Nintendo has just finished its E3 press conference and as many had predicted they did show off their new console which has been named Wii U – but in true Nintendo fashion they did their way by only showing off the revolutionary controller and not the actual console itself. It was more like a half unveil with the actual console being shown off properly sometime in the future. Quite why…

Roxio Game Capture

Roxio Game Capture

The Roxio Game Capture has been designed to let you record and edit your Xbox 360 and PS3 best moments on your computer. That’s great, but we’ve got a better use for it: plugging your PS3 into your laptop. If you’re under 18, you’ll know what it’s like. You have your powerhouse of a laptop, but your super-hot games console is tied to your living room TV. And your mum’s…

Nintendo 3DS review of reviews

The Nintendo DS, along with the Wii, has managed to change the face of gaming. Even the least games-playing types have managed to have a go at Brain Training, or have squeezed in an exercise session in on the Wii Fit. Certainly among primary-school children the DS is the gaming console of choice, whether they’re in the car or on a train – and it’s a piece of kit that…

SEGA Megadrive come back alive with BLAZE

SEGA Megadrive come back alive with BLAZE

We all know there are no new SEGA consoles, right? Wrong. No, we’re not going to see a Dreamcast II anytime soon (or, probably, ever). In fact, it’s a far earlier system that’s getting a revamp: the Megadrive. SEGA has teamed up with BLAZE in a marriage of capital letters to produce two brand new versions of the classic console. The first is a 19mm thick handheld with 20 pre-loaded…

DC Comics Universe Online review

DC Comics Universe Online review

Nerdy enough to like comics but not quite at the stage where World of Warcraft style MMORPGs have opened their black hole and sucked in all your free time? DC Comics Universe Online could well be the gateway drug you need (and yes that is probably the loosest definition of need I’ve employed in quite some time). As every good comic book nerd knows there are two major comic book…

Latest Gadgets visit MCM Expo: Gran Turismo 5, Mavel Vs Capcom 3 and Assassin’s Creed:Brotherhood

MCM Expo in London is often considered London’s answer to Comic–Con. LatestGadgets had a chance to attend the MCM Expo where the hottest movies, comics and games were all on show. Navigating through the CosPlay fans in Full Metal Alchemist and Samurai Champloo outfits was interesting but we did eventually fought our way to the games area. There were games for all the consoles on show and we got a…

Playstation make their Move

Playstation make their Move

So, the much vaunted Playstation Move was finally unveiled this month at the GDC conference in San Francisco, and Sony are hailing it, somewhat unexpectedly, as the ‘next generation of motion gaming’.  The question is, however, is it little more than a Wii wannabe, and Sony’s attempt to muscle on the market that them bods at Nintendo have cornered so well? The answer, it would appear at this early juncture…
