Top Ten video game ninjas

In the hallowed words of Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni: “Ninjas kick butt! Cowabunga!” We couldn’t have put it better ourselves. Ever since we were old enough to make impromptu swords out of cardboard tubes, our intense love for Ninjitsu has known no bounds. In addition to inventing pyjamas and balaclavas, they can walk on water, kill people with flying death-stars and communicate with strange beasts. What’s not to love?

Top Ten video game ninjas

Along with Nazis, zombies and Nazi-cum-zombies, ninjas are a major staple of the video game industry. Whether you’re playing an RPG or a side-scrolling beat ‘em up, you’ll usually find at least one masked martial artist thrown into the mix. They refuse to be curtailed by gravity or genre – and gaming is all the richer for it. To celebrate the announcement of Street Fighter X Tekken, we’ve collated a list of the hardest, coolest and downright sexiest ninjas ever to grace our video game screens. So sit back and watch the shadows dance!

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
