Six demons we'd love to face in Diablo III

If you know Diablo, you're already familiar with the game's demonic head honchos that filled our nightmares and our computer monitors with their particular brand of evil: Baal, Mephisto, and, of course, Diablo.

The Incredible Hulk is going to try to break the trend of poor movie-to-game adaptations. Released to coincide with the movie of the same name, the latest game from Edge of Reality sees players step into the shoes of Bruce Banner as he battles with his split personality. The game has a similar gameplay mechanism to The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, with heavy use of sandbox-style gameplay. As the Hulk, players get the chance to battle with familiar foes, including the Abomination, Bi-Beast, the Army and even Iron Man. All this is done in an incredibly realistic environment based on the movie. The game is released locally on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC on 10 July.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
