The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
5.00

1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Skyrim represents the culmination of a long balancing act, of all Bethesda's learned and mastered about epic nonlinear play. It's a triumph of freeform design, less a roleplaying game like so many popular D&D-haunted others than a glimpse of what ...

From Dust
5.00

2. From Dust

From Dust is essential stuff, though it’s better as an example of interactive art or a virtual ant farm than a traditional “game” experience.

Batman: Arkham City
4.75

3. Batman: Arkham City

It’s like Arkham Asylum on steroids. Fans of the previous game will lap this up, and fans of Batman in general won't be disappointed.

Mass Effect 3
4.50

4. Mass Effect 3

Like its predecessors, Mass Effect 3 is engaging and addictive. You really do get to step into Shepard's shoes where the choices you make a difference and impact the lives of other characters in the game. Highly recommended.

5. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

It’s rare to see a new RPG franchise hit the market with this level of production values. It’s worth checking out for that reason alone

6. Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition (PS Vita)

Anyone who already has played these games to death won't get much more out of them. For anyone new to the series, or anyone who hasn't had the opportunity to play the games before, go out and get this disc ...

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded

Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends

9. Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends

Warriors fans may as well count this as a must-have. The quality is there and there's a solid 20 more hours to fly though everything.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Andrew Grant

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Mark Escubio

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.
