This month, two PC World readers are going to be the lucky recipients of Huawei’s latest smartwatch, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro, valued at $499.
The action, the weapons, the boss battles -- Ninja Blade's got it all!
- Great action, stylish cinematics, exquisite sound effects, Todome powers
- Parasitic infestation storyline obviously "inspired" by Resident Evil
Ninja Blade is a game full of awesome moments. It's not incredibly deep and it won't redefine the genre but it's a kick-ass title that will please action junkies looking for an adrenaline kick. It does a great job of making you feel like the star of a blockbuster action flick. It's easily one of the best action games I've ever played on the Xbox 360. Now, go play it or I'll hunt you down and Todome your ass back to fifth grade.
Price$ 99.95 (AUD)
Since I first saw the trailer for Ninja Blade, I was immediately intrigued. The smooth, stylish cinematics and epic creatures alone were enough to make me squeal like a school girl.
To my delight, the game was everything I was expecting and then some. With each level, I became more and more hooked on this epic, action filled slice of ninja pie.
Ninja Blade: Ninja Medley
The year is 2015 and an infection is sweeping through the streets of Tokyo.
Carried by insidious creatures known as Alpha Worms, the infestation is threatening to overtake the city's inhabitants, transforming everything from helicopters to humans into grotesque abominations.
Members of the elite ninja task force GUIDE (it stands for Global United Infestation Detection Elimination) are sent in to deal with the mess. You step into the silent but deadly shoes of operative Ken Ogawa, a badass GUIDE assassin with powers galore as he hacks and slashes his way through the monsters running wild in the streets.
Along the way, you'll battle some ridiculous bosses, acquire some insane powers and get served a delicious stew of betrayal and intrigue.
Gameplay-wise, Ninja Blade combines the best elements of every action game you've ever loved into one homogeneous blend of deliciousness.
The parasitic infestation storyline was obviously "inspired" by Resident Evil, the fighting system pays "homage" to Devil May Cry, and the sheer size of the bosses evokes thoughts of Shadow of the Colossus.
The interactive cut-scenes with their quick-time events also bring to mind God of War. Yes, it's not exactly original but rather than slap together a poor imitation, the developers took these already established concepts and did them justice.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
