It’s absolutely remarkable how badly people want the iPhone 6

If it hasn’t been made clear from the sheer volume of articles we’ve posted on the topic in the last 24 hours, a lot of people tried to order the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last night. So many, in fact, that some sites and networks began to cave under the pressure of the hundreds of thousands of anxious Apple fans hoping to get in line before the first batch sold out. More →

Meet the iPhone fan who’s really annoyed about the iPhone 6… but will still buy one anyway

If you’re a fan of Apple’s products, it’s hard not to get caught up in the inevitable hype leading up to a keynote address. Despite all the leaks, all the blog posts and all the endless analysis, a new iPhone still somehow seems fresh and new when Apple finally pulls back the curtain, but not everyone was impressed with the company’s latest reveals.

AT&T to support WiFi calling from iPhone 6 starting next year, should help with network congestion

T-Mobile made a splash earlier this week when CEO John Legere revealed that the “Un-carrier” would be the first U.S. carrier to support WiFi Calling and texting on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. WiFi Calling support for iOS 8 was one of the biggest surprises during Apple’s media event on Tuesday, but other than the T-Mobile partnership, we didn’t hear much more about the potentially exciting new feature.

Nintendo is hosting an 8-hour live stream of the best new Wii U and 3DS games

With all the doom and gloom surrounding the Wii U, it’s easy to forget that Nintendo still (occasionally) puts out some of the best games on the market. Super Mario 3D World was certainly a contender for game of the year last year, and now Nintendo is prepping what looks to be a solid, if scant, holiday lineup for 2014. More →

You can build a gaming PC on par with the PS4 and Xbox One for $399

Ever since the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One last fall, the focus of the gaming world has shifted almost entirely to consoles. Watch Dogs and Destiny have received more attention than any other games over the past year and the holiday season is right around the corner, but even as Sony and Microsoft steal the headlines, PC gaming is still growing at a rapid pace.

Your iPhone 6 won’t have a sapphire display after all – here’s why

Apple’s media event on Tuesday was everything Apple fans had hoped it would be: there were bigger phones, a promising new service and even a smartwatch — but one key component was missing. Where was the sapphire? Although Apple announced that the Apple Watch would feature a sapphire display, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are sticking with glass. Worst of all, sapphire-equipped iPhones were still on their way just weeks ago.

Watch connoisseur offers the smartest take on the Apple Watch yet

The reaction to the Apple Watch seems to be split right down the middle. Over 9500 BGR visitors voted in the poll we hosted on our website regarding the watch’s design — the results show a roughly a 50-50 split over whether they like the watch’s design or not. The fashion world was similarly indecisive, with some designers claiming that the Apple Watch was destined for collaboration with expensive brands while others decided it was too masculine. More →

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Conan parodies Apple’s iPhone 6 commercial

It’s common knowledge that Apple takes its products very seriously. Tim Cook was uncharacteristically giddy on Tuesday as Apple unveiled a new line of devices, but the introduction videos showcasing the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch were as solemn and moody as anything the company has ever produced. No top 40 radio hits, no celebrity guests — just slow motion product shots and emotional piano music. More →

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Review

‘Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call’ review: Take a bow

‘Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call’ review: Take a bow

It’s not easy to build a critically successful series around fan service, but that’s exactly what Square Enix has done with the Theatrhythm games. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy was a well-received rhythm game for the Nintendo 3DS that featured dozens of songs to play along to and plenty of characters to level up from the entirety of the Final Fantasy series. Curtain Call is it sequel, and although not much has changed, the additions should be more than enough to entice fans of the original. More →

Amazing new Microsoft project may bring Xbox One games to your browser

Before Microsoft and Sony announced their new consoles, rumors had begun running rampant in regards to what these new systems might be capable of achieving. Would physical copies of games become relics of the past as digital downloads took their place? Would our lives be monitored by compulsory motion-tracking cameras?
