Destiny review: Lonely planets

Destiny is one of the most high-concept releases to ever reach home consoles. Combining some of the most beloved elements of massively-multiplayer online games with the pedigree of one of the most heralded FPS developers of the past decade, it was nearly impossible to imagine a reality where Destiny didn’t live up to the hype.

For the early adopters among us who can’t wait to get our hands on the latest technology, two-year contracts can be endlessly frustrating.

In order to alleviate some of that pain, Verizon is allowing anyone with an upgrade date on or before November 15th to upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus starting this Monday. More →

The brand new Moto X will be available to preorder starting tomorrow

Motorola staged an incredible comeback with the Moto X. When we reviewed it last year, we called it “the first iPhone of the Android world,” which leaves some big shoes to fill for its successor. Fortunately, Motorola seems to have defied the odds with its updated Moto X, which we were thoroughly impressed by during our first hands-on impressions with it. Now you can get your hands on a new Moto X of your own as preorders begin opening up this week. More →

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 →

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?
