Video: Watch us break Far Cry 4 for our own amusement

Far Cry 4 was one of my favorite games of 2014. It builds upon everything that made its predecessor great and it provides dozens of hours of fun, even beyond its lengthy campaign. To this day, my friends and I are still capturing outposts, hijacking trucks and skinning animals for a few hours every week, but we’ll all still readily admit that the game isn’t perfect. More →

Batman: Arkham Knight trailer brings violence and chaos back to Gotham

Although we were treated to three pretty fantastic Batman movies from 2005 to 2012, the future of the franchise remains up in the air. It’s not that we don’t trust Ben Affleck to do a good job, we’re just not entirely sure how DC is going to reboot the character.

Basically, change is scary — but one familiar Batman series still has one story left to tell. More →

Are Apple’s newest iOS 8 updates making your iPhone’s battery life better or worse?

Smartphone owners want it all. We want a display as bright and beautiful as the one on our televisions, a processor that will allow us to run the latest and greatest software, consistent updates to keep the experience fresh and enough apps to occupy us for the rest of our lives.

Insider says Siri and Cortana have recorded every word you’ve ever said to them

We’ve written extensively about security concerns in recent weeks, but this might be the most shocking development yet. Reddit user FallenMyst posted on Tuesday that he had recently started a new job with a company called Walk N’Talk Technologies.
