Amazon Fire TV Stick (3rd Gen) review: You should probably buy a Chromecast

Amazon Fire TV Stick (3rd Gen) review: You should probably buy a Chromecast

Amazon has been producing Fire TV streaming sticks for several years now, but most of them have been mediocre at best. That’s what you’d expect for the bargain-basement price Amazon is charging. The cheapest 1080p-only Sticks have used bottom-of-the-barrel processors, making them unbearably-slow compared to a Chromecast or Roku, though the upgraded hardware in the Fire TV 4K isn't nearly as bad.

31 temporarily free and 34 on-sale apps and games for Wednesday

31 temporarily free and 34 on-sale apps and games for Wednesday

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, it would appear things are getting back to normal, and so today's list is on the smaller side, though I still have a few noteworthy titles to share with everyone. First up is Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition, a quality CRPG that's often on sale but is still a worthwhile pickup if you've never played. Next is Prune, a minimal puzzler that's also very relaxing, and last up is Love You to Bits, an enjoyable point and click adventure game that offers excellent 2D graphics. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.

The Snapdragon 888 is a surprisingly big step forward

The Snapdragon 888 is a surprisingly big step forward

Last year, I said the Snapdragon 865 was the most important smartphone chip in years. I meant that, and stand by it, because it was the chip that introduced 5G to the (relatively unenthusiastic) masses and ensured that 5G would be a standard feature on most mainstream phones going forward. The Snapdragon 888 doesn't have that same wireless generational leap as its predecessor, but the architectural changes to Qualcomm's newest silicon actually do feel more significant this year. Let's break it down.

Starting with the CPU, Qualcomm is rejiggering its approach once again, featuring a new ARM Cortex-X1 "supercore" alongside 3 smaller mid-core and 4 small cores, making up what Qualcomm calls the Kryo 680.

Hands on with Immortals Fenyx Rising, a new open world RPG best played with the voiceover turned off

Hands on with Immortals Fenyx Rising, a new open world RPG best played with the voiceover turned off

It's always exciting to see a renowned game studio launch a brand new IP, especially when that studio designed some of the biggest hits of the decade, like Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Watch Dogs, and Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. Originally teased at E3 2019 under a different name (and with a different main hero), Immortals Fenyx Rising promises a new adventure set in the annals of Greek mythology. I've been playing Ubisoft's latest title on Stadia for the last couple days, and these are my early impressions.
