'The Elder Scrolls Online' Review

Zenimax has a lot of work to do to fix their broken MMO world.

By Nick Wilson | PCGamesN The Elder Scrolls Online is a mess. Somewhere, buried under bugs, often bizarre design decisions, and weird rookie level structural mistakes that the game makes, there is a great MMO struggling to be found. I played it for just over 30 hours, reaching level 16 (of 50) and the third zone in my faction's territory. Yes, the game is huge; Zenimax weren't joking when they announced the 150 hours average game time to end-game. But there were plenty more reasons why it took me so long to get even this far, and the majority of them were due to an endless torrent of progress-halting bugs. The Elder Scrolls Online is just not ready for players. It is a tragedy. To recap, quickly. There have been...

'Frontback' App Makes Selfies 100-Percent Less Annoying

Finally, a way to use your phone's front camera without being obnoxious.

By McKinley Noble | 04-18-2014 | 8:00AM There's few things in the mobile world more annonying than the "selfie" photo, but a new app might fix it forever. Simply called "Frontback," the idea of the app is giving proper context to any picture taken with the front camera on your smartphone by supplying a rear photo on default. It's actually a really smart tool for mobile photography, and one that we hope becomes an Android staple. Overall, Frontback is pretty slick; the swipeable UI makes it pretty easy to build two-shot pictures at the drop of a hat, and it also supports plenty of social add-ons: Facebook Twitter Tumblr "@" tags and "#" hashtags If you're a...

Facebook 'Nearby Friends' Feature Introduced

Get a little more social with Facebook's optional new location-based feature.

By Edwin Kee | Ubergizmo "There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother" is a proverb that makes plenty of sense, and even more so in this day and age. After all, your family might be staying halfway across the world, and if you were to get in trouble today and need someone to bail you out from the current predicament, which better person than a friend to do so? Having said that, Facebook knows how important friends are to one's life, which is why they have introduced a new feature that is known as Nearby Friends, allowing you to turn it on if you want to. Nearby Friends would help you figure out just who on your contact list are nearby, or on the go. We suppose it is two-way traffic if you were to enable...

'Banner Saga' and 'Candy Crush' Devs Settle Legal Scuffle

Sagas for everyone!

By Fraser Brown | PCGamesN The saga of King vs. Stoic is finally over, the Banner Saga developer announced on its website recently. The dispute kicked off over January, when Candy Crush Saga developer King filed a notice of opposition against Stoic when it tried to trademark The Banner Saga. King cited "confusion in the marketplace" as the reason. "Stoic is pleased to have come to an agreement with King regarding Stoic's The Banner Saga trademark, which enables both parties to protect their respective trademarks now and in the future," the developer posted on its website. While King looked like the villains of this drama, if King wasn't defending it's own trademark then it would set a precedent,...

Google's Project Ara Aiming for January 2015 Launch

Android users may see the future of smartphones as soon as next year.

By McKinley Noble | 04-17-2014 | 11:45AM Project Ara, product of the Phonebloks company, might be ready as soon as this coming January. According to CNET, the Android-based "build your own phone" concept is due to hit in as little as nine months, with its basic smartphone template starting at just $50 a pop. Just to recap, the idea is to make the "LEGO" of smartphone devices, with upgradable and swappable modules that can be purchased as they're needed—touchscreen display, RAM, storage, all separately. Originally, the concept was to prevent e-waste, as most smartphones are regularly disposed of as their value continues to dip. With a Project Ara/Phoneblok-based device, though, you could simply...

'Hearthstone' Review

Nick Wilson at PCGamesN sums up his run with Blizzard's amazing card combat title.

By Nick Wilson | PCGamesN There's an elegance to Hearthstone. It's a fantasy collectible card game that feels simple and yet, when you dig into the mechanics, feels extraordinarily deep. It uses characters and artwork from World of Warcraft and transmogrifies them into little cards, making them fight with fizzles, crackles and pops. I adore this game. It's simple, fun and addictive: a truly astonishing feat considering the size of the development team. Thanks to an extended and open beta, there's a good chance you're already playing it. If not, allow me the pleasure of telling you why you should. If you're new to collectible card games, they can be daunting. Learning the ropes can drain the fun from...

By Adnan Farooqui | Ubergizmo [Image via Lilliputing] Samsung made waves in the wearable market this year by launching two new smartwatches and an activity tracker. Last year, the company re-jumped on this bandwagon by launching the Galaxy Gear smartwatch alongside Galaxy Note 3. The new Gear smartwatches are a bit different—they run on Android, but Samsung didn't address one of the most criticized aspects of its wearables, the fact that they don't officially support non-Samsung devices.

'Elder Scrolls Online' Fansite Creates a Trading System

A marketplace that doesn't exist in-game, but in the TESO Elite fansite, devised by players. The official TESO Twitter account has endorsed the system, probably so the developers can get back to squashing all the bugs that have been plaguing the game since launch.
