The Nintendo Switch is a fascinating new game console built around a novel and well-executed central idea. It also has plenty of problems that will doubtless be improved upon in a future version. Nintendo is yet again trying something new, and here we are to take the plunge alongside them.
Despite having a taste for horror movies and novels, horror video games freak me the hell out. Still, I was curious about Resident Evil 7's promise of a Southern Gothic zombie game. Like millions of other scaredy cats out there, I decided to watch it on YouTube instead of playing it.
You’re four years old, maybe five. Your parents got one of those Nintendos that everyone’s been raving about, along with a brand new game. A role-playing game.
If you looked–really looked—at the 2016 Toyota Camry, you wouldn’t expect the leggy girls in short dresses who get into the clubs for free to climb out of it. It’s humbler than that. Maybe if the leggy girl got hitched and then moved out to the suburbs, maybe. And that’s why I like it so much.
Remember that hoverboard craze? The fun toys that were mostly manufactured in China were a huge pop cultural phenomenon. That is until they started exploding and catching on fire. These cheap-ass hoverboards, which usually ran from $200 to $300, had the fatal flaw of randomly bursting into flames due to really…
I’ve heard it time and time again, “X-Crossover isn’t vehicular punishment”. It’s a statement that is as profoundly annoying as it is painfully stupid. The whole concept of a crossover is to pair the drivability of a car with the functionality of an SUV, and if that’s akin to vehicular punishment, then based of…
A BMW i3 was recently stolen with a running dashcam, and the resulting footage capturing a phone conversation between the thief and his mates absolutely raving over the hybrid-electric Bavarian is better than any BMW ad in decades.
So, you want to learn to pilot a drone, but aren’t sure where to start? Gizmodo ordered a fleet of beginner’s drones and handed them off to a total drone newbie (me) to test. The best and worst of what I found—plus many, many crashes— is all ahead.
The DJI Phantom 4 is a slick, feature-packed drone. People say it’s the drone that anybody can fly, the quadcopter that you just can’t crash. Let me be painfully clear about two things: 1) Not everyone can fly the Phantom 4, and 2) It’s pretty damn easy to crash.
As it turns out, riding a motorcycle is actually easier than walking these days. Well, at least that’s the case when riding a Harley-Davidson Low Rider S thanks to that huge 110 cubic inch motor and a torque curve as flat as Ryan Reynolds abs.
As your loyal servant and scribe, I spent the better part of a month riding the 2015 Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider to try learn about that #cruiserlife. The review is on the way, so here’s your chance to get your questions in.
As I’ve said before, I love machinery that has a singular purpose. Too many devices try to do too much, and fall short. Spreading yourself too thin creates a weak product. That’s how you wind up with the Transformers movies. They try to appeal to absolutely everyone, and in turn, become disposable and forgettable.…
Generally speaking, most of the cars I get a chance to drive are relatively stock. Oh, sure, there’s the occasional BMW track car to spice things up, but most are showroom fresh. But every once in a while, someone tosses me the keys to something a little more interesting. That is why I was up before dawn on a…
SPECTRE is the 24th James Bond movie, with Daniel Craig back as Bond and Sam Mendes, (in)famous for 2012’s Skyfall, back to direct what is ultimately the best possible result for a follow up film to the Daniel Craig era of James Bond. The trailers were wrong. This movie is so much fun.
“Holy Shit!” Those are the first words said—or, more typically, shouted—by everyone who’s thrown a leg over the 2016 Specialized Turbo S. This thing is fast. But it’s not the speed that takes you by surprise, it’s how well electric power is integrated into the human cycling experience.
I built a motorcycle, I bought a van and then I left...I left my job, my friends, my fiancée, my dogs and every other thing that brought me comfort.
A lot of vehicles get much more hate than they deserve. I’m not talking about the PT Cruisers and Corvairs of the world, although I have opinions regarding them as well. No, today I’m talking about the 996 generation of the Porsche 911. Porsche, as a company, tends to not change its ways without dutiful consideration.…
Chris Harris is a man most notable for his video reviews of cars. He recently bought into the experience of motorcycle ownership, subsequently promising to never begin reviewing the machines. Well, here is Chris Harris in video on the new Ducati Scrambler - a motorcycle.
The first time I saw CarPlay in action, I couldn’t believe it. You could plug your iPhone into the infotainment system and then get iOS on your dashboard?! It seemed like Apple finally found a way to turn an automobile into a rolling computer like Knight Rider.
My first reaction upon experiencing a full throttle pull from the passenger seat was to mutter, “fucking hell…”, and then burst out laughing.
