Great moments in PC gaming: Burning Rome to the ground in Total War

Great moments in PC gaming are bite-sized celebrations of some of our favorite gaming memories. I've been known to get into it with fellow history nerd Fraser Brown over the issue of Rome. You see, Western academia has often come to the conclusion that Rome was good. So when games like Total War: Attila allow me to bring my barbarian armies screaming out of the mists to burn the grand city to the ground, I always relish the opportunity. We could all have "farseers" in our living rooms today inst

Galaxy S20 or S11? Whatever happens, Samsung should make its names clearer

While we were expecting the Samsung Galaxy S10 successor to be the Galaxy S11 - that's just how numbers work, right - it sounds like it could actually be called the Galaxy S20, with Samsung taking a Huawei-like approach and skipping its flagship teenager years. Instead of following last year's structure of S10e, S10 and S10 Plus, we've heard the company is going to release the S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra. While it's quite likely the new phones will be called the Galaxy S20 series, there's no off

Windows 10 gets a fix for long-running search bugs

Windows 10 has received another update which promises to cure some troublesome bugs with search functionality experienced by those running the November 2019 Update (and May 2019 Update, for that matter). Microsoft has struggled with issues pertaining to search in File Explorer for some time now, and as we observed at the end of 2019, problems remained with the search tool which broke it in several different ways, including making it impossible for some users to right-click on the search bar and

watchOS 7: what we want to see

That could change with watchOS 7, the next update likely coming with the Apple Watch 6. By now, we can safely say that watchOS 7 will be free, given that every Apple operating system update across its device range hasn't cost users to upgrade. And while watchOS 6 wasn't compatible with Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch 2, the company has been readily selling the Apple Watch 3 at a nice discount. So we fully expect watchOS 7 to work with the Apple Watch 3 and newer. watchOS 7: what we want to

WhatsApp’s new dark mode has arrived, but it just isn’t dark enough

After many months of speculation and hints, WhatsApp dark mode has finally arrived for beta testing on Android, and I've been using it full-time since it arrived. It'd be less dazzling if they'd been reworked in a different hue for dark mode – a pleasant shade of blue, perhaps. Yes, it would have been a lot of work, but dark mode has already been so long coming, what's a little longer? WhatsApp's emoji are still a gaudy shade of yellow in dark mode (Image credit: Facebook)All that grumbling asid

How new Star Wars icon Doctor Aphra was created

And I wanted to create a mirror version of the main Star Wars cast, with Darth as surrogate Luke. Aphra is the only non-film/TV Star Wars character to receive a dedicated solo book. Finally, what do you think makes a great Star Wars character? I'm not someone who likes to generalize about fiction, but I often compared the process of writing Star Wars to playing the blues. If you change that compelling heart, you end up with something that doesn't feel like Star Wars.
