It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the last proper Tekken game on home consoles – Tekken Tag Tournament 2 released in 2012 on the PlayStation 3, while the now-discontinued Tekken Revolution launched in 2013.

Fitbit Alta HR review: The best fitness tracker for most people

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The best activity tracker is the one you’ll actually wear every day, otherwise there’s no point in buying one at all. Fitbit’s new $150 Alta HR is the one most people would wear not just every day, but all night—and that’s worth every penny. At a glance, the Alta HR looks identical to its predecessor, last year’s original Alta. It’s a slim bracelet with an OLED screen that wakes to show the time when you raise your wrist and responds to…

Senate Delays Vote on Education Secretary Nominee Betsy DeVos For Financial Disclosure Review

The confirmation hearing for Donald Trump’s billionaire Education Secretary pick, Betsy DeVos, on Tuesday was frankly outrageous, the most eye-catching item being DeVos’s assertion that states should be more open to allowing guns into schools for protecting students against grizzly bear attacks. Now the vote on whether or not to confirm DeVos has been delayed, though not because of bears. On Friday, Republican Senator and chair of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Lamar Alexander, pushed back the date of Devos’s confirmation vote by a week to…

Final Fantasy XV Review

Final Fantasy XV begins with a screen proclaiming it to be a “Final Fantasy for Fans and First-Timers”. As the number suggests, this is the series’ fifteenth mainline game, and each numbered entry is its own standalone tale. With so many games over the years, you’d assume it has a wide enough audience similar to Call of Duty or FIFA. This was the case once upon a time — during the era of the original PlayStation, and PS2 — before the series stumbled into the high definition generation of consoles with some…

Kitchen gadgets review: Food Sniffer – ‘It smells fishy to me’

What? The Food Sniffer (£105, myfoodsniffer.com): organic chemical sensors housed in a plastic baton. Detects molecular decomposition in meat and fish. Why? What the nose knows isn’t good enough. Well? Oh, what’s that old joke? “My dog’s got no nose.” “How does he smell other dogs’ anuses?” “He obviously can’t, you insensitive arsehole.” (I may have misremembered the details.) It’s not just tragic, hypothetical dogs that will benefit from this device, a portable electronic nose that does your sniffing for you. Pointed at a piece of meat, it sends a…

Farming Simulator 17 Review – Entertainment Drought (PS4) Read more at http://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2016/10/27/farming-simulator-17-review-entertainment-drought-ps4/#j8MobVwo4WWKmmQl.99

Farming is in my blood. Both my grandfather and great grandfather were farmers for their entire adult lives. This means that far too many of my summer days were spent in the middle of a corn field, instead of in front of a gaming console. I only mention this to explain my shameless attraction to farming simulations. Dating back as far as SimFarm on PC (and pretty much any other avenue since), the notion of managing a digital plantation has fascinated me. So when it came time to review the…
