The Epic Game Store's battle against the PC gaming monopoly of Steam continues. For many months, the vocal opposition has made it very clear that they are unhappy with Epic's strategy of buying timed exclusivity deals with games, thus beating Steam to the punch of some of the most highly-anticipated releases. However, despite the apparent dislike of the moves and he boycott claims, it is starting to bear fruit for the upstart launcher. With the recent reports making the Epic Games Store look even more appealing to PC game developers, the competition may be starting to wear on Valve's titanic platform.
The upcoming handheld game system has two FPGAs that can be programmed to work like the actual hardware of original game systems — which means that games run without any software emulation. In fact, you can insert a Game Boy, Game Boy Color, or Game Boy Advance game cartridge in order to play classic games on the Pocket. Analogue says more than 2,780 games are supported out of the box. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Since the system supports adapters, you should be able to buy an add-on that will let you play games designed for other handheld systems like the Neo Geo Pocket Color, Atari Lynx, or Sega Game Gear.
Huawei is having a bad time. You wouldn't know it by looking at the Mate 30 Pro, a gleaming piece of kit that exudes luxury and cutting-edge tech. But then you unlock the phone and reality comes crashing in: there's no Gmail on this thing, or YouTube, or Google Maps. Worse, there's nothing Huawei can do to help. You're supposed to find your own alternatives, hunt down APKs on third-party app stores, or resort to web apps.
The Note 10 Plus's bezels are smaller than nearly any phone Samsung has ever produced. Instead of putting the camera cutout in the top right corner though, Samsung has moved the camera cutout to the top center. I like this design because it doesn't feel like it gets in the way of your content. I was already happy with the Infinity-O display in the S10 series, but this cutout is even smaller. This does come at the expense of a smaller camera aperture compared to the Note 9 ?— another indication that Samsung was obsessive about making this device beautiful. Front-facing camera shots still look great though, so this is a fine trade-off for me.
