Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a Smart Evolution of Pokémon GO

No one was prepared for the popularity of Pokémon GO when it launched in the summer of 2016. Least of all mobile developer Niantic Inc. Explosive would be an understatement. The augmented reality mobile game was uniquely poised to combine a well-known, beloved brand with meta-social real world gameplay.

TaoTronics TT-DL16 LED Lamp Review

It has a hefty price tag, but the TT-DL16’s modern glass panel design, superior range of color options, features, and arm motion make it an impressive choice for premium LED desk lamps.

Jaws Board Game Review

Building upon the success of last year’s Jurassic Park Danger board game, Ravensburger returns with another movie license in the Jaws board game (available exclusively at Target). Released in 1975, Jaws is often considered the original summer blockbuster, as a trio of men on the vacation destination of Amity Island try to keep a man-eating shark from, well, man-eating, first by trying to close the beaches, then by getting on a boat and hunting the shark themselves.

LG K30 Phone Review

The LG K30 is a jack of all trades but master of none, capable of streaming clear video and superior audio, but struggling with more advanced gaming apps and held back by a poor camera. High-end smartphone features are becoming more affordable, but the newest flagship models will still set you back hundreds, or even a thousand dollars.

Slay the Spire Review

Available On: PC (Windows, Mac, Linux) , PlayStation 4, Switch. Card battlers are fashionably popular right now (see our review on the excellent SteamWorld Quest), and Slay the Spire checks just about every box for popular indie genres. Deck-building. Dungeon Crawling. Random Encounters. Roguelike.

Little Friends: Dogs & Cats Review

With the arrival of touch screen technology in the early 2000s, the ability to pet our furry friends wasn’t far behind. Nintendogs was a big success on the Nintendo DS, eventually spawning a sequel on Nintendo 3DS. The Switch’s touchscreen controls and Joy-Con seem like an obvious pick for a new version, but thus far the series lies dormant.

SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Review

The SanDisk iXpand doesn’t have the fastest transfer speeds, but it’s still incredibly useful to be able to plug in a flash drive to save photos, play videos, backup, and transfer files from your iOS device to your PC. Plus, copying and transferring files is super easy. Dozens if not hundreds of devices are available that let you expand your storage capabilities for personal computers.

Invasion of the Cow Snatchers Review

Thinkfun’s new magnetic cow-grabbing puzzle game Invasion of the Cow Snatchers adapts a common puzzle design into a modular, interactive 3D board, thanks to a little magnet-magic. A deck of 60 puzzle challenges with five difficulty levels ensures a hefty amount of replayability. The components and gameplay are simple enough for kids to enjoy, and engaging enough for teens and adults.
