The gadgets that refuse to die
I have a drawer in my bedroom that's filled with defunct tech. It consists of old PDAs, bricked smartwatches and wearables that no longer work. Like many of you, I've realized that gadgets don't last forever. As Engadget Senior Editor Devindra Hardawar recent…

So far, 'Final Fantasy VII Remake' is not a disaster
This Final Fantasy VII remake could have gone really wrong. There is my weight of expectation (I adored the original ) and the awkward between-console-generation launch timing. Square Enix has also changed the core fight mechanics to (mostly) real-time combat…

‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ is the island escape we all need today
How do you review something like Animal Crossing: New Horizons ? It's not like most games: There's no plot, no leveling up and no bosses. You can never beat Animal Crossing -- and, conversely, you can't lose. Instead, you play a bit every day, shaping your ad…
And so began my frenemy relationship with Nook, someone you always end up owing in Animal Crossing. He means well, but you'll quickly notice you end up doing most of his grunt work. Compared to the real world, though, he's an angel. Nook may charge you an eye… [+2460 chars]

'Doom Eternal' Is a Dizzying Catastrophe
It's immense, messy, and not nearly as good as the original.
Demonic blood, brutality, and speed. When Doom rebooted itself in 2016, resurrecting one of gaming's oldest franchises into the modern era, it built a new, airtight formula for itself. It was a set of ideas that emphasized speed and intimacy in combat, reward… [+4816 chars]
