Review: Vigor – Stealthy Scavenging Marred By Technical Issues

Bohemian Rhapsody?

Bohemia Interactive’s Vigor, originally released on Xbox back in August of last year, finally arrives on Switch in this paid Founder’s Pack edition – with a free to play version due sometime before the end of this year – and what we’ve got here is a pretty decent looter shooter premise with some good ideas thrown into the mix, however, it’s also got a handful of nagging technical issues on Nintendo’s console that hold it back from becoming a properly enjoyable experience in its current form.

In Vigor players are tasked with traversing various maps located in and around a post-apocalyptic slice of Norway where they must seek out an endless supply of resources and equipment in order to build and upgrade their very own base, craft weapons and survive. Matches are set against a timer which sees radiation sweep through the play area once it runs out and it’s up to you to get in, orient yourself with your map, loot as much gear as possible and hightail it out of the nearest exit before either the radiation or another player takes you out.

Oppo Enco M31 wireless earphones review

The Enco M31 are the latest pair of wireless earphones from Oppo. On paper, the Enco M31 seem fully featured, with LDAC, Hi-Res Wireless Audio certification, IPX5 certified water resistance, and Ai-powered noise cancellation for voice calls, all at a relatively affordable price.

The inclusion of LDAC alone should put a smile on a few faces, as support for this codec is largely absent in budget audio gear. And the Enco M31 is well and truly “budget”; I picked up this pair for INR 1999 from Amazon India, which is only about $26. So what’s the catch and how do they perform? Let’s find…

Week 29 in review: Oppo shows 125W charging, OnePlus Nord teasers intensify

As the OnePlus Nord is scheduled for announcement next week, we got a bunch of stories about it last week. OnePlus’ Carl Pei showed off the phone in grey and cyan. He also appeared to be using the new OnePlus Buds, in matching cyan.

The Buds were confirmed to launch alongside the Nord on July 21.

The battery capacities of the iPhone 12 series were revealed by certification docs. It looks like the iPhone 12 models will have slightly smaller battery capacities compared to the current iPhone 11 lineup.

The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will have a 2,227mAh cell, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro will…

Top 10 trending phones of week 29

This week’s 10 most popular phones in our database are exactly the same as those from week 28 and yet not a single one of them is where we left it.

The hype surrounding the Poco M2 Pro launch has died down so the former leader founds itself all the way down in sixth.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro and Samsung Galaxy A51 have now reclaimed the top two spots, while OnePlus is clearly successful in hyping up the Nord as it’s already in third.

The Redmi Note 9 and Redmi 9 duo follows, while the M2 Pro makes it three Xiaomi-made phones in a row.

Samsung’s Galaxy A71 and A21s take seventh and…

Poll: Box Art Brawl #50 – ActRaiser 2

Raise your act.

Welcome back to Box Art Brawl, the weekly contest between box art variants from around the globe to find out which is the best, better than all the rest.

Last week Puzzle Bobble, or Bust-a-Move as it’s known in North America, graced us with its presence. It wasn’t a contest, really – Japan absolutely stormed it with over two thirds of the vote. Europe came in second and the Bub and Bob-less North American cover failed to impress most of you.
