According to LG (and Samsung), it&rsquo;s &ldquo;quantum dot&rdquo; technology. LG has announced its first quantum dot-enabled 4K LCD television, which will debut at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas next month. The company promises a wider color palette and enhanced saturation over traditional LCD displays, and this is the official why and how of it:</p> <p>&ldquo;The technology works by harnessing nano crystals that range in size from 2 to 10 nanometers. Each dot emits a different color depending on its size,&rdquo; reads the press release. &ldquo;By adding a film of quantum dots in front of the LCD backlight, picture color reproduction rate and overall brightness are significantly improved.&rdquo;</p> <p>No word yet on critical details like screen size or price, but we should know much more come CES. According to CNET, Samsung also plans to have its own quantum dot sets on display, so it&rsquo;s sure to be among the most tiring buzz-terms of the show.</p> <p>[Sources:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/quantum-dot-technology-to-join-lgs-4k-ultra-hd-tv-lineup-in-2015-300010004.html">PR Newswire</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.cnet.com/news/lg-leaps-quantum-dot-rivals-with-new-tv/">CNET</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/amazon/amazon-adds-4k-content-prime-instant-video-along-rentals-and-purchases/news">Amazon adds 4K content to Prime Instant Video, along with rentals and purchases</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> GTA Online heists revealed (again) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Cooperative heists were promised a long time ago for&nbsp;<em>Grand Theft Auto Online</em>, the multiplayer component of&nbsp;<em>Grand Theft Auto V</em>. However, more than a year has passed, the new-gen console version has launched, and still the online heists are MIA. But thanks to a new trailer and extensive interview with IGN, we know they&rsquo;re still on the horizon, and it sounds like a significant amount of free (and hopefully fantastic) gameplay.</p> <p>According to the interview, the heists will encompass upwards of 20 hours of content spread across five narrative strands, each with several missions. The four-player events might have you working together as a team, or split apart to accomplish different tasks. Check out the trailer above, and get ready for Heists to arrive sometime in early 2015 on all platforms.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/12/16/grand-theft-auto-5-online-heists-finally-revealed">IGN</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/grand-theft-auto-5/grand-theft-auto-v-ps4-and-xbox-one/review">Grand Theft Auto V PS4 and Xbox One review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UDd3pTE8UsQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Apple prevails in iTunes lawsuit </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Over the last couple weeks, we&rsquo;ve heard bits and pieces about Apple&rsquo;s defense of iTunes in a class action lawsuit filed in the United States nine years ago. In fact, even Steve Jobs testified - via recorded testimony video from before his death. But the courtroom proceedings have concluded, and Apple was found not liable in the suit.</p> <p>The complaint arose from issues of incompatibility between iTunes and music released on some other services several years ago, but lawyers representing the group (of some 8 million people who bought particular iPods between 2006-2009) struggled to produce viable plaintiffs after all these years.</p> <p>Ultimately, the jury decided that iTunes 7.0&rsquo;s security upgrades represented a &ldquo;genuine product improvement&rdquo; back in 2006, and no damages were awarded. However, the plaintiff&rsquo;s group plans to file an appeal, so this could well drag on again for some time to come.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/16/7402695/jury-decision-in-iTunes-iPod-DRM-case">The Verge</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-iphone-6/review">iPhone 6 review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="iPod Classic" alt="iPod Classic" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/ipod-classic.png?1418865349" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Latest Assassin’s Creed Unity patch released </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It&rsquo;s a day later than expected, but the latest big patch for&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/assassins-creed-unity/review"><em>Assassin&rsquo;s Creed Unity</em></a>&nbsp;is now live on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and will hit PC later this week.

Droid-Life discovered that if you tell Google to set the temperature via voice commands, it&rsquo;ll try to connect to your Nest - but currently fail.</p> <p>That&rsquo;s because you need to link your thermostat to your Google account and set permissions, and the pages needed to complete that process aren&rsquo;t all online quite yet. But at least part of the process is there, and there will be two options: one for manually setting the temperature, and another that sets the temperature based on your proximity to home (with a Now card to alert you).</p> <p>The feature was promised to debut this autumn, but hopefully we at least see it before the year&rsquo;s up. Nest thermostats are already very helpful devices, but being able to alter the temperature without even getting up off the sofa? Now that&rsquo;s some next-level comfort coming our way.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.droid-life.com/2014/12/12/google-app-now-one-step-from-being-able-to-control-nest">Droid-Life</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/fully-charged-tesla-s-model-x-delayed-another-classic-zelda-being-remade-3ds-and-nest-learning-t">The Nest Learning Thermostat gets even smarter</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> PlayStation Plus is totally worth it </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Push Square performed an analysis of all of the free games given to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/explore/playstation-plus/">PlayStation Plus</a>&nbsp;subscribers during 2014, and it looks like everything tallied up to a value of almost &pound;960 worth of downloads across PlayStation 4, PS3, and Vita. All for &pound;40 yearly. And the Metacritic review average of those freebies is quite strong at 78.</p> <p>In response, Polygon dug into what Microsoft&rsquo;s&nbsp;<a href="http://www.xbox.com/en-gb/live/games-with-gold">Games with Gold</a>&nbsp;promo offered Xbox Live Gold subscribers last year, and that total came out to US$584, or about &pound;372. Bit of a difference, sure, but note that Microsoft has one fewer active Xbox platform, and only began giving away Xbox One titles in June. The Metacritic ranking? Also a sterling 78.</p> <p>Whatever your platform, there&rsquo;s real value to being a subscriber if you regularly take advantage of the free games (and, of course, play them). And that&rsquo;s in addition to other discounts, plus access to online multiplayer on both platforms. But Sony&rsquo;s been doing this kind of loyalty program for longer, and so far, it&rsquo;s still delivering a lot more value in this arena.</p> <p>[Sources:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2014/12/feature_did_playstation_plus_represent_value_for_money_in_2014">Push Square</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.polygon.com/2014/12/13/7388089/xbox-live-games-with-gold-free-games-2014">Polygon</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation-4/review">Long-term test: Sony PS4 review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="PlayStation 4" alt="PlayStation 4" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/playstation4.jpg?1418631501" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> New footage and details on Street Fighter V </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Over the weekend, the Capcom Cup 2014 tournament delivered thrilling showdowns - but also a first glimpse at the recently announced&nbsp;<em>Street Fighter V</em>&nbsp;being played live for a series of matches.

There&rsquo;s young Ethan Forrester, thrust into a position for which he is ill-prepared; his eldest sister Mira, a handmaiden in the service of queen-to-be Margaery Tyrell in King&rsquo;s Landing; and lastly Gared Tuttle, son of a pig farmer and squire to Lord Gregor &ldquo;the Good&rdquo; Forrester, head of the house. Telltale says five characters will be controllable in all, so we&rsquo;re expecting other Forresters (and there are a fair few of them) to play a larger part in future instalments.</p> <p>Telltale&rsquo;s decision to focus on a minor house of Westeros (House Forrester is not mentioned in the show, and barely registers in the books) is a clever one: it means the player can live in the Game of Thrones TV show&rsquo;s world without interfering with or derailing the major timeline or affecting &ldquo;canon&rdquo; events.</p> <p>You do, however, interact with familiar characters from the show. In &quot;Iron From Ice&quot; there are appearances by Cersei and Tyrion Lannister, Margaery Tyrell and Ramsay Snow, all voiced by their TV show actors. The &ldquo;next time&rdquo; sequence at the end hints at other show favourites that will appear in the second episode.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/game-thrones-world-gets-built-minecraft/news">Game of Thrones world gets built in Minecraft</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="675" title="The Codex fills you in on character backgrounds" alt="The Codex fills you in on character backgrounds" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/game-of-thrones-telltale-codex.jpg?1418398068" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> You win or you die </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>We won&rsquo;t delve into the game&rsquo;s story too much, lest we spoil any of it for you, but so far &ndash; and we reckon the first episode took two to three hours to complete &ndash; it&rsquo;s pretty much up to the standard we&rsquo;ve come to expect from Telltale.</p> <p>As the first episode in a six-episode &ldquo;season&rdquo;, Iron From Ice often has the feel of a prologue. There&rsquo;s a lot of scene-setting that needs to be done, and with three characters&rsquo; stories being told, no character gets as much development as, say, Lee in the first episode of <em>The Walking Dead</em>.</p> <p>That said, there&rsquo;s still a nice pacing to proceedings and room for a number of suitably <em>Game of Thrones</em>-esque shocks.

And it&rsquo;s true that there are few game-y elements here: barring a bit of simple quick time event button pressing to avoid gruesome deaths, your reflexes aren&rsquo;t hugely important. The game is mostly dialogue-based and driven by your decisions &ndash; tough decisions that need to be made quickly and have lasting consequences. How far these consequences reach won&rsquo;t be entirely clear until we&rsquo;ve all got more episodes under our belts, but if <em>Game of Thrones</em> is anything like <em>The Walking Dead </em>in this regard, the destination will be pretty much the same no matter the choices you take: what will be different &ndash; and feel like yours alone &ndash; is the journey you take to get there.</p> <p>In terms of puzzle solving and the like, Iron From Ice feels a little undercooked.

<div class="field-item odd"> <p>Now here&rsquo;s a form of wearable tech that at least half the world can potentially agree on. Researchers at the University of Wollongong in Australia have developed what they call the Bionic Bra, which uses smart components to react to changes in movement and provide immediate support for wearers.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s been in development for more than 15 years, but recent advancements in fabrication (including the rise of 3D printing) have finally made the Bionic Bra feasible via &ldquo;actuators and sensing technologies,&rdquo; says the university. However, there&rsquo;s still much work to be done before you can pick one of these off the shelf.</p> <p>&ldquo;Results indicate that our technologies can sense breast motion and provide additional breast support,&rdquo; said team member Dr. Sheridan Gho. &ldquo;The challenge now is to integrate these technologies into a functional, comfortable bra.&rdquo; Godspeed, we say.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://media.uow.edu.au/releases/UOW184372.html">University of Wollongong</a>&nbsp;via&nbsp;<a href="http://www.engadget.com/2014/12/08/bionic-bra/">Engadget</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft-lifts-moods-smart-bra/news">Microsoft lifts moods with smart bra</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 3D print the new lightsaber </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="319" mozallowfullscreen="" src="//player.vimeo.com/video/113298946?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0" webkitallowfullscreen="" width="567"></iframe></p> <p>Surely we could settle all of the debate over the controversial crossguard lightsaber seen in&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/first-star-wars-force-awakens-trailer-will-premiere-friday/news">the&nbsp;<em>Star Wars: The Force Awakens</em>&nbsp;teaser</a>&nbsp;if we only had a physical replica.

And expectedly, it looks pretty darn fabulous.</p> <p>Naughty Dog&rsquo;s next epic quest puts the PS4 hardware to impressive use with stunningly detailed characters and environments, but we&rsquo;re also struck by how the worlds feel more open and useful for devising your own strategies. In fact, there&rsquo;s a particular emphasis here on using climbing in combat and for stealth, which is intriguing. And there&rsquo;s a big narrative hint at the end, so watch the whole 15 minutes.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/12/06/uncharted-4-a-thiefs-end-first-gameplay/">PlayStation.Blog</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/25-most-anticipated-games-2015/feature">The 25 most anticipated games of 2015</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Ow2cL-pp6p8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Amazon getting into takeaway meals </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It increasingly seems like Amazon wants to have its fingers in just about anything, and the company certainly has the money and scale to make it happen.

And that&#39;s because Cory Barlog, creative director at Sony&rsquo;s Santa Monica Studio and director of&nbsp;<em>God of War II</em>, said that the studio is working on a new&nbsp;<em>God of War</em>&nbsp;game.</p> <p>According to IGN, Barlog said it&rsquo;s not a prequel and that more info will come within &ldquo;the next year or two,&rdquo; so it could be some time before first details come along. Last year&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>God of War: Ascension</em>&nbsp;was a solid prequel, but less rapturously-received than the core trilogy. Hopefully a new proper sequel on PS4 can reignite enthusiasm in the franchise.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/12/06/next-god-of-war-officially-confirmed-to-be-in-development">IGN</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation-3/god-war-ascension/review">God of War: Ascension review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="750" title="God of War" alt="God of War" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-god-of-war.jpg?1418081642" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disney figured out CG eyes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The next frontier in nailing the look of digital humans?

The game in question is<em> Bloodborne</em> and it&rsquo;s every bit as intimidating a prospect as either <em>Demon&rsquo;s Souls</em> or <em>Dark Souls</em>. </p> <p>Interestingly enough, it also throws its net wide enough to entice players who were put off by the eye-watering difficulty of its predecessors without sacrificing an iota of challenge. </p> <p>Sound impossible? There&rsquo;s a lot in <em>Bloodborne</em> that <em>Dark Souls</em> fans will find familiar. </p> <p>Players have a heavy and light attack mapped to the right triggers, a dodge roll mapped to the circle button and a quick-heal mapped to the triangle button. There&rsquo;s a list of gestures in the menu system, the map you walk through is littered with notes from the developers and other players &ndash; some helpful, some not &ndash; and you can see the ghosts of other players at certain points and where they met their untimely demises. Oh, and the checkpoint system is eye-wateringly unforgiving. </p> <p>The key to surviving in<em> Bloodborne</em>, as was the case in both<em> Demon&rsquo;s Souls</em> and <em>Dark Souls</em>, is to treat every monster you face with respect. Every last one of them is capable of killing you outright unless you&#39;re careful. It behooves you to also watch your enemies, learn their attack and defense animations and then look for an opening to exploit. Wading into a pack of enemies or assuming that a large lumbering beast can&rsquo;t move with astonishing speed is the easiest way to get killed &ndash; and once you&#39;re dead, all the enemies you&#39;ve managed to destroy become unhelpfully reanimated.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation/25-best-playstation-games-ever/feature">The 25 best PlayStation games ever</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/XfYyJtyLf0o" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="What, you expected frolicking lamps?" alt="Bloodborne hands-on review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bloodborne-playstation-4-02.jpg?1417897556" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> TWO-HANDED ATTACK </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>Bloodborne</em>, though, has a couple of new kinks in its gameplay. You can dual- wield weapons &ndash; ranged and melee &ndash; and some of them have two settings. The wicked looking scythe the protagonist carried in the demo, for example, could be extended with a flick of the L1 button, granting the player extended attacks. </p> <p>You can also hold down the R2 button for a power-up attack, although this should be used sparingly because it leaves you rather defenceless for what can prove to be precious seconds. </p> <p>Combat rewards those who regularly mix things up. Fire a blunderbuss at an oncoming foe and it&rsquo;ll momentarily stagger, for example, leaving it open for a follow-up with melee. It&rsquo;s also possible to switch between weapons swiftly by tapping right and left on the D-Pad; run out of bullets and you can swap out your firearm for a torch with which to light up your enemies. </p> <p>You&#39;re also able to regain lost health if you maintain your attacks; <em>Bloodborne</em> offers you a brief window in which every single successful strike on an enemy refills your health bar. You&#39;ll never fully replenish your health with a successful counter attack, but you&#39;ll keep the reaper at bay and be in a better position to hang on to your all important blood vials (health potions).&nbsp;</p> <p>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/dragon-age-inquisition/review">Dragon Age: Inquisition review</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1600" height="900" title="Out of ammo?

It&rsquo;s set in a nightmarish necropolis called Yharnam, which looks like what would happen if HP Lovecraft had designed Gotham City. Gothic spires point accusingly at the heavens, the sky above is set to permanent night and filled with swirling black clouds and the streetlamps flicker with menace, illuminating the grisly creatures that stalk the cobbles. </p> <p>Yharnam is filled with a choking atmosphere of dread that compliments its loathsome creatures and your vulnerability beautifully. Perhaps &lsquo;beauty&rsquo; sounds like a strange attribute to attach to a game as dark and unforgiving as <em>Bloodborne</em>, but the sheer craftsmanship involved in it is simply swoon-worthy. </p> <p>It&rsquo;s dark, bleak and ever so grim, but Miyazaki-san&rsquo;s latest dungeon crawler is oh so inviting.

She then wanders around an empty mansion calling out for her friends and inexplicably not commenting on a series of balloons with arrows painted on them, which are directing her downstairs.</p> <p>Once she reaches the ground floor, she enters a screening room where the doors slam shut behind her.

Sam wisely decides to leg it. This is all very hair-raising the first time round.

You work your way through eight different characters trapped in a cabin in the mountains hunted by a psychotic antagonist in a clown-mask. Over the time it takes to complete the game, all eight characters can die and all eight can live. Whether or not they survive is down to the choice you make on their behalf. </p> <p>Sounds like gold, right? In reality this isn&rsquo;t the case and that&#39;s mainly down to the game&rsquo;s mechanics, which offer you timed-response interaction with whatever&rsquo;s going on around you. </p> <p>A lot of the time you&#39;re expected to react to immediate threats &ndash; being chased by a psychotic, for example; would you rather run or hide under a bed &ndash; and this lends <em>Until Dawn</em> a rather &lsquo;trial-and-error&rsquo; feeling. It&rsquo;s like playing a rather badly designed platformer with very bloody stakes. </p> <p>The developers would probably posit that the fact you can potentially save all eight characters &ndash; or lose them &ndash; makes this comparison rather facile. Once a character is dead, you can&rsquo;t reload a save &ndash; the story just carries on from that point. That may be true, but it wasn&rsquo;t backed up by the demo at the Sony showcase. After having played it through three times, <em>Stuff </em>can report that the protagonist we controlled came to a sticky end, regardless of how we tried to progress.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation/25-best-playstation-games-ever/feature">The 25 best PlayStation games ever</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1600" height="900" title="Spooky" alt="Until Dawn hands-on review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/until-dawn-playstation-4-02.jpg?1417897472" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The setting of the game and the nature of the player&rsquo;s interaction don&rsquo;t complement each other.

Just 12,300 units are being made, so it&rsquo;ll be super hard to come by.

It adds a grey colour scheme and new icons, along with floating 3D controller button logos, but the absolute best part is the addition of the PSone&rsquo;s startup music once you sign in. Kudos to Sony for this fantastic freebie.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixjcv_ONfaY">YouTube</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation/playstation-20-how-playstation-changed-gaming/feature">PlayStation at 20: How the PlayStation changed gaming</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Ixjcv_ONfaY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Google planning kid-focused services </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Many children already use the Internet in their daily lives, whether at school or the home, but they&rsquo;re using services primarily designed for older users. Google wants to change that, and is actively working on refocused versions of its core services for use by kids 12 and under.</p> <p>Regulations limit how data can be mined from young children, and parental concerns will no doubt flare up at the idea of Google tapping into younger audiences. But executives claim that it&rsquo;s simply an effort to make sure kids can get to what they really want more easily, while still allowing parents some level of supervision. In the USA Today piece, the example is used that a kid searching for trains probably doesn&rsquo;t want real-world schedules, but perhaps access to Thomas the Tank Engine.</p> <p>And search will probably be a big focus, along with Chrome and YouTube, which already attract child users but could certainly be better tailored for younger needs and minds. &ldquo;We want to be thoughtful about what we do&hellip; we want kids to be safe, but ultimately it&#39;s about helping them be more than just pure consumers of tech, but creators, too,&rdquo; says Google&rsquo;s Pavni Diwanji, vice president of engineering.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2014/12/03/google-products-revamped-for-under-13-crowd/19803447/">USA Today</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/christmas-2013/christmas-gift-guide-12-gadget-gifts-tech-kids/feature">Christmas Gift Guide: 14 gadget gifts for tech kids</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="675" title="Google" alt="Google" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/google-logo-lots.jpg?1417678381" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Watch an hour of Halo 5 multiplayer </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Well, it&rsquo;s 59 minutes, but who&rsquo;s really counting? The <em>Halo 5: Guardians</em> multiplayer beta test is slated to begin late this month on Xbox One, but YouTube channel Ready Up Live was given enough early access to record about an hour&rsquo;s worth of pure gameplay.</p> <p><em>Halo 5: Guardians</em> significantly shakes up the popular online combat approach with the introduction of jetpack dodges and ground pound moves, along with a Smart Scope for improved aiming. In other words, it&rsquo;s embracing elements from other shooters while hopefully not losing its own distinctive flavour. Check out our preview below for our early impressions of the beta test to come.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_9T1ILYYJk">YouTube</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/halo-5-guardians/halo-5-guardians-hands/review">Halo 5: Guardians hands-on preview</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/E_9T1ILYYJk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> First Terminator: Genisys trailer out today </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The debut trailer for next summer&rsquo;s <em>Terminator: Genisys</em> is expected to debut today, and as seen <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/evolve/fully-charged-first-jurassic-world-teaser-evolve-s-add-maps-are-free-and-google-s-internet-ba">with <em>Jurassic World</em> last week</a>, we&rsquo;ve got a first glimpse with a teaser <em>teaser</em> this morning.
