Borderlands 3 Preview

Borderlands 3 is one of the big titles on show at E3 2019 and we're pretty impressed with the action in our hands-on.
Should I Buy The Borderlands 3?
We might not be seasoned Borderlands players at Tech Advisor towers but this certainly seems like bigger and better mayhem from 2K Games.
We can't wait to get properly stuck into all the new weapons, worlds and customisation.

FIFA 19 Release Date, Price, Platforms, New Features

No sooner has a FIFA game landed that we are thinking about the next one. What could be better? Who will be on the cover? Will we finally get full Serie A teams?

FIFA 18 was a decent update, but FIFA 17 was the most recent clear evolution of the series with the introduction of the Frostbite game engine and The Journey single player mode.

If 19 is to be an incremental upgrade, then what else can EA bring to the table? Will offsides be called earlier? Can we please foul the keeper? And will the commentary ever be approaching lifelike?

In June, FIFA teased the new game with last year’s cover star Cristiano Ronaldo in a Real Madrid shirt – then he went to Juventus and EA has had to hastily redesign its entire campaign.

When is FIFA 19 out?
FIFA 19 will be released on 28 September 2018. If you pre-order the Champions Edition you can get access three days earlier on 25 September.

How much will FIFA 19 cost?
FIFA 19 will cost from £45.99 in the UK on its release. Pre-order it from Amazon here.

The Champions Edition costs from £69.99. Pre-order it from Amazon here.

EA is rethinking its cover now, as the entire game was announced while Ronaldo was at Real Madrid with him on the front. His move to Juventus has rather ruined EA's promo campaign.

What platforms will FIFA 19 be on?

The obvious - PS4, Xbox One and PC.  

We are surprised to see FIFA 19 will be available as a scaled down legacy edition on PS3 and Xbox 360.

FIFA 19 is also coming to Nintendo Switch, like the surprisingly good FIFA 18. But like that port, It’ll probably not include The Journey and full-on Frostbite graphics due to the limitations of the Switch’s hardware.
What to expect from FIFA 19
FIFA games sometimes struggle to add new features year to year, but we’re hopeful FIFA 19 will be enough to warrant the purchase (but you’re going to buy it anyway, aren’t you?).

Champions League
EA has nabbed the rights to use the Champions League and Europa League branding from Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer. This is a major blow for Konami but a huge plus for FIFA 19 if true.

You could only play in the 'Champions Cup' on FIFA 18, and the absence of the iconic music and trophy likeness takes away from the FIFA magic. It looks like it’ll be coming this September though, making FIFA an even better choice than the ailing PES series.

PES had UEFA rights for the last 10 years.

The Journey
We fully expect Alex Hunter to return in The Journey for FIFA 19, and hence the single player mode’s third year. While slow at times (those cut scenes) the mode was a breath of fresh air for the sometimes-stagnant series.

Interacting with players like Ronaldo and Harry Kane on and off the pitch and even deciding how you should come across on social media is a tad clunky, but the coming off the bench and scoring winners in finals scenarios are exciting enough to keep us playing.

Serie A and Coppa Italia
Maybe less important for some, but anyone who watched Football Italia back in the day will rejoice – FIFA 19 will reportedly have full right to names, teams, likenesses and stadiums for the Italian first division.

It always makes FIFA more fun when you have the latest kits, names and player ratings – this is what makes it a football nerd’s dream, and adding Serie A in its entirety only adds to the fun.

Gameplay changes
Maybe it’s because we suck at them, but it’d be great if EA could get penalties and free kicks right. Sure, we can improve outfield play by sticking to it, but set plays are pretty difficult.

We’d also appreciate more off ball control where possible and be able to turn off the option for visual control toggles so we don’t keep accidentally turning it on when indulging in some more heating control-stick gameplay.

And if there’s some way to properly punish those who quit online games when they’re losing, that’d be much appreciate. Show some sportsmanship, people!

Nokia 4.2 Review

At £150, Nokia's budget handset has to be compared to the very best cheap phones. How does it stack up?
Should I Buy The Nokia 4.2?
The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.

You’ll need to weigh up how much you need an incredibly powerful Mac laptop with concerns about the keyboard, but the new 9th generation 8-core processors should sweeten the deal.
