Urban Trial Freestyle PSVita review

Tate Interactive’s Urban Trial Freestyle is a side scrolling motorbike stunt racer. You play as a bare chested, monosyllabic, grunting, hairy hillbilly biker. He’s pretty fearless.

Sony Xperia Z hands-on first impressions review

I was lucky enough to get hands on with a pre-production Sony Xperia Z last night – so here’s my initial thoughts and first impressions of the device in a pre-release Xperia Z review.
