The Witcher 3 on Nintendo Switch may mean I finally play the DLC

By | August 19th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

I’ve put enough hours of my life into The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but its debut on Nintendo Switch may mean I have to pick it up and travel to The Continent again.

After 92 hours of monster hunting, romancing and playing Gwent, I don’t need to return to this game only a few years after finishing it, but there's one key reason why I may buy it again – and that's the DLC.

I've been lucky enough to play around an hour of the game's Nintendo Switch port, and that short burst of The Witcher's world has encouraged me to return and play through both Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.… Read the full article

Mystery Motorola phone leak may be our first look at Moto G8

By | August 13th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Motorola has adopted the notch to allow for more screen on its recent devices like the Moto G7 series and the Motorola One Vision, but a new leak suggests it may have a new tactic to allow for even more screen on future devices.

Based on a new image from Evleaks (a reliable leaker), Motorola is seemingly preparing a notch-less handset that looks to have an almost all-screen front.

There's still a bit of a chin below the screen that allows for the Motorola logo to be there looking out at you, but there's no cut-out or notch to provide room for a selfie camera.… Read the full article
