Deliberately divisive.

D4 is batshit crazy. There’s really nootherway to describe the latest game from Hidetaka ‘Swery’ Suehiro. It’s everythingwe expected from the creative force behind cult classic Deadly Premonition – and that’s a compliment and criticism in equalmeasure. While D4 is absolutely one of the weirdest and unique games you’ll play on your Xbox One this year, you’ll have to ask yourself: howmuch amI willing to put up with? For every second that’s wildly irreverent, zany and insane, you’ll find just asmany clumsy design choices.

This is a bizarre murder mystery, one that isn’t necessarily suited for those that fell in love with Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us. It casts David Young, a private investigator driven by the mysterious murder of hiswife andher final words “Look for D.” It’s a tragedy that granted Young the ability to leap through time using mementos as a bridge to the past. Can he findher killer, alter time and save her?

Apple Pay: the complete review

apple pay

Apple Pay makes payments quick and convenient.

Why it reall y does transform mobile payments

We're so used to hearing that the latest Apple product or service launch "transforms" its category, and we aren't necessarily referring to the language used in the Cupertino firm's own press releases - the wider media are more than good enough themselves at that particular hyperbole. It would be easy to think that Apple's latest innovation - Apple Pay - surely can't live up to the hype of doing the same for mobile payments. However, if you did, you'd be wrong.

Sure, a lot of bold claims have been made for a solution that is supposed to make mobile payments easier and quicker than ever. Apple itself has described the service as "a new category of service that will transform mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay", while the Wall Street Journal has said that it "changes the way we look at our phones, not to mention wallets full of credit cards and bits of paper."
