The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad this week - November 10th

Oh thank whoever you like to thank for things, it's the end of the week. We can all curl up for two days and not have to face the horrors of being a grown up or having to put trousers on.

Which is better, the Xbox One X, or the iPhone X? You might be shocked by the answer

You know what, I'm not even going to try and beat around the bush with this one, because let's be honest, that's not what you expect from me. It's time to have the show down to end all show downs, it's time to decide which is the best piece of new kit that came out recently that's got an X in its name. On the one side you've got the iPhone X, the tenth anniversary edition of Apple's world destroying mobile phone. On the other side you've got the Xbox One X, which as far as I can tell is a large, expensive doorstop. Sure, the new Microsoft console might have more X's in its name, but does that really matter? Well that's what we're going to find out, in a little piece of content I like to ca…

Is Dreamworks Universe of Legends suitable for younger mobile gamers?

Have you ever wondered what a team-up between Po from Kung-fu Panda, a dragon from How to Train Your Dragon, and another character from a third Dreamworks property might look like? No? Me neither, but some people probably have, and they're who I'm writing this content for. That's because Dreamworks: Universe of Legends came out last week.
