Game of Thrones Returns With No Time to Spare (Literally)

The Nintendo Switch’s Labo VR Kit Is Cheap VR That Doesn’t Suck

Considered Nintendo’s biggest failure and the butt of endless jokes, the Virtual Boy delivered an embarrassingly limited virtual reality experience when it debuted in 1995. But the console’s quick death didn’t discourage Nintendo from taking risks, and 24 years later its second attempt at virtual reality leverages the Switch hardware to deliver a series of experimental games that let you dabble with an impressively capable VR experience for as little as £35.

Cineworld’s 4DX isn’t for Everyone, But it Can Make a Film More Like a Rollercoaster

These days it seems as though cinemas will do anything to try and get you through the front door and into a seat to watch a film. Most of them are financial incentives, with things like two-for-one ticket offers, unlimited access subscriptions, or making all their tickets as cheap as humanly possible. Presumably the logic is that once you're there you're more likely to spend money on the overpriced snacks and drinks. Cineworld's 4DX takes things in a different direction, though, and I got to check it out while watching DC's latest release, Shazam!. Read More >>

Do Cats Know Their Own Names?

Plenty of cat owners will happily tell you their felines are capable of responding to their own names, but the scientific jury remains ambivalent on the matter. A fascinating new experiment suggests this might actually be true for some cats, and it’s a capacity very much tied to the social environment in which the cat lives. Read More >>

When Will Facebook Do More in Genocide-Torn Myanmar?

It’s been nearly two years since the bloody peak of a social media-fuelled genocide in Southeast Asia, but Facebook is still not doing enough to prevent the ongoing promotion of violence and hate in Myanmar on its social network, according to a member of the United Nations team that found the Silicon Valley company for years failed to stop its platform from being used to incite genocide in the Asian nation.

What’s the Oldest Disease?

Some things never change. Dying terribly from bone cancer, for instance: that’s something humans have been doing from about the beginning of our time. Has it always been like this, or was there some blissful period, in our species’ salad days, in which no one perished from bone cancer? Which sickness has burdened us—or our ancestors, or any lifeform—the longest? To find out, for this Giz Asks we reached out to a number of anthropologists, who provided their takes on the oldest disease. Read More >>

It’s a Cold Day in Hell on The Walking Dead Season Finale

After last week’s excellent “The Calm Before,” you might expect the season nine finale, titled “The Storm,” to bring the storm. It does, in the form of a massive blizzard the likes of which we have never seen on the show, which puts everyone in danger. But compared to last week’s shocker, “The Storm” was a low-key but compelling check-in with the characters before season 10 — and another reminder of just how much the show has improved over this last year.
