James Gale Managing Editor It’s amazing how much SEGA have crammed into the latest release of Football Manager. There’s just so much to do. A truly great game for footie fans. Martin Smith Group Senior Designer Amadine is a fantastic art package, and now it’s available for the iPhone and iPad. It’s amazing how much they’ve crammed in here. Alan Hulme Staff Writer My trusty notebook satchel was getting very tatty, so I was delighted to review the Zoom Crossbody Laptop Bag. It’s attractive, comfortable and sturdy.

aoc cq32g2se gaming monitor

It’s amazing how far display prices have fallen, while their quality continues to rise. Take this one, for example. It’s a specialist, quad hi-definition (QHD) gaming monitor with a giant 31.5-inch screen. It runs at 165Hz, has a 1ms response time and a 300 nits rating, yet it costs well south of 400 notes.
