Even when it was released in 2006, Nintendo's Wii games were already looking a little past it, stuck as they were in the muddy depths of standard-definition resolution and on relatively old hardware. In 2017, they're way past it.

Not to worry. If you'd rather play your Wii games in stunning HD - and trust us, they look stunning - then all you need to do is follow these simple steps.

Resident Evil 4 went through a lot of changes between the time it was first shown off in 2001 to the time it was released in 2004. The finished product is a classic, but we're now getting a chance to play through an earlier, cancelled edition of the game, which has been rebuilt by a fan.

Last year I returned to visit my old Neopian stomping grounds. In the 15 years since I'd left, the bustling Neoboards had devolved into ghost towns. Faerieland had crashed to the ground. I could accessorise my JubJub with faeces. The times, they had a-changed.

Apple's new MacBook Pro is the first significant upgrade to the creative professional's go-to laptop in years. It adds the first touchscreen that any Mac has had, updates to new(er) Intel processors and AMD graphics, and makes a swathe of behind-the-scenes usability changes. It's the sum total of those small changes, though — not the new processing power or the not-exactly-amazing battery life — that make the new MacBook Pro a worthwhile purchase if you're considering one.

For years since news of its cancellation, rumours have circulated about the supposedly "Awakening-sized" Dragon Age II expansion, Exalted March. The most widely held belief was that it had been cancelled due to Dragon Age II's poor reception, but as it turns out that assumption is false. Mike Laidlaw laid all (or at least, some) secrets bare for curious fans in a series of tweets earlier today.
