Totally Rated features reviews and opinions of what’s hot and what’s not in the tech and gaming world.

Bringing together leading titles from across the industry, we hear first hand from those who have reviewed – and rated – the very latest games and products on the market.

In this week’s episode, Fortnite Season 6 landed, Microsoft made a new gaming headset and have Lenovo created a worthy challenger to the Surface Pro 7?

In the world of gaming, Fortnite Season Six is here, and has brought some big changes as GamesRadar’s Iain Wilson explains; “The most obvious change this season is the Spire – a massive tower at the center that currently contains the Foundation, who’s sealed himself inside the Zero Point to save the island.

“In keeping with the Primal theme, there are now various animals roaming the island that can either be hunted or used to your advantage. These include wolves, warthogs, chickens, and frogs, and if you eliminate them they’ll drop crafting items such as animal bones, along with meat that you can consume to regain health.”

Staying with gaming, the Xbox Wireless Headset from Microsoft entered the fight for the best Xbox Series X headset.

Adam Vjestica of TechRadar said: “Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless Headset is an exceptional gaming headset that’s brimming with features and clever design decisions.

“It offers phenomenal audio performance for the price, and it can be completely customized to suit your listening preference. If you’re after a pair of wireless headphones to go with your new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, the Xbox Wireless Headset should be top of your list.”

And Brendan Phillips of GamesRadar was also very impressed with Microsoft’s offering, calling it ‘an absolute bargain’; “The new Microsoft Xbox Wireless Headset is one of the best gaming headsets on Xbox Series X and Series S right now.

“It has all the features you’d want from a high-end gaming headset at a price that makes headsets that are only slightly better but twice as much as a harder sell.

“The build quality is excellent, but it’s quite a small headset. But on the whole, you won’t find a more rounded gaming headset on Xbox Series X for such a low price.”

In the world of Tech, the Surface Pro 7 has stiff competition from Lenovo.

With the ThinkPad X12 Detachable, Lenovo takes the Surface Pro concept and improves it with all the goodies associated with the “ThinkPad” brand, as Phillip Tracy from Laptop explains: “Lenovo had a very clear vision with the ThinkPad X12 Detachable: make a better version of the Surface Pro 7+ for business users who need ultimate portability.

“The X12 achieves this goal by delivering excellent battery life in a lightweight chassis without sacrificing (much) performance.

“The 12.3-inch display is adequately bright and vivid, and the detachable keyboard (which comes bundled with a stylus in the US) is comfortable to type on.

“It’s almost the complete package if not for a missing USB Type-A port (found on the Surface Pro 7+) and the lackluster speakers.”

Tom’s Hardware have also been testing out the Lenovo X12 Detachable and also believe it’s a great choice, as Michelle Ehrhardt said: “Even compared to attached machines like the latest XPS 13 2-in-1 and HP Spectre x360 convertibles, the X12 Detachable held its own on performance and exceeded those options on battery life.

“And since it’s also priced competitively with the i5 configurations of those machines, which one you get is largely a matter of form factor preference.
“There’s a few minor quibbles here and there – the touchpad isn’t great, and the machine likes to emit a mild whirr from time-to-time.

“But if you can put up with those rough edges and want a detachable that punches above the rest without costing too much more, the ThinkPad X12 Detachable is a great choice.”

New episodes of Totally Rated will roll out every Thursday.
