It’s October! We’re headed into the winter months when it becomes a little more OK to spend your time indoors looking at your TV.  Maybe that’s why we have such a busy month for new games coming up!  Let’s take a closer look at all 14 new releases for October plus a whole new game platform!

The Best Tablets for Back-to-School 2016

back to school 2016 tablets

Last week, our LD Experts covered the best school laptops of 2016. But what if you want a device that’s more practical for schoolwork than a smartphone, but lighter and generally cheaper than a laptop?

Of course, you’ll be interested in tablets. These days, that also includes convertibles or hybrids – with hideable or detachable keyboards. That way, they function as either a laptop or a tablet, as needed.

But which are your best options? As always, that depends on your needs and also your budget. Here are some of the best tablet options for 2016.

The Best Laptops for Back-to-School 2016

London Drugs School Laptops Guide

Returning to class, whether it’s grade school, college, or university, is always part-thrilling-part-daunting. If choosing a new laptop is among your 2016 concerns, our London Drugs Experts can help.

First, consider what you need. Mainly web surfing and word processing? Keep it light and low-priced with good battery life. Running deep data analysis or, you know, video games? Step up in screen size and processing power.

That means there are two broad categories of back-to-school laptops. Let’s call them essential and advanced. Below are four recommendations for each category spread between the most popular laptop brands.

No matter what you do in 2016, London Drugs has a laptop for you. Here are some of the year’s best options.

New games for August: No Man’s Sky, Madden 17, and more!

August is here! This month will see a few more titles than last month as we head into those prime autumn gaming months! We have 8 new games for you this month, including some sequels, some franchise entries, and one of the most anticipated games of the year. Let’s take a look!


No Man’s Sky

It’s finally here. We’re starting off with No Man’s Sky; one of the most anticipated titles of 2016! Take control of a spaceship and explore a completely procedurally generated universe with over 18 quintillion planets (that’s too many zeros to reasonably type out), no two of which will be alike. Each will have it’s own flora and fauna as well as alien races to encounter. Exploration and survival, along with combat and trading, are the four pillars of the game and you must do all of them to succeed.

The universe is so big that the publisher estimates that over 99% of if it will never be seen by the players, and while you are online while you play the chances of meeting another player are reportedly less than 1%, but if you do meet someone you’ll be able to play together.

The main takeaway from all this is that No Man’s Sky is huge and ambitious and potentially a major game changer. It’ll be out on August 9th on PlayStation 4.
