Recommended by Reenen inWhat are the best local co-op PC games?
The physics element of the game slightly bends reality, making way for a more thrilling experience where everything seems to be behaving as though there is less gravity. This means that cars can somewhat fly around if they hit one another or go up ramps.

Recommended by Kevin inWhat are the best Linux distributions for desktops?
Arch's goal of simplicity means there's usually one preferred way to get things done - through organized and well documented configuration files. This focus, combined with the community's recognition that configuration files can be intimidating, has resulted in excellent documentation that's accessible to newcomers, and very instructive about how Linux actually works. The documentation is often so thorough that, when searching for solutions to problems while using other distributions, such as with video card drivers, oftentimes you'll find the most effective solution in the Arch Linux wiki or on the forums.

Recommended by Titus inWhat are the best HTC Vive games?
The lab is a collection of a bunch of very fun mini games. You get to use a bow and arrow to defend your castle against waves of enemies, control a fighter drone in a classic arcade style shoot-em-up, repair a Aperture science robot, explore the secret shop from Dota and more. Although each game is simple, they are all very well executed and make fantastic use of VR mechanics.

Recommended by Azinator21 inWhat are the best Android phones?
Unlike most phones where the fingerprint sensor doubles a home button, the Nexus 6P has the sensor placed about 3/4 the way up the back of the phone, right where users already have their index finger when holding it. It is not a power button - only a fingerprint sensor, and its tucked away in a convenient-out-of-sight place.
