    This Land is My Land takes a different view of the Wild West than Red Dead Redemption

    With Red Dead Redemption 2 coming later this year, interest in Wild West games is at a heightened level. So it’s interesting to take a look at a game in development that seems broadly similar to RDR 2, but is taking a very different approach to the subject. This Land is My Land — due out in the first half of next year — is an open-world game set in late 19th century frontier, but it’s played from the point of view of a Native American.

    Brexit: Theresa May claims trade deal success in Africa – but critics say it's a 'rollover' of existing EU agreement

    Theresa May has come under fire for claiming to have secured the UK’s first post-Brexit trade deal as it is merely a “rollover” of an existing EU agreement. Critics said the announcement – to replicate a deal with six southern African nations – fell far short of boasts, before the referendum, of a new free trade area much larger than the EU. They also pointed out that it came amid doubts about whether the UK will be able to retain deals the EU has struck recently with Canada and Japan ...
