Reviewed: LG Nitro HD, Serious Sam 3, Botanicula, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL)

• David Pierce at The Verge reviewed the LG Nitro HD. The lowdown? Don't bother, because better stuff is on the way.

• At Ars Technica, Ben Kuchera loves Serious Sam 3, a "hardcore, difficult, and lovely" FPS. It's available for Windows. At the other end of the gaming spectrum, John Walker reviews cute, curious explore-em-up Botanicula at Rock, Paper, Shotgun: "a stunning game, even in its incomplete form…"

• Marco Arment checks out some of the latest e-Readers, and likes the basic Kindle most of all.

• Joanna Stern, also at The Verge, likes Toshiba's ultrabook, but not an awful lot.

• Bonus review! The Awl's Choire Sicha reviews Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Honeywell).
