  • Moto Racer 4 PlayStation 4 review
    on Dec 4, 2016 in Game Reviews Gaming Featured
    Compared to the Ride or MotoGP games, Moto Racer 4 is a pretty easy-going arcade motorcycle game. It wants you to have a good time rather than conquer the steep learning curve usually favoured by two-wheeled racers. Depending on your personal prefere...

  • Hands-on review: Crucial MX300 750GB Limited Edition SSD
    on Aug 1, 2016 in Technology Featured
    Crucial’s new MX300 750GB solid state drive finally gives hardcore PC users the fast hard drive space they’ve been asking for. A measly 120GB or even 250GB SSD is of little use for the PC power user. OK, so you can put the operating system on it,...

  • The VR revolution: part one- the future today
    on Jul 10, 2016 in Gaming General Technology Featured
    Virtual Reality- I can’t even say it without thinking about some early-1990s spandex-suit wearing cheesy vision of the future. But finally, it seems, after loads of false starts, VR is here. I’ve been wanting to writing about virtual reality for...
