Waterfield Designs PS Vita Case

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Waterfield Designs have crafted no less than three PS Vita cases; the deceptively simply named PS Vita Case, the svelte Suede Jacket and the pocket packed Gear Pouch Pro. By far my favourite is the humble-sounding PS Vita Case. Don’t be fooled by its unceremonious title, however, this is a premium case that looks good […]

From Snega2USB To Retrode 2: A Comprehensive History

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Playing vintage games, such as those from the steeped-in-nostalgia Master System, Megadrive, NES and SNES days, has always been somewhat of a legal minefield. ROM downloads, as abandoned as those old games may seem, are frowned upon both by the companies who once sold those games, and the enthusiast communities who still enjoy playing them. […]

Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 USB Speakers Reviewed

Friday, October 7th, 2011

The moniker “USB Speakers” might not inspire confidence in a product, but the name B&W should, and for good reason too. They’re no stranger to top notch sound, so when they bring compact speakers aimed at delivering that quality in a 2.0 desktop form factor you can rest assured that they wont under-perform. The Bowers […]

Three Huawei E586 High-Speed Mobile Broadband Router Reviewed

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Ever since I first reviewed the Novatel MiFi 2352 I’ve been evangelising mobile broadband routers to everyone who’ll listen. And for a good reason, too; they’re awesome. Why? Well, rather than buy a 3G version of, for example, an iPad; you can buy a mobile router and share its connection with every WiFi-enabled device you […]

hardwrk SATA Adaptor Kit For MacBook Pro Reviewed

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

With the recent addition of an Air to our Mac family, I found myself in envy of its absolutely superb hard drive performance. It’s hard to put into words how nice it is not to wait for things to start, and it’s harder still to go back to using a sluggish, spinning-platter hard drive for […]

Our man in… Eurogamer Expo 2011

Friday, September 30th, 2011

by John Cranston Back for the fourth year running, the Eurogamer Expo is largely unchallenged as the king of UK gaming conventions. Taking place once again at Earls Court in London, this time over four whole days (September 22 – 25), the event had expanded to now fill the main hall at Earls Court One. […]

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine – Xbox 360 review

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Review by John Cranston “In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war” is the strap-line that describes life in the 41st millennium. Humanity, having expanded across the galaxy, faces destruction not only from within, but also against nightmarish and brutal aliens. In Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, a third person shooter developed […]

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

I’ve had the iControlPad, a Bluetooth game controller for the iPhone, Android phones and other devices, for some time now and have thoroughly enjoyed catching up on my classic gaming favourites. Read on for an exhaustive review of its ins and outs. After waiting years for the Pandora, and continuing to wait with unwavering patience, […]

Tuff-Luv Marrakesh iPad 2 Case

Monday, June 27th, 2011

With its slick, minimalistic and environmentally friendly packaging, that invites you upon a tour of the product itself and permits access to its various functions, and the sheer detail and functionality of this case, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s a prohibitively expensive, hand-made case of European origin. But, in fact, Tuff-Luv manufacture their […]
