Halo 3 Post Launch Comedown

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Words and pictures by Johnus Maximus “Believe” The tagline attached to the advertising campaign of the most eagerly awaited game of the year/decade/millenia (delete as appropriate). And the sheer amount of hype behind this game was going to be a lot to live up to. So does it? YES – believe it!!! Many a fine […]

The Time Has Come, The Walrus Said, To Buy Some Halo 3

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

It’s crunch time, ground zero and various other phrases indicating that now is the time to act. It’s mere minutes before I set out to the local Game and Gamestation to grab a couple of copies for myself and the missus, who has to stay behind and hold fort (read: look after the baby) and […]

Discovery Channel Last One Standing Halo Exclusive Video

Monday, September 24th, 2007

Ricoh Caplio R6

Monday, September 24th, 2007

The Ricoh Caplio R6 is, in my humble opinion, one of the best looking low-end cameras on the market. Available in Black, Red and Silver with the former two very tastefully combining their primary colour with silver accented styling it’s almost certain to impress. Of course looks aren’t everything; the Caplio R6, successor to the […]

Warriors Orochi – Xbox 360

Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

Review by Johnus Maximus Excitedly, I bought this game yesterday, and aside from a few hours sleep, I have been playing it solidly for about 17 hours. After prising my hands away from the 360 controller, I felt it was time to express my joy and sorrow using words. I’ve been a fan of the […]

Friday, September 21st, 2007

Firmware hacked PSP. Check. A wealth of homebrew software, games and emulators. Check. A stash of backed up games so you can leave those delicate UMDs at home. Check. A couple of ripped DVD movies for in-flight entertainment. Check. And a few dozen albums for good measure. Check. Somewhere to put it all? D’oh! There […]

Gaming Headsets; the good, the bad and the ugly

Friday, September 21st, 2007

The humble headset is, perhaps, one of the most important tools in a gamers armada. Without sound we are deprived one of our key senses and have no way of detecting enemies or communicating outside of our field of vision. I have looked at a diverse array of headsets from the simple, compact, laptop-friendly SteelSound […]
