Drakensang: The Dark Eye – PC

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

Review by Johnus Maximus Hold onto your helm of disintegration, there’s a new role-playing game in town and this one doesn’t require a monthly subscription! German developer Radon Labs have made a bold attempt to convert the paper based RPG Das Schwarze Auge (The Dark Eye) into a huge single player computer game experience. Released […]

OtterBox Defender Case For iPhone 3G Review

Monday, August 24th, 2009

I’ve always had a soft spot for the strangely alluring looks of rugged gadgets. From the Garmin Oregon, to the Sonim XP3, the thought of a device that doesn’t die the minute it encounters the most trivial of harsh conditions is somewhat comforting. The OtterBox Defender brings some of this ruddigity to the iPhone 3G, […]

Sacred 2 – PC/Xbox 360/PS3

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Review by Johnus Maximus Banished to a world they constructed without their master’s consent, the Seraphim must try to unite the many warring factions of Ancaria. Betrayed by very races they created, civil wars are consuming the world and the abuse of magical energy is threatening its destruction. This is the setting for Sacred 2: […]

Samsung P400B “Pocket” LED Projector Review

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

Let’s get this out in the open right off the bat, if you think the P400 “Pocket” Projector will actually fit in the average pocket, you’ve been misled by the peculiar title. This particular “Pocket” projector is incredibly small, but it’s not that small! I’ve decided to bring projector reviews to Gadgetoid, and this review […]

V-Tech V.Smile V.Motion Unboxing And Brief Review

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Just in case you haven’t noticed, I like to very randomly run off on Gadgetoid tangents, taking my coverage in directions I had not previously considered to test the waters and simply follow my whims and review what I, personally, want to look at. As our daughter grows up and starts hijacking my laptop, with […]

Netbook Gaming On The Samsung NC10

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

My Samsung NC10 has been neglected for a few weeks, I bought it to use as a dedicated linux computer for programming and tinkering with open source consoles. However recently I’ve had a bit of an old-school gaming itch and have been grabbing fistfulls of CDs from my loft to see what I can get […]

PURE Reach F10 Remote For Your Evoke Flow

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Whilst idly digging around the menus on your Evoke Flow, you might have noticed a remote pairing option. This is because PURE have backed up the Evoke Flow with the ultimate accessory for the couch potato, an optional IR remote. First, it’s clear why the remote is optional. The PURE Evoke Flow (although not the […]

Buffalo LinkStation Live First Impressions

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

I managed to snag a Buffalo LinkStation Live in time for some weekend tinkering. I fully expected a weekend of geekery, but the LinkStation Live makes it’s somewhat advanced features such as Time Machine Support and a built-in BitTorrent client simple, and thus slightly boring. Of course, most of you probably aren’t looking for excitement […]

HEYYU Video Menu Box

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

It’s stunning to think that such an obvious product isn’t already placed in every restaurant, bar or cafe in existence, replacing often hideously out of date printed menus stuffed in tatty, weathered boxes. But O’WONDER only today announced their HEYYU Video Menu Box to the UK independent restaurant and cafe trade.

Linux-based PSX Emulator On The Pandora

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Craig has finally uploaded another video to YouTube. This time it shows off a Pandora PSX emulator in action, with the CPU clocked to 550mhz. The slight stuttering in sound should, with any luck, be ironed out with further optimizations. If all else fails, over-clocking should give us Pandora fanatics full speed PSX emulation in […]
