SteelSeries Siberia 350 Video Review

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

I took a look at the SteelSeries Siberia 350 headphones some 7 months ago. It seems almost unbelievable that so much time has passed since then, and I’m genuinely a little surprised. I was previously avoiding drawing too much attention to the video because my skin was in a terrible state at the time I […]

Syndrome: Scary Space Survival on Steam

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

From space babes to scary space survival, to chairs quaking with fear. Syndrome is another hat tossed into the “horrifying stuff happens in space” bucket. And not altogether a bad one at that. I may not be quite the gamer I once was. But when I’m not making things, photographing things or trying to make […]

5 Retro Gaming Gifts For The Computer Nerd

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

I’ve compiled a short list of retro gaming gadgety goodness for that special basement dweller in your family. Hey, that’s not an offensive term; I only wish I had a basement to dwell in! This year we’re spoiled for choice. I suppose we usually are. But this year is special. The hobby electronics market has […]

Alienware Alpha – The PC-based Games Console

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

If you read my gush about PC gaming you’ll know I find it an exciting landscape with so much more to offer than the locked-down and tightly controlled world of console games. So why, you might ask, would I give a monkeys about a PC trying to masquerade as a games console? Easy. I counter. […]

A look at PC gaming – inspired by the Alienware Alpha

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

For the benefit of console gamers, I feel I should pre-empt my Alienware Alpha review with an introspective on PC gaming itself, and just why it’s not necessarily a better experience than console gaming, but a richer, fuller and more varied experience to complement console games and challenge the more involved and advanced gamer. The […]

Alien Isolation: Terrifyingly Brilliant

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Occasionally I pick up and play a game that’s simply so engrossing, and so perfect that I can’t help but to pop up and use my crusty, neglected blog to shout about it. If the title of this post didn’t tip you off, it’s Alien Isolation that’s got me this time. Alien Isolation is the […]

Toybox Turbos PC Review

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

Are you, like me, old enough to recall a little Micro Machines tie-in gem on the SNES? It was, in my humble opinion, every bit as great a racer as Mario Kart but with a whole different outlook on the genre. The endearing, top-down graphics portrayed the tiny toy cars racing over snooker tables, sliding […]

RollerCoaster Tycoon World Teaser Trailer

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Hardly exclusive or news to many of you, but I thought I’d include a little nod to RollerCoaster Tycoon World simply because of Atari’s lofty and bold promise of providing a game with absolutely no micro-transactions or pay-to-win nonsense. RollerCoaster Tycoon World promises to be the PC-exclusive, pay-once extravaganza that fans have been waiting for. […]

KidzPLAY PS3 Wireless Gamepad

Monday, November 25th, 2013

It’s not curtains for the PS3 yet. With its strong lineup of titles and refined form-factor it’s still as viable a console choice as any other- and the many die-hard console fans turning to the PS4 will see it become even more reasonably priced over the next year as its popularity begins to wind down. […]
