Hack Laptop Review | A great introduction to code

Our daily lives are becoming more and more inundated with technology, but it’s easy to forget where it all comes from. Coding is a valuable skill that’s often overlooked by educators. When I was coming through school, which wasn’t too long ago, learning anything about programming was a pipe dream. It simply wasn’t an option. If you find yourself in the situation where your child shows interest in coding, but there are no resources available to them, at least there’s a product like the Hack Compu

Turbo Everdrive Review | A must-have for PC Engine and Turbografx-16 owners

Flash carts are treated like some sort of arcane piracy device by the “proper” games media, but it’s time to face facts: electronics don’t last forever. Capacitors eventually burst, solder cracks and contacts wear down or become corroded. Some systems are affected by this more than others. In particular, the NEC PC Engine, known as the Turbografx outside of Japan, stored its games on fragile HuCards (and later on, arguably more fragile CDs) and the consoles, especially the CD units and Duos, wer

Anno 1800 Review | Worlds ahead

Anno 1800 is the latest in Ubisoft’s lauded city-building real-time-strategy series. Anno is known for mixing the two genres into a fast-paced, satisfying dynamic that has you wrestling between the desire to build a perfect city and ensure the happiness of its citizens and the necessity to have a constant stream of resources and money flowing into your coffers. This time the series is tacking the Industrial Revolution while also implementing mechanics that simulate the colonization of the New W

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 2 Review | A great keyboard for a low price

The Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 2 is one of two keyboards that mark the return of the company’s S.T.R.I.K.E. line of keyboards. The S.T.R.I.K.E. 2 is the budget model with the S.T.R.I.K.E. 4 being a more high-end keyboard that competes with industry leaders. As such, the S.T.R.I.K.E. 2 doesn’t match the feature set and build of say a Roccat Vulcan, but for the price range, it compares very favorably to the competition. The S.T.R.I.K.E. 2 shares the same overall design as the more expensive S.T.R.I.K.

Days Gone Review | 28 Months Later

Days Gone is the latest game to take place in a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombie-like creatures. The zombie game is an odd sub-genre that has trouble striking a balance. We’ve had amazing games like Left 4 Dead and the Resident Evil series (some of them at least), while others, like the recent Overkill’s The Walking Dead, were lackluster at best. Days Gone is one of the more ambitious zombie projects we’ve seen in video gaming, but in a genre that feels somewhat fatigued does it set its

Forza Motorsport 7 (Xbox One and PC) Review - Need for $peed

Forza 7 is the latest in Microsoft and Turn 10’s series that encapsulates man’s obsession with speed. From horses to hypersonic rockets, humanity has always craved to go ever faster, but the most popular outlet for that desire these days is the racetrack. The car is the expression of man’s ability to harness nature and chemistry to gain freedom of movement, and vast segments of Western society are built around the construction, maintenance, and adoration of the automobile.

Sniper Elite 4 Review: On the Mark

Sniper Elite 4 isn't a shooter for everyone, nor does it try to be. Instead, the players who will get the most out of Rebellion's latest entry in the Sniper Elite series are those that are willing to wait for the perfect moment to send one bullet flying, the accuracy of which can be the difference between completing or failing a mission. I had the priviledge of playing Sniper Elite 4 for review and can say this entry in the franchise is the most engaging yet.

Final Fantasy XV Review: Final Fantasy of My Fantasies

The Final Fantasy series has one of the finest pedigrees in gaming. However, Square Enix’s iconic franchise has been under intense scrutiny since the divisive Final Fantasy XIII series came out. Not only was Final Fantasy XV under the gun because of unhappiness with previous entries in the series, but it's also very possible that it’s success means there’ll be further blockbuster Final Fantasy entries.
