Razer Kraken headset review: Release the sounds

I seem to be on a roll with headsets - I now feel naked without some quality aural peripherals at my desk and I love the difference in sound. Headsets make gaming, video viewing and general PC experiences better, but not all headsets are created equal. So, how does the Kraken compare?

Logitech Powershell Review – Yes but why?

I’ll admit I’m a bit addicted to gaming on the iPhone 5, possibly because those bathroom breaks are taking longer than they should..and holy crap is Flick Tennis currently driving me insane. Don’t judge me.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Review

When it comes to smartphones, Samsung is always trying something a bit odd. With that ethos, comes the Samsung Galaxy S5, a communication tool packed with other features that you never knew you needed or wanted. Some of them are baffling, some of them belong in a niche category, but one thing’s for certain: They all work rather well actually.

Crimsonland review – Retro shooting

I fondly remember playing co-op action shooters with my brother as a kid. Of course he'd always blame me when he died, but that's besides the point - Crimsonland reminds me of all those old-school arcade shooters and it's filled with plenty of remastered gore.

Tomodachi Life Review – An Aleutian of life

This cosmic dance of bursting decadence and withheld permissions twists all our arms collectively, but if sweetness can win, and it can - then I'll still be here tomorrow to high-five you yesterday, my friend. Peace.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 review: Barely scratching the surface

I didn't see the point of a tablet until I got one, and now I can't believe I ever lived without one. Samsung has a tablet in its stable of Galaxy products, but are these the 10.1 inches that you've been looking for?

Sniper Elite 3 Review – Aryan vs Predator

Sniper Elite 3 has always been the poster child for gratuitous violence. Blood and gore in gaming isn’t a foreign concept, but the amount of care, thought and detail that the Sniper Elite franchise has poured into creating realistic violence has been staggering to say the least. This approach however, has always been to the detriment of the rest of the game. With Sniper Elite 3 however, we finally have a game that feels complete.

Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies Review

Company of Heroes 2 was generally quite well received on its release around a year ago. Many people wrote off the single player campaign as something which was forgettable. The multiplayer on the other hand, is where the game showed its real potential. Relic have put together The Western Front Armies, a DLC or expansion of sorts which has appeal to both those who own the game and those who don't . You don't need to own Company of Heroes 2 to play it, so for that reason, I have split this review accordingly. Which player are you?

Valiant Hearts Review: A good game for a Great War

Valiant Hearts is the latest indie-esque release from Ubisoft. It uses their UbiArt Framework to bring the horror and devastation of World War I (also known as The Great War) to life. If anything, I think they did their job too well.

Murdered: Soul suspect review – Unchained Malady

There’s nothing like a good murder mystery. Murdered: Soul Suspect is nothing like a good murder mystery. A good one keeps its audience in rapt engagement; with armchair detectives narrowing the list of suspects in their heads right up until the killer’s identity is revealed at the end. For a while, I was caught up in its fiction and its trope-filled depiction of life as a ghost on Salem’s streets – but by the end I found I just didn’t care. I didn’t care about its characters, I didn’t care about the protagonist’s quest for redemption, and I didn’t care who the killer was.

Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook review

The good people of Acer were kind enough to give Darryn and me the Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabooks to use during our recent trip to E3. Everyone who encountered them got that shiny, jealous look in their eyes - these Ultrabooks are fantastic gadgets, but this level of awesome doesn't come cheap. So, let's look at what's on offer.

Call of Duty: Ghosts–Invasion DLC review

The final Call of Duty: Ghosts map pack was recently released and I’ve been giving it a run through recently to see what it is all about. Is it a worthy finale or have Infinity Ward left the worst of the bunch for last?

Microlab H30BT Speaker Review

As the popular saying goes, the audio makes the man. Okay I may be making that up but getting yourself some top quality speakers is at worst a guilty pleasure and for some people an absolute necessity.

WildStar review – Welcome to Nexus, Cupcake!

Reviewing MMORPG's is always a darn tricky affair. They are filled with dozens, if not hundreds of hours of content, many, MANY acres to explore, millions of quests, and of course, a variety of classes to choose from which plays a part in dictating how you experience the game. WildStar is no different, offering up the experience you'd expect, but with its own crazy flavour. I've spent twenty hours in game, spread unevenly across two classes from two opposing factions. I've barely dented what the game has to offer, but I already know that it's something I'd be happy to spend more time with.

Murdered: Soul Suspect Review Round-Up

Geoff dropped a ton of paperwork on my desk, while sporting a facial expression that showed that he was visibly upset over my handling of the Revengeance killings. It seems that another massacre had taken place, with the victim being Murdered: Soul Suspect. Somebody was going to pay for this. And it would most likely be a recommended retail price of R599…
