Epson ET-M1120 mono printer review

Epson’s Ecotank ink delivery system has already turned colour inkjet printing on its head. The days of paying a tidy sum for a new printer only to find that its going to cost you an arm and a leg for ink are over. For a while now, Epson have been rolling out colour inkjet printers complete with a two-year supply of ink.

The ET-M1120 promises to offer the same deal for users that only require black ink. Whilst most of us probably though we were done with an Epson black and white print when we binned our LX80s, back in the day, there’s still a time and a place for mono printing.

Hands-on Review: Crucial BX500 SSD

Top memory wizards, Micron, in a bid to convert the last remaining PC users over to solid-state drive technology have released their Crucial BX500 SSD.

We’ve all been that guy, listening to a work colleague rattling on about just how fast Windows loads in their swanky new SSD-equipped PC. I remember first checking out the eye-watering price of a 128GB SSD- barely enough space to hold a Windows install.

Times have moved on and stuffing your operating system on a super-fast SSD is now the norm. Well, for most of us. Continue reading Hands-on Review: Crucial BX500 SSD

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC/Xbox One review

Ubisoft’s tentpole franchise continues with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, this time taking the action to Ancient Greece.

Prior to starting my Assassin’s Creed Odyssey playthrough, I’d spent a month or so battling through the last knockings of 2017’s year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins. The month before, I cleaned up the now three-year-old Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Hardly seems like the actions of someone that really enjoys the Assassin’s Creed series, does it? Well, the great thing about Assassin’s Creed games, and their biggest problem, is that they are huge. Continue reading Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC/Xbox One review

V-Rally 4 Xbox One review

After a sixteen-year hiatus, Bigben and Kylotonn bring us V-Rally 4, but do the former WRC team have the chops to take on such a revered franchise?

With September being the traditional launch month for Bigben’s World Rally Championship games, the appearance of V-Rally 4, instead, suggest some licencing changes are afoot. Whilst Kylotonn have upped their game over the last couple of years, their TT Isle of Man: Ride to the Edge was one of the best motorcycling games I’ve played in a while, their WRC games are a bit samey.

Without a licence to stifle their creativity, can Kylotonn bring the legendary V-Rally franchise back from the dead? Continue reading V-Rally 4 Xbox One review
