Netgear launches their first gaming router

I’ve got to hand it to Netgear. Sexing up an essential but rather mundane bit of kit like a router is a bit of an art, and something they did very well at the Sydney launch of their Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 router. Continue reading Netgear launches their first gaming router

Hands on review: Linksys WRT32X

When Linksys asked me to check out their new WRT32X router it would join a long line of routers that I’ve recently tested. I knew would do its job. But, when it comes to a device whose sole job is to get your stuff up and down from the internet, fast, and then quickly distribute it to all your devices, there’s only so much you can usually write about.

Lucky for me, this router has a few tricks up its sleeves. Continue reading Hands on review: Linksys WRT32X

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Xbox One review

Development newcomers, Warhorse, take us back to 15th Century Bohemia with a first-person role-playing game that’s a tale of swords, chivalry, mud and shit, and not necessarily in that order.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance tells the story of a young nobleman, already a dab-hand with a sword as he rides about medieval eastern-Europe saving damsels and fighting evil black knights.

The paragraph above is a lie made up by me, the game isn’t like that at all.

Take your romanticized vision of life in the middle-ages and put it to one side. At the same time forget about any visions of shiny armour, glistening castles and the like. And you can certainly lock away any thoughts about wizards and dragons. Continue reading Kingdom Come: Deliverance Xbox One review

The Pac is back!

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus is out now on Nintendo Switch. It is, without a doubt, the best-looking portable version of the yellow pellet-muncher’s adventures to date. Continue reading The Pac is back!

Xbox One X – month four review

The Xbox One X is in its fourth month out in the wild.  Many games now proudly display the words “Xbox One Enhanced”. But is Microsoft’s top of the line console really performing? Continue reading Xbox One X – month four review

The Inpatient PlayStation VR review

In 2015 Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn provided players with a tense interactive take on the teen horror genre. A snowy mountaintop, an isolated lodge and an abandoned asylum made for an interesting narrative-driven survival-horror game.

Supermassive returned to the franchise with the weird 2016 PSVR rail-shooter Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. Instead immersing us in the world of Until Dawn, Rush of Blood was only really a shooting gallery featuring environments and characters from the main game.

The Inpatient is a proper VR prequel to Until Dawn. Set in Blackwood Pines Sanatorium, players become patient in the “care” of Dr Bragg, some sixty-years before the events in Until Dawn. Continue reading The Inpatient PlayStation VR review

The Talos Principle VR HTC Vive review

With The Talos Principle, Serious Sam developers, Croteam, ditched the mindless (but fun) violence of their previous endeavours. Instead we have a philosophical game that ponders about sentient A.I. and features some neat puzzles.

Despite being a few years old now, fans of The Talos Principle have been crying out for a virtual reality version of the game. Having been teased by Croteam and their Serious Sam VR releases, it was only a matter of time until we where given the opportunity to return to The Talos Principle in VR.
