Review: Empire of Sin – Living the Mobster Life

It took twenty years for Romero Games to release the highly anticipated Empire of Sin, and all we can say is that it was worth the wait. Set against the gin, guns, and glamour of 1920s Chicago, Empire of Sin is the kind of video game that has plenty to offer. Much like Chicago in the 1920s, Empire of Sin is a flawless mix between a tactical shooter and a business simulator. It’s on a genre of its own and it isn’t difficult to see why it has received...

Review: Anker Power Essentials

Ah! The iPhone 12! The latest and greatest iPhone has been released, with mind-blowing features and enhancements that, as usual, set Apple terabytes apart from many other competitors. We’re talking 5G, OLED, the fastest chip in a smartphone – the A14 Bionic, and no charger <insert record scratch sound effect here, follow by awkward silence>. Yup, that’s right. No charger or EarPods whatsoever. Nope. Chances are, when you first unboxed your glorious new iPhone, this disappointing record scratch moment was probably followed by some head scratch confusion. You were...

Review: Nebula Capsule Max – Bigger and Brighter, But With Some Big Tradeoffs

A while back, we took a close look at Anker’s popular Capsule – a highly portable projector in a very small package aiming to transform the pocket projector from a strict business tool into a serious multimedia device – and overall, we were quite pleased. Today, we will be taking a look at a highly updated, brighter, and more powerful model released as a successor — the Nebula Capsule Max! The Max takes the capsule in a slightly different direction with a significantly larger form factor, bigger and louder...

Review: Borderlands 3 – A Lot to Loot and Shoot

Gearbox Software has returned to its most successful franchise by releasing Borderlands 3. This visually stunning, Max Max-like game offers more than just nostalgia. With a thirty-hour campaign, amusing narratives, and a diverse array of weaponry, Borderlands 3 is easy a step above its predecessors. We were first treated to the post-apocalyptic, “loot and shoot” game back in 2009, and since then, Borderlands has become one of the most popular RPG shooters to ever grace our consoles. In September of 2019, Gearbox Software released the fourth installment, Borderlands 3,...

Review: TCL 10 5G UW

Budget phones are a product that can often be hit or miss. Depending on the seller, manufacturers, as well as current innovations in the technological field, you could be getting a nicely-made steal or a cheap disappointment. When it comes to separating the wheat from the chaff, it can be difficult to tell for yourself which phones are winners and which are duds without first purchasing them, especially with newer phones that have not circulated around the market long enough to have reached a general opinion consensus with consumers....

Review: Eve Cam – The Privacy-Conscious Indoor Security Camera

The phrase “security camera” is generally a two-edged sword in the IoT (Internet of Things) world. While the intended purpose of such a product is to secure the surroundings within a camera’s view, quite the opposite can happen in the background. The smallest vulnerability in the camera’s software can be exploited by hackers, compromising the integrity of the video feed being captured, as well as exposing other devices on the network. These concerns prevent many from enjoying the security that such a device can provide. Eve Cam claims to...

Review: Wonder Woman 1984’s Phenomenal Cast Carry A Complicated Story

After a bit of a struggle to find their footing, DC has been having a much better time in the movie playing field as of late. Films like Wonder Woman, Shazam, and Joker have proven that there’s room for superheroes other than Marvel on the big screen, and they don’t all have to act like Batman. The issue then became one of finding identity; since Marvel had such a strong cultural hold on the superhero blockbuster, it was imperative for DC movies to find their own brand of storytelling...

Review: Nokia 225 4G Feature Phone – A Life-Long Hero for Many

Not much more than a decade ago, Nokia simply dominated the mobile phone marketing globally. In 2005 one in every two mobile phones (50%) sold on the planet was a Nokia. By 2013 that was down to three in every hundred (3%). That January day in 2007 when Steve Jobs walked on stage and changed the world was the tipping point. Anyone under the age of 20 will find it almost incomprehensible to think of a time when mobile phones were not powerful, touchscreen extensions of our very being....

Review: Dirt 5 – Arcade-Like Racing That Brings Back Old School Fun

Racing games tend to take themselves seriously these days. With simulators such as Gran Turismo and Project Cars, light is rarely shined on arcade-like racing games like Mario Kart anymore. With Dirt 5 from Codemasters Cheshire, gamers can fully immerse themselves in nostalgic, arcade-style action. Dirt 5 abandons the typical, formal, and realistic simulation and embraces lighthearted gameplay, even starting with a corny joke the moment you press play. Unlike its predecessor, the 2.0, Dirt 5 takes a step back in terms of gameplay. It doesn’t want you to...

Review: Fatman – A Holiday Treat or Lump of Coal?

Is there any gear out there that can take gaming to the next level for people who want to play on their mobile phones and...
