April 2, 2019

Naked Strangers are less than a year old but after a listen to their first single, “Honey Roast”, they will feel like a familiar favorite. Not because they’re a copy of other bands and sounds, not in the slightest; but because the track is warm, penetrating and richly mature, yet refreshing for such a new band. […]

April 2, 2019

It’s been a rocky road for the DC Extended Universe. From the dizzying delights of Wonder Woman to the hyper-colour mess of Suicide Squad. From the delicious ridiculousness of Aquaman to the dark and sloppy disaster of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And it’s hard to forget what should have been their crowning glory […]

Space Junkies Review: A solid VR arena shooter

I was sceptical going into Space Junkies. VR, I’ve found, can be hit-and-miss, and nearly every title I’ve played has led to dizzy spells and nausea. Not only that, but this was a title set in the cold vacuum of space with rockets, guns and jetpacks. If anything was going to cause me problems, it […]

The newly improved Razer Kraken builds on perfection

I loved my first Razer Kraken headset. With its chunky earpads and lurid green colour scheme, it was the perfect thing to draw heads on buses — as if I’d only walked in to say ‘look at me, look at me!’ With its newest iteration, Razer improves on perfection, but you’ll have to look hard […]
