Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle & the Millionaire’s Conspiracy Review: Stranger than fiction

November 25, 2019

The Layton series played a big part in my schooling years. Little ol’ me and my Nintendo DS, absolutely stoked to have this series in hand. If there was any gaming franchise that kept my mind alight, these were it, thanks to all its puzzles. There are now seven games in the Layton series. This […]

This more or less describes Oppo’s R11s, the newest and midrange smartphone handset from a manufacturer who’ve made an art of cloning Apple’s phone for the Chinese market.

Tech Review: Cygnett Wireless Desk Charger and MagMount Qi Wireless Car Charger

January 15, 2018

Being able to wirelessly charge your phone is kind of the dream for most working professionals.

Video Games Review: Batman: The Enemy Within – Ep. 1 (PC, 2017) sets a grim, complex tone for Season 2

August 9, 2017

I am still waiting for my dream Batman game to materialise. This non-existent game would essentially be LA Noire and the Batman IP draped over it, steeped in the World’s Greatest Detective side of the character moreso than the Caped Crusader. I am fully aware that it would probably sell about four copies. Throughout Batman: The Telltale […]

Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Thicker than Water (PS4, 2017) is Telltale at their very best

May 16, 2017

Perhaps I was a little harsh in my review of Above the Law. If Telltale’s Walking Dead games were judged on their level of interaction, then they would probably garner average scores across the board. I still maintain that the last episode served as a major turning point and definitely felt like the culmination of […]

Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Above the Law (PS4, 2017)

April 25, 2017

Above the Law goes to great lengths to answer a litany of questions we’ve all been harbouring since episode 1. In that sense, it displays perfect pacing and timing, drawing out mysteries and cashing in on them at the right time. However, the third episode puts into perspective just how out of control you can […]
