September 11, 2019

I’m not sure why I did this to myself. Glutton for punishment maybe?

Tech Review: HyperX Cloud Stinger Core: Great sound on a budget

July 11, 2018

Games Review: Jurassic World Evolution (Xbox One, 2018): “We’re going to make a fortune with this place.”

June 18, 2018

Jurassic World Evolution is far, far harder than it needs to be. It’s really surprising how difficult the game is at times.
