Daemon X Machina Review: Pew pew pew, rinse & repeat.

Its been about two years since Daemon X Machina was announced at Nintendo’s E3 Direct and its finally launched on the Switch. From the trailers it looked like an amazing mech game with lots of potential. But reviews out thus far have been mixed, according to their headlines. I tried to avoid them before embarking on the journey myself, with slight failure.

So, game in hand, let’s see if it does well.

#LateToTheParty Tech Review: Edifier TWS 1, my first truly wireless earbuds

Ever since Jack left the building (thanks to the launch of the iPhone 7 making it a trend), there was a rise in bluetooth earphones in the market – starting with Apple’s AirPods. I’ve still got my headphone jack on my phone (thankfully) and I’ve not had to suffer through a transition…yet. For the life of me, I can’t comfortably use earphones that are not of the in-ear type. Even headphones are a big problem for me (as mentioned in my Kraken review) and that sucks since I’m rarely found without earphones on. At home, on the plane, in a train – always plugged into music (or a cheeky game).

The kind peoples at Edifier (Malaysia) hooked me up with the TWS 1 and as usual: I’ve got some thoughts.

Spyro Reignited (Switch): Nostalgia on the go

Like most 90s-born gamers, Spyro was one of the first ever video games I’ve ever played in my life and when a remaster was announced I couldn’t wait to get it…Until it was only released for the PS4 and Xbox One (which we’ve reviewed). And then I had no choice but to wait.

Now its finally out and what do I do? Why, I take my Switch out to the park of course!

Tech Review: Redmi Note 7 – the consumer’s phone

Astral Chain Review: Nothing is what it seems

Boy, Nintendo sure have been banging out titles like there’s no tomorrow. Not too long ago we had Fire Emblem and here now we have Astral Chain. This Switch-exclusive kept me from sleeping on a 12-hour flight and some subsequent nights after, I was hooked as soon as I had my hands on this game.

Fire Emblem was a hit, and I predict that this might be too.

#LateToTheParty: So I finally have a Nintendo Switch…

You read that right: I finally have the Nintendo Switch. The hybrid console has been out for about 2 years now and I only now have one… Stop judging me!

I’m currently a bit over 9 weeks in as a fresh Switch-owner and I have many thoughts.

#LateToTheParty Tech Review: Razer Kraken Pro V2 Headphones

The Razer Kraken Pro V2 are my very first pair of headphones (yes, ever) and to be honest, it was a risky purchase for me because I might end up spending a load of money on a thing I may never use. Why? Because typically headphones aren’t very friendly to perpetually glasses-wearing folk like me. At least, not the ones that I normally see.

“Why did you buy a pair of Razer headphones?” I hear you ask.

Well, why don’t we find out?

Exploring Tech: 5 Things You Can Do With the Android Pie

I know I said in my review of the Nokia 3.1 Plus that having to use an Android again freaked me out a bit. But being the curious little tech cat that I am, I couldn’t resist to see what little bits and bobs Google added to their latest version of their smartphone operating system.

Tech Review: Nokia 3.1 Plus is pretty fly for a budget phone

Anyone remember the start-up jingle? That’s most definitely still a thing and as much as Nokia wants to rebrand themselves, I can’t help but feel some nostalgia as I start up the phone. Sorry, Nokia!

The 3.1 Plus is an update to the 3.1 and is a part of Nokia’s “budget” line of smartphones. For a supposedly budget phone, it seems to be able to pack quite a punch with an amazing battery life and the ability to take great photos. Let’s see if it lives up to expectations, shall we?

Reigns: Game of Thrones shows you how heavy the crown is (Review)

Lannisters, Starks, Targaryens… Oh my!

This is a title I completely did not see coming (mostly because I’m not glued to social media). Medieval Tinder-simulator Reigns is back with a bigger kingdom for you to rule: Westeros. That’s right, this time you’re sitting on the Iron Throne itself and swiping it Game of Thrones style. I saw this on the App Store, during its pre-order period, and I’ve never tapped a purchase button so quick for a game in my life.
