Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin PC review

Capcom’s much-loved Monster Hunter series gets another spin-off title with Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.

My only exposure to the Monster Hunter franchise was the recently released Monster Hunter World. I was not even aware of the first Monster Hunter Stories game released in 2017 exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, like its predecessor, swaps out action combat for more traditional Japanese RPG-style battles. Continue reading Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin PC review

TerraMaster D5-300 Raid Direct Attached Storage review

Terra Master’s D5-300 offers users a USB RAID storage system for up to five drives. I take a look.

RAID, Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks, is a data storage virtualisation technology that has been around for decades. Whilst the term was first coined in the 1980s, some aspects of the technology originated in the 1970s. Continue reading TerraMaster D5-300 Raid Direct Attached Storage review

Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition PC/Xbox Series X review

It’s with a sense of déjà vu that I venture into the graphically refined post-apocalyptic world of Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition.

This augmented version of the celebrated game affords players the opportunity to experience Metro Exodus looking better than ever. The developer, 4A Games, has swapped out pre-baked lighting and, on PC, the hastily added ray-tracing implementation of the original release, for a more complete, and realistic look. Continue reading Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition PC/Xbox Series X review

Toshiba Canvio Gaming Portable Storage review

Dynabook’s Toshiba Canvio Gaming Portable Storage hard drive may offer a solution to a problem that new console owners didn’t know they had.

Whenever I start talking about data storage the first thing I always say is that you can never have enough. It’s not me just repeating myself, it’s because it is the absolute truth. Continue reading Toshiba Canvio Gaming Portable Storage review

Chivalry 2 Xbox One/Series X review

Call of Duty meets the Middle-Ages in the medieval multiplayer hack and slash Chivalry 2.

Chivalry 2 sounds like the sequel to a turn-based medieval strategy game. Possibly why I gave the first game, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare a wide birth back in 2012. It was only when I heard Chivalry 2 described as medieval Call of Duty that my interest was properly piqued. After checking the game out, the COD comparison is probably the best description you could give it. Continue reading Chivalry 2 Xbox One/Series X review

Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game PS4 review

Better late than never, I check out Sega’s Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game.

Originally released in Japan only in 2019 on PS4 and Switch, Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game was a victim of COVID-19 just like its namesake. It’s still probably the safest way to partake in the Tokyo Olympic games, which start later this month. Continue reading Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game PS4 review

Hot Wheels Unleashed PC preview

I spent some time with a preview build of Milestone’s upcoming racer, Hot Wheels Unleashed.

It was with some trepidation that I started up Hot Wheels Unleashed, a racing game based on Mattel’s famous line of toy cars. The Playground Games’ Hot Wheels Expansion for the Australian-based Forza Horizon 3 is a favourite of mine. Continue reading Hot Wheels Unleashed PC preview
