Steelseries Aerox 9 Wireless and Aerox 5 gaming mice review

Steelseries offered two interesting mice for review, the Aerox 9 Wireless, aimed at MMO/MOBA players, and the Aerox 5, a wired mouse for multi-genre use. Both have a rather interesting lightweight lattice design quite unlike anything I’ve seen before. Continue reading Steelseries Aerox 9 Wireless and Aerox 5 gaming mice review

Xbox Series S review

A year and a bit later and I’ve got my hands on an Xbox Series S.

As an owner of an Xbox Series X since (just before) launch, I’ve been a bit guilty of turning my nose up at the junior version of Microsoft’s next-gen consoles. Silly really, as I still love my Xbox One X, which the Series S trumps with ease. Continue reading Xbox Series S review

32GB PNY XLR8 Gaming MAKO 6000MHz DDR5 memory kit review

PNY’s XLR8 Gaming MAKO DDR5 memory modules are designed to get the most out of systems based on Intel’s 12th generation Alder Lake CPUs. We take a look at the 32GB (2x16GB) CL38 6000Mhz kit.

When the DDR5-capable Intel 12th generation CPUs were launched late last year users were faced with a dearth of DDR5 modules. Anticipating this, enterprising motherboard manufacturers produced DDR4-compatible boards allowing system builders and upgraders to use the cheaper, and easier-to-find, memory. Whilst DDR5 is not quite as scarce as it once was, it is still very expensive, at least twice the cost of DDR4. Continue reading 32GB PNY XLR8 Gaming MAKO 6000MHz DDR5 memory kit review

Ghostwire Tokyo PS5 review

Although a bit of  tonal departure for Bethesda, Ghostwire Toyko is a good-looking and eerie action game that is aimed at a very select audience. Continue reading Ghostwire Tokyo PS5 review

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands PC review

Gearbox, the Borderlands crew adapt the series’ signature look to the game within a game that is 2K Games’ Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.

The Borderlands games are over-the-top first-person shooting/driving games set in a weird sci-fi universe where players hunt for elusive vaults full of treasure. A tongue-in-cheek plot and ridiculously overpowered weapons have made the games very popular. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a spin-off that joins Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Borderlands 3, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Continue reading Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands PC review

Grid Legends PC Review

Is Codemasters’ latest entry in its Grid road-racing series ready for another lap or is it time to pit in? We find out.

Fresh off PlayStation’s Gran Turismo 7, racing in Grid Legends seems like a doddle. The two games are pretty much opposite ends of the spectrum. Gran Turismo 7’s uncompromising car physics and handling are a world away from the “simcade” racing style of the Grid games. GT’s careful cornering is replaced by exciting, if over-the-top, epic powerslides and drifts. Continue reading Grid Legends PC Review
