Eden Games’ Nintendo Switch game gets a release on the PlayStation 5 as Gear.Club Unlimited 2 – Ultimate Edition.

Industry veterans, Eden Games have been developing racing games going all the way back to the 1990s with their V-Rally games. Their 2011 open-world racer, Test Drive Unlimited 2 was a lot of fun. In recent years the developer has concentrated on mobile racing games including bringing the Gear.Club franchise to the Nintendo Switch.

EPOS H3 Pro Hybrid gaming headset review

EPOS goes from strength-to-strength unleashing, with its top-of-the-range EPOS H3 Pro Hybrid, what could just be the ultimate gaming headset.

At first glance, the H3 Pro Hybrid looks identical to Epos’s H3 Hybrid headset. They are so similar that I had to hold them both side-by-side to detect any difference. They both feature multiple connection methods and are both closed acoustic headsets- cutting out noise via sealed-in ear cups. The only discernible difference is a switch for the H3 Pro Hybrid’s ANC (active noise cancellation) mode. But we’ll come back to that. Continue reading EPOS H3 Pro Hybrid gaming headset review

The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf Xbox One / Xbox Series X review

Microids and OSome Studio invite players to do some Smurfing and Smurf-up the evil Gargamel’s latest fiendish plan in The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf.

Like many 70s/80s kids I was introduced to The Smurfs via the Hanna-Barbera cartoon, ignorant of the fact that the little blue people had been around since the 1950s. Had my parents chosen to drive just a little further for their fuel in the 1970s, I’d have probably had a collection of the little Smurf figures given away at National petrol stations like many of my school friends. Instead, I got to know the Adventures of Papa Smurf, Smurfette, and their little village via the original Saturday morning cartoon.
