Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered PC review

Conversion kings Nixxies take Insomniac’s web-swinging PlayStation 5 game, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, and polish it up for PC.

Sony has been rather generous of late in a massive turnaround to its past stance towards PC gaming. We’ve had God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Days Gone all arrive on PC, sporting the PlayStation logo intro, and exclusive new features. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered now joins that prestigious list. Continue reading Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered PC review

Campfire Audio X Astell & Kern Pathfinder earphones review

The Pathfinder earphones, or IEMs (in-ear monitors), are a collaboration between premium earphone manufacturer Campfire Audio and the high-fidelity digital audio system gurus at Astell & Kern.

When I first read up on the Pathfinder earphones, I felt incredibly under-qualified to review what are, quite possibly, the most prestigious audio devices that I’ve been asked to review. One thing stood out and that was the price tag, a breathtaking US$1,899 from the US Astell & Kern site. Continue reading Campfire Audio X Astell & Kern Pathfinder earphones review

F1 22 PC/VR game review

For the second Formula One game under EA Sports’ stewardship, Codemasters drop the 20 to simply give us F1 22. But it’s not just the name format that’s changed.

EA Sports iterative sport games are a licence to print money. Each year, dedicated fans splash out cash for the new games that usually feature a slight graphical scrub up, refined physics, new teams, liveries, strips, uniforms, players, drivers, tracks, stadiums and rules. To the casual observer, each iteration looks eyebrow raisingly about the same as the last. Of course, that’s not the case otherwise fans wouldn’t buy them and EA Sports titles wouldn’t be the best-sellers that they are each year. Continue reading F1 22 PC/VR game review

Prey movie review

Disney’s 20th Century Studios takes a stab at expanding the Predator franchise with Prey, helmed by 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Dan Trachtenberg.

This fifth film in the franchise that was kicked off by the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle, Predator, serves as a prequel of sorts. Set in 1717, the film follows a Native American woman, Naru, and her tribe’s encounter with a Predator. Continue reading Prey movie review

TCL 30 SE mobile phone review

TCL continues to provide consumers with budget phones that still pack a punch with the TCL 30 SE mobile phone.

The TCL 30 SE is a big beastie. It’s still, just about, pocket friendly at 165.2mm x 75.5 x 8.9mm. Weighing in at 190g the phone feels solid despite its plastic chassis. There’s nothing about the phone’s look and feel that suggests that it is a budget device. To be honest, I was quite surprised at just how cheap the phone retails (which is around NZ$370/AU$270).
