Demon’s Souls; If at first, you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.

Until this year, I had never played Demon’s Souls. I know that many in the gaming community view this as some kind of cardinal sin but there it is. I’m not ashamed to admit it anymore.

Well, it's been a journey hasn't it. Before Christmas, I looked on in disbelief as Gardaí stepped up their efforts to crack down on the use of electric scooters.

Last November, something weird happened. Bebo started trending on Twitter. There was no real reason for it. I assumed it was just a bit of luv for some nostalgia while being locked up at home.

What’s Happening With GameStop Stock On Wall Street?

One of my favourite movies of all time is The Big Short. It's all about how the financial sectors greed crashed markets in 2007 leading to a global recession. Good times.

The Netflix Effect: How What We Watch Shapes Who We Are

To state the obvious, 2020 was a rotten year. It was a year where nothing could be taken for granted and very few things were guaranteed.

sage bambino plus review
It's been a terrible year. I'm not going to dance around that. But when we look at the legacy of this pandemic, global acceptance of remote working or working from home will be one of the few positives we remember.

Melomania Touch Review: The Best Earbuds For Sleeping

During the middle of lockdown, where we had to behave but were allowed travel the country and go shopping, I went to Kildare Village. Working at home had left me short on sweatpants so I popped into Under Armour to pick up some bits and pieces. The guy behind the counter was horrified to hear I was buying fitness...

Dublin Smartphone Film Festival 2021
Do you remember the really early days of lockdown where we weren't sure how much new entertainment we'd have for a while? Like, do you remember when Fair City stopped filming?
