mxgp 2020 review
With each new console generation, we take greater and greater steps towards lifelike graphics and realistic physics in gaming. MXGP 20 exemplifies this expertly with gorgeous visuals, an involved physics system, and  colourful level and course design with wonderful details throughout. This is by far the most in-depth, realistic racing game I have ever played, bar none. However, all this realism...

Huawei Eyewear II Review: Smart Glasses That Look Normal

testing the Huawei sunglasses out in Dublin
Isn't that a boring headline. "Smart glasses that look normal" is perhaps the most underwhelming description of a cool product I've ever written. But it's strangely positive. You may not be aware that a few years back, Google Glasses came on to the market but they bombed because, well they looked awful. Huawei's smart glasses and smart sunglasses take...

Black Desert Online Review: Is It Any Good?

black desert review
If 2020 has allowed me to do one thing, it's been to rediscover my inner gamer. The whole "working from home" thing has given me some extra time to lose myself in virtual worlds, even while my doggo sits and licks my hands while I play through my back catalogue of games. So, on paper, Black Desert Online was...

playstation 5 review
The PlayStation 5 is finally here! Well, kind of. A shortage of stock on launch day has meant that, for a lot of people, the next generation of console gaming is still some time away.

kindle paperwhite
For years, I was adamant that I would never get an e-reader, mostly because of the fact that I love having the physical book way too much. I just didn’t think that it would be the same, and I couldn’t see myself ever actually using it or at least not enough to actually make buying one worth it. But...

Virgin Media Gigabit Broadband Review: Now Available For 1.4 Million Homes

I usually start these articles with a big-eyes trip down memory lane. Plugging my PC into the phone-line and not even knowing that Limewire was illegal. Great times. You can read all about those times from my article back in August when Virgin Media launched the availability of Gigabit broadband to the vast majority of their customer base. I...

OPPO Reno 4 Pro 5G Review: A New Challenger Brand Enters Irish Market

OPPO Reno 4 Pro 5G
Over the years there's no denying smartphones have gotten a little bit boring. Samsung and Apple were sucking the fun out of new phones until Huawei entered the market.
