MXGP 20 – On your bike!

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...

Access Google Classroom On Xbox and PlayStation

Right, back to it. Tomorrow a new kind of class reopens. A virtual classroom. Many schools will be teaching students remotely. This means lots of parents are probably looking online for the right software for their kids to join class. Google Classroom is one of the most popular but what do you do if the only laptop in the...

Twitter Permanently Suspends Donald Trump

Trump is blocking celebs on Twitter
I've been thinking about a few things lately. Mad things like, "imagine someone travelled from the past to today and saw some of our headlines". Actually, it's a bit like some of the Back to the Future movies if I'm honest. You could argue that some of the real headlines are too unrealistic for Hollywood. Another lands today as...

Revolut Targets Building Consumer Confidence With New Plus Plan

Revolut Plus Card
I don’t hide that I’m a fan of Revolut. The online-only bank has taken aim at poor experiences offered by "traditional" banks and built their whole experience around simply being better. Now, Revolut is launching some revamped premium plans including the new Revolut Plus and personally, I think it’s great news for retailers, specifically online retailers and consumers. Online Shopping...

Return To Sender: DHL Suspends All UK Landbridge Deliveries To Ireland

DHL suspends Irish deliveries
Lads. What the hell. I've described the end of 2020 as being like that series you're watching building up to a season finale cliffhanger. But, when will the crescendo peak? Obviously, "new strain of COVID-19" and "Ireland closing border to the UK" are top of the list in terms of dramatics, but DHL suspending deliveries surely is right up...

Tech Clear Out: What To Do With Old Phones And Gadgets

what to do with old tech
It’s that time of year again. The time when many of us wake up on a cold December morning to the sight of the latest iPhone under the tree. Or maybe a new telly for your man-cave from the Mrs.? Some of us may even be lucky enough to get an Xbox Series or PlayStation 5 if our loved...

Brexit Impact On Amazon.co.uk And Virtual UK Addresses

Brexit is about to get very real for online shoppers. Despite COVID-19 pushing many people online, recent data from Revolut showed that Irish shoppers still spent most of their money with non-Irish websites. Just 43% of Black Friday shopping was with Irish websites while average spends abroad were significantly greater too. There's a good chance that a fair chunk...

Cyberpunk 2077 Removed From PlayStation Store: Sony Offering Refunds

This is turning into a truly remarkable story at this stage. I genuinely feel for the developers to be honest. Sony has released a statement this morning not only confirming customers could get refunds if they bought Cyberpunk 2077 but they've removed it from the PlayStation Store. What's Going On With Cyberpunk 2077? I'm glad I didn't get caught up in...

Cyberpunk 2077 Developers Offering Refunds To All

cyberpunk graphics leading to refunds
Wow. Just wow. On a few levels, wow. CD Projekt Red, the developers of the either famous or infamous Cyberpunk 2077 game has started offering refunds for all game purchases. Cyberpunk 2077: Failure To Launch This follows my own experience with getting a refund after buying a digital copy on Xbox. It was terribly buggy and, if I'm honest, other un-patchable...

Cyberpunk 2077 Review: Can You Refund A Xbox Digital Purchase?

cyberpunk 2077 review
Yep. That's the title of the review and also the ultimate conclusion of my Cyberpunk 2077 review too. I've had my Xbox One since... well I'm not sure, to be honest. It's been a long long time though I do think it's time I made the jump to the PlayStation 5. Anyway, my point is that in all those...
