KYY 15.6″ Portable Monitor Review

This 15.6 inch KYY Portable Monitor is lightweight, portable, and well equipped with everything you need to plug in and go.

Which was placed within a protective shield and a grey case. The case itself allows you to adjust your viewing angle, it … Read more

Pretending I’m a Superman All Over Again: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Review

The year was 1999 and in a decade full of great movies, music, toys, and video games, we were treated with another such video game of the likes in which we had never seen before. A game that is so important to the culture of the video game industry that it spawned other games that tried so hard to be just like it. That game would be Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, of which at that … Read more

After moving to a new place in early August I had a lot of new pictures and picture frames to hang up and wanted a quick and easy way to keep an entire line of pictures and painting straight on a wall.  This is where I first looked at laser levels you could buy online and ended up choosing the Tavool Self Leveling Laser Level which was a fantastic purchase decision I decided in the … Read more

Roguelike Wind Waker: Windbound Review

As much as I am a huge fan of the Legend of Zelda series, there has always been one game that stood out above the rest, Wind Waker.

It’s Time! EA Sports UFC 4 Review

EA tries each year to make the UFC games a step-up from previous iterations. What I love about the UFC games is the fact that unlike Madden, NHL, or FIFA, the UFC games do not come out year after year. It has been since February of 2018  when the last UFC game, UFC 3, was released and this latest release is a definite improvement over UFC 3.  There are some things that have remained the … Read more

It’s a new year and time yet once again for me to tell you my personal top ten games of 2018. Keep in mind that this list might not include a lot of games that you would think to make this list.

This Generations Video Game Masterpiece has Arrived: Red Dead Redemption 2 Review

  Rockstar Games is known for being a company that refuses to just pump out game after game year after. Something that not too many video game companies tend to do. It seems to me that video games, in general, have lost their art form. Taking the time to make a game is something that appears to be lost nowadays.  However, Rockstar has been one of a few companies that understand that patience is a … Read more

Sades SA-810 Gaming Headset Review and Giveaway

So recently I received the Sades SA-810 headset to review and I tested it out with both the PlayStation 4 and PC and for the price the headset is decent and falls in line with other Sades headsets.  With Sades, they make so many headset models and most of the differences between models are cosmetic and the style around the microphone and ear cups.  So I can’t say this headset was better than other Sades … Read more

Sea of Thieves Review: Pirate Booty or Fools Gold?

  Rarely, (yes I made a Rare pun) do I ever get the chance to review a pirate game and the last great pirate game I can remember playing was Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. I remember playing that game and thinking “someone should do a massive open-world adventure game as a pirate” So, low and behold Rare decided to fulfill my dreams of being a pirate, in their latest game, Sea of Thieves but … Read more

Mercenary Kings: Reloaded Review

  I have always been a fan of old-school side-scrolling shooters of which my favorite is Metal Slug. There is just something about a game that has that Contra feel to it and this is exactly what Mercenary Kings: Reloaded, by Tribute Games, gets exactly right here. The game features you playing as one of four mercenaries sent out on missions in a central hub ala that of Monster Hunter where players can receive new missions, … Read more

My usual reviews for keyboards consist of mechanical keyboard with some loud switches, but today’s review is a little different.  Today’s review is on the Alienware Pro Gaming Mechanical Keyboard AW768 with Kailh brown switches, so they are quiet but they feel so nice.  The keyboard is nice, but a few things bug me and you can be sure we will go over them here. Before I go ahead and ruin it, let’s go over the … Read more
