PlayStation Classic Review - Is It Worth It?

It finally came, I got my PlayStation Classic!

If you like gaming then you’ll know that Sony were releasing a mini PlayStation in the run up to Christmas, and as soon as I heard, I had to order one. I loved my original PlayStation as did many others, and so it was obvious that I’d buy this.

It costs £89.99, but how does it play, and is it worth it? Here’s my full review.

Football Manager 2019 Review - The Best Yet. By Michael 84

Yes guys, it’s that time of year again. It’s the time of new football game releases. A few weeks ago it was FIFA 19, and now it’s time for the big one, Football Manager 2019 was released this past Friday, and naturally I got it…The boxed disc version obviously!

It’s a yearly tradition, and an exciting time of the year for people like me who’ve been playing FM for years, previously Championship Manager and stretches all the way back to the glory days of the Amiga.

So what is it like, should you upgrade, what’s changed, what’s good and what is bad. Well…

The New Motorola P30 Looks Like An iPhone X

Monday, 20th August, 2018

iPhone X vs Motorola P30

Is it a bird, is it a plane, is it an iPhone X? No, it’s none of those, it’s the latest smartphone from Motorola, the Motorola P30, which looks like an iPhone.

If you like the iPhone devices but can’t afford them, or you just prefer Android, Motorola has came up with a novel solution, their new P30. It looks incredibly similar to the iPhone X, which features an edge to edge screen, almost bezel-less, dual camera set up on the back, and that infamous notch design to the top of the screen.

I Bought Far Cry 5 – Here’s What I Think

Far Cry 5 Review

I do like playing computer games, but for the most part they’re football based. So that’s either FIFA or Football Manager, with one being action and the other being strategy. I am not a hardcore gamer, I’d call myself a casual gamer. I was in the mood to get a new First Person Shooter game for either PC or XBOX One, so decided to go the XBOX One route. There was 2 on my list of possibilities, Call Of Duty or Far Cry 5. I chose Far Cry 5.

I’ve never played any Far Cry game, so didn’t know what to expect, and only played a couple of Call Of Duty games. I read a little bit online and watched a few YouTube videos, and as far as I can tell, Far Cry 5 is more of an open world whereas COD is more structured with missions.

Huawei P20 Pro: A Good Looking Mobile Phone With Three Cameras

Wednesday, 18th April, 2018

Huawei P20 Pro - Serious competition for the iPhone X and Samsung S9

There’s a new phone on the block which is putting iPhone, Samsung and the rest to shame when it comes to the cameras on their phones; The brand new P20 Pro from Huawei.

Huawei has been making inroads into the smart phone market over the past couple of years. The Chinese company has made a couple of pretty good phones in the past year on paper at least, but the latest offerings, the P20 and P20 Pro could be considered serious contenders for those looking to make a bold switch, especially if you like taking photos. It’s the party piece of the P20 Pro, it has not one, not two but three cameras on the back, as well as the front side camera too.

I Got A New Monitor! An LG Infinity IPS Display

LG Infinity Monitor

I got a new monitor! So the story goes like this…

I have needed a new monitor for around a year. You’ve probably seen my set up, and I run 2 monitors side by side which I’ve done for years, and now can’t live without. Last year one of my monitors kind of broke; It still worked but it took a lifetime to ‘warm up’, actually around 15 minutes, and it was pretty unusable until it did. But since it wasn’t completely broken, I just painfully lived with it for the past year, knowing I wanted to get a new one, but not knowing which one I wanted.

Apple Mac Or Windows PC? Which Is Best? [Bloggers Guide]

Which is better - Windows or Mac for Bloggers

It’s a question and debate which has raged on for years, and it will probably continue to do so until the end of time. Everyone has their opinion, most have a preference, so I will be talking about which is best? Apple Mac or PC. It’s a general computing question, but it’s also one bloggers often talk about, there’s always rumblings in the blogosphere about which is better, with everyone giving their less than experienced opinion.
