AverTV Capture HD H727 Review

It's been a while since I bought a VGA cable so that I could play my Wii on a PC monitor. But now that I've bought myself a PS3, that cable wasn't going to work so I decided to go for an HD capture card - AverTV CaptureHD H727. This is about double the price of a dedicated converter and it also means you'll need to keep the PC turned on when playing...


Last Ranker Review

Right, British slang joke aside... In the story of Last Ranker written by Kazushige Nojima (FFVII, FFVIII, FFX, Kingdom Hearts etc.), Zig is tired of following the seemingly pointless traditions in his home town of Gantala. Seeing no future in staying there, he decides to leave and enrol in the city's "Rankers", an organisation...


Cowon iAudio 9 Review

Decided to pick up a new DAP because my old Meizu Mini Player's down to less than an hour's worth of battery life left per charge and, I really didn't want to use my mobile phone as a music player now that I know more about sound quality. This time I decided to go for the Cowon iAudio 9 since I've read Cowon's players produce the best sound...


Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty Review

Been a long time since I played a decent RTS and I'm glad Blizzard's brought one back. I never really got into the story for the original game but, this first part of the trilogy Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty takes place 4 years after the events of the Brood Wars the first expansion pack. Jim Raynor is out to start a revolution to release...


Bus Signs ::

"No Smoking", "No Food or Drink" notices on public transport is pretty common but it seems they've added a new one to the collection here in Scotland... "Turn Your Music Down". I guess they must be getting a lot of complaints about people turning up their music too loud and people do. I guess they must be getting a lot of complaints about...

The Small Lives of Summer ::

Been out wandering with my camera again but didn't get any ideas for any shots I could work with. I did catch sight of this common butterfly again though which I had taken a photo of some time ago at Pollok Park. Thought I could try to get a better shot of it this time with my DSLR. I was told it might be a Monarch Butterfly (the ones from Trauma...


Xenoblade Review

In the world of Xenoblade, there were two gods - one of machine and one of flesh once locked in an seemingly endless battle. After their battle came to an end, lifeforms appeared on each of these dormant gods and a brand new war began between living creatures and machine. When Shulk's home Colony-9 is attacked, killing many of the...
