Do you want to experience being on the of the Enterprise? Do you have some form of VR device?
Then you’re in luck because you too can do James T Kirk impersonations in front of three strangers while saying things like “Full Power to Engines, Aye!” without a trace of irony.
This is the kind of thing that’s the killer app for VR.

I’ve recently moved house and have a bit less space for my work / play desk (a huge, deep table-top). Additionally, I’ve been doing a lot more typing on it (loads of PowerShell in my current job!) and I’ve been finding it more uncomfortable sitting at it typing for long periods.
Last, I’ve recently gotten a large, wide-screen monitor and it’s footprint was eating up a large amount of the desk-space I had.
So, after a bit of reading and hunting around, I got myself an Obutto Revolution. Continue reading “Obutto Revolution Desk / Cockpit Review + Construction Tips”
I backed the Kickstarter for the Fidget Cube when I saw it and they finally arrived!
It’s pretty much what it says on the tin; a cube for fiddling with. Each side has a range of surfaces, buttons and widgets all of which give lots of satisfying feedback.
They’re pretty cool! Continue reading “Socially Acceptable, Hi-Tech Fidgeting: The Fidget Cube”
The original Planescape: Torment is one of my 3 favourite games of all time. The actual order of the three varies a bit depending on which cool bits I remember and how I’m feeling at the time but Torment is probably on the top-spot the most.
I kickstarted Tides of Numenera immediately; a spiritual successor to my (mostly) favourite game of all time ? Yes please!
It’s taken a while, but it’s here. Yay! And I’ve played it! Double-yay! And now, I’ve finished it. Boo.
Here’s some thoughts about it… Continue reading “Torment: Tides of Numenara Spoiler-Free Review”
Our family got tickets for Christmas and we we’re looking forward to seeing it (though the kids we’re a bit unsure about what it was; “Is an Opera a musical? What’s the difference?”. A good question that :D)
I was expecting to go an appreciate the music and singer’s talent, but it was actually tonnes of fun. Continue reading “Pirates of Penzance in London”
Giants: Citizen Kabuto was a favourite at our LAN parties for a long time. It’s an interesting game; predominantly a single-player game it had a rudimentary multiplayer tacked-on, seemingly as an afterthought.
That meant multiplayer was a massive sand-box to play in with very little thought to balance.
Hence, it was totally awesome. Continue reading “LAN Yarns: How To Lose Friends And Ingest People”
I grabbed this spontaneously the other day both due to the sale on Amazon and me not having played a good single-player FPS for ages. Multi-player Titanfall (1) was supposed to be great so I was a little tempted by the multi-player too but what I really wanted was a cool campaign to run through.
Titanfall 2 delivers, in spades. Continue reading “TitanFall 2 Review (Spoiler-Free)”
I’ve been playing Shadow Warrior 2 for a week now and it’s pretty good fun, though quite different to the original. Bit more detail below 🙂 Continue reading “Shadow Warrior 2 Review (No Spoilers)”
Stellaris is a new space 4X game released on May 9th. I’ve been playing it over the past week and it’s pretty cool! Some comments after the line.

I got a Vive. A real, working Virtual Reality system. That makes it officially The Future (hover-boards / flying cars / utopian government notwithstanding).
I’ve been using it for a bit over a week and here are my my thoughts.
