Obutto Revolution Desk / Cockpit Review + Construction Tips

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”

Socially Acceptable, Hi-Tech Fidgeting: The Fidget Cube

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”

Torment: Tides of Numenara Spoiler-Free Review

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”

Pirates of Penzance in London

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”

LAN Yarns: How To Lose Friends And Ingest People

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.kabuto-2 Continue reading “LAN Yarns: How To Lose Friends And Ingest People”

TitanFall 2 Review (Spoiler-Free)

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.titanfall-2-11-23-2016-17-30-18-02 Continue reading “TitanFall 2 Review (Spoiler-Free)”
