Semblance is a game full of excellent and satisfying puzzles, marred only by some odd jankiness and a final level that doesn’t focus on the strengths of what had come before. While short, the experience was overall enjoyable, and a fun take on the idea of a world that can be deformed on your way to finishing a puzzle.
Overall, PUSS! is a game that appeals to those looking for a real hardcore challenge in an uncommon genre. The presentation sold me at first, but as I gradually toiled away at the many difficult challenges, my interest eventually waned.
I wanted the Metro: Exodus demo to wow me, to get me pumped to play the full game when it comes out next year. Instead, I walked away feeling confused and unsatisfied. A lot of the bugs and quirks really soured me on the experience, issues that occurred with a high rate of frequency.
I cannot wait to play Dying Light 2! Based on the presentation, it hits all the right notes for a sequel. It expands on the gameplay mechanics of the first game while deepening the fiction and world building by introducing more humans that fall inside that dark, gray space of morality.
A couple of months back I had the opportunity to review the Plantronics RIG 800LX Wireless Headset, which is easily one of the best gaming headsets on the market today. I simply adored it and recommend it to anyone looking for a wireless headset. Now, I’ve had the opportunity to check out the wired (and less expensive) Plantronics RIG 400LX Gaming Headset. Does it follow its bigger brother or is this a departure for Plantronics? Let’s discuss.
If there was ever a time to upgrade to a 4K monitor, it's now. Almost all new monitors introduced are now 4K and the prices have come down precipitously in the last handful of years. But unlike the television market, the monitor market has been slower to adopt High Dynamic Range (HDR), and so choosing a 4K monitor (with or without HDR) can be a tough proposition. Over the last several weeks I’ve been testing out the latest 4K HDR monitor from BenQ, the EL2870U 28”.
The Shuttle SZ270R9 is a top of the line gaming PC and it doesn't hold back giving you all of the optionality one would want for a long-term investment. This is a fully-featured Gaming PC and there's nothing about it that isn't impressive.
If it’s not already obvious, I’m kind of having a blast with Bayonetta. Do I regret not playing this earlier? No, actually. It’s quite refreshing to play the definitive version of a game I didn’t already buy at some point in high school.
