Chamber of Time is slow-paced, looks a bit drab and it can be repetitive and awkward to play. In a way, it’s much like Akko herself. She’s far from perfect but spunky and open-hearted, making her irresistibly disarming. There’s a strong positive vibe going on that rubs on you, and it helps in overcoming the game’s shortcomings.
When Creative Assembly announced Saga series of their Total War games, focusing on specific periods of time while also messing with the formula in unique ways, I was interested enough to spend some time away from my Warhammer Dawi to see what the developers were up to. The result is a game that is not great, but good in enough ways that if you seek a diversion from the wider main titles, Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia can easily fill that need.
Although I haven't played Killing Floor games before, something tells me that the story isn't the most important thing going for them. That might explain the rather goofy setup of Killing Floor: Incursion, playing a soldier who was knocked unconscious during a battle with the undead and has woken up in a hospital lab.
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.
Remember five years ago when it seemed like everyone was trying to create the next World of Warcraft? The Blizzard MMO inspired so many different entries into the genre that its hard to remember them all. For many reasons those games haven’t stuck around and the genre itself has become rather stale. That’s why when I had the chance to check out the very early days of development on Atlant Games new project Reign of Guilds it peaked my interest.
