    Welcome To Hanwell – Game Review

    Welcome To Hanwell is a first person, horror game, set in an evacuated city. Your goal is to explore and collect six pieces of an I.D. card, which have been scattered across six locations, from the hospital, to the jail, to the church. But as well as these locations, there’s also a whole map to explore, with streets filled with mist, everything’s been deserted at the last second and is haunted by strange anomalies. Each building comes with it’s own dark story, told visually, with you having to put the pieces together yourself from what you see. And slowly, you come to the horrible realization of what happened here- the…

    2018 – Hardware Refresh Year?

    Nvidia seems to approach fast the launch of the GeForce 20 series, or GeForce 11 series or if you prefer, the Pascal refresh or Ampere or if you prefer, Turing, because no one really knows for certain right now. There are so many different rumors and theories behind what we’re going to be seeing from Nvidia, my personal take on this is that I don’t think of Volta is going to come to gamers, I think that yes, we’re either going to be seeing Ampere, Turing or a Pascal refresh and indeed it’s going to be much more focused towards the gaming side of things. One of the reasons that…

  • Super Troopers 2 Movie Review

    Super Troopers 2 Movie Review

    Time for an unexpected movie review. In this article, I am going to give you my review of Super Troopers 2. I just got back from the theaters on an easy-going Sunday afternoon and I got to say I don’t know exactly what I was expecting, maybe just some pastime but, I loved this film. At one time I was laughing so hard I had to almost stop looking at it. I’m not saying everyone will have a great time or that I was laughing the whole movie, not every single joke hit, but quite a few of them hit it hard and I bet there is one for many people…

  • AMD Ryzen 7 Processors - The 2nd Gen Ryzen

    AMD Ryzen 7 Processors – The 2nd Gen Ryzen

    I still think this second-generation Ryzen came too fast but I am also glad I can do a performance review right this day. I’m not sure if that sounded right but regardless I’ll be walking you through my experience testing out the new Ryzen 7 2700 X CPU, and of course I’ll be sharing my performance results compared to my 1700 X sitting right behind me, in my workstation PC and perhaps come to a conclusion as to whether or not it’s worth upgrading. The specs on the 2700 X are pretty good, but it’s not significantly better than its predecessor, it’s still worth finding out especially if you’re working…

    Beyond Microsoft Windows

    I think it’s safe to say that most of you out there are very familiar with either the Windows or Mac operating systems. Chances are you’ve used one or the other almost exclusively your whole life, without considering all the other options out there. You might have heard about “Linux”, but don’t really know much about it. For example, did you know that there is no such thing as just a pure operating system called “Linux”? Well in this article you won’t have to wonder anymore about what else is out there, because we’re going to break it all down for you and hopefully make it easy to understand. Because…

    SpaceX Memory Lane – The History

    Instead of putting a nuclear weapon on a rocket, lets put John Glenn instead! Maybe that’s how we first started putting men into space. All the Mercury and Gemini missions were flown on modified ICBMs, like the Redstone Atlas and Titan II rockets. The Saturn Rockets of Apollo were the first ones that were built from scratch with man flight in mind, and these were designed and built by Verner von Braun, the guy behind the v2 rockets. When SpaceX first got started, they didn’t have nuclear weapons and Nazis to fall back on, they just had Elon Musk and maracas. Today they’re the most successful private space launch company…

    The Technological Marvel Of Virtual Reality

    In July 2016, a force was unleashed on the world that nobody saw coming, a cultural phenomenon that turned the entire world into a game and opened up a whole new layer of reality to millions of people. What was the name of this technological marvel? Pokémon go. Pokémon go is one of the fastest-growing and most successful phone apps of all time, making over 2 billion dollars for Niantic, the company behind the game, according to the app tracker. More than 380 million people were using the game at its height, that’s 1 out of every 20 people on earth. In case you were in a coma in 2016,…

  • Photonic Computing - The Optical Future

    Photonic Computing – The Optical Future

    The speed of computation is limited by two factors: how fast information can be moved, data transfer, and how fast that information can be processed, data computation. Currently, this limit is imposed via the properties of electricity, the flow of electrons. There is however another field of computing focused on a different paradigm, optical computing, also called photonic computing. This refers to the use of light, the flow of photons, for use in computing and electronics. Light, more specifically infrared light with wavelengths around 1500 nano-meters, is currently used for data transfer and communication over long distances, this is referred to as fiber optics. Beyond long distance data transfer, the…

  • Final Fantasy XV Windows Version Review

    Final Fantasy XV Windows Version Review

    Here is my Final Fantasy XV Windows version review, to give you the insight into the most important factor regarding the game. Originally released in November 2016 for the PS4 Final Fantasy XV has finally made its way onto the PC, bringing with it all the DLCs the ps4 version got so far, both free and paid, meaning that when you buy the game for its asking price of 35 pounds here in the UK, which is slightly below full retail value for a triple-A game, you get everything that it has to offer with no further purchases necessary. This is also a definitive edition as well as a PC…
