Rainbow Moon (PS4) – First Impressions

Had this game lying around on the digital pile for a while now, finally decided to take a closer look and… well… I don’t think I’ll be playing this much after the first session. First, a quick description of the game: It’s a strategy-rpg with an isometric view. On the main map you go around exploring…

DC Titans 2018 – After 3 Episodes

If you are into DC Comics superheroes and the TV / movie adaptations related to them, you have probably seen the trailer for the new Titans series. To put it lightly, it did not exactly garner a positive reaction, unless mocking (”Fuck Batman”) counts. It made the series look like it’s gonna be very “grim-dark…

Intellivision Amico – Another console enters the ring?

According to a recent reveal, Intellivision (older gamers might remember that name) is preparing to release a new console of their own – called Amico – in 2020. Looking at the basic data, this is obviously not targeted at the same crowd as the PS4 / Xbox One / Switch. The Amico is supposed to…

Intel and the 10nm Process… what a mess

In recent years I couldn’t help come to the conclusion that Intel has very much been resting on their laurels thanks to AMD not putting up much of a fight for a while now, pre-Zen. At least to me that would be the most obvious explanation why Intel has had so much trouble with getting…

Transformers – Becoming a Fan and the Early Days

My first contact with Transformers was, like for many people of my age, in my childhood around the end of the 80s. I can’t remember what exactly came first, but I know that I hardly watched anything of the cartoon at the time. My only exposure to the cartoon was when I visited a school…

Market Change – Compact Cameras

While planning my next smartphone choice, comparing models and especially looking at the camera components, I was reminded again how much things have changed since I bought my first digital camera, back in 2004 (a neat little Canon Powershot A400, very decent cam especially considering its low price). At that time, compact digital cameras were…

Short Game Report: GemCraft – Chasing Shadows

Some years ago when the browser version of this game was new, I played quite a bit of it, as I was rather into the Tower Defense genre. I liked the way it played and what you could do (combine gems, switch them into different towers…). Relatively recently I discovered that they actually made a…

Currently (Re)Playing: Final Fantasy 15 (7)

During the last sessions I continued the main story up to the point where I have the material I need to repair the boat and continue on to the island. Also completed several sidequests along the way. I’m still enjoying the game on this second playthrough, finding new content here and there (the camp quest…

WordPress Gutenberg – First Impression: Terrible!

So since WordPress 4.9.8 has a popup encouraging users to try out the new Gutenberg editor, I thought “what the heck” and did so. But as you can guess from the post title, it didn’t go well. How badly did it go, you ask? Well for starters I could not even create a simple post…

Huawei P20 Pro – Impressions after some use

So after some months of day-to-day use, how has my experience with the phone been?  Battery life Has been usually good for more than one day, with a bit less use I could get the phone through 2 days pretty much. So on that front I am absolutely happy with the phone. The high capacity…
