Max Payne 3

It’s been a long, cold, dark ten years between drinks for the Max Payne video game saga. The original New York noir masterpiece was released in 2001, and its sequel followed in 2003. Rockstar’s continuation of the series eases up ver slightly on the ...

Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 (preview)

The Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, hitting Australian shelves in June, now records HD video, is easier to control and is less likely to break in the event of a flying accident.

Mass Effect 3

First off I want to apologise for this late review of Mass Effect 3. While I did in fact receive my review copy of the game later due to a mail issue, that wasn’t the main reason why this review is late.

Dungeon Hunter Alliance (PS Vita)

The PlayStation Vita launched with a really good lineup of games; everything from the blockbuster, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, down to the quality bite-sized niche game, Escape Plan. But the RPG category seems grossly under represented. The only game th...

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur really is the product of a dream team of visionaries; pulp fantasy master writer, R.A Salvatore, comic book art legend, Todd McFarlane, and visionary game designer, Ken Rolston. While Amalur doesn’t quite live up to the expectation...

Alienware X51 gaming PC

The Alienware X51 is a slim tower PC that flies under the radar compared to most gaming PCs on the market -- including Alienware's own Aurora machines. It's designed to appeal to users who want something simple and effective, and for users who don't ...

Asura's Wrath

Can something be too epic for its own good? Apparently it's possible, and Asura's Wrath is a good example. The game has a torrent of epic action sequences and awe-inspiring cut-scene. It's just a shame you're watching -- rather than playing -- throug...

FitBit Ultra wireless activity tracker

Fitness gadgets are a popular use of today's technology and the FitBit Ultra is a great example. A simple digital pedometer that counts your steps, the FitBit Ultra is a largely unremarkable device until it's paired with the FitBit website to track a...

Grand Slam Tennis 2

While not as prolific in the video game space as other sports genres such as soccer and basketball, tennis has always held a small niche for gamers.

Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection

Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection is without a shadow of a doubt the best value of these HD make-overs that are in vogue right now. The three games within the collection all hold up remarkably well, and while we would have appreciated some more work pu...

Sony PlayStation Vita handheld games console

When the Sony PlayStation Vita arrives in North America on February 22nd, it'll face stiff competition. Mobile devices like smartphones and tablets have become powerful, cheap and ubiquitous. And with great, inexpensive games readily available on a d...

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded

Taking a crack at remaking GoldenEye was one of the ballsiest things that Eurocom and Activision has ever done. It could have so, so easily backfired. But when it was released on the Wii last year, it worked surprisingly well. Rather than being a sla...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
