NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Review – Price pinch

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Review – Price pinch

So you're looking for an NVIDIA RTX graphics card here in the year 2020 and you've struck out, time and time again. We've run through the RTX 3080, the RTX 3070, now it's time for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. This card sits below the rest, but retains some key features of this most current (and often far more costly) set of graphics cards.

Game & Watch Super Mario Bros review: Retro double trouble

Game & Watch Super Mario Bros review: Retro double trouble

I must admit, the Game & Watch was a little before my time. By the time I was old enough to play games, the NES had already brought the games industry back from the brink and we were at the dawn of the SNES/Sega Genesis era. While the Game & Watch is something that I’ve never really known, I’m someone who played a lot of Tiger electronic handhelds back in the day, so at least I can appreciate the appeal and novelty of the Game & Watch if nothing else.

Xbox Series X Review – Console as time machine

Xbox Series X Review – Console as time machine

Xbox Series X is a doorway to the next generation in console gaming. Xbox Series X also launched with the ability to play the vast majority of Xbox games (Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One), making the lot look and feel better in the process. It might seem to most that buying a new Xbox is a foregone conclusion - of course, why not? The question isn't if, but when, and why?

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Review

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Review

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 was released to a wary consumer public in late 2020. Here it was, the least expensive of the RTX 30 graphics cards from NVIDIA, ready to roll with power that out-performed its predecessors in almost every way, available at approximately $500 USD. The "wary" part comes thanks to supply issues with other RTX cards this year, issues that messed with the minds and pocketbooks of potential users that, now, might be relying on the RTX 3070 to fill the void left for them after the hype of the reveal and the subsequent failure to meet demand.

Mario Kart Live Home Circuit Review : A big AR checkpoint

Mario Kart Live Home Circuit Review : A big AR checkpoint

The Nintendo Switch game Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is a masterpiece of simple yet extraordinary at-home gaming fun. It combines good game design with the magic of successfully bridging the gap between reality and virtual reality with one of the most ideal implementations of augmented reality we've experienced so far. One considerable limitation is the size of the physical space in which one hopes to race. Is that limitation enough to avoid buying and playing the game at all?

Super Mario 3D All-Stars review: Classic games shine despite Nintendo’s lack of effort

Super Mario 3D All-Stars review: Classic games shine despite Nintendo’s lack of effort

Super Mario 3D All-Stars is an interesting Switch title to say the least. It’s a compilation of three really good games - in fact, three games that are arguably among the greatest games ever made. If, however, the original Super Mario All-Stars, which saw Nintendo remake the first four Mario platformers with 16-bit graphics for the Super Nintendo, had you expecting some grand treatment for the three games in Super Mario 3D All-Stars, you would definitely be disappointed by what’s on offer here. So is Super Mario 3D All-Stars worth the money or is it a game you should pass on?

Anda Seat Fnatic Edition Gaming Chair Review

Anda Seat Fnatic Edition Gaming Chair Review

Many still have this image of gaming, be it on consoles or PCs, as a pastime, something you do during your free time to relax and unwind. Those probably haven't heard of professional competitive gaming, a.k.a. e-sports, and probably can't imagine how stressful and taxing it can be not just on the mind but especially on the body. Being comfortable is no longer just about having ergonomic mice, keyboards, or properly calibrated monitors but also a chair that can let you lean back even in the midst of a grueling campaign. That is precisely the market that Anda Seat is aiming for and its latest Fnatic Edition Gaming Chair is promising the best that money can buy.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Review

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Review

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 is a big graphics card. Physically, this card is large - and it's got a new power connector, too. You'll need to to prepare yourself for the possibility that your current rig is too snug a fit for this new, slightly larger card before you buy it. You'll also want to prepare yourself for a jump in performance the likes of which you might never have seen before... but maybe you already have an RTX 2080, and you believe there's no reason to upgrade? Let's take a peek at what's in store here with the latest in biggest, baddest GPU power from NVIDIA.

Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal review – Gaming for breakfast

Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal review – Gaming for breakfast

How often does something get so big that it gets its own cereal? I guess the answer to that question is probably “a lot,” but I have to admit that I don’t know because I’m not really in the habit of following cereals based on pop culture phenomena. I remember Overwatch getting some kind of cereal. I’m sure there was cereal for Frozen at one point or another. As a child, I even distinctly remember seeing “Stevie’s Stars” cereal on store shelves, featuring and named after none other than famed Detroit Red Wings Captain Steve Yzerman. That, of course, was a Michigan thing, and even then it was probably only a south Michigan thing.

Paper Mario: The Origami King review: Puzzles, puns, papier-mache

Paper Mario: The Origami King review: Puzzles, puns, papier-mache

Paper Mario: The Origami King is a difficult game for me to wrap my head around at times. I think it's safe to say at this point that longtime Paper Mario fans want something more in line with the original N64 title or GameCube's Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. These days, though, Nintendo seems to view the Paper Mario franchise as a more experimental one that doesn't need to fit into any single genre, thereby causing a rift between it and fans when it comes to the direction Paper Mario should go.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout review: A ton of fun, but does it have lasting appeal?

Unless you went underground several weeks ago and are just now becoming one of the light-loving surface dwellers again, there's a good chance you've heard about Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. The game has been getting a lot of attention in recent weeks, partly because of a series of closed betas developer Mediatonic hosted before release, and partly because everyone and their mother seems to be streaming it on Twitch at the moment.
