Apple iPhone 5

Apple & The Future

Apple: Steve Jobs + 1 My first ever Apple product was the 3rd generation iPod Nano purchased in 2007 and I was fixated by it’s sheer perfect design. It was slim, light (hardly noticeable in my jacket pocket), the software ran smoothly and transferring songs via iTunes was quick. To this day I’d still prefer that over my iPhone as an mp3 player, but now it’s convenient to have the combination on one device. It was inevitable that when I […]

Max Payne 3 [PS3]

Max Payne is back! Older, heavier and with whiskey replacing the blood in his veins. Different times call for different situations, and this is a different Max Payne game. Gone are the snow covered night scenes of New York (well, aside from the flashback levels) and in there place are the sun-drenched favelas of South America. Rockstar have taken over full responsibility from Remedy for Max Payne 3 and there are Remedy-shaped holes where they are sorely missed. Gone are […]

GTA Vice City

Video Game Nostalgia

Video games. They’ll give you square eyes if you play too long. Or, they are a darn sight better entertainment than watching EastEnders or Coronation Street for an adolescent. Aside from the movies, where else can you get immersed in the globe-trotting escapades of a secret agent, race a Ford GT through the streets of San Francisco, or have an entire urban city as your playground?¬†Certainly¬†not in Albert Square. I’ve chosen to write a small blurb on a selection of […]

Battlefield vs. Call of Duty

As a loyal Call of Duty player for the best part of a decade, I “defected” and joined the roster for Battlefield 3 on the PS3 over the weekend.

Uncharted 3

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception (PS3)

As far as console exclusives go, Sony’s Playstation 3 had been left short-changed at the start of its product life cycle. The Xbox 360 has timed exclusives on the Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto franchises’ DLC, plus the hugely successful cash cow that is Halo. Game over wouldn’t you say for competition? Enter Nathan Drake.


I’m not going to give excuses, editing my first test short with Lightworks and learning the ropes isn’t as breezy as anticipated. I’ve got user guides and YouTube tutorials by users, but it just needs a bit more time. Part of it is because of the frustration of not being able to be up to the standard I was on previous software, but in the long run it’s for the best. Keep checking back for updates. The dawn is coming… […]

Max Payne 3 – Design & Tech Series

Max Payne is back! Even though the return of the film noir anti-hero is slightly delayed, I think it’s worth the wait. The series was one of the first games I played with an engaging storyline that compelled you to reach the end. With it’s unique graphic novel cut scenes and intense gun play, this is the return of a gaming icon.
