Review: TurboGrafx-16 Mini

There is no shortage of mini or micro-consoles on the current market, as publishers look to the past to try and package nostalgia. There's the NES and SNES "Classic Editions" from Nintendo, the Sega Genesis Mini, the Neo Geo Mini, and ...

Review: Google Stadia

We've been down the streaming road before. No, OnLive's early attempts are not what most would consider modern streaming. As folks have "pulled the plug" and moved on to ubiquitous streaming platforms, the mere mention of digital media has ...

Review: Falcon Northwest 20th Anniversary Talon

PCs are a dangerous business. "Oh I need a new rig, let's do some shopping...oh God no I'm about to spend $6000" is a common occurrence when window shopping for PCs. In fact, that fine line of finding something cutting edge/future proof yet...

Review: Nintendo Switch Lite

Nintendo is the crown prince of hardware iterations. While the Game Boy blew up the handheld market by merely existing, Nintendo didn't rest on their laurels, divining a full color follow-up on top of numerous sidegrades like the Game Boy P...

Review: Sega Genesis Mini

I was very lucky to have the friends and relatives I had growing up. Although my parents could only afford the occasional console, I had the opportunity to experience pretty much every device (including ill-fated ones like the Wonderswan an...

Review: Valve Index

Are you ready for another VR headset to hit the market? Kinda? Too bad! Valve thinks so, and I've been putting the Index headset through its paces for the past month. My verdict? It's mostly a win for Valve, even if it isn't a massive shift...

Review: Oculus Rift S

Oculus is hustling right now. Plenty of other corporations have caught on to the fact that VR is en vogue when it comes to investors and startups, like Sony, Valve, Google, and even HP. It's far from the "HTC versus Oculus" landscape that b...

Review: Oculus Quest

Over the past three years or so I've spoken to countless VR developers who have nearly all said the same thing: "tetherless VR will be a major factor when it comes to consumer adoption in the future." Zero Latency even figured out a way aro...

Review: Respawn-900 Gaming Chair

I love furniture reviews because they give me an excuse to post my cats. But you probably want an actual review too, huh. I was recently provided with the Respawn-900 "Gaming Recliner" for testing, and man with this massive time sink of a D...

Review: PlayStation Classic

It was around the PlayStation era that I stopped choosing sides and just embraced gaming as a whole. Although Nintendo and Sega lit up my life during tough times with some really amazing experiences, Sony swooped in and offered me some...

Review: Nintendo Labo: Toycon 03 Vehicle Kit

Nintendo is onto something with Labo, at least beyond the realms of their typical level of peripheral support.  Remember the Vitality Sensor? No? What about more nostalgic hardware like R.O.B., who only worked for two games? How about ...

Review: Oculus Go

The Oculus Go came at a strange period in my life. I wasn't able to spend copious amounts of time in VR with my first child on the way, but now that she's settled down I'm ready to jack back in... on the go [yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh].

Review: Xbox One X

I have the good fortune of being able to cover console launches before, during, and after their release, which gives me plenty of time to study trends. Seeing Microsoft riding high off of the Xbox 360, clawing at Sony after their big Xbox v...

Review: Nintendo Super NES Classic Edition

The SNES Mini was inevitable. After the NES model rocked the world, and subsequently sold out everywhere, Nintendo would be stupid to not follow it up. Rumors flowed from retail spaces like GameStop that a follow-up was coming, and lo and b...

Review: Nintendo Switch

Nintendo is still reeling from the Wii U, so its mission statement is a bit muddled right now. Is the Switch a replacement for the 3DS? Nintendo said it wasn't for the Wii U, but then discontinued it mere weeks later. Let's face it, the Swi...

Review: Analogue Nt mini

When I first got wind of the Analogue Nt mini, I immediately went into shock after seeing the price. $450 for an NES re-creation? I had to find out if it was worth the scratch. While many of you will probably never be able to justify the co...

Review: Oculus Touch

VR has had a curious impact on the industry. It's not mainstream yet. It's pricey. It's unwieldy. Yet, it's all executives and developers are talking about. We're not quite at the apex of the "revolution," but we do have platform wars curre...

Review: NES Classic Edition

The NES was the first console I ever owned. Somehow I had saved holiday and birthday money for over a year to get it (the idea may have been planted by a family member) at five years old, and although I don't remember every detail of that p...

Review: PlayStation VR

The VR battles lines have been drawn. The Oculus Rift struck first, but has been suffering from several setbacks like accusations of operating on a closed platform. Valve has hedged its bet on the HTC Vive, the best headset on a technical l...

 
 
Xbox One S review photo

Review: Xbox One S

Microsoft had a lot of catching up to do. I'll spare you the history once again of how badly it bungled the announcement of the Xbox One, but since then, it has made strides. The UI is a lot better than it used to be (especially now with th...
