Tech Review: Logitech G Powerplay Wireless Charging System: Free to play

There is a pervasive assumption among PC gaming hobbyists that wireless accessories like mice are going to be a problem. That corded solutions are always the way to go. For a long time, this rather conventional wisdom was correct, but its getting harder and harder for it to stand up under scrutiny. Devices like Logitech’s Powerplay Wireless Charging mat are a great example of how wireless tech is meeting its cabled counterparts in utility and accuracy.

Tech Review: HyperX Cloud Stinger Core: Great sound on a budget

The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core shouldn’t sound as good as it does. This is a $70 AUD pair of headphones. You expect certain things from $70 headphones. You expect them to be cheap. You expect them to be made from hard, unyeilding plastic that keeps them from being worn comfortably for long periods. You certainly don’t expect them to sound good. But they do.

Film Review: Skyscraper (USA, 2018) delivers lunacy and ridiculous physic-defying stunts in spades

Is there anything Dwayne Johnson can’t overcome? Earthquakes, tsunamis, oversized gorillas, Vin Diesel’s ego…the hulking man mountain has tackled them all and emerged victorious.  For his latest spat with big screen-worthy roadblocks, the man no longer credited with his “Rock” moniker faces his biggest challenge yet – a skyscraper some three-times taller than the Statue of Liberty that’s been overtaken by a group of throwaway terrorists hellbent on burning it to the ground....

Blu-Ray Review: Ready Player One (USA, 2018) crams a massive, fascinating documentary into its home release

“Somehow I managed to maintain my calm facade, when inside I was just a little boy losing his mind” – Ernest Cline, while on the sound stage with composer Alan Silvestri, whose music, he said, was being played endlessly while he wrote the novel. Later, he trades a signed copy of his own book for a signed Back to the Future soundtrack (on vinyl of course) – a moment of peak nerdism if there ever was one, and if that happens to be a word. This is the sort of wonderful content that you’ll find crammed into the single disc Australian blu-ray release of Ready Player One.... Continue Reading

Win a double pass to a preview screening of The Breaker Upperers in Sydney

Fifteen years ago, Mel (Madeleine Sami) and Jen (Jackie van Beek) discovered they were being two-timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical they became fast friends and formed The Breaker Upperers, a small-time business breaking up couples for cash. Now they’re in their late-thirties and business is booming. They’re a platonic, codependent couple who keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. But when they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship is truly put to the test.... Continue Reading

Games Review: Mario + Rabbids: Donkey Kong Adventure (Switch, 2018): More of the same

Ubisoft returns to Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, the surprise strategy hit of 2017, with a lengthy new slab of DLC with Donkey Kong in the spotlight. To call Donkey Kong Adventure an “expansion” in the strictest sense might be to oversell it. It doesn’t really add much to the game that wasn’t there already. What it is, is more — much more — of what you enjoyed last year. Continue reading Games Review: Mario + Rabbids: Donkey Kong Adventure (Switch, 2018): More of the same
