Microsoft Zune 30 Review

Welcome to the social. Nobody goes here anymore.
I'm pretty sure most of you guys can figure out what convinced me to do this review but nonetheless Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 threw some shade at Microsoft's long dead rival to the iPod, the Zune. Yes it's that infamous MP3 player from the mid-2000's that you saw in FYE all of a sudden and wondered what the hell it was as you went looking for the iTunes gift cards. It was a complete failure to say the least but why exactly? Let's find out.

PDP Gears of War 4 Lancer Replica Review

It's a very, very mad world.
This was something interesting I found at Best Buy a few days ago, a replica Lancer from Gears of War and the last one on the shelf at that. I've never played Gears of War in my life but hey, chainsaw guns are cool so I picked it up for the hell of it. Obviously being a mass produced prop, I didn't expect this thing to be an A-grade Hollywood replica but for what it is, PDP did a kickass job.

Apple Macintosh 512k Overview

A E S T H E T I C
It's been a minute right guys? I'm back with more crap dug up out of someone's attic for this post and I got more things coming soon. Finals have been killing me lately but I will also say in advance I won't be blogging for about a week because I'll be in California, I might post about how that goes later on. Anyways I've taken up flipping computers as kind of a side gig and this hunk of 1980's yellowed plastic is the latest thing to land on my doorstep. In case your aren't the type that spends your days listening to vaporwave, this is a Macintosh 512k and it's chuck full of history. Let's take a look.

Razer Mamba 2015 Review

The bitch is back.
Way back in 2012 while every idiot was waiting for the world to end, I reviewed my first gaming mouse: a Razer Mamba. It was a glorious piece of hardware that unlike anything I had used prior to it and that mouse has been proudly serving me to this day however it's gotten a bit old. Nearly five years of heavy use haven't exactly been kind to the old mouse, it's hardware is still performing sound but the cosmetics are starting to wear and the battery, even though it was never very good to begin with is bordering on toast. While I could have kept the old mouse going for a couple more years with some replacement parts, I figured I might as well relieve myself of what flaws it had entirely and upgrade to it's newly spawned successor. Say hello to the new Razer Mamba.

Razer Ornata Chroma Review

Light it up.
The last keyboard I owned and reviewed was Razer's former flagship, the DeathStalker Ultimate which was a fine keyboard but it was horribly expensive considering it's key feature was a bit pointless and it wasn't even mechanical to begin with. I decided to look for a more conventional and preferably mechanical replacement for that keyboard but then I found Razer had just announced this thing. This is the Ornata Chroma, one of the few hybrid keyboards on the market.

Nintendo Switch Review

This isn't even it's final form.
It's been a while since I parted ways with my Wii U, it left a bad taste in my mouth. Sure it had great games and a fun social experience but the rest of the experience just felt completely inferior to the two other consoles it was competing against. Nintendo had two options at this point, one was to play it safe and build a run of the mill console akin to the Xbox One and PS4 or take yet another risk, do it right, and hope it works out. They went with the latter and this is the result, the Nintendo Switch. It's a revolutionary new hybrid console that does a whole lot of things right, but also some things wrong. Let's dive in.

Apple Mac Pro Review

Garbage day.
Continuing onward with my exploration of the foreign Macintosh, I decided to jump straight to the top of the pile for this one. So after A bit of shopping I managed to snag a middle-spec Mac Pro for what obviously was not a cheap price. I by no means intend on keeping this thing since I already have a high performance desktop and this thing is just simply adding to the already encroaching on ridiculous wire clutter I have at my desk. Eventually I'm going to throw a bunch of parts in it and send it on it's way like I did with the MacBook I briefly covered on Twitter. However, just based off my experiences so far, I might just have to pick up another one of these in the future.
