Nerf Modulus Regulator Review (8/10)

Rock n' roll at the flip of a switch.
Fall is here... well almost, it's still hot as hell outside but that means another thing; lots of new dart blasters. Nerf's Modulus line has honestly been pretty meh since it first started. The ECS-10 was no different than a Stryfe, the Recon MKII was pretty much inferior to the Retaliator in every way, and don't even let me get started on the Tri-Strike. So Modulus has some long needed redemption in order but how are they going to deliver it? With this: the Regulator, Nerf's first select fire blaster.

SuperMAXX 4B (Modified Nerf SuperMAXX 5000)

Well, time for a blaster mod and it wasn't really anything I had planned, just plain bad luck brought me to this point. Anyways I mentioned in my SuperTech 9000 review that it had some airtank problems; the stopper would not line up because the plastic pin that keeps it centered broke. So I went on the hunt for a SuperMAXX 5000 since they shared the same internals. Luckily I found one and one bid snipe later it was mine. So after a quick sacrifice to save the ST9k from being a paperweight, I was left with an empty SM5k shell; absolutely useless, but I had an idea. I had an extra Spy Gear Signal Launcher and after digging up some ingenuity, I built this, and it's extra painful.

Larami SuperTech 9000 Review (7/10)

As rare as it gets.
There's always a rarest something for everything and for dart blasters, this rule stands true. While the rarest dart blaster to ever hit the market is debatable, it tends to fall to Larami who built an increasingly obscure lineup in the early 90's before they were bought by Hasbro. Several of those blasters are highly illusive to this day but they've surfaced a few times over the years. This just so happens to be one of them, the SuperTech 9000. One of of the rarest dart blasters ever built, and I'm now the proud owner of one. Let's take a look at the myth and the legend.

Nerf Accustrike Alphahawk Review (7/10)

Accuracy only goes so far.
Well here we go, a dart blaster review. I've been sitting on this blaster for several months and as most of you have probably been aware of, I just haven't had the heart to review some of the new stuff I got a while back. Let's see if I have some juice left for this one. This the new Accustrike Alphahawk, and by new I really mean several months late but whatever, let's get on with it.

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.
