Nerf Rival Prometheus MXVIII-20K Review (10/10)

"Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds."
I think there has been several times where some company has come out with a blaster that basically sets the bar in terms of sheer insanity. Once it was the Punisher, then the Rhino-Fire, and even that managed to get one upped by the Colossal Blitz. At that point I was pretty certain, you can't really have any more blaster than this, and then Nerf showed up with the Rival Nemesis which might as well have been the atomic bomb in blaster form. Apparently they thought even that wasn't enough so they decided to... make a few improvements. The end result is the Prometheus MXVIII-20K and nothing, and I really mean nothing could have prepared me for just how amazing and overkill this hipfire cannon is.

Overhauled Nerf Air Tech 4000 Mod Guide

As I mentioned in my review, the Air Tech 4000 is a pretty average blaster for how large it is. It does however have a whole boatload of potential to be something amazing like it's smaller counterparts, the Air Tech 3000 and Air Tech 2000. Of course, being practically twice as large as an AT3k, it's going to require roughly twice the work. Basic premise of this mod is a full re-barrel with rear loading capability and a pump replacement. Time to get messy.

Nerf Air Tech 4000 Review (6/10)

Average has never been this weird.
This going be a first for me. For someone who's been in the Nerf game as long as I have, it's kind of odd that I've never owned one of the venerable Air Tech blasters. Renowned for their rock solid performance and extremely simple mod-ability, they are probably some of the finest blasters to ever grace this earth, or at least the Air Tech 2000 and 3000 were. Naturally, I didn't buy either of those two and had my eyes set on a bigger prize, the seemingly more badass Air Tech 4000 which unlike the other two blasters, never got a re-release because it was so surrounded in mediocrity. But is it really all that terrible?

Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) Review

Good just got a little better.
I've used an iPad Air for a couple of years during high school and have had a kind of love hate relationship with them. For the basic stuff, it's always been a very convenient way to get some work done and get distracted in the same time frame. However, I've often found attempting to do anything too elaborate with it was an exercise in head scratching and wanting to throw it out a window, my school's bloated restriction software didn't improve life either. So with that experience long behind me, I got a chance to play around with the new iPad to see how things have fared, for better or worse.

Nerf Zombiestrike Dreadbolt Review (6/10)

Norman Reedus approved.
Nerf's bows have never really been that good. Before they were just regular plunger powered blasters with some useless bow arms and elastic stuck to them that most people removed anyways. Lately they've decide to take those useless bits and actually make them do something but as we've seen before, they're not all that great. Granted, everyone seems to be long past wanting to imitate Katniss Everdeen and Daryl Dixon so Nerf has been dialing back on it's lineup of bows. Apparently someone at Hasbro wasn't ready to give up just yet and this was the result: the Dreadbolt. So, is this big bad crossbow any better than it's predecessors? Let's find out.

Super Nite Finder Mod V2

Hopefully this time it stays in one piece.
Memorial Day weekend left me with a lot of time, and a whole lot of nothing to do apart from dying of heatstroke as soon as you step outside. I decided to go ahead and revisit an old project I abandoned a few years back. The idea was simple, take a regular ol' Nerf Nite Finder and shove a massive plunger into it in hopes of building a springer pistol that could slam darts down range at over 100 feet. Basically I failed many times, but this time around I think I finally got it right.

Bose Soundsport Free Wireless Earbuds Review

Cut the cord.
I've always kind of considered the whole rush for "wireless everything" to be kind of a joke. It's like literally the most half-assed excuse for drastic changes to occur for not much real benefit. Wireless charging? Until I don't have to physically touch my phone to anything to charge it, lame. Wireless headphones? Even more crap to worry about having to charge, lame. Fully wireless earbuds? So not only do I have to charge them now, I'm in even greater risk of losing them, super lame. Yet, here I am typing this review with a pair of fully wireless earbuds stuck in my ears, wondering why I ever thought these were a legitimately dumb idea.
