OPINION: Apple Watch fails to live up to the hype

By on

So, after years of waiting, the so called Apple ‘iWatch’ finally made its appearance today, as the lacklustre Apple Watch.  Years of expectations being built up, will it have a curved sapphire screen,  or will it feature a round display? Will it run iOS or something entirely different? How will it offer anything different to the countless other smart watches already on the market? What was announced  today, however, was […]

REVIEW: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

By on

Link is back with a brand new adventure in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. An indirect sequel to the classic A Link to the Past, released back 1992 for SNES; it features gorgeous graphics, captivating orchestral music, the return of the top-down view mechanic, and a brand new story that takes you to a mysterious world of Lorule.

One of the hotly anticipated titles for the Wii U console, Super Mario 3D World brings an exciting refresh to the long-running series.

A simple explanation for those of who have not heard of it, Rayman Legends […]
