Cognition: Episode 2 Review

The Wise Monkey managed to do what I had previously thought impossible by piquing my interest enough that I’m actually looking forward to the next episode, albeit in a cautiously optimistic sort of way.

This past September Panasonic commemorated the 40th anniversary of their launch of the Technics SL-1200 turntable system with the reintroduction of their Technics Pro DJ Headphones.

Max Payne 3 Micro Review

In the interest of full disclosure, I haven’t played any of the previous Max Payne games. This fact has less to do with a lack of interest and everything to do with my parents actually taking concern with my emotional development as a kid, taking the time to learn about games before going out buying […]

The Hidden (3DS) – Review

Back when the 3DS was first announced, one of the first things I wanted to see happen was the release of a Fatal Frame augmented reality game using the 3DS’ built-in cameras.
