This originally was going to be a video review showing me unboxing the monitor, connecting it, installing the drivers and then showing you how it works but then I thought how hard that actually would be hard and a boring video. If you are in a rush then here is the review summed up – it works very well as long as you are using the two USB cable provided.

So let’s get the technical stuff out-of-the-way first. As you have read in the title this is a 21.5″ – 1920×1080 monitor that runs purely from a USB cable (it is a Y spilt USB cable so actually uses two USB ports on your system) which is very light and allows you to easily add a second monitor to any system that use a spare USB port.

As of today I am pleased to say I am The Much Honoured Irvine Carbrey Pal Grant Mac Fhionnlaigh of Kincavel and you all …. wait someone else is already a laird of Kincavel and I can’t use it? Can I keep the Irvi… no okay.

So I have heard a lot more about people selling land which allows you to become a laird – I even looked back at it in 2007 and wondered if it was actually legal to actually buy a title. If you are wondering what I am on about check this link – Buy a Laird Title from a company you think would actually research it.

PGWS Challenges #1

With the lack of entries yet people telling me they are going to enter, I am going to extend this to the end of July. Get those footage in asap.

It has been a very long while from when I done a contest on Tweaked for your Pleasure but from feedback related to my puzzle ones, I have decided instead to do a gaming related set of contests this time which I am now calling PGWS: Challenges.

So lets kick the ball and get started.

You will need the following:

Sonic Generation: Born anew

81wF-mnKAcL._AA1500_It is not that normal that I do game reviews but when a good game comes out that I actually enjoy, it is always worth a little time in doing a review for it and for once, a modern Sonic game is actually worth doing a review.

As I am sure you may know, Sonic fans lately has been annoyed at Sega because of random little things like in Sonic 4 if you rolled and did not hold right or left you would stop rolling and all that, that Sega decided to release a game that would please both and it seems they may have done it (this review does NOT include the Nintendo 3DS version, I have no interest in trying that one out).
