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 cables 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 uses a spare USB port.

Becoming a laird

The Much Honoured Nemo of Great Barrier Reef
Laird Nemo of Great Barrier Reef

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.

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.

So lets kick the ball and get started.

Sonic Generations: My Review

It is not that normal that I do game reviews but when a good game comes out that I enjoy, it is always worth a little time to do a review for it; for once, a modern Sonic game is worth doing a review.

As I am sure you may know, Sonic fans lately have 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. 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).
