Rediscovering: Whirlo

by NFG - 21st February 2018 in Games, Reviews

I don’t know where I got the impression that this game was a good one. Perhaps I thought, you know, Namco. And the main character was charming, who doesn’t want to play a cute green blob-like thing on an exciting […]

A quick look at the Godox AD-200 ‘Pocket Flash’

by NFG - 5th September 2017 in Photography

I’ve been having trouble with my Cactus speedlights lately. After two and a half years four of the five lights started acting up, failing to fire, failing to charge, or firing when I didn’t want them to. It cost me […]

SNK Neo Geo CD Pad Review

by NFG - 29th February 2016 in Games, Hardware, Reviews

The Neo Geo CD pad is typical SNK: it’s strong, impact-resistant, supremely comfortable and utterly unique in its manufacture. It’s also fundamentally flawed and so prone to failure that you’re virtually guaranteed to get a flaky one if you buy […]

Book Review: Influx, by Daniel Suarez

by NFG - 25th February 2014 in books

Android Review: Into the Dead

by NFG - 12th April 2013 in Reviews

Endless Runners are a pox upon the mobile market. They’re common, they’re easy, and who cares? Except once in a while they’re done right, like JetPack Joyride, or Temple Run (so I hear). Basically you run as far as you […]

Nichijou – Utter Insanity

by NFG - 3rd March 2013 in Video

As mentioned previously I’ve been ill, and spending a lot of time watching things I normally wouldn’t have time for. Like Youtube. It’s there that I stumbled across an AMV (go watch it, I’ll wait) that mixes one of my […]

Tron Uprising

by NFG - 3rd March 2013 in Video

I’ve been sick with the flu, and when I’m not regretting being born, I’ve been watching a lot of TV. Downloading it, mostly, ’cause most of what’s on the actual TV is pretty amazingly bad. While scouring the ol’ HDD, […]

Android Tablet: Samsung Note 10.1 Review

by NFG - 26th January 2013 in Mobile Devices

As a follow-up to the Android Phone thread, here’s the tablet thread!  I bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, and I am unbelievably happy with it.  It’s only running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and it’s relatively low-res for […]

Over on DPReview there’s a 3-way comparison between DxO Optics, Lightroom and my favourite, Capture One. Check it out and if you already use one of these apps, be sure to have your confirmation bias locked and loaded.

Another ten year old game review: KoroKoro Post Nin, one of the first Playstation’s last releases: a Cameltry clone with incredibly cute style and gameplay that justified its $35 price tag. Barely.
