    Countryside mayhem

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 20/04/2018

    » The latest entry to the Far Cry franchise is finally here after much anticipation. Its predecessor, Far Cry 4, delivered a pretty ruthless villain, a gorgeous open-world environment, but a story that didn't appeal to some and a gameplay that was criticised as being too similar to the previous game. The question now is whether Far Cry 5 avoided these pitfalls.

    The mustachioed Italian plumber makes iOS debut

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 28/12/2016

    » It's been a long time coming, but Mario -- the crimson-clad, mustachioed, Japanese/Nintendo-born Italian plumber -- has finally hopped his way onto smartphones in the form of Super Mario Run, the mushroom-chugging, fireball-flinging coin maniac's debut feature on touch-screen devices. Downloadable for free now on iOS and next year for Android, the game's simplistic touch-based platforming is great, losing none of the precision of control and inventive level design synonymous of Mario games.

    Not yet final

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 21/12/2016

    » Ever since its first title was released in 1987 for the Nintendo Entertainment System (known colloquially as the NES), the Final Fantasy franchise has been -- and arguably remains -- one of the best-selling franchises in the global gaming industry, with millions of players worldwide excitedly awaiting each new release. This year, after a decade-long wait, fans of the series were treated to the 15th main entry to the series, titled simply (and ironically, considering the franchise's name) as Final Fantasy XV, the first single-player, supposedly true-blood Final Fantasy game to be released since Final Fantasy XIII in 2009 (or even longer, depending on who you ask).

    Microsoft Paint might be fading

    Life, James Hein, Published on 02/08/2017

    » What is the one program you can count on to be in Windows, apart from say Minesweeper? Microsoft Paint. It's the poor man's drawing tool and screen capture tool where it is as simple as Alt-Printscreen, Start-Run MSPaint, CTRL-V, Crop Marquee Select Crop, CTRL-A CTRL-C, Switch to email and CTRL–V to get something from your screen into an email (or anything else).

    Even writers need to think before tweeting

    Life, James Hein, Published on 16/08/2017

    » Without the internet, there would only ever be part of a story. Consider the recent example of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. She watched an edited video and then took to the internet using her fame to decry the treatment of a small child by a prominent leader. Her concerns were quickly and widely spread but the unedited footage showed the opposite. Even the mother of the child finally got involved and asked the internet to please tell J.K. Rowling that she was wrong. At the time of writing Rowling had apologised to the mother but not the leader she smeared. In the current fast pace and instant Twitter-response world it is important to take a step back and do some personal investigation before reacting, often incorrectly, to a flash tweet or news story. If you see a clip try and find the full or unedited version, that extra time can save you from future embarrassment, though some personalities seem to be immune to it.
