Kenwood DPC-MP922 Portable MP3 CD Player Review

We all know MP3's are here to stay even with the fall of the once popular Napster. But do MP3 CD players have what it takes to stick around with the new devices out there today? I'm thinking about the iPod and Nomad in particular. These 2 devices have changed the landscape of MP3 playing, in the portable sense.

Dark Age of Camelot Review

Over the last few years we have seen the creation and rapid expansion of the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game genre. Although Ultima Online didn’t really start the genre, it did a lot to popularize the idea of a virtual world where many people could congregate online and interact with each other. As if a game of this kind wasn’t addictive enough for some people, the transition from a 2D world to a 3D one surely made it so.

Batman Vengeance PS2 Review

Based on Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's TV series, Ubi Soft's Batman: Vengeance is the best Batman game in years. The whole animation style and presentation has been brilliantly created to give you the feeling of being inside one of the series’ episodes with its re-constructed 3D environment of Gotham City and over 40 minutes of gripping cinematics featuring the original voice cast of TV's The New Batman Adventures.

Final Fantasy X Review

When you’re playing a video game, there’s no bigger complement to pay it than to wish that it was over just so that you could play it all over again. That’s what I felt playing Final Fantasy X. This installment of Square’s flagship series makes good use of the PS2; bending some time-tested FF traditions while outright breaking others.

OCZ Dominator 2 Review

I have the privilege to test another one of OCZ’s products. This time it’s a heat sink fan. I have to say that OCZ has had a long-standing record of producing top quality product so I shouldn’t be disappointed by its performance. The question here is that new XP AMD processors above 1.4Ghz are heating up much faster than the K6 series.

Fuzion Frenzy Review

Hmmm, better late than never with a review for an Xbox launch title, I suppose! :( Seeing as how it's been a while since Fuzion Frenzy has appeared on store shelves in November along with the Xbox, we'll cut straight to the chase and start doling out the impressions of this multiplayer party game.

Samsung SyncMaster 170T Review

LCD monitor prices are continuing to drop, and perhaps this holiday season is the time to invest in an ergonomic display. If you already own an LCD screen, then perhaps it’s time to upgrade to a 17” model; I know I want to. We have reviewed numerous amounts of LCD monitors, and the display under the scope today is none other than the Samsung 170T. Samsung is well known for their line of displays and is a leader in innovation. The 170T did not disappoint.

Conquest: Frontier Wars Review

It seems that no review of Conquest: Frontier Wars would be complete without first giving a mention about its tumultuous past. Highly anticipated by many, C:FW almost never made it out of the construction queue.

Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer Review

Logitech was first to market with a mouse that was both wireless, and optical. Their wireless MouseMan Optical is to date one of my favourite mice thanks to its ergonomic design, cordless convenience, and precision control. But just because Logitech got the jump on Microsoft didn’t mean they had won the game just yet, so it was no surprise that Microsoft would come tearing down the peripherals straightaway with the Porsche of cordless mice: the all-new Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer.

AMK Lian Li PC-67 Aluminum Case Review

If you haven’t played with an aluminum case in person yet it’s really quite something different. Not only are they amazingly great looking, they have awesome heat conductivity and are many times lighter then regular cases. Lian-Li is one of those notable computer chassis manufacturers now known for their alluring aluminum computer cases. They make an entire lineup of aluminum PC cases for just about any type of use.

Digisette DUO-64 MP3 Player Review

To most, being “two-faced” is an undesirable trait to have. However, in the Digisette Duo-64’s case, it is more than a welcomed attribute. The Duo-64 functions both as a personal MP3 player and a self-contained MP3 cassette adapter – all in one.

Luigi's Mansion Review

Mario, Mario, Mario. You might be able to take out poor defenseless turtles. You might be able to step on walking mushrooms who are angry only in appearance but misinformed and misunderstood at heart. You might be able "grow larger" whenever you "absorb the magic" of those Magic Mushrooms. And you still get the girl. But when it comes to the dark majesty of the children of the night, your portly self is suddenly powerless (not that it was ever powerFUL).

AMD Athlon XP 1800+ Review

The competition between AMD and Intel has escalated even more with the release of AMD’s XP 1800+. If you look at what AMD is up against, you see it’s an uphill battle all the way to the top with Intel’s chips at 2000MHz.

Wave Race: Blue Storm Review

It's been a while since we've last seen Wave Race, Nintendo's very own jet-ski racing game series. Sequel to Wave Race 64, Wave Race: Blue Storm is no less than a launch title for the Nintendo GameCube, and not a bad one at that.

HP Laserjet 1200 Review

The HP laserjet 1200 is a high-speed midrange laser printer with few of the frills, but all of the charm of an office or home HP printer. I’ve used HP printers for over 10 years and the 1200 offers the familiar feel of its long standing line of printers, with one of those new age, small footprint designs.

Belkin Nostromo n50 & Nostromo n30 Review

Belkin is a company that manufactures a lot of products that can be found in many a computer stores' accessories section. They make everything from wrist pads, mouse pads, armrests…. almost every accessory out there. Until recently, Belkin had not been active in the gaming industry and its many related products. But now, Belkin steps into the gaming grounds with its new line of Nostromo line of products, not one but five – everything from "game pads" to "Speedpads". Two products I have for review today are just two of the complete gaming line of Nostromo products, the n50 Speedpad and the n30 GameMouse.

To meet the demanding requirements of today video games, you need a video card that can take the heat when things get tough. Inno3D has produced their version of nVidia’s GeForce3 much to gamers delight. This “bad boy” card has all the power to take-on today’s games and more.

Gigabyte GA-7VTX Motherboard Review

Gigabyte is a well known and generally well-trusted motherboard manufacturer. They are also known for their regular and early support of AMD's latest and greatest. The GA-7VTX is a Socket A board based on the VIA KT266 chipset. The two major improvements this chipset brings to the table (over the recently declared, ancient KT133[A]) are Double Data Rate SDRAM and V-Link which is VIA's answer to Intel's interlink bus (dubbed the Interlink Hub Architecture).

Divided Ground: Middle East Conflict Review

War games have covered many of the famous wars of modern history - the US Civil War, World War I, World War II, and more - in their many battles and theatres. The 20th century conflicts in the Middle East, however, are covered for the first time by a major player in this genre, Talonsoft. Talonsoft's Divided Ground: Middle East Conflict 1948-1973 chronicles first the war surrounding the birth of the modern state of Israel and its subsequent wars of survival in 1956, 1967, and 1973.

Abit Siluro MX400 Review

Abit is well known for their motherboards. But did you know Abit makes other PCB devices? Abit has a cheap and fairly powerful Geforce2 MX based video card, the Siluro MX400, that has 64MB of SDRAM and features like TV-out and DVD decoding.

Terratec M3Po Go MP3/CD Player Review

As another contender in the MP3/CD player market, TerraTec approaches as a relative newcomer. It’s only been founded in 1994, but already it is one of the largest sound card manufacturers in Germany. TerraTec’s latest offering is the M3Po Go, a MP3/CD disc player, which plays CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs.

ATI Radeon 7500 Review

I would have to say that ATI has a tremendous job in giving nVidia a run for their money. The mainstream market is pretty much made up of these two giants. ATI’s Radeon chip series is a remarkable new chip technology. Designed for high-end graphic manipulation, the Radeon chip has proven to be more than just a regular video card.

Xbox Birthday Bash Report

The Xbox, Microsoft's entry into the console videogame arena, is finally launching across North America and to celebrate its release here in Canada, Microsoft had organized the "Xbox Birthday Bash" event to kick off the system. Were there similiar events in your neighborhood? Held Wednesday evening at the Virgin Megastore in our fair city's downtown core, the public was allowed to try out various Xbox launch titles all set up at stations on Virgin's second floor.

Samsung YEPP YP-30S Review

The Samsung YEPP YP-30S design is more suggestive of a futuristic pocket watch. The circular, easy-to-read LCD on the face of the unit even shows the date and time.
