When 300 words is more than enough
R Type Final 2 is a trip down memory lane, for me. I first flew an Arrowhead Fighter in the Arcades of 1987.
Following it up with the Commodore 64 a while later. After that, we parted company for a number of years. From memory the original was a revelation in the schoolyard, Gieger styled enemies and the enigmatic upgrade ‘The Force’.
After growing up on side scrollers like Scramble you had to admit R Type was an epiphany.
Traditional long format reviews
Insomniac Games has to be an absolute Golden Goose for Sony. In 2019 they paid a mere $230 million for a AAA studio that consistently and more importantly quickly, churns out top quality games.
Only 7 months after helping the PS5 launch with Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Insomniac have dropped a new PS5 exclusive – Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart…and as expected.
It is a stunning example of a top tier studio putting powerful next-gen hardware to work.
Occasional Features, maybe off topic, maybe news, maybe opinion pieces, mostly interesting.
BrickResales is Brisbane’s best kept LEGO secret.
After running their business as a successful pop-up for many years Judy and Greg took the plunge late 2020 into a bricks and mortar showroom. You could say they haven’t looked back. Over recent years LEGO has been back on another resurgence.
Especially in the hands of some during COVID lockdowns and undoubtedly on the coattails of LEGO Masters success.
BrickResales should be somewhere every LEGO lover knows about.

Yes, I got influenced, the Xbox Wireless Headset was not something I really needed, but seeing it flaunted on Socials and flying off the shelves. I decided I’d better shell out for a set before they were gone. So after seeing my local EB Games run out, I hit a quick ‘Click and Collect’ on the JB hiFi website and turned to my flexible friend.
I had an email from them by 6:30pm, and was dashing into late night shopping to pick it up by 7:30pm. No supply issues there.
Fortunately we’ve had a few Headsets run through the team in recent times. Wired, wireless and both first or third party.
At the end of the day, it’s about how they enhance your game time. The Xbox Wireless Headset is no exception, the first reveals promised a quality unit and they didn’t mislead.
Fresh out of the minimalistic packaging and box, which is more PS5 than Series X the new Headset smell is unmistakable.
