Anycubic I3 Mega

Yes, I finally took the leap to get my own 3D printer. After quite a bit of webby research I landed on the Anycubic I3 Mega as hitting the sweetspot for price, quality and features. There is quite an…


Razer Blade Pro and some Kenchy Wallpaper

I splurged out on a beasty yet beautiful Razer Blade Pro late last year with the intent of using it as a catalyst for more 3D creative work as well as gaming when time allowed. Here is the machine…


Netflix Stranger Things

I freely admit to be quite late to the Netflix bandwagon, but now that I am there I am really happy with all the viewing that is to be had, even if the Australian selection is limited. Some of the…


Batman Cartoon and a Movie

I am not sure why I drew this, it just sort of fell into existence while I was doodling on my machine. So I neatened it up a little and made it into a little cartoon of sorts. So here is a squat…


Mad Max

I really loved Mad Max Fury Road in the cinema and while it was still fun at home on BluRay it lacked some of the grandeur of the giant screen. What a fascinating film it is, such a simple plot that…


Wolf Among Us

I got a little distracted and only just completed Telltale Game's The Wolf Among Us. This was a pretty intense type of gaming where it was about decisions and quick ones that ramped up the tension…


Contrast and Independent Gaming

I really enjoyed playing Brothers - a Tale of Two Sons a little while ago, seeing how much clever storytelling a small studio could build into a game like this. Add to that the clever mechanics of…


Dragon Age Inquisition - fin

Bioware certainly pulled out all the stops on their latest epic (hopefully no spoilers in this post to speak of). For me, Dragon Age Inquisition was 115 hours of character development, grand story,…


Grunty Ghosts

Our first suite of the MSI Ghost Pro GS60 4K machines are out and being used by some of the research and teaching staff around the Built Environment. We decided to deploy a set of these after seeing…


Dragon Age Inquisition - first part

The idea of a story and character driven epic fantasy game is hugely appealing and daunting all at the same time. I decided that I was going to dive in and see everything that Dragon Age Inquisition…


X-Wing Storage

One of the things that Fantasy Flight doesnt give us with the X-Wing miniatures game is a storage solution. Even the starter set box doesnt hold the models we get and soon we are all looking for a…


Star Wars X-Wing

First more completish game of Star Wars X-Wing over the weekend. Once again my power over the dice plucked victory from what was certain doom as my rebels used every shred of the Force at their…


The Note 3

When it came time to get my phone upgrade after having a loan Samsung Galaxy S4 there were a few choices. Going back to the world of the iPhone really wasnt one of them, despite the wonderful…


Into Darkness

Yesterday we headed into the darkness armed with our 3D glasses and tickets to the Entertainment Quarter Hoyts IMAX screening of Star Trek Into Darkness. Because I love to have cool films on…


The Hobbit

Peter Jackson and the crew crafted some of the greatest films of all time in his treatment of the Lord of the Rings, bringing Tolkien's tale and world to life for us all. So with the decision to make…


Microsoft Surface Love Hate

OK, I have been playing on and off with one of the new Microsoft Surface RT tabletty laptopy doodads for a week or so and have been having a very mixed experience. When I ordered the machine there…


Small World

With Tuesday GAMENIGHT being super fun over the last few months, I thought it was worth a mini review of Small World that has dominated our play sessions - we just cant stop. Days of Wonder are…


The Pirates! Band of Misfits

The simply splendid work of the Aardman stop motion gang continues with their latest epic The Pirates! Band of Misfits. Watching on DVD today is a pretty jaw dropping, trying to imagine just how they…


Guild Wars 2 - Second Look

After my first look at Guild Wars 2 where some of the promises werent met, yet we had some real promise it is time to look at just how gorgeous this game is, not just aesthetically but more about the…


GW2 Intro

I didnt really expect to find myself in there playing Guild Wars 2, there on the prelaunch weekend with zillions of other people - but somehow that is where I was. The kids and I created three mighty…
