The Worst of Pokemon Sun and Moon

Pokemon Sun Logo

It’s been just over a week now since Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon were released in the UK, and having sunk over 50 hours into the game, I’ve now become comfortable with most of the new features that this latest generation has brought to us. Whilst Pokemon often gets flak for never really changing up its gameplay, it’s fair to say that Sun and Moon have received some of the biggest changes in the series yet, and whilst some of these changes are well received, other changes may not feel so welcome. So today we’ll be taking a look at some of the best, and worst, new and old features that Sun and Moon have to offer.

Whilst I’ll try to keep main story spoilers out of this, there may be some minor gameplay/post-game spoilers ahead, so venture forth with caution:

Woodford Design Quickdraw V3 Cable Review

Quickdraw Cable by Woodford Design

Here’s a situation which might seem familiar to you. You go to charge your iPhone and, oh, it’s not charging! You make sure you plugged the lightning cable in correctly, and you’re sure the power adapter is working right, so what’s the issue? You take another look at the lightning cable and you see that the cable has in fact split. This is something that nearly everyone who has owned an iPhone had probably dealt with. Most of the apple lightning cables, whether purchased from Poundland or the Apple Store, seem to have a knack for splitting. Not only can this stop the cable from working, but it could also create a safety hazard, depending on how much of the wires become exposed.

Luckily, there is a solution for this: The Quickdraw V3 Cable by Woodford Design.

Beer52 Unboxing and Review (October)

Beer52 Box

Craft beers have been on the rise in popularity more and more over the last five to ten years. In fact, five years ago, I shot a documentary as part of a University project that focused on craft beer and ale, as well as the rising trend in pub culture, with more bars and pubs opening up that solely specialised in craft beers. Of course, it can sometimes be difficult to find craft beers away from the bar.

Even if your local supermarket sells craft beers, you may find the prices expensive and the range limiting, meaning it’s more difficult to find new and interesting flavours. This is where Beer52 comes in. Beer52 is a monthly subscription service where they will send you 8 fine craft beers and ales under a different monthly theme, allowing you to try flavours you may have never thought or known about before getting the box.

PlayStation VR – The Future of Play

PlayStation VR Headset

Virtual Reality. It’s a subject that I’ve covered more than once on this blog. Most of my experiences up to now haven’t been overly fulfilling. I’ve tested the Oculus rift with a number of different peripherals, but the games didn’t feel engaging and a lot of the peripherals actually took you out of the experience, instead of adding to it. Then, of course, is the slew of mobile games for the cheap “at home” VR experience, and whilst it might be fun to go on the VR Rollercoaster once, it soon loses it’s thrill ride when there’s nothing to engage with. This, at the moment, is the biggest flaw in VR gaming. The lack of engagement within the game…

Last week, I got the chance to go and test out the upcoming PlayStation VR… And I’m glad to say that things are about to change.
