  • Review: YubiKey 5 NFC

    October is the national cyber security awareness month, where a lot of people emphasise the importance of InfoSec to daily operations. Here’s my small contribution; a review of my Yubico YubiKey 5 NFC U2F token. It’s a mouthful, to be sure, but let’s get into it:

  • Reviewed: Stray

    The most talked-about game release of the summer has been the post-apocalyptic cat-simulator Stray. Seeing all of the chatter about it, not to mention all of the videos of cats watching their slaves play the game, I felt like I couldn’t not pick it up. Here are my thoughts:

  • Reviewed: Horizon: Forbidden West

    The much-anticipated sequel to Horizon: Zero Dawn was released back in February. I picked it up, and have been playing it since. Is it as good as its predecessor? Does it live up to the very high expectations I have of it? Is it, simply put, any good? Here goes:

  • Review: Polar H10

    I’ve written previously about my use of my Apple Watch to track fitness. This summer, I bought the Polar H10 chest strap wanting to add another, and more accurate, metric to the metrics already being recorded by my Apple Watch. The hope was that I could leave my phone at home altogether, and simply take […]

  • Reviewed: SmartHalo 2

    This is part one of a two-part series on my experiences with the SmartHalo 2 bike computer. It’s no secret that I’ve backed a few Kickstarter projects over the years. Some have entirely failed to deliver, some have delivered products so atrocious that it doesn’t bear thinking about, and some have delivered a product that […]

  • Reviewed: Horizon: Zero Dawn

    One of the PS4-games I picked up relatively early (back in 2017), was Horizon: Zero Dawn. I loved the aesthetic of the trailer, and hoped I’d find it enjoyable. Here are my thoughts:

  • Reviewed: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    I have had a Playstation 4 ever since we last moved. While it doesn’t see daily use by any stretch of the imagination, it gets used from time to time. I saw people gushing about Jedi: Fallen Order, and decided to pick it up. Here are my thoughts.

  • Reviewed: Firewatch

    As I mentioned in my favorite things post, the Nintendo Switch is one of those favorite things. One of the games I’ve enjoyed a lot is Firewatch

  • Review: Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    As I mentioned a few weeks ago in my favorite things post, the Nintendo Switch is one of those favorite things. One of the first games I got for it was Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH), a game that has received near-universal acclaim from gamers and reviewers alike. The game is relatively relaxing and chill, […]

  • Scoring scales for reviews

    As I mentioned in my favorite things post a few weeks ago, I’ve been a gamer for years and years. Going forward, I will from time to time post reviews of games that I play. I think it might be useful to be explicit about the scale I use. The scale runs from 1-10, as […]

  • Review: Peak Design Everyday Messenger

    I’ve been a fan of Peak Design for a long time, and have previously reviewed both their Everyday Backpack, as well as their Travel Line, both of which I picked up through Kickstarter. I have been so impressed with the quality of the products that I also picked up their Everyday Messenger bag back in […]
