Cashless is an inevitability, however, there’s still confusion over what cashless systems we have in Singapore and when to use them due to the variety of options available. This guide is here to help illustrate every system we have now and what situations to use them. NETS  The OG…

Huawei Freebuds 3 Review: A passive ANC competitor

As always with Apple, they seem to somehow make new technology become the norm. They did it with the iPhone, and they’ve recently done it with the Airpods; making true wireless earbuds part of people’s lifestyles. Since then, many companies have taken a crack at making their own wireless earbuds including Huawei, whose latest product is the Freebuds 3.

The state of Esports: Perception of gaming in Singapore

Esports. What feeling does that conjure up in you? The thrill of the rush? Excitement? Or perhaps somewhere at the other end of the spectrum like disdain? Whatever it is, you’re probably either on one side or the other, with fewer people sitting in the middle on the subject. As a multi-million dollar subset of a billion-dollar industry, there isn’t any doubt that esports isn’t huge. The sport itself has attracted a worldwide audience of around 400 million – close to competing with traditional sports – as well as garnering close to a billion dollars in revenue, mostly through brand…
Wolfenstein: Youngblood Review: Double means trouble

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Review: Double means trouble

Ridiculous, visceral and bloody. Those are words that you would normally associate with Bethesda’s recent reboot of the Wolfenstein franchise. For Wolfenstein Youngblood, you get those things as well, however, there is an air of blandness that permeates throughout the whole experience. Wolfenstein Youngblood is the result of a collaboration between MachineGames and Arkane Studios, and like the studios, you and a friend will collaborate together to take down Nazis as you play as Jess and Zoph Blazkowicz, daughters of BJ Blazkowicz, the main protagonist from the past two games. Together, the sisters are out to find their father, who…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Review: A modern re-imagining

Back to basics, that’s where Activision has decided to take the Call of Duty franchise. Despite the continued financial success of the series, there is a general consensus that the futuristic military theme from the past few games (excluding 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII) has gone stale. As such, the publisher thought it necessary to go back to the one that started the craze in order to reinvigorate the series, producing an all new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game.  Developer Infinity Ward is again at the helm for the game and though it shares the same name and several…
