Google Nest Hub Review: Nestled nicely in your home

Smart devices are quickly becoming popular within our society, with many people utilising gadgets like smartwatches and smart speakers in their daily routine. Smart displays are something more of an emerging trend, but Google is keen to make it part of the norm in the household with their Google Nest Hub. If you are not familiar with smart displays, it is an all-in-one control panel for your home.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps Review: A Must-Play Metroidvania for 2020

If there’s one genre to be chosen that defined this generation of gaming, Metroidvania games would be high up the list. The many different interpretations of the genre have delighted gamers, none more so than Moon Studio’s debut effort, Ori and the Blind Forest. Their follow-up, Ori and the Will of the Wisps maintains the high standard set by its predecessor and improves upon that foundation to deliver one of the greats in the genre. Despite being a self-proclaimed indie game studio, what Moon Studios has managed to achieve with the game is almost indistinguishable to that of other games…

Galakrond’s Awakening: How do the new cards fare?

Previously, we tried our hand at answering the question: whether Galakrond’s Awakening was worth it. During our analysis, we reviewed a portion of the cards you’d get. This is where we carry on, reviewing and suggesting where you may use more of the cards you’d get. We decided to go with a random selection to give you a taste of what you’d get. Why spoil the surprise and fun of experimentation? We played these cards in a variety of meta and off-meta decks to see if they can find a home in any of them.  All the cards listed below…

How to celebrate Valentine’s Day amidst the coronavirus epidemic

Ah Valentine’s Day. Most will say that it is a day to finally spend some quality time with your significant other. They are wrong. Valentine’s Day is a battle of wits and cunning, and we all know who the winner is — capitalism.  But this year stands to have more losers than usual. The coronavirus situation has escalated to an unprecedented level, and that means that public health safety is of the highest concern at the moment. What does this mean? It means no more hanky panky, you horny little devils!   But fret not! There are still ways to show…

The Heck Is: Chingay?

Chingay. A name that pops up during the early periods of the new year, before quietly dissipating away from the public’s collective consciousness until the next year — It’s a cycle that many Singaporeans go through.  We may know Chingay, but do we actually know Chingay? Many will say that it is a parade. Yes, of course it is, that much is obvious. But what is it actually meant to be? This is something that I suspect many Singaporean may struggle to come up with an answer. Admittedly, I am someone who has not seen nor cared about it in…

Galakrond’s Awakening is upon us, in a momentous rise aimed at shaking Hearthstone for all players. Its recently-released story mode features new collectible cards to be earned — and used in decks — which could lead to a shift in the Play Mode meta.

Going cashless in Singapore: What to use and when

Singapore is taking cues from China; a country where cashless now is deeply ingrained into society. As part of the government’s Smart Nation initiative, more establishments are making the move to cashless. In the case of public transport, cash top-up will no longer be an option at ticketing machines by 2020. 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…
