Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Review: A Blistered Thumbs Up

Admittedly, I’m not part of the group of people who experienced Crash Team Racing when it was released in its heyday. I’ve heard stories about it since that has elevated it to cult status among the older generation of games. Now, after all the clamour for an update to the franchise, we have a new game to experience: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a remaster of the original game from 20 years ago, with elements included from its sequels, Crash Nitro Kart and Crash Tag Team Racing. You also get the full roster of racers that…

5 network security tips to prepare yourself against incoming cyber threats

The recent Singhealth data breach has put personal data security under the microscope. 1.5 million people were affected by the cyberattack, of which 160,000 had outpatient prescriptions stolen.  While incidents like this are not something commonly seen and are hard to account for, we have the power to prepare ourselves from further attacks that occur in our own home. One out of five Singaporeans own at least one smart device, and it is highly likely that we have inputted our personal information while using said devices. We run the risk of exposing ourselves to similar attacks from cybercriminals if we…

YouthX Campus Game Fest shows why values in sports and E-sports are “all the same”

The dust has settled in what has been a successful outing for National Youth Council (NYC)’s YOUTHX Weekend Festival that occurred during 3 and 4 August 2019. A 60,000 strong crowd turned up to support what was the culmination of a month-long celebration of youth aspirations and talents, attending highlights like the Super 24 Dance Competition, performances for SHINE and also newcomer Campus Game Fest. Campus Game Fest itself isn’t a new event, as the annual gaming event is a significant feature every year in Singapore ever since its first show in 2013.  However, the event organiser Singapore CyberSports &…

How to be a casual racist in Singapore

It’s lonely living in a bubble. So what better way to quell that loneliness than to teach people the ways of the casual racist?  This article isn’t to make you into Trump, God knows we don’t need another one of him. Rather, this here is made to help you hone your ignorance and deliver an ever so slight stab of bigotry. As they say, the sharpest tongue delivers the deepest cuts. 1. Add salt to your food choices Singapore, the land of food. Walk a couple of metres either from work and home and you’ll be greeted by both the…

Set your sights on better security with the new Arlo Ultra security camera

Home surveillance and monitoring are still on the minds of Singaporeans even with how safe the country has been. According to The Economist’s 2017 Safe Cities Index, Singapore ranks second just behind Tokyo, Japan, which clinched the world’s safest city spot. To alleviate concerns of homeowners,  Arlo launched their new home security camera onto the shores of Singapore – the Arlo Ultra. The device is the top-of-the-range out of their camera system line-up, and the Arlo Ultra has the capability to capture a 4K resolution video with High Dynamic Range (HDR) so that users can get the sharpest detail possible…

$54 Huawei phone promo demonstrates the power of “Kiasuism”

Ever heard of this saying in Singapore? “Hell hath no fury like an elderly scorned”. Clearly, Huawei didn’t, seeing as how they have completely botched their whole promotional event for their phones. Specifically, their whole promotion was based on the upcoming 54th National Day and was targeted at people born during or around the Merdeka generation, aptly discounting their Huawei Y6 Pro smartphone to SG$54 from its original SG$198 price. By now you must have already heard about how it has failed spectacularly, with angry uncles and aunties causing a ruckus at various Huawei stores around Singapore. Obviously, the thought…

Blizzard Entertainment brings a new dimension to Overwatch with new feature, Role Queue

Blizzard Entertainment recently released information on a new feature that is set to overhaul the current matchmaking system in place for Overwatch –  Role Queue. Previously, matchmaking let players have the liberty of choosing any character within its 40-second timeframe.  This led to problems with team composition and player satisfaction as sometimes it produced wildly unbalanced teams, with players refusing to compromise on their chosen pick or players having to concede and select a character that they were unfamiliar or uncomfortable with just for the sake of the team. These problems also extend to the competitive scene, with team composition…
