    Locoroco review (PSP)

    Locoroco is one of those games that I'd heard a lot about but it looked a bit childish for my liking. I decided to play it on my girlfriend's PSP one evening for a bit of fun and I have to say, it definitely surprised me! The aim of locoroco is basically to get all your (I'm really not...

    World Of Goo Review (PC)

    One of the more bizarre games that I have come across in recent times, World of Goo is a strategy based game in which you have to build a 'tower' of goo to reach the destination. The tower has is impacted by a number of things, including gravity which makes it harder than simply building...

    How to start a forum tutorial

    Thought I'd make a thread about how to start up a forum. I've done so and sold it quite recently so I hopefully can answer a few questions regarding this. I will be making some more forum tutorial threads soon. For me, the first step in creating a forum has to be buying the right domain...

    Rumours are rife that a Google takeover of Twitter is imminent, so, what are your views on this? Do you think that Twitter will drastically change? Will Google incorporate any of their usual systems into Twitter such as having to use a GMail account to access it? And most importantly, do you...

    StumbleUpon have improved their delivery process today. While those without the toolbar installed will not see much change, those with the toolbar will find a number of things are now different.

    Citigroup announce profit - what does this mean for the UK?

    The Citigroup bank in the US is the latest bank on the other side of the Atlantic to post a profit after 2 years of poor results. They posted a profit of £1.1 billion in the first quarter of this year compared to losses of around £4 billion in the same time last year. So, does this mean the UK...

    Unlimited hosting - your views

    In the last couple of years, there have been hosts offering 'unlimited' resources such as disk space and bandwidth popping up here, there and everywhere. The big question is, is getting unlimited everything possible? Or is it just a way for hosting companies to deceive us into handing over our...

    Are micro-payments the way forward for video gaming?

    Micro payments are something that is popular in eastern Asian countries such as Japan, but has not really been seen by the West. However, there is growing anticipation that the gaming industry will begin to bring this concept over in their battle against the recession. Micro payments are when a...

    Google introduce new webcam system

    Google have now added a new webcam system. Certain places in certain cities are now linked up to Google Maps, so not only can you see where you are going from a birds eye view, you can now see exactly where you want to go. At the moment it doesn't seem very time accurate, but in the next few...

    Blue Dragon Review (Xbox 360)

    Blue Dragon was one of those impulse buys that I didn’t really put any thought into. I kept seeing it being sold around GAME stores for under a fiver and gave in eventually and bought it. Even if it was pretty rubbish, I would have been able to say I didn’t waste much on it. It’s probably one of...

    Pool offering pre-registrations on non existant domains!

    Just read an article about Pool.Com offering registrations on .xxx and .web domains, which don't actually exist. Is it just me or is this madness? I wonder how many people will be pulled into this and pre-order a load of names without realising the extensions do not exist? Should be interesting...

    J-Lo wins cybersquatting case

    I was interested a couple of days to see that Jennifer Lopez (or at least her legal team) successfully managed to get the domains jenniferlopez.net and .org to be transferred to them as they claimed that they were being used purely for financial reasons. The registration of the domain names was...

    Daily Hosting Review

    Daily Hosting was a hosting company that caught my eye as it offered cheap hosting for a UK market. At £32 odd for 2 years, it looked like a pretty good deal. The plans come with a reasonable amount of emails, databases and sub domains and the panel is fast to use. The network is fast...

    Fast Hosts review

    I approached Fast Hosts for hosting as they labelled themselves as the UK's best hosting provider. I was therefore hoping for a high quality service provided by them. I'd first like to highlight the poorness of their customer service. I had problems with them from the beginning and it took...

    Fifa 09 review (Xbox 360)

    I picked up this game when it came out just before Christmas, but found it had a massive scratch down it and it has ended up that I managed to get round to playing it only a couple of weeks ago. So, here’s my review. Fifa 09 picks up where it’s predecessors have left off in a lot of...

    Perfect Dark Zero Review (Xbox 360)

    Perfect Dark Zero was one of the first games to appear on the Xbox 360 console and remains one of the classics. After originally appearing on the N64 back in the 90’s, it was ported to the Xbox 360 after being realised as one of the most influential and exciting FPS games of all time. This...

    Repaying UK Student Loans - What's your strategy?

    So many people worry about student loans and repaying them, but are they really worth worrying about? For one, you are wiped off after 25 years (or aged 65/55 if you took them out a few years back). Also, they don't exactly take hefty sums of money from your wages and only go up at the rate of...

If you want to submit a review, you should post it on the forum and then post the link on this thread. I can then add...
