The following is a review of the PlayStation 4 Starter Edition of Starlink, Battle for Atlas, received as part of the Amazon Vine program. Starter Edition Just Doesn’t Pack Enough Value I’ll be honest, I was interested in No Man’s Sky, until I heard how many promises they broke as part of the release. However, an open world game where you could explore new worlds and, especially, engage in space combat, really appeals to me.

The following is a review of the PDP Cloud Media Remote for the PlayStation 4, received as part of the Amazon Vine program. Fine for the Functionality it Provides With the PlayStation 4 Sony hasn’t made it very easy to pick up a dedicated remote for the system.

With Sony’s push to have the PlayStation 3 be a household’s first/only Blu-ray player, a capable remote was required.

The following is a review of the Cooler Master CK500 Gaming Mechanical Keyboard, received as part of the Amazon Vine program. Quite the Lightshow, Once You Get Used to It A few months ago I was starting to look around at replacing my Bloody’s B720 Light Strike Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, since while it was a very nice keyboard, the limited lighting options were bothering me. I took a look at a few different keyboards, but hadn’t settled on actually purchasing one, before the Cooler Master CK500 Gaming Mechanical Keyboard became available for review.

The following is a review of Kaiju Crush, received as part of the Amazon Vine program. Rock, Paper, Scissors, Destroy While Kaiju Crush isn’t a very deep game, we’ve enjoyed every play of it. The idea is simple: each player selects a kaiju/monster and tries to destroy as many tiles in the city as they can, keeping in mind what types of tiles they are, and which objectives for bonus points is active.

Should Have Included Colored Bands This is a quick review of the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Whitening Edition bundle. I purchased this a couple of months ago since I’ve had great luck with Sonicare products in the past, but had disposed of mine when I moved in with my partner about a year ago.
