The Future Of LOL Esports

Ultra Rapid Fire mode, also known as URF mode is potentially the best game mode to be released by Riot Games. The hectic movement speed, frequent gold income and non-existent cool downs makes for an action packed battle to the end, usually ending in a backdoor as cool downs apply to summoners and trinkets. Riot really hit the nail on the head with this one as the fun loving nature of URF means that everyone is technically trolling; the game mode encourages players to explore Riot’s well renowned champion pool, doing so without the pressure of losing lane given that fed champions are very easily shut down...

Plantronics Rig Headset Review

The Plantronics Rig is a combination headset; a headset for gaming and an everyday set of high fidelity headphones. Seeing as I was in the market for a new headset I jumped at the chance to review this unique setup, but does it go all the way to 11 or does it fall flat.

Like a lot of gaming headsets out there on the market the headset comes with a mixamp to let you make adjustments to different channels and volumes on the fly but the Rig has something a little different up its sleeve. While you can adjust the balance between the game audio and chat audio you are also able to press a switch and change to your phone and take calls whilst still gaming. As well as this you are able to take the headset, minus the mixamp, and use it as a handsfree kit while out and about.

Contrast Review

Contrast is a puzzle platformer in a 1920’s themed setting, featuring a young girl named Didi and her friend Dawn.The game starts with Didi sneaking out of bed and into a nightclub where she finds that her family life is not quite as perfect as she hoped. You play as her Didi’s mysterious friend Dawn, and must help with her journey to repair her broken family and get her parents back together.

From the title screen, the scene is set wonderfully with a jazz soundtrack and noir design looks great. I have always loved the style in games such as Bioshock and the individual locations ooze of it, from jazz clubs, to cinemas and hotels, they all look the part.
