I’ve had a cursory interest in the Resident Evil franchise ever since Resident Evil 7. I’ve watched people play that game along with the Resident Evil 2 remake. But until this particular remake, I never played a RE game myself mostly because I have never been one for horror games. The remake for Resident Evil 4 however piqued my interest. Through various channels I had heard that RE4 definitely leans more into its action rather than its horror.Continue reading “Review – Resident Evil 4 Remake”
A Breath of Fresh Air: A M1 MacBook Air Review
Laptops have historically been a mixed bag for me. My first laptop was a 13 inch MacBook Pro that came with Snow Leopard on it and I used and loved the living hell out of it. It was a solid machine and even though I had my problems with macOS (namely Finder), it didn’t stop me from using that machine. Then when I started university I was given a Lenovo Thinkpad by the university. So I used Windows and those Lenovo Thinkpads for a couple years. I was never particularly a fan of any of them. The trademark Thinkpad TrackPoint did nothing for me and the quality of the screens on these laptops were horrendous. They were not pleasant machines to use.

TV Show Review: The Mandalorian
I recently obtained access to a Disney Plus account and one of the shows that multiple people recommended I watch was The Mandalorian.
So this past weekend I started watching it and I finished both seasons in that single weekend. I am not much of a Star Wars fan and going into this I didn’t have any particular expectations. I enjoyed it a great deal.
The characters were all very interesting. I especially adore The Child, so cute. I don’t watch Westerns but I picked up the Western elements in the show. They were well executed. The Mandalorian as a character was very well done and well characterized for someone who’s face we do not see for most of the show. Commendations to Pedro Pascal for a wonderful performance.
One of my most favourite aspects of the show is that there is no filler. The episodes are as long as they need to be and there are no wasted bits. I was enraptured the whole way through. The show balances its seriousness with some lighthearted humour in a way that more shows of this nature should be taking notes from.
As for the Star Wars aspect, it was essentially just set dressing for me. The show is quite enjoyable for someone like me who has little to no knowledge of Star Wars lore or canon. If you are a huge Star Wars nerd I imagine all the little details are a treat. The show never overdoes it with lore exposition, it explains only what is needed and I appreciate that.
One of the better action sci-fi shows I have watched in a while. If you have a Disney Plus subscription, I would recommend it you give it a watch. If you don’t, I would say its worth getting a subscription just for this show.
Verdict: This is The Way. I have spoken.
Headphone Review: Sennheiser HD 300 Pro
It’s been a good run, my friend
After nearly four years of dutiful service my regular pair of closed back headphones, a Bang & Olufsen H6 (2nd gen) has finally started showing signs of physical material deterioration. More specifically some of the glue that kept the right side of the headband together has dried up and/or lost its adhesion.Continue reading “Headphone Review: Sennheiser HD 300 Pro”
