Games I loved in 2022
10 January 2023
I played a whole pile of games in 2022. Here are the ones I loved the most.
My Writing Toolkit feat. Obsidian
28 June 2022
I’ve spent about as much time researching and playing with writing applications as I have actually writing in them. I’ve gone from office-y applications like Microsoft Word and Google Docs, to code-focused plaintext editors like Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code and even trialled some writing centric but comparatively expensive options like iA Writer. Each have some advantages, but for some reason or another each one has been missing something that kept me looking elsewhere.
Remaster or Remake - What's the difference and when is too soon?
20 June 2022
People have been throwing around the words remaster and remake willy nilly in the wake of The Last of Us Part 1’s announcement, so I thought I might try to propose a definition and discuss what TLOU appears to be.
Galaxy S22 reviews
8 April 2022
I’ve done a couple of phone reviews for Press Start, the higher end phones of the Galaxy S22 series. Was interesting seeing the best Android has to offer as someone who has barely used the OS.
Here’s my review of the S22+ →
Triangle Strategy review
4 March 2022
I have been looking forward to Triangle Strategy since getting pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the team’s last game Octopath Traveler. Triangle Strategy is similarly fantastic in a totally different genre!
Gran Turismo 7 review
2 March 2022
I reviewed Gran Turismo 7 over at Press Start, had an absolute blast just getting immersed in the world of a Car Person.
Looking back over my games of 2021
1 January 2022
2021 was a huge year for catching up on games I’ve been meaning to play for ages, as well as indulging in new releases. Here are some of my highlights.
Diablo 2 Resurrected Review
29 September 2021
I reviewed Diablo 2: Resurrected for Press Start Australia, you should go and read it there!
Tales of Arise Review
8 September 2021
Tales of Arise rules, you shoudl read my review at Press Start to find out why.
Apple Music Spatial Audio - Quick Impressions
8 June 2021
Spatial audio seems made for me. A self-confessed Apple enjoyer who has also fallen down the entry-level audiophile hole, I was excited to try Apple Music’s new Dolby Atmos features. I grabbed my AirPods Pro, searched the playlists for music I’m familiar with already and got to listening.
Qcma lets a Vita play nice with a modern computer
22 May 2021
I was faced with a problem recently. I have a pile of screenshots on my Vita that I’d love to share online, but the Vita’s sharing apps have mostly found their way to the graveyard.
2020 MacBook Air (with Apple Silicon) review
12 March 2021
I don’t think I’ve had a computer before that was this immediately impressive.
Dell P2721Q thoughts and answers
31 January 2021
I spent far longer than I’d hoped researching monitors for my MacBook than I’d have liked. Reviews are common for the high end stuff - no shortage of YouTube people and tech websites reviewing LG UltraFines and Pro Display XDRs, but finding specific details about midrange monitors that aren’t built for gamers is surprisingly hard.
