Katana ZERO Review
It seems like I have been inundated with data and scripts of one kind or another of late, so it is nice to return to reviewing a game. The game is Katana ZERO from Askiisoft and published by Devolver Digital. In it you play as a katana wielding swordsman with time manipulation capabilities who works as a hitman. Your missions will have you visiting a number of places to kill one target or everyone, but before long you learn there is a lot more going on in the city of New Mecca than some want you to know.

Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless Mouse Review
The G502 is one of Logitech's best loved mice and, according to the company, the most popular gaming mouse on the market since its release in 2014. While mice like the G900 and G403 have gotten the cord snip and received the Logitech Powerplay treatment, one might wonder where's the G502 been. It turns out that taking a well-liked mouse that lots of people have strong opinions about and making it wireless isn't as simple as removing the cord and jamming a receiver into a USB port.We've been waiting a while, but Logitech has finally answered the call and brought us a wireless take on the G502 that's worth crowing about.

PC Specialist 15.6" Recoil III GTX Review
Core i7-9750H and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti go mobile. Want a laptop with the very latest components? Browsing the virtual shelves of PC Specialist would be a good place to start, as the Yorkshire-based system integrator tends to be quick off the mark when updating its portfolio in response to new releases from the likes of Intel and Nvidia.
