ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact Review
One of the most interesting unveilings from the X570 launch earlier this year came from ASUS, with the reintroduction of the ROG Impact series of small form factor motherboards. Not seen since the days of Intel Z170 days, the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact is the first truly AMD high-end SFF model from the vendor. Accompanied by its SO-DIMM.2 slot for dual PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 SSDs, a SupremeFX S1220 HD audio codec and support for up to DDR4-4800 memory, the Impact looks to leave its mark on AM4 for enthusiasts just like previous iterations have done on Intel platforms. The only difference this time round is that its not a true Mini-ITX like the previous Impact designs.

ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming Motherboard Review
This is a board you dont want to miss, given its powerful 16 phase power delivery system. ASUS’ AM4 offering at the £300 price point is the ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming. Given the ROG treatment, ASUS deploys the usual affair of premium features and compliments them with an impressive 16-phase power delivery system, solid M.2 cooling shrouds, and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet. If that last point gets your networking brain ticking, there’s also 2.4Gbps-capable Wi-Fi 6 via an Intel adapter.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Review
Modern Warfare brings us back to some of the very best first-person shooter experiences that I can remember from years gone-by. There is a lot of game here too, something for everyone. If you love a good storyline, Modern Warfare has it. Do you want a Battle Royale? It has that as well. Lots of games try to offer everything to everyone, and they fail, Modern Warfare though, almost, succeeds completely.

I am going to break this review down into smaller sections focusing on the three main parts; campaign, multiplayer, and co-op, as well as touching on graphics and audio.

Corsair M55 RGB Pro and Nightsword RGB Review
I haven’t had the chance to check out Corsair’s mouse offerings for the last few years. The last time I had a Corsair mouse in the office for testing was when they launched the Glaive RGB. Corsair has been busy bringing out new models and its high time that I check a few out. So I reached out about two recently introduced wired mice. The M55 RGB Pro and the Nightsword RGB. The M55 Pro RGB fits the bill for what I normally like in a mouse, an ambidextrous mouse with a simple, somewhat lightweight design, and an optical sensor. The kicker on it is its $39.99 price point so I’m excited to see how it performs. While testing that though I am also going to check out the Nightsword RGB is a little more mainstream with a little more weight and a shape that reminds me a lot of the always popular Logitech G502. Both mice have the potential to be great so let's take a closer look at each and see what sets them apart.

Eve Extend Review
Eve, known for its line of HomeKit-enabled smart home products, recently came out with an accessory called the Eve Extend, which is a Bluetooth range extender that's designed to work with existing Eve products.

Many of Eve's HomeKit devices work over Bluetooth, and while that often works fine, in larger homes, Bluetooth connectivity can be problematic because it can be limited in range. Bluetooth products need to be within range of an iPhone to be controlled, so for situations where Bluetooth connections are spotty, Eve came out with the Extend.

Falcon Northwest Talon Review
The configuration Falcon NW sent us weighs in at $5,665 USD. That's a hefty premium, for sure, but it comes with a 12-core (24-thread) AMD Ryzen 9 3900x processor, dual NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics cards, 64GB of DDR4 memory, and dual 1TB M.2 SSD drives running in a RAID 0 array. With this configuration the system is powerful enough to be 4K ready, VR ready and will be so for years to come...

Lepow 15.6″ Type-c Portable Display Review
We all know those moments where you want a screen that's easy and portable without the necessity of being attached to all of the other components you'd find in a laptop. This could be for a number of uses, from hooking it up to your phone, giving it a larger screen, to potentially hooking up a console like the Nintendo Switch. There are multiple uses for a portable monitor, the question then is if the Lepow 15.6" Type-c Portable Display is worth the cost.

MyDigitalDiscount SBXe 960GB NVMe PCIe Gen3.1 M.2 SSD Review
SATA-based consumer storage, while not dead by any means, has clearly taken a backseat to NVMe. With NVMe SSDs now in a majority position with enthusiasts of all types, the mainstream is no longer focused solely on performance. With flash prices dropping and simultaneously competition from retailers heating up, many mainstream users have refocused their attention to the burgeoning NVMe value segment. MyDigital, as they always do are looking to serve up the best value in solid state storage. Their newest value-oriented offering, the SBXe, is another head turner. MDD's SBXe series SSDs are based on Phison's new PS5013-E13T 4-channel, 4-lane DRAMless controller. By utilizing Phison's E13T controller, MyDigital can offer what is right now the lowest cost SSD on the market. The absence of DRAM helps lower production costs, as does employing four instead of the normal eight channels.

Plants v Zombies Review
Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville ditches the "Garden Warfare" subtitle, but very much serves as a sequel within the same vein (root?) — we'll see how many plant-based puns I can throw in before it gets old, though I'm sure it already has because I'm the thousandth person to do so. That staleness is partially representative of the game itself. It tries to be fresh but doesn't really bring anything new to the table. That's not necessarily bad since the foundation it's built on is solid, just disappointing.

WWE 2K20 Review
2019 has been a year of upheaval for WWE. The company has been stuck in a rut, producing the same mostly-predictable content for years, but recently they’ve been forced to make behind-the-scenes changes to their creative process in the face of declining ratings, new competition, and Smackdown’s move to Fox Sports. It remains to be seen whether WWE will be able to successfully face down their current challenges, but at the moment, the situation doesn’t seem terribly promising (anybody who watched Hell in a Cell this year knows what I’m talking about).

It seems 2019 is also a year of change for WWE video games. The WWE 2K franchise has been stuck in its own comfortable rut for years, but this year longtime developer Yuke’s (they’ve been making WWE games for 20 years) departed, leaving Visual Concepts in sole control of the series. So, was Yuke’s holding the series back all along? Or will 2K Games ultimately regret the breakup of the Visual Concepts/Yuke’s tag team? Lace up your boots, it’s time to find out…
