Video games are unique, they provide an interactive experience that makes them different from watching movies or listening to music.

Games requires your active participation and you can't do much else while playing. That creates a strong connection between the game and the player. Regardless of the game genre, there are several key elements that you must touch while writing in order it to be considered complete and before you deliver your final opinion. The key elements of any video game review must cover the following...

Introduction

In a game review, the only thing read more often than the conclusion is the introduction. This is your opportunity to display some imagination and develop your tone for the piece. Each writer has a different style and tactic, and the introduction is a good place for...

A Powerful Review of the Xiaomi Mi Pro 10k mAh Type-C Power Bank in Grey

Power banks are a definite must have accessory these days especially for thin smart phones. I know from experience that my Samsung Galaxy S6 uses up its stored battery power rapidly and by now we all know of the heavy, thick, fat battery pack power banks that have been available for some time to remedy this issue. Those work great, but this review has in store for you something even better.

The Xiaomi Mi Pro Type-C power bank is a ten-thousand milliamp power bank much like what they have offered in the past but this time it comes in a much slimmer form factor and also with USB type-C charging. This power bank is only 0.47 inches thick and weighs 0.48 pounds which is roughly half an inch and half a pound respectively. The product chosen is a nice dark grey which apparently is a very popular color choice for it in China...

Big blue. ONIKUMA!
Onikuma Gaming Headset K6 / Wired Blue LED light Headphone Headset

While I am not an audiophile by any means, I can notice good bass when it is pronounced from a good set of speakers. The Onikuma Gaming Headset K6 is no exception and delivers excellent sound for a low price.

The Onikuma K6 has over the ear speakers which fit nicely and comfortably (using soft memory cotton) over the ears while almost unexpectedly keeping them warm at the same time. The top is padded and it has a stylish 360 degree noise reduction microphone on the side that hinges to about 70 degrees down and 90 degrees up for a total of 160 degree hinge angle.

Here are the listed specifications of...

MaxConsole UnderGround Presents: 'Another Exclusive Product Review' by @rednekcowboy

So, as you all know from this thread: 'CYBER Save Editor for PS4' is now LIVE! that there is now an alternative cheat system for PS4 on the market besides the Save Wizard. Yes there is the Xploder system but it hasn’t received any updates in months and seems to be mostly abandoned.

If you’re not familiar with any of these products, they are a program that you run on your pc that allows you to patch your ps4 saves with preloaded cheats such as Max HP or Max Ammo for the most popular games on the market. It is important to note that all of these products do no allow nor provide saves for using in online gaming. There is also an advanced mode and a “quick add” mode that allows users to find and add...

A fully capable budget-minded modern TV set top box
Alfawise Android 8.1 TV Box / Sporting 2GB of RAM and 16GB of FlashRAM and 2.4Ghz Wifi

Within the USA it is common to find Roku set top boxes abundantly in electronics sections of brick and mortar stores. While these are capable of displaying full HD movies and television shows, they lack a lot of features especially for the price. Personally, I have been wondering about the alternative TV boxes for a while and just got around to acquiring one for personal use.

Welcome to the our official review of the 6th generation of Bluetooth audio headsets!
Bluedio Turbine T6 Wireless Bluetooth Headphone Headset

With Bluetooth being, well, everywhere, audiophiles and casual listeners alike can enjoy a wide range of products to pair to their Bluetooth device. This headset is no exception and offers a stylish look and comfort that is to be expected in high end headphones.

The Bluedio Turbine T6 headset offers noise cancelling technology, a built in voice for function feedback, and, of course, Bluetooth compatibility among several other features. This headset also offers the capability to plug in via a 3.5mm (1/8”) audio plug (I found this handy since while it will pair with a PC, it will only allow you to use it is a microphone by default but a quick re-configuration of...

It’s the same situation all the time isn’t it?
Something new enters the market and everyone’s attention is captured, at least for a while

It happened with the first arcade game a few decades back, it happened with Pokemon Go in 2016 and although both examples given are still successful in their own rights, they stop making headlines. Very often, attention fizzles out, something shinier is launched and heads swivel the opposite direction. We’re seeing a very similar phenomenon this year but this time though, it seems like developers Epic Games are on to something.

New usually (though not always), equates to better. You see it across the gaming industry, from the umpteenth The Sims relaunch, to the casino industry in its attempt to lure in new...

Inventions and technology have seen a steep curve in the past few years, especially in the last decade.

Gadgets and devices which were once only considered to be prototypes or ideas on drawing boards have now become a full-fledged reality. Right from laptops to smartphones and smartwatches, every device has a "smart" tag attached to it. Taking pictures, locating places, projecting ideas, sending information; all of this and more can now be done with a few clicks on a screen, and such is the beauty of how technology has majorly evolved.

Inventors and tech gurus are focused on one simple yet difficult goal - making life more comfortable and performing the same tasks better than the others, in a shorter period. Now, it's not just the "smart" angle that technology has been focusing on lately; there's also a lot of emphasis being put on how reality...

Before I begin my review I would like to thank Team-Xecuter for giving me a review copy of their SX OS.

Hence this review is specifically for the SX OS which is meant for people who already has a jig / tool and a usb cable etc.... If you don't have those then I recommend you getting the SX PRO instead.

Enjoy my review! :)

Honestly, I had my doubts about the SX OS but after spending less than 10 minutes with this my doubts were gone.

What took me by surprise was that how easy it was to set up and how quick and well it operates. To set it up it was just a matter of going onto the Team Xecuter SX official website then downloading the required files they even have an easy to follow manual which I followed to a T and had no issues what so ever.

Once I had everything set up and clicked Inject Payload in a few seconds my switch was into the TX Boot Menu

MaxConsole Official Review of the: RDS Industries Officially Licensed Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case
This is the official Nintendo carrying case for the Nintendo Switch home entertainment console.

Features listed on the package:
  1. Deluxe Travel Case
  2. Game Card Case 2 pcs
  3. Micro SD Card Case 2 pcs
As with any handheld console, one must take care in owning it. This travel case promises to hold and protect the switch as well as being durable with a 1680D hard shell for maximum protection. To be fair, this case does cost a little bit more than other, more plain, cases available, but it has a much more stylish look than the competition.

Right ladies and gents, I won't be covering as much as @realtimesave, as I am certain he has done an amazing review that I can barely add to, But here goes:


I received my review unit on Saturday, but was away so have not had a great deal of a chance to play with it fully.

This came in a very nicely packaged box containing the slide dongle to go in the right joy con, The USB-C payload dongle and a Micro-USB cable, I quite like the packaging logo matching the OS background logo.

20180623_120039.jpg 20180623_120124.jpg

Now as to start with I inserted the USB-C payload dongle into the USB-C port at the bottom of the switch, And then sliding jig dongle into where the right joy con slides in, Obviously make sure the pins are to the bottom with the ON to the bottom on the outside. Also pulled the Samsung 256gb SD card and put the boot.dat file on from the SX OS 1.2 zip file....

Team-Xecuter along with MaxConsole are excited and proudly present to you:
The TX SX Pro Modification Kit With Custom OS

This is the worldwide premiere of the first and only soft mod / USB-C dongle kit available for the Nintendo Switch console entertainment system has arrived, and the following review has been updated today (June 24th), to match the latest SX OS v1.2 release earlier today, so if you read it few days ago, please read it for all the 'improvements'.

It has been over a century since Nintendo was founded in Kyoto, Japan and started selling their first games: the Hanafuda playing cards. Since then, this multi-billion dollar company has made arguably the greatest and most popular video game systems of all time, each of which eventually has been a playground for pirates as well as homebrew developers. Nintendo’s current flagship home system is also...

Team-Xecuter is well known for their high quality console modification products, having especially made a name for themselves in the Xbox 360 scene.

SX Pro moves them into the current generation with a plug & play solution for Nintendo Switch. Inside the package you will find the SX Pro dongle, a small plastic “tool” and a USB cable.

The installation process itself is simple. With the unit powered on, you insert the SX Pro dongle into the charging slot on the bottom of the Switch and wait five seconds.

Then power off (fully, not sleep mode) the Switch and put in an SD cart containing the SX OS boot.dat file. Remove the right Joycon from the Switch and slide the small tool all the way down. It is conveniently labeled on and off so you can see which way it is supposed to go.

Minecraft has the ability to tame a horse. This animal is a friendly mob that is used as a transport. They can rise up, eat grass, wave their tail. In order to use the horse as a transport, it has to be tamed. The site skins4minecraft represents how to do it.

To begin with, the horse should be found. Although, you can create it yourself if you play in a creative mode. If you have a normal mode, it is better to find a small horse and grow it. To do this, you need to feed the horse. The food is sugar, wheat, red and golden apples, carrots. The best and fastest way to tame a horse is to feed it with golden apples (10%) and carrots (5%). The rest of the products give only 3%.


When the horse is tamed, you can saddle it. To do this, you need to click on it. If the horse rose up, it isn’t tamed, and you need to look for another one. If you managed to sit down, the "Open" button will be available,...

Zombies have been around since the mid-19th century and are generally considered to originate from Haitian folklore.

In fact, such was the people's belief in them that they were written into Haitian law in 1864. They are essentially humans in undead form neither dead nor alive in any true sense but, rather, dead people reanimated.

They have been used in horror movies to bring fear to audiences ever since the horror genre first hit the big screen. It wasn't until George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead in 1968 that zombies hit popular culture in the West and interest in them grew and grew. Yet, there is another side to the zombie too. Perhaps due to their increased popularity, a more light-hearted, humorous take on them has developed that started on the big screen and has now transcended to smaller screens in the form of video games and television shows.

When did zombies get so funny?

It happened seemingly overni(gh)te – Epic Games' battle royale-style game, Fortnite, was made available for free download and immediately became a gaming sensation.

In less than a year the game had surpassed over a million players, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Its popularly has been fueled by Twitch streamers such as Ninja and Myth, and more recently a historic matchup which saw rapper Drake join Ninja's team for the most widely watched Twitch stream to date. While some critics have expressed criticism in its similarity to PUBG, the game's building mode adds an entirely new dimension and strategic element that makes Fortnite a much different...

There are very few women in the digital world who are more recognized than Lara Croft.
An English archaeologist, adventurer, fighter, and the main protagonist of the wildly successful video game franchise Tomb Raider.


Lara Croft: A Woman of Many Talents

Lara Amelia Croft was born in 1996, when Eidos Interactive launched Tomb Raider for Sega Saturn, PlayStation, and MS-DOS. The character, meant to be a female version of Indiana Jones, was originally called Lara Cruz. However, the marketing team decided that she needed to be more “UK-friendly”, so a new name was selected from the Derbyshire phonebook. In fact, Laura’s other signature traits, such as her hairstyle and figure, took some time to acquire the classical shape. In 1996, the braid did not make it to the game because only about 540 rendered polygons were used for the model. Her legendary proportions were originally meant to be far more...

Team MaxConsole Proudly Presents:
A Digital Review of the Analogue Super NT

Released in Japan in November of 1990, the Super NES was arguably one of the best entertainment system consoles ever released. It gave the previously released Sega Genesis a run for its money by outselling it by over 10 million units and delighted its fan base with both a strong first party and third party support.

Today, we are able to re-live the '90s gaming experience via a new retro-style reboot of the classic console as a new offering from a well-known gaming accessory company called Analogue: The Analogue Super NT -- This robust little kit of a console offers native HDMI support and a cartridge slot which is not available in all other SNES clone offerings currently available in crowded retro console market.
