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...

Review of Okami HD Game the New Release and Remake for PS4, Xbox One and PC

Hello boys and girls, we are back with another exciting review of Xbox game. This time I will write about remake… Or it is re-remake, or re-re-remake… Well, it isn’t so important what remake this is, it is important that this is a great remake of a legendary game, Okami.


The original game was released for PlayStation 2 video game console in 2006 in Japan and North America, and in 2007 in Europe and Australia. In 2008, the game saw release for Nintendo Wii, and in 2012 was released on the PlayStation 3. Now in December 2017, we saw another remake. Sometimes, endless remakes can be a bit boring, but Okami for the 2017 generation remains, at least for me, one of the best games ever made. Originally, Okami was conceived as a simple minute-long tech demo of a wolf running...

Episode IV
Ezflash Reform

It was almost two decades ago that the Gameboy Advance system was released and people are still playing it. With AGS-101 backlight mods being abundant these days and plenty of flash cart options being available over the years, there is still demand for the most compatible and technologically advanced flash cartridge for the GBA.

We will see how feature packed and capable the latest flash cartridge is for this console: The EzFlash ReForm.

This is the MaxConsole Official Review of the latest Gameboy Advance Flash Cart product from China. We will cover the operation and configuration of this simple to use flash cartridge as well as testing several ROMs, including many that have been problematic to run on other flash cartridges and emulators. This flash cart is based on the Ezflash IV and supports...

Hey everyone! I'm back with my latest product review. Today, I'll be reviewing the Syllable D9X Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds.

So right away, let's jump into a full list of everything that comes with these earbuds. I opened the box up and found the following contents:
  • 1 x SYLLABLE D9X bluetooth headset(two earpieces)
  • 4 x Magnetic battery
  • 1 x Battery case
  • 1 x USB charging cable
  • 6 x Silicone earbud(two on the headset)
  • 6 x Silicone ear clip(two on the headset)
  • 1 x User Manual
  • 1 x Zipper bag



The asking price is a bit steep at $80, and admittedly had I not been given a review copy, I'd be hard pressed to say that I would put that much money down for wireless earbuds. However, these are really good wireless earbuds and they seem to be high quality as well. The only issue I ever had was anyone on the other end of my...

The wait is finally over. The ultimate Nintendo 3DS flash cart is here: the Stargate 3DS.

In this review, the basic operations of this flash cart will be covered as well as testing several DS and 3DS games. This flash cart is plug and play and can switch between DS and 3DS mode on the fly as well as within its DS menu.

Please note that this is a pre-release version of the Stargate 3DS Nintendo 3DS flash cart. The final version may differ slightly and have improved compatibility...

Splish! Splash! I was taking a bath -in acid and then I died! True story folks, happened to me more than once. What? You don't believe me? Well, you will. Anyhow, come along with me and check out my review for Splasher on Xbox One.


Splasher is a 2D platformer set in a paint factory inside this crazy cartoon universe. Armed with something called a splatter cannon, players take on the role of our protagonist - a purple haired young man who happens to work in the factory as he sets out to save his fellow Splashers from the evil boss: Le Docteur!

Throughout the campaigns 22 levels, you'll face off against enemies, environmental hazards, and some insane platforming challenges as you try and save your co-workers and collect gold paint. If you're a fan of Super Meat Boy, you're in luck :).

Hey everyone, I'm back! This time around I'm bringing you my review of A Hole New World on Xbox One. So jump right in! I mean up, no wait, I meant upside-down as we explore this throwback to the 8-bit days of glory!

Fear not though, for Fäy your companion fairy will assist you on your journey to banish this evil from the land.
In A Hole New World, players are shown a brief "cut-scene" describing the current state of affairs and are then immediately thrust into the shoes of the aforementioned Potion Master. As the Potion Master, you are the only one equipped to defeat the evil presence using none other than your potions! From the start, A Whole New World looks, plays,...

Hey everyone! I'm back with my latest review - Prey for XBox One. Hope you like it and thanks for reading!

“Through the looking glass”

In Prey - a first-person shooter developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks - players find themselves in the shoes of Morgan Yu - a scientist and one of the last sole survivors trapped aboard the Talos 1 space station. As Morgan, you’ll set out to discover your past by unraveling the mysterious clues you’ve left for yourself, stop the devastation caused by the alien presence infesting the space station, and get the hell out of there!

In Prey, you will explore the entirety of Talos 1, inside and out (zero gravity baby!), as you seek to find out what happened to the crew, to you, and also what exactly the alien presence aboard the ship really is. The aliens, know as Typhon come in a variety of forms, the most basic of them being the mimic....
