REDMAGIC VC Cooler 5 Pro review - "Looks and feels cool, but not the most comfortable to use"
REDMAGIC VC Cooler 5 Pro review - "Looks and feels cool, but not the most comfortable to use"What does it say about the world we live in when you now need a separate cooling device for your mobile phone? I never really thought I'd see the day, but dedicated device coolers aren't actually anything new. Given that REDMAGIC's own cooling fans are built into their flagship smartphones, it's easy to see that overheating is one of the biggest issues mobile gamers face in this day and age, with smartphones now capable of running the highest specs for triple-A games. But while REDMAGIC boasts its own cooling system for its community of fans, other on-the-go gamers - particularly iOS users - aren't so lucky. This is where the REDMAGIC VC Cooler 5 Pro steps in. With its snazzy liquid-cooled VC radiator that supposedly keeps you gaming for hours on end, can it cool down heated matches in more ways than one? ... [ MORE ]

Strange Horticulture mobile review - "What’s eating at the roots of Undermere?"
Strange Horticulture mobile review - "What’s eating at the roots of Undermere?"When it comes to unravelling occult mysteries you might think of two ways to do so. You can either take the stealthy, analytical approach if you’re a Call of Cthulhu investigator or a fan of the X-files. Or maybe you’d prefer guns blazing and all-action, like the Evil Dead or Dusk. But one method you might not have considered using plants. For those who don’t know, horticulture is the culturing and harvesting of plants for a variety of purposes. And the recently-released Strange Horticulture is where the magical, folkloric abilities of plants are in fact, very real. As the descendant of a recently-passed grandfather, you inherit the titular shop in the grim and unpleasant town of Undermere. ... [ MORE ]
