Good value

Reviewed by on

This is Corsair's cheapest mouse and for me, more comfortable than their Harpoon. The lack of RGB does not bother me as the bit that is there, is in the right place namely the scroll wheel and not under your palm. If they included a braided cable, I would have been happy to pay R100 more.

I find it funny that Raru only post reviews they can get behind and answer, else the rest are "dismissed" after I have noticed other online "gaming" sites are providing a better service than you guys, tis time to say GOODBYE...

An honest PS5 review

Reviewed by on

So I have had my PS5 for about a week now and here are my feelings.

The looks:
The PS5 console itself is a chonky piece of hardware, an absolute unit. The largest console I have ever owned. This device will stand out in most living rooms. Sony was obviously going for a bold statement here. I also feel that form follow function here as the curved "wings" prevent the air intakes from getting blocked. Just be prepared to have space available for this console. The device is also very quiet compared to the PS4 Pro.

The controller:
This is the best Sony controller to date. It is slightly larger than the PS4 DualShock and slightly heavier. It also has haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that, while not transformative to the gaming experience, adds some great tactile feedback to games that support it. Also, USB-C FINALLY!

The UI:
This can be summed up in one word. Elegant. There will be improvements as the patches roll out, but the UI and UX is perfectly functional at launch.

The games:
While there are not many games that are really 100% exclusive to the console yet, the Spider-Man games running the PS5 versions are fluid at 60FPS but you can only have Ray-Tracing enabled at the 30FPS mode. I think we will in time see some amazing 1st part Sony games just like we did for the last generation. But for now, if you missed out on the launch drops of the consoles, you are not really missing out. So there is really no need to be leaving rude reviews for Raru like some of the guys below this.

All in all, this is a true "next-gen" console that is a must get within the next 6 months to a year due to the "skinny" launch line up of games. The controller is a big improvement and the looks of the device itself are striking. I see this console hitting its stride with a few more next-gen exclusives landing next year.

No Updates on Allocation

Reviewed by on

I received no updates on Allocation for 1st batch and 2nd batch.... Terrible service from Raru as usual... Those who you call speak without passion to their customers, believe they can control the narrative all because they have no recording system for calls and therefor can speak to customers any how.

Let me

Reviewed by on

So I see there is quite a debate going on in the reviews of the Xbox Series X, but no reviews for the Series S yet. I don't really have anything to compare it with, because this is my first ever real console. I actually bought it for the kids, so we bought 3 extra controllers as well.

I decided to go for the Xbox, because of the following reasons:
1. The price - it is more affordable than the PS5 Digital Edition.
2. You can play Minecraft, Fortnite and Roblox where Roblox is only available on Xbox (when it comes to consoles). These are the games that the kids want to play, because their friends are playing it.
3. Many previous generation games are available to play.
4. Many games support split screen which is just better on a 4K TV than on a 17" laptop screen.

Did not get the product as advertised

Reviewed by on

Dishonest supplier at best. Screen guard is not clear and not fingerprint resisted. Doubt it was Tuf-Luv as the packaging was some generic Asian branding. Guard has black trim all around which covers the curved edges of the screen on the side.

Not happy with this.

When can we expect the second batch of preorders to be shipped and delivered?

Reviewed by on

I was under the impression the second batch of preorder stock would start shipping around mid-December.

However, my order history suggests that the unit may only ship on 31 December; when will you be able to provide some clarity?

Raru Admin Note:

The 31 Dec. is a place holder date. The hope is that the stock will come in before then, but if there are delays we will let customers know.

A Must Buy Next-Gen Console

Reviewed by on

This console is really everything the marketing of it suggests. The quick resume feature on this console makes that load times are not common place in this generation. You can swap between multiple games and load in right where you left off for up to 10 games. The console is ultra fast thanks to its SSD and its quite responsive and this will be the console to play all 3rd party games which will run best on this console. Its the worlds most power console after all.

Xbox exclusive games tend to be co-op and have multiplayer so you can enjoy the best experiences with your friends unlike the competitor consoles that focus on just primarily single player games which means more replay value on XBOX.

Don't believe the review by Enrico K below, he is clueless and hasn't bought the product as it seems. Xbox has 23 in-house studios to make exclusive games for the console that will start to release from early 2021. Sony only has 13 in-house studios and wont have the advantage of having many exclusive games this generation. XBOX has family friendly and more mature games already on the market with much more to come.

The cherry on top is the Gamepass subscription service gives you an instant library of games for a low price. Its essentially the NETFLIX of games.

Happy gaming !!!!

Challenging co-op

Reviewed by on

Quick to teach, once you have taken the time to figure out the rules. Not the game to bring to the table if you have someone in the team with a dominant personality, works great if everyone can work to a common goal. Not every game is going to be won, but you do have a sense of urgency as the water rises. Best played with more players to fulfill more roles, but still great with 2-3 players. It is easy to see why this game has received a Mensa award.

Easy to learn

Reviewed by on

I had watched many YouTube videos to start the hobbie with, Carcassone was one that gets mentioned consistently. I have now played this with older and younger players, the teach is relatively simple and the game plays out between 30-45 minutes. It has the feel of building a puzzle together, while being competitive enough to want to block other players from scoring. Loads of fun, quick to get on the table and best of all no dice hammering down on the table.

Brilliant way to start

Reviewed by on

Though every Deck Builder in a series comes with the same cards, the four Booster Packs add some variety. A friend and I both bought a Theros Beyond Death Deck Builder Toolkit some months back and were able to play our first games together without building the exact same decks. You won’t be able to create great Aggro or Control decks out of the Deck Builder Toolkits, but it certainly allows you the opportunity to learn the mechanics of the game and build your collection when starting out.

One of the best M21 Planeswalker decks

Reviewed by on

This was one of my first Planeswalker decks I bought and have been making some changes to the deck since, focusing on playing creatures from your graveyard is a great way to overwhelm your your opponent and keeping the field going, combined with instants and sorceries to stave off any heavy hitters your opponent may play.
