Good, not pricey

Reviewed by on

This wrist rest works well and is comfy. It doesn't slip on the desktop either. Just be aware that this is the shorter one -- there is another which is the width of a standard keyboard (including numpad), where this is enough to provide support in front of the main layout and arrow keys, which may be enough -- just be aware of which one you're getting.

Faulty Item

Reviewed by on

From opening, the main component, namely the coop is faulty. Once you push it down it only lasts 5 - 6 seconds. This makes the game unplayable as you can only get 2 - 3 chicks on top before it pops, then the person has to take all those chicks back so the game will never end. From watching YouTube vids, the timer is supposed to last at least 1:20 to 2:00 minutes long.

I returned the item, weeks later I got a replacement. Again, the thing only lasts 6 - 12 seconds before popping up. Either they gave me the same faulty item or I got another faulty one from the supplier?? Not sure, but not happy

Don't buy this

Reviewed by on

This might seem like a good option for a cheap wired PC controller instead of paying R700 for an official Xbox one controller but believe me, rather save up and buy the real one. I had two of these controllers fail to connect to be recognised by Windows 10 and I had to go through the frustrating process of returning both items. Stay away from this, if you have to go cheap rather spend like R100 and you'll proper have a better experience than I did.

The Black Nun

Reviewed by on

Quiet As A Nun from the book by Lady Antonia Fraser is one of the adaptations in this series and is also one of the most terrifying as it deals with an investigative reporter who returns to her Catholic school to investigate the death of her friend and to find out why the horrifying Black Nun appears just as someone is about to die.

The confrontation between Jemima Shore and the Black Nun is still rated as one of the scariest moments in a television series: it is amazing just how scary a creaking rocking chair can be.

Watch this with all the lights on!!

If I don't get a cappuccino soon, I'm gonna strangle somebody!

Reviewed by on

An undeserved flop on its' first release, this comedy - about ten years ahead of its' time for its' quirky humour - deals with an ex-cat burglar who is so sought after on the day of his release from jail, even his parole officer wants him to steal from a place. All he wants after ten years is a cappuccino coffee which he then (a) spills after his friend slams on the brakes too hard, (b) Sylvester Stallone's brother Frank's buddy shoots the next cup out of his hand, (c) the machine explodes when he tries to make himself another cup, (d) Andie MacDowell puts ethyl chloride in his next cup and finally, when the world is saved, he finally gets his coffee.

Word of warning to the wise: if you find yourself in Rome, don't get into a limousine if there is a South African in it already: trust me on that.

PopBoxZA Review: The Sims 4, Get Famous

Reviewed by on

Lights! Camera! Sims! Say hello to Del Sol Valley and stardom as your Sims can finally set off on the path to attaining fame….or infamy.

Get Famous is the latest expansion pack to join the burgeoning collection of the Sims 4 universe. Complete with snooty stars (we’re looking at you Judith Ward), the new Sims neighbourbood, known as Del Sol Valley, sports a replica of downtown Los Angeles and the famed Hollywood Hills.

sims3.jpgWhile the new neighbourhood adds a lot to the game and is simply gorgeous it is rather small and limited in terms of what you can interact with. For one, it would have been amazing to explore downtown LA…err Del Sol Valley.

The new acting career is an interactive one which means you get to go to the studio/set with your budding actor/actress. Your Sim will start off as a complete unknown and attempting to ace auditions which lead to starring in lowly TV commercials. The acting career is properly fleshed out as your Sim tries to first gain notoriety in TV ads before progressing to the silver screen and bigger things. Hair and make-up and smoozing with your co-stars and director is as important as knowing your lines in this career.

Sims05It’s not all about being in front of the camera either as this expansion pack also introduces media production skill which allows your Sim to become an “influencer”. A new computer set-up complete with camera and lights allows recorded videos to be edited before being uploaded and, hopefully, attaining internet fame or at least a handful of followeres. But you’ve got to stay on point though by researching trends and playing to your audience/follower’s interest.

A perk tree, specially focused on fame, allows you to move up the ranks and even develop new quirks such as a phobia of touching or becoming sad from not admiring “your fine self” in the mirror enough. There are also a few new aspirations including the ambition to become world famous or to be a master actor/actress. These aspirations automatically attribute specific traits to your Sims too such as the muser.

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 18.19.06There is also a ton of new build and buy mode objects and as well as new clothes, hairstyles, and accessories in create-a-sim. Some of the additions, read a rainbow-inspired hairdo, are way over the top. But it’s showbiz and we would expect nothing less.

What stands out most in the build and buy mode are the sets. From post-apocalyptic streets, to pirate ships, to street scenes, to giant green screens Get Famous has just about covered every genre.

Get Famous really does go above and beyond in delivering a more complete life experience for your Sims than ever before. This is easily the best expansion pack that the Sims team has produced and you are likely to sink many hours into exhausting it’s many avenues towards fame.

Low - Double Negative

Reviewed by on

Be warned - this album is a real tester, but brilliant nevertheless. If you know Low and have followed their career you will understand that their lowkey style has had some really slow and understated drone qualities, ambient and atmospheric textures and styling, and some drift-away goodness. On Double Negative they create moods by implementing chaos in a controlled manner; you may find yourself checking the setup of your turntable. Feedback and audible distortion is used in an innovative way to create definite textures and emotions. If all of this sounds confusing, get the record. It is simply brilliant and one of the very best of their career. Certainly one of the best of 2018.

Agnes Obel - Late Night Tales

Reviewed by on

Fans of Agnes welcome new material at any given time, and Late Night Tales is no exception. Although classed as a compilation the songs on offer on this double album (with the exception of a handful she wrote herself) have been carefully and judiciously given her unique and sensitive treatment. The songs are known intimately to Agnes and had been the subject of mixtapes in her youth. A fun album with a serious side, and one that does not have to be approached with caution - if you love Agnes this will be another chapter of appreciation and right up your alley. Supplied with a digital dowload code.
