Toshiba Exceria Pro N502 SD Card Review
     Mon, Oct 15 2018 | 2:14P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Exceria Pro N502 has easily got to the first place in terms of performance versus the previously tested cards; the latest UHS-II standard does make possible up to 8K video recording and the safe operating conditions vary from -20 to 85 degrees Celsius (without condensation). As we have seen with other Toshiba products, the N502 is x-ray proof, so you do not have to worry about scans at the airport security checkpoints."

Assassin's Creed Origins Full Experience
     Mon, Oct 15 2018 | 2:13P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At the end of it, is Assassin's Creed Origins, with its DLC, worth playing? I think it is. I found it overall to be quite fun, but I feel like this complete experience might be one best gotten on sale (like I did). The base game is fun and enjoyable, but does have some annoyances to it (the lock-on camera, at times confusing narrative, and the non-Trireme Aya gameplay). The Hidden Ones DLC gives a good look at the start of the Assassin Brotherhood precursor, and some pains it suffered as it started. The Curse of the Pharaohs is more about Egypt, and its religion, so while I did have fun with it, it does not really seem to build onto the Assassin's Creed story. It builds onto the game and is an enjoyable exploration of Egyptian mythology, but otherwise does nothing more than maybe adding another First Civilization artifact to the world."
