Namco Bandai have recently been showing a lot of love to their North American fan base and the new Tales of Symphonia Chronicles release on the PlayStation 3 is a great example of that. The release includes both Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World for $39.99 on a single disc. These games are also offered individually on the PSN for $19.99 each. There is also a Collector’s Edition for $99.99 (whose features I discuss later) though I am not sure if much stock for it is still available.

It was recently announced that the new Transformers Universe, a “free to play” massive multiplayer online role-playing game, is getting released over the summer, which is going to be around the same time that the Transformers 4 film is set to be released. It was initially set to be released in 2012, but has been delayed multiple times for unknown reasons.

Anybody who plays competitive FPS games for long enough will start looking for ways to get the edge up on their competition. Whether it’s tweaking the in-game settings for hours, trying to optimize an Internet connection, looking up strategies online or physically modifying controllers the end-goal is the same — upping your score just a bit so you feel less depressed about being beaten so handily by kids with faster reflexes than you.  Kontrol Freek is the foremost company that caters to gamers looking for that extra edge with non-permanent controller modifications like skins and control stick extensions.  Does their latest offering for the PS4 deliver on all fronts, or does it barely hold the line? Find out just how freek-y we found our time with the Phantoms after the jump.

NuGuard KXs Screen Protector for iPhone 4/5

January 14th, 2014 by

KXs_iphone4Manufacturer: Newer Technology
Current Retail Price: $9.99 (“Case Friendly” 4/4S) / $10.79 (Full Size 4/4S)

Let’s face it, there are thousands of kinds of screen protectors for smartphones these days.  I personally have paid everywhere from about $2.00 to $30.00 for screen protectors of varying quality for my iPhone over the years.  Not all screen protectors are made equal either, each one seems to tout a different feature: anti-glare, extra clarity, multiple Hs of hardness, even extra-oleophobic surfaces.  I even ordered “Diamond” screen protectors once thinking that they would be “tough like a diamond” and when they arrived they were so full of sparkles that they considerably obstructed the iPhone screen.  To compliment their NuGuard KX line of slimmer protective iPhone cases (that we quite liked) NewerTech recently launched the NuGuard KXs line of screen protectors for the iPad, iPhone, and even Galaxy S4.  These screen protectors (or “screen armour”) claim to go a step further in protecting your costly devices’ screens by adding a moderate level of impact absorption into the mix.  Does the NuGuard KXs follow in the footsteps of its namesake or does it just blend in with the screen protecting masses?  Read on to find out how impactful our impression is of this new screen protection contender.
