Movo VSM-7 XLR Condenser Microphone Review

The Movo VSM-7 is an interesting mic for Bradford. At just $124.95, the microphone is relatively inexpensive for XLR Condenser mics. However, while he's really enjoyed the sound the mic itself can produce, there are a few issues we encountered with build quality that did have me concerned overall. However, the question remains: do they stop the mic from being a decent entry-level XLR for the money?

Days Gone PC Review - Not So MMO

t's been a little over two years since the last time I took Deacon St. John for a joyride in the freaker filled mountains of a post Zombie-apocalyptic Oregon.

Not So MMO: Hood: Outlaws & Legends Review

Hood Outlaws & Legends can be a fun game. Can be is the operative phrase here, as the "fun factor" is heavily dependent on a number of variables, most important being simply who you are playing with.

Blade & Soul: Revolution Review - A 'Hands-Off' Approach for Mobile MMORPG Gamers

Revenge. Danger. Epic battles.
