Review – The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Gaming
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD starts with a nice introduction. It talks about a legendary hero in a cinematic retelling story that sealed away evil. If compared to other titles in the series, this comes with different look. The game is gorgeous and player starts off asleep on top of a tower overlooking the ocean.

Review: Jawbone Up3 – Not worth the high price without a display

Technology
The Jawbone Up3 is priced tagged $179.99 and this seems too expensive for many if the features are compared to other products in the same range. There is no on-band display on it and this is the biggest drawback. Each time user need to check phone for the stats. Apart from this drawback, users can't wear the Jawbone Up3 while swimming. The band clasp is a bit difficult to adjust and the heart rate is also limited to the resting heart rate and sleep tracking at night. Well, there are some good aspects too about the fitness band.

Review: Canon Pixma MG5620 – economical all-in-one inkjet printer

The best part of Canon Pixma MG5620 is its excellent output quality. The set-up is easy too and the printer connects with a wireless network, which means it can connect with mobile phones and tablets too. The gadget comes with auto-duplexer for double-sided prints. One of the most expensive aspects of it is that its ink comes expensive. If the printer is used for photo printing, you may run out of ink frequently. There are better options in the market at the same price range. Probably, for many, the high cost may cut down the overall value. Presently it is being retailed at just under $80 in the US.

Review – Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin

Gaming
The Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is an incredibly rewarding sequel, I must say. It is massive and very smart at the same time. It is equipped with tense encounters, deep systems and also enough clever multiplayer along with New Game Plus elements. However, among all the good things to adhere about it, not all the tweaks and additions worked the best for me even though it is having great enemies and levels as well to explore and fight with. Apart from wrapping up the original game, the new iteration does more added with DLC for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It has taken everything from the original version and in a good and workable way like the fantastic combat, the intriguing world and rewarding challenge. The improved adjustments are much appreciated. The noticeable...
