How's it going?

I'm Lucas and I am an Asian guy who has been gaming  for over 15 years now.

Got my first PC in 1999 from my father and shared many fun moments with my brothers on 3D Pinball Space Cadet.. (I'm old, I know)

You may be thinking - “Why do you talk and review gaming stuff?”

It is because I found that, there were not many newbie-friendly (easy to understand), high-quality and genuine gaming blog and reviews..

And I would love for more people to enjoy the gaming experience and have more fun in their lives!

For me, I love gaming because..

1) It's super fun! With all the awesome graphics, effects and ever-improving tech, it's only going to get better.

2) I got to forge friendships (10 years and counting!) and even learnt more about my wife when we played our favorite game (League of Legends)

3) It's like life - Even in games, we still lose at times.. And I realize, actually, we have a choice, we can either give up or persevere and achieve the next level.


To Level Up the world of gaming by making it easy for newbies and pros alike to enjoy their gaming experience!

How We Create Content

All the content you find on this site has been planned and edited by me to ensure we meet the highest quality standards. I do use freelance writers to help me put articles together, and those which are not good, shall not pass.

In all seriousness, this is to ensure all information we publish is accurate and you can trust it to make better decisions to improve your gaming experience!

As much as possible, we try to get our hands on the items mentioned in this blog to get real-life experience with them, but it is not always possible so we also rely on extensive online feedback from real customers of these items.

I also spend a lot of time online and talk to my friends who are very experienced and up-to-date PC builders, to get to know all the items that come out and which ones may be of interest to you.

All in all, I want this site to be a place you can trust and that is not rigged by brand sponsorship so you can use our information to make the best decisions for yourself when it comes to improve your gaming experience.
