Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions

Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions is an odd concoction of mission-based racing that puts you in two sets of shoes - as both uniformed and undercover police officers. The game's premise, coupled with challenging and diverse scenarios, is more than enough to keep the customer satisfied.

Wreckless's up-front sleek interface and cool options are matched by challenging missions, including smashing fleeing cars to a halt, capturing counterfeit cash, and saving the delivery of volatile cargo. Progression is skill-based, slow and uneven; some missions are a breeze, others painstakingly difficult and requiring controller-flinging replays.

The game's biggest failing is the occasional funky physics as some cars bounce uncontrollably after what should have been an otherwise safe landing from a routine jump. As for the good-cop/bad-cop scenarios, don't expect big plot twists or engrossing story tangents; it's basically a way to tie the diverse missions and cars together. The onscreen visuals do a decent job of conveying the hit-and-run carnage and come complete with arresting replay footage. Solid audio effects round out the aesthetic package, but the obnoxious music score is best left silent.

Wreckless is a solid offering for gamers on the prowl for action-seasoned driving. If you liked Driver and Spy Hunter, make Wreckless your next challenge.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
