Shrek

Shrek is a graphical achievement with gorgeously rendered interior and exterior textures, stunning real-time lighting, and awesome shadow effects. The sprawling, fairy-tale inspired worlds are fantastically designed and detailed, and by boasting emotionally expressive features and a ridiculous amount of polygons, Shrek himself is a visual marvel.

The thing is, once you've taken your jaw off the floor, you're stuck with a dull and frustrating game that's too difficult for younger players and not engaging enough to hook older gamers. Shrek's 37 missions, which almost always consist of herding or punting characters to certain locations, start to get old by the 10th one. The already too tricky platform hopping becomes even more aggravating due to a swaying camera that you'll have to rotate manually every few seconds to see where you're going. The music is standard fare, while the voice acting is humorous. Besides the thrill of seeing Shrek's wondrous world so beautifully presented, there's not much in the way of gameplay to keep the game interesting.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
