Audio Technica BPHS-1 Review

Audio Technica BPHS-1 Review



On my next mini-review I’ll becovering one of the most important components for audio for a stream and that is headsets.

Headsets are key because it’s the main way for casters to interact with their online audience and skimping out on quality here can really set you back unless you have the right set up. While there is some really good entry level headsets on the market which people can use, I’ll go with probably the most common sets you’ll ever see at events for their mix of quality and affordability.

Magewell X4 HDMI Capture Pro Review

Magewell X4 HDMI Capture Pro Review:

The Magewell is an interesting bit of kit for anyone looking to increase their production from amateur level to semi pro while still looking for affordable solutions. This capture card is one of the best in the market for providing a clear but simple solution of HDMI camera inputs while only taking up a single PCI slot (albeit, an extended one). This is major because not only does it save PCI slot cards, it allows smaller PCs to turn into mini streaming rigs with much more functionality.

Stream Arcade Machines Article 1: DJ Max Technika

Stream Arcade Machines Article 1: DJ Max Technika

This article will be a series covering ways of successfully getting footage from an arcade machine. The first machine we are going to look at is the DJ Max Technika machine. While this machine is quite old and the franchise pretty much killed by Neowiz, it is still one of the most difficult machines to capture on if you don’t know what you are doing. The first thing to point out is that this machine has several layers of encryption. It has them for both visual and audio so you have to be careful where you decide to split cables.

Revolution 2018 Sign Ups is Live!

The sign ups for Revolution 2018 are now live!

For anyone not keeping track we have moved our venue from Stratford to slightly more North East South Woodford because of the complications with our old venue. Just a reminder that the event is currently hard capped at 220 to manage over-crowding for the time being.

Revolution Update 3

Revolution Update 3:


Venue situation:


Right due to the legal situation at the new EXP Venue (Which we was planning on holding Revolution 2018 at) being stonewalled for the time being, we have gone for a venue at the moment which is a bit further east than Stratford. We’ll be in an industrial area 11 minutes walk away from South Woodford station that’s also on the Central line. This is one of the few places in London that has enough space while also being allowed to run a gaming event (Yeah that’s a thing…) and wouldn’t mind moving their church service on a Sunday and could book the Friday afternoon. So this is our preliminary venue for the time being however if someone thing comes up for a better location within the next couple weeks we have the freedom to change.

Revolution 2018 Update 2


Revolution 2018 Blog Post 2

This is the second of Revolution blogs to help see what’s going on under the hood with the event.

Games Situation:

Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars!!!!! has been removed due to the issues with the PC version of the game. In Sakura Fight Festa we had reports of the game dropping inputs for players and this seems to be a universal issue with the game and doesn’t make the competition fun. Because of this, we’ve made the decision to remove the game and replace it with a couple more things.

Freedom Wars Review

Freedom Wars Review:

A collaboration between Dimps (Previously worked on games like Sonic Rush and Street Fighter 4), Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio and Shift (God Eater) that made a very frantic and but intense 3rd person action game. This was one of the most heavily marketed Playstation Vita games in Japan but got a very soft but noticeable push in the west. At only £20 this game is the most value you are going to get for a new game this year that pushes the Vita to its limits.
