Urban Empire Review

Post Image

Share. This city-builder is more about politics than plopping down buildings. By Leif Johnson There’s a case to be made that Urban Empire is a perfect city sim for our times.

Post Image

Share. Mid-range monitor with gaming presets galore. By Molly McLaughlin The Viewsonic XG2401 (See it on Amazon) is the company’s mid-range 24″ gaming monitor and it costs a bit more than the base models due to the fact that it has FreeSync adaptive refresh rate technology, which is all the rage these days.
