As a launch title for the PlayStation 5 it doesn't get much better than a follow-up to one of the best superhero games of all time.

Is it game enough to fill the Gerudo Valley-sized gap in our collective souls? Can it quench the unquenchable heart that lies still, awaiting the return of Link in Breath of the Wild 2?

MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk Review - Our Road to Cyberpunk 2077 Continues

There are many reasons to build a new PC or to simply upgrade what you have - but for many of us there's 2077 reasons wrapped up into one. November's launch of Cyberpunk 2077. All of us at AusGamers are secretly putting together bits of silicon and RTX goodness in anticipation of that, and on that note Joab Gilroy has recently installed the latest MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk motherboard to see how it stacks up.

A snippet.
Back when I was growing up, when I was first getting into building PCs, the only way to get RGB in your machine was to steal it from the underbody kit of your street-racing older brother. Now it's everywhere. My keyboard lights up. My mouse lights up. My fans, my ram, my boys light up (note: boys is not code for balls). It's too much.

So, upon opening the box of the MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk, I was pleased to see the gunmetal black finish of the motherboard. The 'xenomorphic' colour scheme, to borrow an idea from Kosta. I mean, certainly the B550 Tomahawk lights up — there are two locations for RGB 'enhancement' — but turning it off was as simple as booting into MSI's Dragon Center software suite. It took me literally seconds, and had the added benefit of Dragon Center downloading all relevant driver updates for me at the same time.

And so I was left with a machine as black as my soul. And giant windows through which to see it.

Yeah I was doing some reading up while writing this and the older versions seem to be... not very good. But the latest one is awesome.
