I've been a long-time user of membrane keyboards, and I've never really made the switch to mechanical keyboards until very recently. And the main reason behind that was because I felt like the cost outweighed the benefits. Mechanical keyboards tend to cost a heck of a lot more than regular membrane keyboards, and a large reason for that was because there was one company who held the patent for mechanical keyboard switches - Cherry. And for a good while, they... Read more

It's finally happened, you guys! First, we had RGB keyboards and mice. Then the world got a little crazy and started putting RGB lights on headphones. And then, if that wasn't enough, even motherboards have RGB lights now. But GAMDIAS took a look at all of those and said "Hold my beer."
Introducing the GAMDIAS Achilles P1 and M1, RGB gaming chairs.

I've always been intrigued by Wonder Woman. I can't say I've read a lot of standalone Wonder Woman stories but I've always enjoyed her within the context of the Justice League. In DC's Trinity, I've always found Wonder Woman to be the most interesting, and not because her backstory has been retconned a dozen times. She's way more brutal than either Batman or Superman, and she isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. She was definitely their bruiser, more than... Read more

Titanfall 2 is one of the funner games I've played this year. It is a sci-fi first person shooter with a fantastic campaign. The full review is still probably going to take a few days (maybe weeks, if I'm being honest), but I can easily say that it's well worth your money.
There's an achievement in the game that I'm particularly proud of being able to get. It's called "Becomes the Master."
It involves clocking in less than 33.60 seconds in the... Read more

Lost Castle is an indie game developed by Hunter Studios and published by indie game publisher, Another Indie. Another Indie usually takes games developed in the east and brings them to the west and vice versa. That's their whole business model.
Today, let's talk about Lost Castle specifically.
It's a roguelike action RPG, where you resurrect over and over and get stronger over time should your performance be good enough to earn enough currency (soul) to level your character up per run.

If you've seen my posts before or if you know me personally, you'll know that while I'm not the biggest toy collector in the world, I've bought my fair share. In recent years, the appeal of owning and buying and customizing and photographing toys has waned for me. Don't get me wrong, I still think they're awesome and would love to own more toys, but only if toy collecting didn't come with a bunch of the negatives.
I don't know if... Read more

You know what the dream for laptop gamers is? It's to have a laptop that comes close to PC performance. We all knew it was coming with tech getting better, faster, and smaller all the time. We just didn't know when.
That is, until the Nvidia GTX 1080. Enter the Razer Blade Pro - as close to a high end gaming PC you can get in a laptop form factor under an inch thick.
The Razer Blade Pro packs an Intel i7... Read more

Ever heard of a gaming company called Gamdias? Well, don't beat yourself up if you haven't. But it would be your fault to not check them out now that you have. They're probably the best gaming peripheral company that you've never heard before. Linus actually thinks they're innovative enough to have their own niche in the world.
They've come out with some pretty interesting stuff. I'm actually kinda sad that I've never caught wind of them before. Their Hermes Ultimate keyboards... Read more

Check out the new Razer Kraken V2s, you guys. They look glorious.
The new Razer Krakens feature larger 50mm custom-tuned drivers for game sounds and communication balance, a unibody frame (this is a plus!), and redesigned ergonomics.
The 50mm drivers are larger than any of those found in previous Krakens, which they claim should give a wider frequency range, improving balance between in-game audio and communications.

The PlayStation VR is about to launch in a few days. And what's weighing on the mind of everyone who has pre-ordered a PSVR and those on the fence about buying one is if there will be enough software to support the device. it's always a question of whether there will be enough killer apps on a device before it becomes viable. While I'm not 100% sure about which game will be the game for PSVR, I do know that some... Read more

The best controller, at least for me, is the Dualshock 4. It just fits my hands just right. So even on PC games, I always used the Dualshock 4. Unfortunately, Sony never really officially supported the DS4 for Steam games. And why would they? It's not their platform, after all.
When the official USB wireless dongle for the Dualshock 4 was announced, I was stoked! Could this be it!? Could this be Sony officially supporting the Dualshock 4 on the PC?... Read more

Quick - what's one of the best things about putting together a PC? If you said "the colorful lights," then you'd be right. My PC build is named Kobalt, and I made sure to outfit him with all blue LEDs. I even thought of picking up some LED strips to illuminate the inside of the case, too. Good thing I like blue lights, though, because I'm stuck with them. If only there was a way I could change the LED... Read more

Right now, the mouse I use is the Logitech G502 Proteus. This is only because I had to give up my 2013 Razer DeathAdder because of the somewhat prevalent double clicking issue. It was the only thing (well 1 of 2 things - more on that later) that kept it from the perfect gaming mouse. And now, the best gaming mouse is getting a major upgrade.
Razer just announced the Razer DeathAdder Elite.

I've been getting hit by ads for Paladins almost everywhere I go. I got curious and looked it up. First thing I noticed is that the character designs are actually quite similar to Overwatch, in both the character archetype and the skills. And then a few days later, Hi-Rez Studios states that Paladins https://www.viagrasansordonnancefr.com/viagra-ou-cialis/ is NOT an Overwatch clone. Because of all of that drama, I decided to give Paladins a try and see it for myself.
According to Hi-Rez studios... Read more
