ROCCAT KIRO Gaming Mouse
     Thu, May 05 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”In the end, the mouse is a great ambidextrous mouse! However, I don't know many people who swap between left and right handed to play or work. If you do, great, this mouse is truly for you. For the rest of us, unfortunately, you're going to be left with extra pieces that you'll never use, buttons you've paid for and won't use, and a slightly empty feeling for your dominant hand. I see how the product is great for the market from the perspective of ROCCAT. It is a mouse that sells to both handed people. Seems like a win versus paying for additional molds for specific right or left handed shapes. I understand that. I just don't prefer it. I feel like I could save my pennies by not purchasing the extra stuff I won't/can't use. However, that part aside the mouse is a functional experience that isn't bad. The mouse is a pretty good mouse. The quality is sound (although I'm disappointed the cable isn't braided), there is lighting options to match my themes, and I get my forward/back buttons for email and melee smashing. This mouse definitely stands out from the normal "mouse" today, since more and more they are just slight variations. Unfortunately, I don't think what makes it stand out (the ambidextrous features) makes me want it any more than any other mouse. It does have a great price point -- so it's really hard to argue this mouse as much less than good!”

Corsair Gaming M65 Pro RGB Optical Mouse Review
     Sat, Apr 30 2016 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair M65 is one of the most popular gaming mice on the market today, but as popular as it may be, Corsair thinks they can make it even better! We’ve already seen a few models of the M65 here at eTeknix, such as the old Vengeance M65, the tweaked RGB version and now the biggest change, the removal of the old laser sensor, and in goes the new high-end 12K DPI optical sensor.

Corsair Gaming K70 Rapidfire RGB Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2016 | 10:56A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ready to take your gaming seriously? We’ve got the (mostly) new Corsair Gaming K70 Rapidfire RGB in the eTeknix office today, and while you may be familiar with the K70 part, the keyboard now features the all-new and very much improved Cherry MX Speed switches! But what are MX Speed switches? They use the same underlying format as the extremely popular and lightning fast MX Red switches, but with a 40% reduction in actuation distance, meaning they’re even faster than ever before, making them the shortest response mechanical switches on the market today.

Ashes of the Singularity
     Wed, Apr 27 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Now is the time to consider if it is worth joining the Post Human Coalition, or perhaps look to a different future. Honestly, it is hard for me to decide. Ashes of the Singularity is definitely fun, but it does have some issues that can take too much time to really work around. For now I think my recommendation will be that if you really want it, go for it, but there is nothing wrong with waiting for a sale. In fact waiting is not a horrible idea to begin with as there are plans to add and improve several features throughout the course of the year. If you are not sure, go ahead and wait and see how it develops with a major patch or two, but if you just love RTS games, go ahead. The graphics look good, as they should for an RTS, and with the possible requirement of turning off asynchronous compute, it runs fairly well. The story, from what I have seen, is nothing too special, but provides a backstory to the two factions and a purpose to the campaign. The gameplay has some parts to it that could be better polished (the Army system specifically) but is still a good RTS, if you can adapt to work within the flaws. Of course, you might not be as vexed by them as I am either. Not a bad experience, and with some time it can definitely come to stand as a good example of the genre. For now though, it stands as a good example of some new technologies, and I am looking forward to what comes from it.”

DXRacer King Series (OH/KX28/NB) PC Gaming Chair Review
     Tue, Apr 26 2016 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DXRacer "King Series" is a chair catering to the larger PC gamer in the audience. The body ergonomics of persons outside of the 80th percentile of body size type are way different than the dimensions needed for typical sized persons. Being a king sized person myself (6'8", 260lbs), I am very sensitive to ergonomics in seating technology. Does the

Intel C236 Gaming?
     Tue, Apr 19 2016 | 4:43P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You might have noticed, that in the past few months, motherboard vendors have come up with a variety of boards, which are based on the C236 chipset from Intel. This is actually a server chipset which also supports Xeon processors and ECC memory, but still the motherboard makers have a selection of boards in their portfolios which target gamers and enthusiasts. Since we’re about to come up with a review of such a C236 based motherboard, we thought it might be informative and helpful to first publish an article on what are the differences between C236 and Z170 chipset.

Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Apr 17 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a few weeks ago Cooler Master introduced their new Masterkeys Pro L and S keyboards. I spent a bunch of time with the L aka the full sized model but at that time I didn’t have the chance to check out the Masterkeys Pro S. Well after our review they were quick to get an S out to me. A lot of the features of the Pro L are the same on the smaller S but there are a few differences. So today I’m going to take a look at the Masterkeys pro S and show you guys what is different. This won’t be as in depth of a review as the original, but if you check out our original review HERE and then check this out you should have a good idea of what the new Masterkeys Pro’s are all about and if they are for you.

Tobii's EyeX eye-tracking controller

Tobii's EyeX eye-tracking controller promises to add more interactivity to some games by letting players take over certain in-game actions using nothing but the direction of their gaze. We spent some eyes-on time with the EyeX to see how it works.

review on Hitman
     Fri, Apr 15 2016 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Now for the question; is it worth stepping into Agent 47's shoes? I have been enjoying the game thus far and am comfortable recommending it to those that enjoy this style of action game. Whether someone should purchase it now or wait until more or all of the missions are available, I will not offer an opinion. I have enjoyed what I have access to right now and am looking forward to what else is coming, but if you want to wait to have it all at once, go right ahead. The graphics look good but the performance could be better, at least for me and my CPU. I am just going to skip over the story here, except to say it is building for more. The gameplay is fun and interesting, as it encourages exploration within the game, and possibly outside of it. Go ahead and look at videos of someone completing levels, because they might do something you did not think of, and that could lead you to new avenues of assassination. No two people are necessarily going to play any part of this game the same way.”

HTC Vive VR Kit Hands On: Room Scale Virtual Reality Has Arrived
     Thu, Apr 14 2016 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung’s VR Gear has been on the market for quite some time. One of the most talked about VR products of the last few years, the Oculus Rift, just recently begun shipping. And Sony is readying its headset for a Q4 release. Today though, it’s HTC and Valve’s turn, as retail-ready HTC Vive kits begin to roll out to those that pre-ordered the device. We have had the privilege to use the HTC Vive at multiple stages throughout its development cycle, and to this point, even though the hardware and software weren’t quite finished, we believe it offered the most compelling VR experiences yet. We just got our hands on a final, shipping version of the HTC Vive, however, and want to give you our initial impressions. What you’re going to see on the pages ahead is indicative of what consumers that have pre-ordered the HTC Vive will receive...
