Rise of the Tomb Raider PC Game analysis
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2013, the Tomb Raider reboot impressed us all on the PC side with its graphical features- the game even went on to become one of our ‘go to‘ benchmarks for GPU reviews. Now, after a brief stint as a Xbox exclusive, the sequel ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ has landed on the PC but does the port live up to the same standard as the original? Let’s find out!

Input Club Infinity ErgoDox Ergonomic Keyboard Kit @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Feb 08 2016 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost exactly one year ago I sat down and took a look at the original Massdrop ErgoDox kit. A few months after that Massdrop in combination with what would later be called Input Club announced that they had been working on a completely new designed called the Infinity ErgoDox. It’s important to note that the original ErgoDox was originally designed by Dominic Beauchamp aka Dox. Later the Geekhack and Deskthority keyboard community’s worked with Massdrop to provide a full kit. The ErgoDox isn’t exclusive to Massdrop but the specific design that I reviewed last year was. There are actually multiple places where you can put together your own parts or now even buy a pre-built model as well. The Infinity ErgoDox though is a new design based on the original but taking into account what they learned from the 60% Infinity Keyboard that Massdrop worked on with Input Club. The overall shape is the same but the Infinity ErgoDox uses a proper backplate and makes big steps forward with things like USB 3.0, NKRO, an LED screen, backlighting, and stabilizers. So today I’m going to dig into the new kit and see what it is all about, have a little fun building it all, then test out the new design and see how it compares to the original.

G910 Orion Spark
     Sat, Feb 06 2016 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Logitech continues its push and re-entry into the gaming peripherals market in 2016, this time adding another keyboard under the Orion brand to the mix. The Logitech G G810 Orion Spectrum is, as the name implies, an RGB mechanical keyboard using the company's proprietary Romer-G switches. But despite the similarity in model numbers to the G910 Orion Spark announced in late 2014, the G810 has some significant design and functionality changes. This new offering is cleaner, less faceted (both in key caps and design) but comes much closer to the feel and function than the tenkeyless G410 from last year. Let's take a look at how the G810 changes things up for Logitech G.

Cooler Master Quick Fire XTi Review
     Wed, Feb 03 2016 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Available with Cherry MX switches in Red, Blue or Brown that are set in a minimalistic, heavy duty body the Quick Fire XTi offers more than meets the eye, considering it is a driverless plug & play keyboard. The customisable per-key lighting uses just the red/blue LEDs to create a palette of 35 colours, on top of that, there is an on-board macro recording feature too which can be saved across 4 profiles.
