Bloody B945 Light Strike Optical Left Hand Gaming Keyboard.
     Tue, Jun 26 2018 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"First, let me say that having the number pad on the left side of the keyboard really gives you a lot of added space on the right side for mouse travel. When gaming in the past, my mouse became cramped and I was having to adjust quite a bit. While gaming with the B945 keyboard playing PlayerUnknown's Battleground, I had very little issues using the full reach of the mouse to spin and aim. It was actually quite pleasing having all of that space."

Vampyr Review: Bloody Rare
     Tue, Jun 26 2018 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Vampyr is a refreshingly rare game with a clever story and amazing in-depth social mechanics, but doesn't offer much long-term replayability."

Middle-earth: Shadow of War
     Mon, Jun 25 2018 | 3:28P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Now that I have gone through not only the base game but also both story expansions, how does the full experience stack up? Not as well as I wish it would. The base game is still pretty good on its own (though I hope the Act IV changes coming in July address the issues it has), but these two story expansions are not doing that much for me. Both are fun with The Blade of Galadriel nicely continuing the story of the base game and The Desolation of Mordor offering some fun gameplay, but they are both short (for a single playthrough at least). While I can recommend the story expansions for the fun they offer, I would also recommend waiting for a sale on the individual DLC or either Expansion Pass that is offered. The base game too might not be worth the full price, so if you are interested, it may be best you wait for a sale.”

Havit's HV-KB390L low-profile mechanical keyboard
     Wed, Jun 20 2018 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Havit's HV-KB390L low-profile mechanical keyboard comes from a company you may not have heard of, but its low-profile chassis and short-stroke switches make this a board worth paying attention to for the space-conscious enthusiast. We put the HV-KB390L to the test to see whether it offers typing bliss to low-profile keyboard fans.

MSI Infinite X Gaming Desktop Review
     Tue, Jun 19 2018 | 12:05P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Choosing your next PC can be a rather daunting process. Do you go with a pre-built or build your own? Do you go with a small form factor or a full size? Today I'll be taking a look at MSI's Infinite X Gaming Desktop which should be a strong contender in the pre-built market. It's a full sized, gaming powerhouse with an impressive aesthetic to match.

Posted by: STAFF

TEAMGROUP has designed this kit to work in conjunction with ASUS TUF GAMING motherboards, marrying up with the overall theme that these boards offer.

Honor 10 Review – the £399 flagship
     Tue, Jun 05 2018 | 11:36A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of the Huawei P20 launch, today we assess the Honor 10. I mention Huawei as you may not know that Honor is actually a sub-brand of Huawei. It is no surprise, then, that the Honor 10 looks and feels very similar to the P20. However, at just £399, Honor’s latest flagship comes with a price that can appeal to a much wider market. Just how good is it?

nerdytec Couchmaster Cycon Ergonomic tech seating
     Sun, May 27 2018 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a frequent couch keyboard, mouse and laptop user I always put my devices on my lap or a couch cushion. A lap or couch cushion is not the most ergonomic solution but readily available. The nerdytec COUCHMASTER Cycon retails for $149.00. It is an intriguing lap desk concept to solve the ergonomics of marathon computer and gaming sessions.

PC gaming lives at the cutting edge
     Fri, May 25 2018 | 2:31P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC gaming lives at the cutting edge, but let’s face it, sometimes it’s nice to kick back on the couch to enjoy a game. Not long ago, we were stuck with controllers or draping long wires across our floors, but as technology has advanced, those compromises are becoming a thing of the past. Today, we’re looking at the latest combo from Corsair with the K63 Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and their custom-fit Lapboard. Are the days of balancing keyboards on our legs and mousing from couch cushions finally behind us? Let’s find out.

Tesoro Zone Evolution Gaming Chair
     Tue, May 22 2018 | 1:40P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With designs inspired by automotive racing seats, gaming chairs have become one of the next big items to add to your setup. With designs and models from many of the names and brands we have all come to know, gaming chairs seem to be here to stay. We have taken a look at a few chairs in the past few months, and today we are back with a model from Tesoro. The Tesoro Zone Evolution is an ergonomically designed gaming chair with a larger seating area and a good number of features. Grab a seat and follow along as we take a look at the Zone Evolution."

Arozzi Vernazza Gaming Chair
     Tue, May 15 2018 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We try out one of Arozzi's top gaming chair models. The Vernazza offers good comfort and support for users who weigh up to 145 kg. It is no larger than your average chair, but has wide seating and backrest areas even though it adheres to a classic bucket seat design.

E-Win Flash XL Gaming Chair Review
     Tue, May 15 2018 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EWin Flash XL office gaming chair has a weight capacity of 500 pounds, and it has steel frame construction with an aluminum base with 5 caster wheels. Not only will the Flash XL handle your weight, but handle your height as well. I am very tall, and I can actually make use of the head rest built into the Flash XL gaming chair. I do not even need to raise the chair at all for my legs to be comfortable and feet sit planted flat on the floor. EWin has made a great looking gaming chair, but how well does it function, and how comfortable is it for hours of gaming?
