Thermaltake TTeSports Ventus Gaming Mouse Review
     Wed, Dec 03 2014 | 2:24P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The selection of gaming peripherals continues to grow at a steady pace. Thermaltake, whose TTeSports product line is geared towards gamers, have brought several new mice to market in recent months. Today we have on hand for review ThermalTtake’s TTeSports Ventus gaming mouse. The VENTUS gaming mouse by Thermaltake comes with its own carrying case, stickers to add to your collection and an excellent 2 year warranty. At $49.99 USD this represents a great value, and a good addition to any causal gamer’s arsenal.

Corsair Gaming M65 RGB Review
     Wed, Dec 03 2014 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair M65 is a mouse on the heavier side of things that is dedicated to FPS gamers, we see the oversized sniper button returns that can drop your DPI from up to 8200 down to 50 (the Sniper button is at 400 default), this allows you to get that extra control and precision just when you need it.

Cooler Master Mizar Gaming Mouse Review
     Tue, Dec 02 2014 | 10:41A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end the CM Mizar is still ruling the roost of my desktop. My past favorite has taken a backseat for a bit to allow the new top dog to settle in. Although with my small hands I tend to prefer mice a little smaller than this one, I`m very happy with the fit and most happy with the feel of the mouse itself. The flat paint has a nice dry texture that remains dry even with long hours of use. The LED in the palm stays relatively cool with the pulsing mode keeping things from getting warm back there. I have found even with LEDs, in some mice, having a glowing logo can be pretty warm. The rubber grips on the side of the mouse are great for grip. They can get a little tacky with sweat but they dont become slippery; you still have full control of the mouse at the end of the long final boss fight. The mouse isn`t adjustable weight wise, beyond your own modifications, but it seems to be the right balance of light and heavy despite my first judgment out of the box. This truly is a great mouse for gaming, as it claims, and makes out quite nice because of that in all other activities."

Cougar 700K Keyboard: The Audacity of Functional Design
     Tue, Dec 02 2014 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A product's function is not solely reliant on the designer but also shaped by the intended audience. Problem arises when there is a disconnect between intention, marketing and reception; the result being a product that is supposed to perform well at the intended task but comes up short due to false assumptions on what the intended audience needs. I say …

COUGAR 700M Aluminum Gaming Mouse & Speed Mouse Pad
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 6:41P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Cougar is known for making exotic looking cases, performance chassis fans and the color “orange”. They’ve also been working on expanding to other product sectors over the last few years. Cougar sent us the 700M Gaming Mouse and the Mouse Pad Speed, their latest enthusiast gaming products, to take a look at. We’re going to see if Cougar has what it takes to survive in this tough market, or if they could end up on the ‘endangered products’ list.”

Beyond Earth
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 6:41P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For us, the game offers an interesting opportunity to discuss performance. Beyond Earth is definitely going to be more CPU-bound than the other games that we tend to use in our benchmark suite, but the fact that this game is new, shiny, and even has a Mantle implementation (AMD's custom API) makes interesting for at least a look at the current state of performance. Both NVIDIA and AMD sent have released drivers with specific optimization for Beyond Earth as well. This game is likely to be popular and it deserves the attention it gets.

Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Chroma @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Dec 01 2014 | 10:35A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year I had the chance to take a look at the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2014 with its new key switches. Razer hasnt exactly been sitting on their hands between then and now though. A few weeks ago I had the new Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Chroma come in. This is part of a whole series of products with full RGB lighting. In the past I have knocked Razer for going with green a color that only a few people are building their PCs in. With the Chroma line this shouldnt be an issue. Will this be enough to win people over? Lets find out."

Speedlink Phantom Hawk Flight Stick Review
     Sun, Nov 30 2014 | 11:58P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few weeks I’ve been diving into the world of flying games, with everything from War Thunder to Star Citizen: Arena Commander taking up my time. While mouse and keyboard do a pretty reasonable job for flight sims, it’s a far cry from the real deal and can be a little cumbersome at the best of times. Control pads such as the Xbox 360 controller are a nice middle ground, they provide dual analogue sticks that are great for arcade style flying, but they lack the controls needed for more sim-friendly flying. This leaves only one option, a flight stick and that’s exactly what I’ll be testing today. There are countless flight sticks out there to choose from, from several manufacturers such as MadCatz, Cyborg, Speedlink and more. It doesn’t take long to realise that if you want to get to grips with a realistic flight stick, you need to spend a fair amount of money. This is why I’ve chosen to put a budget friendly model through its paces, the Speedlink Phantom Hawk. It’s relatively cheap, with prices around £25 from most retailers, so I’m not expecting industry leading performance here. I am however eager to find out just how good it really is, despite its low price tag.

SteamOS on a Sub-$400 Gaming System @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Nov 30 2014 | 2:43P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier in the week we showed off the parts we are going to use for a dedicated gaming machine using the SteamOS. The goal of the system was to build a gaming rig that would be comparable to the cost of the current generation of console systems. Since both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One retail for $400.00, that`s what the budget for this gaming system was set at. Today we are going to take a look at the SteamOS and see what it`s all about!"

Tesoro Gandiva H1L Laser Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Nov 17 2014 | 1:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday i went to the local Nike store to pick a couple of new running shoes since it`s time to replace my old ones and it was then standing in front of a wall with almost 30 different models that i realized how hard it must be for people to choose the right pair between several different models. Of course this example isn`t just for shoes but pretty much everything else in the market including electronics and PC hardware and peripherals (besides to me running shoes are what power supplies and SSDs might be to someone else). This stands especially true for gaming peripherals since choosing the right ones to cover your needs is not the easiest thing since much like shoes we`re not talking about a product that you simply can`t base your decision on performance numbers. Although new Tesoro so far has a perfect track record in the gaming peripherals market and today with us we have their latest Gandiva H1L Laser Gaming Mouse."
