SteelSeries Stratus

So, I am moving up in the world, I am upgrading to an iPad air from my old iPad2. Better graphics, better weight, better gaming just to name a few advantages. Speaking of gaming, one area that the iOS devices lack in the gaming arena is a decent hand-held game controller. The SteelSeries Stratus hopes [...]

Screen Shot 2013-12-18 at 3.50.34 PM

Anyone??? I am so not the gamer... But I use to love playing X-Wing vs TIE Fighter for hours on end, back in the day, when the only HD you had was real life, hard drives were in single digit megabytes and connectivity was two modems barely holding onto each other over phone lines. For [...]

roccat-ryos-1

When it comes to PC gaming, one of the sounds you hate to hear is that "beep!" when you've pressed down too many keys. This is due to most average keyboards having a set number of keys allowed to be pressed at the same time. The way to combat this is to pick up a [...]

drakonia-black-1

I've considered myself a PC gamer since high school, yet I never really have spent the money on high-end gaming equipment. Since I was doing fine with my plain-o mouse, I just never saw the need. Plus, the cost of many gaming accessories are out of my budget. When I was offered to review the [...]

ipega-controller-1

I find it difficult to play games on my phone with on-screen joysticks and buttons. My fingers move around on the screen, and I start pressing the wrong button or moving the wrong direction. Since I grew up with a physical controller in my hand, perhaps that is why I just can't get the knack [...]

brickjoystick

Last week I posted a review of the Invisible Gamepad Kickstarter project, which are easy to use stick-on gamepads for smartphones and tablets. I found that the Invisible Gamepad worked better than other stick-on joysticks that I've tried in the past (see related reviews at the bottom of this post), but it still lacked a [...]

invisible-gamepad-3

If you enjoy playing action games on your smartphone or tablet, you have probably run into a problem that is shared by all games that use virtual on-screen controls. On-screen touch controls lack the tactile feedback that is needed for fast paced gaming. When you're surrounded by a bunch of bad guys and your only way [...]

steelseries-apex-1

Style is not something that I think of when thinking of a keyboard. However, when I noticed the SteelSeries APEX gaming keyboard while browsing the web recently, that is exactly what I thought - stylish. There are five illumination zones that can each be customized from 16.8 million colors, and the layout of the keyboard [...]

I enjoy playing games on my iPad, but when it comes to action style games, I miss not having physical controls. Virtual controls are adequate for some games, but for others, they just don't cut it. That's why I was excited to accept an offer to review the New Potato Technologies Foosball table. This device turns [...]
