If you are someone who loves to play games and who has a hard time getting off the couch, perhaps you should look into the Omni Kickstarter project by Virtuix. It may look odd from the outside, but its specialized shoe sole alongside of the tracking software allows you to walk, jump, crouch, strafe, or […]
Hooray! Valve has finally released the popular gaming platform, Steam, for Linux users. Right now it’s only supported under Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10, using the Unity, Gnome or KDE desktop environments. Steams says that more Linux distributions will be fully supported if/when time permits. Perhaps they will include other popular distributions such as LinuxMint (a fork of […]
I haven’t used a mouse pad in years because my 6yr old Logitech MX Revolution wireless mouse doesn’t need one. That said, all I’m doing is normal stuff while surfing and writing. Gamers are more high maintenance than I am. They require a mouse pad like the Sense Chrome Blue High Precision Gaming Mousepad from Hamburg Germany […]
The Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse gives you complete control in your favorite MMO games. It has 20 user-definable buttons, and you can download optional Logitech Gaming Software to access more intricate macro and scripting capabilities than the onboard macros can provide. Define the G600 G-Shift function to a button on the G600 doubles the […]
Can’t find a headset/mic combination you like? Do you have a favorite pair of headphones but no mic? Wouldn’t it be great to just add a microphone to your own headphones anytime you like? You may remember my own attempts at using a hot glue gun to attach a microphone to my own comfy headphones… […]
Most gamers would agree that having a left and right circle pad is necessary on a game controller. The problem is that Nintendo released the 3DS with only one circle pad. It works fine for most games but now game designers are making more complicated games that require a second circle pad. And that’s why […]
The R.A.T. 9 from Cyborg is a 2.4Ghz wireless, 5600 dpi wireless mouse that offers a crazy amount of customization for serious gamers. First of all, you get 3 interchangeable pinkie grips and 3 palm rests. The weight of the mouse can be customized by adding or removing one of the five 6-gram weight discs. […]
Arctic Cooling has released a series of audio gear under the label Arctic Sound, and I get the chance to try out three of their offerings- behind-the-ear Bluetooth headphones (P311), big ‘ear cans’ with microphone (P301), and a USB gamer headset (P531).
If you much prefer the over-the-head type of headset, skip this review. I’m one of those people. I wear glasses and I never found the behind-the-ear style compelling enough to try. But try I did.
I wouldn’t say that I’m a neat freak, but I like an uncluttered house. That’s not saying that my house isn’t cluttered, because it is… except for my basement. It’s been newly remodeled and is the role model for the rest of the house. If you need a kick start to cleaning up some the […]
As a mobile gadget freak, I don’t go anywhere without my iPhone. Now XBox fans don’t have to leave their favorite console behind when they travel. They can use the GAEMS Suitcase, which turns any XBox into a portable (sorta) gaming station. It’s not just a carrying case, the suitcase houses a 15-inch 720p LCD […]
When it comes to headsets, I’m really picky. In 2004 when I started playing on-line co-op games with my younger brothers in-law, I shopped around for various stereo headsets with microphones for gaming. They were all either too uncomfortable, or had poor outgoing audio. Eventually, I took drastic measures and made my own, and I’ve […]
