Most gamers like to feel immersed in the games that they play. So they have a couple of options to choose from: Get a sound system installed, whether it be a soundbar or surround sound speakers. Or the other alternative is to whack on some headphones, eliminating the need to fiddle with troublesome speakers. The problem gamers have, is deciding which headsets to go for, considering there's a wide range of them, and for different budgets. Especially with the gradual increase in technology, upgrading your headset is essential if you want the best experience. Today we're reviewing the Venom Marauder ... Read More »
Bionik may not be a name you’re familiar with, unless you’re one of our many readers from across the big blue in America. Primarily producing peripherals and hardware accessories, Bionik are gaining pace with a growing inventory of products for the Xbox One. Having already released an Elite controller kit, we’re going to focus on their other two products – the QuickShot Custom Grips and Lynx Charging Cable. It’s a busy market to compete in for third party accessories. With plenty of options available, there’s always the fear of not feeling good enough when purchasing something that isn’t official. Both ... Read More »

The name normally says it all with Razer products and it's the same with the Gigantus. Yes, it's a mouse mat. If you're still using a square cut from the back of a Rice Krispies packet, the Razer Gigantus makes a compelling case for upgrade. Note: Whilst Microsoft has announced that mouse support is coming to Xbox One, it's not here yet. We're testing this mouse mat on PC - a platform that Xbox Play Anywhere is seeing us use more frequently. The Gigantus is a large gaming mouse mat designed with the gamers in mind. The packaging's a clue ... Read More »
If you're prodding around the seedier corners of the internet, populating spread sheets or writing a letter to Auntie Maude in Canada, a mouse is a mouse is a mouse. If you're engaging in Overwatch, League of Legends or World of Warcraft on PC, the right mouse is most certainly not just any old mouse. Enter the Razer Deathadder Elite, an eSports gaming mouse that boasts a resolution of 16,000 DPI and a tracking speed of 450 inches per second. But whatever those numbers mean, how does this mouse perform? Note: Whilst Microsoft has announced that mouse support is coming to ... Read More »
The Razer ManO'War 7.1 is a wired headset that boasts cross platform compatibility with PC, Mac, Xbox One and PS4 - though the 7.1 in the name only applies to PC. Virtual surround sound is only available when this wired headset is connected to a PC. The Man O'War 7.1 is one of the few Razer headsets offering truly stunning 7.1 surround sound. Boxed like any other Razer product, the box is adorned in green and black with the Razer logo on it, and a glossy photo of the Man O'War 7.1. Screaming 'premium', the box opens from the side and includes the traditional 'Congratulations, ... Read More »
War. What is it good for? Video games, apparently. And when these EA stablemates somewhat controversially went head to head in a crowded autumn release window, they were both winners. Critically, Titanfall 2 has the edge, but it was close. Less close has been the battle for sales, where by all accounts Titanfall 2 took an undeserved beating from Battlefield 1. So this battle of the controllers takes on a little extra frisson - who will win in this rematch? Actually, that's a bit misleading. Both the PDP Official Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 Wired Controllers are functionally identical - ... Read More »
Xbox One. The One Xbox for all your entertainment needs. Games, TV, movies, music... this is one box that can do it all - including Ultra-HD Blu-Ray playback at full 4K resolution and HDR. Ooh, look, pretty... Microsoft may have upset much of its audience at launch with a pitch that seemed to place gaming as a secondary feature. Yeah, that was never gonna fly - and the team have done a great job erasing much of the damage that disastrous launch caused. But even the hardcore gamer can't deny that the Xbox under their TV is pretty darn good ... Read More »
The unboxing of a new piece of Razer kit is an experience that borders on the religious, for some. The peripheral manufacturer is held in high regard in the PC gaming scene (and, increasingly, console owners, too, though this product is PC only. Check out the Razer Man O' War 7.1 Wireless Headset for - stereo only - Xbox One compatibility) and the distinctive black kit sporting the green Razer logo is a mark of quality. Every piece of Razer kit ships with a note from the company's founder, Min-Liang Tan, with the message "Congratulations, there is no turning back." ... Read More »
