Breathe in, enhance calm.  Don’t get giddy, stop fidgeting…… Breathe. So on the 21st of August 2018, Microsoft have announced that they are planning on attending  Gamescom in Cologne, Germany – One of Europe’s biggest gaming trade fairs! The company are planning to run a live stream 3:30 bst Tuesday 21st August for their new features, news and most excitingly an announcement on NEW HARDWARE and accessories! It could be safe to say that it will most likely not be the next generation of console as that is planned for around 2020 (checks watch) which is still quite a little … Read More »

New and cool special designed controllers are all the rage!  Controllers that reflect your favourite game, a cool looking style that will make you the envy of all your friends, or just that one special controller that makes you and the controller one and makes you unstoppable! Last March 2017, Microsoft treated us to the launch of the Tech Series controllers – (see the previous article here) and boy we were excited! The Recon Tech and Patrol Tech controllers (above left and right) slick designs, laser etched insignias and textured shaped diamond grips were a feat to behold in design … Read More »

The Xbox One is finally getting a keyboard and mouse, how about that? To make prospects greater, the Hori Tactical Assault Commander Pro One is officially licensed by Microsoft, so it should be up to scratch. With the price to yet be decided, here’s some of the features: Key and sensitivity settings can be saved to user profiles, and can be adjusted using a mobile app. There are special features such as a ‘Snipe’ button, quick button, ADS lock, and much more. It has an ample design, which has an adjustable palm rest for addition comfort. And it has an LED-backlit … Read More »

It’s been known for a while that Microsoft have plans to bring mouse and keyboard to the Xbox One, with the question of when lingering instead of if. With the Minecraft Beta on the Xbox Insider program, it’s now that we are getting a taster of what mouse and keyboard play lead to. In comparison to the Windows PC cursor, the Xbox One cursor is rather on the large size, but don’t fret: it still works okay, as well as the scroll wheel! You can activate it via the options menu. Microsoft have repeatedly stressed that they are not introducing … Read More »

We’re big fans of LucidSound – we gave their first two headsets (the LS30 Wireless Universal Gaming Headset and the LS20 Amplified Universal Gaming Headset) four-and-a-half stars out of five apiece. LucidSound have produced some of the best-sounding headsets we’ve ever tested, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the brand new LS40 Wireless Surround Universal Gaming Headset to put it through its paces. We’re expecting great things! And we’re expecting great things later in 2017, too, when LucidSound starts to ship officially-licensed audio products for Xbox One and Xbox One S. We think this is great news – … 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 »

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 »
