No matter how much gaming seems to shift to mobile devices these days, there will always be a need for bigger, faster, stronger processing to push the video game experience to new levels. Dell and Alienware have been on the forefront of these devices for some time now, and they’re hitting the hardcore gamers as well as budget-conscious buyers with…
I don’t normally cover video games for Gear Diary; they just aren’t on my radar. But this week we received a pitch for a video game that made me so angry, I’m pretty sure my women’s studies degree became sentient, broke out of the frame in my office, and is currently trying to escape the building to protest. I’m glad…
It’s not often that a monitor really piques my interest, but the Dell UltraSharp 38 Curved Monitor has done just that. The company’s first 37.5 ultrawide curved screen monitor will be perfect for anyone who needs a lot of screen room while using multiple windows.
This is a sponsored post on behalf of Lenovo. All opinions are mine. Judie reviewed the Android version of the Lenovo Yoga Book last month and loved it.

What makes a great gaming headset? Beyond sound quality and an excellent microphone, what else would you like to see? I think that a proper gaming headset should be light enough to wear for hours, durable and comfortable, but I also think that they should offer usage options. The Fnatic Gear TMA-2 Duel Modular Gaming Headset does just that.

MAINGEAR’s VYBE Tuned for VR starts at $999.
The idea of owning a capable gaming system that isn’t extremely expensive or overly large may seem like a pipe dream, but the Alienware Alpha R2 defies the typical gaming desktop stereotype. At ~7.7″ square by ~2.2″ tall and with a starting weight of 4 pounds (including power brick), the Alpha R2 is portable, affordable, and best of all capable.
After just reviewing Creative’s Sound BlasterX H5 Gaming Headset last year, they sent over the update to those, in the BlasterX H7s, continuing their goal of being the best gaming headset on the market today! There are a lot of similarities in the H7s that are in the H5s from Creative, from the brushed metal down to the overall black design of the headset….
I love quirky fun games with a great sense of humor, such as “Frayed Knights” or “Legend of Dungeon”. The developer of the latter game, Robot Loves Kitty, has launched a crowd-funding campaign for their next game Upsilon Circuit: Death is Forever and Viewers Rule! Here is what the company says about this unique game: “Upsilon Circuit is a Video…
As a digital gaming early adopter nearly 15 years ago, who was a loyal Steam user even before Half Life 2 popularized the service, and a beta participant in the launch of ‘Good Old Games’, I have a particular fondness for both Steam and GoG. This extends to owning copies of many games on both sites, so when GoG announced…

At the world’s first CE China convention, a new product was shown which took all attending journalists by pleasant surprise — the dlodlo Glass V One. A bit larger than a full-size set of sunglasses, the dlodlo Glass V One is small enough to stick in a larger pocket, something that is impossible to do with any other VR headset.
