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. She just finished using it while covering CES 2017 and has enjoyed it so much that I just ordered one. That, however, is not the only Lenovo product worthy of note.
Announced at CES 2017, Logitech unveiled their Logitech G G533 wireless gaming headset. A comfortable looking wireless gaming headset optimized for PC gamers, the G533 is designed for extensive online gameplay and is the successor to the G960, one of the best-selling wireless gaming headsets of all time. Using Logitech’s patent-pending Pro-G drivers, you will get some of the best, if not THE best gaming audio compared to what else you’ll find on the market, including the ability to game using DTS Headphone X. With DTS not only will you be fully immersed in full 7.1 surround sound, during…
SteelSeries has knocked it out of the park with their new Arctis 7 wireless gaming headset. The Arctis 7 features lag-free wireless communication with DTS 7.1 surround sound and a 40 ft range, SteelSeries ClearCast microphone, premium audio drivers, and 15 hour battery life. This multi-platform, lightweight, and super-comfortable headset can be yours for $149.99.
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 hits the nail on the head with their new VYBE PC, a fantastic budget-friendly VR-capable gaming PC. Combining an Intel Core processor with NVIDIA’s new GeForce GTX 1060 and 8GB of HyperX Fury RAM, the VYBE is capable of playing all of the latest graphics intensive games in virtual reality. 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. Being someone who takes their gaming pretty seriously, especially online, a good headset is VERY hard to find. So let’s start with a few specs on the creative Sound BlasterX H7s: Audio ProcessingBlasterX Acoustic Engine Pro Headset Connector Type3.5mm Stereo Input…
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 Game Show that takes place in an online Action RPG that only eight people, in the whole world, can play. Oh, and once a player dies they can never play again. Ever. Upsilon Circuit will be exclusively live streamed during…
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 that they were partnering with Steam and publishers to allow you to add specific games already bought on Steam to your GoG library, I was ecstatic! Here are the details from GoG: “Connect your Steam account and grow or jumpstart…
Nearly three years since the last installment and more than five years since the series launch, series finale Avadon 3: The Warborn arrives this fall on Mac, PC and iPad. The epic franchise of games from legendary indie developer Spiderweb Software returns players to the exciting and delicately balanced world of Avadon, allowing them broad choices of storylines and character progress.
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.
These days I try to keep it as minimalistic as possible, and even as an avid Mac user there are certain instances where I NEED to use Windows, and I think I might have found the perfect solution, all for under $100 dollars.
The Alienware Steam Machine is unlike any computer I’ve ever used before. It’s built small enough to fit seamlessly with your living room entertainment center while also providing an excellent gaming experience. While the game library leaves something to be desired, this is a giant leap in the right direction. Buy your Alienware Steam Machine today, starting at $449.
First things, first; what the heck is an Alienware Steam Machine? Glad I asked. Alienware’s Steam Machine is a gaming PC that was born out of the need to bring PC gaming out from behind the desk and into the living room. It’s a tiny, yet powerful PC that’s capable of playing all the latest games and starts at $449.
I have a continuing love affair with the Jedi Knight game series, and tend to replay them almost every year. This year I’ve replayed them all starting with Dark Forces, and now I move to the last game in the series! So let’s look at Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
If you play mobile games you may already know ickle, the developer of Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! and 80 Days. Over the past couple of years I have reviewed both Sorcery! and 80 Days, and am a huge fan of both games. Now they are getting ready to launch on PC and Mac this fall!
One of my favorite recent games is Divinity: Original Sin from Larian Studios, who developed my ‘Top 5 all-time’ RPG Divine Divinity. The game released on Mac & PC about a year ago to much acclaim, and is getting an enhanced edition and console release this fall. Now Larian has announced that they are working on Divinity: Original Sin 2!
Other than comments on really cool cars I am testing, I usually don’t have too many coworkers remarking on the gear I am reviewing. The first day I carried the new Razer Tactical Gaming Backpack into work, however, that changed. No sooner did I toss it down on the counter than the Razer bag became a hit.
After 24 hours of teasing, Bethesda Game Studios announced the long-awaited fourth installment of the Fallout video game franchise ahead of the full reveal at E3. Fallout 4 takes place in, you guessed it, an open-world post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland…but this time, it appears to be in post-nuclear fallout Boston! Fallout 4 will be released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
I’d planned to write about the launch of The Bard’s Tale IV on Kickstarter anyway, but today I’ve learned of an incentive that makes it a ‘must pledge’ recommendation! InXile Entertainment announced that backers in the first 24 hours of the campaign will receive a free copy of Wasteland 2, CD Projekt’s The Witcher, or Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
One of my favorite games of 2014 was Divinity: Original Sin from Larian Studios. The game from the Divine Divinity studio brings in all of the elements of classic RPGs while also featuring drop-in/out multiplayer, cross-platform interaction, cloud saves and other modern features. Now they have announced an Enhanced Edition of the game including ports to PS4 and XBOX One!
