Review: V-Moda Crossfade M-100 photo
Review: V-Moda Crossfade M-100
by Daniel Starkey

I realize that the percentage of our readers that are legitimately in the market for a $300 set of headphones is fairly small, and honestly if you don’t think dropping that much cheddar is ever worth it, then I probably can’t convince you here and now.

If, however, you are crazy enough to want to spend a, quite frankly, irresponsibly large amount of money on such an accessory, then I genuinely believe it should be the M-100 for one reason -- they’re actually somewhat practical.

Dead Space 3's Kinect command cheat sheet

Review: Razer Sabertooth  photo
Review: Razer Sabertooth
by Dale North

I've tested many third-party game controllers in my day, and while I've liked quite a few of them, I always end up going back to the stock console controller. At the end of the day there's never enough there in these third-party offerings to warrant staying away from what I feel is the default and proper controller for a given console. Again, it's not that these controllers aren't nice -- they usually are. It's just that, outside gimmicks or options, they're never really better than the standard controller.

Maybe that has changed with Razer's Sabertooth controller. I've been using one non-stop for a couple of weeks and it has become my controller of choice.
