Xbox One to ship without headsets

It's been nearly a week since Microsoft announced its decision to scrap their DRM policy -- a decision met with some mixed, albeit mostly-positive reactions. In light of this, many gamers are now prepared to give the Xbox One a second chance, while others may find the $499 price tag a bit too steep. For that price, you'd feel it safe to assume Microsoft would toss in a headset. You'd be wrong.

Mega Man's robo-dog Rush, now in tissue box form

Amidst Capcom's schemes to appease us with Mega Man-themed paraphernalia in the absence of an actual game announcement, I've more or less remained as reserved as could be. When Mega Man Xbox Avatars appeared, I kept my mouth ...

Turtle Beach headsets in the works for Xbox One

With this generation's meteoric rise of Call of Duty came a similar interest in gaming headsets. It's not surprising to hear then that Turtle Beach is at work on a line of Xbox One headsets. There's not a whole lot of details...

Review: Sumo Emperor photo
Review: Sumo Emperor
by Chris Carter

Furniture can get pretty expensive. Sometimes, you'll go into a store ready to buy a replacement chair, and before you know it, you and your wife are picking out a five-piece sofa set. Comfort, price, and aesthetics all come into play, and somewhere along the middle of all three options is the bean bag chair.

Of course, like all furniture, bean bags have premium options -- specifically, the Sumo brand, which we've covered in the past. As someone who plays an awful lot of games, and was curious as to whether or not they're worth the price, I decided to take the Sumo Emperor for a spin.

Senran Kagura cell phone charms smell like breasts

The marketing of booby ninja school girl brawler series Senran Kagura is simply outrageous. Branded tissue boxes? Facepalm worthy. Themed desserts? Fairly creative. Cell phone charms? Well, that doesn't sound so bad... ... oh...

Review: On-Lap 2501M Portable LCD Gaming Monitor
by Dale North

Are you an on-the-go console gamer? If so, taking your gaming rig with you usually requires a television to be waiting at your destination, which is not ideal. While bringing a smaller television or monitor with you could be a slightly more manageable solution, there are still issues with power supply and portability.

What if there were an ultra-slim, highly portable LCD gaming monitor that ran on its own internal battery power?

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.
