Home key attack! It feels so good to type on super responsive keys, especially for someone that spends 6-8 hours a day typing on those chicklet-style laptop keyboards. Razer's new BlackWidow Ultimate has the key action that makes it hard to go back to my work keyboards. It feels like I'm typing faster. I feel connected to the machine. 

But how is this keyboard for gaming?

Two new Razer laptops offer power and profile at a premium photo
Two new Razer laptops offer power and profile at a premium
by Steven Hansen

Every time I see a razor blade in person I have to pick it up. Those things are dangerous and shouldn't be left lying about. Kids could put them in their mouth or pigeons could weaponize them. Maybe mobsters will smuggle them into prisons to slice their garlic.

The same thing happens when I see a Razer Blade. I try to keep tech fetishization to a minimum, but seeing a sort of pretty, svelte laptop playing Sleeping Dogs at 3200 x 1800, I can't help but be a little bit impressed. I pick up the Blade just to make sure it isn't attached to the desk it's on with secret desk innards powering it. Nope, it's a for-real laptop, lighter and thinner than what I'm writing on now and I can barely run Portal

If you can trick your work into expensing $2,000+ laptops, you should get one of these new two.

Cut the red wire! Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Asymmetric cooperative multiplayer is an idea that I always love to see in action. Artemis has done a good job proving that the concept is sound, if not a bit cumbersome to execute. The newest game that falls into the catego...

Up close and personal with Razer's Project Christine

At CES today, Razer snuck us in to get a closer look at their newly unveiled modular PC concept, which they've codenamed Project Christine. We got to talk to them about how this odd looking tower of blocks would work, and then we got to get up close to take some pictures.  I got in trouble for touching it!

Razer wants to reinvent the gaming PC as we know it
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

I'll give you a second to take in the image of Razer's new modular PC concept.

Project Christine is a "revolutionary new concept design that will change the way users view PCs." Basically, the system will allow for anyone to build and customize your own PC. No prior technical knowledge is needed, and as upgrades come to the market users will be able to easily to swap parts out.

This is all thanks to the modular design that allows users to install modules on-the-fly. The PCI-Express architecture automatically syncs components and the setup features up to quad-SLI graphics, multiple SSD and RAID storage components, I/O and more.

Interesting concept, but a pretty closed system as only Razer would presumably be making all the modules.

Review: Razer Kraken Forged Edition headphones
by Dale North

Niiiiice. That's what you'd expect to say trying out a premium set of audiophile-quality headphones, especially when they're priced at $299.00. Razer's Kraken Forged Edition music and gaming headphones are certainly nice in both form and function. 

But are they $299 nice? Do they have a look and sound so good that you'd be okay eating ramen for the next month?

Playing Skyrim, Darksiders and The Crysis on a Razer Edge photo
Playing Skyrim, Darksiders and The Crysis on a Razer Edge
by Jim Sterling

Your old buddy Jim Sterling has borrowed a Razer Edge with which to do all sorts of videogame things. You can watch me have a bit of a play on Skyrim, Crysis, Castle Crashers, and Darksiders II if you want. I try to make it interesting. A bit.

A more thorough write-up on the Edge will be coming in the future, but for now, watch me do playing about for a bit or something. If you want. You don't really have to.

Razer's lack of PS3 products due to CEO's gaming habits

You may have noticed that Razer doesn't produce any products for the PS3. It's kind of a mystery, and some gamers contended that a deal was struck between Razer and Microsoft to bring peripherals exclusively to the 360 -- but...

Review: 14-inch Razer Blade photo
Review: 14-inch Razer Blade
by Dale North

By now you know Razer's game when it comes to laptops: custom builds of handsomely outfitted specialty gaming machines that cost a pretty penny. Their latest outing, the 14-inch Blade, hits all of those marks. But it adds a new mark with portability.

As their marketing is keen on telling us, the machine is thinner than an on-end dime, coming in at 0.66 inches thick. And at about 4 lbs in its all black aluminum chassis, it really feels like you could take it anywhere. Even the power supply is a skinny little sliver of a thing. Razer has made sure that you have no excuse -- you should take this machine with you everywhere.

And with a lower price point, you may be able to afford to take it with you.
