FightStick review
Another fighting game, another fightstick. This month Mad Catz is unleashing several sticks into the market, including a sub $100 option, and a few $200+ models. Do you really need an expensive stick to play Street Fighter V? No, but a lot of you are going to buy it anyway.   read

Gaming Mice
I’ve never had much luck with gaming mice; either there’s too many moving parts and I break it, or the shape doesn’t fit my hands and feels uncomfortable to use. So when I got Cougar’s 450M ambidextrou...   read

Logitech
I'm not going to lie, Logitech is not a name I've traditionally associated with quality equipment for a gaming setup. Realistically, the only time I tend to browse Logitech products is when I need a cheap basic keyboard or mo...   read

Gaming Keyboard
I spend most of my time doing one of two things: writing about games for you lovely lot, or playing games so I can then write about games for you lovely lot. Because of that, keyboards are important to me, and finding one tha...   read

AVerMedia LGX review
I've been making gaming videos and streaming for what seems like forever, and I've gone through my fair share of capture devices. My original card only did 720p and 30fps, required hard drives setup in a RAID, and only captur...   read

REVIEW: Custom Controller
When a custom controller outfit offered to let us design our own tailor-made gamepad, it was a proposal we couldn't refuse. Except designing things is hard. So we rolled the dice and left that task in their hands, hoping thei...   read

New 3DS XL review
Nintendo has an interesting history in terms of portables. Outside of the rare add-on like the expansion pack for the Nintendo 64 or the Game Boy Player for the GameCube, they play it rather conservatively when it comes ...   read

Logitech G910 Orion Spark
In high-level competition, every little advantage counts. It is why Olympic swimmers shave their bodies before a race, why pre-med students fight tooth-and-nail for every half point on every test, and why gaming keyboards exi...   read

USB DAC review
Before I tell you why you need this DAC or any other, let me tell you what it actually is.  Think of a Digital to Analog Converter as an external upgrade for the circuitry of your audio device's innards. Every modern aud...   read

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate
asdf;lkjas;dlfkj;aslkjdf;lakjsdf;lkj 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 BlackWid...   read

PlayStation Gold headset
When I opened the box for the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset there was a big, black hair waiting for me. A greasy one. Greatness Awaits!   read

Wireless HDMI?
Connecting your PC (or game console) to your television isn't necessarily difficult, but the cabling can be a bit of a hassle. The HDMI outputs on better laptops and most GPUs make it easier by sending both video and audio ov...   read

iOS controller review
MFi controllers really have the ability to be a game changer for iOS devices. But they're in their infancy, and not only are a select amount of games supported, but they also have some limitations. So far, I've reviewed the L...   read

D-Link DGL-5500
Having a good router is a necessity these days. Every electronic device you own connects to the internet, and many play games online and stream HD video. Your PC and consoles are beginning to rely more and more on digital cop...   read

iOS controller review
The time has finally come for iOS gaming to shine with those of you who hate touch controls. For years mobile gaming has alienated those who can't stand playing things without tactile feedback, so iOS 7 and various peripheral manufacturers have answered the call. I already gave the MOGA Ace Power a pretty positive review, so how does the Logitech Powershell fare?   read

MOGA Ace Power
As you may have heard, MFi (Made for iPhone) controllers have started to roll out. In a nutshell, they work with a limited amount of games, but they allow you to use real, physical buttons for titles that may not work as well...   read

Game capture review
Game capture devices have gotten easier and easier to use with each passing year. What once was an elite craft is now easily accessible with the right unit, as it's as simple as plug-and-play functionality. Recently I had the...   read

SteelSeries H
Wireless headphones can be pretty expensive, but they can also be pretty damn convenient. Sometimes I don't feel like fumbling with wires, as it helps keep my setup clean, and the ability to wander around within a limited dis...   read

Custom One Pro
If you read this site regularly you'll know that I've reviewed a lot of headsets. A lot of gaming headsets, I should say. I'm not out to dump on any of them, but I want to start this review by saying that these Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro headphones sound better than any of the phones I've reviewed for this site. Flat out. No question.    read

Xbox One review

Review: Xbox One

Microsoft's Xbox 360 grew from being a simple game console to an all-in-one entertainment box over the last eight years or so, somehow squeezing in everything from multiplayer gaming to streaming movies and television. And no...   read

PS4 Review

Review: PlayStation 4

Remember daydreaming about a system that would let you buy and download games online, and then let you share your experiences socially? There was a day when the concept seemed so far off, but now that system is finally here.&...   read

SteelSeries Siberia Elite
Over the past year or so, I've acquired a decent amount of headphones. Some of them have fallen by the wayside, some of them relegated to certain devices, and a few have become decent "catch-alls" for most of my needs. Seeing...   read

Nvidia Shield review
[Disclosure: Nvidia has provided Destructoid with a number of computers for PC game review purposes in the past. If you feel that may make our reviews of any of their products "biased" or "paid off," you are welcome to.] The ...   read

Wikipad hardware review
I'm constantly reminded that we're in a rather strange era of gaming. While past generations have decidedly kept console and portable gaming completely separate, the two experiences are converging more and more with the rise ...   read

HD capture card review
Creating and cutting videos can be extremely time consuming. For those who have been doing it for years, it's like second nature -- all of your advanced equipment ready to go, and all you have to do is press a button to have ...   read

Ouroboros review
I've been playing PC games with Razer's Ouroboros wired/wireless ambidextrous gaming mouse for a bit now, trying out everything from MMOs to FPS to casual games. This is one really nice mouse, but it had better be for its asking price of $149.99.    read

Ouya reviewed
The Ouya is on sale today, and I've spent a few days with the final retail unit. For $99, you can get your hands on a cute little cube that runs a selection of Android games, a handful of apps, and is designed for amateur dev...   read

Portable gaming monitor
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...   read

Logitech G700s review
There's so many options for mice out there, it's tough to narrow down what you actually need. With options for everyday use, gaming, image editing, and everything in-between, sometimes things can get confusing. Enter the Logi...   read

MOGA Pro
Remember the MOGA controller for Android that we reviewed late last year? PowerA took the idea behind the system and has now gone pro with it with what they're calling the MOGA Pro Mobile Gaming System. We've put this brand new controller through its paces this week to bring you this launch day review.   read
