Review: Edifier S730 2.1 speaker system

Speakers are kind of an anomaly for me. I'm pretty well-versed in headphones, both in terms of decadence and thriftiness, but the world of speakers, specifically anything above the 2.1 realm, requires a different level of expertise. Luckily...

Review: Pocket Sprite

The Pocket Sprite looks like something that couldn't have existed 20 years ago. The miniature console resembles a Game Boy Color but is only about 1/6th the size. It started as a self-challenge by its designer to see how small he could...

Review: Retro-Bit Super Retro Trio Plus

Clone systems everywhere, in my dreams, and my nightmares. Clone systems coming out of my ears. It feels like not that long ago the first cheap NES clones were coming out. They felt so novel back then, a way to play your old games without d...

Review: Retro-Bit NES Power Stick

When I first opened the Power Stick by Retro-Bit, nostalgic memories came flooding back. Images from my childhood of playing games in front of the glow of the television screen in the middle of the night cuddled up under a blanket, and toss...

Review: Xbox One X

I have the good fortune of being able to cover console launches before, during, and after their release, which gives me plenty of time to study trends. Seeing Microsoft riding high off of the Xbox 360, clawing at Sony after their big Xbox v...

Review: Nintendo Super NES Classic Edition

The SNES Mini was inevitable. After the NES model rocked the world, and subsequently sold out everywhere, Nintendo would be stupid to not follow it up. Rumors flowed from retail spaces like GameStop that a follow-up was coming, and lo and b...

Review: Retro-Bit RES Plus HDMI NES console

Right off the bat, I typically don’t like clone consoles. I’m a total retro snob for the most part; not a collector but extremely picky about the accuracy of my old games. A couple of years ago I had to sell the majority of my c...

Review: New Nintendo 2DS XL

It's starting to get difficult to keep track of every iteration in the Nintendo 3DS console line up. First, there was the original 3DS console from 2011. Then came the 3DS XL in 2012, which simply provided users with a larger variant of Nin...

Review: 8bitdo controllers (NES30/FC30/SNES30)

Everything old is new again, thanks to 8bitdo's controller collection that looks and feels like authentic NES and SNES controllers. Not only do these controllers work wirelessly (though you can play via USB on supported devices), but they a...

Review: SteelSeries QcK Prism

I'm becoming a real RGB slut. I have RGB lighting in my keyboard, mouse, behind my TV, and even, I shit you not, in my toilets. I don't know what it is, but being able to see a rainbow or any color I want at any given moment just makes me h...

Review: BenQ HT3050 3D Projector

BenQ sent us a 3D DLP projector, and Oh my God, Becky it's huge. There's a giant booty on this thing: two massive speakers built right in the rear. The HT3050 is marketed as a color-calibrated wonder, offering an accurate "Rec 709" presets ...

Review: SteelSeries Arctis 7

I've been pretty consistent about my feelings regarding SteelSeries headsets for the past four years or so. They're on the expensive side, but they more often than not end up being my headset of choice on various platforms. I'm probably goi...

Review: Logitech Pro G Keyboard

When Logitech started their G Pro Gaming line with a mouse, I found it to be a simplistic but efficient device that would work well for eSports. Well, at least, I think it would. I'm not good enough for tournaments. I'm happy just to finish...

A good old fashioned Nintendo Switch accessory review roundup

[Update: More accessory reviews have been added.] Now that the shiny new Nintendo Switch is out, it's time to put a bunch of accessories to the test. If you're curious how some third-party (sanctioned or non-sanctioned) peripherals measure ...

Review: Nintendo Switch

Nintendo is still reeling from the Wii U, so its mission statement is a bit muddled right now. Is the Switch a replacement for the 3DS? Nintendo said it wasn't for the Wii U, but then discontinued it mere weeks later. Let's face it, the Swi...

Review: Analogue Nt mini

When I first got wind of the Analogue Nt mini, I immediately went into shock after seeing the price. $450 for an NES re-creation? I had to find out if it was worth the scratch. While many of you will probably never be able to justify the co...

Review: Razer Ornata Chroma Keyboard

In the year 2016, mechanical keyboards and membrane keyboards are currently embroiled in an ongoing war. Those in love with the former contend that having actual mechanical switches under their buttons gives typing and gaming a higher amoun...

Review: AUKEY KM-G3 RGB Mechanical Keyboard

I love mechanical keyboards. I used to think people that raved and ranted about them and spent hundreds of dollars on a basic-looking, loud-as-hell keyboard were stupid idiots -- until I tried one. Now I can never go back. That said, I see ...

Review: Oculus Touch

VR has had a curious impact on the industry. It's not mainstream yet. It's pricey. It's unwieldy. Yet, it's all executives and developers are talking about. We're not quite at the apex of the "revolution," but we do have platform wars curre...

Review: FNATIC Duel TMA-2 Modular Gaming Headset

When you see the name FNATIC, you're probably reminded of the various eSports teams that bear the name, or you're outraged that someone would spell fanatic wrong. What you're not thinking is "Hey, I bet they make some good headsets," and le...

Review: SteelSeries Arctis 5

I've been using the SteelSeries Arctis 5 as my main headset on my PC since getting them a few weeks back, and frankly, I don't see myself going back to my far more expensive Astros. This headset fits, keeps my hair from being a mess, d...

Review: NES Classic Edition

The NES was the first console I ever owned. Somehow I had saved holiday and birthday money for over a year to get it (the idea may have been planted by a family member) at five years old, and although I don't remember every detail of that p...

Review: SteelSeries Rival 500 Mouse

If you're like me, you've probably thought about how easy it would be to play a MOBA with one of those fancy MMO mice with tons of buttons, freeing up a hand to do all kinds of fun activities. Well now you can with the SteelSeries Rival 500...

Review: PlayStation VR

The VR battles lines have been drawn. The Oculus Rift struck first, but has been suffering from several setbacks like accusations of operating on a closed platform. Valve has hedged its bet on the HTC Vive, the best headset on a technical l...

Review: PowerA Fusion Controller for Xbox One

I don't know why controllers with extra buttons and features cost so damned much. Clearly, neither do the folks at PowerA, who have created the Fusion controller for Xbox One that includes swappable sticks, quick-trigger locks, and two extr...
