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...

Review: G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard

At a private appointment in Culver City, Logitech representatives showed me an iceberg on a presentation slide. The tiny summit above the water symbolized the dedicated gamers who already know about the best of the best in tech, and the hid...

Review: Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse

If you've read my review for Logitech's G900 Chaos Spectrum mouse, you know I'm not the biggest tech head. I love testing and getting a feel for new gear, but the numbers side of thing is a bit lost on me (shame on me, I know!). So when I w...

 
 
 
Xbox One S review photo

Review: Xbox One S

Microsoft had a lot of catching up to do. I'll spare you the history once again of how badly it bungled the announcement of the Xbox One, but since then, it has made strides. The UI is a lot better than it used to be (especially now with th...

Review: SteelSeries Apex M800 Keyboard

I've been using the SteelSeries Apex M800 keyboard next to the Rival 700 that I recently reviewed since getting home from E3 last month and I have to say I can see why many people would want this keyboard. As for myself? I'll be switching b...

Review: SteelSeries Rival 700 Mouse

As someone who has played first-person shooters on consoles the majority of my life, I've only recently attempted to make the switch to mouse and keyboard. This is largely thanks to many PC versions of games being generally better than thei...

Review: Hyper X Cloud Revolver headset

Are you an audiophile? If so, this review probably won't answer most of your questions. However, if you're a Regular Person and want to know the down-low on the Hyper X Cloud Revolver headset, I've got you covered. I'm here to answer the im...

Review: SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Headset

The SteelSeries Siberia 800 wireless gaming headset is, by a wide margin, the most expensive gaming headset I have ever owned, and with that comes a set of expectations. It's hard to try out a pair of headphones retailing at over £250...

Review: SteelSeries Siberia 350 USB headset

SteelSeries has been my brand of choice when it comes to gaming headphones for years now. After breaking or being unimpressed with tons of other brands, the Siberia V2 was the first one that really clicked for me. It was the perfect mix of ...

 
 
Racing Wheel photo

Review: Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback Wheel

As a gamer with limited experience playing driving sims, I have often underestimated the effect that a nice racing wheel can have on player experience. I'll often enjoy playing Euro Truck Simulator or Forza Horizon casually, but I'm aware I...

Review: Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum

These last few weeks have been very kind to my gaming phalanges. After upgrading from a bargain basement mouse and keyboard combination, I upgraded to Logitech's G610 Orion Brown and G900 Chaos Spectrum. Obviously, such a jump would ma...

Review: Logitech G610 Orion Brown

For the last couple months, I've been using a $2 keyboard that I bought because I built a PC with leftover parts I had, and needed something functional for Destructoid. While my main PC has a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate, that's the family com...

 
 
HTC Vive photo

Review: HTC Vive

The first time I tried out the HTC Vive back at EGX 2015, I was absolutely blown away by the leap in gaming technology it presented. I spent half an hour painting in thin air, helping land aircraft safely, reeling back from stunningly high ...

Review: Roccat Nyth modular MMO gaming mouse

You’d be forgiven for thinking MMO mice are a daft idea. Taking a perfectly good mouse and ramming in a load of tiny buttons right where your thumb sits sounds like it would be a recipe for disaster. At least, that’s what I thou...

 
 
Oculus Rift review photo

Review: Oculus Rift

I will never forget my first experience with virtual reality. I was at a county fair as a child, and there was a large line for a "virtual NASCAR" racing game. I took one look at the helmet, and that's all I needed to see -- I wanted in. Of...

Review: Roccat Ryos MK FX Gaming Keyboard

Roccat has always been one of those brands that I've been faintly aware of, yet never actually bothered to check out. Compared to bigger brands like Razer and Corsair, Roccat sits in the background, working on its products and not bothering...

Review: Roccat Kova mouse

Until Roccat's Kova gaming mouse arrived on my desk this week, I had never actually heard of the company before. That's a shame, because there are a bunch of unique and interesting aspects of their gaming mouse design that set them aside fr...

Review: Corsair VOID Stereo Gaming Headset

Some people spend hundreds of pounds/dollars[insert your denomination here] on a headset. Me? I spend enough on consoles and subscriptions and games and t-shirts and Pop Vinyl figures as it is. So while I’m content enough with mid-ran...
