I am the keyboard man. I am become keyboards. Whether it's been me reviewing Logitech's more wallet-friendly Prodigy line, its more luxurious G610 Orion (probably my favorite offering from them thus far), or Razer's...   read

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...   read

For the last couple of months, my fingers have been spoiled by using the Razer Ornata Chroma. The low-profile keycaps and satisfying tactility led to it being my keyboard of choice. But now Razer has released the BlackWidow C...   read

  Watch Video Amplitude's Endless Space 2 is dutifully trudging through its Early Access period and the game's third major update is bringing a new faction and (finally!) multiplayer. Said new faction is the Riftborn, an extradimensio...   read

Logitech's Artemis Spectrum is oft-heralded as one of the best gaming headsets you can buy, but the company has taken another stab at audio hardware with the G533 Wireless headset. Like its forefather, it's expensiv...   read

  Watch Video When Bethesda announced Prey during last year's E3, those who had been following the troubled development of the series were confused. Some history: the first game was about Tommy Tawodi, a Cherokee mechanic who was abdu...   read

  Watch Video I'll readily admit that I bounced off of Path of Exile when I first tried it in 2013. I played it when it was in open beta, and the overwhelming skill tree and muddy aesthetic didn't gel with me, so I shelved it. After playing a preview of the upcoming update, The Fall of Oriath, I can see that I was a hasty butthole to dismiss it and I'm downloading it as we speak.   read

It hasn't even been a month since I reviewed Resident Evil 7, a game that I thought was solidly okay (that's a joke, I'm the jerk who gave it a 10), and a big ol' chunk of DLC came out last week. It's called Banned Foota...   read

Resident Evil's been a roller coaster of quality for twenty years now. The first handful of games terrified players by making them exceedingly vulnerable in a world where a biological weapon turned living beings into various ...   read

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...   read

If Nintendo's unveiling event for their new console has convinced you that you gotta get your meat mitts on one o' them Switches, you might be wondering what all you get for your $300. Here's what's inside: The console itself...   read

  Watch Video Monolith Soft is bringing the next installment in the Xenoblade series to the Nintendo Switch. There's no release date yet other than "2017," but it sure looks purdy, and I always love a JRPG on a new console. Oh, and Yasunori Mitsuda is behind the music, so get ready to feel alternatively rockin' and sad in your heart.   read

The rumored Share button for the Nintendo Switch is real after all. Soon you'll be able to pester all of your friends with game screenshots and send them out with social media. Video capture will be possible some time in "the...   read

  Watch Video Though we've covered the isometric sci-fi Divide in the past, I was unfamiliar with how it looked and played until I got my hands on it. If I had seen it last year and known that it was going to remind me of watching my dad p...   read

  Watch Video I've never been a huge sports gamer. I was in real-life Little League and played high school football, but I just couldn't get into digital sports. That changed when I went to my friend Travis's house when I was 14, and he sh...   read

  Watch Video At trade shows, PR teams often try to get our attention by using phrases like "visceral" or "incredibly impressive graphics," and it all sorta blends together after awhile. Not so with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, a remake ...   read

The first addition to Dungeons & Dragons this year is Tales from the Yawning Portal, a new campaign book that takes ideas and dungeons from the past five decades and brings them to the fifth edition. It's framed as a coll...   read

Long War Studios, the fellers wot brought you the Long War mod for 2012's XCOM reboot, are replicating those actions for the sequel. A rebranding has led to the team calling itself Pavonis Interactive, and its official site m...   read

Despite being a big tabletop gamer, I don't have any particular affinity for Warhammer 40K. Like most people, I found Space Marine to be an entertaining (if shallow) dalliance with the universe, but I never was able to shake ...   read

Somehow, Yager's take on gigantic tactical ships blasting the ever-loving crap out of each other stealthed under my radar. Dreadnought has been in closed beta since last April on PC, but it's now coming to the PlayStation 4 a...   read

I love me some Persona. As such, I've been on a sort of media blackout, only seeing images of dope anime folk in masks on Twitter out of the corner of my eye. But when I saw that it was playable at PSX, I begged Atlus to let ...   read

When I reviewed Salt and Sanctuary earlier this year on PlayStation 4, I found it to be a more-than-competent side-scrolling take on From Software's Souls series. I played the majority of it in co-op and had a great time with...   read

  Watch Video Need more Shovel Knight in your life? The second expansion, Specter of Torment, is coming out next Spring, but there hasn't been a whole lot to see yet. Thanks to the Game Awards, there's finally a trailer so you can see the Specter Knight in action. It's been a while since I played the original, but Specter Knight was one of my favorite bosses and I look forward to bein' a spooky ghost.   read
