I truly, freakin’ love gaming laptops. Yes, they are massively expensive. Yes, they will be outclassed by PC hardware within a year. And yes, you can build something more powerful for half the price. But gaming laptops are essentially the supercars of PC gaming hardware, wholly unnecessary but unbelievably cool to gawk at. And the latest offering from MSI has my mouth watering. Because the Titan most certainly looks like it can talk the talk and click the clack.
It’s quite something to see how our local eSport scene is developing. rAge alone had insanely high prize pools, something which made me incredibly happy. We’re not done for the year though, as there are still other tournaments taking place. One is the Orena Lifechild Invitational. It will not only bring together top Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams for a shot at a possible R75000+ prize pool, it will also raise funds for charity.
Whenever I write about the awesome toys from SteelSeries, you lot jump all over me to tell me that despite being wonderful accessories, you simply can't afford them. Well, here is a headset in the budget range. Can SteelSeries make something worthwhile for less cash, or should they just stick to the high end stuff?
Oh look, we got sent more presents. Okay, it's not really a present if you don't get to keep the object forever, but at least I get that joy of opening the box. Watch me do it and see what's inside.
What’s big, round, and just around the corner? No, not that favourite hooker of yours. I’m talking about rAge of course! The expo kicks off this weekend at The Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate, bringing together all sorts of new tech, games, as well as the top eSports talent from around the country. The Do Gaming Championship already had some impressive prize pools. They’ve just grown larger.
Being primarily a console gamer, it’s been a while since I needed a proper gaming mouse; my R80 Logitech has been serving me well for my day to day business needs. However, with some top tier PC titles being released in the near future I jumped at the chance to review the Steelseries Sensei Wireless Laser mouse.
Gaming laptops suffer from an identity crisis. On the one hand, they want to be portable devices that aren’t insanely heavy to carry around. On the other, they want to deliver the type of performance that is required to run the latest and greatest games. The latest gaming laptop from MSI, however, knows exactly what it is.
If you’re an avid PC gamer, your input peripherals will more than likely be something high up on your priority list in terms of important hardware. Gamers always want the best, hardware that not only does its job properly, but looks the part too. Think your gear needs an upgrade?
We all try to get better at the games we enjoy. Some people go online to read strategy guides, other people practice for hours on end. However, SteelSeries has some eye tracking technology that might give gamers some new tools.
I'm loving these sponsorship announcements for the DGL. It seems like they are getting all the big names to sign on with fantastic prizes. The good people over at SteelSeries are the latest to announce their support for the DGL, sweetening the pot for Dota 2 players.
Pro-gamers have a ridiculous amount of mental agility. To make hundreds of accurate clicks per second and all that - it's pretty impressive. Now, SteelSeries is teaming up with Tobii to bring gaze-tracking technology to the equation, and it's seriously futuristic. But it's not just for eSports - you can even use your eyes in Skyrim.
When SteelSeries asked if I wanted to review their fancy new Apex keyboard I absolutely jumped at the idea. I’ve never reviewed a keyboard before and this one has lights and extra buttons and everything so this should be a lot of fun.
Steel Series has shown its commitment to South African eSports for a while now, particularly by sponsoring our local teams. Now, they've upped the game!
I bought myself a new laptop a little while back and within the first week my lovely, beautiful and clumsy wife spilled her Hunters Dry all over it destroying the keyboard. So I went out and bought the cheapest keyboard I could find and it is so loud it is driving me crazy.
