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!
kalahari is having a SteelSeries sale and I have a question for you specifically, yes you reading this right now
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.
The SteelSeries Apex [Raw] is the Apex’s less flashy baby brother, but don’t count it out. It’s one smooth sun of a gun with lots to offer. It’s the more affordable version of the Apex, and yes, yes it does make a huge difference in gameplay.
We all (should) have one. That surface that your shiny mouse sits on to avoid dust and grime and to give you smooth, even handling. But sometimes we neglect the mousepad: after forking out for high quality peripherals, your wallet might be screaming at you to just use that R30 brandless thing that came with your very first mouse.
I noticed the other day that the prices of hardware get shoved right at the bottom of reviews, in tiny print, sometimes in white text that you only see if you highlight the article. Okay maybe not the last part, but it comes close. So let's try something else. Look at what
R1300 R800 gets you:
Energy eSports recently announced their launch as a Multi Gaming Organisation; we caught up with Kas ‘CAWA’ Ahmad to take a closer look at why they started, what they plan to achieve and just how awesome the right sponsors can be.
I find myself in a kind of love - hate relationship with the Kana mouse from Steelseries. I love the functionality, but don't quite love the design as much, although it has kind of grown on me.
Right…today marks the end of two pretty damned popular competitions. The first, courtesy of MagicSA is a Magic the Gathering Holiday 2012 Gift Box – while the other is a real biggy; Far Cry 3 for the platform of your choice, plus a Steelseries multiplatform headset and a host of Far Cry 3 paraphernalia. Let’s cut to the chase and announce the winners, shall we?
Energy eSports, a new Multi-Gaming Organisation has surfaced, with huge sponsors like Monster Energy and Steelseries, experienced managers from PolarFluke founder Matt Merks to long time gaming journalist and competitive gamer Rob Clegg, this just might be S.A’s new top dog.
Last night, I said to myself, I said ‘Darryn, you’re not going to buy Far Cry 3, no matter how delicious it looks! We’ve got other games to finish first! Strength man, strength!’. And then I noticed that my hand had already gone and clicked pre-order on the website for it. Damn I’m weak! And you want the game as well, don’t you? Why not, it looks like fun on an exploding bun! And you could get it for free, with this competition we’re having today.
When I first heard about the Steelseries range I thought it was the next level of pirating. All of you dodgy pirates forming a group to download as much TV series as possible, disturbing stuff. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it had nothing to do with pirating and was in fact Megarom bringing in the great gaming accessories, including the 7H Headphones.
When I go into combat I take the biggest weapon I can. I get the tank with better armour, or I take along someone who can repair it for me. If there are no tanks available (boo!), I go for something two-handed and heavy. So why are you using that flimsy keyboard over there? Are you scared of having something more powerful than yourself? Could Bane use it without breaking its back? No, he couldn't! Meet the juggernaut of keyboards.
