Players enter the cockpit of a six-story-high war machine and use strategy and skill to fire upon enemies with a wide array...

HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset Review

The HyperX Cloud Alpha is the rare gaming headset that blends functionality, design and superb sound into one complete package. The headset is comprised of clean and subdued colors except for the bright splashes of the HyperX logo and rims, making for an elegant contrast. Rarely, for a gaming headset, the headset sans microphone is something that I wouldn’t feel out of place wearing in the subway, if not for the overly vivid color. HyperX...

SteelSeries Sensei 310 Gaming Mouse Review

Taking from our Rival 310 review… SteelSeries recently teamed up with experienced mouse sensor developer PixArt to develop something new. In the world of gaming mice, touting DPI and CPI tracking up to and beyond 20,000, one wonders if it is even worth it if tracking at such ridiculous rates leads to sporadic or delayed results, at even the lowest of settings. SteelSeries and Pixart combined to create their answer to this in the form of...

WWE Slam Crate “Masters of the Mic” Unboxed

We are back this month with another Slam Crate from WWE. Last time around they took us on a “Road to WrestleMania” and on this stretch we will be looking at what they are deeming as “The Masters of the Mic”. If you ever watch WWE, they primary focus on two things, wrestling skills which is of most importance but they also look at mic skills. They want to see that you are able to...

“Road to WrestleMania” WWE Slam Crate powered by WWE Unboxing

With WrestleMania weekend taking place I thought it be a good idea to pop up this “Road to WrestleMania” WWE Slam Crate powered by WWE. Just from the title alone you know it will be chock full of that long to get to the biggest stage of all which is WrestleMania. First off is an exclusive T-Shirt by the former architect of “The Shield” and former WWE & US Champion Seth Rollins. Seth had one...

Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse Review

The Logitech G403 Prodigy is a beautiful right-handed mouse designed and built for gamers of all ages and skill sets. This mouse is properly priced at $70. The G403 Prodigy has 6 programmable buttons with a 1ms response time which I’ve noticed that any millisecond advantage could mean the difference between killing or being killed. Apart from that, the 16.8 million lighting options simply make the G403 more fun. The Logitech G403 weighs a mere 107g with...

HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset Review

The HyperX Cloud Stinger provides an experience that one would expect from a headset at double the price, and does so with a relatively slim design. Wearing such lightweight headphones was a welcome change of pace from the heavier sets I tend to use. A pleasant surprise was that it struck a good balance of being lightweight and comfortable for long gaming sessions, while being well made enough not to feel cheap as lower priced...

Helix Dock for Apple Watch

Helix Dock for Apple Watch Review

I’ve been using the Helix Dock for Apple Watch for a couple of weeks now, both at home and while traveling. Standzout created the Helix Dock as a storage/charging hybrid solution for your Apple Watch. It is a compact housing that stores up to two meters of your existing Apple Watch charging cable allowing you to reduce cable clutter and save time. I’ll start with the not-so-great. Set up requires a little work and will probably take a...

Emily Weiskopf: Pixan Paths // Higher Roads Exhibition - Jenn Singer Gallery

Emily Weiskopf: Pixan Paths // Higher Roads Exhibition – Jenn Singer Gallery

Emblematic and emotionally explorative, the work on display at the Jenn Singer Gallery by Emily Weiskopf is informed by a range of different experiences and sources. Her time as a Printmaker is evident in the love of texture, technical ability, and color on display. Using a device repeated through the work, a marathon track sliced and reassembled, she skillfully employs it to explore ideas across an impressive amount of materials. The device is inspired by...
