Gamers do take their hobbies very seriously, and this would also mean having the right kind of hardware to power their gaming habit. The thing is, with so many different manufacturers out there in the market, just which particular model would be the right one? Alienware’s Aurora has certainly impressed when it was released, and MAINGEAR does not want to be left out of the picture either, which is why they have announced the availability of the RUSH, which is an elegantly brutish gaming desktop that boasts of a tempered glass body, origami wiring, advanced cooling design, and state-of-the-art components.
Specially designed to demolish gaming benchmarks without the need for a traditional fierce gaming desktop look, the MAINGEAR RUSH will boast of the elegant side of gaming desktops via a tempered glass chassis that is highlighted by ultra-clean lines, expertly crafted wiring, advanced and customizable liquid cooling options, and artistically positioned components. It is truly a work of art as it has been individually hand-assembled, letting the RUSH delivers unmatched performance despite being placed under a load of stress with EPIC SUPERSTOCK Liquid Cooling.
MAINGEAR’s signature cooling system will boast of dual pumps to get that extra bit of reliability, and it has an easy to fill extra-large reservoir with a separate backup reservoir. All those are crucial to ensure that Intel’s Extreme Edition Haswell-E or Skylake processors will work seamlessly, accompanied by up to 3 NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X or AMD Radeon R9 Fury X GPUs, with half a dozen hard drive bays, and NVMe SSDs. Apart from that, gamers who want to love to live life on the edge always can maximize their system with MAINGEAR’s REDLINE, which is a factory tested overclocking service that safely pushes the system to maximum potential. And you have got to admit, the looks alone are a killer that is worth the entry price.

What happens when you more or less know that you are the one behind the self-proclaimed “best MMO gaming mouse in the world”? Why, you do not simply sit down and rest on your laurels, but rather, you actually pick yourself up, look over the shoulders to see who are your nearest rivals, and then continue moving forward at a faster pace so that you will well and truly leave the rest of your competition in the dust. Having said that, Razer’s Naga Chroma mouse that has picked up its fair share of bouquets ever since it has been released, has been refreshed to include a state-of-the-art sensor and Chroma RGB lighting.
The brand new Razer Naga Chroma will come with a true 16,000 DPI 5G sensor that does not have any kind of interpolation, in addition to the aforementioned Chroma lighting with its iconic 12-button mechanical thumb grid. With the Razer 5G laser sensor, this gaming mouse is capable of tracking up to true 16,000 DPI in down to 1 DPI increments. Not only that, one should take note that this is a significant improvement over a current industry standard of 50 DPI increment tracking, where the device itself boasts effectively no interpolation, and has been optimized for multi-display setups with ultra-high display resolutions, making it perfect ideal for immersive MMO gameplay.
Right smack in the middle of the Razer Naga Chroma would be its iconic 12 concave mechanical thumb grid buttons that boast of tactile, audible feedback, and it has been optimized specifically for MMO gaming. Each button on the thumb grid will ergonomically stand out in order to pave the way for blind-finding, letting gamers more easily execute commands. The Razer Naga Chroma will also be part of the Chroma SDK, and those who are interested can pick it up for $79.99 a pop, although those who happen to live across the pond will have to fork out more for it, where it retails for €99.00.

An All-in-One PC is certainly a feat of engineering that is worth checking out, especially if you so happen to live in one of those shoebox apartments. Yes, these spaces are small enough to house a few people with a minimal amount of belongings, which means it makes plenty of sense to actually make plans as to how one will be able to maximize the space within, and an AiO PC plays a pretty handy role here. However, most AiO PCs out there tend to be rather slothful – comparatively speaking, of course, to other dedicated gaming machines, which is why MSI intends to change such a perception with their latest release, the MSI Gaming 27T.
The MSI Gaming 27T is touted to be the most powerful All-in-One gaming PC in the world, and we do not want to challenge that claim needlessly. After all, it does arrive packed with a slew of advanced components and technologies, where among them include Intel’s 6th Generation Core i7 desktop processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics; allowing the MSI Gaming 27T to stun the multimedia lover and impresses even the most hardcore gamer.
With the MSI Gaming 27T, it will arrive with an anti-glare 27-inch Full HD LED touchscreen, where this LED touchscreen will also boast of MSI’s energy stabilizing technology which will help to prevent flickering and blue light emission, reduce eyestrain and fatigue even in long gaming sessions. Gamers who want an even more visual experience will be able to take advantage of the pair of HDMI-out ports which would then support another two external screens.
Apart from that, the MSI Gaming 27T will also come with other cutting-edge components that would pave the way for an even more enjoyable gaming experience, such as Killer Wireless and Killer DoubleShot Pro for blazing online speeds with decreased latency and lag; Nahimic Audio Enhancer, SABRE Hi-Fi DAC, and Audio Boost for a hair raising sound experience, and MSI’s own Gaming Center application for ultimate gaming customization. The asking price for the MSI Gaming 27T stands at $2,699.99 a pop.

When it comes to gaming in the living room, dedicated consoles have certainly seen their fair share of ups and downs. Of course, we can more or less forget about the heydays of the Nintendo Entertainment System, or the NES for short, when it comes to the dedicated video game console, as that 8-bit machine certainly captured the imagination of many a child – and adult back then, all the way until the modern day iteration that is the Nintendo Wii U. Mobile gaming has certainly taken off in a big way these days, which makes perfect sense taking into consideration the kind of mobile lifestyle that we lead. The living room has also a whole lot more competition for the dedicated console, including virtually endless streaming of videos. Well, the MAINGEAR DRIFT Steam Machine might prove to be another worthy addition to the mix.
The MAINGEAR DRIFT Steam Machine is a SteamOS powered gaming PC (as you can tell by its name, of course), where it has been specially designed to deliver 4K gaming capability to just about any location, and this will also include the living room. After all, Full HD is not enough for some of us who want something a whole lot more, and with 4K gaming performance running on a full-sized desktop, this is certainly fly. After all, MAINGEAR’s DRIFT is able to be customized with overclocked Intel’s Extreme Edition Haswell-E or Skylake processors, accompanied by full-sized NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980Ti or Titan X GPUs, and has the ability to carry up to 16GBs of Kingston DDR4 memory. Not only that, the DRIFT will also boast of a trio of hard drive bays which can be outfitted with a pair of Samsung 850 Pro SSDs and a massive 6TB HDD.
The MAINGEAR DRIFT is now ready for customization with MAINGEAR’s true automotive paint finish, where you will be able to pick from just about any color and combination with a starting price point of $1,099.

If you don’t have a massive amount of money to blow on fancy gaming gear, you still want to find something that isn’t terribly expensive but will do the job. If it looks and feels awesome, that’s always a plus too. Most of the time those ultra expensive mice and keyboards are really only useful to the pros anyway, so there’s no use in paying triple the price if your skills can’t utilize the nanoseconds you’ll save.
By this point Mad Catz has made a good name for themselves in the gaming world, and they haven’t stopped making new goodies for us to drool over. Today the R.A.T.1 Mouse is on the docket, and it’s looking like it could do well for gamers on the go. This is a lightweight gaming mouse with 6 programmable buttons and detachable parts to make your long gaming sessions comfy.
It consists of three parts, including the tripod chassis which will act as the foundation, the sensor module which can be a mini mouse for travel when used by itself, and the adjustable palm rest. The latter will give you two positions to fit your hand comfortably. For those with access to a 3D printer, Mad Catz will also be making the CAD files for the palm rest available soon so you can tweak it to make your own! Its DPI range is 250-3000, and it comes with a 6 foot long cable. This is currently only available for pre-order, and will cost you $29.99, coming in color options of white or green.
Available for pre-order on MadCatz

It goes without saying that children would definitely be enthralled whenever they enter an arcade – the bright, blinking lights, the kind of realistic sound effects that the games make, as well as it being an escape from the dreary days at school and it being a break from boring old homework. However, there is the downside of getting addicted to such games, which is why parents would do well to control the amount of screen time that their little ones enjoy. Just in case your wallet is feeling nice and fat, here is the $6,900 Arcade Mini Roadster Simulator that might just keep junior happy this Christmas.
The Arcade Mini Roadster Simulator is a children’s single-player arcade game which will pitch and roll as drivers zoom their mini roadster around a simulated racecourse. With this, youngsters will be able to have a more entertaining and immersive racing experience as opposed to computer games that remain physically static in front a monitor, as the rally-striped roadster’s chassis will sway as the driver leans into turns and gently bucks when it hits rough terrain. It will be operated as though one was driving an actual roadster, through the pressing of the foot pedal to accelerate and turning the steering wheel to navigate the course. Definitely not a gift for those who are on a tight budget!

Gamers can be a particularly choosy lo – especially when it boils down to the kind of hardware that they use. Most of the time, they would settle for nothing less than the best that is available in the market, in order to maximize their chance at winning the next deathmatch or guild outing. However, once you are equipped with all the fancy gaming equipment and yet still lose a match to an opponent who uses inferior peripherals, then you know for sure it is time to stop your dreams of being a pro-gamer and continue being a programmer instead. Corsair is no stranger to gaming mice, having rolled out the Sabre RGB mouse in the previous year, and here they are with the brand new Katar Gaming Mouse for the masses to try out – and perhaps stick with the brand for a long time after this.
The Corsair Katar Gaming Mouse will deliver a simple and deadly choice for gamers who are on the lookout for the sharpest edge where competitive multiplayer games are concerned. It has been designed with the help of top pro-gaming teams worldwide, where you get to enjoy an ultra-responsive 8,000 DPI optical sensor for extreme accuracy and precise tracking regardless of the speed in which you move the mouse. Katar’s compact and ultra-lightweight 85g ambidextrous design would also make it a snap to use all day long without your hand feeling tired at all, regardless of whether you are a southpaw or otherwise. There are also rubber side grips which ensure you end up with a firm hold at all times, even when you normally sweat bucketloads through your palms.
The Corsair Katar gaming mouse is not only smart but ‘deadly’ as well, where Pro Player Mode lets you take advantage of pre-configured performance and tuning settings which are used by the world’s top players. This provides you with a psychological boost and who knows, might even offer you a professional edge without having to rack up years of practice.
Best of all is, the Corsair Katar gaming mouse will not burn a hole in your pocket if you decide to pick it up, as it costs just $39.99 a pop.

Is it me, or is it simply the season where notebook manufacturers roll out new and updated models of their existing gear in order to keep up with the rest of the industry? Maingear is a name that many of us should be familiar with when it comes to notebooks that are of decent quality and build. Having said that, here we are with a new model that has just rolled hot off Maingear’s production line – the Maingear Nomad 15. The Nomad 15 happens to be the latest gaming notebook from Maingear that will come packed with a slew of of cutting-edge components, where among them will include the likes of Intel’s 6th Generation Core i7 6700k processor, the NVIDIA GTX 980M graphics card, and a 4k G-Sync technology, among others.
All in all, you basically see the Nomad 15 offer the kind of processing power that is normally found on a desktop machine, save for the fact that this one would arrive in a portable chassis. The flagship 15” model will arrive with a full desktop z170 chipset and will be powered by Intel’s Skylake i7 6700k processor, delivering incredible performance that needs to be seen to be believed – at least this is the kind of expectations that Maingear seems to set up. Not only that, the NVIDIA GTX 980M will hum along nicely, offering astounding graphics without screen tearing thanks to an ultra-sharp 4K G-Sync display, and has support for dual Samsung’s 950 Pro NVMe SSD’s in a Raid 0 configuration.
The Nomad 15 is perfect for those who do not want to compromise their gaming experience even when one is fragging away on a notebook, and the customizable backlit keyboard adds to the amount of personalization within. There is also THX TruStudio Pro that delivers ultra-realistic surround sound, premium DDR4 memory, and Killer E2200 network which should offer the fastest connectivity while you are on the move. You can choose from 15” or 17” models, depending on the kind of viewing space you are more comfortable with. Any takers?

When it comes to portable gaming, we basically have three choices – the first would be to settle for a dedicated portable console, where this particular segment is filled by the Sony PS Vita and the Nintendo 3DS, while the other would be the tablet and smartphone form factors which offer a far more casual gaming experience. Serious gamers who cannot leave their muscle-bound desktops behind but are forced to, will have to settle for a somewhat bulky (relatively speaking) gaming notebook, which is not too conducive when it comes to working with one on a showfloor or at a conference show. MSI has rolled out gaming notebooks as recently as August this year in view of Windows 10, and here they are with what they deem to be the “world’s thinnest and lightest gaming laptop”, the MSI GS40 Phantom.
The all new MSI GS40 Phantom has been specially designed for gamers on the move who simply refuse to compromise on performance. Just how light is it to qualify for such a pompous declaration? Well, it seems that the MSI GS40 Phantom will tip the scales at a mere 3.5lbs, where it measures under 0.86” thin. Despite such a svelte form factor, it will come equipped with Intel’s 6th Generation Core i7 processor that is certainly no slouch, and when paired with the NVIDIA GTX 970M GPU, in addition to a range of high-tech components such as PCI-E Gen3 SSD, DDR4 Memory, and Super Port among others, you know you have got quite a beast underneath the hood here.
This ultra-mobile gaming laptop will be powered by Windows 10 and Full DirectX 12 3D features that should be a shoe in for even the most extreme gaming graphics. Apart from that, it is also a head turner, thanks to an elegant brushed aluminum chassis. Expect MSI’s GS40 Phantom with Intel’s Skylake processor to be available for $1,599.99 each if you are interested to clock up some serious gaming time while you are on the road.

Gaming while one is on the move is nothing new at all in this day and age. After all, we are an extremely mobile society, and just about everyone happens to own a smartphone these days, while some other road warriors happen to be toting around not only a smartphone but a tablet as well – in addition to a myriad of other portable devices that supposedly make life a whole lot easier. The kind of hardware firepower underneath the hood of these portable devices also make them suitable candidates for portable gaming, taking over the role of dedicated portable gaming machines like the Nintendo 3DS range and the Sony PS Vita. Sometimes, however, nothing beats a gaming controller compared to a touchscreen, which is why Satechi is proud to present the new Satechi Wireless Gamepad.
The Satechi Wireless Gamepad is the perfect accessory for smartphone and tablet gamers, where it will play nice with iOS, Android and Windows-powered mobile devices, providing gamers with the kind of traditional gaming experience in which they probably grew up with and crave, all without the hassle of cumbersome or inaccurate touchscreen controls. At least it is compatible with a myriad of mobile operating systems rather than just being limited to one like the Razer Junglecat gamepad.
This is a user-friendly, Bluetooth-enabled Wireless Gamepad that will arrive with a whopping 14 buttons, a pair of joysticks, and a directional pad. The integrated spring holder will ensure that the smartphone will remain on a convenient viewing angle on the gamepad, while your eyes will remain fixed on the game with both hands on the controls. When used as it is, the two features should be able to deliver users with the ultimate gaming experience on any mobile device. The asking price for the Satechi Wireless Gamepad stands at $39.99 a pop.
