If you like having a specific aesthetic in mind for your interior decorating, it’s hard to not try and make everything fit into your vision. If you’re wanting a cabin in the woods feel and you live in a big city, it’s going to be hard to find the cozy, cluttered theme that you like without going out of your way. If you at least want a bit of the visual warmth that wood can bring, then why not go for the decal route?
Our game consoles don’t really fit into a classy or cozy aesthetic, which is why these Custom Gaming Covers from Toast are both hilarious and kind of awesome. They’re available for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 priced at $59, and they come in options of walnut, ash, bamboo, and ebony. For what they are, they look pretty great, and are relatively convincing that they could just as easily be an old radio to anyone who isn’t looking hard enough.
Sadly there aren’t decals to go on the controllers anywhere in sight, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t find them elsewhere. If you’re feeling extra fancy, you can even get a custom design put on this! These are rather pricey just to achieve a desired effect, but hey, if you got it, spend it mercilessly so you can feel at peace when you look at all the cool stuff you have. That’s how that works, right?

How many people that you know pay for cable and actually use it to the full extent? Most of us use the internet to watch things on YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and Crunchyroll (don’t lie to yourself). Of course, this means we usually have to watch on our laptops. If you want to stream things onto your TV, then you’re going to need a way to do that quickly and easily, and without losing any quality if at all possible.
The Nvidia Shield Pro is an Android TV box that will let you stream games as well as your favorite shows and movies in 4K Ultra HD or 1080p at up to 60fps. If you would prefer to hoard some media, there is also 500GB for you to utilize, but the liklihood is that you’re not going to get through every show or game you have saved. This uses the NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor, which is said to make this perform 25 times better than other popular streaming devices.
This also has a MicroSD and two 3.0 USB ports, and while it doesn’t come with a remote, it’s not a bad extra purchase, albeit a pricey add-on at $49.99. Chromecast is built-in, so iOS or Android games from your phone can be streamed onto your TV. You’ll also be able to use voice search and commands to make it easy to find what you’re looking for without much hassle. It’s likely in your interests to hook up a Bluetooth keyboard with this and get a stand so you can keep the box where you like, but that’s only going to add on top of the $360+ you’ll be spending on this setup.

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.

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

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?

Gamers are a spoiled lot – especially those who are hardcore gamers and would like to have the very best hardware in the business in order to get an edge over the competition. Graphics in the gaming world has definitely improved over the years, and it more or less feels as though audio is the poorer orphan between the two. Thankfully, there has been advances made in this particular department as well, and here we are with the $99.99 Aftershokz Gamez – a pair of wireless bone conduction headphones that has been specially designed for gamers. There has been one for outdoor folks earlier this year with the AfterShokz: Trekz, so this one is for gamers.
Basically, the Aftershokz Gamez comes in a band that wraps behind the gamer’s head where it will rest in front of one’s ears. This would leave your ears open, while sound is sent directly to the cochlea. It will definitely play a very different role compared to those headphones which intend to block out noise from the outside world, as you can still listen to your favorite tunes or watch the latest blockbusters with sound that “happens” in your head itself, without closing yourself out from the external world. This also makes it perfect for those who love to indulge in a fair bit of jogging, as you can still hear traffic around you which might save your life from a daydreaming driver. Running on Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity with dual-suspension beryllium copper-infused transducers, a single charge lasts for 6 hours of play or 10 hours of standby, while recharging it would take a couple of hours.

Skullcandy is a name that many of us are familiar with when it comes to trendsetting headphones, where they have even come up with a Women’s headphones and earbuds collection in the past. Having said that, the company does not look as though they are going to relent anytime soon when it comes to the rolling out of new devices, and their Sport Performance range is now on the receiving end of a couple of earbuds – namely the XTfree wireless and XTplyo earbuds (which you can see above) which will target both genders, meaning the men are not left out of the equation this time around.
Skullcandy came up with the innovative XTfree and XTplyo in order to meet the demands of high intensity interval training, which is a common kind of training methodology that is shared across Skullcandy’s diverse roster of athletes. The end result would be products which are more than capable of enhancing even the most intense training sessions thanks to category leading durability, stability and leading audio quality.
It does not matter if you are a weekend warrior who is preparing for your first 10K running race or if you constantly make world records fall like a pack of dominos, the XTfree and XTplyo products have been specially built in order to perform during the high intensity workouts – regardless of whether you are a world beater or not. Should the world class athletes be satisfied with the performance of either, then there really is no reason left for the ordinary man on the street to complain about the hardware that Skullcandy pushes out.
The XTfree will also debut Skullcandy’s MicroSport Tech with Bluetooth functionality, where it tips the scales at less than 16 grams, making it one of the lowest profile and lightest earbuds in the market. These high-performance wireless sport earbuds will also feature an OnBoard microphone and remote which enables the user to take calls, adjust volume and control their music while working out, sporting a half dozen hours’ worth of battery life to boot.
The $99.99 XTfree is Skullcandy’s lightest and most secure wireless sport earbuds, while the $49.99 XTplyo earbuds deliver a secure and sweat resistant fit that can survive your most intense workouts.
