Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse dazzles with new light array

A company is not going to go anywhere if it chooses to rest on its laurels, and the same applies to Logitech. This is a company that has long dabbled with computer accessories, ranging from keyboards to speakers, protective cases and even mice, and their expertise in the realm of gaming mice shines forth yet again with the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. Just in case the name sounds familiar to you, that is because this will be a direct successor to the best selling Logitech G502 Proteus Core tunable gaming mouse, and boy, will you be able to dazzle your mates with this bad boy – although it would be even better if your gaming skills were mad enough to complement such a piece of hardware.

Logitech has decided to throw in RGB customizable lighting into the Logitech G502 Proteus Core, resulting in it being the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. Of course, it will be able to maintain what Logitech is proud to call it the world’s best DPI sensor, where its exclusive Logitech G Delta Zero optical sensor technology will help to increase reliable targeting. Not only that, the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum also boasts of a massive DPI range of 200 to 12,000 with zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering and zero pixel rounding.

In addition, you can have it match your style and environment by adjusting up to 16.8 million colors and brightness, thanks to Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). You can make sure your mouse is brought to life with breathing light patterns, or opt to set your lighting to continuously cycle through the color spectrum. To be more inclusive, the lighting can also be synchronized with Logitech G’s other RGB products.

To make sure that you gain any and every edge possible, personal tweaks like the ability to adjust its weight makes it all the more impressive. After all, weight adjustment lets you modify the center of balance through the placement of up to five 3.6g weights in the mouse, and one will be able to reassign any command or macro to one of the 11 programmable buttons, using LGS, in double quick time.

Expect the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum to be available for an investment of $79.99 apiece.

Totino’s Bucking Couch: gamers will love it!

Totino’s Pizza Rolls has teamed up with Twitch, where the latter is the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers. The reason behind this particular partnership? They intend to end up with what they deem as the ultimate gaming showdown with the use of a one-of-a-kind “Totino’s Bucking Couch.” This coming February 7th, which falls on a Sunday, will see Twitch users have the opportunity to spin, roll and buck some of the top names in gaming right off the couch they’re sitting on in the first ever “Totino’s Bucking Couch Bowl.” It is like riding a rodeo, except that there is no risk of you being trampled upon when you fall off, and neither do you have to worry about ending up in a pile of steaming dung. It is like one of those specialized gaming chairs, but a whole lot more fun!

Developed by Totino’s, the first ever bucking couch has been specially set up like a mechanical bull with a full range of motion and controlled via chatroom commands by Twitch commentators, where it will highlight the Totino’s “Live Free. Couch Hard.” lifestyle. Specially designed to disrupt anyone who takes a seat, the couch also offers a challenge to skilled gamers as well as a thrilling live event for Twitch users to enjoy.

The “Totino’s Bucking Couch Bowl” competition will place two top gamers to face up against one another in two distinct scenarios. One of the gamers will be on the Bucking Couch, while the other gamer would be on a “normal” couch. The Bucking Couch will no doubt offer the massive disadvantage of distractions controlled by Twitch commenters, hence the expert gamers who sit in it will be at the complete mercy of the viewers who are watching and engaging at home, while they ensure their utmost best to remain on it. Opponents who are comfortably seated on the “normal” couch will be subjected to various in-studio disruptors that have been specially geared to distract all of the other senses, which means both sides have its own disadvantages.

The Packed Pixels Portable Monitors help your laptop feel like the home office

Packed Pixels

Traveling for work can be fun from time to time, but the downside is that you’re always stuck on your laptop. It’s just not the same as the home setup where you have your overpowered PC, two or more monitors, and a mouse and keyboard that are comfortable to use for more than a few hours. While you can’t bring all the comforts of home with you, that doesn’t mean you can’t at least have an extra monitor or two on the road.

While the Packed Pixels will pale in comparison to what we have at home, they’ll at least make us feel more comfortable working from more than one screen. This will give you a pair of mounting brackets for your laptop, a desk stand, all the necessary cables, and of course, a Packed Pixels Monitor. These screens use Hi-Res 2048 x 1536 9.7” screens that are the same as the iPad, which means you’ll get all that visual crispness without having to clutter up your work space.

To put this on only requires you to slide on the bracket since it can fit a variety of screen thicknesses and sizes. Yes, this means whether you have an 11 or 17” laptop, the brackets will fit. Since it will plug in directly, you also don’t need to worry about any drivers. Whether you need it for work or play, this will give you a lot more visual room to get the job done as you can have it in portrait or landscape mode. If you’re only looking for one extra screen, you can get the whole kit and kaboodle for around $230.

Fire Emblem Fates Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL ready to rock and roll next month

When it comes to portable gaming consoles, there is one particular name that has remained stuck in the minds of many, and that would be Nintendo, starting with their iconic Game & Watch titles of yore, before moving on to the Game Boy and then the Nintendo DS, with the Nintendo 3DS XL being the latest model of the series. As you should know by now, Nintendo is not shy to roll out different kinds iterations or special edition versions of the same console, and many different people happen to bite on their bait as well. This time around, we have a special Fire Emblem Fates Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL system that will launch this coming February 19, where it will also be accompanied by a Collector’s Edition for Bravely Second: End Layer, that will include the upcoming sequel to the acclaimed Bravely Default game that launches on April 15.

The Fire Emblem Fates Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL system (if you would like the game, it will be sold separately) that launches this February 19 will sport a sticker price of $199.99 a pop, where it features gorgeous art that has been inspired by the game on the front of the hardware. Players will be able to pick from one of two versions when the Fire Emblem Fates games launch on the same day at $39.99 a pop.

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright will see players battle a corrupted king, whereas in Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, a misguided kingdom will need to be renewed and changed from within – sounds familiar like many different political situations around the world today? Each path will be a complete story and a complete game, and if you were to play both, you will see two different sides of one brutal conflict. Upon completing Chapter 6, players will then be able to choose to download the other version of the game and experience a new adventure for only $19.99.

The Razer Nabu Watch is for sporty gamers

People who identify as gamers try to avoid the bad rep of being Cheeto dust-fingered fatties who do nothing with their lives but sit at a desk or on the couch playing games all day. First of all, doing that is fun and no one should be shamed for it. Secondly, how many people that you know who play games are like that? Just like people, gamers come in all different shapes and sizes, some exercise daily and others fit the stereotype.

For the ones that really love to work out, Razer has taken note and realized that the Nabu smartband wasn’t enough. The Nabu Watch is going to be hitting the market this month, and is looking just as good as most of the other sport watches out on the shelves. This has an OLED display that shows hours, minutes, and seconds, your alarm, world time, and on a second display will also show your activity, and a live feed of notifications. You can even scroll through your alerts for calls, texts, emails, and app alerts one at a time through the press of a button.

This watch also has a stopwatch feature, automatically syncs to the time on your phone, has countdown timers, is water and shock-resistant, and gives you a full range of fitness tracking. You’ll be able to keep tabs on your active minutes, steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, hours slept, and goals. The battery will be able to last for 12 months as it uses a coin cell battery, but the secondary screen will need charging once every week. The app to go with it is available for iOS and Android alike, and you’ll be looking at $199.99 for the stainless steel button version or $149 if you’re willing to wait until the end of the month.

The Roccat Kiro is a modular ambidextrous gaming mouse for all paws

When you’re basically glued to your computer for more hours of the day than you’d care to count, it’s pretty important that your setup is comfortable. You want to be sitting at the correct height, using a keyboard that doesn’t put strain on your wrists, and a mouse that fits comfortably in your hand. Since only around 10% of the world populace is said to be left-handed, those people are going to have a harder time getting a more cozy setup.

The Roccat Kiro is aiming to please whether you are right or left-handed as it is a modular mouse that you can change up whenever you’d like. It’s not built to be very big, but comes with a catalog of four side parts that include buttons and blanks so you can customize things as you see fit. There will be 3D print support soon to give you even more options! It uses OMRON switches, has a soft-touch surface, and is capable of an effective dpi of 4000.

It has a 1ms response time, is wired, and will let you program shortcuts as you’d like. The logo on the mouse can also be configured to show your favorite color, though you’ll have to pick it out of the 16.8 million options you’ll have, and you can even apply effects and patterns to your choice of hue! This is going to cost you around $55, and will definitely help your gaming experience if you are ambidextrous and want to change up your setup from time to time.

Tritton Katana HD 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset hopes to give you an edge

While having beautiful graphics in a game is a great pull factor for gamers, the right kind of audio quality to keep the game company is equally important – otherwise, there is no need for movies to move on from the silent era, don’t you think so? While speakers do a really good job in delivering the right kind of aural ambiance whenever you watch a movie or play a game, those who are involved in more competitive gaming might want to check out a pair of decent headphones to help you figure out the tiny nuances that might mean the difference between victory or defeat. Mad Catz has come up with its gaming headsets in the past, and this time around it has announced the Tritton Katana HD 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset.

The Katana HD from Mad Catz holds the distinction of being the first gaming headset in the world that draws its audio signal directly through HDMI so that it can deliver eight channels of beautifully uncompressed audio. Not only that, since it will be HDMI-powered, it should be able to play nice with just about every device – ranging from consoles to desktop computers, Blu-Ray DVD Players, and HD Set-Top Boxes, among others.

Best of all is, this is wireless – just in case you haven’t noticed.The HDMI base station will do the job of transmitting data to the headset, and chat either wireless via Bluetooth on the PS4 or wired to the gamepad with the Xbox One. As for the final killer blow, it would be DTS Headphone:X surround sound, a state-of-the art audio technology that faithfully recreates a spatially accurate 3D sound experience. We are talking about it delivering HDMI audio in the purest possible audio signal without any compression, which means there is no loss in quality. Any takers?

Lenovo and Razer team-up for gaming desktop prototype

Lenovo is definitely one of the stronger brand names out there in the market which carry a connotation of quality hardware, although there will always be pockets of discontent here and there. After all, there is no such thing as a perfect product, is there? Both Lenovo and Razer have decided to team up to cater for the gaming masses, resulting in their latest Lenovo Y Series gaming desktop prototype. Having revealed it at DreamHack Winter 2015, this first-ever gaming desktop prototype will roll out officially at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2016.

Both of the companies have announced that they will co-brand as well as co-market the special Razer Edition models of Lenovo’s Y series gaming devices, which will merge both the manufacturing, supply chain and channel relationships of Lenovo, alongside the immersive technology and deep expertise of Razer. The former happens to be the world’s number one PC maker, whereas the latter is a leading company in connected gaming devices and software for gamers.

I suppose one can say that this is a match made in heaven, as Razer complements Lenovo’s scale and broad appeal with a high-touch dedication to the gaming community. The Y series Razer Edition products will be available to Lenovo’s extensive global market as well as Razer’s core gamer communities, and this collaboration might just see the fast track for the development of new technologies emerge, where gaming experience enhancements are part of the deal. All future Lenovo Razer Edition products will be co-branded and reflect the edgy Lenovo Y series look and feel with iconic Razer elements such as customizable Chroma lighting effects, which means you will not find it out of place at all.

All in all, it is an excruciating wait until next January when CES 2016 kicks off in Las Vegas, Nevada. We do hope to be able to land some photos of it when we’re there.
