Since I was a kid, some of the best PC gaming accessories have come from Logitech. It seems like they’ve always taken PC gaming seriously. I’ve been spending some time trying out the different accessories in Logitech’s G-Series lineup of PC hardware build specifically with gamers in mind. It is certainly a broad product range, with options for those on a budget, those looking for a premium experience, and everyone in between. Across the board no matter which G-Series accessory I look at it was interesting to see a very consistent focus on an edgy ‘gamer’ style, and core features gearing this stuff ideally for gaming in mind.

As a kid taking piano lessons, I always looked at the foot pedals on pianos and organs and thought those would be perfect to control my computer. It would make me feel like some sort of cyberpunk phantom of the opera. That memory came flooding back when I got to test out the Stinky Footboard PC foot controller recently. Think of it like a large custom-mapable footpad. You place a foot (or feet) on it and control it by shifting weight on it to the left, right, forward, and backward.


Gunnar Optiks Vayper Gaming Glasses Review

The first time I came across Gunnar Optik's Gaming Glasses I honestly wasn't sure what to think.  Meant to cut down on eye strain, headaches, double vision and dry eyes while gaming, Gunnar's capabilities seemed a little too good to be true.  However, as someone who used to get bad eye strain from playing hours upon hours of games growing up, I couldn't help but wonder, 'what if?'.

If your audio experience is really important to you, then the Belkin Thunderstorm can help solve that issue once and for all. It transforms the iPad into a great mobile cinematic home theatre experience, perfect for movies and games.

Review: Corsair Vengeance K60 Gaming Keyboard

Corsair K60_title-1.jpg


If you are old enough to remember the early days of personal computing, you’ll remember that back in the day keyboards (such as the classic IBM Model M keyboard, which is still in production!) were built like tanks, and had a tactile typing experience that can’t be matched by the cheap keyboards that come with modern computers. Most modern keyboards, including many gaming ones, use a rubber dome under the key, which just doesn’t give you the same feel as proper mechanical keys.


Recently, though, mechanical keyboards have made a bit of a comeback, especially for gaming, where they can provide the feel, fast reaction times, and sensitivity gamers need. The latest company to bring out a mechanical gaming keyboard is Corsair, well known for their high-performance RAM and power-supplies. Their Vengeance K60 FPS Gaming Keyboard uses Cherry MX Red switches for the keys, and has striking red contoured, textured, and rubber coated WASD keys sitting on a very attractive brushed aluminum chassis. I’ve been using one for a few months now as my personal keyboard, so let’s see what I think after the jump.
