Behold, the day of days has arrived: Kickstarted darling Ouya, the Android-powered video game console, is available to the public. It sold out on Amazon in just a few hours and I’ll bet that other retailers are finding their stocks a little low, too. I backed Ouya on Kickstarter shortly before the close of the nearly $8.6M funding round last summer, and I received my backer unit a couple of weeks ago. I’ve had some time to play several of the games and poke around the device a bit.
Last year we took a look at ROCCAT’s ISKU Illuminated gaming keyboard and we really did like it, especially for the fact that was not a mechanical keyboard, but was still very comfortable and had many features that gamers would enjoy. While the original ISKU did have blue backlit keys many gamers wanted customization over the color of the backlighting. This is where the ISKU FX comes in, it adds customizable backlighting to the ISKU keyboard enabling you to change the color to any color you would like and it also adds in some cool lighting effects. Read on as we take a look.

Many people do not have the right gaming gear when they first build or purchase their computer. A lot of the time they discover a game then get really into it. So then they will need to go out and buy that gaming mouse, keyboard and headset. GX Gaming makes a wide variety of gaming peripherals and has put three of their best products together into a single gaming kit called the Gaming KMH 100. It includes GX Gaming’s Imperator gaming keyboard, Maurus gaming mouse and Lychas gaming headset. Kits like this are great because they give you everything that you need in one simple package. I’m actually surprised more companies do not have kits like this. Read on as we take a look at all three products included in this kit.
When I got my hands on this mouse, I was thrilled to be doing the review. The German company ROCCAT is one of the top of the line gaming peripherals companies around today, very well known in Europe. Their USA launch started in 2012 and has been making a big impact with gamers. They started out with the Kone, then came the Kone[+], and now the Kone XTD, their flagship mouse. This mouse is powered by an 8200 DPI Pro Aim R3 laser sensor, a commanding 32-bit Turbo Core V2 72MHz ARM MCU processor, and the most advanced Tracking & Distance Control Unit around – all working in clockwork unison to deliver world-beating battle ability.
Back at the end of 2010 TT eSPORTS introduced the MEKA G1 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It was an instant hit with its Cherry MX Black mechanical key switches and extremely sturdy and solid design. At CES this year we were introduced to a whole new set of gaming keyboard from TT eSPORTS that featured backlit keys, something that was missing on many of TT eSPORTS early gaming keyboards. So today we have the TT eSPORTS MEKA G1 Illuminated Gaming Keyboard. This keyboard has the same features you saw in the original MEKA G1 like the 1000 Hz polling rate, built in USB hub and audio connections and 1.5m military grade cable. This new version also offers a dynamic pulse-break backlight system with 7 different illumination levels. Read on as we take a look!
As I have said before in a previous review, I don’t really care about the surface that I use when gaming but after using this mousepad for a week, I think my view has changed. First off the mousepad is HUGE and it is also extremely smooth. I’ve never personally seen anything like it. The Control-RX is geared towards low DPI gamers that need that ability to have precise movement. The smooth Lycra surface gives you zero drag when moving across the surface of the mousepad.
When you think of a mouse pad you think about the old floppy foam ones or even the textured plastic ones that were big in the early 2000’s. With those you have to worry about getting it dirty or spilling your drink all over it. Well worry no more my friends! This mousepad is washable, water resistant and scratch resistant because it is made from aluminum. That’s right, ALUMINUM! It is the first that I have ever seen and might just be the first one to hit the market.
If you are a serious gamer you are not using a wireless mouse. The main reasons are that it could lose battery or there would be some sort of interference with the wireless signal. While these might not be major issues when browsing the internet, but when you are about to get a headshot and it happens its a MAJOR problem. While wired mice are great they do have one drawback, the cord. In many cases the cord actually causes drag or may simply get in the way, which can affect your aim when gaming. The answer to this is what we know as a mouse bungee. It is a device that lifts this cord off of your desk which not only eliminates the drag, but gets it out of the way. The ROCCAT Apuri is not only a mouse bungee, but it also has 4 powered USB ports on it as well. Will you be adding this to your gaming arsenal? Read on as we take a look…
