The Arctis line from Steelseries, a new line of headsets designed from the ground up to refocus on minimalist yet gamer-driven emphasis, launched this fall. While the Arctis 3, Arctis 5, and Arctis 7 have increasingly specialized features, each one is designed to boast the same quality sound. The unit I received was an Arctis 3, the set with the most basic features and lowest price tag of the three. Despite being the least expensive, this price-point ($80) still puts the unit on the high end of mid-cost units. The Arctis 3 comes with the headset and three separate cords. There’s a universal cord which plugs into the headphones and can then plug into a variety of audio out adapters, two of which come with the headset: a short 4-pole adapter (which can plug into controllers, phones, etc.) and a long 3.5 mm analog adapter that can plug into the audio and mic ports of a PC. Compare this with the Arctis 5 ($100 with USB connection and RGB LEDs) and Actis 7 ($150 for USB connection and wireless option).

But, dear reader, there's no reason to fret.  The Sultan of Snow may control the temperature, but he can never keep you from closing the blinds, pouring a nice mug of cider, and cuddling in front of an LCD screen with the lover, pet, or body pillow of your choosing.  So, this winter, as you're watching Netflix and whispering sweet nothings into Dakimakura's ear, spend a moment to appreciate all that you have, and maybe hurl a silent curse at Grandfather Frost.

This new title won't be a spiritual successor to any of Turtle Rocks' previous IPs. While it will have the familiar "moment-to-moment gameplay... with a huge focus on co-op FPS" that rocketed Left 4 Dead to such popularity, the team also wanted to distance themselves from the zombies and post-apocalyptic themes of their past work. It will also sounds like the game will be free-to-play. Even if Evolve Stage 2 (or Evolve) didn't pan out quite as the studio hoped, they did learn some lessons from it all.
