High Quality is an understatement.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro with GameDAC Impressions

We have reviewed a lot of SteelSeries headsets over the past ten years on Co-Optimus. Over the course of that time we’ve seen the headset manufacturer from Chicago, IL improve on their designs over and over again. Steadily the quality has increased too with headsets now featuring a very premium feel. Their latest headset is no exception, adding to their Arctis lineup is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro with GameDAC; this is premium headset designed to compete directly with the likes of Astro Gaming’s A40 TX lineup. And compete they do.

Our Weekend In Gaming: A Steamy Summer

The Co-Opticrew is getting somewhat hot and bothered by a certain Steam Summer Sale, but not quite as much as you'd expect.  To be honest, our tepid reaction to all those sweet, sweet discounts is likely due to the fact that we've already bought everything we could possibly want (and more, Locke) over the last year or two of sales.  Combine that with the fact that Steam has distanced itself from the fun, creative events of years gone by, and you've got a recipe for a week that will likely pass without a huge amount of celebration.

The Best Co-Op Games on the 2018 Steam Summer Sale

The 2018 Steam Summer Sale is underway with an alien theme (cards and mini-game) to enjoy. As usual, just about the entire site is on sale right now which means you can get a lot of great PC games for a little bit of cash. We've combed through the titles, picked some from our Curator Store, and picked what we felt are the top 10 best deals in co-op gaming on Steam right now.

I suddenly have very strong feelings about Vivendi.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Sponsored By Ubisoft

While the Co-Opticrew's weekend plans certainly aren't dominated by Ubisoft games, they're getting their fair share of representation.  Maybe that's a testament to the lengthy support they've been offering for their franchises of late, or maybe it's a simple consequence of being knee-deep in the Summer Doldrums.  Either way, we'll be spending more than a few hours working our way through the best games France has to offer.

[E3 2018] - Microsoft Press Conference Recap

Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference wrapped up just a few hours ago, and there were some exciting things announced, like a new Halo title, Dying Light 2, and Gears 5. While Microsoft Studios is making the right moves towards "hey, come check out our excellent console," it was a bit disappointing that they didn't have more to say about what they were showing.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Rise Of The Electronic Three

While it's most likely out of mortal fear, none of the Co-Opticrew is acknowledging the "biggest event in gaming" this weekend.  Instead, we're choosing to stave off the panicked rush of video game news for as long as our minds will allow, which means we're diving deep into titles that really get the dopamine flowing.  Be it through loot, quests, or leaderboards, we're keeping focused on contentment before the flood gates inevitably open.

Super wide. Super immersive.

AOC AGON AG352UCG6 Ultrawide Gaming Monitor Impressions

It was almost five years ago that I first sampled the ultra-wide monitor space - a resolution that puts your aspect ratio at 21:9 over the standard 16:9 most monitors are today. Gaming and technology has progressed quite a bit since then - with resolution, design, and refresh rate all improving. So when I got the chance to check out the latest Ultra-Wide gaming panel from AOC, the 35” AG352UCG6, I jumped at the chance.

Who are those lil' scamps gonna fight next?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Battle Kidz

There's gonna be a lot of hootin', a lot of hollerin', and a lot of smack-down-drag-out fightin' this weekend.  The Co-Opticrew must have built up a lot of anger in the last week, cause we're either chasing battles, chasing monsters, or chasing sourcerors over the next couple days.  I suppose it's good to a let a little rage out every now and then, as long as it doesn't end in someone getting fired cause they "smashed every fax machine in the tri-county area".  Or, you know, whatever.
