Impressions from the Bandai Namco Event Summer 2015

Tales of Zestiria and Dark Souls III Preview

Last week, I headed over to the Bryant Park Hotel to attend the Bandai Namco NYC Showcase Event. There they had a ton of their upcoming releases for the next few quarters. Of course, I was interested in the titles featuring co-op, which meant I spent a lot of time talking to the representatives for Tales of Zestiria and Dark Souls III.

OWC 1TB Hybrid Upgrade Kit for Xbox One Review

Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launched with just 500GB of disk storage. And while this might have sounded like an enormous amount to owners of the previous generation of consoles, the jump from these older boxes in terms of graphical fidelity meant this space would only be enough for a dozen or less games. We’re now just starting to see systems ship with 1TB internally. If your’re an early adopter you can add storage yourself to you Xbox One simply by plugging in a USB 3.0 drive. But which one do you choose?

SteelSeries Apex M800 Impressions

If you read our coverage on the Logitech G910 Orion Spark mechanical keyboard, you probably already know I was testing it against a few other mechanical gaming keyboards. One of those is the recent entry from SteelSeries - the Apex M800, which resembles the design of their popular Apex keyboard. Instead the mechanical variety uses custom switches to ditch that mushy membrane feel and deliver the clicky clacky sound that tells everyone in your office you’re getting some serious work (gaming) done.

Blue Yeti and Mo-Fi Impressions for Streaming

We've had a podcast on Co-Optimus now for close to 6 years, and its only this year that we've recently reformed it as more of a streaming show. That said, almost since the beginning we were using a Blue microphone for our audio recording. While we started with their Snowball lineup, it's their recent Blue Yeti Desktop Microphone that really ups the features and quality.

I Dreamed a Dream of Saints in Hell

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell Impressions

One of the hallmarks of console gaming in recent years is the rise of the "HD" remake, and with the new generation of consoles, the new trend is to offer games from last generation with improved performance and a handful of graphical upgrades.

Astro A38 Review

Astro A38 Headsets Show Improvement After Beta

It's been sometime since we launched our initial impressions of the Astro A38 Headsets. Astro Gaming tried something unique for a hardware launch with them - they decided to beta test their product with consumers before calling it final. What exactly did that entail? Consumers got 50% off the retail price and the ability to upgrade to the final version by trading in their beta headsets towards the purchase price. We've been using the A38's now for a few weeks and here's what we've found.

Sumo Omni Reloaded is your Flexible Gaming Chair

Sumo is a brand of furniture that's been around now for almost ten years. They are famous for their line of giant bean bag chairs. We've looked at both their Couple and Emperor lineup, and it's easy to see how a giant overstuffed "bean bag" chair could make a nice addition to your gaming room. These aren't the kind of bean bag chairs you'd find in Wal-Mart, they are quality pieces of furniture made with furniture grade stuffing. Today we're looking at their latest product, one of the few that isn't a bag style chair. It's called the Sumo Omni Reloaded and the idea behind it is versatility.

Today the company have released a new version of it, the Elgato Game Capture HD60. It's a minor update to an already great product with the biggest improvement being the ability to capture 1080p 60fps video.
