DARIUSBURST: Another Chronicle EX is a side-scrolling shoot 'em and the latest game in Taito's long-running Darius series. The actual arcade game this one is based on utilizes a dual-monitor setup. PlayStation and Switch don't support dual monitors, so Another Chronicle EX presents the large gameplay field in a letterboxed format. The game is totally playable like this, but I sure hope a Steam version of Another Chronicle EX with dual monitor support gets released someday.

Rumors of a 4K-ready Nintendo Switch have been swirling for a few years now, rumors that became something of a tornado just before E3 this year. E3 2021 came and went, though, with no announcement of new hardware. Today, Nintendo has finally announced the next model of Switch, the Nintendo Switch (OLED model),  whose primary enh...

In my infinite quest to find the perfect PC gaming headset, I've gotten pretty close to perfection, but always came up short. ROCCAT's latest entry into the mix, the ROCCAT Syn Pro Air, seems a worthy contender on the surface. Our latest look dives below the back of the box to see if this is the headset to use in your da...

Our database meanwhile saw the inclusion of around 200 new entries this month. That makes more than 3.500 additions to our database in the last twelve months since our new Database Manager took the job. We don't know if we should find that impressive or be embarrassed that we were missing so many games. We are of course thankful for all his work and are looking forward to him further solidifing our claim of offering the best database for co-op games out there.

The Kone Pro uses ROCCAT’s fast Titan Optical Switch technology with the signature feel of the brand’s Kone PC gaming mouse design. This design reminds me a lot of one of the most comfortable mice of all time - the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer. It's a right handed design with a thumb rest and high gentle curves that fit into your palm. Weighing in at just 66G the mouse is ridiculously light and fast. Picking it up its almost shocking.

The Logitech Pro X Wireless headset is built out of a mixture of leather, metal, and plastic and overall as a premium feel to it. It's surprisingly light, but feels really solid. It looks like a pro-level headset without the crazy gaming design elements like LED lighting or gaudy glowing logos. Inside you'll find 50mm mesh drivers for a 20Hz-20KHz frequency response.

And our database? Well: Another month, another 210 new entries both upcoming as well as from the distant past. And if it seems suspicious to you that quite a few of those entries start with the letter "B" don't think too long about it. Our Database Master assures us that this is just a coincidence and that he most definitely isn't working through another list he found with co-op games we are missing in alphabetical order.

I’m a big proponent of HyperX’s Alloy mechanical keyboard line. Over almost five years, I’ve reviewed a lot of variants of the Alloy, and I’ve never come across one I haven’t been impressed by. A lot of this is probably because HyperX knows what they’re doing right with the Alloy, and new variants don’t dev...
