The Pulsefire FPS Pro (henceforth, “FPS Pro”) has the body of the Pulsefire FPS (henceforth, “FPS”) with the internal features of the Pulsefire Surge (henceforth, “Surge”). Whereas the FPS was fully plug-and-play (i.e. completely functional out of the box, no software required), the Surge utilized the NGenuity software to offer more customization options like DPI settings, color settings, and macros. The FPS Pro is fully usable out of the box, but can also take advantage of NGenuity to customize the mouse. Since it features onboard memory, these settings can be saved in up to three gaming profiles directly on the mouse.

While I use the Sensei 310 for my day to day work, when it comes to gaming it lacks the comfort required for extended sessions. So I called up the Amazon Fairy and ordered the Rival 310 and Rival 600. Both mice are very similar in specs, with the shapes and features being slightly different.

The first thing I noticed while assembling the Champion Series chair that E-Win sent me was that quality is clearly their top priority. The materials are all tougher than you’d expect, the stitching is all strong and clean, and overall the chair feels solid. Assembly itself was pretty simple, and all the parts fit together easily and securely. Upon resting my keister on the Champion Series chair, I could immediately feel my body rejoicing as it was finally properly supported.

The summer heat is officially here to stay. For those of us lucky enough to game from air-conditioned accommodations, MMOs can provide a cool escape from the simmering heat outside. Luckily, there are summer updates to keep us occupied. This month for MMO Co-Opportunities, we look at an upcoming bonus event for the Elder Scrolls Online and new cont...

So, what did we get?  Unfortunately... no one was very explicit with purchases, but I'm sure that'll work itself out over the course of a July that'll be pretty scarce on new releases.  For the time being, we'll be enjoying the viking apocalypse, card battling our enemies, and figuring out how the Steam Controller actually works.  Check it out!

When we aren't sticking it right to the folks who sign our paychecks, we've got a slew of games lined up.  There's gonna be Lovecraftian dungeon delving, post-dissertation tabletop gaming, and expanded civilization building.  Check it out!

The GameDAC is the big addition to the Arctis lineup here, a small USB device about the size of a small candy bar, that sits between the headset and your PC. It’s very similar to the device we saw on the
Arctis 5, but more full featured. On the front is a volume control knob and a small monochrome LCD screen that displays various information. On screen and built in is a graphic equalizer with various presets, volume balancing between game and chat audio, and various configuration options to get the most out of your headset including enabling DTS X 2.0. Developers can even tap into the screen to display in-game information, for instance, Discord will display the name of the person currently speaking on the DAC. This is super convenient and I’m a big fan.

The other big upgrade is what’s in the actual headsets, the drivers for the speakers themselves. Sporting a frequency response of 10Hz to 40kHz, the Arctis Pro features one of the widest ranges of sound reproduction in the gaming headset market. For comparison the A40 line from Astro bottoms out around 15Hz and tops out around 30kHz. What does this mean? Deeper and more accurate lows and richer mids and highs. What this yields in reality is an overall more balanced sound experience, not something that’s too bassy or too tinny.
