ROCCAT is back with an new gaming mouse in its Kone lineup, first introduced in 2007. The new Kone Pro though is taking design cues from the recent Burst Pro Extreme. What sets this apart from other mice out there? Let's fine out.
The headset wars continue on Co-Optimus. In our quest to find the ultimate gaming headset for your co-op communication needs, we're working through the ever growing list of options. Up next is from a manufacturer we haven't looked at in quite some time - Logitech. Their Pro X Wireless Headset is a fully featured DTS set of cans with a Blue technology microphone to capture crisp chat. Let's dive in.
After the insane month that was March full of new releases, the publishers and developers allowed us coop-fans at least a bit of rest in April with "only" around 35 games hitting the store fronts - many of them smaller indie titles with interesting concepts and/or visuals. Definitely worth to take a look down below at which gems you may have missed.
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...
Did you see that?! Holy Moly! More than 70 (!) new co-op releases across various platforms in March - including some very high profile titles like Monster Hunter Rise, Balan Wonderworld, It Takes Two as well as the start of the Open Beta (PC-only) for Magic: Legends and the long-awaited co-op patch for Watch Dogs: Legion. It's safe to say that there was (and is) something for everyone with their friends and family to enjoy.
As is becoming increasingly common in this era of gaming, the Co-Opticrew's weekend plans are largely preoccupied with sequels. Many companies these days seem content with adopting the "if it ain't broke" mode of thinking, and you know what, it looks like it's paying off for them. Not that I'm complaining, though. Good games are good games regardless of how high the number is in their title.
To celebrate the awesome lineup of co-op games coming to us in 2021, we're hosting a Steam giveaway thanks to the developers over at Windwalk Games, a development team of former Riot Games devs working on an upcoming co-op experience. More to come on this soon! *hint hint*
The Co-Opticrew is reaching into our usual bag of tricks this weekend, with co-op shlooters and co-op sloopers taking up a fair amount of our time. What's this, though? It appears a few of our esteemed staff are also diving back into the realm of wooden tokens and translucent card sleeves for a couple days of board game goodness. We can only wish these adventurous souls (and their wallets) the best of luck. They'll certainly need it.
February was a busy month. More than 50 co-op offerings across all platforms and many genres were released making it hard to choose which ones to buy and enjoy with our friends. No, "all of them" is sadly not an option both in terms of available money and time.
Once again, the inexorable march of time has ferried us to another weekend, and instead of dwelling on our own mortality, the Co-Opticrew has chosen to distract ourselves with - you guessed it - video games. All things considered, it's not a bad way to go about spending our time. Who knows what we'd be up to if not for co-op games? We could be obsessing over far-fetched conspiracy theories or, even worse, mumble rap. The mind shudders at the thought.
We have been blessed with another appearance by everyone's favorite duo: Saturday and Sunday. In accordance with Co-Opticrew tradition, we offer our plans to the ether in the hope that they shall be fulfilled. Will they, though? I suppose that's up to us. As the old saying goes, "The Weekend helps those who help themselves."
By my count, we are approaching close to 100 headsets evaluated on this site in our 13 years of existence. Needless to say we've seen all makes, models, and varieties - from wired stereo headsets to fully wireless surround sound monsters. I'm at the point now where I know exactly what features I want to hear in a pair of cans for my ears. And let me tell you - the perfect headset still doesn't seem to exist.
