Hyper X Pulsefire Core Review

I have floated back and forth between console and PC gaming over the years. While focusing on the PC field and adding to my Steam library more I have found that the hardware is as important as the games themselves. Thankfully, the HyperX Pulsefire Core does a wonderful job as an entry level piece of hardware for those entering, or reentering, the PC field.

SteelSeries Apex M750 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Impressions

It's been sometime since I've reviewed a keyboard for Co-Optimus, with my last official review actually being the one I'm reviewing today's predecessor. But since that time I had fully switched to a Razer Black Widow Chroma that served me well for a number of years. But like my SteelSeries mouse impressions piece stated, the software and glitches became too numerous to stay invested in the Razer ecosystem so I dove in headfirst to an all SteelSeries lineup. The final piece of that puzzle is the SteelSeries Apex M750 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard.

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.

A review for one of the three headsets in the brand new Arctis line

Steelseries Arctis 3 Headset Review

Steelseries is a big name in headsets, so when they told me they were launching a radically different line, I was intrigued. After using the Arctis 3 in my daily work and gaming routine for over three weeks, I’ve been impressed with the performance, though the experience comes with its own unique, and sometimes annoying, quirks.

PC Gaming...IN YOUR LIVING ROOM

Alienware Steam Machine and Steam Controller Review

As a life-long PC gamer, the concept of a Steam Machine to me seems unessential. But in talking to someone who’s been a traditional console gamer, the appeal becomes a little more clear. It's a gateway that breaks down a traditional high barrier of entry. It provides a simple solution to access a library of thousands of PC titles with minimal knowledge of hardware and software.  A Steam Machine can be manufactured by anyone, in fact, you could technically build your own. Today we’re going to look at an offering from Alienware.

Our impressions and tests of the drive.

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?
