CM Storm Quickfire XT Mechanical Keyboard Review

When Cooler Master introduced its Devastator Bundle last year, it seemed like it was a neat gaming deal Cooler Master with its latest offering, the QuickFire XT introduces a mechanical keyboard at a really affordable price range. Join us as we check it out. And there is a contest to WIN this cool keyboard here. So read on!  Design & Build Quality As you can see, the QuickFire XT is a full-sized keyboard, with a standard 104-key count.

Our review sample is equipped with Cherry MX key switches. The photo shows those snazzy caps. There are also two extra replacement keycaps featuring the Cooler M...

Roccat Kone Pure Optical Review

Overview Even before taking the mouse from the box, I just had this feeling that this product had something special about it. I mean if you just take a look at the box you’ll immediately notice that a lot of work has gone in to that box. The box, other than being very good looking, also boasts of the various features that the mouse has and at the back of the box its said in about 8 languages. There is even an embossed logo for the 2D Titan wheel that this mouse has.  The folks over at Roccat try extremely hard in manufacturing peripheral devices for PC. From the pictures and video you can see that the box actually opens up to showcase the look and feel of the Kone Pure Optical. The mouse is covered in a plastic casing, but the case is cut out in the shape of the mouse, therefore you ...

SteelSeries Rival Optical Mouse Review

If you’re looking for a gaming mouse that nails the fundamentals but forgoes the superfluous, look no further than the Steelseries Rival.  Steelseries’ latest mouse is the first purely right-handed mouse to come from the company in quite some time, eschewing the lefty-friendly ethos the company’s fostered for so long. If you’re right handed, that’s okay, because the Rival is a decidedly comfortable mouse to use, provided you’re one of those who rest his hand on the mouse instead of opting for a claw grip. Design & Precision As far as looks go, it’s a simple yet elegant design, but don’t let the simplicity of its design fool you though. The mouse comes with a silky-smooth matte finish that negates sweaty hands, while the sides of the mouse are padded with a nifty non-stick rubberised su...

Batman Arkham Origins Review

Batman: Arkham Origins is a prequel of the series & for Batman himself. It picks up two years into Batman’s crimefighting crusade, at a point where Gotham City’s active criminal element has finally realized the threat of the Dark Knight. On Christmas Eve of all nights, Batman discovers that a crime lord named Black Mask has put out a contract on his head, calling in eight assassins from around the world to put him down. The plot setup serves as an excuse for Warner Bros. Montreal to leave those streets barren of life. The game explains via incidental dialogue that the chaos caused by the appearance of these powerful assassins has led to citizens bolting themselves indoors.   Gameplay: After the first 10 minutes of playing Batman: Arkham Origins, my doubts towards anoth...

GTA V Review

Yes the most awaited game review is here. Well we’ve not been able to share it justifies that we’ve loved the game so much 😉 GTA V kickstarts in heist mode, with you and your crew already earning wanted stars speaks pretty loudly about Rockstar’s intentions here. There’s no consequence to the game proper though, because this fauxtorial takes place years earlier than when you’ll settle into the greater world of Los Santos and Blaine County. Rockstar’s one of the biggest additions to V, is character-swapping — a feature that can generally be used at any given time in the game, but is most fun and dynamic while each character is part of an event in V’s rich and expansive narrative. One such event transpires during your prologue, but like the rest of this review I’ll keep it spoiler-free...

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Review

The story starts with you, William Carter, tasked with the delivery of a mysterious package. It slowly builds to a satiating climax a bit inspired from Bioshock 2. Outside the narrative, the switch to third-person works brilliantly. It’s like being a soldier in XCOM, albeit during the agency’s early years. The game revolves around combat, which is well thought out. A radial wheel handles commands, slowing time, but not stopping it. Giving orders and manipulating the environment is a must, as flanked units take extra damage – the brilliant enemy AI will flank you, too. The shooting feels satisfying. The more fun skills are saved for the player: summoning a ball of alien goo that seeks out enemies like an attack dog, mind-controlling even the biggest enemies and turning them against th...

Saints Row IV Review

The Saints Row series has incrementally evolved over the years from being a game similar to Grand Theft Auto, into a game offering the craziest and wackiest open-world adventures this console generation has to offer. Saints Row: The Third threw the open-world video game rulebook out of the window of a moving car, then Saints Row IV reveals a giant hand with the middle finger firmly pointed skywards. However, with a game that appears to give you everything just imagine being in the shoes of the President of the United States. The visuals are one of the few aspects that lets Saints Row IV down. The developers haven’t been shy about the fact that it runs on exactly the same engine as the last game no tweaks, nothing. A few changes to gameplay would have been welcome as now it perhaps looks mo...

Grid 2 Review

A bit late to share our review, Grid 2 is not as famous in India as its contemporaries like Need For Speed & Forza  but still I was pretty eager to get my hands on the GRID 2. Though always a lover of racing simulators I am seriously amazed. Alright, Codemasters have definitely opted to focus on arcade racing – that is clearly evident – but they’ve also succeeded in creating a racing title which is multi-faceted, full of surprises, and just downright fun to play. Grid 2 is all about the racing. Career mode has no unnecessary fluff, presenting you with a list of races and then handing you the keys. There’s a backbone tying it all together – you’re competing in a new racing franchise and must accrue fans in order to boost your reputation – but th...
