CM Storm Pulse-R Review

Design The aluminium headset sorta speaks for itself when it comes to looks and design. The white-LED lighting really stands out in a very subtle way and isn’t too much “in your face” kind of things. It definitely looks pretty solid and the visible screws on each ear piece add to its sturdy-look. The Pulse-R is equipped with a detachable noise-cancelling microphone for voice chat so that you don’t have to yell across the room while you’re trying to fend off your opponents. The tip of the microphone lights up too, which again adds to the subtle look of the hardware. The headset itself is quite stunning and does grab a lot of attention, but its the skills that you need to set yourself apart from the other gamers, not your machinery. The cushioned ear cups are a ...

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

 Gameplay Let’s not ignore that Ground Zeroes is short but it packs the punch and if you are a perfectionist then it is close to 10+ hours of gameplay to say the least. An opening cutscene, which is almost exactly the same as the original announcement trailer, sets the scene. Chico and Paz – which you’ll remember from Peace Walker– are in a prison camp, and you’ve gone in to rescue them. This is Kojima, so the story is more intricate than that, but I won’t spoil it for you. All I will say is that it ties together all the trailers you’ve seen for Metal Gear Solid V, and it has me waiting for the full title. In a first for the series, Ground Zeroes is billed as open world, though in truth that’s a little generous. The entire prison camp map is open from the start, with the ability to approac...

Thief lands on your console full of potential, but loses the plot midway

We were really excited with the build-up to this game and we’re a bit let down with the fact that Thief is a game that fails to step into the shoes of its predecessor in some ways. It is a game that lands on your console full of potential, but loses its steam midway. There are good things about this game, and they bear mentioning. This is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic Thief series, which is given a lot of credit for inventing the modern stealth game. So all you guys who have love stealth games, you should be excited 🙂 A visual update has been made which makes the game look wonderful when it’s running, though we have not checked out the first version of the game since it was release quite a long time back. The movement of the main character Garret, looks and feels great, and he ...

Archaic Sigil Gaming T-Shirts

So this is our first review for clothing items. Of course we’re a gaming site, so there’s got to be a gaming element to the clothes. And that is exactly what Archaic Sigil does. Archaic Sigil is a fairly new fan art store which is based in Delhi. It is an online apparel store that was started by 3 gamers whose main focus was to create apparel which was centered around gaming, comics, cartoons and anime to name a few.The store adds new products to its collection every month. Delivery time for products is about 3-4 working days, which includes shipping charges. Content The people at Archaic Sigil spare no expense when it comes to packaging their products. The t-shirt we got from them was pretty well packed in a neat brown box with their logo printed along the front of the box. Th...

CM Storm Quickfire XT Mechanical Keyboard Review

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...
