HTC Vive Review – the Holodeck you always wanted

HTC Vive Review – the Holodeck you always wanted

Virtual Reality is finally coming of age, and with Vive, HTC and Valve believe they have the finest and most flexible interpretation of next-generation gaming. A surprise announcement just a year ago, Vive aims to out-immerse Oculus' Rift by spreading VR throughout the room, rather than just putting it in a headset. The SlashGear team has been living with not one, but three Vive systems: read on for our verdict.

LucidSound LS30 Review : wireless gaming headphones that don’t look ridiculous

LucidSound LS30 Review : wireless gaming headphones that don’t look ridiculous

I'm not the sort of person who shies away from slime green headphones - but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a pair of muted grays and blacks now and again. With the LucidSound LS30 wireless gaming headphones, you'll find a pair of sound-blasters that don't look insane. And they sound pretty good, too. You'll be able to connect to basically any gaming system, including PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and your smartphone - and your PC, of course, but only unofficially.

Razer BlackWidow X line to disrupt gaming keyboard pricing with simplicity

Razer BlackWidow X line to disrupt gaming keyboard pricing with simplicity

Razer gaming keyboards aren't cheap - they're made to last, and they're not made to tend to the non-gamer crowd. With the new Razer BlackWidow X line of keyboards, the company is cutting down on price - not on production value, mind you, on price. The keyboards will be the same high-quality hardware you're used to with Razer, only now they'll be stripped of (almost) all of their bells and whistles.

Razer Blade Stealth Review: a true MacBook alternative at last

Razer Blade Stealth Review: a true MacBook alternative at last

The Razer Blade Stealth is not made for gaming - not on it's own, anyway. When it was first shown at CES 2016, the company suggested that it was meant to be part of a two-device combo, the other being a GPU dock that gives the laptop a massive boost in graphics power. The Razer Blade Stealth is launching on its own - but unless you'd planned on buying this laptop ONLY for laptop-centric gaming, that won't be a problem. Razer just out-designed itself.

Acer Predator 8 Review Part I: what no other tablet has

Acer Predator 8 Review Part I: what no other tablet has

When we first heard about the Acer Predator 8, it was clear they were going after the market dominated by the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet. This is a gaming tablet that rolls with an 8-inch WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixel) display and four front-facing speakers. Acer is not fooling around with this release. This is no "filler" tablet. In this device is one of the strangest - in a good way - pieces of Android hardware we've seen in a very long time.

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

The Acer Predator 17 is not just a good first-shot from a relatively new gaming line, it's a darn good notebook in and of itself. This laptop is large enough to give you a full gaming experience without being so bulky you'll never move it from your desk. This laptop is also clearly a gaming machine, but doesn't look like you decided on your hardware's look when you were young and foolish. In short - this is the gaming laptop you want if you're not afraid to go big, but don't want to drop cash on just any ol' run-of-the-mill flashy gamer unit.

Razer Wildcat Xbox One Controller Review

Razer Wildcat Xbox One Controller Review

Before now we've been using one extremely standard Xbox One wireless controller and one highest-end controller from Microsoft. Now that the Razer Wildcat has launched, it's time we found an entirely new gaming grounds to roll around in. Here we've got a device that costs the same as an Xbox One Elite Controller, but isn't as heavy. Here we've got a device that's lighter than the original Xbox One wireless controller, but whose industrial design has far more finesse.

Razer Seiren Pro Review

Razer Seiren Pro Review

The Razer Seiren Pro is a high-end microphone made for gamers - more specifically aimed at those that stream their gaming live for the masses. What you're going to see here is a microphone that looks and feels like a studio-level piece of equipment. But can it deliver in sound where it delivers in looks? This monster of a microphone is the sort of thing you buy when you get really serious about your online recording art - or when you just feel like tossing a piece of your paycheck at a piece of equipment that'll last you forever. Either way, fine audio, here we come.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 Review or: why it’s still the best

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 Review or: why it’s still the best

Today we're going to take a quick look at the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 and discuss why this device is the best tablet that money can buy. When we had a look at the original NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, it was very apparent that NVIDIA's tablet-making opponents were going to have a tough time competing with the features and overall quality of this top-notch piece of equipment. One year later and not one tablet can hold a flame to the SHIELD for its combination of quality and price. And now it's cheaper than it was before. What's going on here, you might ask?

Fallout 4 Review

Fallout 4 Review

America is an irradiated wasteland. Your environment in Fallout 4 is what Judge Dredd might refer to as the "Cursed Earth" part of North America. In it, your alternate reality is littered with extravagant industrial designs and the white bread attitudes of the 40's and 50's dashed into desolation and dreariness. You play the part of yourself in a third- or first-person perspective, tossed into a terrible, terrible place. You will take part in assuring the survival of the human race with a combination of attribute selections, the collecting of helpful materials, murdering mutants, and keeping your chin up!
