NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Review

If Nexus Player was Android TV's trailer, NVIDIA SHIELD is the platform's first big blockbuster. This piece of hardware exemplifies all of the high points of NVIDIA's hardware history, taking the Android TV operating system to a place that not only shows off everything Google's done, but adds on features that make this environment even better. In NVIDIA SHIELD you'll find your new best bet for a top-notch living room TV controller, gaming system, and media center all in one.

Origin PC CHRONOS Gaming Desktop Review

Origin PC CHRONOS Gaming Desktop Review

While Origin PC's Chronos comes as one of the most compact gaming PC builds in the industry, it still manages to thrill. While you'll see a whole lot more of the big builds like Origin's GENESIS sitting out in the open at gaming shows - or your most affluent gaming friend's basement, Origin's finesse in jamming the best components into the smallest of cases shines in the Chronos. While Origin also offers the "Omega" small-size gaming desktop, it's the slightly lovelier to behold Chronos we're reviewing today.

Minecraft Gameband Review

Minecraft Gameband Review

If you're in the mood for Minecraft and you move from machine to machine on a regular basis, you may want to have a peek at the Gameband + Minecraft. This unit has actually been in "soft release" mode for a few weeks - it first surfaced a few months ago, in fact, but today it's on blast courtesy of the folks at Gameband and Microsoft. In addition to being sent to none other than Larry Hyrb last week, you'll be seeing this piece of equipment appearing in stores across the United States immediately if not soon.

Mortal Kombat X Review: it has begun

Mortal Kombat X Review: it has begun

This is the Mortal Kombat you've been waiting for. Gone are the sweeping orb-like arenas of the 2000s, gone are the overly-complex schemes of the Kombat episodes of the lost era. Mortal Kombat X is a blood-stained dream come true: everything that made the original Mortal Kombat series a hit mixed with the graphics and technical finesse of today. While I'll always be a fan of the original lineup, even the new characters are fun to play and interesting to learn about - imagine that!

BenQ XL2420G G-Sync gaming monitor Review

BenQ XL2420G G-Sync gaming monitor Review

We've been using the BenQ XL2420G G-Sync monitor for the past several weeks and can safely say - without a doubt - this is easily one of the finest gaming monitors on the market. While we first said goodbye to V-sync forever all the way back in December of 2013 with our first G-Sync 101 and introduction, we've since seen a few monitors in the wild with the technology in-action. This beast had a lot to live up to after our look at the Acer XB280HK back in September.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

To suggest that Final Fantasy Type-0's international release was "long awaited" would be a gross understatement. The original game (pre-HD)'s demo was first released in August of 2011, back before the first whispers of an 8th-generation console release. Originally titled Final Fantasy Agito XIII for its non-HD PSP release, this game was eventually re-named Final Fantasy Type-0, so named for its original approach in battle in the Final Fantasy universe. Here we've got Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, a game that's been in development since mid-2012 for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

My review of the Razer Tactical Bag began in January of 2015, about a month and a half ago. The bag was delivered to me right in time for CES 2015 - easily the most action-packed week for me out of the whole year - for tech, that is to say. During the week I carry a lot of weight. In past years, I've brought bags that weren't up to the task. I've had bags whose handles rip partway through the week. I've had bags that didn't end up having nearly enough space or pockets for organization of oddities. The Razer Tactical Bag was up to the task.

The Falcon Backpack mini-Review

The Falcon Backpack mini-Review

When we reviewed the Falcon Northwest TLX gaming laptop, with it came a backpack. Not just any backpack - a custom-made Falcon Northwest backpack designed by the founder of the company Kelt Reeves. This backpack cannot be purchased on its own - it only comes with a TLX or DLX notebook from Falcon Northwest. But that doesn't mean we can't count it amongst the finest tech backpacks we've seen over the past several years.

Falcon Northwest TLX Gaming Laptop Review

Falcon Northwest TLX Gaming Laptop Review

At last an opportunity to take a peek at a real heavy-duty gaming laptop rolling with the latest in Intel (Haswell) and NVIDIA GeForce GTX (980M) technology. Here we're working with the Falcon Northwest TLX, a 7-pound notebook working with a Full HD 15-inch display and a fully customizable paint job. Can the creators of our favorite gaming tower convince us there's a need for full-powered gaming notebook finesse? How about if the laptop in question is painted top to bottom in custom Candy Red?

Das Keyboard 4C Review

Das Keyboard 4C Review

This is the newest in a line of high-end mechanical keyboard from Das Keyboard, the Das Keyboard 4C. This unit works with a tenkeyless design - which basically means that it drops the number pad found on many keyboards in favor of a slightly more sleek piece of equipment. In this keyboard we have what might be the best multi-purpose piece of equipment ever made by Das Keyboard, made for general business use as well as high-powered gaming. 87 keys in the USA and 88 keys in Europe - that's all you'll need to roll and press.
