Razer Turret keyboard, mouse is finally ready for your lap

Back in CES 2015, Razer revealed a few gaming products geared for the living room, in contrast to its usual aim for desktops and laptops.

Sure, there will be CPU, GPU, and even RAM upgrades but they could be very minor in the long run. And yes, there will be 4K support, but this half next gen PS4 won't be making it a key focus. And no, it might not even be a refresh aimed at better support PlayStation VR, though the added muscle definitely helps.

Counter-Strike 1.6, with multiplayer, gets unofficial Android port

Counter-Strike 1.6, with multiplayer, gets unofficial Android port

We've seen a couple of classic PC games ported to mobile, including some on Android, but most of them either involved point-and-touch gameplay or not so much twitch action. Porting an FPS title, especially an iconic one like Counter-Strike, has probably far from the dreams of game studios and publishers. And so a lone developer by the name of Alibek Omarov, or a1batross on GitHub, took it upon himself to do what no one has done before: to make Counter-Strike 1.6 work on Android in all its glory, including multiplayer support.

Street Fighter V’s next patch will permanently address rage quitters

Street Fighter V’s next patch will permanently address rage quitters

Capcom released Street Fighter V back in February, and almost immediately a problem developed with rage quitters, or players who quit matches early — often because they're losing — instead of seeing things through to the end. A partial fix was detailed in March, which has seen the developer manually punish players who are detected to have high disconnection rates, but they also promised a more permanent solution in the future.

First Dark Souls 3 DLC won’t see release until this fall

Dark Souls 3, the latest in the challenging action-RPG series by developer From Software, was released earlier this week, and it's been well received thus far.

However, Dark Souls fans would be wise not to rush through all the game's content, as publisher Bandai Namco has just revealed that the first DLC won't be out until this fall.
