Razer Dragon Ball FighterZ Fightsticks has lots of balls

But today’s gaming devices are not just more delicate, their gamepads don’t exactly give you the “feel” of dominating your opponent through convoluted combos.

Legrand Radiant wall plate has a vertical Qi wireless charger

Although not exactly talked about as much, wireless charging is slowly starting to be a common feature in high-end smartphones (unless you ask OnePlus).

Back in March, I reviewed the G703 and G903 gaming mice, which both come with all the bells and whistles: RGB lighting, Powerplay support, HERO sensors, and LIGHTSPEED technology. I found them to be excellent mice, and I said at the time that they made the best argument yet for ditching your wired gaming mouse. With both of them, however, there was one big hang up: Price.
