As much as I’ve grown to appreciate Corsair products since they moved on from their overclocking-focused, enthusiast-grade memory days, I’ve always had reservations about some of their peripherals, and specifically their mice.
Still, I believe that their best days are ahead of them, and that’s easily demonstrated by the incredible K95 Platinum keyboard I reviewed a while back. At the time, it was the first Corsair peripheral that truly embodied what I had always hoped their peripherals would come to be. It’s a truly premium product that, in addition to its excellent functionality, boasts unmatched build quality, design and meticulous attention to detail.
Bethesda Softworks is turning out to be a surprisingly prolific source of Nintendo Switch games, announcing versions of both Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus for the portable/not-so-portable hybrid console thing. That means frantic demon slaying and Nazi decapitations will be joining the eagerly awaited orc-in-progress Skyrim, which lands on 17 November.
A group of executives from EA sat around a table discussing strategy and what games to give away for free.
“Why not the season pass for Star Wars Battlefront?” suggested one of them. “With the sequel just around the corner, we don’t stand to make much from future sales. And gamers will need to buy the base game to play the free content, which should bring in more money.”
“Let’s make it so!” yelled Jerry the intern. No one liked Jerry the intern, because he always, and on purpose, used the wrong references when they spoke about Star Wars. He thought it was funny. It wasn’t.
Making up for the somewhat… misdirected Wii U, Nintendo’s new little-console-that-could has game fans frothing with joy, and people are snapping these things up as fast as Nintendo can pump them onto store shelves. And over in the UK, Team Mario is now selling faster than Team Master Chief for the first time since the original Wiipocalypse in 2006.
Ubisoft has announced an open beta for the upcoming Ghost War team-based competitive versus multiplayer mode, coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC from 21 – 25 September. The timing couldn’t be better – Ghost Recon: Wildlands’ campaign is high octane stuff, but it’s getting tired. Fast.
And it’s probably my fault because my power level isn’t even 270. I’m the worst, you guys. In the meantime, though, Destiny 2 PS4 clan The Legend Himself – previously responsible for almost finishing Destiny‘s Wrath of the Machine raid before everybody else – finished the Leviathan raid before everybody else, proving that persistence wins out eventually, Tarryn, and you can totally do this too.
Late last night, Apple had their Special Event gathering at the new Steve Jobs Theater at their new head quarters in Cupertino, California. Yes, the one that looks like a spaceship landed in a forest. It boasts a spinning elevator. No, you read that right. An elevator that spins. I can only imagine how much your brain explodes when you get in it. Anyway, as expected, Apple launched some new products during the special event, and at least one of them, the iPhone X, is dividing Apple fans down the middle.
So, this is awkward. Destiny 2 developer Bungie has removed what looks very much like a “kek” logo – I’ll explain that in a moment – from a piece of armour in the game, prompting inevitable drama about… Nazis. You can’t make this stuff up.
