Tis’ The Season: $5K Gold-Plated Xbox Christmas Ornaments

What could go better with that shiny new Xbox One X than some Christmas ornaments? And nothing says Merry Christmas like a gold-plated ornament made to look like an Xbox One controller.

Thankfully, Microsoft hasn’t completely lost their minds, because rather than selling these gold ornaments to people with more money than sense, they’re giving them away as prizes on their Facebook page. Four to be exact, and they’ll be given away within the coming weeks.

Though I’m not sure where the $5K figure comes from, is that how much Microsoft is giving you in addition to the ornament, or is that how much they’re worth. I mean, if they’re only gold-plated then you could probably only get $17 and an old pair of slightly damaged speakers from your local pawn shop.

Anyway you could always get a non-fancy white ornament from Microsoft, but those probably aren’t worth $5,000.

Buzzfeed Made a Card Game That’s Basically An Awkward Version of Cards Against Humanity

Buzzfeed, those people that steal content online and repost it as their own, have come up with their own card game that steals a little from Cards Against Humanity and a little from Truth or Dare. It’s kind of original, but really stupid. Let me explain.

The game is called Social Sabotage, and it’s pretty much exactly like CAH in the sense that there are situational cards, and people play their own funny cards to complete the sentence. The only difference is that you’re supposed to do what ever embarrassing thing people come up with. For example, you play a “Send your mom…” card and the other players decide to play “A video of you twerking.” And you’re supposed to actually do that.

It’s a fine idea, but yea, no one’s gonna do what the card tells them. Oh, let me post some ridiculously awkward thing to this girl I like, or you know, we could just watch Stranger Things season 2 and throw this game away in the garbage, that’s an idea too.

Other than putting yourself in a horrifically awkward post, there’s not much humor in the actual cards themselves, so just play Cards Against Humanity.

$25 will get you Social Sabotage at Walmart, or a Cards Against Humanity base set on Amazon. The choice is yours.

Razer Announces D.Va Themed Headset and Mouse

Razer, the now major phone smartphone brand, has announced a headset and computer mouse in the style of D.Va from Overwatch at Blizzcon 2017. Now, don’t sit here and tell me you don’t play Overwatch, everyone plays this game, it’s the digital equivalent of heroin.

The headset, modeled after the one the mech pilot Hana Song wears, has a range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz, 40 mm drivers, Neodymium magnets and weighs a total of 322g. Remember, D.Va was a professional gamer in South Korea before signing up to fight for her country. Yea, this game really is for nerds.

The mouse is rated as being “tournament-grade”, and I’m sure it’s great, but let’s be real here, the headset is the real star of the show.

The headset will retail for $79, and will be available soon. Oh, and the mouse is available now for $59.

I want that headset, It’ll complete my D.Va cosplay. Now, I won’t cosplay outside, but I will wear it around the house and stare at myself in the mirror.

Razer Made A Webcam With A Ring Light For Streamers

Razer knows there’s big potential in catering to streamers. Those with the largest audiences list their gaming setup and many of their fans will go out and buy the same gear as their favorite streamers. And while Razer already has some of the best peripherals, like gaming mice and mechanical keyboards, they’ve fallen short on other products such as quality microphones.

Now, they’ve hoping to change that with two new products, the Siren X, a zero-latency USB microphone built to dampen vibrations, and the Kiyo, a 1080p webcam with a ring of 12 LED’s for much better selfie lighting. The brightness of the lights can even be changed between 12 different levels.

I just love ring lights, they add so much to an image with so little effort, and the Kiyo could be a great camera for streamers who travel, because they’ll always have that great lighting. Both the Kyio and Siren X are $99 and are available now through Razer.

I guess the Kyio could also be used for porn streamers, just saying.

How To Know Which VR Glasses You Should Buy

Tattooed guy with VR Glasses

Everybody has easy access to the virtual world these days. Thanks to the surge of various VR glasses in the market from both huge tech companies (Google, Samsung, and HTC) and from small tech brands. You can even get a pair for less than $10! Owning one isn’t really the problem now; it’s which pair of VR glasses to get.

Before you go get the most expensive and the latest VR glasses just because you think it’s the best, here are the things that you need to ask yourself:

How will I use my VR glasses?

Will you use it just to watch movies on using your smartphone or do you want to use it with your PlayStation VR? HTC Vive is perfect for movie streaming, but for console gaming, the PlayStation VR is the winner.

Is comfort your top priority?

You may still want to go for another round of games, but if your neck is easily strained with all the weight, you may want to go wtih an extra slim and lightweight one like the ACCUPiX Mybud.

How much is your budget?

If you’re after a high-end VR, you need to prepare somewhere between $400 to $800. But if you want an affordable option, which is still one of the overall best for virtual reality, the Samsung Gear VR Headset is highly recommended.

Gears 4 just came out, the Xbox One S is the perfect holiday present, Project Scorpio is waiting in the wings…and all you need is a really great gaming headset to go along with your adventures.
