Review – Killzone 3 (PS3)

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

Since Killzone’s first appearance back on the PS2, the game has sucked me in. I fell in love with the storyline, particularly the Helghast, and the admiration continued. I was fortunate enough to be able to pick up Killzone 3 on launch day, and I have been playing it almost nonstop since (no thanks to Minecraft). The game definitely improves on its predecessor in almost every aspect, and it provides a great storyline to stay involved in. Make sure you refill your ammo, and let’s get into my Killzone 3 review.

Review – Bulletstorm (Xbox 360)

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

Ah, Bulletstorm. Needless to say I was more than excited to pick up this new shooter from Epic Games and People Can Fly. Ever since the game was mentioned in Game Informer it started building hype, and now that I’ve been able to play through the game I can honestly say it’s lived up to it. Let’s slide on into the review.

Storyline

The storyline in Bulletstorm is a straightforward one, littered with witty comebacks and one-liners that will put you in stitches. We find ourselves taking the role of Grayson Hunt, an assassin (from a government group called Dead Echo) turned space pirate. After realizing that he is being used as a puppet by General Serrano to kill innocent people, Grayson takes his crew and disappears into the darkness of space. One night after binging himself drunk Grayson decides to take out General Serrano’s coveted ship, the Ulysses. After an ineffective pass at the ship using the forward cannons on Grayson’s own ship, he decides to use it as a bullet and sets it to blast through the Ulysses. In the process Grayson’s partner and friend, Ishi Sato becomes heavily damaged and hangs on to a thread of his life.

Review – Thermaltake Challenger Pro

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

Thermaltake has been branching out from their previous offerings related to PC cases, cooling and power supplies. We’ve already shown you a couple of their gaming peripherals in the Tt eSPORTS line. Today we have a second gaming keyboard, dubbed the Challenger Pro.

The Challenger line of keyboards currently comes in three flavors: regular, pro and Ultimate. We have the middle of the road, which only loses 2 macro keys, audio jacks and the ability to change the color of the backlight. Otherwise the Pro appears to be nearly identical to the Ultimate.

Some of the notable features include an adjustable red backlight, 10 customizable keys, a pair of USB 2.0 ports and a hand fan. That’s right, there is a removable fan that will blow air onto one of your hands. We’ll touch more on that later. Thermaltake also includes the necessary software for customizing your keys, along with a bit of on-board memory to store your profiles.

GameCube Desktop Organizers

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

Do you have trouble keeping your desk organized? Do you like GameCube and miss not having a need to use it anymore? After the Wii came into the picture, we lost a need for our beloved cubed shaped system. With so many a fancy squares lying about, it’s not a surprise that someone creative decided to make use out of them. There are now GameCubes that can help you keep your office space spick and span.

Seeing as the outdated consoles are just collecting space anymore, someone thought it would be better if they had a new purpose, and help us grieve the loss of new games for it. It was such a cool idea that they started selling it on Etsy under the name of GreenCub. The organizers have a magnet for staples, pencil and tack holders, and a tray for larger objects. They’ve even installed a little shelf for your phone or other compact gadgets. This is something that you could make at home, but costing only $39-49 a piece, I’d say it’s better to just buy the things.

N-Avenger Upgrades Your Xbox 360 Controller

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

Though this may kind of look like a space alien upon first glance, this mega controller actually makes access to various buttons easier and faster. Not to mention that it make hair triggers customizable and all of your buttons on the face of the controller.

This is not a whole controller, but an external shell that fits over an existing Xbox 360 gamepad to make things easier on its user. With adjustable levers, you use your middle fingers to control face buttons so you don’t have to rely solely on your thumb and index finger. The Avenger gives you access to all nine functions and can help you become a well-oiled machine of death. It has an introductory price of $39.99, but has a planned increase of going up to 59.99, so if you’re going to get one, the time is now.

Thermaltake has taken a dive into the gaming world with their new set of peripherals with the Tt eSPORTS series. This week I got to use the Thermaltake MEKA G1 Mechanical keyboard, which is one of two keyboards currently in the series. The MEKA is a great keyboard, with excellent response time, USB 2.0 inputs, and my favorite feature – “clacky” mechanical keys. Let’s get to the review.

The MEKA G1 comes equipped with two mounted USB 2.0 ports, as well as onboard headphone and microphone jacks to make connecting your peripherals faster and more efficient.  The keyboard comes with a removable palm rest, which I found very comfortable and stylish. Another great feature of the G1 is the heavyweight military-grade 1.5m braided cable that leads to a PS2 connector, as well as a USB connector. These features alone make the MEKA G1 more than a standard mechanical keyboard right out of the box.

The first up – the Thermaltake Black Gaming mouse. Let’s see how it performed.

Review – Splitfish FRAGFX SHARK Gaming Mouse

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

I was called into the office the other day, and was handed something I’d never laid eyes on before. What was handed to me was the Splitfish FRAGFX SHARK gaming controller for use with the PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac. I looked down in awe of just how cool the thing looked, and I imagine I looked back up with the eyes of the Nintendo kid on Christmas. I immediately rushed down to the gameplay area and set up to start testing the controller. The SHARK is meant to be used with FPS games mainly, and it does its job perfectly. Here’s my review of the Splitfish FRAGFX SHARK gaming controller, for your viewing pleasure.

Sharkoon X-tatic SX Headset Review

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

When you sit down for a nice gaming session, you have some choices for your audio. Specifically, do you want to have it coming out a set of speakers, or running through a headset? If you’re worried about bothering other people with the sound of gunfire and agonizing death, then a headset is an obvious choice. It also gives you the ability to talk with the other people in your party.

We try and test out a variety of hardware, catering to both the budget-conscious and those that want quality at all cost. Today we’ll be taking a look at the Sharkoon X-tatic SX, which falls into the former category. It’s not the first Sharkoon X-tatic that we’ve seen. The last one was an excellent piece of hardware, with a $160 price tag. The SX will set you back less than half of that, but does it deliver less than half of the quality?
