As hardware becomes more power efficient and compact, Steam Machines and other small form factor systems are slowly beginning to invade the living room. As a result, PC gamers have found themselves spending more time on the couch, and playing games on the TV.
This transition to a more casual gaming environment has also sparked many peripheral makers to pursue the customized gaming controller market. Many of today’s hit titles such as Rocket League and Mortal Kombat X tend to fare much better with the controller.
Awhile back we had posted about our E3 hands on experience with the Stratus XL, SteelSeries’ answer to the developing [...]

It’s a fast paced, team based game based on the popular Defense of the Ancients (DoTA) map from Warcraft III and lately it’s become extremely popular.
How popular you may ask? Over the past couple years, LoL has seen so much growth that a number of LoL tournaments have had multi-million dollar prize pools, the highest ever seen for competitive gaming to date. Being popular of course also means that there’s lots of money to be made in licensed gaming products and when it comes to [...]
