HyperX Cloud MIX Wired Gaming Headset + Bluetooth Review

The Cloud MIX is an intersection between the well-established HyperX Cloud headset line and a new venture into mobile-focused gaming, making the name “MIX” an apt descriptor.In its outward appearance, the MIX is fairly inconspicuous in appearance, which is definitely a plus since it’s being marketed for its out-and-about friendliness. Colorwise, it’s almost completely black with a light gray HyperX logo located on the faceplate of each earcup. The headband and earcups are cushioned with the signature HyperX combination of memory foam covered by a smooth leatherette surface. The right earcup hosts the Bluetooth power button (which also functions as the pairing button when held down for five seconds), a volume up and volume down button, and charging port. The left earcup contains the port where the cord plugs into if you want a wired connection as well as a Bluetooth multi-function button. This button pauses music tracks and answers calls with a single press or skips forward a track with a double press.

about X hours ago from

Tesla vs Lovecraft, the top-down twin stick shooter from developer 10tons, has been festering in our collective stomachs since its release in January of 2018.  Its nutrients have almost been fully absorbed at this point, so it's a good thing the game's next course is coming our way in early December."For Science!" serves as TvL's first paid DLC and, at a $5 price point, adds the following to the base content:Want to see it in the form of a fancy moving picture?  Check out the trailer below:

For The King Is Getting Free DLC On November 21st

about X hours ago from

For The King's unique blend of JRPGs, strategy games, and roguelikes has intrigued the staff at Co-Optimus to no end. Fortunately for us, there's a new batch of free DLC coming later this month, so all that time spent staring at the game, mouths agape, will hopefully come in handy."Into the Deep", which arrives on November 21st, takes players on a quest to investigate and subsequently clash with the Fishfolk inhabiting the local waters as they attempt to resurrect their Kraken God.  Naturally, this aquatic deity wishes to flood the entire world and consume any survivors, so it's probably for the best that our heroes intervene.  Check out the trailer below for a glimpse of the DLC in action."Into the Deep" adds tons of extra content to the game, including new enemies, encounters, and the "Guns" weapon class.  The seafaring adventure will probably be pretty difficult, but the ability to wield a blunderbuss, hand cannon, or musket should level the playing field quite a bit.

The Next Warhammer: Vermintide 2 DLC Is Out In December

about X hours ago from

Fatshark Games' time as developer of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (as well as its predecessor) has mostly been forward-thinking.  Since releasing the game in March of this year, the Stockholm-based studio has sought ways to enhance their first person bashing simulator through the addition of new stages or unique items.  This time, though, their inspiration has come from the distant year of 2015.Sometime next month, the "Back to Ubersreik" DLC will bring back three of the original Vermintide's most beloved stages, starting with the Horn of Magnus.  To ensure things aren't too easy on our favorite heroes, though, each stage has been reworked to include the armies of Chaos as well as the inescapable Skaven.  Fatshark has also graphically overhauled the three stages to match their new vision of the Old World.The DLC's exact release date and other two stages have yet to be revealed, but expect news on both fronts to trickle in through the rest of November.

Aces of the Luftwaffe Squadron DLC - Nebelgeschwader Invades Today

about X hours ago from

Aces of the Luftwaffe - Squadron is receiving some new content today, in the form of new levels, six new bosses, and enhanced cooperative play. The DLC is called Nebelgechwader and follows an alternative view of the events of the base game. This is the Oberkommando of the Luftwaffe speaking: the Nebelgeschwader is ready for action on November 13th, which is perfect timing given all the Nebel in the air. Our counterintelligence will make sure that the Geschwader is completely disguised as a simple DLC pack, but understand that this is, in fact, a full add-on with exactly the same volume of content as the base game Aces of the Luftwaffe – Squadron: 25 new levels, six epic new boss sights, four different pilots and a local co-op mode for up to 4 players. They will never know what hit them… Aces of the Luftwaffe - Squadron is a classic style SHMUP with up to four players in couch co-op.  The Nebelgeschwader DLC will set you back $4.99 and is touted as having the "same amount of content as the base game." It's out now on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Steamlink Allows for Couch Co-Op to Multiple Devices

Steamlink Allows for Couch Co-Op to Multiple Devices

The Steam client is constantly getting updated, and with it, usually comes updates to the related services. The latest update to the Steam client provides enhancements for those folks that have a Steam Link in their home, or more specifically, have two.What this means is any game that only supports couch co-op can now be streamed to multiple TVs with the Steam Link combined with extra controller options like the Android phone extensibility. We aren't quite sure WHY you'd want to do this yet, perhaps you've screwed up one too many times in For the King and are tired of taking a few punches to the shoulder while sitting next to your roommate. But perhaps this is a precursor to something even better, allowing games that only support couch co-op to work over the internet to play with friends. Something like an app like Parsec supports, but built natively into Steam.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Casting The Ballot

The results are in, and it turns out the Co-Opticrew is violently opposed to even remotely showing any bias towards a single game, at least based on our weekend plans.  Maybe it's for the best, though, as we'll now have all sorts of fun, unique anecdotes to share on Monday.  If our staff wasn't based all over the world (and if water coolers were still a thing that people used), we'd be standing around them the whole day.Our varied plans include small-scale space warfare, radiation ingestion, and persona fusion.  Check it out!Jason Love (@JLove55) - "Yearning for the days when I had the time/energy and, for now, health to do things other than keep a 22 month old alive and well. When I can, I'll be playing some Moonlighter on the Switch."
