HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset and Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

HyperX launched two new peripherals in the past month: the Cloud Stinger headset and Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming keyboard. After using them for a couple of weeks now, I definitely find them worthy of consideration for a mid-budget gamer.Cloud Stinger Headset Let’s start with the headset. The Cloud Stinger is the latest in the HyperX headset family. It follows several others in the Cloud Series and Cloud Revolver Series. The Cloud Stinger was manifested from HyperX’s desire to create a durable and comfortable piece of gear with high sound quality for under $50. The headset’s slogan is even “the best gaming headset for under $50."Abbreviated Specifications for the Cloud Stinger Headset

Our Weekend In Gaming: Civilization Remix ft. Sean Bean

Our Weekend In Gaming: Civilization Remix ft. Sean Bean

Hello, again!  We've arrived once more at the end of the week, and just in time, too, as Sean Bean's own Civilization VI is finally out.  It seems like most of the Co-Opticrew will be busy with other ventures this weekend, but sooner or later, they'll hear the sweet siren-song of Sid Meier's latest release.  They'll try to resist.  Oh, how they'll try.  But none will be able to withstand it for too long.  I'd estimate that, about three weeks from now, the Weekend in Gaming posts will begin to dwindle as the staff slowly drifts out of reality.  Soon after, we'll assimilate with the Gandhiverse, completing the cyber-ritual and finally deifying Sid Meier.  For now, though, we've still got a lot of Gears of War 4 on the mind, as well as the Dark Souls 3 DLC, and a few MMOs.  Check it out:Jason Love (@JLove55) - "I, too, will be checking out the Dark Souls 3 DLC as well as getting back into Zombasite to formally review it."

Four years after its initial release, the title has been enhanced and ported to the PC as Overdriven Reloaded.While the graphics have gotten some tweaks, the big selling point here is the addition of new game-modes, all of which can be played cooperatively with three other players locally. The new modes include:Overdriven Reloaded is available now on Steam for $8.99.
