HyperX Alloy Elite 2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Almost exactly three years ago, I reviewed the HyperX Alloy Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It was the second HyperX keyboard, iterating on the success of the Alloy FPS - a keyboard which had converted me as a believer in the difference that a good mechanical keyboard can make.Since then, HyperX has gone on to make many more keyboards, all in the Alloy line. I’ve reviewed many of them, and each one has made sense in the journey that HyperX and the Alloy line have walked. Some have focused on a specific type of gamer (e.g. the Alloy FPS Pro Gaming catered to FPS players who want a very compact frame), others have updated with more lighting options (e.g. the Alloy FPS RGB added software as opposed to focusing solely on plug-and-play), and still others changed physical aspects (e.g. the Alloy Origins swapped Cherry switches for in-house HyperX switches).After three years, HyperX has looped back to one of the keyboards that started it all and in doing so has given it many of the bells and whistles that have proved successful in that time gap. Today I’ll be reviewing that board: the HyperX Alloy Elite 2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (henceforth just “Alloy Elite 2”). And I’m sure that the question you have is "what’s different about this remastered version?"

Hellraid DLC Delayed After Beta Player Feedback

Mixed emotions I'm sure as Techland have announced the once a game, then a DLC, now a delayed DLC Hellraid for Dying Light has been bumped from a release this week until August 14th 2020. The delay is said to be as a result of player feedback participating in the closed beta for the content. We received tons of great feedback during our beta of Dying Light – Hellraid. Big thanks to everyone who participated! We’re hell-bent on applying your suggestions, so we will be launching the new game mode on August 13 for PC, and August 14 for consoles. pic.twitter.com/3rqp680b7P

about X hours ago from

The original Dead Pixels has been featured on Xbox Live and Steam for about as long as I can remember and has appeared on a number of “Best of” lists for both  services. So it comes as great news that the Dead Pixels sequel, Dead Pixels 2: Straight to Video, has been announced for a Steam release complete with a brand new trailer and some very neon-inspired vibes.From the official developer page: “Dead Pixels II: Straight to Video is a procedurally generated side scrolling shooter set in a post apocalyptic city in the near future of 1991. Fight your way through the hordes of the undead as you try to find a way out of the city. Raid buildings for supplies and work with other groups of survivors in order to get out of this nightmare with a pulse.” Procedurally generated zombies for me and my pixelated friends? Sign me up! Will you be walking into the world of Dead Pixels again, or has the time since the first game just been too long? Let us know in the comments below!

Orcs Must Die 3 is Out Now on Stadia

about X hours ago from

This one came out of left field for me, as I had no idea there was a sequel in the making. But Orcs Must Die! 3 is out now...and it's a Google Stadia Exclusive for the time being. The sequel takes place 20 years after Orcs Must Die! 2, which was a fine example of a co-op tower defense game.So what's new? It appears there are two big additions to the game.  Large scale combat scenarios and mountable vehicles and weaponry. On top of that there are over 20 trap types including some past favorites.All new War Scenarios deliver on the promise of massive scale first set out in Orcs Must Die. Confront overwhelming armies of orcs on the battlefields surrounding the castles. Thin out waves of orcs hundreds strong before they breach the walls and crash your rift.
