Corsair's latest headset dances on your dome with haptic feedback

Corsair is throwing its hat into a very small ring of headsets with haptic feedback, which essentially brings a similar rumble sensation found in most controllers to your eardrums and head. The company's new HS60 Haptic achieves this through specialized bass processing from Taction Technology.

A Total War Saga: Troy is getting a photo mode next week

It is not uncommon for me to lose control of a Total War battle because I'm trying to snap the perfect picture, desperately and pointlessly hoping to recreate those impossibly lovely bullshots every game is accompanied by.

I thoroughly enjoyed our recent interview with Hearthstone lead designer Dean "Iksar" Ayala, in which he discussed how the game's current meta became one of the most balanced Hearthstone has ever seen, with all classes pretty much viable. But balanced doesn't always mean fun, and there was quite a bit of pushback after from players who argued that the best decks are way too reliant on 'created by' effects—ie cards which randomly generate other cards. And in the case of Mage: a lot of other cards.
