One of the most underrated Metroidvanias on Steam is getting a sequel

Released in 2015, Castle in the Darkness wasn't the most talked about Metroidvania of the year (thanks, Ori and the Blind Forest and Axiom Verge) but I can confirm that it was very good, especially if the sprawling Wonder Boy games were your bag. So it's great news that it's getting an unlikely sequel.

You can now buy a vinyl record full of mechanical keyboard sounds

Many people consider the click-clack of mechanical keyboards to be a necessary evil, something to be tolerated.

The premium HyperX Cloud Mix gaming headset is $70-off at Walmart right now

Hopefully, you didn't spend all your cash this weekend with all the incredible Black Friday deals because there are some worthy Cyber Monday offers to choose from too. Walmart has got a great deal on the HyperX Cloud Mix gaming headset, which is 35 percent off, bringing the price down to $129.99. This makes it the lowest price we have seen for this killer gaming headset with Bluetooth wireless. Unfortunately, the sale is on the black model and not the flashy Rose Gold color that HyperX recently released. HyperX headphones regularly make our best gaming headset lists every year, so we always get excited whenever we see price drops.
