PDP Wired Fight Pad Pro Controllers Review

With Super Smash Bros Ultimate launching in a few weeks, Performance Design Products (PDP) is set to launch their Wired Fight Pad Pro Controllers in just a few days, so gamers can prep for the release of the game on December 7th. While the marketing around these controllers has focused on Smash Bros - because who doesn't want to play Smash Bros with a GameCube inspired controller! - it's easy to forget that these controllers can be used for other games too!

BlackBerry KEY 2 LE

The BlackBerry KEY 2 LE takes the greatest features of the BlackBerry KEY 2 and give it to consumers at a cheaper price. Moving from the 'mack daddy' version down to the little brother was something I was worried about doing, but after using the KEY 2 LE for over a month now, the features I thought I was missing from the regular version didn't seem that important. So while this review might read as a "what the KEY 2 LE lacks that the KEY 2 has," please don't look at it this way. This is a fantastic phone!

TURTLE BEACH’S ELITE PRO™ 2 + SUPERAMP™ Review

We review a ton of headsets on GamesReviews.com, and generally they are all doing things well, providing the features you would expect in a specific price range, and ultimately realizing that purchasing power comes down to brand loyalty, and at times, even things as trivial as colour schemes. Enter Turtle Beach's latest high quality, high priced headset: the Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp. While I originally wasn't sure why I'd want to hook my headset into and amp, which was then hooked into the Xbox One, I quickly realized how amazing this setup is.

SteelSeries Rival 710 Gaming Mouse Review

The Rival 710 gaming mouse from SteelSeries is a sleek, new mouse that boasts a variety of unique and high-end features such as Tactile Alerts for quick notifications, swappable parts for performance customization, split-trigger mechanical switches, TrueMove3 optical sensor for pinpoint tracking accuracy and an OLED screen for in-game stats. While this may seem a lot to pack into one mouse, at a price point of $129.99 CAD (~$100USD) one should expect to see quite a few bells and whistles attached.

SteelSeries Arctis 5 Review

Thanks to our good friends at SteelSeries, I recently was given an Arctis 5 headset to review, and I must say that my first impressions were very mixed. It didn’t look flashy, it had a middle-of-the-road feel for both weight and sturdiness and it wasn’t wireless. From someone whose baseline headset is the Logitech G933, it was the exact opposite of what I had become used to. After using the headset for 30+ hours, however, my opinion on it has done a complete reversal.

While we work away on our Google Pixel 3 XL review, we wanted to quickly touch base on the notch controversy. In case you are not familiar, many people are questioning the size of the notch on the Google Pixel 3 XL; by notch, they are talking about the area on the top of the phone screen 'notched' out to accommodate some internal features, most notably here the dual selfie cameras and the large, front facing stereo speaker.
