Release the Kraken V2!

Check out the new Razer Kraken V2s, you guys. They look glorious.

The new Razer Krakens feature larger 50mm custom-tuned drivers for game sounds and communication balance, a unibody frame (this is a plus!), and redesigned ergonomics. 

The 50mm drivers are larger than any of those found in previous Krakens, which they claim should give a wider frequency range, improving balance between in-game audio and communications.

The PlayStation 4 Dualshock 4 USB Dongle Review

The best controller, at least for me, is the Dualshock 4. It just fits my hands just right. So even on PC games, I always used the Dualshock 4. Unfortunately, Sony never really officially supported the DS4 for Steam games. And why would they? It's not their platform, after all.

When the official USB wireless dongle for the Dualshock 4 was announced, I was stoked! Could this be it!? Could this be Sony officially supporting the Dualshock 4 on the PC?! Alas, it is not to be.

I mean, you always could've used your Dualshock 4 on your PC games. You just needed to install 3rd party apps like DS4Windows or some other kind of input mapper. Installing those extension apps always felt messy to me. I wanted a clean solution from Sony.

Corsair HD120 RGB and SP120 RGB LED Case Fans

Quick - what's one of the best things about putting together a PC? If you said "the colorful lights," then you'd be right. My PC build is named Kobalt, and I made sure to outfit him with all blue LEDs. I even thought of picking up some LED strips to illuminate the inside of the case, too. Good thing I like blue lights, though, because I'm stuck with them. If only there was a way I could change the LED colors of my fans... oh, wait, there is.

Check out Corsair's HD120 RGB LED High Performance 120mm PWM fans and SP120 RGB LED High Performance 120mm fans with controller.

Look at all the pretty colors!

Razer DeathAdder Elite

Right now, the mouse I use is the Logitech G502 Proteus. This is only because I had to give up my 2013 Razer DeathAdder because of the somewhat prevalent double clicking issue. It was the only thing (well 1 of 2 things - more on that later) that kept it from the perfect gaming mouse. And now, the best gaming mouse is getting a major upgrade.

Razer just announced the Razer DeathAdder Elite.

Is the PS4 Pro Worth It?

The quick answer to that question is "it depends." There are a number of criteria that have to be fulfilled before I can say that "yes, the PS4 Pro is a good buy for you."

Let's start with the basics. What can the PS4 Pro do that the regular PS4 can't? In a nutshell, the PS4 Pro upscales your PS4 games to 4K resolution and improves gaming performance, pretty much. The Pro's GPU is 128% more powerful than the vanilla PS4, and that allows for the 4K output. The CPU of the Pro shares the same architecture of the vanilla PS4, only with a higher clock speed. Those two things are the main differences, but the Pro also sports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth has been bumped up to 4.0 from 2.1. The bump in Bluetooth improves power consumption, data transfer rates, reliability, security, speed - all that good stuff.
