Razer BlackShark V2 Review – IGN

By tracy
When it comes to esports, accuracy and precision are important, and having great audio with an excellent soundstage is a vital part of that. That’s where esports gaming headsets like the Razer BlackShark V2 come in handy.A follow-up to the glossier BlackShark, which has been lauded for its comfort, great sound quality, and cool design, this successor has a more subdued look and not much in the way of frills and thrills. But, that’s only because it’s honed in on the way it lets you experience audio in gaming instead.

Razer BlackShark V2 Review

It’s hitting the shelves with three new technologies either developed or co-developed by Razer and THX. These include the THX Spatial Audio, which essentially offers THX Competitive Mode for some of the most popular games out there, as well as the new Razer Triforce Titanium 50mm drivers, which are made up of three parts – each for the highs, mids and lows.

The result is a terrific gaming headset that sounds great and boasts a soundstage incredible enough to give you an actual competitive edge in gaming.

Marvel’s Avengers’ Most Superficial Problem Could End Up Being Its Biggest

By tracy
A confession: my superhero wish fulfillment fantasies have never revolved around altering what kind of bones The Incredible Hulk has inside his wrist.I like a great deal of what I’ve played from Marvel’s Avengers so far. I like the tone of the storyline, I’m encouraged by the amount of control I have over what kind of hero I’m getting to play with, and I love how much of Kamala Khan’s moveset seems to revolve around punting robots right in the techno-solar plexus with a shoe the size of a microwave.

What I really don’t like is a far more superficial concern, and yet it’s one that really bothers me; I can’t stop myself from thinking about it. Just like other games of its kind, Marvel’s Avengers offers up new equippable loot after every mission, and often multiple times during a mission. Just like other games of its kind, that loot comes with stats, perks, and modifiers, making the process of picking what you want to install into and onto your suite of superheroes a thoughtful, and sometimes difficult proposition.

Panzer Paladin Review – A Bit Too Retro

By tracy

Tribute Games has taken on a mission of revitalizing game styles from previous generations, and Panzer Paladin is a laudable success in that effort. The side-scrolling futuristic action game borrows most prominently from the Mega Man series in its structure, but other nods are also in place, from Blaster Master to Ghosts ‘n Goblins. With rollicking chiptunes and evocative pixel art, the developer hits all the right notes to feel like a modern throwback. But the retro structure and design can do more to harm than good, and Panzer Paladin has pulled a few of the wrong ideas into the present.

As a rescue android who pilots a towering paladin mech, you are Earth’s last line of defense against an onslaught of occult enemies, including mythological monsters drawn from the various world cultures, from Medusa to Anubis. You choose whether to jet off to Japan, Mexico, or any of several other themed locations, fighting through lengthy stages ahead of big boss encounters. After checking off all the baddies around the world, a floating space station opens up, including an unbroken string of several more levels and bosses on your path to victory.
