When it comes to choosing the right keyboard, you have to be aware of some terminology, especially as it relates to mechanical switches. First off, linear versus tactile switches keys. Linear means there is no physical feedback mechanism to indicate when a keystroke is registered. It's smooth, relatively quiet, and preferred for rapidly tapping on keys. Tactile means there is a bump or click to indicate you've hit the actuation point; it's louder, but some prefer having physical feedback for keystrokes. It really comes down to preference. Actuation point is the distance at which a keystroke is registered; a shorter distance means you don't have to press the key down as far, but can lead to errant inputs. Actuation force is, well, the force needed to press the key down. Of course, there are all the quality-of-life considerations to think about, too, like multimedia keys, whether you want a programmable key row and such. … [Read more...] about The Best Gaming Keyboard (May 2020): Razer, Steelseries, Logitech, HyperX, And More

Homall gaming recliner | $170Doubling as a nice gaming chair and a regular recliner, Homall's gaming recliner is quite different from other chairs on this list. It looks like one of the seats you'd see in an updated movie theater, which is nice, though that does mean it lacks some of the features of other chairs, like an adjustable armrest. The two-tone design comes in red/black, white/black, and blue/black--though all of them lean heavy into a traditional black look. The recliner has a lumbar cushion and headrest like you'd see in rolling gaming chairs, but it's obviously much more spacious and is meant to stay put in one spot in front of your TV. Additionally, the lumbar cushion has a built-in massager that has multiple different modes and intensities that can be cycled through with the included remote. … [Read more...] about Best Cheap Gaming Chairs 2020: Good Chairs That Won’t Break The Bank

The problem is, not all threats are characterised by moustache-stroking, suited villains. Sometimes maliciousness just exists, and is closer than you think. District X in the comics shows the grotty underbelly of mutant society and the impact they’ve had on humans. With Logan enjoying its own gritter setting, the mutant ghetto is a good opportunity to show just how grim a superhero movie can be. Drugs and superpowers aren’t incompatible, especially when humans have been buying Mutant Growth Hormone (MGH), a drug harvested from the blood of those with superpowers. Giving them the same powers as the mutant it was taken from, the comics show the markets crashing due to the X-gene disappearing from all the MGH vials and people get desperate. Remaining mutants can sell their blood to dealers for exorbitant prices, but the comics make a point of showing that they’re literally putting a price tag on their morals as MGH ‘burns out’ humans. A perfect crucible for … [Read more...] about The secret to saving the X-Men movie franchise is hidden in the comics – here’s how to do it
So far, all the looks Sony has given us at the PS5 controller - officially called the DualSense - have been of a two-toned white and black model. It's difficult to tell for sure, but this silhouetted controller may be an all-black design. On the other hand, this could very easily be another "is this dress black and blue or white and gold" situation. … [Read more...] about Is this PlayStation teasing the PS5 startup sound and black DualSense controller?
