SteelSeries talks gaming headsets, mechanical keyboards, gaming mice, and more!
SteelSeries wanted to drop by to show off its latest Sibera gaming headsets so we thought we would round them up in the podcast room to talk about that and more. In addition to headset talk, on episode 233 of the No BS Podcast, we discuss mechanical keyboards, wired/wireless gaming mice, the possibility of future Steam Machine peripherals, potential VR controllers, and much more.
As the MMO genre continues to expand, so does the options for a suitable gaming mouse designed for MMOs. The newest addition to the roster of MMO gaming peripherals comes from Aorus that has announced its Aorus Thunder M7 gaming mouse that features 16 programmable buttons.
If you have been looking for a mouse that will let you shoot the wings off of a fly, then Logitech’s G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse might be the one for you. Maximum PC’s Jimmy Thang got to see the Proteus Core, which features a 12,000DPI sensor, up close and personal at PAX East.
If your hot and heavy Diablo 3 sessions lead to sweaty palms and finger slippage, worry not: help is on the way courtesy of Thermaltake. Today, the company's Tt ESports division announced the Black Element Cyclone Edition mouse, which is an enhanced version of the basic Black Element mouse, complete with a detachable 6,000 RPM fan attached to cool down your overheated digits. No, really!
Having trouble swinging your lightsaber while simultaneously casting Force Lightning and juggling the gear you've taken from the cold, dead bodies of Sith Lords across The Old Republic? Fear not, Padawan; Mad Catz's most ridiculous mouse yet, the Cyborg MMO 7, may just be the peripheral you need to cure screen-shuffle-it is. The 13 programmable buttoned beast went up for sale today.
Gamers already have a ton of options when it comes to gaming mice -- thanks to Shogun Bros., that number just hit a ton plus one. The company claims that its newly unveiled (but not yet available) Ballista MK-1 Gaming Mouse is tailor-made to make the lives of online campers -- pardon me, online "snipers" -- more cushy than ever before with a bevy of sharpshooter-friendly features.
When it comes to gaming mice, the "Best PC Part I Ever Spent My Hard Earned Cash On Contest" proved that Maximum PC readers are gaga for R.A.T. Mice. and who can blame you? We love it too. But Logitech's not letting all the Cyborg love get in the way of their releases. The company just announced it has a mouse up its sleeve, too, in the form of the upcoming Logitech Gaming Mouse G300.
The Razer Lachesis gaming mouse originally launched in 2007, with a dramatically curved, ambidextrous design and a 4,000dpi sensor. Three years later, Razer has released a new Lachesis, which is not so much a sequel as a refinement of the original.
The most important change in Lachesis 2.0 is the 5,600dpi sensor, which puts it on par with other top-end gaming mice. We don’t usually play at such a high sensitivity, but we tested it at dpi levels across the whole spectrum and found the Lachesis responsive and reliable.
