StarCraft II themed peripherals from Razer are back once more.
If you missed out on your chance to pick up a StarCraft II-themed gaming mouse, keyboard, or headset, Razer's giving you another chance. The gaming peripheral maker today announced the re-launch of its StarCraft II peripheral lineup in anticipation of Blizzard's StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm expansion that's due to release on March 12, 2013. All three peripherals, now available, are geared for real-time strategy (RTS) games.
After discovering that Razer had brought along its Razer Edge tablet for gamers to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), we knew had to infiltrate the company's suite at all costs and take a closer look. So, that's exactly what we did. The Razer Edge, if you missed our previous coverage, is the shipping name for what was previously known as Project Fiona. It's a high-end gaming tablet, notebook PC, and console all rolled into one.
The folks at Razer thought it would be groovy to blend a tablet, PC, and console into a single device, which was the idea behind Project Fiona introduced in January 2012 at the Consumer Electronics Show. Well, a full year has gone by, and Razer hasn't forgotten about that concept. Instead, Razer announced at this year's CES that Project Fiona is now the Razer Edge, which it intends to put into production and retail distribution in the coming months.
Once you go mechanical, you'll never go membrane again.
I like to think of myself as a keyboard enthusiast, though you're free to call me a typing snob if you wish. Either way, I view typing on a membrane keyboard a second-rate experience that pales in comparison to the sweet sensation (and, depending on the key switch, audible clicks) of a mechanical plank. So, I'm more than a little intrigued with Razer's Orbweaver mechanical gaming keypad.
Razer recognizes that mobile users are gamers too, and though there appears to be far less accessories available for gaming on the go, the category isn't being completely overlooked. Enter the Orochi Mobile Gaming Mouse, a dual-mode rodent that can communicate with your notebook via a wired connection or Bluetooth. Razer today announced a new version of the Orochi, one that brings an improved laser sensor and better battery life to the mobile scene.
Gaming peripheral guru Razer today unveiled its collection of mouse mats for 2013 and 2014, which consists of the Razer Invicta, Razer Manticor, Razer Destructor 2, and Razer Megasoma 2. All four were supposedly engineered with new construction methods for a superior finish and treated with "performance-boosting sensor-reactive surface coatings," but what's really interesting is a sub 3-minute video walking viewers through the design process.
First things first -- a disclaimer. We are in no way affiliated with Razer or its latest sweepstakes, so if something goes awry, don't shoot the messenger. Savvy? Cool, because we definitely wanted to share that Razer's giving away a custom designed Razer Blade laptop decked out in Star Wars: The Old Republic trim. On the inside, it's like every other Razer Blade, but on the outside, it's completely different.
Even though the original only started shipping in late January, gaming peripheral company Razer unveiled the successor to its Blade gaming laptop at PAX Prime on Friday. The good news is that despite boasting better innards, the Blade 2 will cost $300 less than its predecessor.
If you spend your days dreaming of taking to the skies, Razer's new BlackShark headphones may be the peripheral to keep your head above ground, even if you aren't. The stereo gaming headset was designed to look and feel like the ones worn by attack helicopter pilots, Razer says, and if they look familiar, it's because the gaming peripheral maker already sells a branded pair for Battlefield 3 junkies.
Razer, a well known maker of PC gaming peripherals, has made available to developers its Software Development Kit (SDK) for its Switchblade user interface (UI). The Switchblade UI is featured prominently on the company's 'Razer Blade' gaming laptop, as well as its Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming keyboard and newly announced DeathStalker Ultimate plank.
