Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo 2016 : New Feel, New Venue!

This year represented a transition year for the Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo. For years it's operated in a very similar structure and location. Primarily as a venue for vendors to pedal their wares of the old-timey video game variety, and out of New West's historic Columbia. Now the convention "Beta Tests" it's fit with the new Anvil Centre (recently built) to define the next generation of the convention and it's crowd.

Xbox One Elite Controller [Review]

It’s no secret I’ve had my opinion of custom/third party controllers swayed within the years since I’ve started writing reviews. Initially, when I was a younger man, the concept of customized controllers was fraught with substandard materials. Cheap parts meant that if you showed up late to your friend’s party you were going to be stuck with some knock-off Nintendo controller that felt like crap and was prone to tech issues.

Razer Mamba Tournament Edition [Review]

While people tend to have personal preferences or brand loyalties when mice and keyboards, I've always steered towards the Razer peripherals. They have always been of a great build quality and there are sure to be a suited match based on your wants and needs when it comes to their products.

I've been a part of the Razer camp for quite some time. Even now,  looking to the side of my desk, I can see my older DeathAdder, Ouroboros, and Naga mice waiting to be used again; based on my gaming needs at any given time.

Radial Dialogue - Episode 6 - Rock Band 4 Officially Announced

Good news everyone! Jen is finally feeling a little bit better, enough so to get out of bed this morning and head down to do a recording of a new episode of Radial Dialogue.

If you weren't able to join us this morning, here's the recap: Jen and I discussed the announcement of Rock Band 4, what that means for the instruments, EA shutting down Maxxis' main studio, and the PSN+ free games for March.

Sony's PlayStation Move Racing Wheel Looks Kind Of Cool But Kind Of Pointless [Video]

Sometimes it may seem like I’m too much of a Sony fanboy in how enthused or excited I may be about a game or a particular announcement. I’ll admit that I’m definitely a member of the PlayStation nation, but every now and then Sony does something that’s so silly that I can’t defend it since it’s that asinine. Sony may be keeping a good grip on their core software releases this year, but when I look upon things such as the new PlayStation Move racing peripheral I really can’t help but cry on the inside.

Mad Catz Company Spotlight and Interview [CES 2012]

A lot of people that read the site might not remember, but one of Shogun Gamer’s land-mark moments occurred about three years ago when we attended our very first CES as official members of the press. It was a fantastic experience that opened our eyes to the world beyond writing our thoughts of the industry as dedicated gamers and enthusiasts. During our time there we got to check out tons of new hot tech, including a mind-numbing amount of headsets (thanks again Corey), and made a lot of great connections with those in the industry.

Razer Product Spotlight [CES 2012]

Traditionally Shogun Gamer has had a, mostly, console-specific focus. Our coverage of the PC gaming world in the past consisted of stand-alone titles that were not provided elsewhere, and the occasional talk of interesting hardware (namely accessories) when they were announced. In the last year however, we’ve significantly stepped up our game in the PC world, realising, finally, that it does still representative a significant portion of gamers. If we’re to represent gamers, and more importantly ourselves as gamers, then clearly it’s something we need to work on.

Mad Catz Product Spotlight [CES 2012]

It’s been three years, nearly to the day, since we first met up with Mad Catz at CES and were blown away by how far they’d come since the company we’d distanced ourselves from the 90s. With each passing year they have gone bigger and better, acquiring a series of partner companies with each focused on providing a top-end experience in their designated marketplaces. This past year represents as another big landmark for the company as their audio company, Tritton, partnered with Microsoft to produce a line of co-branded Microsoft headsets for the Xbox 360.

Mad Catz Unveils Tritton Primer Pre-CES

While we’re still waiting on the “official” start to CES, that hasn’t stopped one of our personal favorite peripheral companies from leaking a little bit of a “first look” at their new product line for 2012. Mad Catz today threw up some information concerning the first, of five, of their co-branded headset with Microsoft for the Xbox 360.

E3 Going 3D With New Technology

Whether you consider 3D to be a fad or not it looks like it’s here to stay for a while. Unfortunately, the cost of getting a 3D TV is too high for the majority of households. The Nintendo 3DS provided a decently priced option for 3D gaming, with the extra bonus of not needed glasses. However, Snakebyte has announced that they will be showcasing their new HDMI cable at E3, which they claim can turn any 2D image into a glasses-free 3D experience.
