Rude Gameware announces Fierce Laser Gaming Mouse V2

Rude Gameware, a gaming peripheral company, has announced the release date of their new mouse, the Fierce Laser Gaming Mouse V2.

Mad Catz CES Showcase [CES 2011]

It’s been a full year now since we first checked in with the modern version of Mad Catz. We saw that they’d come miles since the crappy feeling, budget-priced, third-party controllers of the past. Mad Catz has grown, with more leaps than bounds, over the past year. Now they own five major peripheral manufacturers that span across all modern consoles and the PC. This year’s showcase at CES wasn’t as hefty as last year’s show, and in speaking with the PR the focus for CES 2011 was to feature products releasing within the next 90 days rather than the whole of the year.

Road to EVO 2K11 Mid-Point Check-in

For those of you who had been following the QuarterSave podcast before its abrupt hiatus, or read the review of the Mad Catz Tournament Edition FightStick, you’ll know that I’ve been in training for some time. As a life-long fan of both Vegas and Street Fighter, after watching last year’s EVO streamed online I came up with the idea of “how far could one VERY average player get with one year of training.” Well my friends, we’re coming up on the half-way point now that we’re into the new-year, and that seems a pretty apt point to provide you all with a check-in.

Sony's new 3D peripheral makes gamers look like Cyclops

If I had $20 for every time Sony mentioned 3D during their CES conference last night, I may have enough money to buy myself one of Sony’s new-fangled 3D Bravia TVs.  Just like they’ve done for the past year, Sony is heavily pushing 3D entertainment, whether it’s in movies, films or the area we all are interested the most in: video games.

Life + Kinect

I cannot speak for everyone on the subject, but when I fell in love with video games and later on started writing about them, I never once thought something such as Kinect would ever be made.

Before I go any further in my opinionated banter, I will forcefully ensure that you are aware that neither ShogunGamer nor myself get any sort of pay from Xbox or Microsoft. In addition, this is strickly my opinion and my response to the "elitest" and "single-track" gamers.

The first peripheral for the Kinect is finally revealed. And yes, it's silly as hell

Microsoft’s Kinect aims to offer an experience where gamers don’t require a controller, special peripheral or a silly floor pad of some kind.  The jury is still out on whether or not Microsoft will fully achieve what they set out to do with the Kinect but one thing is for sure: companies will still crank out unnecessary peripherals.

Doctor Who gaming accessories look awesome (yes, they're really geeky)

The BBC seems quite serious about having Doctor Who make an impact in the world of video games. We’ve already gotten the downloadable Doctor Who adventure games for the PC along with having Wii and DS games on deck for next month.  But now the BBC is expanding the Doctor Who video game license a bit with these new accessories for the Wii and Nintendo DS.

Microsoft Introduces a New Twist to its Wireless Controller

Starting Nov 9th, Microsoft plans to offer Xbox 360 gamers a new wireless controller though with a twist (pun intended).

A newly redesigned Xbox 360 wireless controller will be available for $64.99 and the main unique feature of the redesign will be a D-pad that will change from being semi-flush to a popped out plus symbol with a simple twist of the D-pad.

Vogel's TwistDock for the PS3 [Preview]

At this little video game shindig called E3 2010 I came across several cool products. Some of the cool stuff I saw were nice peripherals, cool one-off PC items or standard silliness (Hello Kitty products FTW).  But amongst the many items I saw there was one that stood out the most for me due to several reasons, the most notable of which is that it's for the PS3. 

TRON Legacy merchandise revealed

Last week I was lucky enough to get some hands-on time with the upcoming TRON video games TRON: Evolution and Tron: Evolution – Battle Grids.  As a hardcore TRON fan it was definitely an E3 highlight to get a glimpse at TRON’s video game debut on the current video game systems.  Now Disney has revealed the rest of their plans for TRON as they have unveiled some of the core merchandise for TRON Legacy.
