I'd like to have the headphones, but I just can't afford the surgery to get square ears.

OK... I'll be the one who likes the keyboard!

I have been looking for a good one with illumination for working at night. Although I would like to see this one with extra macro keys on the left side. especially if they are going to charge this much for it?

I think these are all ugly. The blue lights would be annoying and if you are going to get a keyboard for $119 then you might as well get one with mechanical keys that are going to last. They make backlit ones for around the same price. deck keyboards come to mind.

The mouse looks like a scarab...However, I like where they're going with the keyboard.  I love sci-fi tech, especially sci-fi keyboards in movies.  That keyboard seems right on the mark for the game, I could see the Terran Battleship having something like it.
