Corsair has rolled out a new case that might be perfect for the PC gamer or enthusiast out there who wants to cram a huge amount of hardware into the chassis. The case is called the Obsidian Series 1000D and it is constructed from four smoked tempered glass panels. The case has RGB lighting on the front and you can see all the fancy hardware inside thanks to the glass panels. One of the most interesting aspects of the giant chassis is that it has enough room inside for a complete E-ATX and Mini-ITX computer system, PSU and all. Two complete PCs would allow you to stream video from one machine and play games on the other at the same time. With space enough for two complete computers inside one... Read more...

Remember Neo Geo? For any gamer in "that" generation, the answer is probably "yes."

We have a distinct love for mechanical keyboards around here, and we're always on the lookout for any new competitors. They aren't nearly as easy to locate as membrane keyboards, but the ones that are available are generally top-notch and built for gamers. But Razer claims that the units already out there simply don't live up to their new pair of mechanical keyboards, and while we would obviously need to test out one to confirm or deny it, there's no question that these two sound fantastic on paper. Debuting this week at the GamesCom event in Germany, the Razer BlackWidow and BlackWidow Ultimate are two of the most fully featured mechanical keyboards that we've seen. Razer claims that most mech... Read more...

Some may argue that Steam has a monopoly on the digital distribution of PC games, and while it is obviously the most well-known outlet for acquiring new titles without getting a physical disc, we can't help but say that our experience with the program has been great. There are obviously a lot of others out there feeling the same way, as the service has grown 200% (up to 25 million users) over the past year, with 12 billion player minutes being logged per month and 75 billion Steam client minutes per month.That kind of growth takes a toll on an infrastructure, and Valve is making sure that they are well prepared for the continue influx. As the world continues to spin and more households procure... Read more...
Some may say that the physical disc still has a place in this world for years to come, and they're probably right. But to say that digital downloads aren't taking out a serious chunk of sales would be denying reality. iTunes alone has proven that digital downloads are capable of catching on, as Apple has already taken over Walmart as the world's largest seller of music. That said, music has been tied to downloading for a long, long time. Napster was booming years and years ago, but people haven't had the same kind of opportunity to grow used to downloading games. Of course, Steam has provided avid PC gamers with the ability to download titles to their hard drive, but console gamers haven't enjoyed... Read more...
