Partners. What would life be without them? Not something we really want to find out, to be honest.

It's been a busy spring for OEMs, and Digital Storm is no exception.

Things tend to get expensive, your build options aren't as robust as they are with desktops, and working in tight quarters will test your patience. That's where system... Read more...
Motion sensing is very much "all the rage" these days, largely thanks to just how popular it has become in console gaming. Every major console maker now has some sort of motion/gesture-based control rig, and a lot of that technology is shifting over to the PC realm as well. Razer just released a firm ship date on...
