Black Friday 2018: The best PC gaming deals on graphics cards, monitors, SSDs and more

As the days get darker and the night starts drawing in, it can only mean one thing: there's just one more week left to go before the darkest of dark winter days, Black Friday (cause it's got 'black' in the title, geddit?). The giant jamboree o'deals is so close now that literally everyone's just decided to go ahead and start deals-ing early, giving us even…

Best gaming mouse 2018: Top wired and wireless mice

It's sometimes easy to forget about your mouse when you're already spending buckets of money on all your other PC peripherals, but finding that extra bit of cash for one of today's best gaming mice can bring with it a surprising number of benefits. Now I've used my fair share of bog standard mice over the years with just two main buttons and a scroll…

Mad Catz unveil new series of RAT gaming mice to mark their return to PC peripherals

Mad Catz, the bankrupted-but-recently-resurrected maker of PC peripherals and console controllers for younger brothers and sisters, have announced their return to the world stage of PC hardware with the arrival of not one, but four new gaming mice, and they're all giant, hand-hogging RATs. Sorry, one sec, I just got a whiff of something awful. It smells like... cheesy feet? No, it can't be. Must…

Black Friday 2018: Best gaming mouse and keyboard deals

October may have been all about trick or treating, but as deals aficionados know oh so well by now, November is all about the treats treats treats, specifically in discount form over the holiday to end all holidays, Black Friday. In just two and a bit weeks, there will be more deals than you know what to do with, making it the perfect time to…

Feature: Balancing act

HP Omen Reactor review: A great gaming mouse let down by its software

As all PC gaming cat owners know, mice cables somehow possess the same tasty properties as the tails and innards of their real life counterparts. I don't know what it is that's so mouth-wateringly delicious about long, thin wires, but man alive did my cats like chewing them when they were little. Thankfully, they've largely grown out of their cable-munching phase (if only because they…

Logitech G Pro Wireless review: The best wireless gaming mouse ever made

One of the biggest complaints often levied at wireless gaming mice is that they're simply too slow and heavy compared to their wired rivals. Despite being free of snagging cables that somehow manage to get in the way of everything at all times, that liberty often comes at the cost of latency and reliability, with the extra disadvantage that they've now got to carry a…

Feature: Getting a grip

MSI Clutch GM60 review: A flexible gaming mouse that ultimately falls a bit flat

As £70 / $69 gaming mice go, the MSI Clutch GM60 is arguably one of the most adaptable mice I've seen in a while. It's ambidextrous for starters, making it a good pick for right and left-handed PC peeps alike, but you also get not one, but two pairs of magnetic side covers, an extra USB cable (one braided, one rubber) and an additional top…

Feature: Holding out for a hero?

Logitech G502 Hero review: Faster, stronger, but it is better?

As you might have guessed from the name, the Logitech G502 Hero is a slightly fancier version of Logitech's classic £50 / $50 G502 gaming mouse. For an extra £30 / $30, you can bag yourself a 16000 DPI sensor as opposed to a 12000 one, left and right clickers with a 50 million click endurance rating rather than 20 million, and an additional two…

Razer Mamba + Firefly Hyperflux review: How much?

It's been quite a while since we've had a wireless mouse in for review at Castle Shotgun, and for that I apologise. To rectify the situation, I've got Razer's Mamba + Firefly Hyperflux combo in today, which is absolutely 100% the name of a mouse and mouse mat and definitely not a binned subtitle for Kingdom Hearts 3. The main attraction here is Razer's aforementioned…

Feature: Devil in the details

It’s the little details that make HP’s new Omen Sequencer keyboard and Reactor mouse so great

I won't lie. When HP announced a string of new Omen peripherals at this year's Computex show in Taiwan, the thing that really caught my eye was its supposed ear-cooling gaming headset. It even had a cool-sounding name and everything. The HP Omen MINDFRAME. Sadly, that was the one thing missing from the HP Omen demo day I went to last week. I did, however,…

Amazon Prime Day 2018: Best deals on PC games and hardware

This year's Amazon Prime Day is almost at an end. At midnight tonight, Amazon's big day o' deals will be over for another year (or, you know, until Black Friday in November), so if you had a look at the deals yesterday and thought, 'Hmm... I could do with a new SSD or graphics card', then you've still got time to pick one up. I know Amazon is…

Steelseries Rival 310 review: The best gaming mouse under £50

These days, it seems like any half-decent gaming mouse requires at least fifty of your fine British pounds or sixty of your finest American dollars. That's still a lot more than I'm willing to fork out in most cases, but sometimes, I admit, it can be worth the extra expense - such as the Asus ROG Gladius II (£68 / $80) and its handy, dedicated…

Feature: Return of the king, or nostalgia gone too far?

Microsoft Classic Intellimouse review: A noughties comeback

Nostalgia for utilitarian late-90s/early noughties PC accessories: truly, this is the darkest timeline. And I am its villain, for it was I who felt a tingle of absurd fondness when Katharine announced that the Microsoft Classic Intellimouse, a physically almost identical remake of the Windows gang's once-ubiquitous USB mouse, had arrived atop her trembling tower of plastic and cabling. It was I who proffered the…

HyperX Pulsefire Surge review: A petite gaming mouse undermined by fussy software

The HyperX Pulsefire Surge has had a bit of a rocky ride to shop shelves. You might have caught a brief glimpse of it earlier in the year before it was pulled due to a fault in the design of the two main click buttons coming too close together, but now it's back, retooled and ready for action in all its rainbow LED glory. Let's…

Feature: The holy trinity of gaming mice

Razer Naga Trinity review: Three gaming mice in one

I'll admit to doing a bit of a double-take when I saw how much the Razer Naga Trinity goes for these days. £100 / $90? On your bike, lad. But then I realised the Naga Trinity isn't really just a single mouse. With its trio of interchangeable side plates, this is three mice in one, giving you the option of two, seven or twelve extra…

Steelseries Sensei 310 review: An all-round ambidextrous mouse

Esports smee-sports. Whatever it says on the box about the Steelseries Sensei 310 being "engineered" for your favourite arena-based festivities, you should know this ambidextrous mouse is still a great point and clicker in its own right. Whether you're indeed planning to use it for a spot of Plunkbat chicken dinner-ing, or frantically buying ten thousand copies of Yakuza 0 on Steam for everyone because…

Alienware cut cords with their first wireless headset, plus a new mouse

It's been almost ten years since Alienware released their last headset, but now Dell's gaming division are diving back into the heady world of RGB lights, chunky microphones and oversized audio drivers with their very first wireless gaming headset, the appropriately named Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset. Or the AW988 for short. Oh, and they've also released a new mouse to go with it that has interchangeable side plates in case you…

Move over ROG, Asus’ new TUF mouse, keyboard and headset are in town

PC gaming's E3 is finally here. No, not that other PC gaming show that's taking place next week at E3 proper. I'm talking about Computex 2018, Taiwan's yearly tech bonanza where the weird and wonderful of PC gaming hardware is shown off to the world for the first time. Sometimes these bits of hardware actually see the light of day. Sometimes they don't. I suspect Asus' new entry-level TUF peripherals,…
