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…

Razer Huntsman review: Opto-mechanical goodness

If you like your clacky keyboards, Razer's new Huntsman is going to be right up your street. This thing is LOUD. Much louder, I'd say, than any other keyboard I've tested so far, and I'd probably even go as far as saying it's clickier and clackier than the Cherry MX blue switches found in mechanical keyboards like the Fnatic Streak and HyperX Alloy Elite. This…

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…

The new Razer Blade (2018) is primed and ready for on-the-go Final Fantasy XV

Gaming laptops are a funny business, aren't they? Nine times out of ten they're nowhere near as powerful as an equivalent desktop PC, yet they usually cost just as much, if not more, than the bulky black rectangles they're so desperately trying to replace. There's also a matter of looks. Most gaming laptops are very much from the shouty GAMING LAPTOP school of design with…

Razer Blade Stealth + Razer Core review: the external laptop graphics card dream

Consider this a slight tangent from my ongoing quest to decide which gaming laptop to buy by reviewing a bunch of them. The Razer Blade Stealth is not a gaming laptop, despite coming from a company most known for aggressively 'gamer'-orientated technology. It's an ultrabook, which is to say very thin and light, which means no discrete graphics card and a low-power processor. The Macbook…

So I Bought A Mechanical Keyboard

Note - this piece is aimed at people who are as ignorant about mechanical keyboards as I was until around a week ago (and probably still am), not at old hands. For the longest time, my major interest in a keyboard has been whether it's got big, easy multimedia controls. Apart from that, it's a plastic thing with buttons on it, right? Then people (including…

Healing The Rift: Razer Aims To Democratise VR

God only knows where they get the money from, but hardware firm Razer are a reliable source of massively optimistic gaming tech that it's hard to believe will ever quite take off despite how it appealing it sounds on paper. Hands up who owns a Razer Hydra? Or a Razer Edge Pro? Or is planning on a Project Christine? Well, maybe this one will hit…

Razer Announces Easy-To-Upgrade Project Christine

Razer's latest bit of PC mad science might look like an alien ribcage, but it aspires to big things. For those of us who worship at The Impossibly Tall Altar Of Horace, building a PC is a routine task, but those who've yet to realize the stars in the sky are merely his universe-nourishing teats aren't as keen on it. There are cards and motherboards…

What Price Innovation? ($50m, If You’re Razer)

"The PC giants have stopped innovating" claimed Razer boss Min-Liang Tan to Kotaku recently. What he meant, of course, was that Razer's own projects such as tablet PC/wrestling machine Project Fiona offer the experimental design the Dells and HPs of this world should be pursuing. Fiona's unveiling seemed to result in a planet-wide raised eyebrow, but I love that it's happening even if I think…

Getting A Handle On Razer’s Project Fiona

Razer have taken the lid off the simmering mystery that was 'Project Fiona', and everyone who said mouse/keyboard/gamepad or whatever was wrong. So wrong that they should run into the street, take off all their clothes and scream "I AM WRONG IN EVERY POSSIBLE SENSE." The truth about Fiona? It's an Intel Core i7-powered gaming PC built to be a tablet, with a pair of…

Razer Tease Project Fiona, Which Is “Badass”

I have no idea what an "all-new form factor" is, but that is the ridiculous phrase Razer are using to describe something that's currently dubbed Project Fiona, due to be announced properly on the 10th. Appearing on their incredibly unhelpfully named pcgamingisnotdead.com website (er, yeah, we all knew that thanks) is a deliberately opaque trailer for, um, something. Whatever it is, Razer assures that "it's…

Oh Yes, And That Razer Announcement

Uh, hmm. So I completely forgot to post this on RPS yesterday despite spending time reading and commenting about it on other sites. Well, we don't really cover hardware at the moment. I mean we probably should, but we don't do it routinely. That's my excuse. Anyway, Razer's big announcement was a gaming laptop, the cleverly named "Razer Blade", which they somehow believe is the…

Razer Starting Mysterious Pro-PC Campaign

Throughout the late 90s and most of the following decade there was the tedious refrain, "Adventure games are dead." Which of course meant every single time an adventure game came out there had to be the opposing, "Adventure games are not dead." Or more usually, "Reports of adventure gaming's death are much ex..." and every variant thereof. I'm as guilty as it of anyone. Unfortunately,…

Razer Announce Old Republic Gaming Gear

How's your keyboard? Old? Stinky? Are there so many crumbs under the keys that you can barely type, and when you can it sounds like somebody eating biscuits? Well, Razer's just announced a new range of PC peripherals branded around upcoming MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic, and... well, it's not like I can tell you whether they're any good. They've only just been announced.…

Razer Hydra Gets Own Portal 2 Version

According to Joystiq's extensive report from CES, a new PC motion controller from Razer, the Hydra, will get its own version of Portal 2. The device will apparently be bundled with a special version of Portal 2 which will specifically support the Razer. Joystiq say: "That Portal 2 bundle will include a special version of the game, that includes not only native support for the…

Captain Intense & The Dude Revolutionise PC

I'm being rude. I'm sorry. It's just that the sheer intensity and earnestness of this video holds me back from taking the Razer Switchblade entirely seriously. Which maybe I should do, as essentially it's a 7" clamshell PC with special adaptive and touchscreen controls that in theory make playing 'our' games possible on something so minute.

Motion Tracking Controller For PC?

Are you ready to have the way you play PC games revolutionised? No? Well tough, because a man said it's going to happen. News from Consumer Electronics Show suggests that there's a push to convince us we need a six-axis/Wii remote/wavy throwy gun-style controller for the PC, and no less than Valve are providing the shouting. The attack is coming from three companies, peripheral manufacturer…

Razer’s Glowing Thumbpad Of Mystery

Readers with memories will be able to recall that I was on a quest for a new mouse the other week, and that led me back to Razer, and the Diamondback. Basically, my old mouse (the Krait) but with thumb-buttons. Irritatingly, it has proven slightly too sensitive, I think the switches on the mouse buttons are a little too easily activated. But no matter, because…
