Mad Catz Unveils Tournament Edition Mouse, Keyboard

Mad Catz announces its new Tournament Edition S.T.R.I.K.E keyboard and M.M.O mouse built for gamers.

By Tyler Lee | Ubergizmo Gaming keyboards and mice are designed to deliver better performance than with regular keyboards and mice, and to a certain extent there is some truth this. Keyboards and mice built for gaming tend to feature more buttons, which gamers can assign with macros. Gaming mice are generally faster and more sensitive, which is particularly important when playing FPS games. If you’re in the market for a new keyboard and mouse, Mad Catz might have something for you as they have recently added some new products to their Tournament Edition range of gaming peripherals. Starting with the keyboard, the Tournament Edition S.T.R.I.K.E keyboard features an aluminum chassis and will sport 109 mechanical keys of...

Atari Reveals Alone in the Dark Reboot for PC

Atari's latest PC reboot is Alone in the Dark: Illumination.

By Jeremy Peel | PCGamesN Alone in the Dark is getting another reboot, and a subtitle that can’t be written in a sans-serif font without looking like roman numerals. Illumination is a PC-only game due out in the autumn. Atari says the game will be shown to journalists at PAX Prime in Seattle later this month. Here's its new website. Alone in the Dark is remembered as a Lovecraft-inspired, haunted house-set horror game with three DOS sequels in the early ‘90s. It represented one of the earliest uses of polygonal 3D, and was by all accounts upsettingly good. But its most recent reboot, in 2008, was simply upsetting: a brave first-person puzzler marred by...

92% of PC Game Sales Last Year were Digital

According to new research, the vast majority of gamers are buying PC games through Steam and other digital stores instead of the old brick and mortar retailers.

By Tyler Lee | Ubergizmo Back in the good old days, getting your hands on a new PC game would require heading down to your local gaming retail store and picking up a physical copy of the game itself. That practice is still in effect, although based on the latest numbers gathered by research firm DFC Intelligence, it seems that a whopping 92% of PC game sales in 2013 were digital. Speaking to the folks at PCR, the research firm added that they believe this trend will continue and rise in 2014. In many ways this hardly comes as a surprise. After all, why take up space with boxes and DVDs and manuals when all you really need is the game, right? However there are some gamers out there who still prefer physical due to its...

Now available to download for free, Voxel Rush puts player's reflexes to the test in a first-person racing experience where they must avoid colliding with voxel-shaped objects at a breakneck speed.

Indie Cult-Hit Goat Simulator Migrates to Mobile

The physics-based PC phenomenon known as Goat Simulator heads to Android and iOS.

by NVISION Staff Originally developed by Swedish studio Coffee Stain Games as a tongue-in-cheek prototype for a game jam competition, Goat Simulator's absurd premise helped draw the attention of gamers around the Internet and eventually Valve as it was made into a full-blown game released on Steam. As its name implies, Goat Simulator puts you in control of a goat as it explores its surroundings in a physics-based adventure, which includes licking objects and occasionally getting struck by incoming traffic. While beyond bizarre and rather buggy, the game provides some genuine entertainment value if you don't take it too seriously. Now mobile gamers will be able to partake in the madness that is Goat Simulator as the...
