Corsair M65 Pro RGB Mouse and MM800 RGB Polaris Mouse Pad Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2016-10-19 read/post comments()

We have tested M65 Pro on both the MM800 and our trusty ModMyMachine aluminum pad along with the Ghost in Shell, Mafia III, Shadow Warrior, Duke 3D 20th Anniversary World Tour and CS: GO titles: thanks to the rubberized coating and ergonomic side panels, the mouse felt very comfortable, even after two hours of continuous usage. The updated sensor works well on many surfaces, while the MM800 pad and its low friction micro-textured surface allowed us to have more precise movements during office work, but also photo and video editing. The re-positioned buttons on the left panel of the M65 Pro are more accessible now to the thumb, while the DPI values up to 12K should satisfy even gamers which… read more

Mafia III Game Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2016-10-10 read/post comments()

Mafia III is a very ambitious project from Hangar 13 and has required quite a bit of work to make it happen and the open-world environment is great! There are of course bugs which you will encounter if you mainly wander off and navigate through the rich environment, meaning that the game was mainly thought for you to follow the story line and not concentrate on other activities. In most of the situations, the game details are great, the story is being told in a unique way like a documentary and we also did like the fact that you can have other allies in order to take down the Italian mob which has betrayed the main character. The driving experience… read more
