Gamer Grip Review

Gamer Grip Review

I talk a lot about preventing dust and residue from dirtying peripherals here in Gaming Controller for You, and as much as there is a product or few that prevent sweat and grime from staying on your controllers, sometimes stopping it from the source might be the best solution. And so here we are with a Gamer Grip review that will hopefully have you, the reader, consider the benefits of hand-rubbed grips.   So What Is It? As per the product’s official website, it is “a non-slip, antiperspirant formula...

HipShotDot Red Dot Sight Attachment Review

HipShotDot Red Dot Sight Attachment Review

Aim-assisting products are quite a small niche in the gaming market, but the HipShotDot Red Dot Sight Attachment happens to be one of the best ones out in the market today. And while no product or accessory can replicate the same results you get from constant practice and experience, it always helps to get a bit of an assist (in this case, sighted assist) to better their shooting accuracy!   Setting Up The HipShotDot Installing the HipShotDot is pretty straightforward. First, plug...

So in actuality, there is still a place for good ‘ol retro gaming! Thankfully, a Hong Kong-based company known as 8Bitdo has been making waves this year thanks...

Gamevice Controller for iPhone Review

Gamevice Controller for iPhone Review

When I recently wrote about gaming controllers for the iOS devices,  I was trying to look for that one product that would really set the precedence for other product offerings out there. I figured later on that the Gamevice controller for iPhone would be the best place to start.     Product Overview The first thing I am assuming will get your attention from that quick product overview is the price – at practically USD 100, it definitely looks to be on the higher end of the...

Nyko Modular Charge Station for Xbox One Review

When I posted an article about charging stations for controllers, the Nyko Modular Charge Station for Xbox One was first product that I had in mind to review. At the time, I didn’t know if it was because of the name and brand recognition/visibility was the main factor, but with further digging there are definitely a couple of things that they did right on this product.     Product Overview   The first noticeable thing about the Nyko Modular Charge Station is the price point.

Brook Super Converter Review

Brook Super Converter Review

I figured it’d be good to do a follow-up to an article I wrote not too long ago, but in order to full appreciate what the Brook Super Converter has done over the past year, we have to look back at both the lifespan of a video game console and its corresponding (and varying) controller types associated with them. Looking at it from their initial release to the launch of that console’s successor, we can make the argument that the average lifespan of a game console is...

SquidGrip Review

In the similar vein as a previous post about the benefits of using a silicone cover to encase your controller, there was a lot of mention about having a good controller grip. And while some gamers find having a protective skin do the work for them, there are others who prefer having the grip around the handles where it’s needed most. Thankfully there’s something like SquidGrip, which we will talk about today.   Here’s the skinny on controllers When a controller...
