Hori Pad FPS Plus Review

Hori Pad FPS Plus Review

When it comes to supplying high-quality products in different gaming genres, Hori seems to always be right up there in the list of go-to brands, especially with the Sony brand. They already have a product licensed by the entertainment giant in the form of the TAC Pro, but for those who have been following their forays in the FPS genre you may recall that they had a formidable gamepad for FPS-gaming in the form of the Hori Pad FPS Plus. Let’s have a look at ...

Qanba Crystal Joystick Review

Qanba Crystal Joystick Review

If you were a fan of the Qanba, especially it’s Q-line of arcade sticks (like the Q4, for instance), you may have been wondering as to why they were in the dark for a brief period of time that fighting games started to gain momentum on the PS4. Look no more as they had released two new products into the fray, beginning with the Qanba Crystal.   Sizing Up The Product Dimensions Measuring approximately 17 inches long, 11 inches wide and 5 inches ...

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 ...

TAC PRO For The PS4 Review

TAC PRO For The PS4 Review

Earlier in the year I wrote about the natural feel of FPS gaming through a keyboard and mouse and how it gives the player a more intuitive and responsive feel when going up against the online console worlds of PSN and XBox Live. And while there may be some ethical questions that may occur from these, we cannot deny that there is a market of gamers who prefer this kind of control setup and are willing to invest in what can even out the playing field ...

8Bitdo Retro Receiver For NES Review

8Bitdo Retro Receiver For NES Review

The realm of gaming in the 21st century may generally be classified as who has the better, more crisp graphics combined with a fuller, more engaging gaming experience, but in the midst of all that is still a special place for something more minimal coupled with a simple and easy-to-pick-up game dynamic. 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 ...

New PlayStation 4 Dual Shock Wireless Controller Review

New PlayStation 4 Dual Shock Wireless Controller Review

Over the past couple of weeks, a lot of buzz has come about from Sony’s recent announcements of both a newer (read: slimmer) PS4, as well as a 4K-resolution ready PS4 Pro. And while there’s plenty to say about the hardware specs for the new variants, ever notice the lack of enthusiasm to the new PlayStation 4 Dual Shock wireless controller? Not gonna lie, but it does concern me that little fanfare was given to the new DS4, and it may probably have more to do with the ...

New XBox One Controller Review

Microsoft was not gun-shy during their press conference in E3 2016, with a promise of new hardware and an extended game experience across different Microsoft-based platforms. The latter note is an interesting one as they have made it so that you can enjoy your favorite games regardless of where you are playing it. Definitely good news for players on both a Windows 10 and XBox One console. With this extended experience, a common question that may have been asked seems to be an integral ...

Coming off the coattails of the recently concluded E3 and months after GDC, there is a lot of buzz that is surrounding Sony’s upcoming product release. Still, there are those who may be unaware of tech updates that have come out and may be wondering to themselves, “What is the PlayStation VR?” There are possibly a huge pile of background information that is readily available to give a backgrounder from where this article derives from, to say the least. But all the same, it is important to dial it back and get a better idea of ...

SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Gaming Controller Review

SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Gaming Controller Review

When I wrote about using game controllers for iOS devices, I knew that there would be a select number of products that could be considered the cream of the crop for smartphone controllers in the market. What I was not aware of (and in doing this SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Gaming Controller review) was that I would be sharing about a product so great, Apple endorses it. Not to say, though, that a previous review I did for another controller (the Gamevice) is not in that same level, as this ...
