Tritton Kunai Pro

Tritton Kunai Pro review: Superior sound, substandard build

Tritton's Kunai Pro is one of the best-sounding entry-level headsets you'll find, but it feels like a stiff wind might snap it in half.

Man of Medan

Man of Medan review: Five friends, a haunted ship, and plenty of ways to die

If you've ever watched a horror film and thought "Why are you doing that?" then Man of Medan is your chance to prove you could do better—though launch-day woes provide a different kind of fright.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey review: Where learning to sharpen a stick is a major achievement

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is an impossibly ambitious game, attempting to summarize the whole of human evolution into the span of a few hours—and succeeding to a surprising degree.

Control

Control review: So good, you might finally stop asking for Alan Wake 2

Control is the culmination of Remedy's entire oeuvre to-date, pairing a top-tier action game with a dense story about the Federal Bureau of Control and the unexplainable horrors locked within. Oh, and there's finally a worthwhile showcase for ray-tracing as well.

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 4 review: The resurrection continues with this surprisingly normal keyboard

Wasteland 3

Hands-on with Wasteland 3: A simplified but still satisfying glimpse of the post-apocalypse

Swiftpoint Z

Swiftpoint Z review: Would you spend $230 on a mouse?

The Swiftpoint Z's exorbitant price is hard to stomach no matter how many gimmicks are crammed in—and there are a lot of gimmicks here. Pressure-sensitive buttons, a gyroscope, and more.

Logitech G Pro X

Logitech G Pro X review: The best headset Logitech's made yet

Logitech's new G Pro X looks great, sounds better, and even features a headset microphone that doesn't suck. If only it were wireless, as well.
