Four Last Things

Steam Shovel: 4 great PC games you may have missed in March

We delve into PC games you may have missed in this busy spring season: Four Last Things, Snake Pass, Stories Untold, and Cosmic Express.

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is a fine remaster of an exhilarating game, at a not-so-fine price

With the original Bulletstorm port basically broken on PC after the demise of Games for Windows Live, it's a bit rough for Gearbox to ask people to pay up for a working version—remaster or no remaster.

Razer BlackWidow X Chroma

Razer BlackWidow X Chroma review: A beautiful keyboard, but kind of a pain

Razer’s stripped-down BlackWidow X Chroma isn’t so much an improvement over the original BlackWidow as a lateral move. One that gathers a lot of dust.

Best gaming keyboards of 2017: Our picks for the top budget, mid-tier, and RGB boards

Choosing a gaming keyboard is a matter of personal taste. We’ve sifted through the latest and greatest to come up with our top recommendations.

Logitech G810/G610

Logitech G610/G810 review: A modern twist on a classic and understated design

Logitech's G610 and G810 are the most restrained keyboards we've seen from the company in a while, though it's a shame RGB lighting is restricted to the Romer-G variants.

Aukey KM-G3

Aukey KM-G3 review: This RGB keyboard costs just $80, but there's a catch

The Aukey KM-G3 is a decent RGB keyboard for those on a tight budget, but it compromises on quality.

Cougar Attack X3

Cougar Attack X3 review: An unpretentious board with genuine Cherry keys

The Cougar Attack X3 is a fairly basic keyboard for those who still want genuine Cherry MX switches—though its non-standard bottom row may slow you down.

SteelSeries Apex M800

SteelSeries Apex M800 review: Yet another custom keyboard switch, but it's compelling

The SteelSeries Apex M800 and its custom QS1 switch put on a good light show, but it falls just shy of outdoing keyboards with Cherry MX keys.

HyperX Alloy FPS

HyperX Alloy FPS review: The esteemed headset manufacturer turns out a solid new peripheral

It’s not quite the industry-wide shakeup that ensued with the arrival of the HyperX Cloud, but the HyperX Alloy is a fine debut.

G.Skill KM780

G.Skill KM780 review: One of the best RGB-enabled keyboards to date

The G.Skill KM780 borrows some of the best features from its competitors and adds a few of its own for a stellar debut.

Yooka-Laylee

Yooka-Laylee review: This nostalgia-fueled platformer is Banjo-Kazooie 4 in everything but name

Playtonic's Kickstarter promised a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie and that's what Yooka-Laylee delivers, flaws and all.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect Andromeda review: As vast and empty as space itself

Mass Effect: Andromeda has literally an entire galaxy's worth of potential, but squanders it on meaningless missions and awkward dialogue.

Palmer Luckey

This week in games: Oculus founder departs, Mad Catz shutters, Battlefield 1 gets friendly

Plus: Rocket League gets fast and furious, The Secret World goes free-to-play, and Total War: Warhammer 2 becomes official. This is gaming news for March 27 to 31.
