Long known in the PC communities as a manufacturer delivering on promises of peripherals and kit with just that little something extra when it comes to invention and ingenuity, Corsair have now turned their trained eye to the gaming market with their new range of target specific treats.

Top of the list of Corsair wizardry is the latest batch of keyboards in the all-new ‘RGB Range’. This cracking collection of finger-friendly lovelies look all set to take the world of the online gamer by storm with their second-to-none style, features and the near patented Corsair reputation for peak performance in all area’s.

K95 RGB, K70 RGB, and K65 Gaming Keyboards

Each key switch is built with the exacting precision of Cherry’s self-cleaning, corrosion-proof Gold-Crosspoint electrical contacts, and with over five billion sold, Cherry MX mechanical key switches are the premier choice of professional gamers and enthusiasts who demand uncompromising reliability and performance. Combined with Corsair Gaming’s distinctive aircraft-grade aluminium baseplate, Cherry MX RGB key switches deliver a professional-level gaming keyboard that ensures both consistency and accuracy with the touch of every key.

The K95, K70, and K65 RGB keyboards exhibit Corsair’s hallmark features: sleek design, ultra-precision components, and sturdy construction that guarantee long-lasting performance.

Technical specifications for the new Corsair Gaming keyboards read like a ‘who’s who’ of must-have components and features for any manufacturer looking to put up a challenge to the undoubted intentions made by Corsair with this new collection.

  • 100% German-made Cherry MX RGB mechanical Red, Blue, or Brown key switches (K65 RGB available with Red key switches)
  • 16.8 million multicolour per-key backlighting for virtually unlimited customization
  • Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) enables users to create and customize their own lighting patterns, animations, and macros

These customization options let gamers match their PC system lighting, find gaming keys faster, and provide critical visual feedback for executing in-game objectives. 

Corsair Gaming understands that gamers demand choice when it comes to their hardware, so the K95, K70, and K65 RGBs cater to your every need – including size. All three support complete macro programmability on any key, with the K95 RGB offering an additional array of 18 dedicated macro keys and dedicated media-keys. In contrast, the compact 10-keyless K65 RGB removes the number pad and media keys for a desk-space-saving design, while the K70 RGB offers the standard keyboard layout and media keys that have already made its predecessor the choice for serious gamers.

Starpoint Gemini 2 Readies Its Rocket for Steam This Week

Starpoint Gemini 2              GmPWhere Will You Stand When the Gemini Universe Expands on Friday, September 26?

Iceberg Interactive and Little Green Men Games announced today the launch date of their hugely popular, community-driven space sim-RPG Starpoint Gemini 2.

With Starpoint Gemini 2, space-fans can captain their own space ship and roam the galaxy in 3D, in this tactical space simulator filled with tons of RPG depth.

Captain your own space ship and roam the galaxy in 3D in this tactical space simulator with tons of RPG depth! Space has never looked so inviting – but images can betray…

It has been two years since the end of the second Gemini war, and the situation in the war-torn system is further from resolution than ever before. The collection of freedom fighters named Gemini League is now reduced to a small group, with no power or influence, after losing their leaders. The Empire meanwhile, has used the re-opened Starpoint to occupy the once renegade Gemini sector – and beyond.

A multitude of Imperial warship fleets and mammoth mother ships have crushed every trace of opposition. The situation was looking bleak, when they suddenly halted their armada and re-shifted their focus on fortifying Starpoint with staggering numbers. Rumors soon spread that they were afraid of something coming after them through the T-gate, from what was supposed to be the core of the Empire. What are they running from that makes even the mighty Empire tremble?

Starpoint Gemini 2 will be released on Steam Friday, September 26, 2014.

Dragon Ball Z Xenoverse – Exclusive characters to join the cast!

Dragonball Xenoverse       GmP image Mira (1)After revealing a much appreciated Avatar feature, BANDAI NAMCO Games continues to pave its road towards freshness with the announcement of 4 new characters to join DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE universe along with new features for the Avatar!

Ever heard of Mira, Towa, TokiToki and Supreme Kai of Time? All of those new characters will have a major importance in DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE:

· Mira, the artificial creature trying to be the strongest creature in the universe, and Towa, a dark scientist coming from a demonic world, seem to be up to no good… They are currently planning to change the DRAGON BALL universe as we know it. Just like the evil magician Babidi in the past, they are trying to gather as much “Kiri” as possible. For what purpose…? Only Supreme of Kai Time knows.

After discovering their plans, Trunks was looking for someone worthy enough to take on those new foes and stumbled upon YOU, the player.

 

· The Supreme Kai of time looks like a child but is far from being this young… Indeed, 75 000 000 years ago, this deity showed up for the first time and seems closely tied with the bird called TokiToki! Behind the disturbed and weirdly acting birdie, lies a very powerful life-form that can produce time!

As the main heroes of the game, all the players’ Avatars will have to be perfectly trained to take on those huge challenges… To do so, gamers will have to carefully choose which Original character they want to have as a “Master”! All the skillset and training patterns will vary depending on which Master (Goku, Vegeta, etc.) gamers have chosen! The “Master System” goes even further than that: the Avatar’s sensei can be changed and will be intervening on the battlefield during the battles!
