This. This right here is what I have been waiting for. The first product in Rocaat's new Sova Gaming Board family is here, and it is especially made for gaming from your lounge, bed, or basically anywhere without access to a regular desk setup.
It has cushioned padding beneath, an ergonomic palm rest, and "ideal" weight distribution and size — ultimately the Sova is designed to be so comfy in your non-conventional gaming space you'll forget you're using it.
The HTC Vive is the most advanced VR system ever sold. Its headset is ridiculously powerful, so you can look around in all directions without a hitch. Its wireless controllers make it easy to interact with objects in the virtual world. Even cooler than all that, the Vive lets you walk around in the game — which sets it apart from every other VR headset ever made.

Not to be confused with the actual Game of Thrones board game, Hasbro has gone and pumped out a Westeros-flavoured version of Risk. Risk already has about a billion different variations based on popular licenses, so I guess this isn't entirely unexpected. In fact, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on it.

With the launch of Windows 10 upon us, Microsoft is making good on its promise from earlier this year: Windows 10 users can now stream gameplay footage from Xbox One. Which is awesome, and it might finally convince me to buy a new Xbox.
I sit down in the dilapidated wooden chair, and put on the headset. It's the 12th time this week. I've gotten really used to Sony's Project Morpheus, and I love the way it feels. I pretty much just press a button to pull the display closer to my face, and boom — I'm in another world. I just wish there were more worlds I'd actually like to explore.
There's a new 1TB Xbox One out, and that means the original 500GB console will drop in price a little — good for frugal console fanboys.
