I always figured that Mario would drive something a little less flash. Probably a hatchback. Probably without power steering.

Tech Tuesday | Gunnar Optiks – Intercept Kryptonite Gaming Glasses

Welcome to Tech Tuesday at Green Man Gaming, where we take a weekly look at gaming accessories, awesome hardware, and a whole lot more. This week, Alex takes a look at the Intercept Kryptonite Gaming Glasses from Gunnar Optiks.

This week, I was given the task of reviewing the Intercept Kryptonite Glasses from Gunnar Optiks. To help differentiate a little from other optical accessories in the market, Gunnar specs are the only ones to be backed and recommended by medical professionals, using patented technology to reduce eye strain, improve comfort and focus, and protect your eyes from fluorescent light, glare, and uncomfortable air currents.
I won't lie, going into this I was a little skeptical of the glasses, not fully understanding how they would work for me, especially as I have to wear glasses on a day to day basis. But after spending some serious time with the Intercepts, I have to say that I'm pretty impressed.

Tech Tuesday | PDP Afterglow Kral Wireless Headset

Welcome to Tech Tuesday at Green Man Gaming, where we take a weekly look at gaming accessories, awesome hardware, and a whole lot more. This week, we take a look at the PDP Afterglow Kral Wireless Headset.

I do admit I’ve had the same pair of gaming headphones for about 8 years now. They're so beaten up that I just have to put it out of its misery. I have no idea how they're still working. Thankfully, the PDP Afterglow Kral Wireless Headset came my way. Finally, I'm in the future! Though it's primarily advertised as a PS4 headset, it's completely compatible with PC as well, to the point that you should be able to just plug it in, and it will work.

Inside the box I found surprisingly very few things: The headset, the usb dongle, a micro-usb cable and an aux cable. Nothing else. Oh, and manuals too, but I didn't read those. I know how to plug a USB stick in (wrong way, wrong war, right way, just like it always is).

The first thing I notice about the headset is how bulky it was compared to my old one. Makes sense though, since it does have a fully integrated microphone, and presumably needs its space to be solid, padded and house it’s wireless audio and charging functionality. Without turning it on or plugging it in, I jammed it on my head to see how comfortable it was initially. Pretty good. We'll talk more about long-term comfort later.

GMG on Twitch – Streaming Schedule 24th August 2015

It's Monday, and so it's time for your weekly rundown of what we've got coming up on the Green Man Gaming Twitch channel!

Rocket League – Five Reasons You Need It In Your Life

I'm hopelessly addicted to Rocket League. Since I bought it a couple of months back, I've been playing it every single day, with the exception of five days last week spent in verdant isolation somewhere in the Westcountry, where people talk like pirates, public transport is a pipedream, and people tend to have blood in their cider streams.

I missed it greatly.

The joy of Rocket League is that it's a sports game that really doesn't look anything like a sports game. Until you start playing, that is, and the competitive spirit grabs you in its jaws like a dog with a bone, and you live and die by every single bounce of the giant ball.

Well, I'll be swiping right on this one. [via]
