HyperX Cloud Stinger Wireless Gaming Headset Review

HyperX Cloud Stinger Wireless Gaming Headset Review

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use. Wireless gaming headsets – good ones anyway – are still a luxury item. Most of IGN’s favorites cost $150 or more. The HyperX Cloud Stinger Wireless, a $100 wireless headset for PC and PS4 (See it at Amazon), offers a slightly cheaper way to cut the cord and go wireless. (Fun fact that’s not on the box: It also works on the Nintendo Switch in docked mode). The Cloud Stinger Wireless bridges the gap between budget wireless headsets with subpar features and the mid-high end devices that set the standards for the category. The wired version of the Cloud Stinger is our favorite cheap headset, but the wireless version is double the price, so let’s see if it’s worth it. Continue reading…

Pupperazzi is Like Pokémon Snap but With Dogs

Pupperazzi is Like Pokémon Snap but With Dogs

It’s been 20 years since Pokémon Snap captivated junior photographers with Pikachu riding a surfboard, among other things, and for whatever reason, Nintendo has refrained from producing a sequel in all that time. That said, diehard fans may be in luck with the arrival of Pupperazi, a game that borrows heavily from Pokémon Snap’s core concept of photographing animals doing weird things, but this time it’s with very good dogs. Announcing Pupperazzi: The Dog Spotting Video Game! Continue reading…

What We Want From Pokemon Sword and Shield at E3

What We Want From Pokemon Sword and Shield at E3

I’ve waited for Pokemon on the Switch – or any home console, for that matter – for a long, long time. Sure, we got Pokemon Let’s Go last year (which we thought was great), and there were others like Snap or Colosseum, but those just didn’t carry the same weight of a full-fledged core Pokemon game – one that’s meant to carry on the torch from Pokemon Red and Blue, and the most recent Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. One of my very first op-eds as a full-time editor at IGN was 5 Things We Want in a Pokemon Switch Game, back in April 2017. During that year’s E3 we learned there was, indeed, a core Pokemon RPG in development for the Switch, but got no other details, not even a logo. The next year, in May 2018, we were reassured it was still coming (in 2019) and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee, Let’s Go Pikachu, and Pokemon Quest were announced in one fell swoop,  a smart move for The Pokemon Company.

The Deadwood Cast Brings You Up to Speed for the HBO Movie

The Deadwood Cast Brings You Up to Speed for the HBO Movie

Roughly 13 years after HBO canceled the award-winning series, Deadwood is finally getting the proper conclusion its creators, cast and fans have long waited for in the form of a two-hour feature film, premiering May 31 on HBO. It’s scripted by series creator David Milch and directed by Dan Minahan. Set a decade after the final episode, Deadwood: The Movie picks up in 1889 as South Dakota becomes the 40th state in the Union. A U.S. Senator has come to Deadwood to commemorate this momentous occasion … George Ambrose Hearst. Yes, the same rich and powerful villain who lorded over Deadwood in Season 3 and whose greedy misdeeds led to murder has returned, reopening old wounds for the remaining residents of Deadwood. Hearst now has the political might— and the ruthless gunmen — to protect him as he pursues his own personal agenda in town. Can these misfit residents, who have so often been at odds with one another for various reasons, unite to confront a common foe and protect their community? Continue reading…
