Carry your Amiibos in style with this official Super Mario Question Block Case - £14.99 at GAME

If you want to carry around your Amiibo collection in style, or indeed practically anything in style, Amazon and GAME are selling a frankly gorgeous carry case for £14.99 and £15.15 respectively. You've got room for 10-12 figures, or more likely just random stuff, and it'd make for one heck of a Christmas present.

I'm not actually sold on Amiibos yet, since their functionality is fairly limited right now, but I still covet this case so badlyThanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

PS4 Orb GP3 Headset £14.86 at ShopTo

PS4 Orb GP3 Headset | ShopTo | £14.86 (save £15) | Review

ShopTo are currently selling the GP3 for half-price. The extra earpiece makes the GP3 Gaming Headset a tempting proposition for those of you wanting to really lose yourself in a game’s audio. This headset is especially useful for those of you gaming at night when other folks in the house are asleep. As with the other orb mics, the quality is excellent. The insane amount of cabling is somewhat off-putting (it plugs into your TV, console and controller), but at least you don’t have to worry about the headset draining the controller's battery as it's powered by the PS4. Check out my review above for a full lowdown.

Orb Accessories PS4 Headset Range Review

When looking online for headsets you’re usually flooded with options and a range of incomprehensible user reviews or samey tech descriptions lazily copied from the manufacturer’s PR sheet. Well we thought it was about time to try out a few and give you an in-depth opinion.

With the free bundled headset with the PS4 offering terrible mic quality, I looked towards some third-party manufacturers to do better. So today, I’m reviewing three different PS4 headsets from Orb Accessories including the Wired Chat, the Elite Chat and the GP3.

Orb Wired Chat Headset

Average Price £9.99 – Available at time of writing for £6.38 via GameSeek (use code CELEBRATE for free delivery)

Orb Accessories PS4 Headset Range Review

First up in my Orb review trilogy is the one simply listed as Orb Wired chat Headset (PS4). This is the entry model in the series and can be found online for between £7.50 and £10. It’s the lightest headset of the three, weighing in at around 50g.

The lightweight adjustable frame sits comfortably on your head with an adjustable mic arm rotating the boom mic to whichever angle you please. This is primarily designed to be worn with the earpiece on the left, but thanks to the bendable hardwire casing on the mic you can wear it on the other side too. The soft foam padding on the earpiece is extremely comfortable and lightweight, which is especially appealing if you feel like larger earpieces are a bit ‘sweaty’. The earpiece volume can be adjusted via a dial on a lightweight block on the cable.

Razer Orbweaver Review | Power In The Palm Of Your Hand

Razer Orbweaver Review | Power In The Palm Of Your Hand

Manufacturer: Razer

RRP: £114.99

Getting the edge on the virtual battlefields of gaming is becoming a much more pressing concern in this age of eSports and online mockery, but PC gamers usually don’t get the flashy peripherals outside of keyboards and the amazingly extravagant (such as the glorious Oculus Rift.) It is for this reason that, a few years ago when I had some spare cash to my name, the Razer Nostromo immediately caught my eye as I was looking to treat myself. Ultimately, after a few days of trying it out, I opted to return it and instead get my trusty Lycosa keyboard, but even though the gaming-focused peripheral failed to win me over at the time, I recognised its usefulness as a gaming tool.

So when Razer asked me to test out the Nostromo’s successor, the Orbweaver, I was more than eager to put the device through its paces.

Before we get onto how it performs as device, let’s talk tech specs – the Orbweaver provides gamers with a gaming keypad that comes with twenty programmable keys, backlit to allow late-night gaming, with adjustable wrist and palm supports. On the side is a module for the users thumb, providing an 8-way programmable thumbstick and two more additional buttons. In short, it provides all the inputs a player could possibly need in one hand.

Razer Arctosa (2012) Review | Razerrection - The Lazerus Keyboard

Manufacturer: Razer

RRP: £44.99

For the last few years now I have come to rely on my Razer Lycosa for my gaming (and typing) needs. Its comfortable design and response time has made it one of my better peripheral purchases, but it wasn’t without its flaws (ie. keys randomly locking and an LED backlight that wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.) So enter the Arctosa – a keyboard that aimed to improve the user experience for gamers, but unfortunately the first incarnation of the Arctosa a few years ago was met with heavy criticism due to its dark keys making it almost impossible to see what you were actually typing. A second edition of the keyboard, which I am currently typing on, was released last year with silver stickers for key identification to address the flaw.

The Arctosa proudly boasts having “slim keycap structure with hyperesponse technology,” which translates to having flat form keys to reduce latency. It also features “selective anti-ghosting capability around the WASD cluster, to avoid any issues that might otherwise occur with other keyboards when multiple keys are pressed at the same time. It all sounds impressive, but does the Arctosa deliver an input experience worth investing in from a gaming standpoint and, more importantly, would it match my experiences with the Lycosa?

Razer Naga Hex League of Legends Collector's Edition & Goliathus Mouse Mat Review | Legendary?

Manufacturer: Razer

RRP: £79.99

Getting a competitive edge is everything in a MOBA, so much like a good workman needs the right tools for the job, a decent mouse can make all the difference. With a reputation for quality and monumentally badass design, in steps Razer with a new proposition for League Of Legends fans. The Razer Naga Hex has been off for a refit in the Razer skunkworks, re-emerging as a black and gold-tinted contender aimed squarely at the burgeoning MOBA market.

Razer recently sent us a Razer Naga Hex League Of Legends Collector's Edition on loan, which I'm going to need to abbreviate as we explore its design and features over the course of this review.  And just because I'm feeling generous, I'm also going to throw in a bonus review for the collector's edition Goliathus mouse mat at the end.

Much like the original Naga Hex, the LoL Collector's Edition is an absolute beast on paper. Its 5,600 dpi sensor gives you more precision and customisable sensitivity than you'll rightly ever need (but it's nice to have), while its 6-foot long braided USB 2.0 cable grants you an enormous reach without any latency whatsoever. Make no mistake: this is a serious piece of gaming kit with specs to match the premium price. However, I'm delighted to report that this new version actually improves on its predecessor in a number of welcome ways.

Razer Mamba 4G 2012 Edition Review | A Little Bite Of Luxury

Manufacturer: Razer

RRP: £114.99

Noticing we'd run a few hardware reviews on MadCatz GameSmart range of mice, Razer decided to fire over their 2012 Mamba for us to assess. Presented suspended in its case like a futuristic relic, the  Mamba is probably one of the finest mice, wireless or otherwise, we've ever used. It's a luxurious beast.

No, that's not hyperbole. This is probably the Ferrero Rocher of gaming mice.

Razer make good PC accessories, sometimes great PC accessories, and then there are things like the DeathStalker that require underwear changes. The original Mamba was pretty damn impressive when it emerged back in 2009 with its whopping 5600 dpi,, its ambidextrous design, and its impressive reduction in wireless lag. But the 2012 model takes all of that a step further.

Razer Mamba 4G 2012 Edition Review | A Little Bite Of Luxury

The presentation of the Mamba in the fashion of a Rolex watch, crystallised in rigid plastic, foreshadows the impressive build quality. Strong and strudy, like the DeathAdder before it, the Mamba is finished in a matt black that's soft to the touch but does away with the slippery shininess that accompanies certain other models in this area. The buttons are perfectly weighted, with no hint of delay between your physical action and the triggering of the micro-switches beneath.

The Unfinished Swan Trailer Explores The Story

The Unfinished Swan has received a new trailer that shows off some of the heartbreaking story behind this breakthrough puzzler, chronicling the adventures of a young boy who enters a fantasy world after his mother's death.

Giant Sparrow's debut game was cannily snapped up as a PS3 exclusive by Sony, with PS Move support potentially adding another level of immersion to this intriguing monochromatic title. You can read our Unfinished Swan hands-on preview for more details.

Playstation Move Starter Pack | £29.86 | ShopTo | PS3

If you're a PS3 owner who wants to jump on the motion controls band wagon then you might want to think about picking up a Playstation Move Starter Pack from ShopTo whilst they're still selling them for £29.86, which should save you over £8 on the next best offers out there. The pack includes a Playstation Move: Motion Controller as well as a Playstation Eye Camera. There are plenty of titles that support Move, or that have been made specifically for it, which are best enjoyed when you've got a couple of friends round. Thanks to kingmonkey69 @ HUKD.

Wii Dual Charging Station | £1.99 | Bee | Wii

  • What: Wii Dual Charging Station
  • Where: Bee
  • Current Price: £1.99

Buying batteries for your Wii-motes is probably the single biggest expense you'll rack up if you're a Wii owner, I'm talking from experience here, so I think picking up a dual charging station complete with rechargeable  batteries for £1.99 from Bee is a pretty good deal, plus you'll have a bit more space in the bin rather than having it overflow with used batteries. All you'll need to do is hook up the charge station to the USB slot on your console, then stick your controllers in it to recharge when you're not using them. Thanks to andywedge @ HUKD.

There are plenty of karaoke fans who have jumped into a music game or two, so that they can wail away into a microphone from the comfort of their own living rooms, and if you want to join them then it might be a good idea to pick up a cheap wireless microphone from ShopTo, which'll save you about £2 on the next best offer. The microphone's compatible with games like Band Hero, Rock Band, Guitar Hero, Lips, Lego Rock Band, and Konami Karaoke Revolution. It's also got a battery life of about 15 hours, so you shouldn't have to worry about it dying on you midway through a performance.

The Playstation Move Navigation Controller pairs up with the Motion Controller and lets you take control of your characters movement, and it's a lot easier to use with a Move compatible game than a standard PS3 controller. The device contains a Li-ion battery, which you can charge by hooking it up to your console using a USB cable, so you don't have to worry about forking out loads of money for batteries. You can pick up one of the handy bits of  kit from any of the merchants listed above for £17.99, which'll save you almost £2 on the next best offer coming in from Gameplay.

The pad also functions as a touchpad and there are shortcut buttons that'll get you into either the "Friends" screen, or your "Message Box". Amazon are parting with these useful bits of kit for £8.99, which'll save you £4 on the next best offer coming in form The Game Collection. Thanks to GhettoPunk @ HUKD.

  • What: One Month Xbox Live Gold Subscription
  • Where: Xbox.com
  • Current Price: £1

UPDATE: We've tested this ourselves, and although my account's renewal date is now five months later than it used to be, clicking through has resulted in a message that reads 'Error - Uh oh... that shouldn't have happened. It appears you've found a glitch in the system.'

The terms and conditions clearly state '1 per Account', although you would have thought that they would have tested the new code before it went live. We'll update with any further info.


"You know what, I think my Gold subscription may be coming to end soon!" If that's what's going through your head right now, then get yourself over to Xbox.com quickly, because you can get up to six month's worth of Xbox Live goodness for £6, that's £1 a month!!! To be honest, if you don't think this one's a bargain, you're mad! On top of taking part in your favourite multiplayer games, the gold subscription'll also give you access to Facebook, Twitter, Sky, and Video Chat on your 360, to list a few of its perks.

The promo itself is actually aimed at newcomers to the service, with Microsoft offering one month for Gold services for just one pound, however some crafty HUKD-ers have found out that you can do this numerous times, pushing that renewal date further and further back! Thanks to WarioTBH @ HUKD.
