Rocket League for the Switch – Battle Cars On The Go!

Psyonix’s Rocket League has broken a lot of boundaries in the gaming world. They’ve broken into the E-Sports world with their infectiously competitive game of ‘soccer cars’, and they’ve achieved cross-network play between their various platforms. The premise of Rocket League is simple, you drive a car that is rocket powered and hit the ball into the goal. The game is a cross between soccer and demolition derby, allowing you to fly through the air with boosts in order to score points in the five minute match. But how does this game do on the Nintendo Switch? Continue reading Rocket League for the Switch – Battle Cars On The Go!

The final keyboard you will ever purchase because it has everything you want. For some that can be a HHKB, for others it can be a JM45. For me personally, I was looking for a 60% keyboard with arrow keys. After more research, I decided on the TADA68, and the search for a kit was on.

Life With A Trackball Mouse

For the past couple months, I’ve started to feel an increasing pain in my wrist. This is partially due to my excessive computer usage in the past years after graduating college.

I did stresses and the such and found that while they did alleviate some of my pain, it didn’t reduce drastically enough. A couple days of research later, and we arrive at the trackball.  Continue reading Life With A Trackball Mouse

How to add LEDS to non-backlit Magicforce 68

I recently bought the non backlit Magicforce 68 by Qisan from Mehkee because I wanted to see if I’d like the smaller form factors. The board originally had Outemu Blue switches, but I soon changed them to Gateron Greens since I wanted to be able to apply more force to bottom the switch out (I’ll be making a post soon about soldering switches to a board). I soon realized that this could be a great test board to try out other mods like adding LED’s. Continue reading How to add LEDS to non-backlit Magicforce 68

How do People Hack Into Game Consoles?

Breaking into game consoles is no easy game. These ‘hackers’ aren’t just people that excel at using computers: they have mastered the craft of both reverse engineering computer software, and in some cases hardware, in order to search for vulnerabilities that were unintentionally created by the original developers of the game console.
