So why buy a steelseries rival 700? Well there's quite a few good reasons why...
The main one for me is the fact that it has the pixart 3360 sensor which is commonly known as the finest mouse sensor known to man. Also it has Tactile feedback... Which works certain games. Counter Strike Go for example. The great thing about this feature is that you can configure different vibration patterns, to alert you to different events. For example headShot, low ammo, low life..Which means you can keep your eyes glued to the game play and not in game feed. But the question still remains how do you kill that which has no life?
Also the Organic light emitting diode screen on the side is a nice touch... For spectators. It gives it a little more bling than the rival 700s rivals. Using the steelseries software you can customise what it displays, and you can also have it display game stats which works well for CS Go... And It's almost as if it were made specifically for CS Go.
The rival 700 also has prism rgb back lighting behind the scroll wheel and logo on the back. These organic lights can be customised and can display 19.8million different colours. Which makes it wonderfully colourful .
As for comfortability it's got a unique style and shape. The button positionings are good all but one... Which is button 6, which is switched off by default probably for that reason it is hard to reach, but it could be handy for something... Still trying to figure that out.
The CPI button is placed nicely so that you don't hit it by accident and you can switch between two settings which you can custom configure between 100 and 16000 CPI.
The Scroll wheel is smooth and just feels nice. It registers perfectly each click Regardless of your scrolling speed and can be clicked down. There's a lot of custom tweaks you can do with this mouse using the software. But ain't nobody got time for that right now. I suggest you do a bit of reading on that.
So my overall opinion... I really like it. It's a bit flashier than some, it's a bit heavier than some at 135grans. But performance wise it's very very good. style wise it's awesome and when your friends glance over at your OLED screen they can see just how awesome your doing and you will know thanks to its good vibrations... And it just might help you kill that which has no life.
It's a WhatGear game review of the NEW UFC 2 game. Check it out! find out what I made of this new addition to EA's combat sports portfolio. Also check out WhatGear at the the UFC London event earlier in the year.
Head over to the official Street Fighter Beta page to sign up. The Beta will only be running for 3 days. There will be a different selection of characters to test out this time around.
We heard that we should see Ryu, Birdie, Cammy, Necalli, Nash, and Laura. Also there is a chance we will see Dhalsim and Zangief join later...and I heard there may be more surprises in store.
Earlier this year WhatGear where in attendance at the EGX in Birmingham. I managed to get an interview with one of the tournament commentators. Also AV Dave

WhatGear have got you a link for the Rainbow 6 Siege BETA. Hey check out this interview we got with one of the lead developers from the game Scott Mitchell. I think this was AV Dave's worlds 2nd ever interview.
Take a look at where it began. Sony putting out a video highlighting the major mistake Microsoft made leading up to the Xbox One launch.
Fast forward to today. Microsoft have found a way to emulate the Xbox 360 inside the Xbox One. Which means they currently hold an ace up their sleeve with backward compatibility. Check out this video see what you think.
Is it a low blow? Does anyone care about backward compatibility now next gen is in full stride? Which console do you prefer and why? Let me know...
I know a lot of people over here in the UK aren't that familiar with the sport of MMA. It is in my mind one of the finest sports known to mankind! I'm really looking forward to this game. I just hope they get the controls right. The first UFC game on Xbox 360/PS3 was a pad destroyer... like a modern version of track and field(don't know what I'm on about...Don't worry about it).
Head over the PSN store on your PS4 now and check it out. Could this be the finest Street Fighter game known to man?
Also check out these exclusive WhatGear Interviews from thus years EGX Gaming event in Birmingham.
Have to say I'm super happy they haven't overpowered the super powers. Check out this panaramic shot. Shot on my soon to be retired trusty note 3. That's just a fraction of what you WILL see in our 360 video.
