PowerA MOGA XP5-X Bluetooth Controller

If you are someone who enjoys playing mobile games, this is exactly what you have been looking for. Let’s be honest, holding a phone isn’t the same as holding a controller. This is where the PowerA MOGA XP5-X comes in. This controller (and clip) allows gamers to play on the go while giving them an edge over their competition. Do you play Call of Duty Mobile? Fortnite? No problem. You will now be at the same level as console players. And if your battery starts to drain, you can simply recharge it with the built-in power bank without having to fool around. This controller is comfortable, especially if you are used to playing Xbox, and it offers 2 mappable buttons. It’s also super affordable, especially right now while it’s on sale.


ROCCAT Syn Pro Air Wireless PC Gaming Headset

Typically, the ROCCAT Syn Pro Air headset would cost you $ 149 USD, but it is currently $ 50. Which is absolutely a good deal! It is hands down one of the best wireless gaming headsets for PCs on the market today. It provides crystal clear audio input and output featuring TruSpeak technology for chatting with friends and superhuman hearing and 3D sound to ensure every pin drop in the game is audible. The Syn Pro Air is also incredibly stylish with 16.8 million different colors to choose from. Add in the fast charging capability and battery life is never even something to worry about. We reviewed this helmet earlier this year saying: “It doesn’t complicate anything, allows for incredible customization and is a very complete headset that takes immersive gaming to the next level.”

Elgato Creek Bridge

This one is aimed at streamers and content creators. The Elgato Stream Deck is exactly what you were looking for to make your life easier. With its 15 customizable LCD keys, you can press them to adjust your sound, switch between games, launch media (games or music) and much more. Customize which keys do what and you’ll never have to worry about your flow smoothly. Oh and sure enough, the Stream Deck doesn’t just work with Twitch or YouTube, it works with a variety of other software for full integration like OBS, Xsplit, and Mixer. Moreover, you can use it to control game capture and it is very easy to set up and use. It really seems obvious.

PlayStation DualSense Wireless Controller – Cosmic Red

If you’ve managed to grab a PS5 in the past year or so, you’ve probably got all of your friends to try it out. But if you haven’t chosen another controller yet, you probably had to split your time on the system. Well, if you haven’t picked up another controller yet, the Cosmic Red PS5 Controller is worth the wait. Make no mistake, the White DualSense Controllers are sleek as hell, but Cosmic Red is even better. Plus, it definitely gives off those holiday spirit vibes. It’ll set you back a few extra bucks, but like the white DualShock controller for PS4, it’s going to be the controller everyone will be jealous of.


Razer V2 Chroma Base Station

Razer V2 Chroma Base Station. Not to be confused with any space station. Okay, I’ll stop with the lame jokes. If you are looking for a clean look for your PC setup, this will help you tremendously. The Razer Base Station V2 Chroma is a headphone stand that will not only help keep your desk tidy, but also contemporary and stylish. It’s all thanks to the chroma lighting at the bottom that fully syncs with popular titles, as well as other Razer and partner hardware and gear. Which means if you just need to charge your headset a bit, you’ll still be engrossed in your gaming. It also comes with a non-slip rubber base to make sure your expensive headset isn’t about to fall. easily, even if you have cats that might hit it. It sounds like a solid investment to me.
