HORI Nintendo Switch Split Pad Pro review | Released date

Hello, my fellow gamers today here at my game accessories we are bringing you the Hori Nintendo Switch Split Pad Pro review, with the release date and also where you can pre-order. Most of us wonder if everyone else is thinking the same thing because I would like to ask you fellow gamers this, Did you find the switch’s JOY-CON controllers too small?

If you did, Hori might have come up with the answer, but we will be the judge of that in the upcoming months as we get our hands in one of the remotes. The new grip controller takes advantage of the switches modular design to replace Nintendo smaller option with controllers closer to a traditional gamepad. Let’s get to this review; we all want to know the sweet and technical side of this new remote from Nintendo.


HORI Nintendo Switch Split Pad Pro review

  • Larger grip, buttons, triggers, analog sticks, and D-Pad
  • Programmable rear buttons, Turbo, assignable buttons, and more

The Grip Controller

 

The grip controller is pretty much a tie into the upcoming shooter DAEMON X MACHINA complete with the game theme colors a replacement of the X button with the games’ logo.

Read: DAEMON X MACHINA REVIEW

The good thing is that the remote is compatible with other switch games’. The grip controller offers improvements such as a larger design, developments on the regular JOY_CONS, D-pad, more massive triggers, and a third rear button on each split remote.

They can be programmed, and it also includes a feature called continues fire turbo action, sounds like a fun button.

See THE BEST NINTENDO SWITCH GAMES FOR – 2019

Missing Features

 As cool as this remote looks, a few features are missing if you compare to the JOY-CON features like the gyro sensor, HD rumble accelerometers, NFC, and the IR sensor.

What that means is that users will not be able to use motion control aiming with the new grip controller. The halves’ grip controllers only work when attached to the switch as they have no wireless capabilities.

 Is this Nintendo’s first attempt to improve the JOY-CON design?

 This improvement is not Hori’s first attempt to improve the JOY-CON. Last year they released a replacement for LEFT-HAND JOY-CON, which replace Nintendo’s push buttons with a traditional D-Pad when it first published until it had battery issues. Still, those problems have been a dress which has now paved the way for the grip controllers.

 When is the Release Date?

 Now it has been announced the released date in North America, The HORI Nintendo Switch Split Pad Pro set to launch first in Japan in September 2019, following North America on September 30, 2019, thanks to Amazon you can now pre-order.

PlayStation 4 wireless remote review


Playstation 4 wireless remote review

 

Hello my fellow gamers, today, we will review the technical features of the PlayStation 4 wireless remote. From upgrades, new features, and specs. We all know that an update was need it from the PlayStation 3 DualShock 3, which one of the main problems was the battery life while playing. Let’s address this because it is essential the battery life of one of my biggest dislikes about the last remote. As DualShock 3, the battery life was three to five hours of play per charge, as for the DualShock 4 the charged time is four to eight hours of play per charge.

The DualShocker4 represents a super upgrade from its predecessor just in that department, know let us see at the PlayStation 4 wireless remote review. PlayStation went out of the box, as we haven’t seen much of a change since the PS1, as for DualShocker 4 I would say it got a makeover a total overhaul, from the body design to the trigger button everything looks different from its predecessor. I love the rounder bulkier look, a robust quality built. PlayStation called it a “Revolutionary design.”

The DualShock 4 re-defines today’s gaming generation is combining comfort, revolutionary features, precision controls, upgraded analog stick, and trigger buttons allowing unparalleled accuracy. This Innovative technology offers a new experience, and now you can share your greatest gaming moments with a push of a button. Can you believe that? We have come far on remote technology. Let’s keep going to and review the controls.

 

Controls

 

Playstation 4 wireless remote review

Now, this is an update! The analog sticks and trigger buttons have a more fabulous feel and sensitivity. The first time I used it reminded me of what PlayStation said “Unparalleled accuracy with every move,” I said to myself, not bad. They outdid themselves.

The design of the L2 R2 buttons its one of my favorites, that feeling you get that your fingers won’t slip off its amazing, even tho some customers reported of them being a little slippy. An inverted half C (as I called it) gives it a futuristic look. The L1 R1 buttons half moon design and the chamfers added for a cleaner look, and refine analog sticks deserves a two thumbs up from me.

 

The TouchPad and Connectivity

 

Playstation 4 wireless remote review

 

I will say the touchpad is a sweet feature. Wow, would have thought you’ll see a touchpad on top of the remote control? PlayStation hit out of the park with these, let’s look at the touchpad description. The touchpad is a two-point capacities touch with a click mechanism. The multi-touch, clickable touch pad expands gameplay possibilities in some cases faster than the old option, which was the select button like when you have to call time out in a sports game.

 

An Incorporated lightbar in unison with the PlayStation Camera allows for easy player identification and screen adjustments when playing with your friends in the same room, with four different colors to choose from, making this feature ideal for multi-player gaming.

 Here is a list of some games you can play and use the pad. 

  • Blacklight Retribution
  •  Assasin’s Creed IV
  • Lego Marvel Super Heroes
  •  Madden NFL 25, and NBA 2k 14

Let me know in the comments below about your experience using the touchpad and share with me how you implement it in a game. As far as the connectivity, it has one micro-USB, one extension port, one stereo headset jack and also features wireless connectivity via Bluetooth, with a built-in speaker to experience and interact with your game in a whole new way.

 

The Share Button

 

 

Playstation 4 wireless remote control review

 

Sharing content while gaming just hit another level, nor only can you share a screenshot, you can now broadcast with a push of a button. The addition of the Share button makes sharing your greatest gaming moments easy and convenient. You can upload gameplay videos or live-stream your gameplays videos directly from your system, all without disturbing your game in progress, all thanks to this new button. Is that sweet or what?

 

Final thoughts

 

The Dualshock 4 is an excellent remote; the upgrades alone make this controller a must-have. We talk about all the new features, the games you can try the touchpad on. The DualShock 4 is available in fifteen different colors. If I were reading this back in the 80 s’, I would think that the remote is from the future, and indeed it is. PlayStation did a terrific job with the upgrades they are always evolving, improving, advancing and transforming, no wonder is one of the leading gaming brands. Please leave your comments below share your experiences using this remote control, until next time my fellow gamers peace.

Technology has come far now to get this kind of product before; you had to spend quite a buck. Let me know your thought on the comments below.

Why Gaming Headsets worth it? – Improve your game

 

Are you still using regular headphones when gaming?

From the dawn of time, communication is a crucial role in survival; you have always needed to communicate for many reasons; online gaming is no different in today gaming world. Audio plays a significant role in the gaming experience. The sound effect can set a playful mood and also alerts us of incoming danger. You won’t experience any of this with just some speakers, making a quality headset key to an ideal gaming experience. If you are a gamer that has not decided about having a set of gaming headset, I have written four reasons why gaming headsets are worth it and why you should have a pair.

No Headset vs. Gaming headsets

Let us talk about it, you know very well that when you are playing a game, then you hear talking around you, TV noises coming from another room gets pretty annoying after a while, as hard as you try you will get distracted. The problems of gaming with no headsets are many, for example, you don’t only hear the game sound and your teammates, but you can also hear outside noise, dogs barking, cars going up and down your street. Your sibling may be playing music in the next room, making it difficult for you to hear clearly. 

I’m not saying people can’t or don’t game without them. I’m sure there are some. I know I went through a time when I didn’t have a headset, it wasn’t fun for me because most of the time I couldn’t hear clearly. On the other hand, if you use earphones, the information your teammates relate to you goes right into your eardrum.

Headsets also seem like a good value, they offer different types of functionality, and they also appeal to people that want an excellent solution to their gaming audio that they can plugin and use. Another perk is that some models come with their sound processing card, and they will work even if your sound card doesn’t.

Limits distractions

When I say it limits distractions, I am talking about distracting others or others around you. The headsets give you privacy and the best sound in your eardrum. They benefit everyone like your wife, girlfriend, parents, babies, and roommates. Now you can pull all-nighters without bothering anyone else. Many models offer a noise-canceling feature, most of them use small microphones that listen to the outside noise around you, it then analyzes it and sends a counter-signal that cancels out the noise some even come with ear cups to block out outside noise.

Team communication

Most gaming headsets come with a microphone incorporated in it. What are the benefits of a mic, you might ask? I’m glad you asked. With a mic, you can communicate better with your team being able to relay information with your squad increases your chance of winning and completing more missions.

You can let your teammates know the enemy location, traps in some regions of the game. This information is essential in a team-based game such as Overwatch; with gaming headsets, you will always be in communication with your squad. You want all the advantage you can get being able to communicate; your squad productivity increases clearly.

Improves gaming performance

Gaming headsets offer crisp, superior, and clear sound over traditional speakers, of course. They deliver accurate highs, and deep rich bass, the music that gets delivered to your eardrum is just better. For action games, first-person shooter games, you’ll want to get a gaming headset with surround sound functionality when it comes to game performance. Your auditory and verbal senses can help you and your squad.

When all you can hear is the game sound, and nothing else, your reaction time increases dramatically. Today games require precise and accurate movements with lightning reactions to sound as of footsteps and gunfire; your enemies will never know what hit them — providing continuous feedback and the most important one, staying focus.

Verdict

As we all know a decent set of the gaming headset is essential if you are serious about gaming, whether you are chatting with your buddies online or intently listen for the footsteps of the enemy, you are going to need a good gaming headset. There are many benefits of owning some gaming headsets. They offer a variety of solutions to many gaming problems today.

 

Video game console history – Past Present Future

Most of us grew up thinking game consoles were introduced to the public sometime in the mid-80s’. The first game console I played was the Nintendo Entertainment System. Back then, you could not save the game progress; it was challenging to finish a game. Everything changed when the first Password-backed game went into the market (Castlevania, 1987).

The first generation of PASSWORD-PAK games was a display at the Summer CES trade show by Nintendo in that same year. 

Nowadays, we live in glory with the Xbox generations and PlayStation systems. The game consoles have changed dramatically over the decades. I went and dig on the internet to put together for you guys’ history of video game consoles.

The first console

The prototype video game system was developed in 1967 by Ralph Baer along with some of his colleagues at Sanders Associates, Inc. The idea behind it was too developed fun games, or investors and consumers will not be interested. TV Unit #7 was developed later in that year; it came to be known for its looks as “The Brown Box.” It was the first multiplayer, multi-program video game system. 

It included games like Ping-Pong, Checkers, Four different sport games, target shooting (You can target shooting with a device called Light Gun), and a golf putting game. I was switching between games consisted of flipping the switches along the front of the unit. Program cards showed which switches to activate to set a specific game. It had basic features most game console still have today. “The Brown Box” led the way for video games of today.

The 80s

In the early 80s, the video game industry suffers a large scale crash, known in Japan as “Atari Shock.” Several factors made this happen, a saturation of the market, too many game consoles, games, and the idea of personal computer games. America’s market was the most affected; it saw a drop of 97 percent. 

The industry recovers after a few years. Nintendo was ahead of everyone and released the Nintendo Entertainment System in America as it’s the western brand. Its original price was $199.00, that was a significant amount of money in the mid-’80s. The NES is an 8-bit home video console manufacture by NINTENDO.

“The Mega Drive” is a 16-bit home video console, developed and sold by SEGA. It is an adaptation from the Sega’s system 16 arcade board, the CPU is a Motorola 68000 processor, with Zilog Z80 as a sound controller and a video system that can support, hardware sprites, scrolling, and tiles. A library of 900 games also was an integration within the system.

The 90s’

In the early 90s’ Nintendo developed the Super Nintendo. It was the first release in Japan follows by America in 1991. The Super NES is a 16-bit video console by Nintendo. Becoming the best-selling 16-bit console in North America and Europe despite competition from the Sega’s Genesis console, it remains popular through its 32-bit era until 2003. Units sold 49.1 million.

On the year 1994, the Sega Saturn released. It was an upgrade from its successor, the Sega Genesis, and the Saturn had dual CPU and eight processors. The games were in CD-ROM format with several arcade ports as well as original games. 9.26 million units sold.

Where can I start? This console changed the industry forever. It was September 9, 1995, when Soni Computer Entertainment released in North America the PlayStation, commonly known as the PS1 or code name PSX.

It was the first of the PlayStation line up of video game consoles with the first “Computer Entertainment platform ” that took the industry by storm the first video game console to ship 100 million units.

One year later, Nintendo came out with the Nintendo 64, name for its 64-bit processing central unit. It was launched in Japan, Followed by a North America released in September 1996. It came with two games Super Mario 64 and Pilotwings 64. Units sold 32.93 million.

The 21 st Century

We are now moving into the six-generation consoles and beyond. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the successor of the PS was release. The PS2 released in Japan in October 2000, followed by North America in that same year, what was cool about the new system was the backward comp-ability for its processor’s Dual Shock Controller, as well as games. It came to be the best-selling video game console of all time, with 159 million units sold.

In the early 2001 Nintendo release its Game Cube, which will compete with the PS2 and the Sega Dreamcast. The first console to use an Optical disc. The disc looks like a mini-DVD. It was not designed like the competition and was only focus on gaming. The console also supported online gaming and could connect to your game boy advance. Units sold 21.7 million units. 

Soon after that, the Xbox brand was introduced to the public, the first installment to the Xbox series of game consoles. It was Microsoft who first go to the gaming industry. It released the Xbox on November 15, 2001. What made the Xbox different were the graphics compare to its rivals. It features a 733 MHZ Intel Pentium III processor, one that cannot be on typical Pc’s, and a built-in hard disk drive.

Following that year, Microsoft launch Xbox lives, a fee-based online gaming service that enables users to download content from the internet.

It broke record selling figures with the North America launch, with 1.5 million units sold before the end of 2001. The successor of the PS2 was released November 11, 2006 – Japan and November 17 – North America.

The first console included a Blu-ray disc as its central storage, integrated social gaming services, PlayStation network, first controllable handheld console, remote connectivity through PlayStation portable, and PlayStation Vita. A slimmer version of the PS3 released in 2009, it no longer plays PS2 games. It was lighter and thinner than the original PS3. The popularity was not high due to the high price of the units, which were sold in two versions, $599 for the 60-gigabyte model and $499 for the 20-gigabyte model. 

Xbox 360 is the successor of the Xbox, and it features an online service update that the console gets thru throughout its lifetime. Microsoft made available a free subscription along with a subscription-based variety.

One of them being Xbox Live, which allows you to play online, download games through Xbox live arcade, demo games, music streaming, TV programming, and movies through its music and video portals, you can also connect to your PC.

Gamer around the world called it “the first hub for living room computer entertainment.” Two upgraded models were released by Microsoft the Xbox 360 S and the Xbox 360 E in 2013. By the year 2014, it had sold 84 million units worldwide, making it the highest-selling console of all time — an upgraded version of the Xbox 360 released on November 22, 2013, the Xbox One.

Conclusion

Going thru time and learning about Video Game Consoles can only tell us the future of gaming. The consoles had only gotten better, and VR is knocking on the door. Maybe in the future, we will be able to feel and experience a Virtual reality like we have never seen before. I can only imagine as I remember seeing that movie Player 1; hopefully, gaming companies would come together to brings us a never seen before gaming experience, in the meanwhile enjoy and game away.
