Last December, I became the proud owner of a brand new Playstation 4. One of my friends asked me why I would get a PS4 instead of waiting for the PS5 which, if reports are accurate, is due next year. I figured I’d share the reasons why I’d still get a PS4 with you all:

Monster Hunter World

Game Rant

When Monster Hunter first came out on the PS2, I was hooked. I followed the series throughout its handheld releases and when I found out it was coming out for the PS4, I knew I had to get my hands on the console. I got the PS4, and I got the game. What didn’t I get? Regrets. It’s an amazing game all around, with lots of promised support from Capcom. It packs solid content without requiring DLCs.

Kingdom Hearts 3

While the game isn’t out yet, I’ve been waiting for this for a looooong time. Another game franchise I’ve been following since its debut on the PS2, this is a game franchise that has constantly been highly entertaining. Definitely worth getting a PS4 for!

God of War

While I wasn’t a fan of the original series due to my massive hatred of quicktime events, the newest entry to the God of War series brought the game out of the quicktime event style of gaming into a more free-flowing game style. Sure there are still some quicktime events, but it doesn’t feel like the bulk of the gameplay anymore.

Horizon Zero Dawn

Daily Star

A Playstation 4 exclusive, HZD is an incredible game, featuring a vibrant open-world environment, a deep story, and awesome robot dinosaur fighting action. While it does have a DLC, the DLC expands the story with a new chapter rather than being the type that forces you to buy it just so you know what’s going on. Lookin’ at you Final Fantasy XV

Ever since handheld gaming consoles hit the market, gamers of all ages realized that this meant that gaming which was once restricted to sitting at the desk, on the couch, or on the floor could now be done in the most comfortable of places: in bed. Gaming in bed, while super comfy, can be hazardous to your health. Here’s why:

Face-ing consequences

For handheld devices like the Nintendo Switch, the 3DS, or even a cellphone or tablet, the most comfortable position to game in is usually lying back in bed holding the device over your face as you play. Given how relaxing this is, there’s a large chance of the unit slipping and hitting you in the face. It sounds silly, but based on experience, it happens more often than you think!

Hotbed of danger

Despite the desktop PC being the best option for PC gaming, there’s still a large market for gaming laptops. Some people still prefer the option to bring their PC gaming with them wherever they go, whether it’s the dining room, bathroom, or into bed.

The hazard here comes from how hot laptops, gaming laptops in particular can get really hot without proper ventilation. While probably not hot enough to set your sheets on fire, planting the laptop on your lap can lead to burns.

I don’t think that’s covered

If you’re like me, chances are your bed isn’t the picture of neatness, with scattered pillows and occasionally, rumpled sheets not tucked away properly. This means that devices left on the bed can get lost under the covers. While that’s not bad in itself, how often have you flipped the covers looking for your device, accidentally sending it flying? Or even worse, plopped into bed only to hear the distinct crack of your device breaking?

In conclusion, gaming in bed isn’t necessarily dangerous if one is mindful and puts away the devices properly. But getting too comfortable can be dangerous! Best leave the gaming sessions to their designated areas. Have you had any in-bed gaming accidents?

All gamers will have a rig of some sort, whether it’s for consoles or for PC. What sets a serious gamer apart from a filthy casual are the accessories that the serious gamers are willing to invest in. Given that most console peripherals are more for comfort or style, we’ll be focusing on the system where accessories are for boosting your skills to the next level: PC gaming! Here are our favorites:

Razer Naga Trinity

Razer

For PC gamers, the mouse is one of the most important accessories as at least half of the games actions are reliant on your mouse: aiming and shooting for FPS games, and movement and targeting for MOBA and MMORPGs. The Razer Naga Trinity ensures that you get the most out of your mouse. With a highly accurate movement sensor and replaceable side-buttons, this mouse is sure to help you bring your A-game.

Corsair K55 RGB Keyboard

One of the best gaming keyboards on the market, the Corsair K55 offers a lot of the same features that the higher-priced gaming keyboards offer, but at a much friendlier price. While the Razer gaming keyboards are pretty solid (and the programmable lights are cool), the Corsair provides the same tactile, programmable keys you’d get with a Razr, it does so without the same high price tag.

HyperX KHX-H3CL Headset

While there are a lot of gaming headsets out there that provide a combination of good sound quality and noise cancellation. One common problem they all have, however, is how heavy they can be. Given that a good gaming session will last at least an hour, a heavy headset can be a literal pain in the neck. The HyperX, however, provides great quality while being lightweight and budget friendly!
