ModMic 4 and 5 Discord Certified!

ModMic 4 and 5 Discord Certified!

We're super proud to announce that the ModMic 4 and the ModMic 5 are now Discord Certified! But what does that mean!? Why does it matter? Is it just some marketing stunt? We had several people message us on twitter with the question of the integrity of such an announcement. Well, Discord goes over what goes into testing in great detail here: https://blog.discordapp.com/wth-is-discord-certification-fa024f7e7b72#.4mz74putt  However, we want to touch on two key points: 1) There's no compensation on either side for this. It is not a license, it is not an advertisement, it is not a back door under the table grease the...

Pro Tips, Part 2

Pro Tips, Part 2

With the Modmic 5 recently being released, we thought it was time for another Pro-Tips article!  Omni vs Uni when to flip that switch It is pretty awesome that the ModMic 5 has both Unidirectional and Omnidirectional microphone capsules and that you can switch between the two with a flip of a switch, but what does that really mean?

Double Dragon 4 Review

Last week we took a look at all the awesome retro games coming out in 2017, so I figured I should grab one and give you all the first review of the new year!

Upon installing and starting up the game I was met with retro glory, as the 8 bit half Japanese, half English main menu lit up my monitor and the amazing throwback beats...

A Very Retro 2017

A Very Retro 2017

While I was looking at the list of games slated for release in 2017, I felt as though I was having a flashback to my childhood in the 90s. That isn’t to say there are no major block busters coming out this year, but even a few of those feel like throwbacks.
