Modmic 5 Hardware Review

 

ast year, we took a look at Antlion Audio's Modmic 4, a super slick add-on that turns any existing pair of headphones that someone may have (and love) into a fantastic sounding gaming headset. The concept is super simple; You might have a great set of headphones that offer unparallelled sound clarity and you want that same output paired with an awesome mic for gaming.

A lot of gaming headsets have decent mics, but suffer in the sound department, especially for under $200.00... something that sounds implausible but happens more often that you'd think. That's where the Modmic comes in; simply stick the Modmic to your headphones with the included magnetic bracket and cord management clasps and you're good to go! We were impressed with the Modmic 4 given its low price-point and came away very satisfied with its sound quality, ease of use and flexibility.

QCF: The Walking Dead Season 3: A New Frontier

f there’s one thing that Telltale has proven as a game developer in recent years it’s that they can offer an experience that’s close to the chest for any given property and its respective fandom. Among all of the licenses they’ve tackled however, there’s one particular adaption that truly represents the pedigree of the studio more than any of the other games they’ve helmed, and that’s the Walking Dead.

The third season picks up years from where we left off from the last time we saw Clementine, and while returning players are presumably breathing a collective sigh of relief to see her face grace the screen once more, Season Three’s “A New Frontier” isn’t centered on the steadfast teenager’s struggles in the post-apocalyptic world—we have a new player on the field.

More importantly, the first two episodes are quick to build upon a theme that effectively instills a growing sense of tension in each and every turning point crossed; legacies are bullshit, and nothing is sacred to those who want to survive.

QCF: Final Fantasy XV

he passage of time can sure be weird; it only seems like yesterday that we were talking about the Final Fantasy Versus XIII on the first episode of Press Pause Radio, an episode that was first recorded in 2009, where we talked about a game that was initially revealed at E3 in the year 2006…

Let’s think about that for a minute. We currently live in a generation where we’re treated to annual releases of upcoming titles, and triple AAA games that don’t take any more than three years at most for production. Yet here we are, the long-sought appearance of Final Fantasy XII Versus is here, only as Final Fantasy XV, an upgrade from spin-off to a main entry to the series.

Now this is the part where I tell you whether or not I think it was worth the wait, and well, to sum it up in a manner of words, yes—it was truly worth each and every year of the wait in a surprising turn of events.
