Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Product of the Day: NZXT Avatar Optical Gaming Mouse

Posted on Wednesday, January 28 @ 16:35:33 Eastern by Nick_Swanson
As I drove into work today, crossing the moat and calling ahead to security to raise our enormous iron gates that stand guard over the illustrious Game Revolution complex, I thought to myself, “Wouldn't it be nice if I got to review NZXT's new Avatar gaming mouse today?” This thought, reinforced by the Avatar's adjustable 650 to 2600 DPI and 7 programmable buttons, carried me along through the double oak doors of GR's exterior and into the exquisitely decorated foyer. Proceeding ahead to the freight elevator, my mind was consumed with the mouse's sleek exterior and sweat-resistant rubber grip. As I stepped into the elevator, pressing the dungeon level button, I hoped against hope that a beautifully packaged mouse would be waiting for my arrival on my desk. (Okay, not really, but let’s run with it.)

Luck would have it that today my dreams would become reality. Sitting atop my dimly lit desk was the mouse I had been waiting for and I quickly grabbed it in my hands. Upon tearing the packaging apart and placing my hand atop its well-crafted exterior, it was clear that the mouse was built for comfort. I've previously owned a Razor gaming mouse, and both have a similar look and feel to them. But unlike the Razor, I found the Avatar to have a better placement of programmable buttons, and an all-around slightly better feel to it. The Avatar also holds its own in the aesthetics department, with two glowing blue bands on either side to accentuate the sleekness of the design. I admired the mouse for another minute or two in the dim light of the dungeon, before deciding to see how it actually preformed playing games.

Thankfully, the Avatar keeps up in this department too. As I tested it out on a variety of different games, I could really appreciate the upgrade from the four- or five-year old Logitech mouse I had been using previously. As NZXT's first mouse product, the Avatar is a huge success. I'm left with very little to complain about, other than the fact that one of the glowing blue lights died while using it. At a price tag of $60, it might be slightly overpriced, but if you've got the cash and need a new mouse, I would suggest checking it out. I tried sneaking out with the Avatar mouse in my pocket, but unfortunately, GR's top-notch security system sent robots after me that got me drunk and took the mouse back. All in all, a pretty standard day at Game Revolution.
