Corsair Nightsword RGB gaming mouse review

When you're shopping for a gaming mouse online, it's hard to predict what'll feel good in person, but let me tell you that the Corsair Nightsword RGB is one of the most comfortable gaming mice I've tested. For $79, you can get its comfortable chassis along with its smooth performance and fine-tunable weight. However, the mouse isn't perfect, as its buttons are stiff, the scroll wheel is out of a comfortable reach and Corsair’s software is hard to navigate, which keeps the Nightsword from being one of the best gaming mice. But overall, Corsair Nightsword RGB is a solid wired gaming mouse, especially for those looking for something a little on the thick side. The Corsair Nightsword RGB sports a thick black shell that's dazzled with four-zone honeycomb RGB lighting. At 5.1 x 3.4 x 1.7 inches and 4.2 ounces, the Corsair Nightsword RGB is pretty big, but it felt great in the palm of my hands.

Shark knows how to get things done, how to tear into the flesh of a project, taking only what's good. Ink, on the other hand, knows how to inject colour into the veins of that same flesh.

Watch out Warzone and Fortnite: Ubisoft is coming after free-to-play

Article | March 4, 2020

Ubisoft announced last week that it is adding specific focus on free-to-play, alongside its AAA catalogue. In doing so, it is following a route that has been very successful for Activision with its Warzone strategy. Free-to-play games which draw audiences via big franchise names and monetise via in-game spending are going to be increasingly common among AAA publishers. The focus on in-game spending and particularly on the cosmetic, rather than the progress-related, parts will be the key revenue component. As games become less finite and more perpetual (consumer goal is less about ‘finishing them’ and more and ‘playing/spending time in them’), the opportunity to monetise needs that stem from this perpetual engagement (e.g. socialising or expression) starts to outweigh the mere monetisation of access to a packaged product. Simultaneously, free-to-play games also act as a powerful marketing driver for AAA releases as they come out, as well as streamability and word of mouth for the franchise.
