Keyboards used for gaming suffer a lot of wear and tear, which is why keyboards with precision mechanical switches designed to withstand millions of keystrokes started to replace cheaper and less robust versions several years ago. The K95 RGB Platinum keyboard from Corsair is built to last for years, with Cherry MX Brown mechanical key switches and an aluminum frame. It also lets you program six different key sequences, has media playback keys and a USB port, and each key can be programmed to have any backlit color you want.
The face of Alan from the SeriousGaming Twitch channel, shown with eyes crossed and tongue lolling out, is used to indicate that someone has done something eye-rollingly stupid. Sometimes it’ll refer to a player who’s using a deck or character that’s considered trivially easy to play (there was a Hearthstone deck jokingly called “brokeback druid, for example), but it can also come out when someone says something idiotic on stream. The equivalent slang term on the non-Twitch internet is probably “derp.”
We think the following is gear gamers should upgrade if they’re able. Again, you can either do so systematically as you gather some cash, grab a few at once, or setup an entire new rig — it’s all on you! Or perhaps even start building your own gaming computer if you want to save some money as well. If there are some different recommendations or even gear you feel we left out, let us know in the comments. Just as a heads up, click on the links below of the gear to jump to that specific section’s recommendation. We’ll also link you to some of our guides in case you want some more information or additional gear picks to compare and contrast.

It's taken decades for technology to catch up with the early promise of virtual reality, but VR gaming has finally arrived. The original Oculus Rift virtual reality headset was a breakthrough when it debuted commercially in 2012, and their latest version is still one of the best VR headsets available. Dedicated VR headsets like the Oculus are more expensive than ones that convert your mobile phone into a VR device, but they typically offer a better gaming experience and fewer lags. The Oculus Rift headset also has integrated headphones, and comes in a package with two hand controllers that let you interact with your virtual worlds.

Captoglove started out as a device to help rehabilitate stroke victims, but it has now become a wearable interface for VR games and other applications. The Captoglove interface allows hand and finger gestures to be translated into actions in virtual reality — but a Captoglove can also be used for other tasks, like controlling a smart TV or even flying aerial drones. The gloves wirelessly connect to other devices using Bluetooth, and are made from the same durable, washable fabric used in sports equipment. Right hand and left hand versions are available, or they can also function as a pair.
