What’s the best gaming gear upgrade without a sturdy backbone to handle it all? Cue your PC, and since gaming computers are consistently evolving while at the same time games are increasing in the demand for RAM, processing as well as video card capabilities, you need to make sure your rig can support it all, otherwise these smaller gear upgrades are basically moot. Here’s one of our favorite gaming computers out there at the moment. These PC’s are super quiet, 4K and VR ready, overclockable, and are built like tanks. Now before we list the exact specifications, do know that there are quite a few combinations and versions they offer in order meet the demands of certain price-points, which we love so all readers can fine-tune their cash flow into which Corsair One is best for them.

SourPls is another older emote that was taken from a YouTube video and made into a BTTV emote in 2014. The emote’s name, based on the YouTube user who uploaded it, stars SourNotHardcore (a staff member at Twitch) dancing in a store. He’s got a goofy grin on his face. The emote has since gone through many variations with one of the most popular being ForsenPls. The emote went through its own period of troubles (the fact that it was animated caused problems for BTTV), but has since emerged as one of the most popular-to-date.
Since Twitch didn’t want to touch the emote because of legal concerns, according to Bain, he uploaded the photo to BTTV. BTTV, otherwise known as BetterTTV, is a third-party browser extension that allows people to use emotes in chat. Since these aren’t run through Twitch directly, the emotes often circumvent rules. This meant LUL could exist as an emote — a very, very popular emote — on Twitch despite the DMCA takedown. It only grew from there.

Once you’ve gotten your hands on your new gaming system you’ll probably want some accessories to go with it. Extra controllers will be a necessity for multiplayer games and you’re going to want a headset for online gaming. Some excellent models from manufacturers like HyperX, Corsair and Razer will be discounted, as well as DualShock and Xbox wireless controllers.
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.”

Aside from Prime Day, Black Friday weekend is the best time of the year to score big-ticket electronics at deep discounts — and if you’re a gamer who loves deals as much as you love gaming, then Black Friday can be like Christmas-come-early for you. Razer is one of the biggest names in the world of electronics and gaming peripherals, and through Cyber Monday (November 26), a huge lineup of Razer stuff is on sale, from headsets and keyboards to laptops and mobile devices.

Xbox and PC gamers can get the full feel of car racing with this force-feedback wheel, gearshift and pedal set from Logitech. (PlayStation 4 racers can check out the very similar Logitech G29 wheel.) The game navigation buttons are better integrated into the steering wheel, compared to Logitech’s older versions, while the black anodized metal centerpiece and the real leather steering wheel cover give it a sleek and refined racing look.
“Memes in general are about cultural literacy,” Caldwell said. “How can you show your membership to certain subculture? This is exactly what’s going on with Twitch emotes, and some of these are really hard to grasp. Being able to have a firm grasp of how these emotes work is important in order to participate. I think we’re going to see more and more emotes, and more and more variations of the same emotes.”
Gaming accessories can not only enhance your play, but can also help you store or record games. External hard drives let you expand the storage space of your gaming consoles or gaming PC. These devices are useful, as many newer games take up substantial hard drive space. Game capture devices let you record your play so you can upload it to the Internet and share with friends and social media followers. Whether you are relatively new to video games or are an experienced gamer, gaming accessories can greatly increase your enjoyment.
Kappa is a grayscale photo of Josh DeSeno, a former Justin.tv employee. DeSeno had been working on the original chat client for Justin.tv when Kappa was added as an emote. This was not uncommon at the time as several Justin.tv employees had added various photos of their facial expressions—but DeSeno’s photo was much more popular than his peers’. He became the face of Twitch.
The Razer Kraken is an icon in the world of gaming headsets and remains one of the best pairs for the money thanks to its comfortable oversized ear cups, aluminum frame, beefy 50mm drivers, retractable microphone, and compatibility across all gaming systems. The upgrade pick, the Kraken Chroma 7.1 V2, even boasts virtual surround sound, and it’s now on sale at the same price as the standard Kraken Pro V2.
While you might not be as good as the pros, that doesn’t mean you can’t use the exact same tools they do to up your own game. We’ve looked at the esports competitive gaming gear used by the top players in some of the biggest games and collected the best of the best among controllers, mice, keyboards, headsets and more. This is what it takes to play like a pro.
There are tiers of emotes, and the more subscribers a channel has, the more emotes it can have. The lowest tier (0 subscribers) can have two emotes, which though partnered streamers should have more in no time. Meanwhile, highest listed on Twitch’s site (7,000 subscribers) can have up to 50 emotes. So depending on how popular the streamer in question is, you might get a very large amount of emotes for a relatively small price.
Emotes have their ups and downs. Some, like Kappa, are used to help people communicate with one another during incredible streaming moments while the chat moves at breakneck speeds. Other people may start using an innocuous emote designed around a popular streamer for insulting or harmful reasons. Being part of Twitch culture means tuning into emotes as they emerge and evolve. That’s easier said than done.

FFZ has a number of other features that make it an essential extension for Twitch users. It’s available for download from the Frankerface website, and it’s available for every kind of browser available, from Chrome and Firefox to the little-known Pale Moon browser. It’s worth considering not just for the emotes, but for the special features it adds to the Twitch experience.
Kreygasm, an icon of the streamer Kreyg with his mouth open—apparently either shouting in excitement or having an orgasm—indicates great excitement. Basically, you can use it anywhere you would use “Whoa!” or “Holy shit!” Kreygasm is so popular that it’s spawned a whole subgenre of emotes, and several popular streamers have created custom icons of their own “gasm” faces.
To kick off our list for the best gaming gear, we have arguably one of the most important parts of not only hearing your opponents and teammates but communication, which can quite possibly make or break your win or loss column. The HyperX Cloud has received thousands of user reviews around the net to back up its reputation. Designed for pro gamers as it is specifically used by professional gaming organizations, It’s super comfortable with some nice and light weight leather memory foam ear cups. You’re also getting an extra set of velour ear cups in case you’d like to switch them out or you’ve already warn the previous out. The overall design is ‘over-ear’, which means they’ll be engulfing your entire ears to isolate sound and disallow from other ambient noise from the outside world in so it doesn’t cloud your experience. In terms of additional specs, it is equipped with 15-25k Hz frequency responses as well as 53 mm drivers, giving this headset superior audio performance, not to mention its enhanced comfort on top of it all.
