It's been a while since I reviewed an LG smartphone and the new LG V40 ThinQ is a good one to break that dry streak. This phone features 5 built-in cameras if you can believe that! Why does anyone need 5 cameras on their phone? Stay tuned for my review coming soon. Please follow The Gadgeteer or subscribe to our newsletter so you won't miss my review. (11/21)

Specifically designed to meet the needs of gamers, the Chroma V2 comes with 5 additional dedicated macro keys for easy-access as well as an advanced Chroma configurator adding for special effects as it lights up at the press of your keys — you can choose the RGB patterns or individual keys to light up (this may come in handy if you program it alongside your hot keys for a particular game). All in all, if you are looking for a state of the art mechanical keyboard (we do not recommend anything that isn’t mechanical, especially gaming) that provides all of the necessary functions, as well as contains a refreshingly cool look, the Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 just might be for you.
Most video game consoles come with one controller to get you started. When you want to invite friends over to play multiplayer games, you will need extra controllers.

4head is pretty self-explanatory when it comes to visuals. It’s an emote based on a photo of League of Legends’ streamer Cadburry’s widely grinning face. The emote started to pick up in 2015. It’s a pretty wholesome meme, that is mostly used to express a reaction to a joke being made. The reaction can either be seen as an earnest response or sarcastic.
But just when you thought you’d learned emoji, now you’ve got a whole new symbolic meme language to master. On Twitch.tv, the internet’s primary hub for video game streaming and esports videos, there’s a parallel set of icons and a very specific vocabulary that goes with them. If you’re new to Twitch, you probably have no idea what a “PogChamp” or a “Kappa” are, or whose faces represent them, but they’re such an ingrained part of the culture. that popular broadcasters often say them out loud while livestreaming. And even though Twitter doesn’t support Twitch emotes, people steeped in the culture will spell them out in tweets, too.
Many flying and space games are compatible with a mouse and keyboard, but a flight stick — an advanced type of joystick — tends to offer more control. This flight stick from Thrustmaster lets you experience flying with a stick without breaking the bank. The device features magnetic sensors to enhance accuracy and reduce wear, and the buttons on the base and on the stick itself can be programmed for each game. If you want to spend a little more, it’s also available in a package with a separate throttle unit and rudder pedals for $149.99.
After months of conjecture based on a handful of details, Nintendo finally announced their full intentions with their upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service, launching in September of this year.

Best Buy has an assortment of digital games, so you can play the moment a game is officially released. In addition to the digital game selection, Best Buy sells a variety of the best PC games in physical, boxed format. If you'll be playing a game that requires a monthly subscription or in-game currency, you might want to purchase a game card to conveniently renew a subscription or get more in-game currency.
This is a chair that is specifically designed for those who work day-to-day with technology as the Gesture comes with ergonomic 8-hour support (we know, game sessions go longer than that!). The chair is quick to make adjustments and molds to the user, no matter the body type. People have various preferences in the way that they sit, but what makes the Gestures so great is the type of person you are isn’t really relative as it comes with great versatility. If you sit for long hours a day whether playing online games or for work, the Steelcase Gesture comes in as premium and high-end. In our opinion however, it is worth the price if you want to be free of that well-being, long-term posture and physical health guilt.
Keyboards aren't the only devices that feature mechanical switches with a satisfying "click" sound — you'll also find them on the SteelSeries Rival 600 mouse, which also has the full-spectrum RGB lighting that seems almost standard now in every piece of dedicated gaming gear. Although modestly priced at under $50, this gaming mouse features a 12,000 DPI optical sensor for pinpoint accuracy, customizable weights, and even a depth sensor that eliminates “cursor drift” if you lift the mouse off the mouse pad.
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.
Another headset recommendation here, the Sennheiser GAME ONE is presented to us next as an open-back light weighted design that is not only built for enhanced comfort but also provides a crystal-clear sound. Featuring a suitable volume control conveniently located near the headsets ear cups as well as plush velour covered XXL ear pads, these combine to make this one another addition to the best gear for gaming list for those with a bit of larger budgets than our previous headset pick.
