Gaming Headsets With Microphone


Hello everyone! Welcome back to my Computers and Electronics blog. From time to time I'd like to enjoy myself and play computer games. One of my favourite kind are shooters and survival games like Halo.
The best part is actually the multiplayer game mode, where you can meet players from all over the world. To chat and coordinate your team, over the past few years, voice chat has become more and more popular. But sometimes you have some sensitive room or house mates or, even worse, picky neighbours. The perfect way to enjoy your games, even during odd hours, are gaming headsets. And with the built-in microphone, voice chat has never been easier. Read more

Modding Games

18/04/2017 Main

What’s up everyone, how are you all doing today? Welcome back to another post on my computers and electronics blog. On this beautiful spring day I found myself sitting inside playing video games, trying to mod out my Fallout 4 experience as much as possible. Modding has always been a  big thing in video game culture, many top games today like Team Fortress 2 and Counter Strike actually started their lives as community made mods. Other games have added in entire modes or story chapters thanks to the community working tirelessly to create something that we can all enjoy. Here are some of the greatest mods that ended up officially in the game. Read more

Sony Handheld Gaming Consoles

Hey readers new and old, welcome to my computer and electronics blog. I have been adding to my video game console collection lately with the latest additions all being handheld consoles. As I mentioned in my gameboy post, I almost have all the gameboys excluding a couple early ones, so I have decided to look at the main competitor for gameboy, the Playstation Portable or PSP. I decided to take a look at my favourite website with used video games and consoles for sale (http://www.for-sale.ie/) and found almost every actual PSP released, and all of them were for pretty low prices. Here are my the Playstation Portables that have been added to my collection and where to find them for yourself. Read more

The Red Ring Of Death

Hey everyone, welcome back to my computers and electronics blog. I was just playing some of my older video games (namely Halo Reach on the Xbox 360) and I finally got it, the dreaded Red Ring of Death. Any Xbox 360 gamer knows what I am talking about. You boot the console up and get this weird error message and then see something that isn’t supposed to happen. Three of the four ring used it indicate player order on the console start flashing, and they are not green. A bright red light emanates from the ring and it’s all over. Read more

Things to do With a Raspberry Pi

Different Graphics Cards

Different Graphics Cards

    Welcome everyone, I hope you are all well. I had an idea for another post on my computers blog today while talking with a coworker, and here it is. Who actually knows what a video card is and what it does? Not many of you I assume. That is why I thought( being the nice, considerate man I am) that I should have a little conversation with you guys about graphics cards so you don’t humiliate yourselves like Trent did today. A graphics card, or video card as some refer to it as is an expansion card for your motherboard that feeds visual inputs into a display like a television or monitor. If you are using a graphics card that was installed that means its dedicated graphics,as opposed to a graphics card that is onboard and is therefore referred to as on board memory. This is not very ideal if you want to do any high graphically demanding activities. Read more

Solid States Drives

Solid States Drives are a Solid Choice

Hey there everybody hope all is well and welcome back to another post on my computers and home electronics blog. I recently found a cheap 120GB Solid State Drive used online that was barely used and since then I have installed my operating system as well as 5 games onto it, and I will be adding more as I find more to add. This has made my boot time remarkably faster and all the games installed run so much more smoothly than they did in the past. The graphics are still not the best as I need to upgrade my graphics card but that will hopefully happen next month. For now I want to just focus on my Solid State Drive, which is really a piece of technological genius. Read more

Some New Apps 

Hello folks. How are we all? Thanks for coming back for another instalment of my computer and consumer electronics blog. I hope you have been enjoying it so far. The feedback has certainly been positive and has inspired me to sit down and tap out my thoughts on the computer anytime I find myself with a few spare minutes. Thanks for spurring me on folks! And just so you know, I have a total open door policy in terms of guest blogging. So if you have a topic or subject that you would like to share with your fellow readership then don’t hesitate to drop me a line with a brief synopsis and we can chat further. But let’s not digress too much. I want to get on to my post topic of today which is simply a bit of a shout out to a couple of great apps on iOS I have discovered recently for my iPad. Firstly I came across the Astropad Graphics Tablet app which allows me turn my iPad into a Wacom style graphics tablet for my iMac. Awesome idea! You just need to invest in a suitable stylus. I also came across Practice+ which a utility app for musicians providing a variety of tools that help make a practise session more efficient. Perfect for a newbie guitar player like myself. Both apps are free to download and try out with in-app purchases unlocking the more advanced features should you want to make use of their full potential. You should check them both out.  Read more
