Most of them are pretty much just high-end office chairs with a slick color scheme. Really the only point in having it is for aesthetic purposes - i.e. matching a well put-together gaming setup. Other than that, they're just pricey office chairs. Although this one in particular isn't priced bad.
Yeah, had the same issue myself. I prefer regular ol' fabric. Even real leather is a tad much if you live in a hot/humid region.
Painfully boring game. It's much like the Simpsons and Family Guy mobile games. Click and collect. I love the series - really wish they'd bring it back rather than do stupid stuff like this.
The "I want to copy a famous streamer/youtuber" chairs.
@Gh05t - True. N4G is a hub of wasted content, though, honestly. These guys put more effort into this article than 80% of the sites on here that literally throw up 100-250 words of regurgitated "news" and get frontpage for it.
Yeah, I think it's probably really difficult to compare brands like this. They have too many options. I've heard nothing but mixed opinions of both. Obviously a lot of people are put off by the price and say its definitely not worth the money. Others say they're awesome. It would be nice to get a true comparison that isn't just generalizations.
Vector is a beast out of the gate. Good through a whole match, but definitely a monster in the beginning stages.
Not a bad looking chair. And a fraction of the cost of these other brands.
PlayerUnknown is simply the online alias of the guy that originally created the PUBG mod. His actual name is Brendan Greene.
"Streamers". Where I come from these chicks would be called camgirls.
The X Rocker ones are mostly geared toward kids/teens - yup. DXracer makes a slick chair, though. As does Arozzi and a couple others. Not all of them are ridiculously priced, either. DXracer definitely costs a pretty penny, but other brands you can get a decent chair for under $100. You have to keep in mind, too, that not everyone wants a boring, dull, office chair to compliment a proper gaming setup. Gotta have some flair, mayne.
Isn't it? I was surprised at how good it is considering it's nearly 1/2 the cost of ones like the Yeti. It's awesome, though.
They do make a great mic. I've used the Yeti and the Snowball. Both are fantastic for the price. I will say, though, that the Samson meteor is incredible, too. And it's cheaper than the Yeti.
Nope. Hopefully they don't completely ruin it. The details that have been put out about it so far aren't encouraging, though.
Yeah, a bit surprising that they didn't stick to that with this. I'm guessing they felt turn-based combat was too "old-school" for modern players. Hopefully it won't completely ruin the game with it being a different combat style.
True. But a $10 headset doesn't typically last long. Nor is it the greatest of quality. I do agree, however, that a HDD upgrade is a must for most gamers.
You could, but that wouldn't help you chat with your teammates, now would it? ;)
From everything I've heard... the Gold headset is more reliable than the Platinum. I also just can't justify the price difference. The Gold is a pretty good deal for what you're getting. I love the Gold headset.
I'll give it a shot - but it probably still won't convince me to throw money at it in the end.
They're decent chairs. I wouldn't say the best, but they're alright. You're definitely paying more for the name than anything, though. They're big because of streamers and YouTubers. They've done a good job getting their name out there.
