Valve has introduced paid mods to the Steam Workshop, allowing potential creators to benefit and earn money from their creations. At least that is the intention, instead the platform will only allow uploaders to take 25-percent of the total sale price; a massive difference from the 85-percent earnings creators can get from selling cosmetic items on Dota 2 (which incidentally is also owned by Valve).

Mortal Kombat X has arrived on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox; bringing the latest installment of unnecessarily gruesome violence to a new generation of gamers.

Corsair recently rebranded their gaming division, bringing along a new logo and a more straightforward name – Corsair Gaming. The Corsair Gaming Sabre Laser RGB Gaming Mouse is one of the new products spawned under the redesigned Corsair Gaming division.
It is a gaming mouse with an 8,200 dpi laser sensor, Omron switches, 8-programmable buttons, sold for RM269 inclusive of GST. Is it a gaming mouse that is worth the bang for buck, or is it just another overpriced gaming product?
