Throughout 2020 we will be introducing you to an array of new releases but Instead of reviews, we have opted to do something a little different. Each month we will be taking a closer look at the system requirements of the respective game and introducing you to suitable systems and hardware. This month we look at Doom Eternal.
Built for the afterdark gamer, the Cougar Vantar strikes with stealth while proving to be a visual showpiece.
Taking advantage of low-profile scissor-switch keycaps, Cougar's Vantar has been designed to give gamers a responsive, tactile-feedback response for those of the nocturnal background. Silent in function yet stunning in form, Cougar implements anti-ghosting technology over a set number of keys – allowing for simultaneous button presses for impressive accuracy and supreme performance.
Built with dedicated media keys for control over audio and video files, as well as internet services, the Cougar Vantar does well to serve two purposes, realising that gamers do more than just game. Featuring an 8-colour, 8-effect customizable backlighting effect, gamers can set their own choices for visual behaviour across the entire set of keys and the Cougar logo – including a rainbow, wave, breathing, rhythm and others, with a distinctive plate surrounding the keyboard also taking advantage of the visual effect.
Gearing up for the festive season of sparkly trees, ribbon tied presents and mince pie cravings, Overclockers UK will be delivering a wide range of deals and gifts so that the gamers, fans and enthusiasts can provide themselves and their loved ones with the best gifts possible.
Those looking for upgrades, full system overhauls or the comfy padding of premier gaming chairs will find their needs fulfilled. With a reindeer on the roof for next day delivery, those in the market for a pre-built gaming machine will find the greatest benefit from the OcUK Express range of systems. If your after for entry-level streaming PCs such as the FS-E1, or console stomping monsters such as the FS-H2, all systems within this range of PCs are ensured for next day delivery when ordered before 2PM, with three year warranty of dedicated support.

Focusing on ergonomics and personal preference, Vertagear is set to release two new models of gaming chairs – the TRIIGGER 275 and the TRIIGGER 350.
Providing substantial comfort with the aesthetic inspiration of F1 race cars, Vertagear's TRIIGGER Series take advantage of calfskin leather, adjustable lumbar support and flexible cushioning. Differing from the model 275, the model 350 allows for seat-depth adjustments, positioning armrests, strengthened casters and automotive grade paint within its distinctive frame.
Both models offer 22 different seated positions, height adjustments and class 12.9 screws for increased durability. All adjustments made to positioning are designed in a way that's simplistic for the user, made simple by a paddle shift “Trigger” located under the armrests. Proving to be balanced and reliable through the steel alloy dual spring hubs, build quality remains at the top of the list, ensuring users feels safe and comfortable when using the chairs.
Eradictaing the need for software functionaility and on-screen adjustments of player preferences, Cougar's Minos X3 gaming mouse places an emphasis on direct-user control, meaning all changes are made on-the-fly. Featuring a DPI rating of 400 to 3200 through a first-class PMW3310DH optical sensor, the excellent precision and scale of accuracy that the Minos X3 seems set to deliver means the need for hardware acceleration will cease to be relevant. As an eSports-centric gaming mouse, both the aesthetic and functional design have been combined in a manner that allows gamers of MOBA, RTS and FPS to adapt to its ergonomics and play in style.
Suited for gamers of all grip preferences, those of the claw grip, fingertip, and taper design nature will find the mouse to be both comfortable and adaptable – allowing them to compete at their best, remaining in full control. Along with Omron gaming swithces and user-defined LED backlighting, Cougar's focus on keeping gamers in the game and away from software UI means all of the Minos X3's features are placed at the base of the mouse for instant access.
PC gaming is booming thanks to new players, incredible games and innovative technology, and that means there are plenty of options when it comes to your next desktop.
That’s easier said than done. If you’re a beginner, then poring over pages of components can be daunting – and it’s still tricky at times for experienced users. That’s no surprise, given that the market is stuffed with thousands of components that can be assembled in millions of ways.
For us, of course, there’s only one choice – and that’s buying a PC from Overclockers UK.

"For years, we’ve been dedicated to providing competitive gaming events for local gamers in our stores. Now, with this first of its kind space, we can take this to the next level - allowing us to deliver a regular programme of bespoke local esports competitions and social gaming events across a wide range of esports and other gaming titles, including Hearthstone, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Minecraft."
Craig Fletcher, Founder and CEO at Multiplay said: "The new space supports the Group’s ambition to become a leading provider of esports in the UK, and we’re excited to announce this first step in a wider strategy to add value to the retail experience at GAME."
"Overclockers UK, a leader in specialist PC hardware, has been a long-time partner of Multiplay. Together we’re aiming to create the most welcoming and social esports zone around."
Phil Whitnall, GAME Trafford Store Manager said: "Manchester has a strong community of gamers so this is a great place to open our first permanent esports and competitive gaming zone. “There’s nothing like it in the area so we’re excited to become the esports destination for gamers."
