I love games; horrors and puzzle/strategy are my favourite genres but I enjoy playing pretty much anything. I still believe a good story is important and shouldn't play second fiddle to the multiplayer experience unless via a co-op campaign. I also enjoy watching football, supporting the mighty Liverpool, as well as drinking tea and petting my kittens.

It’s the sandwich filling between two slices of Gaming News roundups. Yes, our Technology News roundup is here so let’s check out what’s been going on…

SOUND FORGE gets a big update

Do you need to record, edit, enhance, and deliver high-resolution audio? Do you require a tool to digitize, repair, and restore LP records and tapes, create podcasts, master audio, burn CDs, and render to all the popular audio formats for streaming on the web or playback on portable media players?

Well MAGIX has you covered with their latest update to SOUND FORGE Audio Studio. The latest update of the software, Version 12, takes the software to a whole new level packing it with all sorts of features. Some of the additions to freshen the software up include new 64-Bit architecture, new wave editing techniques and as an added bonus, Ozone Elements from iZotope which equate to the value of £97. For full details on the new features, click HERE.

If you want to buy it for yourself, you can get a copy HERE for just £49.99, or if you have an earlier version of the software, you can upgrade for just £24.99. Not bad right?

Sandberg complete headset collection

A year ago Sandberg started off with just the one gaming headset. Fast-forward 365 days and they’re now celebrating a collection that has four headsets in their gaming range. Covering everything from those wanting something basic to the tech that packs a bigger punch, Sandberg’s gaming range has something for everyone.

Starting off with the entry model you’ve got the Twister. The lowest priced out of the four, this headset offers you the basic package, which is just what you need if you’re starting out. Next up is the Cyclone; a bump up from the Twister in terms of price and the punch that it packs, this headset comes equipped with 7.1 surround sound and USB connectivity. The third piece in the collection is one we’re a little more familiar with, the Blue Storm wireless headset. The clue’s in the title, this one, unlike the others, is wireless and we actually reviewed it not too long ago; you can check it out HERE. And then we have the final headset of the collection, the Derecho. Boasting virtual 7.1 Surround Sound, crystal clear microphone recording, Bass Vibration, multicoloured LED lights in the headphones and connectivity with USB, this is Sandberg’s pride of joy and the top model in their gaming headset range.

You can check out all those headsets and more of the gaming equipment from Sandberg right HERE.
