Grab this sweet Corsair wireless headset for a discount this week

All throughout March, Corsair has offered a range of headsets, keyboards, and gaming mice for lower than normal prices on Amazon. As we head into the first week of April, there is still time to pick up one of Corsair’s great headsets on sale. The Corsair HS70 is on sale once again for $80, down from its standard retail price of $100, from March 31 to April 6.

The HS70 is the latest in Corsair’s HS series of headsets and comes in three colors: White, carbon, and SE. Though marketed as a PC gaming headset, the HS70 can also be used with PlayStation 4 via the included dongle. The HS70 is fully wireless and features 7.1 surround sound.

One of the most important aspects of any gaming headset is its range and accuracy. The HS70 has 50mm neodymium drivers to help you hear intricate noises even during the fiercest of in-game firefights, while offering enough accuracy to hear footsteps and which direction they’re coming from. The HS70 has an impressive range and great bass, so it performs well as a standard audio headset as well.

Featuring low-latency 2.4GHz wireless audio, the HS70 has a range of up to 40 feet and can last for 16 hours on a single charge. The unidirectional microphone is designed to pick up your voice while eliminating ambient noise for crisp communication. You can also detach the microphone if you simply want to play with game audio, or if you’re using the headset to listen to music. Volume control and mute buttons are conveniently located directly on the earcups.

Built for comfort over the course of long gaming sessions, the HS70’s earcups are made of memory foam and can be adjusted for fit. It’s always difficult to find a headset that remains comfortable through prolonged play, and the HS70 is one of the best in the comfort department, especially in its price range.

If you are looking for a headset for Xbox One or Switch, perhaps check out the HS60. Normally $70, the HS60 has been on sale as of late for around $50 on Amazon. The only real difference between the two models is that the HS60 is wired, not wireless.

Everything we know about Alan Wake 2
Alan Wake Looking Grizzly In Alan Wake 2.

The original Alan Wake is a game that went through quite a troubled development before it was finally released. After many iterations and changes in scope and direction, the final product was initially a cult hit, but didn't hit the mass market it needed -- at least not initially. After two DLC episodes, a sequel was in the works to build upon the first game and revive some of the elements that had to be cut from the first in order for it to ship, but this was ultimately not meant to be. The sequel was canceled and a smaller downloadable game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, was released instead.

Since then, we hadn't heard from our intrepid writer until he showed up in a very unlikely place. Featured in the AWE expansion for a completely different game, Control, Alan was back in the picture. With a remaster of the initial game catching everyone up on his first appearance, now was the perfect time to announce that the long-awaited sequel was back in development. We haven't found all the manuscript pages yet, but here is everything we know about Alan Wake 2.

The best Xbox Series X games for 2023
Two Spartans side by side in Halo Infinite.

After an uneven console cycle with the Xbox One, Microsoft's latest consoles are aimed at getting the ship back on course. The Xbox Series X is a next-generation powerhouse that rivals gaming PCs, while the Xbox Series S is an affordable stopgap for those who are curious about trying new games.

There's no shortage of games to play on either console thanks to Xbox Game Pass, which gives players immediate access to a library of titles old and new. That built-in catalog is an extra value on top of all the new games available on the system that take advantage of its impressive technical specs. When it comes to first-party exclusives, the Series X is still growing. Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 gave a good boost to the console's library following a somewhat sparse first year. More games are also on the way. Microsoft's Bethesda acquisition will bring exclusives like Starfield and Redfall, and the potential addition of all Activision Blizzard games would further bolster that list, but the console's real strength lies in third-party support.

Skull and Bones: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
Two ships fire cannons at each other other a small island in Skull & Bones.

Ubisoft has a few notoriously troubled games in development that have left fans scratching their heads for years now. Aside from Beyond Good and Evil 2, the most curious game that has managed to avoid cancellation despite years of delays, restarts, and who knows what else behind the scenes is the pirate game Skull and Bones. It was first announced in 2017, and we've gotten almost nothing but bad news regarding this title in the years since. Despite having a playable build in 2018, for press only, the game has undergone major, if not complete overhauls.

Promised as a fully fleshed-out game built around the incredibly popular ship combat featured in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Skull and Bones was poised to make a big splash following that game's success. Gamers loved all the pirate activities seen in that game, so expanding on that should've been an easy move. However, public statements about the game have almost completely vanished, leaving many gamers high and dry regarding the status of this pirate epic. We pulled out our compass, plotted our course, and dug up all the details on Skull and Bones that you need to know.
