Logitech and Herman Miller collaborate on a $1,500 gaming chair

In a collaboration that’s been in the works for some time, gaming accessory maker Logitech has partnered with luxury office chair brand Herman Miller to create the ultimate gaming chair. Want one? It’ll set you back $1,500.

While this is a crazy amount of money in general, it is par for the course for a Herman Miller chair. Even with the current discounts on its site, no chair it sells is under $600, with many over $1,000 and some that cost nearly $2,500.

When I recently mentioned my intention to get a new chair, most of the feedback advised picking up a used Herman Miller chair. With how many hours I spend at my desk writing and streaming, having a good chair is of the utmost importance.

An evolution of its already existing Embody chair, this seat has a few new bells and whistles geared specifically toward gaming. The chair has copper-infused cooling foam in its back support and seat cushion to help reduce your body temperature. Additional foam in the cushion helps keep you sitting upright. The seat can also be extended for additional support for the knees depending on each users needs.

The seat offers unparalleled customization for arm and back support. The arm rests can be swung wide to the sides or brought in tight for laptop usage. They can even be lowered to cushion level for gamers who prefer to not even have them. The back support can be tweaked for your specific spinal needs, and is designed to replicate your posture while standing, which is scientifically the best thing for your spine.

While many gaming chairs look like they were ripped right out of the front of a racing car, Logitech and Herman Miller are releasing a unique option with a focus on comfort and making sure that a player’s health is at the forefront of their design philosophy. Unfortunately, the price tag will prohibit many gamers from being able to experience this for themselves.

Evil Dead: The Game shines where other 4v1 games fail
Ash Williams and other characters in Evil Dead: The Game

Like a good jump scare, Evil Dead: The Game came out of nowhere. The multiplayer game quietly launched on May 13 (a Friday, of course) with no prerelease reviews and little fanfare. The quiet hype cycle may have worked in its favor, as the game has turned out to be a bit of a pleasant (and gory) surprise.

Forget Sonic 1-3, where are my Sonic Game Gear remasters?

This June, Sonic fans will get to relive the series' most iconic games. Sonic Origins features newly remastered editions of the original Sega Genesis trilogy alongside Sonic CD. For video game historians, it’s an important collection that keeps some of gaming’s most fundamental building blocks properly preserved.

Though, it’s not like those games are hard to find. Games like Sonic the Hedgehog 2 have been released and rereleased dozens of times since the 1990s, coming to seemingly every platform imaginable. The same can’t be said for other, less celebrated Sonic games. Case in point: Tails Adventure. When I was thinking about the Game Gear spinoff starring Miles “Tails” Prower recently, I remembered I had to dig up my Nintendo 3DS and rush to the eShop to make sure I downloaded it before it shuts down for good.
