Remedy Entertainment, the developers behind games like Max Payne, Alan Wake, and now Quantum Break, are part of a dying breed: Developers who create tight, guided, single-player games with strong narrative elements. They took their time with Alan Wake and ended up with a game that many Xbox 360 owners consider one of their favorites of the last generation.

The developer stuck to their guns, so to speak, but tried to innovate by bringing interactive television into the fold. It’s a bold strategy, but one with tons of pitfalls.

Quantum Break puts us in the shoes of Jack Joyce, a guy imbued with powers that allow him to manipulate time following an accident with a time machine that will eventually cause time to end.

Let’s wade through the long development time, some of the recent drama around the game’s resolution, and figure out just what we have here and whether or not it’s worth your time.

Logitech’ G502 Core mouse is really popular. It even has its own questionably named subreddit. It makes sense that Logitech would want to iterate and improve on it. That brings us to the G502 Proteus Spectrum. As the name suggests, this mouse is close to the G502, but with an emphasis on flexibility (that’s the proteus part). And also it lights up (that’s the spectrum part). The mouse offers a variety of ways to customize the way you use it meaning that, as long as you’re right-handed, you can make this mouse work for just about any application you can imagine. With that said, this is definitely a mouse for gamers.

For the past 10 years, with a few exceptions, I’ve called the Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 my keyboard of choice. I’ve bought probably 9 or 10 of them over the years, hammering through one every couple years thanks to hours and hours of daily typing. One of them saved my hands from carpal tunnel, and I treated my bond with the keyboard like a Wookie life debt.

I might have finally, after all that time, found an acceptable replacement: the Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum, Logitech’s mid-line offering in the mechanical keyboard market.
