I've been reviewing Razer accessories and hardware for ages, and aside from the odd licence tie-in and those rainbow headsets, they have mostly had one thing in common — they have been black. Well now we've got the Mercury line, so bright and white they look like the restless spirits of real Razer products.

Back in June I made my PlayStation 4 look old and classy with a wooden cover by a company called Toast. It was fast and easy. Doing the same thing to my Nintendo Switch took a little more work.
If a modified Pelican case was the mother of Switch protectors, then this ornate, leather bag is the mother of all Zelda-inspired Nintendo Switch cases.
If you have a Nintendo Switch you probably love it. Just the right size and weight with a screen that's sharp and bright, one of the only issues is keeping it safe. Kotaku's Stephen Totilo put his in a sock, but there are other solutions out there, including retrofitting 3DS pouches using a bunch of arts and crafts foam sheets.
There are very good actual Nintendo Switch cases on the market, but sometimes the best solution to moving your console around can come from unofficial avenues.
Following a lengthy struggle with financial insolvency, gaming peripheral maker Mad Catz has formally ceased all operation. The company's directors and officers have all resigned, and its assets will be liquidated. The company that spent nearly three decades pumping out PC and console gaming gear is no more.
Say you recently dropped a chunk of cash on a new Nintendo Switch. You might leave it in the dock most of the time, but at some point you're gonna want to pick it up and take it with you. Before you do that, you should probably get a case.

The sweet convenience of reading/gaming/building a toilet roll fort from the comfort of one's bed, just before sleepy time and not having to walk to the light switch before closing your eyes. But your current lamp just isn't evil enough. It needs more horns. And teeth. And glowing yellow eyes.
Remember that custom Kotaku controller? The one with bullets for buttons? It's actual a more common modification than you think, replacing plastic inputs with metal ones, but you can go a little further, if you feel like it, by replacing the D-pad with the end of a 12-gauge shotgun shell.
If you, like me, recently dropped a couple hundred bucks on a 3DS XL, you probably have thought about picking up a case to keep it safe. The challenge is finding a case that is even remotely acceptable. For some reason, the majority of non-Nintendo-made 3DS accessories are poorly-made hunks of junk, a problem is compounded by the fact that there just aren't that many accessories out there for the relatively new XL.
Two big shooters fired out this spring: Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. If you are into shooters (I mean, really into shooters), maybe you are looking for an edge. That's exactly what Japanese peripheral maker Hori hopes it can offer with its controller designed especially for FPS games on consoles. But does the controller hit its market? Let's put the pad through the paces and find out.
