Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns Review - Cultural Bonanza

In my experience, monster hunting titles tend to have a very weak narrative -- one that often just serves as your forgettable backdrop to hunting and gathering.While you can choose to just hack and slash your way through like you would in a standard monster hunting game, this sequel offers you a considerable amount of offensive options.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 Headset Review: Great Sound Meets Tons of Functionality

Although the largest in its line, the Arctis 7 is still a surprisingly small headset -- which makes it great for traveling.Because of its buoyant ski band, the Arctis 7 feels unlike any other headset on the market.

SteelSeries Arctis 3 Headset Review: Competent Sound at an Affordable Price

But the Arctis 3 is a competent and sometimes brilliant budget headset that feels like an afterthought in the Arctis line (especially when compared to the impressive Arctis 7 headset, which has excellent sound and comes packed with functionality).Coming at the tail-end of the Arctis line, the Arctis 3 offers users adequate sound and ridiculously cozy comfortability in a small and easily-portable package.
