Admittedly using a proper gaming mouse is a first for me, and playing some of the different types of games on my Steam account using this mouse was a different experience. Yes, I do consider myself a Noob to PC Gaming and I am embarrassed to say this was new for me after gaming for many years using consoles, I am however getting more into PC Gaming as I was won over by the accessibility of PC Gaming on the Steam platform, just never really thought it was something for a lazy gamer like me. I always pictured this being used for Gamers with multiple flat screens, headsets and amazing looking towers but it is my opinion I think for any casual gamer or anyone interested in starting to play that it will be a more than welcomed addition to their tech setup. It does say it’s for MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online (gaming)) and role play games, but I think in general it is so comfortable to use even on graphic design software, I end up keeping it attached to my laptop or PC permanently.
When looking at this tech it seems complicated like a barrier into the gaming experience but it’s an advanced mouse optimized for gaming. I can’t really go back from using this mouse and have also decided to look into investing in a gaming keyboard.
This piece of tech really is and looks awesome, if you don’t believe me look at the pictures I took of it.
I used the Razer Naga expert MMO gaming mouse in conjunction with the Razer Destructor 2 expert hard gaming mouse mat and Razer Synapse 2.0 (the world’s first cloud-based storage for personalised gaming setting). The process was real easy to set up as the 12 button mechanical thumb grid which works the same as a keyboard’s numerical keys and is therefore the action bar layout of most MMO and role playing games are replicated onto the thumb grid buttons.
This makes my gameplay controls more seamless and less frustrating, I actually managed to get into the game playing much faster and more efficiently. Needless to say you end up actually spending more time enjoying the games as it works well with this tech.
Funnily enough I didn’t initially think much of a gaming mouse pad, I mean how advanced can a mouse pad be? I pretty much thought it’s there to keep dust from getting in the laser, and what can it add to the gaming controls? I WAS WRONG it also makes a difference. Basically tiny silver flakes embedded over the surface heightens its reflective quality which I guess that means improves the responsiveness of the mouse. So if you get drag… it isn’t the mouse. I did test the mouse on other surfaces and a conventional mouse pad but the alternatives provided worse resistance to the movement. The Razer Destructor 2 was the right level of resistance. I can just imagine the poor lab assistant who had to test that feature until it was right.
Ergonomics in a gaming mouse to me boils down to 3 simple questions: are the controls placed correctly? Can it fit in the palm of my hand comfortably? and can I move it effortlessly?
My verdict I would say is yes, yes and definitely yes… also it looks cool in the dark. It feels natural and has a comfortable texture. It’s a precision instrument for gaming with the best accuracy and sensitivity I have experienced.
