René Korte, CEO and founder of ROCCAT discusses the amazingly versatile Nyth, an MMO mouse that is so much more. Says René, “We’ve wanted to develop our own MMO mouse for a long time, but like always, we end up seeing a bigger picture once we begin brainstorming. MMO mice have these massive button grids that are locked in. You can change the button functionality, but what if you don’t like the layout? Our solution is a wholly modular MMO mouse, with interchangeable button combinations that suit the player. No two gamers are alike, and because we know that, we’ve gone many steps beyond just allowing them to switch out the in-package button options. Our fans will have access to our button inventory files, and those that are into 3D printing can even create their very own.” But ROCCAT didn’t stop there. “The Nyth’s soul is MMO,” René explains,” but with high modu...

Roccat Ryos MK Glow

Introduction ROCCAT has been known for delivering exceptional peripherals like keyboards, mice, headphones and mouse pads. They also have notebooks available but only in Germany. However, when it comes to keyboards, they have been a bit behind the times. After taking a year in development, they are ready to introduce gamers to the Ryos Series. We have the opportunity to review the Ryos MK Glow. It features a built-in palm rest, individual LED keys, an anti-smudge surface, fully capable macros and individual key remapping. When it comes to their first Mechanical keyboard, ROCCAT makes a bold statement, “The most advanced, most customizable mechanical keyboard ever – NOBODY comes close! Introducing the illuminated ROCCAT™ Ryos MK Glow mechanical gaming keyboard. With an eye-watering number of configuration options and high-quality CHERRY MX key switches, you can break out – and unleash the gaming beast within.” We have to ask ourselves, Is ROCCAT being overly confident with their first keyboard? There’s plenty of other manufacturers who have been releasing Mechanical keyboards for years and haven’t claimed to be the most customizable. If their statement is true, will there be room for improvement? These are just a few questions that come to mind after such a bold statement. Before we find out if the Ryos MK Glow will live up to their statement, let’s find out a bit more about the company.   Founded in 2007, ROCCAT™ develops high qu...
