3/5/2013 10:00:00 AM
League of Legends is one of the most popular PC games currently. Who knew that a free MOBA would take the PC world by storm. Razer’s partnering with Riot games to produce some officially licensed League of Legends PC peripherals to give you some cool looking mice and mouse pad while you play.
The Razer Naga Hex League of Legends Collector’s Edition
is a mouse made for MOBAs. Jeremy reviewed
the normal edition and really liked the mouse. The six programmable buttons on the side gives you quick access to actions that you can set for yourself. The 5600DPI 3G laser provides accurate movement and it’s shaped to fit your hand comfortably.
Here you can see the unboxing of said mouse that Razer was kind enough to provide. You can see it comes with the usual documentation and stickers that’s standard in all Razer products. Also included is an unlock code for a the game’s champion and skin.
Razer’s gone and added some nice League of Legends branding to the already established mouse.. First off, there’s the game’s logo on top of the palm rest in yellow. Secondly, iIf you look at the mouse wheel itself, you can see a rune script design . Available for $89.99, the Razer Naga Hex League of Legends Collector’s Edition is a solid gaming mouse with some nice subtle designs from one of the hottest PC games to date.
The second League of Legends branded product is a Goliathus
mouse pad. If you’re going to be gaming long or short and need that accurate yet quick mouse movement, the Goliathus is here to help you. The cloth mat features a beautifully designed scene inspired by League of Legends. On the bottom is a rubber based that’s made to keep the mat in its place when being used.
Soft to the touch, the Goliathus mouse pad has been around for a while through various iterations from Razer, so you know it’s a solid performer. The League of Legends Collector’s Edition of the Goliathus also features an unlock code for a champion and skin, just like the Naga Hex. $20 will net you this soft, yet high performing mouse pad.
While the two new products aren’t new in terms of models, they are two very solid peripherals which League of Legends fans will have a great time using. Branded with said game, the two League of Legends Collector’s Edition products would make a great addition to one’s gaming setup.
As as side note, we'll be giving these two products away one of our upcoming radio shows on CD102.5
, which is aired at Wednesday mornings around 8:45 AM EST.
