Eightarc's Q2 Glow arcade stick can light up when you hit buttons, when struck by an opponent, and more - check out Jason24cf's video review

EventHubs correspondent Jason24cf just uploaded his video review of the new Eightarc Qanba Q2 Glow fightstick for the Xbox 360. This fightstick is called the "Glow" due to the fully functioning LEDs in the stick itself, the 8 buttons, and start button.

Jason goes through each of the 3 LED modes, giving a lights-off demonstration to show us how and when the lights are activated.

He goes on to give his thoughts, and impressions about the Q2 glow, along with a summary of its functions and features. More>

New Setup 2.12.14

posted Feb 13, 2014, 7:35 PM by sf3forever   [ updated Jun 30, 2015, 5:51 AM by Ric Lop ]

Only two months into the new year and here comes another round of change the setup.

First a little background.  I recently started using a 61" rear projection TV for our main gaming screen.  With the new addition I immediately noticed that my sitting distance was far too close.  My timing and reactions were slowed.  The farther I moved back the better my timing and reactions became. 

A short time later I had a conversation with someone about their friend.  This friend played first person shooters competitively.  This guy said his friend will only play on a 22" monitor.  And added "maybe there's something to that."  I thought about the impact the big screen initially had on my game play.  Then there's the fact that it's older technology.  The resolution and refresh rates are lower.  Then I thought, now what if you add screen size, input lag and low refresh rates?  This can't be good. 

LCD Monitors are exceptionally cheap these days, but shopping for a new gaming monitor quickly became a nightmare.  I won't go into too much detail but long story short, after a bit of research I learned of these critical specs.  Response time, Input Lag, and Refresh Rate.(and $$$)  My journey led me to the BenQ RT2450HT

Watch this video for more info.

Now a monitor like this is great for your self but what if you have company.  It's not easy sharing a 24" screen.  This is why I decided to purchase two!

New Iteration

New audio system!  (LG DV418) 

And the latest ESGN SFIV games have inspired a new setup.  I'd like to revisit the "back to back" setup.  This time downsizing the screen size to 27" HD monitors.  Here are the first shots. Nothing finalized yet.

New Setup

New setup with a 61" Samsung DLP rear projection TV.
Had to switch the Xbox output from SD to HDTV.  Then change the resolution to 720p. 

So Far so good.  Takes some getting used to.  Mainly because it's so large.  If you sit too close you find your self turning your head to view the other side of the screen.  I'll have to find the best sitting distance and viewing angle.  Also I'd like to raise it up a bit.  I think it may be a little too low.  I don't want to have to physically look down to see my meter.
