Scuf Prestige Xbox/PC Controller review

first_imgScuf have been making high-end game controllers for almost a decade now, they have had a long term relationship with Microsoft and have also been named as the exclusive Xbox 3rd party controller for pro gaming. We’ve been given a new Prestige Xbox One controller to put through its paces and it’s a very nice piece of kit.We’re going to cover ease of use in terms of setting up the unique features of the controller and assessing whether it really makes a difference when gaming.View the official launch trailer below:The Scuf Prestige controller has lots of customisation options, the thumbsticks and back paddles can be replaced, the hair triggers can be adjusted, controls can be remapped to one of the four rear-mounted paddles, the rear paddles can be swapped out and there is a quick shift trigger stop system.Inside the very nice box comes the controller itself, a high-quality long length USB charging cable, two extra thumbsticks, the Mag Key (see later for what this does), a small trigger screw, plus an easy to understand set of instructions. The Prestige can be used on Xbox One and PC and comes in a wide range of colours.Out of the box, the Scuf Prestige feels like a quality item. Size-wise it’s pretty much identical to a standard Xbox One controller but the rubberised grips make it feel very different and in a very good way.  I’ve found that in stressful situations the standard controller can start to feel slippy, not so with the Prestige. I tried this out on the most stressful game I own (Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice) and not once did I feel like it would slip from my fingers!The button remapping feature is designed to keep both of your hands on the thumbsticks saving you precious seconds of faffing to find the correct button when you’re in a pinch. Each of the four paddles on the rear of the Prestige can be assigned to act as one of fourteen different buttons including the D-pad, X, Y, A, B and bumpers. The process is straightforward and only takes a few seconds to do.Credit: Scuf GamingIn the box is the EMR Mag key which you magnetically stick to the rear of the controller. Next, you press the paddle you want along with the button you want remapping, release the button then the paddle and you’re done. Once the Mag key is removed buttons can’t be remapped until it’s reattached meaning you can’t mess up what you’ve done by accident.Once remapping is complete the paddles act as the assigned button without any fuss. It takes a lot of getting used to as years of muscle memory is a challenge to overcome but they definitely do the job they are supposed to.The adjustable hair triggers are designed with increased response times in mind, if the trigger has to travel a shorter distance to activate the trigger is effectively pulled faster giving you an edge. To adjust the hair-trigger it’s simply a case of using the provided trigger screw to either tighten or loosen each trigger individually until you get the feeling that you’re after. This takes a bit of trial and error to get right as each person wants a different feel but it’s very easy to do. The trigger stops also have the same idea in mind but they can only be switched on or off. The stops are easily accessible on the rear of the controller but feel a little stiff if you needed to turn them on or off quickly.Credit: Scuf GamingChanging the faceplate or thumbsticks is also a breeze. The faceplate simply unclicks giving you quick access to the thumbsticks which also simply pull off. I did, however, hit a bit of a snag when trying to change the rear paddles. They are designed to be swapped out easily but I found them to be a bit fragile to the point where one the paddles is now permanently bent out of shape and now feels weird when my hands are on the controller. It’s certainly not a reason to slam the controller but if you do get one, make sure you’re extra careful with the paddles.So far, so good. The Scuf Prestige is a very nice controller with very easy to use features designed to give you the edge in gaming. The question is, does it make you a better gamer?If I’m being honest I would say it actually makes you worse to begin with as you have to learn a whole new control scheme. As I mentioned before, all of the years of muscle memory will take some time to overcome. I imagine it would be much easier to start using the controller with a game you haven’t played before so that you don’t already know the control scheme.Credit: Scuf GamingOnce you managed to get to grips with things though you should find your gameplay starting to improve. It really does make a massive difference being able to keep your hands on the thumbsticks permanently. The triggers, in my mind at least, are aimed at competitive shooters where a split second reaction can make all the difference. I actually don’t think I’m good enough at these sorts of games to do the triggers justice as I would need a five-second advantage to take someone out rather than the milliseconds of time saved with the Prestige. That said, the simple fact that if the time it takes for your Xbox to register the trigger has been pulled is shorter means you will be at a distinctive advantage against anyone using a standard controller.To sum up, the Scuf Prestige is a very nice premium controller. The customisation options are very easy to implement and once you’ve got used to them, will change the way you play forever. Even if it just came with the rubberised handgrips I’d be a convert but all of the other options will make you a better gamer, or at least allow you to respond much quicker to situations in your games. For anyone looking to get a competitive edge then this is the controller for you, I would also recommend it if you simply want to upgrade your standard controller to something a bit nicer.The Scuf Prestige is available now and pricing starts at £129.99.View some more SUCF Prestige images in our gallery below: Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaming Credit: SCUF Gaminglast_img read more

Projected First-Rounder Myles Garrett Wants To Play Somewhere Warm In The NFL…Just Like Everyone Else

first_imgThe Cleveland Browns have all but locked up the number one pick in the NFL Draft this year. So while most people watch the playoffs and cheer on their team, Cleveland will be scouting the next player to bring into town in hopes of finding their franchise star.That pick could be used on Texas A&M star Defensive End Myles Garrett, who has yet to declare for the NFL Draft but is expected to soon. Garrett is a Junior who has impressed scouts throughout his college career. The stat that stands out the most is the amount of sacks he has made, as he has totaled 32.0 sacks in his career. That stat would stand out to any team in a position to draft Garrett. It just so happens the team that has first choice plays in the cold.So, why is the climate of Cleveland, Ohio being brought up right now?According to Brent Zwerneman from the Houston Chronicle, Garrett was asked about his preference of what team he wanted to go to. Garrett smiled and said “Doesn’t matter … but I’d like not to go anywhere cold.”Though Garrett intended this to be a joke, it won’t be laughed off by NFL Draft Insiders, scouts and whoever else has an opinion on who their favorite team should take. Every single thing these players say and do will be over-analyzed, as teams are trying to figure out who’s the next Cam Newton and who’s the next JaMarcus Russell. So Garrett was very smart to follow up by talking about his desire to be a star for any team that drafts him. “Whoever picks me up, I’m going to try and play my best for, to be the best player on the field at any given time. It doesn’t matter who picks me up, I’m going to try and be a franchise player for them.”So, take the quote from the Garrett very lightly. It was a joke from a college kid excited to be where he’s at. But while trying to make light of the situation, Garrett might have opened up a discussion for months to come on the road to Draft Night. Elijah Mooneyham has been a dedicated sports fan his whole life. Born and raised in Cleveland, he has his best days when his hometown teams are winning. Elijah is currently on-air talent/producer on two shows, The Main Event and The Moon Hour, where you can find on He also has an insane passion for professional wrestling, so catch his opinions on the world of professional wrestling.

Juneau Lawmaker Skeptical About LNG Project, ‘Permanent Fund’ Credit

first_imgJuneau Democratic Rep. Sam Kito says he is far from being settled with the idea… Rep. Kito (D-Juneau): “From my perspective, I definitely have to get some more information, but Id o have some concern that if the major suppliers of the gas and the major, what were going to be major, investors in the project are saying it’s not economic for them, there are some things that could make it a little more economic for the sovereign, for the State of Alaska, but it’s a significant risk that we’re taking and it’s something that we have to look at very carefully, because I don’t want to go down a  path where we’re obligating the State, either through future revenue or through some kind of a partnership or bonding, to have to pay $45-65 billion on a natural gas pipeline project when really our credit balance is the $54 billion we have in the Permanent Fund.” Kito says he’s still waiting for more information and a clearer picture of how the financing of the project will be worked out.center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享State lawmakers continue to wrestle with the Governor’s hope that Alaska will build the AK LNG Project without the support of the Big 3 oil producers after ExxonMobil, BP, and ConocoPhillips announced they were withdrawing as partners.last_img read more
