TL;DR: An impressive number of Razer gaming accessories are on sale at Best Buy — as of Aug. 28, you can score the Razer Kraken X headset and Ornata V2 keyboard bundle for $99.99.
In case you got distracted by The Last of Us 2 or the unsatisfying mess that is the Avengers beta, here’s a reminder of the games we have to look forward to for the rest of 2020 (a year that coincidentally also feels like a simulation): Crusader Kings 3, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2, Baldur’s Gate 3, Star Wars Squadrons, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are all slotted for release before Black Friday. As of Aug. 28, Madden 21 is also officially available for purchase.
PC gamers decking out their light-up gaming cave is nothing new — but if you somehow made it through all of quarantine (so far) without upgrading your space, this fall is the time to do so. You’ll probably be spending more time than usual there. Nailing the right combination of Razer gaming accessories on sale at Best Buy could land you a new backlit keyboard, headset, and mouse for less than $150 or $200.
To be fair, pro-PC people aren’t the only group who could benefit from a nice pair of headphones. PS4 and Xbox players can probably agree that their TV speakers leave something to be desired and that the lack of a personal microphone can screw with the experience — especially in games like Fortnite where the other team’s footsteps (or your buddy’s instructions ) are meticulous details that can win or lose the game.

If you’ve given even a single thought to upgrading your PC setup — or trying your hand at PC gaming for the first time — since quarantine began, this bundle deal is the sign that it’s time. For $99.99, you can upgrade to two classic Razer accessories: the lightweight and noise-isolating Kraken X headset and the hybrid switch Ornata V2 keyboard that fuses membrane keys and mechanical switches.
A general rule for gaming headsets: If your biggest concern is long-lasting comfort, buy Razer. The plush ear cups and flexible frame offer a snug fit that doesn’t call for adjusting in the middle of an intense run-in with The Infected. The Kraken Ultimate headset in particular uses THX Spatial audio to deliver realistic surround sound and has a 6.6-foot cable that will connect to your controller
As many folks gear up for a fall filled with lots of gaming and working from home, the case for splurging on a premium mechanical keyboard has never been stronger. The cushy leatherette wrist rest provides both a comfortable typing experience and comfortable marathon play sessions. Obvious advantages of a badass rainbow home office aside, the RGB backlit keys are fully customizable to your play preferences.
