As most of you know Game of Thrones Season 3 aired 2 days ago and so after watching the first episode i still can't figure out why game developers have still to make an RTS based on the series. Sure it would take some time for someone to actually make a good RTS based on the series but since the storyline is already done and the landscape is also ready (based on the intro map) so why not? A 3rd person RPG based on the series was released last year and we did end up playing it but that's an experience I’d rather forget all together if possible (yes it was that bad). Luckily as things are now we have quite a few single and MMO FPS (First Person Shooter) games and since we are currently spending quite a few hours per day on some of them we decided to test the SHRIKE HL2 gaming mouse designed and manufactured by a brand new player on the block called Tesoro.
Tesoro Technology USA Inc, a team of U.S.A gaming enthusiasts. With the objective of designing unique products specially catered to the gamers. We focused on PC gaming and our mission is to create products with better design, increase and reach for peak performances.

Tesoro could not exist without the gaming community who inspire us to excel in the design and production of our award winning gear. As a gamers company, we will continues to expand into new horizons and push the limits further with each product unveiling. We Strive to develop innovative cutting edge computer gaming peripherals to help improve your gaming experience. We maximize our ability to meet the needs of the fast changing PC gaming industry.
The SHRIKE may be one of the first attempts by Tesoro in their way to try and take over a segment of the gaming peripherals market but it's actually quite good in both in terms of specifications and overall build quality. To be more specific the SHRIKE gaming mouse features an very fast 5600DPI laser sensor (adjustable in 5 increments), 8 fully programmable buttons, 1000MHz polling rate, 128kb of onboard memory, adjustable weight system (35g extra), LED illumination and a total of 40 possible macro configurations through 5 different mapping sets/profiles. Granted these are not breathtaking specifications and we have seen better quite a few times in the past but for a first try by a brand new manufacturer these are actually better than we had hoped. How do all of these translate in real world usage however is a whole different story and so as usual follow us as we try to find out exactly that.
