Logitech’s new Prodigy G 2016 lineup has stuck to its basic consumer gaming roots, including RGB lighting, sleek and simple designs, and included software that’s functional and fun to use.

Video games are fun, but sometimes the best Easter eggs are developer screw-ups. Yes, the glitches. You know you’ve all seen the gifs of FIFA players dry humping each other circulating Reddit. So why not list the best and worst of video game graphic fails? Some laughter in the office will do you some good anyway.

By now you’ve probably had a chance to sink your teeth in to the first bit of stellar “Witcher 3” expansion content, “Hearts Of Stone,” and find yourself wanting the adventure to continue. Well, fear not, for there’s more on the way. CD Projekt Red has released screens from their next DLC offering, “Blood And Wine,” and they look incredible.
