The focus is on comfort, durability, and clarity of sound in an affordable package.<br><br>And I'd say Razer has done a pretty good job of achieving that - particularly as it works across all of the devices you own.<br><br>But it does fall slightly short of the mark. At £79.99, you'd want this headset to be sufficient for every single purpose, and it doesn't quite reach that.<br><br><strong>Look<br><br></strong><br><br>The Kraken Pro V2 comes in three distinct colours: black, white, and Razer's signature green. The design is very minimal and stylish, and as long as you choose the right colour you'll feel pretty happy wearing them.<br><br>It also looks distinctly premium, thanks to a liberal use of quality and durable materials. It's mostly metal, rather than plastic, which is always a pleasure. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/PS+Vita/Razer+Kraken+Pro+V2/hardware_review.asp?c=74507'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/PS+Vita/Razer+Kraken+Pro+V2/hardware_review.asp?c=74507 Thu, 29 Jun 2017 10:10:50 GMT The best deals of the week in handheld and mobile - June 26 <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-kgv_kingdom_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="The best deals of the week in handheld and mobile - June 26" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> Welcome, everyone, to our weekly round-up of the best deals in pocket gaming.

What we're really looking for is someone who can create wiki-style spreadsheets of data, and make them look nice on our site in a speedy manner.<br><br>We will be honest - there won't be an awful lot of writing involved, as it's mostly data entry and getting the HTML code just right. You may also need to pop into PhotoShop to spruce up a few images as well.<br><br>For an example of what we're looking for, take a look at <a href="/r/iPhone/Clash+Royale/feature.asp?c=68703">this</a>.

After meeting a sleeping giant, the two must work together to solve the many deadly puzzles of the castle. <br><br>With Rose's powers and the giant's strength and impenetrability, it's up to you to unearth the blood memories to piece together a shattered past. You'll die a lot. Sometimes accidentally, sometimes on purpose, but always learn from it.  <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/PS+Vita/A+Rose+in+the+Twilight/news.asp?c=73699'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/PS+Vita/A+Rose+in+the+Twilight/news.asp?c=73699 Wed, 19 Apr 2017 12:46:36 GMT Destroy Wurst Zombies and Hipster Giants in Lichtspeer, out now on PlayStation Vita <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-igpt_12049737_982106995166594_2097575216709656902_n_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="Destroy Wurst Zombies and Hipster Giants in Lichtspeer, out now on PlayStation Vita" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> It's been a while but the glorious neon arcade game <em>Lichtspeer</em> is out at last on PlayStation Vita. <br><br><em>Lichtspeer</em> is an action arcade game based in an ancient Germanic future - yes, you read that right.

Beware even the fish lest it leap from the water and bite your head off. It'll probably still please the gods, but it won't please you. <br><br>Grab the game on the <a href="https://www.playstation.com/en-us/games/lichtspeer-psvita/">PlayStation Store </a>now for £9.99/$9.99.
