That Flashy Neon Rider SteelSeries Kit Is Finally Making Its Way Down Under

That Flashy Neon Rider SteelSeries Kit Is Finally Making Its Way Down Under

Allow me to be upfront with this one – I’ve never touched CS:GO and I probably never will. That’s hardly about to stop me absolutely frothing over SteelSeries’ new Neon Rider-themed gaming peripherals based on the popular in-game CS:GO skins.

These things are shit-hot, and they’ve been wiped from shop floors around the world for good reason. Based on two already-excellent products, the Sensei Ten gaming mouse and the QcK Large mouse pad, they’re a great addition to your setup, provided ‘I’m a gamer, I have many lives’ is your ideal home decor aesthetic.

The good news is that if these are your bag, they’re headed to our shores very soon and have been made available to preorder as of today. If you live in Australia you can find them over at PC Case Gear and if you happen to be reading this from across the pond in NZ you can head to Mighty Ape or Playtech. Check out the full product info for both, right here:

Now, SteelSeries were kind enough to hook us up with the Neon Rider Sensei Ten and QcK Large (#notasponsoredpost) and as you can see from our glamour shot at the top of the page they definitely look the goods in person. All that’s left is for us to invest in a bunch more neon strobe lighting for the (imaginary) WellPlayed office to complete the look.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
