Mad Catz Call of Duty: Black Ops ProGaming Glasses Review
I've always disliked wearing eyewear. From my elementary school up through high school, I wore glasses to see anything beyond arms reach. Contact lens were a fashionable alternative, so long as I didn't blink, or need to wear them for more than a few minutes. Eventually laser corrective surgery fixed my vision to better than perfect, and I've been happy ever since. Then came 3D products, putting me behind eyewear reminiscent of Marine Corps BCG's (birth control glasses). While I'm supremely optimistic for a 3D future without eyewear, there are still times when I must endure the burden of a frame resting on my nose. This is another one of those occasions.
Over the past four years of operating Benchmark Reviews, I've worked absurdly long hours to produce quality articles for this website. It's a lot of fun, but fourteen-hour work days on nearly every day of the week can truly wear down a person's body. It's not necessarily hard physical work, aside from keeping awake well past a normal bed time, but it really puts a terrible strain on my premium-priced eyes. Making matters worse, ironically, there are times in my day when testing a product means playing a video game for extended periods. Collectively, these tireless efforts have turned my eyes from green to red. As a result, I decided to visit the evil realm of eyewear once again.
Enter Gunnar Optiks, the designers behind the Mad Catz Call of Duty: Black Ops ProGaming glasses. Still a week away from debut, the Call of Duty: Black Ops game is a highly-anticipated title among gamers. I'm actually aware of this, because I'm also reviewing the game and conducting out-of-screen NVIDIA 3D Vision testing. Then it occurred to me: I'm going to work from dusk until dawn, and Mad Catz offers a themed product that promises optical clarity and reduced eye strain. Behold, the Mad Catz Call of Duty: Black Ops ProGaming glasses!
When there is no time to blink, you need performance optics. The Call of Duty: Black Ops ProGaming Glasses enhance the visual experience for the most demanding gamers.
