Review: FUSION Pro Wired Controller for Xbox One

The best feeling controller I've ever used.

Much like its FightPad sibling, the Fusion Pro Wired Controller for Xbox One is also an officially licensed product from Microsoft. That is about where the similarities end between these two drastically different peripherals. Where the FightPad is focused on just one specific genre, the Fusion Pro is built to take on all types of games.

This controller features a soft touch plastic faceplate, rubberized back, metallic accent rings, the same snap-lock USB cable from the FightPad, a 3.5mm audio jack on...
 

Review: FUSION Wired FightPad for Xbox One

A design blast from the past.

About a month ago, we brought you news on some new controllers coming out from PowerA. Specifically, the news was about the company's new FUSION Pro controllers and their FUSION FightPad offerings. At the same time, we were offered the opportunity to review these controllers.

Over the past month, I have put both the black FUSION Pro Wired Controller for Xbox One and the FUSION Wired FightPad for Xbox One through their paces. Of the two, I have spent far more time with the Pro controller, but you can read about that...
 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Does Away with Prestige Levels

New progression system details revealed.

A new blog focused on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare went up today that talks about the progression changes that were made for this year's release. First off, there are no more Prestige levels. Players will be able to earn 55 base levels and 100 additional Officer Ranks in each season of play.

This news comes hot on the heels of word that Modern Warfare is doing away with paid map packs and loot boxes.

Each weapon now also has 100 earnable camo patterns and an average of 50 attachments. You...
 

Review: GreedFall (PC)

A long and thrilling journey.

GreedFall is a game that filled a gaping void I did not know I had for a new action-RPG experience. Though it lacks some of the polish you would expect from a major game release these days, the game still rewards the player with fun and varied combat, complex story beats, and an overall experience that should make even the veterans at BioWare sit up and take notice. For those of you that have been on the fence about picking up GreedFall, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not go pick it up right now.

Blizzard Issues Insultingly Pathetic Statement About Blitzchung Suspension and Reasoning

The cowards just doubled down.

Taking a page from politicians and businesses that know late on Friday is the best time to release news that you are positively ashamed to share, Blizzard has finally issued a statement about the recent ban on Blitzchung and two Hearthstone casters.

Before we get into it all, let's just read what they have to say. Here is Blizzard's full statement as it currently appears on their website.

  • Black Mesa: Xen Trailer Revealed, Release Almost a Year Away

    Black Mesa: Xen Trailer Revealed, Release Almost a Year Away

    The Black Mesa team finally released a trailer for the Xen portion of their long in-development game. As you may recall, Black Mesa was "released" in a rather incomplete stage. I say "released" because even though it was added to Steam back in May 2015, it's still listed as an "Early Access" title. I also say "released" because the entire Xen portion from the original Half-Life wasn't included. But it's now 2018 and we finally have our first actual trailer for the Xen component. The good news is that the developers say Xen alone will be a roughly ...

  • Fortnite Crowned Game of the Year at 2018 Golden Joystick Awards

    Fortnite Crowned Game of the Year at 2018 Golden Joystick Awards

    The annual Golden Joystick Awards gave out their annual awards this past Friday. None other than Fortnite took home the honors of being crowned the Game of the Year for 2018. Fortnite managed to beat out the competition in a year that included God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 as part of the nominations. Ignoring the seemingly insignificant detail that Fortnite came out in 2017, the fact remains that the Golden Joystick Award winners are voted on by people like you and me. There's no committee that votes on the winners. The winners are selected by the general...

  • Sunset Overdrive is Now Available on PC

    Sunset Overdrive is Now Available on PC

    The PC release of Sunset Overdrive is here. Though it was never announced, we saw a few clues that it was happening in the previous weeks, including ratings by the Korean ratings board and the ESRB.

    But hey, it's here now. It's available through either the Windows 10 Store or through Steam. It is not part of the Game Pass or Play Anywhere programs. However, it is just $19.99 (USD) and it comes with all of the previously released DLCs, which probably makes the urge to double dip all the more enticing.
    In Sunset Overdrive, the year is 2027 and Sunset
