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...

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.



Despite a reduction of six months for the suspension, Blizzard is still punishing Blitzchung. The...

  • Uncharted Live-Action Fan Film with Nathan Fillion

    Uncharted Live-Action Fan Film with Nathan Fillion

    For years, fans have said, "Nathan Fillion would be the perfect actor to portray live-action Nathan Drake from Uncharted!" I mean literally years this has been said. It didn't hurt that they both somewhat sound alike and they sure as hell look alike.

    So when Nathan Fillion teased some Uncharted reveal for today, it set the fans into a little frenzy. What could it be? We already know Fillion (currently) doesn't have anything to do with the professional Uncharted film that is being worked on. But what if a fan made a film...?...

    From now until July 20th, you will get to experience the highs and somewhat less highs that are the Legend of Zelda games, courtesy of The Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018. This marathon sees a bunch of Zelda games being run all in the name of charity.

  • How One Letter Completely Broke Aliens: Colonial Marines AI

    How One Letter Completely Broke Aliens: Colonial Marines AI

    This is a little piece of interesting news I'm starting to see make the rounds this evening. About five years after its disastrous release, it has been discovered that a single letter managed to break a significant part of the A.I. for Aliens: Colonial Marines.

    The creator the highly regarded overhaul mod called TemplarGFX's Aliens Colonial Marines Overhaul, found that because a programmer misspelled the word "Tether" in an .ini file, most of the A.I. became a massively dumbed down version of what it should have been in that game. I'll let him ...

  • Resident Evil 4 HD Project Released, Giving an Old Classic a Massive Visual Boost

    The latest release of the Resident Evil 4 HD Project is available to be downloaded. Weighing in at a hefty 28.5GB, this release overhauls nearly every texture for Resident Evil 4 HD that came out for the PC a few years back. The mod was created because despite the "HD" in the game's name, the texture work by Capcom was severely lacking. Two modders, who just happened to live near the area where the original textures were sourced from, began this project nearly three and a half years ago. The duo took it upon themselves to redo the textures, effects, some lighting,...
