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.

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.

    DOOM 64 Confirmed for a November Release on Switch

    The once Nintendo 64 exclusive is coming to the Switch this November.

    DOOM 64, perhaps the least talked about Doom title, is finally ready to spend some time in the spotlight. This classic Nintendo 64 title, originally released back in 1997, has been confirmed for a release on the Nintendo Switch. Not only that, but it's out very soon, on November 22, 2019.

    Doom 64 never really saw a release outside of the N64, which is a damn shame because that was a great Doom game. It was also, perhaps, the most colorful Doom title ever released. There have...

    Deadly Premonition 2 Announced, First Deadly Premonition Out Now on Switch

    F K ... in the coffee!

    Out of nowhere came the announcement that Deadly Premonition 2 is not only real, but it's coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2020. On top of that crazy reveal is the fact that the first game, now called Deadly Premonition Origins, is available right now on the Nintendo Switch.

    Details on the second game are fairly scarce at the moment. The game was only very quickly announced during the Nintendo Direct that aired about 20 minutes ago. It does appear as though you once again play as York in the sequel. Hey, maybe Zach is there...

    NASCAR Heat 4 Launch Trailer

    It's almost time to start your engines!

    NASCAR Heat 4 will be released on September 13, 2019. Of course, this means that 704Games has gotten a tasty launch trailer out the door for you race fans to watch. On top of that, there is also a reminder about pre-orders for NASCAR Heat 4 Jeff Gordon Gold Edition. This version includes the game, three days of early access, the NASCAR Heat 4 Season Pass, and Jeff Gordon as a playable driver. I guess you don't get the option to play as Jeff without this version? Weird.

  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Announced and Partially Released Now

    You can wait a month for release or play an early release right now.

    The crazy action that is the Plants vs. Zombies franchise continues today with Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. It's essentially Garden Warfare 3 but without the name. The release date is slated for October 18, but thanks to a Founder's Edition, you can actually start playing right now on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    The Founder's Edition is a bit of an odd one. You can play now, but the game still doesn't include all of the content. EA and PopCap says that...

    Upcoming MacOS Catalina Update Will Kill All 32-bit Games

    Catalina will end support for all 32-bit apps, including games.

    When Apple rolls out their upcoming Catalina update for their MacOS, it will kill off the ability to run any 32-bit apps, including all 32-bit based games. This update was originally slated to hit Fall 2019 but was pushed back to the upcoming update to the operating system.

    Apple first announced this move to end 32-bit support back in early 2018. So while this shouldn't be too surprising for some people, it is still a cause for alarm for those who are using apps that were not updated...
