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...

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.

    Xbox, invade my privacy.

    According to multiple sources speaking with Vice, Microsoft had hired contractors to listen to audio picked up and recorded by Xbox One consoles.

However, these contractors say that their jobs also saw them listening to the audio of multiple personal conversations in cases where the assistant was unintentionally triggered on the Xbox One.

  • SnowRunner Announced - Sequel to Mudrunner

    SnowRunner Announced - Sequel to Mudrunner

    Mud or snow: You're still going nowhere in a hurry.

    A sequel to the quirky but oddly fun game MudRunner was announced this week by Saber Interactive. The sequel switches out the mud for the snow and is appropriately called SnowRunner. It's already being called the "ultimate off-road experience" and boasts better visuals, massive maps, massive vehicles, and plenty of snowy physics interactions.

    The basic idea behind these games is that you're taking control over a bunch of trucks and vehicles. You attempt to navigate very treacherous...

    Life Skill Mastery System Coming to Black Desert Online

    The slow rollout starts on September 4.

    A new gameplay mechanic is coming soon to Black Desert Online starting on September 4. The new system is called the "Life Skill Mastery" system. This system will add in a new value to current Life contents. Life Skill Mastery will depend on a character's Life Skill Level.

    The higher your Life Skill Level, the higher your Life Skill Mastery will be. That makes sense.

    The update adds in Life Skill accessories and Gears that can be used to upgrade your Life Skill Mastery. Three grades...

    Code Vein Trailer Reveals the 'Butterfly of Delirium' Boss

    Spoiler warning.

    Another new trailer is out today for the upcoming action-RPG, Code Vein. While I'm sure many of you won't care too much about spoilers, I know some people like going into games like this almost completely blind. It's actually kind of odd that most of the trailers we've seen for the game focus on bosses. You'd think they would want these to be a surprise.

    Anyway, the latest is a trailer for the Butterfly of Delirium. This boss "proves that two heads are better than one." The wings hide jaws that can attack you at any...
