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.

    Injustice 2 Launches May 16

    Both Ed Boon and the official Injustice 2 Twitter accounts confirmed the release date for the game.

    That date, in case you blindly clicked this without even reading the headline, is May 16, 2017. That is the release date for the Americas. The platforms? I'm going to assume that both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are safe bets.

  • Microsoft Cancels Scalebound

    Microsoft Cancels Scalebound

    Scalebound was an action RPG in development by Platinum Games for the Xbox One. I say was because Microsoft has officially cancelled the project after spending about four years in development.

    The rumors started to swirl earlier today but all doubt was removed when Microsoft issued the following statement to the public.
    "After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound. We're working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games to our fans this year, including Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, State

    Yesterday, players finally got their long-awaited close encounter with the Thargoid alien race.

    The first sighting came from Xbox One player DP Sayre. The below video is a third-party's upload of DP Sayre's video but done through YouTube (for easier embedding). ...

  • Daybreak to Close Landmark Just Six Months After Launch

    Daybreak to Close Landmark Just Six Months After Launch

    The sandbox building title, Landmark, which was slated to serve as the building blocks (almost literally) for the now cancelled EverQuest Next, will itself close next month. If you followed and understood that verbal diarrhea of a sentence, you're a better person than I.

    Yes, Landmark will close down on February 21, roughly six months after it was "launched." The voxel building sandbox title has been in development limbo for numerous months now after the fate of EverQuest Next was decided last March.
