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

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.

  • CEO and Chairman of Mad Catz Resign One Day Ahead of Earnings Report

    CEO and Chairman of Mad Catz Resign One Day Ahead of Earnings Report

    This can't be a good sign that things are going well for peripheral manufacturer Mad Catz. Both the CEO, Darren Richardson, chairman Thomas Brown, and VP of Business Affairs Whitney Peterson have all parted ways from the company. This news comes just a day ahead of when Mad Catz is set to issue their latest financial report to the public.

    In 2015, the company said that they would need Rock Band 4 to become a huge success in order to stay afloat. Rock Band 4 did "ok" back in October 2015, coming in at the tenth spot for the units sold according to...

    Titanfall 2 Developer Confirms Single-Player Campaign and TV Series

    A writer on the Titanfall 2 development team confirmed to Forbes that the game will include a single-player campaign and a tie-in TV series. The writer, Jesse Stern, has credits that include Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

    It's also important to note that Titanfall 2 will not be exclusive to the Xbox platform. While there is still no confirmation that it's also coming to the PlayStation 4, it could almost be safely assumed that's what is being hinted at.

    Apple has rejected the iOS version of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth from the Apple App Store due to "violence towards, or abuse of, children." One of the game's main developers, Tyrone Rodriguez, took to Twitter today to voice his displeasure and share the notification he received from Apple.

    H1Z1 Getting Split Into Two Games, Arrives on Consoles this Summer

    H1Z1 will soon split up into two separate games. Anybody who has played the game or seen the game probably already have some idea where this is headed.

    First up is the survival game that will be called H1Z1: Just Survive. This is the open-world portion of the game that tasks you with facing off against zombies and just trying to survive with crafting and base building.

    The second game will be called H1Z1: King of the Kill. As you may expect, this game includes the PvP style games such as the super popular Battle Royale mode.
