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.

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...

    Buy from wherever and play together.

  • Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack - Shang Tsung Gameplay; Spawn and Others Announced

    Your soul is his!

    Mortal Kombat 11 has already bestowed upon us the best Shang Tsung in the franchise's history. A big part of this is due to the fact that they brought back Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, the actor that portrayed the shape-shifting Tsung in the original Mortal Kombat film. I'm not going to lie: Hearing his voice again and seeing his likeness as he guided me through the Krypt was a real treat.

    Now, Shang Tsung is letting loose and getting back into the swing of things. He will be one of the "new" fighters added in the first upcoming...

  • 'Next Chapter of Destiny 2' to be Revealed Next Week

    'Next Chapter of Destiny 2' to be Revealed Next Week

    Looks like more Destiny 2 is coming after Season of Opulence.

    On June 4, Bungie will kick off the Season of Opulence for Destiny 2. This was the last piece of confirmed content for the second season pass for Destiny 2, leaving the future of the game and the franchise as a bit of a mystery. What was going to come after the Season of Opulence? Would Bungie keep making content for Destiny 2 or would we see a Destiny 3 instead?

    Bungie made that future rather clear today. The studio announced that they would be revealing "the next chapter of...

    Ghostbusters: The Video Game Gets the Remaster Treatment

    Bustin bustin bustin bustin bustin.

    Saber Interactive announced an HD re-release of the action-adventure title that was a bit of a sleeper hit after it was initially released in 2009. I am of course talking about Ghostbusters: The Video Game, which was originally released on platforms such as the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, and PC. Today, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered was officially announced and will be released later this year to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the first film's release.

    The game still offers...

  • Xbox Game Pass Announced for PC

    Xbox Game Pass Announced for PC

    I guess technically it would be the 'PC Game Pass' then.

    Microsoft announced a new Game Pass today. Unlike the current Xbox Game Pass, this one is tailored specifically for the PC owners out there. Microsoft says that they have designed a Game Pass experience that specifically meets the needs of PC gamers and PC game developers.

    The Xbox Game Pass for PC, but it will give PC gamers access to a library of over 100 PC games on Windows 10. Some of the developers that are already on board with the Pass include Bethesda, Devolver Digital, SEGA, Deep...

  • Space Ops VR is Out Now

    Space Ops VR is Out Now

    A new VR co-op shooter has entered the game.

    Space Ops VR is out today from publisher Fibrum and developer Devcube Studio. The game, which is available normally for $14.99 enlists players into the Space Ops, an "elite cadre of first-responders tasked with protecting humanity in outer space." There is a launch sale price available, which knocks a hefty 25% off of the previously mentioned price.

    This one is compatible with the Vive, Oculus, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. I am going to assume that this includes all Oculus Rift branded...

  • BioWare Breaks Silence - Launches Anthem Test Server and 1.2.0 Update

    BioWare Breaks Silence - Launches Anthem Test Server and 1.2.0 Update

    It's the first new Anthem news in over a month.

    If you were to ask BioWare how games as a service (GAAS) was working out for Anthem you may be met with some anxious tugging at collars and cold sweats in response. For well over a month, the EA owned studio has been radio silent on just what in the world was going on with the game.

    May mostly came and went without so much as a peep about the big Cataclysm event that was originally intended to begin this month. In fact, there wasn't really a peep about anything else either. The studio had gone dark...
