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...

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.

  • Superhot VR Released on Oculus Quest

    Superhot VR Released on Oculus Quest

    Oh yeah, the Oculus Quest and Rift-S are out today too.

    The Superhot team have released an Oculus Quest version of Superhot VR today. This new release goes hand in hand with today's release of the Oculus Quest. The team is calling this release the "definitive Superhot VR experience." As an owner of the regular Rift and Superhot VR, that kind of stings a bit to hear.

    However, there is the fact that the Quest doesn't have any wires hanging off of it, nor does it need any external sensors set up. This now allows Superhot VR for the Quest...

    Four Things to Consider Before Buying a Gaming Laptop

    Gaming laptops, as the name implies, are not designed for everyday use. Most gaming laptops are going to offer more power and higher specs than what a person needs for working at an office or simply streaming videos from Netflix. When you look at the gaming laptop options that are available, it can be overwhelming. Gaming laptops are made by companies that have a stellar reputation, including Asus, MSI, HP, and Dell. Most of these companies do a great job in designing their laptops so that they are visually appealing and stuffed full of tech that gives them impressive...

    Early Access Begins for The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr

    All pre-orders can play right now.

    Though the "full" launch of the Elsweyr expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online isn't until June 4, those who pre-ordered the game can play as early as today. Specifically, those that pre-ordered on PC and Mac can play starting today. I believe those playing on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will have to keep waiting until June 4.

    This new Elsweyr expansion offers up the sandy desert areas of Elsweyr, home of the Kahjit. It's not all sun and sand though. There are grasslands to explore along with some...

    Bungie Brings Back the Nerf Gun on Fan-Favorite Destiny 2 Weapons

    Old Bungie is back.

    Around the release of the Curse of Osiris update for Destiny 2, Bungie had vowed to take a drastically different approach to how they handle community favored weapons in the game. Old Bungie would have nerfed those weapons into the ground without a second thought.

    But new Bungie? New Bungie said that they wanted to instead buff up other weapons to make them more attractive choices. This was a part of their "Go Fast Update" initiative. Specifically, here is what they said in all capital letters for some weird reason...
