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.

  • The Call of Duty Twitter is Now Impersonating the News and That's Probably a Bad Thing

    The Call of Duty Twitter account decided to become the "Current Events Aggregate" for the time being. Undoubtedly, this is a weird social media promotion for the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and probably a new trailer. You know that and I know that, but does everyone on the Internet know that? Of course not, which is where this could become an issue.


    People tend to believe a lot of what they read on the Internet. You would think that someone at some point said, "hey, maybe this is a bad idea," but apparently not. The Ca...

  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Allegedly Includes Most of the Actual Game in Day One Patch

    There have been some reports floating around today saying that if you do not download the 7GB day one patch for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 you may find that you only have access to the tutorial and the create a park feature.

    People have suggested that the 7GB patch really isn't so much of a "patch" as it is the rest of the game. If you happen to buy the game retail and aren't connected to the internet, you're probably in for a bad time.

    Then again, you might not be better off even with the day one patch. If true, this is some real horrendous...
