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...

  • CD Projekt RED Blacklists GMG from Receiving Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Keys

    CD Projekt RED Blacklists GMG from Receiving Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Keys

    Here's the setup for this news story:
    A few days ago, Green Man Gaming started to advertise a new promotion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The deal was 35% off of a Witcher 3 pre-order and made it the cheapest (AFAIK) deal in town for the upcoming CD Projekt RED title.

    The problem here is that GMG was never actually given any keys for the Witcher 3, at least not from CD Projekt RED. So either GMG was selling a product they didn't have yet in hopes of striking a deal with CD Projekt RED or they were pre-emptively selling keys that came from...

  • World of Warcraft Struggles to Maintain Subscribers

    World of Warcraft Struggles to Maintain Subscribers

    How's that for a clickbait headline? The official numbers for World of Warcraft just came out today from Blizzard's Q1 2015 earnings call. In reality, the subscriber based MMO is down roughly 2.9 million subscribers from Q4 2014.

    However, that still keeps the game at over 7.1 million subscribers. MMO-Champion has a nice graph of the subscriber history for WoW.

    Blizzard is still doing a-ok from WoW as far as revenues are concerned. This is due largely to increased fees in select regions and other "value added services" (micro-transactions) that are pr...

    Prison of Elders Information Revealed for Destiny: House of Wolves Expansion

    Earlier today, Bungie blew the lid off of the Prison of Elders game type coming in the House of Wolves expansion for Destiny. To put it simply, Bungie is adding in a game type that looks quite a bit like the multiplayer mode from Mass Effect 3, which isn't a bad thing at all.



    If you missed the earlier live stream on Twitch, you can watch the VOD right now. If you don't want to sit through two hours that may be annoying to your senses, you can instead watch this 13 minute long overview video from Datto.
