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.

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...
 

Layoffs Hit PlayStation Europe

SIEE had no prior knowledge of PS5 reveal.

A new report from VGC says that Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE) is undergoing a "restructuring" of several areas at the company, including marketing and PR. VGC says that they were informed of this unfortunate news from "people with knowledge of the situation."

As if that wasn't bad enough, VGC's report says that SIEE employees were informed about when American PlayStation directors visited SIEE in their London location. Those employees who were impacted by these layoffs...

  • Oculus Announces 'Rift S' and 'Quest' VR Headsets Releasing May 21 at $400 Each


    Oculus held their F8 event today during which they revealed two new and very different VR headsets. In comparison to the also just announced $1,000 Valve Index, these two Oculus headsets start at $400 (or $399 if you want to be specific), and that's the price for the full package on both of these.

    A major advantage with these two headsets, when compared to the Index, is the fact that they utilize inside-out tracking. That means they make use of headset mounted cameras and sensors to track your location within an environment in addition to the controller...

    Valve Index VR Headset - Releases June 28 at $1,000 for the Full Package


    VR enthusiasts and VR hopefuls, I do hope you were sitting down when you read that headline. Valve announced the full details about their upcoming virtual reality headset that they're calling the Valve Index.

    The Index now has an official release date, a full list of specifications, and even a set of confirmed prices. There are also a list of games that have been updated to include support for the new Index controllers. It's an impressive bit of hardware, without a doubt, but it's one that comes at a hefty price.

  • Anthem's Dwindling Playerbase is Causing Issues with Matchmaking

    Anthem's Dwindling Playerbase is Causing Issues with Matchmaking


    Less than a week after BioWare announced an indefinite delay of most of their Anthem roadmap comes word that its dwindling player base is having some issues with proper matchmaking. Given that BioWare hasn't set a new release date for the numerous gameplay additions and improvements, the player base seems to be dying off fast enough that it's causing issues for those that are still playing.

    According to a new report from Forbes, players are finding that they are unable to consistently find full teams for matchmaking activities. In Anthem, players can...

    A new gameplay video is out today for the Nintendo Switch version of Saints Row: The Third. The game, announced earlier this month, offers Switch owners the chance to play the game on the go. Today, the first video in a new "Memorable Moments" video series, was released.

  • Employees at Riot Games Threaten Walkout

    Employees at Riot Games Threaten Walkout


    It's been a real wild ride for Riot Games, the studio responsible for creating League of Legends. Sadly, this seems to be one ride that is far from over. Employees are now considering a walkout after Riot Games took steps to prevent employees from taking legal action against the company.

    Riot Games had moved to prevent further lawsuits against the company after multiple lawsuits were filed following Kotaku's recent investigation into the studio's sexist culture. At least two separate sources told Waypoint that employees are talking about walking out...

  • Necromancer Class Revealed for Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr

    Necromancer Class Revealed for Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr


    Bones that move on their own! Wait, that's from a different game, but the idea still stands! In the coming release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr, the dead will rise again with the new Necromancer class.

    This new class was just announced today for ESO from ZeniMax Online Studios. Fans of the Elder Scrolls lore may already know this, but Necromancy is a bit of a no-no. You either steer clear of it or you practice it in secret. When it arrives with the Elsweyr expansion on May 20, players will find out that selecting it as a class means more than...

  • Future of Fan-funded Skyrim Multiplayer Mod in Question as Dev Says They 'Don't Owe the Community Anything'


    There exists, somewhere, the shell of a Skyrim multiplayer mod called Skyrim Together. As its name indicates, this mod tries to turn the single-player Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim into a shared online experience with a group of friends or even strangers. At least, that's what the case would be if the mod was actually out. If the words of the mod's developer are anything to go on, that release may never actually happen.

    According to PCGamesN, a member of the mod team named maxgriot posted on Reddit that they "don't owe the community anything."...

  • Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes Named Madden NFL 20 Cover Athlete


    Though the Kansas City Chiefs haven't won a Super Bowl since 1970, that isn't stopping EA from having one of their best stars be the Madden NFL 20 cover athlete. I get the feeling Chiefs fans needed something to cheer about today.

    If it wasn't obvious, Madden NFL 20 was announced this evening. It will be released on August 2, 2019 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Origin. Those who have Origin Access Premier will apparently get to play it early, but I'm not seeing anything that says just how much earlier it is.

    As I alluded to,...
