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...

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.

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...

  • Be a Robot and Climb on Plants in Grow Home

    Be a Robot and Climb on Plants in Grow Home

    Ubisoft announced Grow Home earlier today. No, it's not a pot smoker's wet dream of a game. Instead, it's a "quirky, experiential climbing game" featuring a robot and big plants. It's being made by Ubisoft Reflections, the studio that made the Destruction Derby, Driver, and The Crew franchises.




    In Grow Home, players are free to explore the strange, open world full of floating islands, majestic caves and waterfalls, all set in a beautiful and minimalist artistic style. Players take on the role of BUD (Botanical

  • New Tease from Xbox Community Manager Might Be for Call of Duty: World at War II

    The Xbox Canada Community Manager, Raj Patel, Tweeted out the following teaser image earlier today.


    The not so secret morse code translates to: "Presented by Xbox, 10am PDT, 1pm EST, May 4th 2015"

    Interesting, the red "II" does close resemble this other "leaked" image from the day prior. This image is said to be faked but the similarities between the two are unmistakable. It could just be a huge coincidence, however.


    Keep in mind that Black Ops 2 was also teased with morse code. The Call of...
