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.

  • Yogscast Allegedly Scamming Yogventure Kickstarter Backers

    Yogscast Allegedly Scamming Yogventure Kickstarter Backers

    Despite the success of the Kickstarter campaign in May 2012 for Yogventures, the Yogscast has revealed that the project is dead. In addition, Lewis Brindley (Xephos) remarks that the company is under "no obligation to do anything" despite receiving over twice their donation goal for the doomed game. Winterkewl Games was the studio that was working on the game. Of the nearly $570,000 raised on Kickstarter, Winterkewl was allotted $415,000 to use on development. $300,000 of that amount was marked for salaries for developers and artists. Of that $300,000 at...

    iG Eliminated from Dota 2's The International

    LGD has just completed a three game beat down on iG. This allows LGD to move on to the second round of matches in the The International 4's Lower Bracket for Dota 2. iG simply goes home with heavy hearts and probably heavy wallets since they still earned $517,340.

  • Na`Vi Eliminated from The International 4 by Cloud9

    Na`Vi Eliminated from The International 4 by Cloud9

    Cloud9 has just knocked out Na`Vi from The International Dota 2 Championship just moments ago. C9 took the first game, Na`Vi took the second game, but Cloud9's early push was just too much for Na`Vi to overcome in the third game.

    This means that Cloud9 will take on ViCi for the first match of round two. Before that, however, iG will be taking on LGD for the second match of the first round in today's lower bracket matches. Despite being eliminated already, Na`Vi takes home $517,115 from the prize pool. You can watch more of today's matches...

    Upcoming Xbox One Update Adds 3D Blu-ray Support Before PlayStation 4

    You would think that the company that created the media format would be all over implementing some rather basic features into their own devices. Not so as the PlayStation 4 still lacks support for 3D Blu-ray functionality from Sony. Microsoft looks to capitalize on this rather serious feature omission by adding in 3D Blu-ray support in their upcoming Xbox One system update! Yes, Microsoft is first to the line in this generation of consoles to support 3D Blu-ray playback. This new functionality is also met with a new activity feed update, new expanded friends are...

    NewBee was the team to beat today in the Upper Bracket matches for The International Dota 2 Championships. In round one, NewBee beat ViCi in three games. Evil Geniuses, triumphed over Team DK for the second match in round one after just two games. That set the stage for a NewBee vs Evil Geniuses second round where the winner would advanced immediately to the Grand Finals. It took just two hard fought battles before NewBee was declared the victor. As a result, they get to rest for the next couple of days while the Lower Bracket battles it out. Tomorrow, th...
