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.

    EA and DICE Admit Battlefield 4 Launch was "Unacceptable"

    I know your hearts are probably stopped after reading that headline, but just take a deep breath and try to soldier on through the news story, okay? Yes, EA and DICE have now admitted that Battlefield 4's launch was "unacceptable."

    In speaking with Eurogamer, EA CEO Andrew Wilson and DICE GM Karl-Magnus Troedsson have said that the game suffered due to its ambition. (Note: This is a very, very long interview. I strongly urge you to read through the full Eurogamer article yourself in addition to the cherry-picked quotes I selected below.) Alright, l...

  • PSA: Play a 48-Hour Trial for Titanfall - Origin Game Time Program Detailed

    EA kicked off their new "Origin Game Time" program today. This program allows players to give a trial run to a game of EA's choosing for a period of 48 hours. The first game offered for this new program? Titanfall.

    From the sounds of it, despite the trial beginning this weekend, the 48-hour time period itself doesn't actually start until you launch the game for the first time. That actually sounds like an incredibly smart idea.

    Capcom Shows Off Uncapped Framerate for Dead Rising 3 PC

    While Capcom is recommending PC gamers play Dead Rising 3 at 30fps, as that is what the game is designed for, they won't stop you from uncapping the framerate if you wish. There's a worry that there will be some weird things happening if you do that. A couple of videos came out today that show what may happen if you uncap the framerate. Spoiler alert: Not much.
