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...

    Much More Planned for State of Decay Franchise

    Undead Labs' Jeff Strain says that the team has some "long-term ambitions" in store for the State of Decay franchise.

    In speaking with Polygon, the founder of the company talks about their deal with Microsoft and his desire to make use of Microsoft's Azure cloud system on the Xbox One. This also includes his continued hopes of including multiplayer in future releases.
    "We have long-term ambitions for the franchise. Wherever we take this, in terms of sequels, multiplayer will be built in from the beginning. "My experience with our team an

  • Nintendo Being Sued Over Wii U Patent Dispute

    Nintendo Being Sued Over Wii U Patent Dispute

    Texas based company, Secure Axcess, has filed a lawsuit against Nintendo claiming that the company is infringing on a patent it filed in 2000 for "multiscreen personal computer display method apparatus." As you can probably already tell, the lawsuit's main focus is on the Wii U and its use of the Wii U gamepad. The lawsuit goes beyond Nintendo, however, as Secure Axcess is also targeting retailers such as GameStop, Target, and Amazon for selling the device without a "license or authorization." This isn't Nintendo's first rodeo with patent disputes. They ...

  • Sony Pictures Registers Domains for BioShock Movie

    Sony Pictures Registers Domains for BioShock Movie

    Sony Pictures was discovered to have recently registered three new domains pointing towards a BioShock movie. As with most of these cases, it could simply be an attempt to lock down the domains and may not indicate any actual film is being worked on. However, it doesn't hurt to keep that hope alive. Sony Pictures now holds the rights to BioShock-Movie.com, BioShock-Movie.net, and Bio-Shock.net. This is yet another in a long string of potential BioShock film adaptations that were either rumors, hopes of some actors, or outright cancellations. Ken Lev...

  • New 30 Minute Gameplay Video for Wolfenstein: The New Order

    New 30 Minute Gameplay Video for Wolfenstein: The New Order

    If you perhaps missed the latest Twitch stream for Wolfenstein: The New Order, then you missed out on about 30 minutes of fresh gameplay footage.

    Fret not as the gameplay footage has made its way to YouTube and can be viewed below. If you don't want to be spoiled by absolutely anything, you should probably avoid watching most, if not all, of the video.


    This gameplay footage shows off some early levels of the game, similar to what was shown recently at PAX East 2014....

  • Red Orchestra 2 Update Adds New Transports, Gametype, Map, and a New Update System

    Fans of Unreal Engine titles are already well acquainted with how terrible it is to update those games. We're talking about multiple GB updates even when something super minor is changed. It's the nature of the engine. That is, until now.

    With today's update to Red Orchestra 2, Tripwire has incorporated the "Brewing System" into the game. That means that after today's massive 8.5GB update, future updates should be significantly smaller in size, say only a few hundred MB. In addition to this very welcome addition, the update includes a new gametype,...

    Some Legitimate Elder Scrolls Online Accounts Incorrectly Banned

    Bethesda has gone on record with admitting that they made a few mistakes in a recent wave of account bans from The Elder Scrolls Online. The mass bans were carried out against alleged gold spammers, botters, and exploiters, but unfortunately a few legitimate players were caught up in that wave.
    As part of our continuing effort to combat gold spammers, botters and exploiters, we recently banned a number of accounts. After several players appealed, we were able to investigate the matter further and discovered some legitimate accounts got caught up in the

  • Garry's Mod LUA Exploit Leads to Spread of "Coughing Virus"

    Garry's Mod LUA Exploit Leads to Spread of "Coughing Virus"

    Earlier today, some malicious code started to spread through many Garry's Mod servers. This code forced a server to push a .dll file to a user's computer. This would then spam the word "cough" to friends of the affected player and also through in-game chat. It would also change the affected user's name and also append exclamation points to the front of affected servers (so as to appear first on the server browser when sorting by name). This seems to have been the extent of the damages caused by this. The following is a censored version of the post that origina...

  • Battlefield 1942 is Free on Origin... Again

    Battlefield 1942 is Free on Origin... Again

    Once again, EA is just giving away Battlefield 1942 through Origin. Last month EA gave out Dead Space as part of their new On the House program.

    This month it's Battlefield 1942 that's free, though their On the House page still lists Dead Space. So either this is a non-On the House free game and a limited time offer, or it's going to be an On the House deal, or it's a new permanent price reduction, or I have no idea what I'm talking about. No matter what, just go get the game since it's free and everybody should own this....
