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...

  • Updated Anti-Cheat Measures Allegedly Released by Valve for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    Allegedly, on December 31, updated anti-cheat methods were rolled out to various Counter-Strike: Global Offensive servers. Namely, it appears as though the servers that Valve run themselves were updated while other dedicated servers were not yet updated with this "mysterious" update.



    Those of the CS:GO section on Reddit noticed that a larger than normal number of cheaters were bitching that their undetectable cheats had gotten them banned from VAC secured servers. If this is indeed the case, Valve made no announcement of this,...

  • Total Gaming Network's Biggest Disappointments of 2013

    Total Gaming Network's Biggest Disappointments of 2013

    Here we are again, the end of another year. The end of another 365 days of game releases. We just had the added benefit this year of also enjoying the launch of a new generation of game consoles. Games announced for 2014 and beyond are already looking and sounding amazing and there is no shortage of both AAA and Indie titles to enjoy right now! When you think about it, we haven't seen a massive launch of a new generation of consoles since 2005 and 2006. 2013 was, to put it mildly, a great year for gaming. Sure, ignore all of the bad things and... No. Wait. Hold ...

  • Is The Elder Scrolls Online the Next Star Wars: The Old Republic?

    Is The Elder Scrolls Online the Next Star Wars: The Old Republic?

    Reliable industry sources have revealed that the internal cost of development for The Elder Scrolls Online has already surpassed $200 million. The last MMO to hit such lofty costs was Star Wars: The Old Republic, which reportedly cost EA from $200 million (as a low estimate) to upwards of $500 million to develop.

    We all remember how well that went for that title, don't we?

    That particular tweet has been removed, though we are unsure as to why. This is merely speculation at this point, and the facts may be that the budget is a lot le...

  • Classic Fallout Games Removed from GOG Following Interplay License Expiration

    More sad news to ring in the new year as it was revealed earlier that the old Fallout titles have been removed from sites like GOG. The reason once again is due to Interplay no longer owning the rights to the franchise once the year came to an end. All rights now belong to Bethesda, which has so far not come to any sort of agreement with GOG for distribution rights.
    Today, we bid farewell to the legendary post-apocalyptic 2D classics. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we needed to pull the three classic Fallout games, that isFallout, Fallout 2,

  • Deadpool Pulled from Steam, Xbox Live Marketplace, and PlayStation Network Following License Expiration

    It looks as though the Deadpool game may be harder to come by as of just a few hours ago tonight. It appears as though Activision's license for the franchise expired and has now been removed from all digital retailers across all platforms. A similar fate befell the 007 franchise at the end of 2012 when Activision lost the publishing rights to that franchise. If you failed to pick up Deadpool during any of the holiday sales, you can still pick it up at places like Amazon. However, it may be safe to assume that once that stock sells out, it will no longer b...

    Initial comments from the studio says that nearly everything in the offices has been lost....
