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...

This news comes hot on the heels of word that Modern Warfare is doing away with paid map packs and loot boxes.

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.

    The Marketing Director for Xbox France, Hugues Ouvrard, gave an interview with French publication, Le Nouvel Observateur. In it, he discusses how the Xbox One is a lot more powerful than the PlayStation 4, despite the apparent hardware shortcomings.

    PSA: Play All of RAGE for Free Until Sunday

    I'm not sure what id Software, Bethesda, or Valve are thinking here but you can play all of RAGE for free until Sunday at 1PM (PT). If you already have Steam installed, all you need to do is click this link to begin downloading the game.

    Yes, this apparently includes the single player component of the game. It's just odd that they would do this since most people are more than capable of downloading, playing, and beating the game in that time, thus removing the need to purchase it after this weekend. Huh, weird.

    Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Friends & Family Beta is Underway

    Are you a friend or a family member of a Blizzard employee? Chances are you're already enjoying the upcoming expansion for Diablo III called Reaper of Souls. In addition, Blizzard explains how you can perhaps get a chance to play the beta as it opens up to more players down the line.
    Our Friends and Family Beta is just the first step of public testing, and by the end of the year we will be moving into Closed Beta. Since our Reaper of Souls Closed Beta test will also feature all content in the expansion (again, excluding the final boss fight), invitations
