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...

  • Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Expansion Arrives July 2

    Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Expansion Arrives July 2


    The Shadowbringers expansion for Final Fantasy XIV is slated to be released on July 2. Square Enix provided this news today alongside some fresh information about the expansion.

    For instance, did you know that the Viera will be a new playable race? It's true. You may recall them as the tall, rabbit-eared race from Final Fantasy XII. There is also a new Gunbreaker job coming. Perhaps the coolest news revealed is the fact that Yoko Taro has designed a NieR themed alliance raid for the expansion. It's called YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse.

    Here is...

  • 2018 Games of the Year

    2018 Games of the Year


    A week or two ago I took you through some of the games I felt were the worst video games in 2018. There were a variety of reasons included for why those games made that list, ranging from the games just being broken to the games just being boring.

    Today, we're going in the opposite direction. Today, we are going to look at some of the best games of 2018. The list, with one exception is in no real particular order. I will try to keep it brief since this is probably already a month out of date by the time this goes live. I only include games that I played...

  • Apex Legends - A Free-to-Play Titanfall Battle Royale Game Coming Out this Monday


    This weekend's rumor of a free-to-play Titanfall branded battle royale game sure picked up traction in a hurry. It first seemed to originate from a YouTube channel with a less than stellar reputation. However, since then it seems that other sources are now coming forth to say that "yes, there is actually some merit to this rumor."

    Apparently, a free-to-play Titanfall battle royale game will be released this Monday. The release will happen on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 at the same time. It will be released alongside a small media blitz...

  • An Official Groundhog Day VR Game was Just Announced

    An Official Groundhog Day VR Game was Just Announced


    The original Groundhog Day movie came out back in 1993. It starred the always fantastic Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell. It was written and directed by Egon himself, Harold Ramis (may he rest in peace).

    The premise was simple: A weatherman (Murray) is stuck in Punxsutawney, PA doomed to repeat February 2, otherwise known as "Groundhog Day," for all eternity. It was part comedy, part depressing realizations, and part romance all rolled into a single film set in one location and on one day.

    And now here in 2019, an official spiritual...

    Cyberpunk Thriller '>observer_' Arrives on Nintendo Switch February 7


    One of my favorite games from 2017, Observer (stylized as >observer_), is coming to at least one more platform. That platform is none other than the Nintendo Switch. On February 7, the cyberpunk world of Observer will put your detective skills to the test for $29.99.

    Observer was developed by Bloober Team, the Indie team that also developed Layers of Fear, which I also greatly enjoyed. The game is already out for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 if those are your preferred platform. ...

    Ace Combat 7 Released on PC Today


    The PC release of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is finally here. It arrived a bit later than its console versions. The PC version seems to be only available through Steam. I'm just as surprised as you are.

  • A Plague Tale: Innocence Second Behind the Scenes Video Gives a History Lesson


    The second behind the scenes video for A Plague Tale: Innocence was released yesterday from Asobo Studio. The latest video gives you a little bit of a history lesson and offers up some insight for the inspiration for the game.

    The latest vide, entitled "Dark Ages," shows off how the team at Asobo explored real French villages for inspiration. Many of the villages they visited apparently...
