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...

  • Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    But will still support Linux.

    Valve is one of the big reasons why gaming on Linux has seen such a massive surge in recent years. One of the biggest pushes came not from specially created Linux builds of games, but from Proton, a fork of Wine that Valve released to allow for games to become playable on Linux that may not have native Linux support. At present, there are over 5,400 games that work through Steam on Linux thanks to Proton.

    Over the years, Valve has recommended that those looking to get into using Linux try out Ubuntu Linux. Last Friday,...

  • Valve Kicks Off Spring Cleaning Event

    Valve Kicks Off Spring Cleaning Event

    Play some old games before you buy new ones?

    Given that we already seem to know when the Steam Summer Sale will go live, it just makes sense that you should play and finish some of your back catalog first. That seems to be what Valve was thinking when they kicked off their Spring Cleaning Event today. This event rewards you for playing old games that have been sitting in your library, games you haven't played yet, and even some new, free games they're offering for the duration of this event.

    The following games are freer to play while the event...

    Valve Releases Stand-alone Steam Chat App for Mobile

    As Facebook has Messenger, Steam has Steam Chat.

    Valve just released the new Steam Chat application for both iOS and Android mobile devices. This is a new stand-alone app that allows you to have all of the features of Steam chat in a more lightweight application.

    If you're still confused, maybe this will make it a bit easier to understand. You know how there is the bloated Facebook app for mobile phones? And you know how Facebook has a private messaging system that they broke off into its own app called Messenger? Messenger allows you to chat...

  • 'DOTA Underlords' Trademarked by Valve

    'DOTA Underlords' Trademarked by Valve

    It's probably DOTA Auto Chess.

    Valve was given a new trademark this week. This trademark is for an upcoming "computer game" called DOTA Underlords. Literally nothing else is known about this title. There is speculation that it may be the name of Valve's standalone release of DOTA Auto Chess, but that's as much of a guess as anything else.

    For all we know, it could be a VR title, something to do with Artifact, or something completely unexpected....

There are also a list of games that have been updated to include support for the new Index controllers. It's an impressive bit of hardware, without a doubt, but it's one that comes at a hefty price.

  • Valve Being Sued by Native American Nation Over Skins Gambling

    Valve Being Sued by Native American Nation Over Skins Gambling


    Native American Quinault Tribal Nation members have filed a lawsuit in the state of Washington against Valve over skins gambling. The group accuses Valve of participating in "unethical, oppressive, and unscrupulous business conduct."

    The plaintiffs own and operate the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino. They argue that Valve has engaged in unfair competition with legally licensed gambling operations. Valve does not have a license to conduct gambling operations. The lawsuit argues that because Valve does not have a gambling license they are illegally facilitating gambling through the trade of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skins ...

  • European Commission Demands Valve to Stop Geo-blocking Games in EU, Valve Issues Response


    Early this morning, the European Commission (EC) issued an official "statements of objections" today towards Valve, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media, and ZeniMax. The EC claims that all of these companies are involved in anti-trust violations by placing geographic restrictions (geo-blocking/geo-locking) on the games that they sell.

    The EC says that these companies have geo-blocked Steam activation keys for games sold throughout Eastern Europe. Some of these places include Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia,...

    More Details About the Valve Index VR Headset Revealed


    It's no real secret that Valve has been working on a new in-house first-party VR headset. Images of their development units were seen back in July 2018. Just this past week, a special page on the Steam Store was discovered that makes it very clear Valve is almost ready to start selling their VR hardware to the world.

    The page on Steam tells us that their headset is called the Valve Index and that we can expect to see additional details starting May 2019. That was pretty much all we knew through the weekend. However, earlier today a few additional pages...
