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...

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.

    Earlier today, a member of SteamDB noticed that Valve mistakenly posted what should have been a private recap of the Steam Winter Sale to the general public. Below is a pasting of that recap. It even includes a "tl;dr" at the very top for those with the shortest of attention spans.
    In short: More customers bought more games across more of the Steam catalog.

    Lambda Symbol Possibly Revealed in Apparent Valve Winter Sale ARG

    Valve might have hidden a bunch of secret clues in this latest Winter Sale of theirs. To make a super long story short, a bunch of people have been finding clues in backgrounds, web pages, and more during this latest Steam Winter Sale for 2015.

    In fact, they have gone so far as to unlock a special badge (seen below), which you can earn yourself (at least at the time of this posting). All you need to do is open up this Steam store link in Chrome, type in (without clicking anything ahead of time) the word "search", hit "enter" on your keyboard, and then input...

Valve had released a short statement on the matter, but o nly to outlets that contacted them for a statement. No mailings were sent out to users, nor was a longer statement made. Today, that longer statement was made by...

  • Valve Claims 'No Unauthorized Actions' Took Place During Today's Steam Security Issue

    Earlier today, Steam went a little nuts. Since the initial story broke, it seems as though Valve has fixed the issue that exposed full names, addresses, and phone numbers of Steam users. The issue in question was merely "caching issue" that allowed Steam users to view the account details of other Steam users.

    Valve issued a brief statement on what happened to Kotaku.
    Steam is back up and running without any known issues. As a result of a configuration change earlier today, a caching issue allowed some users to randomly see pages generated
