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.

  • Three Spirits Update Detailed for Dota 2 Plus Diretide, Crafting, Coaching, and More

    Valve gave a late night update on the Three Spirits update for Dota 2. It features three different spirits that would give Captain Planet's Planeteers a run for their money.

    The Ember Spirit, Storm Spirit, and Earth Spirit are hitting the test client already. That's just one small step away from being released to the final release client. As you might expect, these three characters have abilities that are themed around their respective area of expertise.

    Steam In-Home Streaming Beta Reigstrations are Open

    A few days a go, registrations for Steam's new In-House Streaming service kicked off. As per usual, the "registration" part of this is simply to join the new service's Steam group.

    Valve Apologizes for Lack of Dota 2 Diretide Event

    Halloween 2013 came and went without so much as a peep about the Diretide event for Dota 2 from Valve. Fans were, to put it mildly, pissed right the hell off at that.

    Today, Valve updated the Dota 2 blog with some fresh information as to why there was no Diretide and offers up an apology to the fans in the process. First up, why wasn't there Diretide this year?

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Update Introduces Fake C4 Planting (November 6, 2013)

    An update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released tonight. Among the many changes, changes have been made to the way the C4 is planted in maps. It now features an audible tune that everyone can hear but only the player planting will be able to hear the code typing sounds. This allows for the possibility of fake planting, just as CTs can fake diffuse.

    There are more changes to the sound design, fixes to the maps, UI, and more.
