Review: SteelSeries Stratus iOS controller photo
Review: SteelSeries Stratus iOS controller
by Chris Carter

MFi controllers really have the ability to be a game changer for iOS devices. But they're in their infancy, and not only are a select amount of games supported, but they also have some limitations. So far, I've reviewed the Logitech Powershell and MOGA Ace Power -- two controllers that are wired, and only work for specific iPhone flavored devices.

Out of nowhere comes a new challenger -- the SteelSeries Stratus line for iOS, which allows for the same four trigger, dual analog control system of the Ace Power, but this time, with wireless support.

If only it were priced a tad cheaper.

Final Fantasy VI mobile video makes me feel weird

Alcohol makes the gaming industry go round

Technically alcohol makes the entire world go round. Still, it's a very big part of the gaming industry. You know all the preview events we get to attend? Open bar. Always. In fact, a couple of the games Mr. Destructoid has a...

Tomb Raider on iOS is great, but you'll want a controller

In case you haven't heard, the original Tomb Raider is available on iOS for a buck. I was trying it out yesterday, and I have to say, so long as you're using a controller option, the game works like a charm. The only han...
