Mad Catz bringing new 'Brawl' Stick/Pad for WWE All Stars

Here's something you probably never expected! Yes, Mad Catz and THQ have teamed up to release a special Arcade BrawlStick and BrawlPad for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The new WWE All Stars plays a lot more like an arcade fighter and Mad Catz felt their special brand of controllers would be a perfect fit for the new wrestling game.

The BrawlStick will be going for $79.99 and offers 30mm quick connect actions buttons. The BrawlPad features enlarged circular 8-way floating D-Pad and a classic arcade-style six-button layout. The PlayStation 3 version of the BrawlPad will also come as a wireless controller whereas the Xbox 360 version will be wired. Both versions will go for $39.99.

I got to handle both of these new Brawl controllers and they both felt pretty nice. Yes, that's not saying much but I'm not really a fighting gamer so I can't comment on how these feel in comparison to the Street Fighter IV ones. I can tell you that the BrawlStick wasn't designed to be customizable like the TE Street Fighter sticks, but you can still mod them if you really wanted to. Mad Catz also told me that they've put their "reputation on the line" with these next sticks and are backed with a five year warranty.

It'll be really interesting to see if the wrestling crowd even bothers adopting these special controllers. I think that the wrestling audience is on the opposite side of the spectrum when it comes to the fighting crowd in videogames. The key is the tournament crowd. They're the guys that want these specialty controllers the most in the first place and I'd be really surprised to see something like All Stars become part of EVO and the likes. What's your take?

I didn't know I needed Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball in my life

I never got much into my high school's favorite rainy-day activity, dodgeball, but it was fun to half participate in, half watch. Our gym teacher would roll out carts full of fluffy, foamy, definitely-not-rubber balls and ab...more

MLB 15 The Show gets bat-grain 10th anniversary edition

Ok, that's a pretty sweet steelbook case. And Canada getting the Blue Jays' Russel Martin on the case is a nice touch. The rest of this package is a little more troubling. First, the 10th anniversary is only offered for PS4. ...more
