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?

Review: OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood

OlliOlli was a pleasant surprise. A year ago, the minimalist skateboarding game materialized out of nowhere, deconstructing the genre and distilling its essence down the barest essentials. It stripped away any traces of exces...more

Madden NFL 15 latest EA Vault addition

EA Access continues to prove itself worthy as Madden NFL 2015 has just been added to the current lineup of available games in the The Vault. It's a shame Sony turned down this service. Despite their concerns, it appears to be providing plenty of value -- at least it would for me.more
