PSA: The Pokken controller works with Space Dave on Mac/PC

Valve's letting us design and make our own Steam Controllers

As much as I love my Steam Controller, it’s difficult to deny that, for a lot of people, the ergonomics of it are incredibly weird. The buttons are in strange places, the grips are big and chunky, and there’s a big ol&rsquo...   read

That weird ass Nintendo NX controller leak? Fake

If you approached the Hey Arnold!-head-shaped Nintendo NX controller leak with a pillar of salt, congratulations you correct, no-fun-having mother flubber. The "leak" was actually a fake drafted up for internet "lols" or what have you base...   read

Review: Pokken Controller

Nintendo's history with peripherals that only support several games is nothing new. Raise your hand if you had a massive Four Swords party with four GBAs and a GameCube! The same thing goes for the Pokkén Controller, recently re...   read

These new Xbox One controllers sure are slick

I've heard it's hard to use the Xbox One Elite Controller and go back to the system's still-good standard gamepads, but I wouldn't know. I haven't used one yet! I'm completely free to gawk at these new colors -- Copper Shadow and Dusk Shado...   read

Review: Hyperkin ProCube controller

When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use o...   read

Hyperkin's 'ProCube' controller is literally a Wii U Pro in the GameCube style

It's a shame that the official GameCube controller adapter for Wii U doesn't work for anything outside of Super Smash Bros., but Hyperkin is aiming to fix that problem with its own proprietary option. It's called the "ProCube" controller, a...   read

Make sweet, sweet, screeching music with the Steam Controller
