You could probably club somebody to death with this Russian gamepad

Here's a cheaper take on Xbox One's Elite controller

Pining for that sexy Xbox One Elite controller, but can't come up with the $150 to get it? Or maybe you just can't justify it. That's understandable; $150 is a lot of money for a controller, no matter how good it is. There's a cheaper alter...   read

This limited-edition Xbox One S is a bit much

I have no desire to get an Xbox One S -- not as a current Xbox owner and especially not with Microsoft's Project Scorpio coming down the line -- but I can't deny how sharp the system looks in white. This first limited-edition model themed a...   read

This transparent PS4 controller is a nice throwback

Sony has a new pair of variant PlayStation 4 controllers lined up for a summer release in the PAL region, and I hope they make it over to North America at some point. As a Nintendo-loving '90s kid, you know I'm all about that partially-tran...   read

Review: SteelSeries Stratus XL PC/Android controller

Before Microsoft rocked up with Games for Windows, PC controllers were like the Wild West: support was spotty, controllers were often low quality, and getting them set up involved a lot of faffing and jiggery-pokery. There was a high chance...   read

An official Pikachu gamepad for Pokken Tournament is coming soon

Pokken Tournament still get some play in my house, and really turned out to be a fun little fighting game. It's a bummer that the new good gamepad can't be used for anything else, but for those of you that live and die by Pokken, you'l...   read

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

Review: Pokken Controller

Review: Hyperkin ProCube controller

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

I think the Arland trilogys on sale on Vita currently and people have been promoting it a bit on here, so why not give you some more reason to consider it? Those games are lovely and so are their soundtracks!
