Hori is making a proper d-pad for the Switch Joy-Con

If you're like me and play the Nintendo Switch in handheld mode far more than you do in docked -- that face button style of d-pad isn't exactly great for 2D platforming and fighting games. Honestly, when the Switch was first showcased, I wa...

Review: Retro-Bit NES Power Stick

Review: Playbudz Grip Extenders

Official controllers come in one shape, and one size. Most of us either aren't bothered by the fact, or have learned to work around it over the years. Being in the former camp, I've never really considered the need to help extend the grip o...

Look for these two new DualShock 4 colors in March

I'll admit it: I'm a total sucker for alternate controller colors. Not to the point where I unnecessarily stock up on gamepads to "collect" them -- that'd get way too expensive even with just one console -- but if I'm in need of a replaceme...

Sony patent suggests new PlayStation VR controller

One of the biggest pitfalls holding back PlayStation VR is its reliance on PlayStation Move controllers. They usually get the job done, but getting them to consistently track your movement is a struggle. I've learned to live with their limi...

The Ouya is back, in Switch controller form

When it comes to the Ouya, all I can think about is that horrendous, embarrassing "60 BUCKS?!" commercial. Not all of the work that went into its Kickstarter, its promises, the several good exclusives in its early days -- but that damn mark...

This special Sea of Thieves Xbox controller is the best loot

Controllers: Sometimes they're ugly. But, sometimes they're the opposite of ugly. Sometimes they're spectacular nods to video games, with such brilliant designs that they end up as a special and impressive piece of memorabilia. In case you ...
