Comments

Being stuck at home can be a bummer, but if you're a fighting game fan, then there's still plenty of competition online. Street Fighter V, Mortal Kombat 11, and Tekken 7 all have vibrant, competitive communities, and if you're looking for a great fightpad to help you bring the heat, then you'll be happy to hear that Amazon has an excellent deal on one of the best. The Razer Raion PS4 fightpad is only $80, down from its regular price of $100.

The Razer Raion is equipped with a supremely satisfying D-pad and a set of face buttons that emulate those you'd find on a fight stick. It feels great knocking out combos on the Raion, whether you're holding it like a traditional controller or using your right hand in more of a typist fashion like you would on a fight stick. And of course, its wired connection ensures a latency-free experience in every match.

One of my favourite features of Razer's Raion is the ability to switch button mappings. Two switches on the bottom of the controller let you assign L3 and R3 to the shoulder buttons as well as take control of both the left and right analog sticks with the Raion's D-pad. This makes it so you don't need an extra controller for specific inputs--if you're creating/customizing a character or simply viewing models, then using the right analog stick comes in handy.

The Razer Raion is a great option for fighting game fans who prefer a traditional controller's feel and don't want to shell out the large amount of cash required for a high-quality fight stick.

There are also a lot of free games you can claim right now and keep forever if you're looking for something to play while you're at home.
