controller

Interesting idea, but I think it will make gameplay more difficult.  Skip to 1:30 to see it in use:

As cool as it would be to hold a realistic looking rifle in front of your TV, use a scope, grenade launcher etc.. I think it would only slow you down.  If you want to hold a rifle in your hands and play an FPS I think it’s more suited for the 360 degree Battlefield 3 Simulator I posted about a while back.

Engadget reports this controller will be available soon and is targeted to cost $89 USD.

Thoughts? Many of you gamer/gun lovers throwing money at the screen right now?

Episode 1 – Mission: Sharpshooter – Identify hidden target and use M21 sniper rifle to do a head shot… fastest time wins:

Shooting (or attempting to) at 40 yards…  Interesting concept though, the kids teach the combat vets how to play video games and the combat vets teach the kids how to shoot.

I think some of the kids were genuinely surprised that their L33t GaMing SkiLlz didn’t translate into them being tier 1 operators with real weapons.

I like how the gold deagle brand deagle is the “starter” pistol. haha

Episode 2: MOH Warfighter Campaign Mode:

This episode is really boring.

If you missed my post on the entire series you can check it out over at FPS Derp Battle – Medal Of Honor Warfighter and watch the trailer.

Thoughts? Are you going to watch the rest of the episodes?

Pinning the greatest foreveralone FPS derps against one another in epic on and off screen competitions:

The greatest tag line I can think of would be “The only game these guys have… is onscreen”.

Isn’t FPSrussia’s 15 minutes up yet?  The guy has shot every gun known to man and blew up a zillion pounds of tannerite.  Know when to quit bro.

“The Controller” (which the video is a trailer for) starts today (Sept 20th).

Medal of Honor Warfighter won’t be out until October 23rd.  If you want it in hand quick after that date though make sure to pre-order a copy on Amazon.

Thoughts?

For taking it with you when your mom tells you the snacks are ready:

What’s worse then hitting pause, setting your controller down and having someone mess up what you had going?  Nothing.

For sale over at G-Code holsters for only $15.95.

If you want to keep it retro at the same time you can strap the Nintendo Zapper Gun Kydex Holster to your opposite hip.  Note that I am not responsible when girls decide to throw themselves at you, if you decide to go this route.

Thoughts?

Predictable looking:

I despise that orb thing on the PS Move controllers. I guess it is needed for motion tracking though?

For $30 I imagine it would provide a decent amount of fun, as long as the games are alright.

It beats the pants off that stupid looking ray gun.

The stock looks like a Magpul PRS.

And try’s to sell it in an even lamer commercial:

I bet that guy really operates like a boss… he’s probably fresh back on leave from the theater. :roll:

The lame thing about this controller is that you are basically just holding an over sized bulky PS3 dualshock 3 wireless controller in the shape of a gun, with a trigger to pull to “shoot” instead of pushing a button.

If my commentary didn’t discourage you from this weak excuse for a game gun, you can pre-order it on Amazon for $65 – HERE
