So I was looking around on the internet when I came across a cool site that sells loads of random crap and junk and some really awesome crap and junk Link
While looking through their list (I'm quite into more realistic simulation) I saw something I'd only ever heard about prototypes for in the past and hadn't realised they'd made them mainstream marketed products (I know, I know, they've been on the market for a while now)
But either way, I decided to buy myself one of THESELink
Will hopefully arrive on monday or tuesday!
Fore those who havn't scrolled down or didn't look and want to know, it's compatible with the following games.

I've seen similar going for around the £500 mark (about $800US) before, but none this cheap, plus if comes with company guarantee, full lifetime driver support, constantly updating list of compatible games, I own a fair few games on that list, probly about 50% of them so it's not like I can only use it on one or two things either. For what it is, it's awesome and not very expensive in all honesty, theres also a helmet that you can get to go along with it too, but i like gaming without migraines XD
I reckon with that flak jacket thing, and a pair of the slip on screen goggles, and some decent surroundsound headphones, your pretty simm'ed up for whatever you feel like playing. Apparently its a 'must have' in black or camo for all the 'hardcore MW2 players' so I got mine in pink.
I did a LOT of googling before I actually coughed out the money, I found a thread for a big hardman toughguy lookin bloke who said playing MW2 is intense and after a while it actually does start to hurt, and depending how long you play can leave you very tender and sore.
It has a lot of functions and can simulate anything from a soft touch to a full 5PSI (the jackets safety limit) of impact. It can let off just 1 or all 8 of them at once to simulate the concussive blast of explosions and nades and stuff. The list of games it works with are 'apparently' always being updated in the packages updated drivers some in, but personally im suprised the compatible games list doesn't include CSS given it's popularity.
Even still, since your characters experience a lot it surely must make crap-your-pants games like (or intended crap-your-pants games anyway) FEAR, Doom 3, Dead Space, Falllout 3 (hey, fallout is scary in some bits), Bioshock 1 & 2, etc etc etc...
Hopefully they add in support for things like CSS (even though i dont play it, lots do) Garry's Mod (though with the ammount of custom content that one will be a beeeetch) and stuff like the Left 4 Dead series. Just seems like such an awesome toy for just over £100, my Logitech G25 race wheel with pedals and 6 speed shifter cost £200, but the force feedback on that biatch is so bad it's sprained my wrist 3 times.
Either way, once it arrives I shal give y'all a nice in-depth review of my gaming experience with it, hopefully on a few different games. Will most likely try Doom 3, Borderlands, Half Life, Bioshock etc
I have about half the games on the list, if not slightly over maybe? I dont have anywhere near all of em though.
And lets face it guys and girls, this is a trainer site, we're unlimited members because we use traines on games, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get utterly owned by the thing especially at first. I think i'll be doing less standing still with god mode on, and more running around like a tard (with god mode on, of course).
