Ooo...Pretty!
« on: January 16, 2007, 01:47:21 PM »

This should probably go under the heading of: Something That Looks Awesome But Is In Fact Useless.



It's a Resident Evil 4 video game controller!  It features:

- Pull cord unleashes blood curdling chain saw roar
- Rumble feature for realistic chainsaw feel
- Completely redesigned with blood splattered artwork that is unique to each chainsaw
- Detachable cable that can be stored in the stand


Here are some other views:



and



Please tell me someone has one of these...

Don't have one, but after playing resident Evil 4, I'm not really sure how that controller would be practical in such an oftenly frantic game. It's still pretty cool, though. Great for freaking out my kids. Just can't see actually playing a game with one, though. Imagine playing through Mario Sunshine with that thing.

I've touched this one:
http://www.engadget.com/2004/11/13/the-resident-evil-4-chainsaw-controller-for-gamecube/

and decided it wasn't worth the money.  It's pretty big and bulky.  It was cool looking though and if I had a game room where it wouldn't be stuck in a drawer, it would look nice on display.

now...when the new Resident Evil; Umbrella Chronicles comes out, make a Wii controller that looks like that, where you swing the chainsaw around wirelessly

That is probably the coolest controller ever made.

I find this one more practical, and a little less unwieldy, while at the same time maintaining a similar amount of nerdiness.

So instead of throwing controllers into the tv, you can lunge and perry the sword into your friends or family chest!

Awesome!  I think might actually weep with nerd-joy.

Well, I now know what else I have to buy along with a Wii and the Zelda game for my son.
He is all about the Zelda. We even got him a green tunic and hat from a lady on ebay so he could run around the house dressed like Link.

Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

No, sadly it's very un official.  I'd love to have one too, but I'm not about to pay to have one custom made for me.
