Anyone recognize that game?
I'm going to take a wild guess and say either UT or Quake.
Well at least they didn't use a picture of MARIO_KART, which I think would have been worse.
I... what... is this I don't...
I am not in the know please enlighten me :<
Not sure what you're reffering to?
Mario_Kart is a 4chan map (or atleast looks like 4chan have made it). It's a stupid map made for the lulz or something.
Novint Falcon is a force feedback stylus and also they're sponsoring the comp here (with prizes!).
Or you're just empthasising their stupidity for sponsoring something they nothing about - in which I agree.
I know what mario_kart and the Falcon and all that stuff is.
I just don't know the picture everyone is referring to and facepalming at.
I do believe the picture is from a really old game, like you said: quake or UT, But it could also be a map from TFC...
Then it would make more sence!

This is why I said what I said!
omg... a mario kart server with 100% crit on... :facepalm:
Oohhh there was a picture in the OP my browser didn't want to loaad
Yes that is TFC
Ok, so one pretty poor promo pic....but....He explains why he uses mariokarts in the vid. He's a gamer, not a mapper. Yes Mario Kart sucks.....but I feel I must chip in......with the caveat that I like tech that keeps it simple - so wouldn't actually dream of using such a controller.
How exactly do people expect TF2maps.net to run comps with prizes and backing, if they only partner a specific few? I'm exasperated at how much flak I keep seeing Novint getting for daring to support such a cool comp. I'm simply impressed they've involved themselves in supporting such creativity. That's all that seems to matter to me.
Additionally, the 'cross pollination' is appealing - the more \mainstream\ gamers you can get, being aware that there is a huge active, creative, tf2 mapping commmunity out there, the more likely mappers are to encourage \the public/ to play and stay on servers, when they change to custom maps.
Agreed, they did screw up a bit which makes for lulz but I'm not about to bite off the hand that feeds me.. treats...
Companies do this all the time. Remember how Sony used PGR3 to advertise GT5P... Twice... Usually it's the advertising company who's in charge of making the website.
I don't know why people would want to use that controller anyway. It's more like an Xbox controller or something in the sense that it limits movement speed to an extent.
