well the CEO of novint posted on steamforums I thought I would forward it here.
Sweet I am in, I have always wanted one!
really cool. i would probably suck with anything other than a sniper.
and would fail even more for left-handers
damn...anyone going to enter? or rather try to enter
Ive used one before but without the gun attachment.
We had it on Demo at CompUSA when it was still around...
tons of fun heh =) i could only imagine how much training that employee must have i mean...
$150 + shipping and allow infinite number to be won is risky.
I'm still skeptical. Not on whether it's better than a mouse, but on whether it is actually any more "real". Have these guys ever used a gun? Aiming a gun is not like aiming their little gadget (the axes of movement).
i think they're trying to imitate as closely as possible, and not have it be 'ultra' realistic.
(my 12ga can take your arm off if you're not careful)
i wonder if we could get a discount on one to use as a contest prize
Never hurt to ask!
go win a couple and tada!
Well what I'm getting at is, when using a real weapon the pivot point is behind the handle (wrist/shoulder), with this thing, it's beyond your hand... basically strikes me as a "lolwut"
I'm probably not good enough, and playing on a US server will probably put me at a disadvantage. I'll just buy one on the internet.(want moar gadgets kekekekekeke)
You can get an accessory in the shape of a gun where you use the trigger to fire.
I bought one. it is coming today. Will report back.
send me one at firstname.lastname@example.org
ew eGO servers
do the rules involve no swearing or any of that 'mature' garbage that they have to make this game 'family friendly'?
No game rated M should have Family Friendly servers
I hate the term
CompUSA was where I tried one too. Honestly, I was really impressed with how it felt and especially enjoyed the force-feedback. Feeling your gun kick back is kind of cool. But I also had doubts about its practicality as a gaming device... unless you designed games specifically for the device.
I'll be watching to see how these contests play out. Secretly I want a Falcon, I just don't think it'll justify its price, and I'd love to see better applications for it than making games feel a little cooler (like using it in 3D software packages, Photoshop, Mudbox, etc.)
Not if it's a hyper-realistic mounted-turret game!
