    This one gives me extremely mixed emotions. It looks strange. It looks like something that, if not executed perfectly, will be very bad. It looks like something that, if executed perfectly, could make the need for a kb and mouse for a lot of games a moot point....

    We'll just have to wait and see.

    Also THIS IS NOT HALF LIFE 3 AND I HATE YOU VALVE.

    ...what? Where's the macro support? Where's the 7 thumb modifier keys for storing 500+ of said macros?

    YOU CAN TAKE OUR LIVES, BUT YOU CAN NEVER TAKE OUR KEYBOARD AND MOUSE!

    When I first saw it I thought those were two big speakers.

    I can see my hand cramping after a while because of how you actually have to curve your hand in to use the touch pads.

    reading the article, they state that they are designing it to be fully hackable for modders and workshop contributers...interesting

    If you're using macros, you need to learn how to play video games, Sally.

    Macros are like enhancers.

    That...is the strangest fucking thing I've ever seen.

    Still better than the PS3 though.



    On a random side note, why does pressing tab no longer bring me to the Post Reply button? I GOTTA MOVE MY MOUSE TO REPLY NOW

    It's a new site feature. If you are willing to pay Microsoft $60 a year to be able to use your own connection to play games online, then Vault can charge you for the luxury of pressing Tab to move to the "Post Reply" button.

    No seriously, it works for me.
