Grandma Buys Something Stupid
Saturday she went out to find a strategy guide for Fatal Frame 2. She was stuck in an area a GameFAQs fan written guide said was a cinch to get through. She also wanted another headset adapter piece for another XBox controller for playing Live. GameStop apparently didn't have either.
So instead, she came home with this:
It's not exactly the Logitec wireless I thought she would buy, but it sure looked cool. It's a Nyko "Air Flo" Wireless PS2 controller. It came with 4 "AA" batteries and a little old-school arcade stick you could poke into the center of the directional buttons.
"The guy at the store said it was better than the Logitec one I wanted, and he says it keeps your hands cool or something."
Yes. There is a big honkin' FAN on the front of this controller that looks like it was just taken out the back of an old 486 Presario. The controller has a fan. It's wireless. It runs on batteries. Guess what happened.
It was around 2:00am Monday morning I heard her digging around for her trusty Dual Shock she stuffed away in a cabinet.
Around different electronics sites, this controller has received decent reviews. But if any of you play like Grandma, expect a different standard. Now we have a cool looking battery eater sitting on top the PS2.
