Full Version: Bring the pain.

I don't know how many of you doods listen to Talk radio, but theres this little show called Coast to Coast that comes on very late at night. I usually listen to this program while mopping the floor, washing dishing or doing other shit I gotta do at work when closing up shop at night. Anyway, last night the host Ian Punnett was reading a few headlines and he mentioned something of a Pain vest. Apparently it was originally a medical vest used for diagnosing patients from home or who couldn't come to a hospital. It has been modified to let the user feel pain.

Now I really don't know what to think about this but, the first thought that came to my head was, are we really that much of a fucking masochist generation that we need to feel the pain of our characters when playing a game?

*imagines playing Wolfenstein enemy territory using this against panzerpussies*

On the flipside, I could see how this could add to the immersion of certain games. Take the call of Duty games. They tend to play out on a script and I can really see this adding immersion to the game. The vest is suppose to launch with a Call of Duty game, this November. I'm assuming Call of Duty 4 since its a pretty highly anticipated game and is due this November. Also I would assume those jip-jap pr0n games would probably start to become popular here in the states if they started using this new peripheral device.

Anyway, here's a link.

thoughts?

I remember there was something like that way back in the day. . .



It sucked, there were like a million cords coming from it, all just so it could vibrate.

I'm sure chicks would of loved it, but didn't do much for me at that age.

Contrary to popular belief, chicks do not like being punched in the tits.
