A Mighty Mad Catz F.L.Y 5 Flight Test! Games Computers

Add a comment Published in gorilla rigs, mad catz, Gaming Gear, F.L.Y 5, Joystick and Flight Stick on 26 May 2015, 13:56 by Ben Edit post

This May we've got an awesome Mad Catz Grand Prize Pack up for grabs with our Gorilla Gaming Rigs and we thought we had better give the F.L.Y 5 Joystick and Throttle setup a quick flight test just to make sure it's ready for some hard core PC gaming though out the coming winter!

We decided to put the joystick through its paces with two of the hottest space sims, Elite Dangerous (rumor has it this is coming to Xbox) and Star Citizen. Though Star Citizen isn't quite a finished game yet if you back this kickstarter gone crazy you'll get some pretty cool early access content :)

First up – Star Citizen! A quick race should be perfect to see how the joystick handles itself with the quick, twitchy movements required in a good old fashioned upper atmosphere high speed race through a cloud city :) For this one we've got the joystick hat set to control directional boosters and afterburner set to button 11 for easy access from the throttle.

Thank you to all the monkeys who took part in our Give Away of the Elgato Smart Key, there were lots of creative answers that have given my own Smart Key a whole new life!

My favourite would have to be Mr David, who said;

Attached to my little girl. She likes playing hide & seek, but is a bit too good at hiding! (silently too)

I have a soft spot in heart for playing tricks on little kids… I imagine she will be very confused as to how you became such a good seeker all of a sudden David. Congrats! We will get your Smart Key to you some time this week. :)

Hot off the press - it's the Titanfall 1/12 Scale Stryder & Pilot Set! Collectibles

Add a comment Published in titanfall on 21 May 2015, 14:48 by Ben Edit post

Wowzers trousers… this thing is EPIC! From the good people at Three Zero comes this absolutely massive 1/12 Scale Titanfall Stryder & Pilot Action Figure Set! This is truly a collectible of massive proportions – it towers at over half a meter tall!

The Strider's torso and leg armour plates, waist area, arms, fingers and more all move in various different ways boasting over 100 points of articulation. The cockpit hatch can also be opened and closed, and the included pilot of the same scale can even be seated inside. The inside of the cockpit, torso and back thrusters all feature light-up effects with interchangeable red and blue lights.

The Strider also comes with a plasma railgun, and the ammo drum can even be detached from the weapon. The left shoulder features a missile launcher with a cover the can be opened. The included pilot is also gully articulated and is dressed in an outfit made from real fabric for a truly realistic appearance. Detailed armour parts are also included worn over the fabric, but can instead be detached is you desire. The pilot also carries a CAR101 weapon.

Of course, a collectible of this magnitude is bound to sell out long before it lands, so if you don't want to be left hanging, strap in and pre-order your Titanfall Stryder Figure now!
