If they're really calling it the DeathAdder they should try to make it a little more brutal. All black is a decent start, but how about a few spikes or blades sticking out or something, that would be brutal.
$60 dollars for a mouse seems a little excesive to me, maybe that's the point though. Anyone play using a gaming mouse? Is their truly a noticible difference? Is it only on certain types of games? Or are people just paying to have a cooler looking mouse?
Yes gaming mice especially by them are worth the $60+, I have the Lachesis Phantom white laser mouse and is very accurate noticeably so over regular mice. I live by Razer mice!
Resin:how about a few spikes or blades sticking out or something, that would be brutal.
Yeah! Or maybe a "Diabetic Death Adder" series that has spikes that cut you and then it does a blood sugar test on you to see if you're really gonna kick the bucket soon! But it LIES to you to get you to keep playing!
Wheee! (it could come with an electronic little man on your shoulder that tells you to "just ignore that feeling that you're about to collapse into a coma because you're about to frag that guy!!")
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Your right on this one dave... i always have a laugh with my friends who buy some of the gaming mice... "did you increase your apm by adding death"
i know it doesnt sound funny on this post... but say it in a very sarcastic humourous way, its always fun haha.
I had a lachesis mouse... great device. Had to sell it to my friend... the blue light at night time just annoyed the hell out of me when watching movies in the dark and such.
Realneil... i actually laughed at that comment hahah, though thats not a bad idea. A health monitor attached to your mouse. senses your heart beat, blood pressure, change in hormones? OR those crazy gamers who play for days at a time with a diet consisting of mountain dew and cheetos, a "med-mouse' can constant check something or the other.
The data collected can co-relate specific time-points in the game. For example, heart-rate spiked during the *** scene from Mass Effect?? hahaha
just a thought!
There's a bit of extra humour in their BoomSlang name for me - in Afrikaans (my first language), it literally means TreeSnake. You'd pronounce it something like BwimSlung. But it's a pretty funny word in English.
Even considering the current decline in the value of the US dollar, 60USD is still a lot of cheese for a mouse !...
when I see the name DeathAdder I can't help bu think of Monty Python's Flying Circus The Black Adder sketch
I dunno why that happens ... have a Razer Imperator Mouse.. another name that just rolls of the tongue
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
