If you thought that the GameCube was solely for kids, think again. This bloody chainsaw controller is specifically for the GameCube, and isn't exactly for the tykes.
I just had to laugh when I saw this in the gaming store, behind the counter. Was this really a controller? We bought one and took it home. The bloodstains are apparently unique for each controller. Oh, goodie. There's a plastic base, plus the main chainsaw unit itself. No, the blade doesn't actually move. It simply has buttons on it just like any other controller.
Once you get past the 5 minutes of novelty, you find that it's pretty annoying to use AS a controller. It's heavy. It's awkward. It's unwieldly. But of course, people really aren't using this because it's a high quality, useful controller. They're using it because it looks like a chainsaw.
We have this on a shelf now, to amuse visitors with. If this came for the XBox it would be one thing, but to put this out for the very family friendly GameCube was a little much. Can't you just imagine your little Pikmin creatures waddling around, searching for a battery, and being controlled by the blood-soaked chainsaw of doom?
Not exatly recommended, but well worth at least seeing a photo of, to wonder where our gaming world is going :)
