GameCube Chainsaw Controller

GameCube Chainsaw Controller
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 :)
