My Mother's Favorite Weapon,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Limited Edition Wireless Controller (Video Game)
My parents play MW3. They are both around 50 years old. Dad is good, Mom is... I don't see how that's relevant. BACK OFF MY MOM! For a long time, part of her handicap on the game was using Dad's hand-me-down controllers that he would replace as the joysticks started to wear out. As my mother sits in the corner with an LMG doing the "spray and pray" routine, this was enough for a while. She was playing with the boys, and she was happy. As her skill started to improve, she decided she wanted a controller that was brand new, just for her, and off limits to the vices that my father passes off as hands. Because she wanted to keep it to herself it had to look distinctive, and since this was around Christmas I passed on having to come up with an original idea and got her the MW3 controller and matching headset. It's an Xbox 360 controller made by Microsoft, and it functions just like every other one on the planet. The heads of the joysticks are shaped a little different and the d-pad is the new adjustable type but as far as the mechanics of it goes there is nothing new here.
But it is SO PRETTY! Don't let the picture fool you into thinking that the skin job is "just awesome." This thing is gorgeous. If I were single and this controller were a woman I would repeatedly take it out to eat fancy seafood in public places where I could watch men and women drool alike over the awesomeness across the table from me. This controller is that pretty. The underside is black, the graphics are just on the top, and that really doesn't matter; as my mom sits in her living room redefining "low man on the totem pole," she is doing so with the sweetest looking controller made for any system I have ever seen.
