Mind Blown

So after the XCOM update went through yesterday I noticed something. My Alienware laptop keys change color based on what is going on during the game. Alerts turn it yellow, Ally turn changes blue, and alien turn changes to red. Totally unexpected and doesn't do anything for gameplay, but I think its amazing. Made my XCOM day.

That's super gimmicky but totally awesome. The DBOX of laptop gaming.

I'd really like to see AmBx support now.

My desktop keyboard rotates through colors, I wonder if this will work for me too.

It's a program called AlienFX. I remember when I first saw it used in other games. I know City of Heroes and Payday: The Hiest used it.
