What's super weird about the Novint Falcon is that Valve supports it in most of their games.

Like, Valve would literally push out patches for L4D, Portal, TF2, DoD, etc. that only contained Novint Falcon support in them.

So I'm guessing they'll be playing mostly Valve games with this thing on TNT because Valve is about the only mainstream company who supports it, other than EA with, I think, Battlefield 2.

That thing looks like if Aperture Science really existed and made this instead of the portal gun.

Can someone give me some info on Jeff's crazy, super slim knife thing?

Edit: Nevermind!

I once wrote an essay about a study on video game violence that used Dactyl Nightmare as its "violent gaming experience" control sample. Was pretty funny.

Ack! I didn't use enough soy sauce when I made my chicken fried rice just now. I want you all to know that I am going to the fridge to fetch more soy sauce and then i will resume the video. :)

Vinny's just so jovial all the time! It's like it permeates the entire room!

Sweet Jesus, that thing looks amazing!

Dactyl Nightmare! I was just thinking about that game. I remember seeing that VR game as a kid at South Street Sea Port in NYC.

So does the Falcon play like how FPS games on the Wii play where the cursor is independent to that of the screen?

So, I used to work for Novint, and my job was primarily to make add ons for new games (which, btw, are free) and create the forces for all the Valve titles. I recently left the company because of a disagreement in philosophy on how to approach the future of the device.

Since the add ons use memory reading in order to function, they need to be patched every time a game is updated. Since I left the company, no one else is doing support for this (nor do I know if they even plan to continue support). However, if you guys need help getting ANY profiles working again with the appropriate haptic feedback, for a TNT or whatever, just shoot me a PM and I'll make a patch for you and help you get them up and running. Hell, if you want me to develop new add ons for any game at all (even old ones) just let me know, and I'd be happy to do it. I still love the concept and the device, just not the people running the company.

Sara Lima spotted!

Also Drew needs to play Chivalry with this!

OH MY GOD PLAY HALF-LIFE 2 WITH THAT FUCKER

Posted by Matoyak

Oh jeeze, I have a friend who was working on integration of that into various games and software products for his college internship. I think he said they managed to get it working in a few games, and google maps. I have NO IDEA why anyone would want that last one, but hey, if anyone cares, maybe someone can search it out. Search terms would likely be related to University of Texas Arlington, the compsci program there, and internships in the area relating to that.

Classic Vinny... Priceless

When will we get another Vinny & Jeff Endurance Run?

Posted by The_Nubster

The past future is the present now, guys.

That just. . . this is just how time works, right? That's just time.

Posted by JYoung

I love how it's so overstated when Brad EMBARKS on the path to beard-dom, but Vinny can be clean shaven one week and looking like a wild man the next.

I paid like $5 to play dactyl nightmare for approximately 2 minutes in the early 90s. It was the greatest moment of my life.

Posted by GnolTac

Goddamnit Drew I fucking love you for that response.

Can someone get this to work with Reciever, that "realistic" gun game Patrick and Drew Quick Look'd?

If Jeff's first reaction to getting a gun shaped thing is to point it at Drew and pull the trigger a lot...

Posted by NekuSakuraba

That thing looks insane, haha, can't wait to see what crazy stuff they use it for.

Posted by Goblin

Oh man, I remember seeing HL2 gravity gun demos using that thing.

- You can really feel the weight of this crate-stacking action!

The Novint Falcon with singleplayer shooters is AMAZING. They're constantly adding support (free) to current games so the number of games that you can use it with are pretty decent now.
