So this isn't XIM3 related, but how well do you think this would work with playing The Old Republic?  I'm using my G13 right now but it is KILLING my wrist.  It seems like it would be enough to get me through seeing as how my mouse is a Naga Epic so I've got a nice amount of buttons on that end.

I just need something more comfortable to use as I've already dropped 110 hours into TOR and I don't see any sign of slowing down besides carpal tunnel.

Totally.  Especially after playing Gears of War 3 so much.  It is borderline impossible to switch to Uncharted 3.  I don't know how so many sites gave this game a perfect review.  You feel like you're fighting the game instead of fighting the enemies on screen.

The aiming in this game is HORRIBLE!!  I was looking forward to it so much, but have barely played it because I feel terrible during shootouts.  I also play third person shooters with a controller because I never played many TPS on the PC, but this game makes you feel like a noob.

What sucks is that, so far, everything else is great in the game.  Hopefully, Naughty Dog can fix all the problems with their upcoming patch.

All I know is that I could watch Catwoman crawl around on all 4s all day.

There's nothing more enjoyable than sending a Digger under a corner to take out a camping sawed-off user.

I actually like the sawed-off but I don't use it very much in the multiplayer.  Having 2 shotguns was a smart way to change-up tactics.  Obviously, there are going to be people who only use it, but you just gotta remember: if they miss with their first shot, they are screwed.
 
I played KOTH Gears 2 last weekend and it was a Gnasher nightmare.  It wasn't even remotely fun.  I'm just glad they made it so every weapon is effective. 

The real question is: have you used the sawed-off in Horde mode yet?  There is nothing sweeter than blowing apart Boomers, Grinders, and Maulers with it.

Loving the game so far.  I hated Gears 2 multiplayer, but Gears 3 is a triumph.  It's so well balanced.  Every weapon can be countered by something else.  It's not a constant shotgun fest like 2 was.  Played 3 rounds of TDM and enjoyed every minute of it. The graphics are great and the locations are incredibly scenic.  I tried out the 3D but wasn't too happy with it(probably the monitor on my end though).

Single player is intense so far.  Still in Act 1.  Just watch out for the ladies.  AI Anya and Sam are batsh!t crazy.  They like to run right into the action...and get downed.

I loved L4D2 with the Xim3.  It played so great that I was actually able to beat the first campaign on expert with the crappy AI.  And if you've played a decent amount of L4D2, you know that the AI allies are beyond stupid.  In L4D they were competent...in L4D2 they were...aloof most of the time.

I haven't played it since we've gotten the updated smart translator but I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Just updated to add The Orange Box and Battlefield 1943 ST.  Had no trouble updating using Windows 7 Starter on my netbook.

Would love to see a ST for Call of Duty: Classic.

I just got my g13 and is there any mod i can do that does not involve taking the unit apart/sanding and all that? something i can just drop on top? Otherwise im just gonna take the unit back.

I had an extra thumbstick from a broken 360 controller that I just superglued onto the g13.  Only work I did was to make a divot on the underside of the thumbstick so it would fit better.  Haven't had any issues with it.

Thanks to my XIM3 I successfully completed Halo: Reach on Legendary solo.  I was amazed with how well the smart translator worked for game.  It truly felt like a PC experience.  I don't like Halo much(got Reach free)but XIM3 helped to make it a memorable experience.  Headshots with the DMR have never felt so good.

Exactly.  The AI Director in 2 seemed more or less broken.  You'd get into spots were the game sent 5+ Chargers at the same time and other bizarre things.  Characters were infinitely better in the original as well.

14
L4D smart translator is amazing.  I mentioned in my first impression that I beat a campaign on expert with the crappy(and I mean CRAPPY)AI companions.  It made L4D2 much more enjoyable as I thought the game was a giant step back from the original Left 4 Dead.

Ok got it, thanks mist.
