Any news for good 10+ button mice coming? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Oh, I don't have experience with the G13 yet. I just opened the box a few hours ago and fiddled around with the settings. It seems great, and really the only way I'd be able to play a FPS on a PC (which I've never done before).

I'll be upgrading to a Sandy Bridge most likely next month so I'll get to test it more then. I currently have a nearly 5 year old Core 2 6600 + 128MB Radeon 1600 lol.

I played BC1 for over a year on the 360, and BC2 on PS3 for a few months before I sold it. I don't want to toot my own horn but I was pretty decent at it. In BC2 I had about a 2.9 KD playing 50% assault (god I LOOOOVED the AN94 with iron sights) and 50% recon (I was a GOL man). Although I did play like a wuss and did the opposite of what a productive player should have done (I played recon on attack and assault on defense). But I figure if I did that well on a crappy console controller, I should be able to do as well or better on PC.

It's the only FPS I've ever loved to play and can't wait to try my hand in PC FPS. The only PC gaming I've ever done was WoW (thank god I quit that game) but I'll probably have a huge learning curve, more so having to learn on the G13 too haha.

I just bought BC2 on Steam (they had a sale for $7) and tried it out for giggles on my machine and it pretty much laughed in my face . I had to turn the settings down to low and play on 800x600 and it was still suuuuper laggy with half the buildings clipping and tearing. But I will probably give it another go in some empty server to practice on the G13 and learning how to play on the PC overall.


But concerning the mice, I agree with all of your assessments. If the X8 or R.A.T. 9 looked like the G700 I'd get one of them in a heartbeat. I've heard horror stories about Razer support and driver/firmware problems so I'll probably steer clear of the Mamba and Naga. And the Pyra is WAY too small. If I had to pick one of the 6, it would be the G700. Shame about the battery life, and the mouse wheel seems to not have enough resistance to it (I tried it out in Best Buy a few months ago).

But yeah, I REALLY do hope something nice comes from CES2011! I'm willing to pay the price for a good mouse if one presented itself. I've had my G5 1st gen for almost 5 years now, and it's still ticking like a rock. However, if nothing comes from it by February I'll most likely settle with the G700 and stock up on rechargeable batteries.

Sorry for the essay.
