This all sounds like shit, especially since it cost 35. To continue the sex analogy, I'd sooner pay for a hand job (or even some oral with a lesser standard of prostitute) than have that mouse.
Well hey, personally I don't live for the moment, but meh. You have to understand my position. My expenses are zero, but I make an income of around a tenner a week for doing stuff, so why not spend some of it?
Actually 35 is the cost of one and a half games, which means it should make an existing game be as good as two and a half games, which seems unlikely.
Well, no. Basically what it does it make every game you will ever play again with that mouse better. Long-term, its much better than buying one and a half games.
Using your mouse settings to make it easier to snipe or fire normally smacks to me of cheating, though :/
Why? If others don't invest in a gaming mouse, thats fine, but you can't complain when you're beaten by someone with a better one.
Interestingly enough, I almost never change the sensitivity settings anyways. I get far too bored camping while sniping so I run around and snipe while capping flags and having the higher sensitivity when you're headshotting somebody 5 feet away from you is helpful. Its also really funny, especially when people start bitching about aimbots. I can't even count how many servers I'm banned from on BF2142 for "hacking". The only servers my friends and I don't get banned from are servers with no admin ever online.
My friend used to do that, but he was too rubbish to aim properly. He'd run towards you screaming over Ventrilo, unloading about three and a quarter clips towards your general direction whilst you calmly crouch, take aim and drop him with a single shot. Cue swearing and much hilarity.

That's like saying ducking in a game to avoid getting shot is cheating. Unless they force a standardized DPI setting on people, it's not cheating.

It works much better when you're good. Another fun thing to do in BF2142 is to run around with the anti-vehicle rocket launcher and kill infantry. It sounds easy, but you have to get a direct hit which is designed to be nearly impossible. With some practice, it is so incredibly much fun, though. A few friends and I were playing around with them two days ago and I went 38 - 2 Kill/Death.

Then surely it becomes a game of who has the best mouse and not the better skill?

If I want to play a game where who has the best mouse wins; I'll play "Top Trumps: Computer Hardware Edition".

No, that's utter rubbish. A mouse doesn't make you good. It helps, sure, but I've seen many people with awesome mice fail utterly to people with ball-track mice, because they suck.

And god, you wouldnt know how long it took me to SCROLL to the reply button, I need some short of super-dooper mouse to cut that scrolling journey down by that extra thousandth of a second!

Mice rarely give any sort of edge at all in gaming. Its more a comfort and enjoyment factor than any actual change to how you play.

Ones that massage your feet when they feel sore and soak up and destroy all the sweat, and never smell.

I tend to fall of my chair when I'm dying of bordem. Interestingly enought it's happened 7 times in 4 days, all while reading this thread.

Indeed, if this does not change, I shall hold you all to ransom with Ukrainian Pop music.

Do not make me post more links to cheesy, upbeat Pop music originating from Eastern Europe. I mean, I'm that crazy I will!

Oh for gods sake make a thread on it. So, people who really don't care don't have to have all hopes of a decent conversation ruined by pictures of mouses and keyboards, and discussions/arguments about them.

I would tend to agree on that last point, the mice/keyboard thing is starting to wear out a bit...
