It's Mo the Mole versus the falling rocks! Help Mo destroy loose stones before they fall on his head by using your Novint Falcon to toss different-colored gems into the correct slots in the ceiling. You will actually be able to feel the weight of objects, as well as use a real-life tossing motion to cast items into the air. In this puzzle matching challenge, you will need both your wits and your speed in order to save Mo from a dangerous cave-in, so grab your Novint Falcon and dig in!
This game is a bit different from some of our other FPS titles, but it's perfect for any age. It's a steal for $14.95. Just make sure you give Grandma a turn!

Happy Thursday everyone! We're almost to Friday (ok, Falcon Friday)! As you probably know, it's been a very busy couple of weeks. We were at E3 last week and were really busy! Here's a sampling of what the media had to say:

Also, keep your eyes peeled when checking out IGN, Gamespy.com, Gizmodo, LifeHacker, and Valleywag. You just might see one of our ads for the Orange Box Bundle.

Everywhere you looked, there were 28+ inch monitors, water-cooled processors, and massive custom towers. We gave countless demonstrations of BF2, Haptics-Life, and Quake 4 and had a great time talking to everyone. I know for a fact that Aaron's dying to get back there!

Ladies and gentlemen START YOUR ENGINES! Chicken Hunter: Chicken a la Kart is a fun, fast paced go-kart style racing game that’s sure to get your adrenaline pumping! Meet up with some of the other characters and race in one of the five different courses in each of the two different Grand Prix races. While playing this game with the Falcon you’ll feel vehicle accelerations, collisions, the recoil of weapons, and the direction your enemy fires at you from. Chicken Hunter: Chicken a la Kart has 2 player racing ability so you can challenge your friends no matter where they are… just make sure you buckle up!
I have to say, the Chicken Hunter games are all so much fun and this one is no exception! It will cost you a cool $14.95 and it's worth every penny! You'll have so much fun! Check it out!

This afternoon we had an extra special treat when Dane Cook stopped by our booth for a demo. He's a big fan of gaming and he admitted that we "won him over." Very exciting!
Tomorrow's the last day of the show, so who knows what could happen!

We're so excited about this partnership as another AAA publisher joins the Falcon lineup! I'll be sure to post more information about E3 tonight when I get back. Until then, happy Falcon gaming!

*** Movie Spoiler Alert ***
In the movie, Dave (Eddie Murphy) is a robot ship that looks like Eddie Murphy and carries its crew to Earth on a mission to save their planet.
Inside the ship (again, disguised as a person), are many tiny people including the captain (also, Eddie Murphy - i.e. the big ship looks like its tiny captain). Towards the end of the movie, some of the crew mutinies and they sneeze the Eddie Murphy captain out. In order to save their world, they have to destroy Earth, but the captain doesn't want to by that point, and he has to get back to the ship (the robot Eddie Murphy) and take back control. He manages to get back in the ship and goes to the engine room, where he enters a code, pushes a button and a panel opens up to reveal the Novint Falcon. Eddie Murphy then grabs the Falcon and pulls it out by the handle. The camera view shifts to a view of him using the Falcon to take back control of the ship (the robot body) therefore stopping the mutinied crew and saving planet earth. Not bad for a movie debut! Nothing like saving humanity in your first big screen movie :)
Not a bad weekend for the Falcon!

The best part... the mod is FREE! Just remember you need to own a full version of Quake 4 for the mods to work. Happy Falcon gaming and enjoy your weekend!

Tiger Woods - let me say this, for some reason I am VERY good at Tiger Woods Golf. It doesn't matter what the platform is, I've got game. Playing Tiger Woods with the Falcon was awesome! Not only can you feel the impact of your club hitting the golf ball, you can even feel the weight of the golf club. If you swing the club and stop in mid-swing you can actually feel the weight of the club. And, true to life, the individual clubs have different weights. So, a driver has a different weight than a pitching wedge. Playing with the Falcon makes the game even more intuitive and it makes me unstoppable!
Battlefield 2 - this was great! Just like in HL2 and the other FPS titles, you can feel the recoil of weapons and the direction that you're being fired at from. In addition, you can feel your footsteps as you run down the hills and you can feel your character getting run over by a tank! That was crazy! I actually screamed the first time it happened because it was so realistic and that darn tank snuck up on me! Just a tip though: don't shoot the medics... I might have done that several times.
Overall, I'm really excited to see the next round of playables from our Games Group. Keep checking back for more updates as I'm headed to E3 next week and I will definitely hit up our games guys for some additional playing time on the EA titles. Until then... happy Falcon gaming!

We're really excited about this opportunity because it will allow us to bring Falcon compatibility to another 10 million people. When you combine that with our deals with EA and Valve that's a pretty big number (about 30 million). You can read more about the WoW drivers on our Web site. What do you think about the drivers?
