Buttkicker Gamer 2: Best investment ever.

Post  Josh on ze bass on Sat May 04, 2013 11:25 am

Just bought a Buttkicker Gamer 2. What is it? Think of it as an exaggerated version of your XBOX controller shaker. but for your seat. turning sub sounds into shaky vibrations. All together was about $170 but very worth it. It'll work for your xbox, pc, or whatever has a sound output. Great with headphones, too!

here's a video or two:
from hipster chode. but he does a good job of explaining it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILbhBVcsC0I

Heard of these before. I wonder how much this would help for racing. I'd like to hear how much it helped/contributed Josh.

Here, Sorta. Check out the review from Inside Sim Racing. the fellas that got me INTO the american iron series, which later turned into Forza4 Road Racing. so hey... they have good taste. right?
http://youtu.be/1VrtI-mO5us?t=21m0s hopefully it starts at the right place.

Gotta say, ya don't really know how it'll feel til you try it. Kinda bought it on a whim. Very worth it. Adds a lot of texture to games, music. Music wise: think of it as going to a loud concert. The kick drums that thump and shake your whole body, the buttkicker sorta would do that, too.

For games (non sim racing games) it's cool. For Planetside 2 it's now like a Disney ride Razz. Another game scared the poop outta me during an explosion.

For sim racin' games. well. I DON'T have iRacing yet, because I don't have a graphics card good enough yet. just a hand me down that can run older games for now. But for sim racin' games, it'll rumble at low bass sounds. even better: rumble strips. I think you'll get the idea. JUST buy it, yo. Razz

I love you Evil or Very Mad tongue tongue cat affraid flower Basketball

insidesim racing is also how I found this group Smile Yeah not sure this is in the budget right now with going back to school. I'm still learning to get the most out of my wheel! Thanks for the link!
