Blood and Leds Make the Perfect Gears of War Controller
September 13th, 2009
If you’re going to go custom, you might as well go all the way with it–at least, that seems to be the philosophy this modder embraced for this Gears of War-inspired Xbox 360 controller. Not content simply to slap on a custom design, velocitti added the franchise’s logo and brightened up the blood-red skull with a nice LED glow.
Add a few artful paint spatters for that oh-my-god-there’s-blood-everywhere affect (hey, it’s a violent game) and this has got to be the perfect controller for Gears of War. Just hope the paint can stand up to the sweaty-handed concentration that comes with, say, Horde mode.
You’d hardly guess it from the finished product, but this was velocitti’s first controller mod! If it was me, I might stop there. The problem with coming out strong is that sometimes the sophomore effort just can’t rise above, and this one sets quite the standard.
