Aww, I was hoping that the "one last pointless demo" was you tossing one of the handles in the microwave.  :(

Seriously though, cool video, and I VERY eagerly look forward to the D9200 review.

And yet I did not call you a shill. Like I said, that would've been nasty and uncalled for... Overly-sensitive much?

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Oh, and just for the sake of the Internet Memory Police, I have no specific beef with SlikStik. In fact, I have purchased different products 2x from them, and have never had catastrophic consequences.

IIOIOOIOO - I know what you mean by the fulcrum.  I was merely trying to expain how silly the comparison was.

 Anyway... I do think the accusation with kev is a little harsh.
 
 But... I do think that the review is definitely weighted in the wrong direction.

  I think the the Tornado spinner for instance is a great product.   Maybe the best spinner ever made... but... A lot of people here are loyal to oscarcontrols because kelsey is a good guy who goes the distance to help the community... and makes a good product line.  

 I think some people have a tendancy to weigh thier desigions/ and or Opinions  based on friendships rather than by complete rationality and or objectionality.

 I think that Kevs newest review reflects this... tho, I dont think he should be 'stoned' on the message board for it.

 Kev... I liked your spinner review... but this review is all wrong.  I think your initial first feelings were correct... loose and sloppy.  I think you need much more testing time to realize this.  Robotron isnt a good test game either... because you cant focus on a single joy.  Also, the game is more of a flowing-rolling type of game.  Try something like mortal kombat and youll have a new opinion of the thing.

sorry... but have to jump in like this...

but I think some comments are too harsh to kevsteele !!!   >:(   >:(   >:(

I am very much appreciate the comments, reviews, and site Kev has provided.... and if he thinks slikstick has a good product.... I think it is more than ok to say so on his review...

even if you don't think the metal stick is a good product... doesn't mean it is not a good product or others can't think its a good product....

let's be fair.... if you have tested it yourself and you don't like it, plz feel free to write up a review and video and sound track dissing it telling us why you don't like it....

but I don't think we have a right to dis Kev's review saying its biased.....  >:(  >:(


my $0.02 cents....

Another Brilliant mind ruined by education....  :p

IIOIOOIOO:

Let's see, you warned me about becoming a informercial guy for SlikStik. Does that not count as a synonym for "shill" ?

Before this spirals out of control (too late?), let me just say I stand by my review -- the joystick handles are just a set of stronger springs away from being excellent. As it is they are very good.

That a couple of you can imply that my review is slanted or biased when you've never even tried out the joystick handles is beyond me.

And yes, I did play more than Robotron (read the review - the written review. I do occasionally play more than Robotron  ;))

Actually I warned you AGAINST becoming a shill. It was a cautionary note, not an admonishment. The english language is a handy tool, when used correctly.

But yes, this is the end of this thread. I'd sing a song for you all, but none of you would hear it.
