That guy Archimedes had it right when he said he could move the world if only he had a lever long enough. Anyone that has used a pry bar knows the power of a lever, one of the six Simple Machines that explain just about everything mechanical in this world. The creators of FPS Freek
tapped into ancient mojo to craft something that, while it won't help you move the world, has the potential to vastly improve your gaming experience. The concept of a lever is simple enough, and the rules say you can decrease the force required to move an object by extending the length of the object used to apply that force. Rule of thumb: Twice the length means half the force. So, an object that required 40lbs of pressure to move with a 2' pry bar would only require 20lbs of pressure to move with a 4' pry bar. If you're wondering how this applies to FPS Freek
, remember that the analog sticks on your Xbox 360 controller are attached to a sensor that registers movement. Faster movement equals a quicker response in your game, with whatever character, object, or vehicle in your control. Fast hands win the day, but what if you could exert the same effort with greater effect? Now you're getting the picture...
The unassuming part of the FPS Freek sticks is that they show up on your doorstep looking like a matched set of shitake mushrooms. The only thing you'll need to get started is to snap these on to your controller and start playing. No special settings are required in your games, and no modding or adjustment of your controller is required. The payoff you'll see immediately in any game genre, but the response-time improvements are most apparent in FPS games where you want to spin on a dime and move targeting systems quickly and efficiently into place. Platformer, Racing, and Fighting games all will benefit from the additional speed gained by using the FPS Freek add-ons, but we agree that FPS is probably the most hand-in-glove partner for these babies.
