As detailed in CAG Foreplay Podcast #29, CAG kPod was kind enough to donate a brand new Saitek Cyborg Evo USB Joystick and Pro Gamer Control Unit.

Listen to the show for details on how to win (or just copy the trend that you see forming of those that actually listened)! Winner will be announced on the next CAG Foreplay.

Good luck everyone and thanks again, kPod!

Here's some links to the products:

Contest entry, GO!
As you may or may not be aware, I play World of Warcraft.
I think I'd play a Flight Simulator game with these things.

Contest entry:

I think I would play a flight sim too, but the realistic ones might prove to daunting, instead I'd pick maybe Tie fighter, X-wing Alliance, or anything in that series; they're action packed and an easy learning curve.

Shiiizle boxcutter, beat me to the punch. X-wing vs. Tie-Fighter mangs and X-wing Alliance...and Nancy Drew. It's all about the old skewl "I'm gonna blow u bitches up in my advanced tie fighter".

Let's not forget the freeware FlightSim that is FlightGear. : D

And for reference, the other older game I've been playing is Commanche GOLD.

If the keys can be programed I would use the Pro Gamer Control Unit to get back in to CoH.
I also wanted to say this was my first foreplay experience and I really liked it.

I'll be honest. If I get it I'll sell it so that I could buy some books for school.

IL-2 Sturmovik, the god of combat flight sims. I'd probably just plat that all day.

people should start out with adventure games. either the classics like the King's Quest series or the newer ones like the 3D Sam & Max games. adventure games have great writing, good stories and fun puzzles to solve. adventure games got me into PC games more than anything else so it's a nice way for people to get into PC gaming without the complexity of sims/FPS games or the commitment of MMO games. ^.^

If I was new to PC gaming, the X-Wing Triliogy is the series I would need to play. Easily the best gaming experience to be had in the Star Wars universe. Tie Fighter hits a particular high note as you fight for the Empire against rebels and traitors alike.

The keys can be programmed entirely, and you can either load them as a game's 'profile', or you can set it into one of the three profiles that are activated by a position on the MODE switch. It has dedicated modes for FPS and RTS, but that's just default.

You have all those buttons (20 I think) plus the one that sits under your palm. Think of that as a shift key. Hit that and hold it while pressing another button, and it has a separate function which you can again program to a certain command.

I have a copy of IL-2 that's been gathering dust while I wait to find a proper afforadable flight stick to play it with. I believe this might fit that bill.

I would rig it to play some Counter Strike Source. Would be in tents!
I just bought Flight Sim X for my father. He'd probably get a lot of use out of it.

This set is perfect for Battlefield 2/2142. While some people claim that you can fly with mouse, the only proper way is with a joystick.

I bought a new beefy PC for "work" purposes with end of the year money. I have not played PC games since Starcraft and Quake II first came out but have been wanting to start up again. The suave joystick and control unit would be a pretty good incentive. I have no clue which games I would start with, but it would most certainly get used.

use several emulators and play different verisons of Sega's Space Harrier (and After Burner and Galaxy Force II). What old school goodness and great memories that game gave me at the old Showcase Cinimas on Bardstown Rd. back in the day. I'm sure that old sitdown machine is scrapped and the Showcase is sold, but man, the memories will last forever!

Using the joystick to play BF2 would help someone feel more in control of flying a plane or helicopter, or at least would help me feel more in control :D

I would definitely have to go for X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter (which is much better than Nancy Drew ;) ) lol using the joystick.

I have been looking for a pad though for use with WoW and other things where it would be nice to have extra keys that are not on the regular keyboard.

Thanks for keeping me up to date on new games.

I can't believe no one has mentioned the MechWarrior series. I would love to go back to those again with a solid joystick.

I think this joystick would make me a Peggle Master!!!!!

Which I would not have known about had it not been for your podcast. My wife is now hooked on the show too!! She takes notes about the games you give favorable reviews so we can check for demos and see if its something we would like.
If its free, its for me!!

would enable me the guts to actually play IL-2 Sturmovik. I have been to daunted to play without the proper equipment. Shame really, I could see falling in love.
