Zhi the always entertaining tour guide of the FGC made some commercial spots for Mad Catz. Check them out & let me know what you think. I've left my comments.

Mad Catz has been posting these unused commercial spots from Zhi. They're pretty good.

You can't market something with out having pooping involved.

I remember when I first saw this clip & I thot Zhi felt let down that he wasn't buff enough for Kayo Police. 

The punchline in this 1 is classic.

Blinging out the EVO fightstick

By: BatRastered Aug 9, 2012 | 4 Comments

I recently purchased a limited edition EVO fightstick from MadCatz and decided to get it dual modded and blinged out with some LED buttons. Check out the results here!

Check out my new fightstick. I bought the limited EVO edition of the MadCatz PRO fightstick for the XBox 360. I'm a fan of the Pro model for it's shape and lack of screws on the top plate, but I didn't want a SFxT stick, so I jumped on that EVO stick when it went up for sale on line! Here it is before it was modded:

Fightstick Before Modding

Not a bad looking stick, I dig the clear case and clean artwork. The PS3 version looks better though with its all white buttons on the face. I can't believe MS forces the rainbow colors on the manufacturers. I wanted my new fightstick to work with both the XBox and PS3, so I had the stick modded by local Vegas pro Vicko, check out his site at VickoMods.com. He also talked me into getting a fancy LED board. Well, at the very least I wanted to get rid of those rainbow buttons and have them all the same color, so might as well replace them with the clear buttons. But, yeah let's do the LED too! The stick works great on both systems now, no switches either, it auto-detects and just works!

Here's some of the circuitry under construction:

After the stick was finished (unpowered) note the new wiring:
After modding, unlit
 
And finally all lit up:

As an extra bonus, check out this video of the stick in action:
 
Yeah, it's pretty badass, there are dozens of effects you can program into it, I've only played with half of them.
 
I highly recommend getting your stick dual modded... at $80 done by a professional, you can't go wrong. Way cheaper than buying a second stick and tons more convenient too! The LED mod is totally unnecessary, but if you can swing it, it will certainly make your fightstick stand out. Of course, you could accomplish that with some custom artwork too for a lot cheaper if that's your thing.
