In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the image above of this custom GameRevolution controller from ModJunkiez.com certainly speaks for itself. But try I must to produce a review on par with any initial reaction brought on by gazing upon this fine specimen. [Can I marry it? ~Ed. Nick]

Rewind to a couple of weeks ago. ModJunkiez contacted me to review a custom controller. All I did was provide a logo and ask them to show me what they’re capable of. In less than two full weeks, this, a thing of beauty, of style, of pure GameRevolution awesome, arrived at my door. Here I am now, wielding it as if it were an instrument of total domination.

And it is.

My first instinct is to be gentle with itI certainly don’t want to break it. But because it’s a review, and it’s a controller, I have to know that it’s durable and can handle long-hour gaming sessions. So I put it through a series of tests (like the dreaded Cheetos-finger test, and the sweaty palm shake). The picture below was taken after a couple hours in my hands (and after I wiped the Cheetos dust off), and it held up just fine. It seems that it will easily withstand the test of time.



For the most part, it feels exactly like a fresh out-of-the-box Xbox 360 controller. (Technically, it did come fresh out of a box and is a brand-new Xbox 360 controller, so…) The buttons and the D-pad are springy like they’re supposed to be, and the analog sticks have the right amount of resistance. If I was blindfolded, it would be difficult to pick this out from a regular controller, except for one thing: The graphic vinyl and “nano-layer” of plastic over the design give a better grip to the controller’s finish.

The production process starts off with a design template used to create the vinyl graphic. It’s the same sort of high-quality vinyl used for the side of cars and trucks. The actual application process is a highly classified trade secret. Once the controller has been carefully coated by the vinyl, that nano-layer of plastic is applied not for the sake of adding grip, but to smooth out the surface and ensure that the edges don’t peel back after repeated use. The end result is bubble- and blemish-free.



ModJunkiez offers more than just graphics to customize your controller, as you can see by the custom “GR red” D-pad and analog sticks, the white triggers and trim, and the grayscale XYAB buttons. Should you choose, you can customize your controller with everything from rapid-fire buttons, to LEDs, to illuminated thumbsticks, and everything in between. Because of the sheer variety of options available, prices do vary greatly. And you can have your own custom-ordered controller built or purchase parts separately if you’re a do-it-yourself type.

If you were ever interested in customizing a controller to truly make it your own, ModJunkiez has an option for everyone. Even better, they’re selling this exact custom GameRevolution controller on their website, ModJunkiez.com, and part of the proceeds of every controller purchased will go to a charity that is very near and dear to my heart.
