I don't know about this, I play a mage and I fear the pneumatics will punch my heart out when my mage suffers a critical hit! :P

The peak of stupidity has finally been reached, really i would have bet against this sort of thing actually happening.

But for the ignorant creators of this assnine piece of equipment why not go one better and use electrical shock or place small knives in those compression cells, i am certainly aware they have considered it, just waiting for that right moment? maybe when the rest of the planet is as ignorantly insane as the people making these?

Its not so much the creators that are idiots as it is the customers. They're only producing a product that they think will sell, thay don't really havto like what it is.

There was something like this in the days of the SNES, right? I think it was promoted towards Mortal Kombat, lol.

Why on earth would I deliberately inflict pain on myself? That's one bit of realism I can do without, thanks.

Seriously... i doubt this will actually hurt... it will probably be more like "pressure".... still kinda pointless unless it is directional.. if i felt it in the back when i was getting hit from behind then this might actually have some value.

Wonder how it would be to tank wearing this thing... :-)

And minor upgrade suggestion for truly HARDCORE-players - replace air pressure with electric shocks! :-)

Calm down WoWfags. This vest was designed for FPS games but lots of people asked them to add code to make it compatible with WoW.

Personally I think you'd have to be pretty retarded to use a vest like this with a game as mind-numbing as WoW.

Call me stupid all you like, but I would never take this thing off.

Now I could go on and on about things like immersion other nonsense like that, but when it comes down to it, I'm just the kind of person that would enjoy this sort of thing.

But really though, air pressure? That's just sad. Gimme some electricity.
