See Andy Serkis mimic zero gee for Squadron 42

    
55

There’s a theory out there that Andy Serkis was actually born in a full motion-capture suit as part of an educational series for expectant mothers. Whether or not this is true, you can’t deny that the man has done an awful lot of work for films by pretending to be all manner of aliens, Gollums, and King Kongs.

He’s been enlisted, so to speak, to provide the motions and animations for the always easy-to-spell Thul’Óqquray in Squadron 42. In a new video, you can see Serkis diving off of boards and chatting up Chris Roberts in between takes. He even uses a special harness to replicate the effect of zero gravity on his character.

See, believe, and be amazed that someone gets paid to do all of this (but it’s not you). It’s all there after the jump.

GoJammit well id imagine if there still in business all this time they must do decent products but only problem is when there losing money quality can go down and support can get crappy so lets hope not. There all in one modular solution the HOTAS, keyboard and mouse looks cool

Mad Catz shows off its dedicated Star Citizen HOTAS controller

looks cool but im guessing it will cost £200-250 for that one.

Oh. That’s some news to me. Well that’s cool. As long as it doesn’t turn out like Mrs. Fields buying up the Original Cookie. My favorite oatmeal raisin cookies got pushed out.

GoJammit mad catz and saitek are the same. Googled it Mad catz bought saitek in 2007.seems mad catz do the mouse and keyboard and fight sticks, and saitek branded stuff is HOTAS, joysticks, flight sim stuff but theyve had issues and laid alot of people off i think recently which made me think they welcomed CIG’s custom stick offer and were the most willing to help so they could earn some money.

Hope it doesnt collapse, they were supposed to be taking pre-orders soon but Ben said there taking them much closer to the time so i think they might be protecting us incase mad catz/saitek buckle and go down

Honestly I wish they had gone with Saitek I’ve been relatively happy with the two HOTAS I’ve gotten from them and I was even thinking of getting a new one to replace my X45. I need to find out when they are releasing or at least projecting.
I think I had a mad cats HOTAS once. I think I bought it to play Starlancer on my Dreamcast. It was good. Never beat that game.

GoJammit thats problem with the HOTAS there will only be limited runs because they cant afford to keep them a ton in stock. That would reduce the amount of money for game development.. What i think they will do is open orders for certain amounts which will be the production runs so they know they arent keeping stock in.

Saitek keyboards i know are pretty good and i havnt owned a joystick in ages but about 15 years ago i had a saitek cyborg 3D and it was pretty solid. Just depends on mad katz quality because there supposed to be based on that.  They will be expensive for what you get because small production runs usually are.  You might be best off waiting till people have received theres and comment on the quality and then get one after.

Id imagine the returns policy to be inline with normal consumer rights tbh

I have an iPhone so I will probably be doing some of that. My wife might not be opposed to me borrowing her kindle fire.
I really want to get that SC HOTAS, but I’m scared. I have a decent amount of faith that the game will come out and be good. Far iffyer on how good this stick will be. I like the concept though. And I’ll probably be getting it. I worry I will need to preorder to get one or face a lack of supplies. I suppose I should find out the return policy

GoJammit ill be running some stuff like that probably later on. just get some cheap small tablets and use roccat powergrid for fast switching of stuff. and have one in the center for the map.  ill have to think about the setup later.

Not sure whether go for the SC HOTAS as well when there available, looks cool

I promise you one of these big spenders is rocking an iPad off to the side for just that purpose. Maybe a wall mount monitor. And I am jealous. Lol.
