    I don't know what to make of this… Boredom while taking a piss? Or is Captive Media taking the piss?

    How absolutely weird.

    :p

    Love the "rudimentary joystick"…

    If you are 66 years old and have a prostate the size of a softball:

    1) Having something to fill the time it takes to pee is a great idea

    and

    2) Unfortunately, the condition effects...how shall I say this... the strength of the stream, making the game impossible.

    Trust me people - don't get old. It bites...:(;)

    Didn't some kids from MIT do something like this awhile ago? Don't think it used infrared though - it was pressure sensors or something.

    Anyway, sounds like fun to me!

    I was born and raised in NY (until age 19) - then Boston after a stint in the Midwest.

    Never heard "wicked pissah" in NY. Of course, I'm old enough that when I was still in NY we were speaking Middle English. :rolleyes: ;)

    I read somewhere that SEGA is doing something like this in Japan. I'll try to dig it up (if I can) if you are that interested. :/

    I heard today that knocking down penguins is an optional play. :)
