  • Evil Controllers: The Ultimate Gaming Controller

    Evil Controllers: The Ultimate Gaming Controller

    Evil Controllers is the industry leader of modified Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers:

    Evil Controllers is the industry leader of modified Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers: Most aftermarket modified controller companies have ignited and slowly faded from the industry in the last 5 years. Evil Controllers on the other hand has survived after creating the industry and has grown tremendously as a result of consumer feedback and word of mouth marketing.

    Evil Controllers is now here on KickStarter because Evil has the concept for the greatest Xbox 360 Controller. The improved controller is more comfortable and capable of holding a longer charge. It won't require the user to purchase AA batteries and can be charged via USB.

    The controller will continue to use Microsoft's patented technology on the inside, but with a newly designed back plate that is easy to install and comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery. The new back plate is also compatible with Play N Charge cords.

    What Makes the Back Plate Special?

    -More comfortable design. (Yet maintains the feel that you are used to.)
    -Increased battery life.
    -Saves you money as it doesn't require AA batteries.
    -Lighter weight.
    -Easy to install.

    What makes the Evil Back Plate Special is all of those reasons, but there's also an underlying message if this project succeeds. That message is -Gamers Notice.

    Gamers are smart consumers, they notice when large companies could have spent a little more money to make a better design. Gamers deserve the most comfortable experience when playing their favorite games and our back plate delivers that experience. With the Evil Back Plate you can expect well over 10 hours of straight gaming between each full charge.

    Who is Evil Controllers?

    Evil Controllers modifies official Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers to deliver enhanced enjoyment by fulfilling the requests that gamers make. These enhancements can range from game specific modifications like Rapid Fire in first person shooters or Auto Spotting your targets in Battlefield 3, to accessible gaming modifications.

    Partnered with The AbleGamers Foundation, a foundation dedicated to bringing mainstream gaming to everyone. Evil Controllers fulfills hundreds of requests for custom accessible controllers and has designed controllers for one handed veterans, children with muscular dystrophy and for quadriplegic gamers.

    When it comes to gaming controllers you don't have to look further for a more qualified expert.

    The Design: The Controller You Deserve


    Maintaining the familiar feel of the 360 controller was essential during the product mock ups. The new back plate's design includes the following features:

    -Familiar Xbox 360 Controller Ergonomic Feel
    -Reduced Weight
    -Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery. (Holds over 10 hours of game time.)
    -Kill Switch (To disable your controller if it gets turned on by accident.)
    -Air flow Vents (To ensure your battery lasts a lifetime.)
    -6 ft mini USB Cable (To charge your controller.)
    -Maintains Play N' Charge Compatibility (Charge with a Play n' Charge cord.)

    What do you get?

    You receive a brand new controller that has a superior design to what is currently available. If you love your current controller or just purchased a brand new controller and aren't quite ready to invest in an entirely new controller, then you can still pledge to pre-order our back plate DIY Kit. The DIY Kit will not require soldering and will have an easy installation. Simply unscrew the original back plate off of your controller and screw on the new one with the lithium ion battery laid into place.

    What you get will be dependent on how much you pledge, but once the project is backed and our pledge rewards have been distributed to all of the pledgers we plan to offer the back plate in 2 different ways.

    Method 1 will include a back plate pre-installed on a brand new Microsoft Controller packed with a six foot USB cable that can be plugged into your Xbox or PC/Mac for easy charging.

    Method 2 will include the back plate, a T8 Security Tool, the six foot USB cable, the Lithium Ion Battery and a set of instruction to help you install the Evil Back Plate on to your own controller without needing to purchase a brand new controller.

    Why KickStarter?

    Without Kickstarter, this product could be left to the way side. With all new consoles potentially being released in the next few years this becomes a concept that needs to be proven before it gets released. Depending on the number of pledges and essentially the number of pre-orders we receive will determine whether this is a venture worth pursuing. With new consoles on the way, this is a project that Evil Controllers can't afford to lose money on. The transition to new hardware is just around the corner. So we need your help!

    We believe the Evil Back Plate is a piece of gaming hardware that each Xbox 360 household will want to have in their home and by offering gamers the opportunity to get on board via KickStarter the louder the message will be to the larger companies. These companies are about to sign off on the designs for their next gen hardware. Let's make sure they have gamers in mind.

    So what's the schedule after a successful campaign?

    Week 1:Once Funds have been dispersed (2-3 weeks after Campaign) 
    Send out thank-yous to all of our pledgers. Give our manufacturers the 'okay' to begin production. (Production will take 3-4 weeks)

    Week 2:Begin devising marketing material and instructional information. Send out pledge rewards that don't include a pre-order.

    Week 3:Release marketing materials, press materials and create buzz for the product's official release.

    Week 4 and 5:Fulfill pre-orders.Receive feedback and feature pledgers on our facebook with their new back plates.

    Week 6 and 7:Make our back plate available to our fans onEvilControllers.com

    Reward Details

    Everyone that pledges $50 or more will be featured on our facebook page once they have submitted an appropriate picture of themselves with their new controller.

    Pledge $80 or more and you pre-order 1 Evil Controller with our Evil D-Pad, Evil Back Plate and our Evil Sticks. To follow with Kickstarter policies on 'design' projects no pledge reward will grant you more than 1 back plate pre-order, however you can still pledge more money to save big on fully custom xbox 360 controllers.

    Stretch Goals

    15,000 - Will fund the project

    25,000 - New Color Options Added: Microsoft's Red and Microsoft's Blue to match the colors of the original red and blue Xbox 360 Controllers that have been released in previous years.

    Red and Blue Evil D-Pads are currently available in these color.
    Red and Blue Evil D-Pads are currently available in these color.

    35,000 - Everyone that pre-orders will be receiving additional Evil Controllers merchandise. These goodie bags will be given out to every pledger that pre-ordered with $20 worth of Evil Controllers Merchandise. This can include: T-Shirts, Hats, Keychains, dogtags, Evil Stickers and more. By representing Evil Controllers you can also represent your contribution to the industry.

    RISKS AND CHALLENGES

    Our greatest challenge will be ensuring the design is exactly as we promise it and that the final design is exceptionally easy for anyone to install. No soldering is required and anyone will be able to install it with ease. Our current prototype can achieve everything shown in our video, but could use some additional tightening on the design to ensure easier installation. We believe this product is something that all Xbox 360 owners will want to have in their home.

    We can overcome this challenge with the experience we have. We have already designed a front plate that is easy to install on Microsoft Xbox 360 controllers and we are familiar with the processes involved with production. By securing the funds required for the project not only can we afford a full run of Evil Back Plates, but it will also indicate support and interest. This means that even if 'worst case' scenarios arise we could afford to front the payment on additional costs without necessarily hurting Evil Controllers.

    Ultimately the project is to provide gamers with the controller they should have received initially with their Xbox 360.

  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Already Releasing New Characters

    New Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Characters


    If you're strangely unsatisfied with the huge amount of characters, stages and customization options in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, you may be in for a treat.

    Namco Bandai Games, the developer behind the new Tekken Tag Tournament 2, has released a new patch for the game, which if it hasn't already, should roll out for everyone on both PS3 and Xbox 360 very shortly.

    Unlike most patches, the new 1.02 patch for Tag Tournament 2 won't be a boring bunch of code added to the game, hiding without proof of existence.

    The new patch will be adding a few new characters to TTT2, as well as new stages and custom items. The three new characters are named Miharu, Sebastian, and Slim Bob.

    Four new fighting stages have been added to the game; Odeum of Illusions in Poland, Extravagant Underground in Russia, Modern Oasis in Saudi Arabia, and Moai Excavation in Chile.

    As well as the new characters and fighting stages, there have been more customization options and items added, as well as a brand new multiplayer mode named Online World Arena. The Arena is split into different sub-regions within the world to allow players to find the best connection for their matches, and there are separate lobbies within each of the sub-regions.

    When you enter a lobby, other players in the lobby will appear and you can choose to play against others or play against random opponents. Each lobby can house up to 64 players, with each player holding a square within the lobby with their name attached below it. If you and your friends join the same online lobby it will be easy to find your friends and play battles or plan tournaments with this new game mode.

  • Halo 4 Forge Maps Revealed

    Halo 4 Info


    After the huge success of Forge World in Halo: Reach, it's only fair that forge fans receive a treatment just as rewarding in Halo 4. A recent video has been released featuring Kynon Pearson, a developer for 343 Industries, and Lori Zawada, a developer for Certain Affinities, discussing the new forge features in Halo 4.

    Although neither the forge menus nor any of the main mechanics were showcased in this video, information about new maps were. Three new maps will be included with Halo 4 upon release, which have all been designed with forge in mind.

    The first map features jagged high-rising cliffs covered in rich green grass, surrounded by a vast ocean of blue. The map has been named Ravine, and it gives off the very authentic Halo feel that was given out to players in Forge World on Halo Reach.

    The second is named Erosion. There are three major areas to build upon in Erosion, the first being a medium sized indoor space which is perfect for Griffball or other small-sized objective maps. Leading from the interior room, there are two other areas accessible within Erosion. The first is a dusty platform with lots of varied terrain and natural scenery. The third is a large cave structure that gives players lots of free space to get creative with forge pieces.

    The last forge map is placed within an asteroid belt in space and has been named Impact. There are two large asteroids within the playing space and a smaller 'bridge' of asteroids connecting them together. There is also a large empty area to build upon in the depths of space.

    Unlike Halo Reach, these levels will not be interconnected, which for some may be a bit of a letdown, as neither of the three levels are anywhere near as impressive as forge world in terms of size. However, the levels offer different atmospheres to allow creativity, and there is plenty of room to create forge works of art, whether it consists of complex race tracks or well-planned maps designed for strategic gameplay.

    Ravine, Erosion and Impact are all stunning levels, and it would be amazing if we saw some of the community creations implemented into matchmaking similarly to Halo Reach.

  • New Borderlands 2 Pirate DLC Released


    Rumored for some time now, the 'Pirate DLC' many have been expecting for Borderlands 2 has been released. Following gameplay footage of a list of new PS3 trophies leaked from Eurogamer, Gearbox has now confirmed that they will be releasing their 'Pirate DLC' this month.

    "You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water," said Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford. "It's all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there's the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on."

    The new DLC, which has been set for release on October 16th, follows the early release for the Mechromancer character just one week ago. The newest DLC will focus new gameplay on Captain Scarlett, a one eyed pirate queen. The DLC will add a new expansive desert and a bandit-filled town named Oasis.

    The downloadable content won't just add pirates to the game; it'll also add new enemies such as sand worms that hover through the desert, and a new vehicle more suitable for the harsh environment. The pirate DLC will also add a new currency called Seraph Crystals. We're not quite sure what Seraph Crystals will be able to purchase you in the game, but it's likely to be a bunch of exclusive gear available only from the new pirate DLC.

    The downloadable content will cost $9.99, or if you pre-ordered the game, you'll notice the content available as soon as it's released.

    If one of your favorite features within Borderlands 2 is the ridiculous number of guns then you're likely to enjoy our Controller Creator that gives you the opportunity to build at random numerous custom modded controllers.

  • Halo 4 Trailer

    Halo 4 Trailer

    A new Halo 4 trailer has been scheduled to air live on October 18th on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and will then be available to watch from Halo Waypoint and the Xbox YouTube channel straight after.

    The two minute long trailer has been named Scanned, and will give an "emotionally charged" back story into the mind of Halo's returning protagonist, the Master Chief.

    The trailer is being produced by a large crew of talented directors and artists with mainstream success in the media industry. David Fincher, director of popular movies such as Fight Club and Se7en, is executive producing the project, alongside Tim Miller, lead visual effects artist for both Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World and the Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, who will be directing the title.

    Tim Miller said "The chance to tell a story that explores never-before-seen facets of Master Chief's journey is an honor. Our goal is to deliver a blockbuster, Hollywood-quality trailer that raises the bar for the award-winning legacy of live-action Halo storytelling and gets fans stoked for the return of Master Chief."

    "Halo is one of the most iconic sci-fi universes, with a depth that allows for amazingly cinematic and emotionally riveting stories."

    If we're to go by the previous high quality of other Halo launch trailers then we are in for a treat, and with legends David Fincher and Tim Miller behind the wheel, the trailer is likely to be even more special.

    Halo 4 will be released on November 6th.

  • Halo 4 Might Be the Hardest Halo Yet

    Halo 4 Gameplay Info

    Well if you've come this far through the Halo series, you may be in for a surprise: The Halo 4 campaign is not for the weak hearted.

    Frank O' Connor, development director of 343 Industries recently sat down at Eurogamer and played through a scene of the new Halo 4 campaign. As he played it was clear this game was going to be hard, and he was only playing it on normal difficulty.

    When I played Halo Reach on Legendary for the first time, it hit me how much Bungie had managed to improve the AI of the covenant, and this was one of the main reasons it was such a challenge. In Halo 4, AI has been improved drastically, and you'll be very lucky if you can manage to find a hiding spot behind a rock for a quick breather, because once Masterchief's enemies start to fire, they won't stop till the chief is dead, or till you return fire and take them out.

    Frank O' Connor has said that the new Halo campaign will be even less forgiving than it's predecessors, and each difficulty level has had a one-up; normal difficulty will be like heroic difficulty in previous games, heroic will be like legendary, and legendary will be the ultimate challenge of skill and prowess.

    Hopefully we'll see a bunch of skulls and terminals in-game, and maybe some extra collectibles too, because if we do, Halo 4's campaign will probably be the hugest campaign yet in terms of replay-ability.

    Be prepared by grabbing an advantage over the AI opponents and take advantage of our Adjustable Rapid Fire that comes packed in all, but one of our modded controllers.

  • Halo 4 Different Editions and Exclusives

    Halo 4 Editions and Exclusives

    Haven't pre-ordered Halo 4 yet? Good. Read this post to make sure you get the most out of the content within game, and help yourself save some bucks in the future too. Don't forget that subscribing to our newsletter gives you a chance to win an official Halo 4 console with official Halo 4 Controllers.

    There are three main releases for Halo 4 and for all you diehard fans, no, unfortunately there isn't a humongous legendary crate of Halo goodies like previous games, but there are plenty of extras included both in-game and out of game bundled with each edition.

    Halo 4 Standard Edition

    The Standard Edition will cost you $60, and will include just the bare backbone of the Halo 4 experience, including the full game in an average case and no extra features. Check out a few retailers though, because you could get an extra in-game reward like the Forest armor skin from Gamestop.

    Halo 4 Limited Edition

    If you're going to be playing the Halo 4 multiplayer for a long time after release, then this is probably the deal for you. The bundle, which costs $99, will be boxed in a snazzy and shiny case with UNSC symbols etched on the front and insides. The limited edition copy will include instant access to all 8 multiplayer Spartan specializations, early access to the first DLC maps, and 15% off all future download content. You'll also get a bundle of armor and weapon skins as well as a few documentaries, and some cool graphical content.

    Halo 4 Console

    The Halo 4 Console pack will come with a 320GB translucent Xbox and two pairs of controllers as well as the standard game. The controllers and Xbox will be skinned with highly detailed Halo themed graphics, and the Xbox will make a Hal0-like sound when turned on. Although this lacks some of the limited edition features, you'll grab yourself a wicked looking new Xbox and a pair of impressive controllers.

    Separate Controllers

    If you don't want to splash $399.99 on a new xbox, you can still get yourself separate UNSC themed controllers for $60. This allows you to get whichever edition of the game you want as well as a cool controller.

    You can definitely expect Evil to add some limited Halo 4 themed controller to our Controller Creator to help fans of the franchise make a truly custom halo 4 controller for themselves.

  • Play as the Flood in the New Halo Game

    Halo 4 Info

    The flood have become a very iconic race in the Halo series, and from every game since launch there has been at least a small reference to the parasitic species.

    It's been known for a while that we won't be seeing the flood in the Halo 4 campaign, but new gameplay reveals the ability to play as the flood creatures in the newly buffed infection game mode.

    Infection starts off with a group of players fighting against a predefined number of 'infected' players. In previous games the infected usually wielded an energy sword and had different health stats depending on the game variant. In Halo 4, when a player gets killed by the infected, the player will die and then transform into a figure of the well-known sentient plague. It's expected that the human players will start the game with shotguns, and the flood players will also have the option to use between three different armor abilities, one of which will be a thruster pack, capable of boosting the player towards other live players.

    The game mode name will be changed to flood, which won't make a significant difference, and it'll be likely to have its own matchmaking playlist like the Living Dead in Halo Reach.

    I'm interested to find out how the flood mode will play out in the new matchmaking atmosphere, and whether we'll see any flood missions in Spartan Ops.


    If you currently own an Evil Controller you can expect that our modded controller will be compatible with the newest game in the franchise in addition to Black Ops 2. Order a Stealth Adjustable v2 today to get a heads up on your opponents on Day 1.

  • Borderlands 2: Some Things You May Have Missed

    Borderlands 2

    Borderlands 2 has been out for almost two weeks now, and the amount of content within the game is unbelievable. If you've managed to get your hands on the game, I'm sure you've probably been pleasantly swamped with side quests, customization options and many other aspects of the gameplay that make it so great and immersive, but there are some features in the game that aren't so easy to spot. We're talking about Easter eggs, baby.

    Probably one of the most widely known Easter eggs in Borderlands 2 is the inclusion of an area dedicated to the popular sandbox game, Minecraft. A place called Caustic Caverns has an area sectioned off by blocks that look similar to the iconic Minecraft visuals; smash your way through them and you'll find a layer of coal and stone, which is also in the blocky Minecraft style. Keep tunneling your way through and you'll find yourself face to face with a bunch of creepers. Minecraft wearable skins for your characters.

    This isn't the only hidden gem within the games diverse atmosphere, and if you've got a good eyesight, be prepared to come across many more interesting additions such as a double rainbow, a scannable QR code and even a Facebook reference.

    If you've found any more cool features in Borderlands 2 that are otherwise unknown, share it with us in the comments.

    Like Borderlands and their bajillion guns, Evil Controllers has over a Trillion combinations available for people trying to make the perfect modded xbox 360 controller.
