    Month or so ago now but it was doing my head in, had one replacement and with or without software would freeze and send me right have to unplug and back in. Sometimes be fine for ages sometimes just freeze while typing.
    Was having a bad day anyway and twice in same game of CoD and i lost it and smahed it over my knee, was like snapping a ryvita :laugh:
    Binned and Old MS 6000 out and 24/15 in nxt game which was decent for me, Felt better :)

    i Loved it for lit keys but really still a piece of ****, and flimsy :rotfl:
    Anyone ever smashed anything in anger?

    I've very nearly lost many joypads thanks to FIFA but never actually done it, i tend to walk away, grab a cig and that relaxes me enough to spare my peripherals.

    My last wireless mouse took a flying lesson which bent the right mouse button and managed to make the battery leak all over the insides. :(

    My Nintendo 64 controllers took a beating, all thanks to Diddy Kong Racing.

    But they're still going strong! :D

    Booted my old 26" TV off it's stand and smashed it in a kickoffathon temper in my old amiga days.

    There were about 8 of us playing a Kick Off tounament and my mate scored in the 120th minute in the world cup final to win 1-0 and I was incensed :devil:

    Those were the days....:cool:

    Smashed pads aplenty down the years. Diddy Kong Racing reverse coin tracks was a big pad smasher.

    The last time it happened though was playing Virtua Tennis 3 a few years back. Lost the Wimbledon final 7-5 after leading 5-0.....:suicide: Threw the 360 pad into the wall. Rather childish when in your mid 30's (at the time) :)

    Me and my mate was drooling over RuneScape once and because I was playing and he wasn't, he starter poking me in my side, I took it for 10 minutes and then smashed the keyboard round his face. The keyboard was strong though, too bad his face didn't snap in half.

    2 n64 pads, Diddy Kong racing also! Those reverse coin races were amazingly frustrating.

    2 PS2 pads. 1 playing extreme G3 and the other was when I lost at THPS3 :blush:

    3 keyboards, 2 counterstrike source and the other was smashed when playing mohaa.

    I suffered from huge game rage when I was a bit younger. Think I have got over it now.

    Oh yeah and 1 pair of sennheiser headphones got smashed, also thanks to counterstrike source.

    I once threw down a mouse in a fit of anger and it skidded across the keyboard and smashed a nice hole into my laptops screen.

    I wrote this before (I think) but I once threw the gamepad up in the air (360) and nutted it on it's way back down. I had a massive bruise on my forehead and it hurt like hell :blush:

    That keyboard is made of paper. Mine has just been sent off for repair. It was stuck in the cupboard and forgot i had it. It did the exact same thing and would have to unplug it.

    Razor make great mice but their other stuff especially keyboards are **** quality.

    Yeah, the "D" was getting bit sticky too (more like stiff unless pressed perfectly downwards) I did like it but yeah no idea how easy that snapped.

    Love my Deathadder tho but id never buy another Razer Keyboard.

    Actually, while we are on the subject of broken peripherals and odd bits they leave behind - does anyone have a spare "foot" for a Logitech Wave Pro keyboard?!? :)

    Mine lost (well... broke) the left one a few months ago when I mistakenly blamed it for my lack of talent while playing BF3, rage quit and slammed it. Still works fine but not very steady when tilted. :rolleyes:

    I have a small crater in my desk. I was playing mw3 on the xbox and had a rather rage inducing moment and slammed my xbox controller on the desk real hard. The controller broke in half and bits went flying. I didnt care about the controller but was gutted when i saw i had damaged my lovely desk.
    Now ive switched to pc my keyboard hides the damage. Out of sight out of mind ;)
