Have any of you cunts got one of those fishing rod controller things for a PS2? How are they? What are the games like? Are there many games you can use the controller with?

It's pretty cool. I'm not into video games, but I'm into fishing so this was pretty fun. The game I got with it could be better though. The biggest downer being that you can't actually drive the boat around and look for a good spot. You've just gotta stay in a variety of set spots and cast anywhere within the area. Also it seems to focus entirely on fishing for one type of fish (bass), with a variety of lures. I would have liked to have been able to do a bit of rock fishing, or deep sea fishing, or even hit some salt water lakes.

All in all I'd rather go fishing for real, but it's a bit of fun for those lazy days and would quite probably be enhanced by the consumption of beer and weed, which I will likely find out later tonight.

Hopefully I can get some more games that are compatible with the 'rod'.

I haven't played the PS2 version of fishing games but I love them in arcades I don't think there's many fishing games for the PS2

That's the stuff I have. The Sega marine fishing offers way more fish, and even an aquarium to put your unlocked stuff in.

I love the games. The sega bass fishing can become quite a bore if you don't have some competition for high scores. The DC even has a sequel where you CAN drive the boat around. Only the fish don't really seem to btite in that one.

Don't know how it is on the PS2, but on the DC the rod can even be used in Soul Calibur.

i forgot about those games on the dc, only fishing I remember on the dc is the awful fishing on sonic adventure

Haha, I forgot about that too. With the purple cat. Damn that was some boring shit. Maybe I'm even going to play it again today. Haha.

sonic adventure still rocked the DC though the second one was shite and the re-release for the gamecube was shite too I think they done some other stuff to it though
