A Todd McFarlane/Microsoft collaboration to work on Halo 3 controllers should be a winning combo...but it's not. Sure, the Spawn creator drew up some awesome images of Master Chief, soldier-filled Warthogs, and evil Covenant aliens. Yes, Brian thinks they're good. However, plastering a glossy reprint all over a controller isn't cool, it's gaudy and cheap looking. And packaging in Halo figurines doesn't make the design any better. Of course, the hardware is up to full Microsoft standards (read: awesome). But if I wanted something that looked like this, I'd go find a third party Nuby controller in the bargain bin at Best Buy and avoid paying $60.
