Play WoW with your Xbox 360 controller (for some reason)

Did you suddenly jump forward in your seat, your back forming an arch to escape a cold, disembodied finger unexpectedly poking it? That, dear reader, is the sensation that goes hand-in-hand with a software company attempting to scratch an itch you didn't even know you had. Using an application called Switchblade, Blue Orb Software hopes to cut out one of life's central annoyances: playing World of Warcraft with a keyboard and mouse!

As the above video so helpfully demonstrates, Switchblade will bind your MMORPGing to an Xbox 360 controller and consequently, a far more obtuse control scheme. If you plan on giving it a whirl (for laughs?), you'd best memorize the intricate combinations of face buttons, triggers and bumpers required to rotate the camera, make menu selections and not die. Let us know how it goes.
