OK, so it had nothing to do with playing Trials, just your typical idiot story of drinking too much and then punching a wall. I was feeling really manly at the time and even chose to punch a stone wall as opposed to those wimpy sheetrock kinds. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_rolleyes.gif

I fractured the metacarpal attached to the pinkie finger, aka "boxers fracture".

The one GOOD thing is that it doesn't seem to affect my Trials HD playing since your pinkie and ring fingers aren't used.

In fact, it almost braces my hand in such a way that helps my ability to manipulate the controller. I might just strap this baby on even when its fully healed! http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif

did that last summer biking, broken hand and two twisted fingers with boxers fractures. had a cast up to my elbow but the way it was formed, an xbox controller fit in the palm perfectly. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif only thing i could do still WAS play trials, so was all good. good luck with your healing, and have fun with your permanent twisted pinkie http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif (i can't make a fist with that hand now)

No kidding?!

Ya, from the sound of it, it has a chance to be one of those annoying nagging injuries that never heal properly.

yes, hopefully they twisted it back in for you so its straight, before they set the cast. mine were messed up so bad, now even healed if i try to make a fist two fingers cross-over the other 2 making an X. not one of my worst injuries, but a bit annoying. you will feel it in cold weather too, enjoy http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif
