Ars Technica said this controller was good for everything but games that used analog sticks, which seemed to be a subtle way of saying this controller was good for nothing, without having to give back the sponsored content fee.

Hey, that's interesting. They split up the batteries? The controller is xboxhueg anyways; I wonder why they bothered moving them outboard to the grips.

I just tried it out the Steam Controller® in The Witcher III™. The right side pad is analog, with the speed of the movement is controlled by how far from center your thumb is. I can see getting good at it with a lot of practice, but TBH fam I probably won't play enough FPS with the controller to get good at it.

The tactile feedback is interesting. It ticks as you use the analog pad. I don't know if I like it yet.

The whole thing is not as sturdy feeling as an Xbox controller.

I do. I'm in the market for a controller myself for emulation. I'm leaning towards a PSWhatever controller but I was wondering how bad this one sucked before I made a decision.

>> No.50848777

It's going to take some practice to use the analog pad. TBH fam it trying to use it feels like when I tried using a mouse for the first time. I don't think you're going to get an objective answer until a few months down the road, when we see how competitive FPS players using the controller fare against KB+Mouse players.

I pre-ordered the first day I saw it on Steam™.

Then later I ordered another Steam Controller™® and the Steam™ Link®™℠ neither of which I've received yet.

(not shill. pls dont be mean)

>> No.50849273

it will never be competitive. The 1:1 mapping on the mouse to arm is just leagues beyond the level of control your thumb can provide. All it needs to be to be a great controller is allow you to play non-competitive PC games without too much trouble.

Shit. I ordered mine July 2015. I still haven't got mine, even after the verification email on 10/5. Oh well.

Ignore that picture. Not sure why it double posted it.

>> No.50849487

So you'd rather have some proprietary battery pack, maybe even something irreplaceable?

They could've at least included some rechargeables though.

>> No.50849496

I'm guessing mine's delayed as I orderd it as a bundle with the SteamLink. Like I said, oh well. Waited this long. Enjoy the new gear!

It feels a bit flimsy compared to an xbox controller for two reasons, the sound and the mousey-ness

The wings of the battery cover are buttons (see pic), and since they rely on plastic tension rather than a spring to return, they feel like a mouse's buttons. Which is odd on a game controller, especially on a place one rests their fingers to support the controller. The font "pad" button clicks also feels like a mouse's rather than a game controllers.

The second reason it feels flimsy is the ticking sound the controller makes when you use the pad. The sound is just too light and tinny.

Both of these are subjective, and the benefits of the pad may outweigh these later, but that's just my first impression.
