I've been on the Xbox 360 since 2005 and I got a gaming PC earlier this year, and let's just say I'll never touch a controller again!
What the hell have I been doing with my life aiming with an analog stick? This mouse shit is THE BEE'S KNEES
I hate aiming on a controller but the mouse options suck, it feels really, really sensitive. Like I barely move my mouse and the aim is just all over the place, the in-game options aren't working properly because it's automatically set really low, yet it's still super sensitive. Any higher and it's truly unplayable. :/
I guess I should try lowering the DPI in the mouse control panel but that's never been an issue in other games. I feel the game is applying a different level of mouse control, every other game feels the same sensitivity as just moving around the desktop.
One plus to the controller is the right thumbstick is a better way of using ironsights than the middle mouse button. (or any other mouse button that isn't right click since that is used for tonics)
I've been using Mouse and keyboard and it works well, the mouse sensitivity takes a little getting used to though. I heard that if you're using a gamepad and you wanna use another vigor than the two you have equipped you have to pause the game and select the others from the menu whereas on keyboard you just use the number keys so I'll probably stick with it.
Started out with M&K but it's kind of uncomfortable leaning forward all the time, especially for a long single player game. I think I'll probably switch to controller so I can just lean back, I don't really care about being super accurate in this type of game.
I was going to use mouse and keyboard but the sensitivity seemed pretty crazy. I just couldn't find an amount I was happy with so I just played through with a controller instead. Didn't really have much trouble (3 frustrating, identical fights late in the game aside) even on 1999 difficulty.
Keyboard makes it really easy to switch between vigors. The less radial pausing, the better.
Yeah, the sensitivity is really crazy. I had to turn the slider all the way down to get to a comfortable level.
Then I set my mouse to 5700 dpi with the game slider all the way to the right, and I became the Tasmanian Devil.
I agree w/ the mouse being difficult, but still I have been doing K+M. I'm very tempted to do another playthrough though (on hard or whatever) and also on gamepad. Slowly though, I have gotten used to this Rocat mouse I bought. My previous Death Adder screwed up on me, but really should have bought enother.... Except Rocat does have button dpi adjustment...which I forgot about and am no longer using. Heh.
Just getting used to how they have it set up (minus acceleration).
It's not the first time.
If y'all motherfuckers think sitting and your desk is uncomfortable you either have horrendous posture or you need a better chair.
I kinda really don't like using controllers at all, but even if I did I wouldn't use one, cause I need that precision to headshot every enemy with the pistol. The noise it makes when you headshot enemies really adds to the experience for me.
I'm 6 hours in according to Steam and using the controller and it's really comfortable and satisfying. Probably the only proper choice for playing this game in any sensible fashion really.
If you have something against my preference of peripherals then that's your own prerogative but would you kindly not project your negative assumptions onto me.
