I just cant do shooters(READ: Games played from the first person perspective) on a keyboard and mouse. Any word if this is remotely in the works?
I cant play minecraft until it has native gamepad support.
Probably not, but Minecraft is a pretty good game to learn to navigate WASD+mouse on, since it's relatively undemanding and has a pretty wide margin of 'aiming' error. Might as well learn sometime, you'll open up a world of possibilities when you do! ( I learned on Mass Effect just a few years ago, myself. )
Its mostly dumb stuff. My desk and chair is crap so its hard to get comfortable hovering over my computer. and my space bar is all gummed up cause I spilled soda on it. But I am a console kid too so I just prefer a controller when I can have it.
I guess this could be used as a temporary solution until they add gamepad support, if they add gamepad support.
You could try downloading something like Xpadder, and hooking a controller up to it.
I use that setup occasionally. It was dirt-simple to configure and is better on my wrists for massive strip-mining projects.
Sounds like the OP is just lazy, though.
Throw my vote in for XPadder. I used that on Minecraft a few times a while back and it works, though I switched back to M+K because it just worked so much better for me.
Also, rule of thumb: Soda does not go near computers. Pain in the bum, I know, but the two do not mix well.
I thought the same thing. I prefer a controller over keyboard and mouse, because of a physical disability, it's just easier. Though I found mind craft is slow enough, in your reaction time that I find keyboard and mouse the way to go. Your in the inventory enough that being able to select things with the mouse comes in handy.
This is a create game and the controls wont take away from the experience.
