I will be playing with a racing wheel.

Should I buy a racing wheel?

#3 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Probably with a 360 controller on a PC. Unless I find I really like the keyboard and mouse setup. Or if there is no controller support.

#4 Posted by AlexW00d (6309 posts) -

Mouse and keyboard, what else? I use mouse and keyboard for everything though, but for this it's a no brainer, more buttons and it's first person. First person without a mouse is straight up weird now.

@SuperWristBands: There is controller support for the PC.

With my hands?

You should just buy Rock Band drums, that's how Elder Scrolls pros will be playing Skyrim.

Mouse and keyboard!

I hope the controls will be alright.

Rock Band drums are for fools. Dance pads will be the new hotness... again.

I see no problems here. 5 Inputs should be enough.. in fact with a pedal. Whoa, almost too many inputs.

I'm trying xbox controller in my left hand for movement and mouse for looking around. If it doesn't work then I'll test both and decide. I'll probably use the mouse for menu's no matter what though.

#12 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18954 posts) -

If it's not Fifa, Need for Speed, a sidescroller or a platformer, the controller is futile.

Dance mat. Them dragons can't stand against the suffocating power of French disco.

With the power of my voice!

"XBOX!...... MOVE FORWARD!..... MOVE FORWARD!...... HIT!...... HIT!........ XBOX!....... LOAD GAME!......"

#15 Posted by Three0neFive (2297 posts) -

I'll probably use my Dualshock 3 (via motioninjoy), since it looks like the UI's been designed around consoles again anyways.
 
Honestly if it weren't for the fact that the PS3 version is probably going to be the buggiest, I'd be getting it on that rather than PC.

Vin...jorbear, don't buy a racing wheel.

I will be using a controller, as my fiancee and I will be laying in bed playing it together.

Mouse and kb if I play again after that run.

Yes, if there is any game to get a racing wheel for it's Skyrim. I aim for total immersion when I play Skyrim, that's why I already got my wheel set up for when I go horseback riding, and my super scope for shooting arrows while I am riding.

#18 Posted by ShiftyMagician (2131 posts) -

Keyboard and Mouse will be my main though I will switch to a 360 controller to try it at first. If it feels good I could use it in parts of the game that do not require the precision of a Keyboard and Mouse.

I am going to be using a microphone to play skyrim.

#20 Posted by prestonhedges (1965 posts) -

Those punching pads from that one Fist of the North Star arcade game.

Dance pads were great for Oblivion, but Skyrim requires something more; specifically the Mad Catz Pro Guitar. It even has pro in the name!

I bought my Razer Onza TE for two reasons: 1. Trackmania 2. Skyrim

I'm going to get her hooked on heroin, and then control her by giving/withholding her junk. As is my way.

#24 Posted by Starfishhunter9 (369 posts) -

Controller + pc for me

#25 Posted by ChaosDent (234 posts) -

I'll be using the keyboard and mouse. I have an Xbox controller handy in case they really screw up the UI or controls. I'm worried about how they will implement the dual weapon controls and the quick select system. I'm also worried about the menus, as elegant as they look they are extremely geared toward d-pads and their track record for PC UI conversion since Oblivion has been terrible. Still, the PC controls would have to be really bad to make me give up mouselook.

#26 Edited by project343 (2833 posts) -

I'll see how the analogue stick controls feel. I feel like the worst part of any Bethesda game is trying to aim with ranged weapons/abilities. Mastering fireballs in Oblivion felt like dancing... while running backward... and maybe jumping...

If they continue to suck, I'm going keyboard and mouse.

That controller has an illegal amount of buttons... I like it.

I wish someone would mod a Bop It to work on a game console. That'd be too cool.

Come on guys. You know the Steel Battalion setup is the way to go.

kinect, imma do it

#30 Posted by MasturbatingestBear (1192 posts) -

If I do play it ill play it with my fight pad or fightstick... on my 360.

#31 Posted by Fripplebubby (1027 posts) -

The Donkey Kong bongos, of course.

#32 Edited by Fjordson (2450 posts) -

The menus and UI feel really great with the 360 controller. Was always planning on using that, but after spending a little time with it, it feels like they were tailored for a gamepad.

Though I've only played the 360 version. Wouldn't be surprised if there's a different UI for the PC.

#33 Posted by MikkaQ (10318 posts) -

Keyboard and mouse, it's an elder scrolls game.

i have forged a sword and shield containing the inner components of a PlayStation move this is how i plan to control this beast called skyrim, my body is ready.

#37 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

I'm so glad this thread turned into "crazy controllers" instead of the stuff we will actually use. :)

#38 Posted by Mikemcn (6997 posts) -

I modded a Speak and Spell for it.

More buttons more better

#40 Edited by Stahlbrand (838 posts) -

Probably KB/M, but I will try my wired 360 controller - it worked out really well in DE:HR, you could grab the mouse for hacking any time, but control the rest of the game with the pad. Hopefully dual-input support will be handled well in Skyrim, because if I do play with the controller, I'll still want to use the mouse for menus and such at least.

Edit: teh jokes, right. I'm going to hook a theramin to my PC and play without touching anything.

#41 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

I'll definitely be using M&KB but I do want to plug in my 360 controller just to mess around.

#42 Posted by MonetaryDread (2077 posts) -

I recently tried to play New Vegas on a console.  Wow.  Just - wow.  I'm sure it is enjoyable that way if you don't know any better, but mouse and keyboard with 100 points in the guns skill, and a couple of mods (sprint, press "g" for grenade, and a base movement speed increase) and the games movement and shooting is pretty much like Modern Warfare.
 
So yeah, going from that to trying to play the game with a controller makes me understand peoples complaints with the shooting in that series.

Yeah, but Oblivion, Fallout 3, and New Vegas have all had PC UI fix mods within the games first week.
#45 Posted by withateethuh (726 posts) -

I generally always prefer mouse and keyboard for first person games, unless the inventory sucks for PC.

First "fact", then "probably". I call bullshit on your reasoning.
