Can you handle the KB/Mouse for playing FPS games day?
I play PC most, but can't use KB/Mouse to save my life in a FPS game. I have to play those on xbLive. I know blaspheme for a PC gamer, but its true. Too many buttons/Keys and too hard to control and see what I am doing.
daytripper, at this point we have no real idea how BF3 will run and on what system as it's a new engine.
i've never tried kb/mouse for games, i'll try and adapt if not i'll use a controller, trouble with that is i'll get my ass handed to me online by the mouse guys.
Yeah, that's the problem, it's do or die. But it took me longer to get used to FPS on consoles than PC. Though games have this odd mouse acceleration problem creeping into games right now making some FPS games a bit wonky on the PC without ini hacks. I don't think BF3 will have that problem though. it's usually reserved to broken console ports and some valve games for some reason.
Going back and forth from pad to mouse is strange. There's basically no deadzone on a mouse and the sensitivity is so much higher, plus you've got so much more control vs a stick it's a bit of a shock when the very slightest movements are so responsive. But it quickly goes from weird to awesome.
I'd say that pads make everything feel heavier than they should while the mouse probably makes them lighter.
I don't have a problem going back and forth to be honest. Both are now fully internalised now so it's just like riding a bike or driving a car. I don't need to think about it in either case.
mostly due to free online, bluray, exclusives and legacy.
im not gaming so much that it would be worth having both platforms.
dealing with pc problems is my job, so i cba to sit even more on the desk and having to worry about which components i need to upgrade next or why in all hell this piece of fuckware isnt working as it should.
i dont want to worry about those things in my freetime, hence console for me.
i might upgrade my rig for bf3 though..
would love to see new consoles asap.
Despite contrary belief that I am some sort of Xbot due to my regular open criticism of Sony and a lack of interest in a number of their key franchises (God of War, Killzone, Resistance), I do not, in fact, have any preference for any format.
It depends entirely on the games being released at the time, and nothing more.
When LittleBigPlanet 2 was released, you couldn't get me away from my PS3 for almost a month straight. MotorStorm Apocalypse has been keeping my quite happy as well lately.
Numerous multi-platform titles and Kinect games have kept my turning on my 360 on a regular basis.
Since Pokemon Black and White came out, my DS has been in my hands practically everywhere I go.
With Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Dissidia Duedecim and FFIV: The Complete Collection, my PSP has barely been out of my hands for less than a few moments in the past six months
When Civilisation V was released on the PC...
You get the point.
I don't have a gaming "poison". I never have, and I never will. I don't see the point.
