IGN just gave it a 5.9 …any strats guys want to review? :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

putting em under the back wheel of a car does often cause em to break. Me thinks you dont seem broken up at the fact you ““have”” to order a steam controller :wink:

Man I didn’t realize it was that bad. Just got a refund. Looks like i’ll just have to fix my 360 controller.

@Auth has one and has been promising an unboxing post with photos and a review. When I tried it at GDC and more recently at TwitchCon, I wasn’t too impressed. Felt very strange, like they were trying to be unconventional for the sake of being unconventional.

I will prioritize an unboxing and review tonight.

I agree…seems like it would feel awkward in the hands and accuracy with touch pads would be lower than a joystick. But I have never touched it :ok_hand:.


#11

I haven’t read any reviews, but I’m wondering if you give it some proper time if it’d actually end up being a better controller. We’ve become so accustomed to the conventional controller that anything remotely different is going to feel weird at first, but it may genuinely become a more comfortable controller.

I look forward to reading @Auth’s review of it.

Well the main issue for me was that there’s no tactile feedback on a touch surface. That makes things difficult. You can likely get used to it of course but is that really better?


#13

Completely fair statement, although without being able to try one for an extended period of time, I really have no idea how much better (if it all) it would be. I suppose we’ll have to wait for some extensive reviews to come out, and hopefully the reviewers actually give it a good test, not just the initial overview and feel of their first hour with the controller.

Sure, I mean the exact same argument was used when the first iPhone came out. Everyone said “it will be impossible to type because you can’t feel the keys under your fingers!”
