Well, if it were for very serious gaming, wireless wouldn't cut it anway.

So far my front runner is the the Xarmor U9WL, but I can't find a definitive answer on whether or not it's rechargeable.

+1. Not sure if that helps the OP as they didn't mention anything about competitive gaming, but I just thought this was good advice.

I realize wireless isn't popular among gamers but I don't have a choice for my set up. Wireless is a must since I don't want a cord stretching across my livingroom. The keyboard I'm currently using is a $20 wireless Logitech, and its had no connection issues, but I've wore out the buttons already (w, a, s, d, and shift)

I've already upgraded to a better mouse and it's made a world of difference. But a keyboard is next.

I'm feeling withdrawl from the Overwatch open beta.

The 24th can't come soon enough, game was really slick (although I feel sorry for the console players...seems like it would be a rough game with a controller).

anyone here played darksouls? Is it as good as advertised?

I'm a Dark Souls veteran.

 

Dark Souls is *hard*. But it's also very fair. There is no artificial difficulty. Once you learn your enemies, and learn what you're capable and why, Dark Souls is the fairest video game series in the world.

 

I adore Dark Souls. Very few games have captured my imagination and taken up as much of my time as the Souls games.

 

Here's a cool fan-made (not me) music video thing that, I think, nicely encapsulates the Dark Souls vibe:

The Division has been eating away my life..

I may jump on the latest DS3 release.

I just caught up on all the Overwatch hype. Blizzard animations never cease to amaze me.

Been trying to learn Hearts of Iron III for HOI IV which is coming out in June, but it's even more complicated than EUIV

No experience with Dark Souls but I did pick up Bloodborne which I've heard is very similar. It's impressive but difficult.

The difficulty didn't keep me from buying it, but I'm not sure I can do the game justice. Other commitments leave only a few hours a month for gaming and that's not enough time to get up to speed on a game like this. Sadly, I need games that offer a more immediate payoff at this point.

I got the Steam controller.



Pretty good build material. It says all games on Steam work with it, though I've found issues. The haptic pads kind of vibrate a little when you move your thumb around, so you feel more of a physical sense of where your thumb is on the pad. In other worse its so much more superior than say controlling something by touching a smart phone screen, even though it's touch sensitive.

It also has gyros in it, so say if you are aiming a gun, you can tilt the controller up or down or side to side to aim.

Control layouts are made by the game developers, but people in the community make their own layouts and upvote the most popular ones. Every gave has dozens of layouts.

I ended up returning it because even though the control you can achieve with a game is superior to a 360 controller, you have to kind of go through a learning curve with each game. I'd roughly compare the experience to playing a flight sim and you know your mouse and keyboard are plug in play, but if you are super serious about you will buy a joystick, learn all the custom controls, and customize X/Y sensitivity ect. In the end I just wanted plug and play. When I play PC games with a controller that's usually brain off drinking time for me. I just want it to be simple.

+ fucking 1. At first I thought it was underwhelming. Picked it up the next again the 2nd day of the beta and got hooked. Preordered the origins edition (not from Blizz though, too expensive). Can't wait.

I'm actually even attending the launch event thingy in a cinema hoping for some ingame goodies, lol.

I finished DS 3 a couple of weeks ago. It was awesome. I was never into that kind of games but Bloodborne made me realize how great they are. And it also prepared for DS3, which didn´t feel much slower than Bloodborne.

I spent most of the weekend playing the new Doom campaign. It is awesome, love the soundtrack too.
