The 360 controller is far, far superior to the DS - it's definitely worth the price.

As others have said, though, if you're playing FPSs, switch to mouse/keyboard unless you just want to pad everyone else's scores. :)

Have you actually used the Dualshock 4? While I always preferred DS, the DA4 is far suprior to the DS3.

Currently playing: Destiny (PS4), Atelier: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky -Escha and Logy, and (some) Rune Factory 4.
Going to play soon: Ratchet and Clank HD Collection (started it, but not gonna really get into it until later.)

I have, though my comment above was specially referring to the earlier iterations. The DS4 fixes a lot of the controller line's issue, but I still consider the 360 controller to be better. It has a better overall shape, better feel on the analog sticks, and the correct placement of the left analog stick. Sadly, neither Microsoft nor Sony seem to be able to create a decent D-Pad.

While that does describe a lot of modern FPS's, there are exceptions.

You don't even have to go that far - games like the Fallout, Thief (the original duo, not the godforsaken abomination of a remake), and even ZombiU are often called FPS games by some. However, each of the above all are defined better by other genres. FPS is used a bit too broadly, unfortunately.

Since I don't own a 360 wired controller, or the receiver needed to use a wireless 360 controller on PC, I've been looking into ways to use my Wii U Pro Controller on my new computer. I found few results, and they seemed a bit... sketchy, to say the least. Has anyone been able to set up a Wii U Pro Controller for their PC here, and if so, what method did you use?

There's probably a way to do it - I have an adapter that allows me to connect my Gamecube controller to my computer, and I imagine that would be even easier to do for the Pro controller. A quick search found this:

14 days of Humble Bundles. First one ends today in a little over an hour, so if you like Deep Silver you have little time left as each bundle will only be up for a day.

There are no stupid questions, except for the ones that are.
Bergmite, Piloswine and Snover safari.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

@edhe So, this one lets you conquer planets? Well... MMMMaybe I'm interested. I have Civ III in my Steam Library, but I could never get around to playing it. The amount of information at throws at you can be staggering. It feels like you have to know a lot of things beforehand in order to play it properly. Maybe this one will be a little more newcomer-friendly?

Try something like Crusader Kings 2 makes Civ III look like Kirby.

The Mayflash adapter Wii U Pro Controller Adapter does work problem is it use a literal mapping (Wii U - A to 360 - A etc). So you might need to mess around with Durazno. (To put the mapping back to a sensible way.)

If I was to buy a controller now I would get the Hori 360 one (It has a decent dpad).

No way I would mess around allowing unsigned drivers.

ew. The thumbsticks are raised way too much on a 360.

It literally tries way too hard to be a fps controller but who uses a controller for that.

Well yeah because there's aim assist in typical FPS. But any tournament competitive game has it turned off. Try installing a program like Keysticks that lets you control every action of your computer with a controller. It's really hard and shows how much we've come to rely on aim assist and other tweaks.

I was more so talking about playing PC competitive shooters like counter strike with a controller...its not really even possible.

I don't play multiplayer shooters at all, but honestly, I'm better with a controller than with a mouse. In fact, I find using a mouse incredibly annoying. I wouldn't mind some kind of alternative like a joystick to regularly use for my PC.

EDIT: Or maybe something like this, if the price wasn't so steep...

I'm not a PC gamer, but.....This is one 'of the few' Survival horror PC titles that i wouldn't mind jumping into.
Does it live up the hype? Is it scarier than the Fatal Frame series? Mind you, i still haven't played any of the FF games. :P

@WaveBoy
I might be biased, since any game even mildly frightening will terrify me, but PC horror gaming expert (A.K.A., my brother) @FuguNinja9001 gives it the big stamp of approval, so that should be saying something.

Also, does anybody else really enjoy Uplink? I've never played anything quite like it, and it's definitely not something you'd see on consoles in a million years. One of the best games ever to play on a rainy day or late at night (Or better yet, both).

If you want horror done right,

Untitled

is great. I liked it much more than Amnesia. Alternatively,

Untitled

Is also rather creepy, but it's more of a platform puzzler.
