Default First time ever using game pad on computer,I like it

Bought me a Logitech Wireless Gamepad F710,what a nice controller, wireless with force feedback/vibration.

First time ever on a PC I used a controller.I suck and need to learn how to use it to get all the moves down pat.

I never thought I would ever use a game-pad on the PC.I always thought it was a horrible idea to use a controller on the PC but in all truth it really is not that bad and I will go as far as saying I enjoyed using the controller.

So now I am always going to use a controller for games like Batman Arkham City and the like.

Video:Batman Arkham City Unofficial PC patch DX11 plays awesome.
1920*1080, DX11, Extreme preset, FXAA High, PhysX High,
Nvidia 290.36, PhysX 09.11.1107


LOL I had my steam key on the whole video,must not drink beer when recording a video of a game when playing with steam on.
60-100 FPS in video all the time.No stuttering in sight that I can see.Wow what a fun game to play and its absolutely stunning graphics.


The OSD is MSI Afterburner with HWiNFO64 showing My CPU and Graphics cards.

Controllers FTW!!

I ve been using my 360 for windows controller for just about 5 years now. Fighting, racing, console ports and even a few fps. Played through all of skyrim, fallout nv and fallout 3 with my 360 controller.

Some games require a controller... I would rather cut off my balls then play Super Meatboy with the Keyboard.

I play games like GTA, Fifa, Limbo, TrackMania, Flatout, L.A Noire etc with my wireless 360 for windows controller.

Games like MW3, BF3, Shogun 2, Civ V, SC2 etc are for mouse and keyboard.

GTR Evo, Shift, F1 2010 are best with a wheel.

I use the 360 controller for racers and some other games. Works great, I like having the options to use it.

No evil controllers for me. Though I'll admit some games such as GTA IV would probably work much better with one. My stubbornness won't allow such a travesty to plug into one of my usb ports though! K&M all the way!!!
