I read a lot of complaints about how a controller was pretty much mandatory when it came out, but did they release patches to fix that? Do controller hotkeys still show up when you're not using one?

there is a mod that fixes KB+M but really, the game just works well with a controller.

You don't NEED a gamepad, but for a game like Dark Souls you sure as hell would benefit from one.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

There's a mod but why don't they just release a patch to fix it? Don't really feel like supporting such a shoddy port.

Because in doing the port, they prefaced it by saying "It won't be a good port. We'll give you the DLC first though. We never wanted to put it on PC and we are not PC devs. It won't be supported any further than the Console versions. Do you still want it." The community crying out for the game said yes. they got what they asked for and what the devs promised. to expect a stellar port from a purely console dev with no prior PC dev experience is sort of silly. If you haven't played the game, play it. Mod it.

This game is built from the ground up for a controller.

The devs had no idea what a PC was before this port and didn't even bother to do any research whatsoever.

Play it with a controller.

you should always play 3rd person games with a controller.
My whole life has been a miserable pig filled ordeal because of you.

This. Also prepare to suck using Kb/m in PvP. Or fighting tough enemies. For this game:

Yeah, even with a mod for better controls and changing the UI prompts to PC buttons, it's clunky as hell on kb/m. A controller is practically a requirement. With mods though, it's a pretty respectable looking game, and it's one of the funnest games I've played in the past two years.
