Do you like Valve's gamepad?

I might feel a little weird that my left hand will do more action presses depending on the binding

My first reaction was WTF trackpads!?! Garbage.
Once you have read it, trackpads with feedback?
This could be groundbreaking.
Great solution to the Wii U dual screen problem, have it overlay on main screen when you touch it.
I will have to see how it handles Kerbal Space Program before it replaces anything I got.

I don't know man. I don't really like track pads.


Me neither. There's a reason people don't use laptop trackpads for gaming.... I know this is in a controller that you hold, but seriously, throw 2 sticks on there instead and the controller is instantly better.

It sounds like their intent was to replace keyboard/mouse and conventional gamepads with no use of gimmicks.

Just straight up by-gamers-for-gamers type of thinking.

I didn't think I could possibly get this interested in a controller by Valve, but god damn do I want to try that thing.

I dunno...2 trackpads instead of sticks is kind of a gimmick on it's own...

Its still terrible. Its just the worst way I've ever controlled something and lack of feedback, while a big problem, is not all that makes this terrible.

Maybe they'd work for specific genres... as long as this controller is just an option on the side for weird people, I won't mind, people can use what they want, but I certainly would never use such a thing. I don't even like touchscreens on a controller, either. Nothing in that "thing" appeals to me.

I thought people didn't use trackpads for gaming, because it's hard to hit M1 and M2...

Looks interesting.
However, it only works for games that originally needed a mouse.
There is not enough buttons for something like a fighting game.

Way less precise than a mouse/keyboard.

It's different, looks cool (to me), made by someone I trust, and I am honestly looking for something to differentiate itself from the DS3 controller and Xbox one. I've NEVER liked any of Logitech's controllers, they all feel like cheap pieces of plastic to me.

I hope this one is different, which is why I'll try it.
