Question about what controller to use for PC(dark souls 2)

#1SoulreaperX112Posted 3/8/2014 10:21:31 AM
I pre-purchased dark souls 2($10 off gmg) but if its anything like the first game ill need to pick up a receiver to get one of my wireless controller working.

I have a wii u pro controller and i was wondering if anyone knew how well it works in games. Are there problems getting it to work with most games or is there a way to trick into thinking its a xbox360 controller for better support? I read about a mayflash product doing this but if i can do that with a normal blue-tooth dongle ill go with that. I would need to pick up a blue-tooth dongle and I remember reading about something called toshiba stack software that's needed(do i need a toshiba one?).

I also have a 360 controller but i can't seem to find the official receiver anymore and i am not sure which 3rd party would be the better one(there seems to problems with most of them).

Do you have a PS3 controller? Because that will work right off the bat with a USB cord.

Your best bet is a wired Xbox 360 controller. The game is made for it.

Nah, made for Dualshocks.

It really makes no difference between 360 controller and dual shock. Just go with whatever you find comfortable. Personally the DS3 kills my thumbs on gaming marathons, but that's been a problem for me with all the dual shocks since PS1. I really should buy some joystick covers for them.

360 controller has the caved joy sticks which for me is far more comfortable for lengthy sessions. Sadly the dpad is garbage but for Dark Souls you won't be using it outside of item selecting iirc.

If you're planning to only play modern games, get a 360 controller.

If you're also planning to play 2D or older emulated games, use a PS3 controller. The digital pad on the 360 controller is abysmal.

For now i would probably just use the 360 controller but i might eventually pick up a play station controller.

360 controller for 3D games and Arcade Stick for 2D games =D

Spoken like a true casual Xbot. The first game in the series (Demon Souls) and the controls were co-developed with Sony. But yeah, Sony co-developed an exclusive made for the 360 controller.

*rolleyes*
