Re: Bungie: 'Nobody Plays Shooters With A Mouse And Keyboard'

said by DJboutit:

The way the controller on TF2 is setup it so much easier to use a keyboard and mouse

Well that is a big "DUH, ya think?"

You're making me feel really old now.

No shit.

I'm a Gen X'er and even I'm starting to feel like an old fuck.

No kidding, if you would have told me that I'd feel old on videogame forum a couple of years ago I'd have laughed my ass off.

i think this is what my buddy got to school some kiddies on COD:MW3 or 4 about a year ago. Not really sure.

»xim3.com/

But whichever one he got, he said was some funny $#!t going on. He said he wished he could have recorded it and posted the rantings up of the kids who thought that they were top dogs, then he switched from controller to KB/M combo.

PS3 if I recall uses USB keyboards as well by default. I have one and have never tried it so unsure of whether or not it WILL work. Dont have a USB keyboard to try it out.

And yes, that dude is on some serious medication if he thinks anything like that is going to happen anytime soon where controller kiddies, think that they are better when almost every single game for consoles has AIM ASSIST built into it. They just dont get it.

But yes, console is the easy way out for developers since every one of them is exactly the same specs. No thinking outside of the box for them...no sir! So then they have to TRY to spif it up for us PC users to play the game on something other than 640x480 32bit systems. And we see which developers have fallen by the wayside when they do crap like that.

Genuine baby boomer here.

Ahh for the good ole days when a keyboard was part of a typewriter that did nothing but type on paper.

I recall my first electric typewriter, man it was awesome.

I think if Sony and MS do what they might do with the next Gen consoles, this thread might become moot. They might kill console gaming.

LOL - I can't use a controller- too many buttons to try and remember which ones you need to use. They are just trying to make it fact so they do not have to do more work/programming.

This...I simply cannot use controllers. My hands are weird. Maybe it is all the years of using a kb and mouse.

Yep it is supported but only works for chat/internet/video. No games I've seen offer any WASD support.

The Vette and Porsche are both fine vehicles, but not in my budget. The sticker price is just the entry fee into that game. I've got a buddy with a supercharged Corvette Grand Sport (actually his wife's car). Fine car, but damn, everything associated with that car is expensive.

To answer AVD, you get it when you can afford it. Life is too short.

I would never be sad about not getting a porsche

and I'm too practical to get a vette

dream car is s6 audi

my buddy was on a Speed Vision reality show about 6 years ago, where it was a driver competition

drifting... drag racing... street course driving

the final event was a street course, with Porsche vs. Vette. vs. Nissan Z vs. mustang vs. something else

i know all in all its not apples vs. apples... the ONLY car to finish the street course race was teh vette... everything else broke down before the end of the race

he drove the nissan Z, it was the first car to break down during the race

(he races his mini in limerock or something)

it was like a points system competition... the last event, the road course the points leader go to choose his car first.. he picked the porsche, the #2 guys picked vette and won

You're comparing a car with a base price cost that's even higher then a Z06. lol

At that price you're looking at a comparison more along the lines of a ZR1. That GTR aint "blowing it's doors", especially around a track.

Won't matter. no one on this forum is capable of driving either car near it's limits.

I knew someone would bite. I'm quite certain some of us could push either to it's limits... in a straight line... lol

Seriously though, standing mile competitions are quite popular now, especially in Texas. Plenty of room out here I guess. Google or Youtube "Texas Mile" and you'll see some amazing vehicles. I grew up an old street rodder during the heyday of the muscle car era and have spent many a day at the drag strip. Hence my desire to own one of the last fixed rear axle modern pony cars. That's also why I can't corner or brake worth a crap. lol

I used to live down the street from an exotic car rental place.

I was friendly with the owner who worked out at my gym.

he said the car that got wrecked the most was the dodge viper, and that he was on like his 3rd at the place.

he said people don't understand how to drive it, and its just too powerful

another dude at my gym owned a dodge viper, some rich pharmaceutical dude, ugly as fuck.. but his car was beautiful, I have never seen a car with tires that wide before, insane

You know why the Viper gets wrecked so much? Because stupid people use the wheel to drive. Real pros use a controller.
