Title: Odd controllers
Post by: Zelsias on September 17, 2022, 03:42:08 AM
sooooo here I am minding my business when guess what, I remember I have a 2018 Valve steam Controller, yes, not a steam deck, a steam controller, and I am wondering, is there people out there using odd controllers on pc? so I made this topic just to comment on odd tipes of controllers be it the already mentioned steam controller or the apple pippin controller (which god knows what the hell apple was smoking when they created it.... give me some of that cause ngl it was weird but awesome in its own way) and that is all, I just want to know about weird controllers.

(the steam controller for example has two trackpads instead of the right joystick and the d-pad honestly its comfy af and after some tweaking it feels awesome to use)

Absolutely amazing controller, used nothing but it for 3 years while playing For Honor, was disgustingly overpowered in my opinion in that game due to the way the guard system works.

But I went through like 4 of them (got 2 free because under warranty) because it has a big flaw I found out during usage. After a while you can break the little plastic switch inside the LB and RB buttons that make them go click. Since its plastic it can only bend so many times, and incidentally For Honor's light attack button was RB. So all 4 controllers I went trough eventually broke there. Never was able to fix it and trust me I tried.

Still a great controller though. Pic of my first one that I ever got from November 2017

Honestly the versatility it gives to the user is awesome, the only downside is that some parts do wear down after some time of use.
I am happy that there are people out there still using it!

Wish I could still use it, mine all broke and I never lifted a hand on them, they all broke from usage and they all broke on the RB button in the span of about 8-10 months after I got them. Feels real bad. Had to switch to a dualshock 4 and I also got the 2 back button extention for it so I could somewhat emulate the steam controller with its back buttons.

This isn't an odd controller more of an off-brand/3rd party one but I used an afterglow Xbox 360 controller before switching to dual shock 4 and it was the best 3rd party controller I had ever used. Plus yay for wired!
