GB : Mass Effect 3 PC version won't have Gamepad support.
Wow I wonder why? Not going to be the most popular move from Bioware.
Oh shi*. This again? Well, it looks like I will have to use xpadder...
Dumb move indeed.
I can't say I'm surprised, the first two games didn't support it either. BioWare: Forcing us to use Xpadder/Joy2Key. It'd be so much easier if they'd just add it compatible instead of us having to tweak things around outselves. Or rely on a fan to release a mod to allow it.
Better to have the option of using a gamepad than not. I mean what's the point? It's just an unnecessary limitation.
This company confuses me. They can pump 100's of millions into a PC only title (SWTOR) but something simple like gamepad support in a huge title is out of the question.
This makes no sense , I can use a 360 controller on a console but not the PC , this is stupid because its the same input. Did they just delete the code to handle it on the PC version to piss fans off or what. @ Previous Article "Mass Effect 3 Is Complete" NO IT IS ***BEEP*** NOT
Xpadder will fix this for anyone who cares. I personally cannot see any reason as to why you would play this game with a pad rather than a mouse and keyboard, as the interface is designed perfectly for such and shooters just play better this way. While it seems a silly omission, I just can't see why it's really that big of a deal. Besides, PC gamers (fanboys, really) are always going on about how superior M+K controls are, what's changed? I've never played a Bioware game any other way.
Needless as you little "jab" is, I'm a big k/b and mouse fan, but in a non competitive, not reaction dependent game like ME, a pad does the job perfectly. Of course those "fanboys" maybe more inclined to ditch the pad when playing online.
xpadder and pinacle never work as well as native support! looks like im either going to forget about me3 and buy them for my xbox or forget about bioware and all their d*** moves! probably the latter
Seriously? Talk about "cutting off your nose to spite your face." This is a pretty small issue. God damn. Plus, how did you play previous Mass Effect games if this is such a deal breaker for you? They didn't have pad support either on PC.
I prefer using my mouse anyway
I normally use a mouse and keyboard for mass effect games so its no hassle, but I can see how someone who is used to a controller and has decided to get it on PC would be annoyed. Luckily alternatives will come.
Personally i like to alternate between the two depending what mood i am in. Always nice to have the choice which is why its annoying to hear such news =(
Easily fixed... But still, pretty silly move on there part.
Not that I would want to play it with a gamepad but if I did I would just use one of the many key-remapping software packages and do it anyway.
It's no use, man. They're already signing petitions and joining hunger-strikes. I hate to use the term "first-world problems", but... yeah.
Neither of the first 2 supported gamepads on PC either, big deal.
Ok know i will get down voted quicker than a republican agenda, but from what i have heard all PC gamers prefer mouse & keyboard. if that the case why are most of you complaining.
mouse is better for shooting. and also support for other rpg elements is also good. so not a big deal.
lol played the pc demo had no issues with the controls :/ looked stunning btw. I tend only use control pads on sport games on PC. I have FIFA12 on pc thats IT as far as sport goes. Steeringwheel for racers. Keyboard mouse for the rest simples.
I dont play shooting games on consoles because I am forced to use the controller. I much rather keyboard and mouse. If console games worked with keyboard and mouse I would get rid of my gaming PC.
ah man, thats no good. :( mouse and keyboard is nice for online games, but i want to kick back and relax when i play my long single player games. :/
