Straley confirms that TLOU Remastered uses triggers instead of bumpers to aim & shoot and that it feels "so good". They also added Southpaw support.
Left handed gamers rejoice!
It's nice of Naughty Dog to think of the minority (left handed gamer btw)
forgive me, but i'm not entirely sure how left-handed gaming works...
@ziggurcat The sticks are swapped around. Im right handed but played southpaw for years after playing Turok and Goldeneye with Turok control settings. I hate the fact that i eventually got used to right handed sticks as im now rubbish when I return to Goldeneye
I am left handed and I play the "normal way" I couldnt imagine southpaw gaming. That might just be me though.
I wouldn't know, I'm right-handed. I guess some experienced left handed players are used to no southpaw support in most games though, that's why it might be strange for you. It should be more natural for a left handed person who's just approaching gaming.
This makes no sense at all. Lets say there were more left people in the world? and lets say games were design the same way they are today. People would just get use to the controls. A southpaw option is so unnecessary. Its only commonsense.
Not sure what you've got against it, if they want to use it and it feels better for them, so be it
Yes I can still use L1/R1.
Choice is good, but why would you do that? L2/R2 is much better on DS4 in my opinion.
My hands are average size.Plus i feel better with my hands fully wrapped around my controller.As soon as BF4 gave us the L1/R1 option i switched right away.
it's not like you need the sensitivity for anything in this game. i loved the control layout on PS3.
For me R1 and L1 feels more natural based upon its position.
Why? I am so glad that the triggers r the shoot buttons. I hated the DS3, love the DS4 more than any controller ive ever used...like it was made for me.
Yeah, it's too bad there aren't truly official drivers for Windows. Let's hope Sony does something for that soon!
I'm glad too, I really prefer the snappier buttons to aim and fire.
i prefer L1/R1 over the triggers, so that's good that they're still allowing that configuration.
Can't wait to play this! I missed out the first time around.. I'm set for this go-round!!
DS4 triggers are fantastic, makes sense to move to them. I can see why they stuck with the bumpers for the DS3. Triggers on that were horrendous.
Everything about the DS4 is perfect. Best controller ever.
agree, well except for the rubber on the thumbsticks that peels :S
@uth11 Yes strange thing is ALL MY FRIENDS who bought launch day PS4 consoles here in the uk had their controllers analogue sticks crap out on them and two of them even had the R1 bumper go dead but luckily i am the only one (touch wood) who has had zero problems with my controllers/consoles and thats X1/PS4 and WiiU! Actually come to think of it even my launch fatty PS3 is still working like a champ while all of my friends are on replacement consoles LOL maybe its karma since i did have 7 xbox 360s go dead on me! and no i didn't go out and buy all 7, some were replacements! either way i am very happy so far with the next gen consoles reliability but i suppose we wont truly know if the PS4/X1 have fail rates till the 1 year mark.
Certainly the new ds4 will improve the already excellent gameplay.
The PS3 Triggers were l1/R1. The L2/R2 was design for racing games.
One week of use and my triggers are already squeaky as hell, they are god awful.
Time to plug in my DS4 to get familiar with it on the ps3 mp.
So by default that means their giving us a choice? Other developers should take note.
I dont know why they dont have complete button mapping as standard on all games. It cant be that hard can it, they just need to do it.
Nice.. I love the idea of changing the controls if that's your thing.. July 29th!!!! here we go!
L2/R2 to aim and shoot? L1/R1 to run and use Listen Mode? I thought the normal control layout was already fine as is. I'll have to try this out.
I'm a lefty but there is no way I can play southpaw. Do a lot of stuff right handed.
agree dude. the southpaw option is so unnecessary. This makes no sense at all. Lets say there were more left people in the world? and lets say games were design the same way they are today. People would just get use to the controls. A southpaw option is so unnecessary. Its only commonsense.
its time to move on from the ds3 and get use to them ds4 triggers because they really are awesome :D
I'm ambidexterous, but thanks anyway.
Sweet! Lefties need some more lovin' :)
I am left handed, and in 26 years of gaming, I have never once used southpaw controls. I have tried, and I just can't get used to it. I don't really understand the point of inverting the thumbsticks and triggers. I've just never had a desire to invert the controls. I've never had a moment where I thought "it would be easier for me if the sticks and triggers were inverted".
thank you!! it makes no sense lmao.
I apologize if this is a bit brash, but I have always wondered why it seems like all games with guns on Playstaion consoles used L1 and R1 or the 'bumpers' for the actual shooting. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Uncharted and The Last of Us, but to me the way it is on nearly every Xbox game feels the best. Its just natural, trigger button pulls a trigger in the game. I primarily play all my shooters on the 360, and it just feels right. One could go as far to say "feels so good". Now before everyone disagrees and down bubs me, I'm an equal opportunity gamer my only loyalty is to the very best games in the world. No matter what device the game is played on.
