Nausea? Oh, right, I’m learning new video game commands again.

It’s interesting: I decided to get back to Assassin’s Creed 2  after all, which meant grabbing a Logitech Gamepad F310 (that gamepad seemed to be the most cost-effective choice, overall), and now I’ve realized something: I’ve never actually used the latest generation of video game controllers before.  Or, probably, the last few generations before them.  Only, the video game people (fairly reasonably) expect that their users have are in fact used to contemporary game controllers.  I’m now starting to understand why a lot of console gamers hate PCs as a game platform: there’s a completely different set of muscle memories involved.

That’s it.  Just wanted to note this.

    Solid choice. I bought the wireless version for Spelunky.

    It’s funny, even when I play games on the PC platform that multiplatform (like Skyrim, currently), I plug in a 360 controller. Since most games these days are primarily developed on the console first and then ported to the PC as an afterthought, the console interface is usually quite a bit less polished.

    BTW, quick Diablo 3 beta review. It’s Diablo, except prettier.

    er, the pc interface is less polished.

    I’m unable to play games That require me to hit L1-R2, and use some seperate joystick to controll off the ball action.
