I want to try Dark Souls, it sounds interesting. $18 on amazon or $19.99 on Steam right now, the problem is I don't have a controller for my PC.

Looking around online, the xbox360 controller for PC is $50-60... is it worth it to even buy this game if the controller required to play it is basically the cost of a brand new game? Opinions please. Obviously once I HAD the controller I could consider other consolish games, but still.

At the very least am I missing some cheap controller source?

*EDIT* Ok found one as low as $36, will continue the search. How bad is Dark Souls with Keyboard/Mouse? *EDIT*


ps. Bought entirely too much off gog.com the past few weeks.

I was gone for most of 2012 but I have bought pretty much every 2012 game I wanted in these sales. Only exception being Borderlands 2, but as a solo player it's much lower on my priority list than it would be for an online gamer.

Now I have to make the agonizing decision of which to play first. I'm thinking Dishonored or Far Cry 3.

Amazon Dark Souls = $18 plus you can use your $5 credit on it. I'll probably pass on it give how poor I've heard the port is. Anyone know if it's improved? Do you still have to use a gamepad?

Some games are just better with a gamepad. I'm a KB/M guy, but even if Dark Souls *were* an awesome port and supported KB/M well, it would be a bad experience with it. That's not what kind of control scheme the game was designed for, at its core.

You don't have to but it's a much easier experience with one given how often precision movement is required. I suggest picking it up, difficulty is punishing but rewarding all the same and there is very little like it on the market. It's worth it for the environmental design alone. Apply DSFix and you're pretty much good to go.

Steam sale has fallen victim to its own popularity. With so many people willing to score daily deals, publishers are getting more greedy and discount less.

It started off strong pre-Xmas, but now it's fading fast. Then again Steam is known for huge deals on the last day of their sales.

Steam sale isn't very strong lately. There were a few good deals but for the most part Amazon and greenmangaming is kicking Steam's ass.
