He might have been joking about his comment,
LMAO! I was absolutely 199% joking with that post -- like Slinky317 says, there's some SST in there.. (you have to admit it was a decent springboard to page 7, though :D)
For the record: I HATE playing FPS on a gamepad. I just can't stand it, and the argument that there's not much difference is perpetrated only by the crackiest of Crack Monkies.
To date there have been exactly 2 FPSs that I have tolerated on a pad: Goldeneye and BLACK.
Both because they're console only and have stayed that way so far, so there's really no choice. And in the case of BLACK, there's really very little need to actually aim
at things in that game, so the fucked-up nature of gamepad FPS-control works well enough.
Truth be told, I can't WAIT for a good cross-plat shooter to come along.. it's gonna be really fun to slaughter those gamepad do-gooders.
It may be that one day a young man will adore a Pinata.
I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me.
