Can i play the dark souls games properly with a mouse and a keyboard? If not, which gamepad is the best to get for the pc?
Xbox 360 controller for sure.
The game can be played on mouse and keyboard but I really wouldn't recommend it, I couldn't get past the first area with keyboard and mouse and actually just gave up the game entirely until I got a controller.
there is not best, this is the dark age of gaming and most pc games today only support the 360 controller for fat american hands, anything else and you will have to emulate the 360 controller
Dont use the mouse, jikl + u,h for attacking is better
I guess it's the 360 then.
But is there even one for the pc? I do like the playstation controllers a lot. They just feel so comfy in the hands and they are the only controllers i have played a lot on.
Wait wasn't that windows live shit removed or something? I don't even know if i have an account.
Also another question, are there any other games that would be useful to play on a controller, rather than a mouse and keyboard? Are there any good fighters or something with online matchmaking because i have no friends to play with?
>mfw finished DaS with k+m
O+S was goddamn hell, cause targeter was changing for no good reason and fucking up my rolls
Beaten the game over ten times with KB+M.
Most people who say you can't play with KB+M haven't actually put in the effort of setting it up. I can't even use a controller now, feels too awkward.
Someone will probably say I'm bullshitting, but I played Dark Souls with a controller and hated it.
Get anything that supports xinput. The 360 controller has it, and some logitech controllers have an option to switch between it and direct input. Fuck getting a ps3 controller. You'll have to use a xinput wrapper to play anything made over the last couple of years.
You remind me of myself 5 years ago when I said playing fps games with a touchpad was easier and felt more natural. Needless to say I stopped being retarded and you should stop too.
Yes you can. IGNORE EVERYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE.
All you need to do is download a little mod that swaps some buttons of your keyobard while the DS2 window has priority. You can play PERFECTLY there.
In fact, after playing for like three hours on keyboard+mouse I tried it with a controller and it was awful, I had way more accuracy with a keyboard ironically.
>Can i play the dark souls games properly with a mouse and a keyboard?
Yes. Absolutely. You can play it even just keyboard only but you gotta be real good.
You can use DSMfix for better mouse support but I don't personally, and please rebind your keyboard keys to your liking since they are not optimal by default.
don't listen to all these limp dick chicken shits.
just get the dsmfix and rebind your keys to something you find comfortable.
once I had a couple of hours of practice on a new layout I liked using my KB+M better than a controller.
Invest in a 360 pad. I bought one just for Dark souls and I have 500 hours and counting on the game. It will be perfect to play any indiegame/platformer/roms afterward.
Xb360 or PS3, your call. I personnally prefer the 360 one because it is bigger and easier for me to play the joystick+ press the trigger than on the PS3. I tried playing SF4 on PS3 but I just can't with the shoulder buttons of the pad.
