If you can play at least Adept on that game then you can keep up the average player on a K&M ... at least that is my take on the matter. Now I admit that I still find it a bit easier to use a K&M for shooters but take Gears for example. There's a game I actually prefer to use the gamepad with and not the K&M and that is even though the aiming for me is a tad bit easier on the K&M it just does not feel right ... same with Lost Planet.

    I just wonder if you gamers have ever watched the Pro gaming circuit on G4TV ... the one where they play Halo 2 tournaments. Man I am pretty sure that any of those dudes could handle themselves quite well against any K&M folks around. It would be very interesting to see the best Halo player take on Fatal1ty on a PC playing Gears of War since that game supports the use of a gamepad or K&M. I don't know who would win but I know it would be very interesting. I don't even know that it would ever end this seemingly eternal debate tbh but it would be a helluva lot of fun to watch.
    Haha, good old K&M vs Gamepad arguement.

    I have one point on this everytime it's brought up.
    Putting aside skill-set, personal preference, and everything else that normally comes up in this arguement; the K&M combo has one major advantage: the mouse.

    A mouse has no limitation to movement and tracking speed and can be adjusted almost limitlessly. A joypad no matter which one, will always be limited to it's 360 degrees of rotation and the speed at which it uses this input to affect character view.

    controllers are great for console games, but ut will always be better for pc if you have a nice computer. For all the console haters out there, sthu, no1 wants to hear you rant about it, everyone know almost every good game comes out on console, while only the "360 exclusives" and multiplatform games come to pc, with the exception old ut games, but ps3 has linux anyway

    I think you can never, ever get as good with a controller as you can with mouse & keyboard.

    Anyway, I play slightly differently, with Forward, strafe left and strafe right on the same line. I find it a little more comfortable and works well:

    NUM4 - Left
    NUM5 - Forward
    NUM6 - Right
    NUM2 - Back
    NUM7 - Prev Weapon
    NUM9 - Next Weapon
    NUM8 - Hover/translocator
    NUM_Enter - Jump
    NUM_. - Crouch
    Mouse Wheel down - Shock Rifle
    Mouse Wheel up - Flak Cannon
    Middle Mouse - Rocket Launcher

    Those wepaon binds allow me to quickly switch to the best weapon, or for example, to get to sniper its Middle Mouse then NUM9.

    Works well

    Really? I use a Ideazon Fang gaming pad online and off for ALL my games (except my IL2-46 and GTR2 of course...for those it is a stick or wheel setup). I play way better with my fang than with a keyboard. It freaking rocks. I can customize as many different configs as I want for whatever game I want and I have tons more options. Macros anyone? Easily config'd w/my Fang.

    The main thing with the gampad is that you'll never have the precision with an anolog stick that you can with a mouselooking. It just can't be done. With a mouse you can stop on a dime, with a an anolog stick, even pressure sensitive for turn speeds, you'll never be that precise.

    Now, there are some killer gamepad players out there...but the best of the gamepad players will struggle to compete with even mid-to low mid-level keyboard mouse players.

    Ask the the people that tested Shadowrun, which mixes and console and PC players.
