"Helping The World DISCOVER THE WAY of LOVE!"
As we already knew, the Steam Controller allows each of the touchpads to be configured separately; this means that one can act like buy csgo skin a joystick and calculate player input as the thumb’s distance from the center, while the other acts like a trackpad and follows absolute finger position only. Each has its uses in different games — for instance most Civilization players will likely want to set up both sides as simple trackpads, one for panning the camera and one for moving the mouse. On the other hand, console shooter fans can use simulated double-joysticks for running and aiming in the style of Halo.
It’s the PC shooter fans who are (predictably) the most skeptical about the controller’s ability to provide a good enough experience. Watching both Portal and Counter-Strike, many gamers noted that large view swings like a 180-degree turn could only be achieved with multiple swipes of the thumb. Though Valve will unquestionably allow players to adjust the sensitivity of the pads, one wonders why the controller’s first video wouldn’t show such precision if it were possible. Could the pad be too small to allow accurate aiming over a full 360 degrees in just a single swipe of the thumb? To some, that question is all-important in deciding whether this could ever potentially threaten the mouse for PC shooters.
