Weekend Confirmed 112 - Tera, The Walking Dead, Assassin's Creed 3

By Garnett Lee, May 11, 2012 11:00am PDT

Tera has been stealing sleep from Jeff, and is trying to lure Garnett into its clutches as well. They discuss the new MMORPG's action combat that arguably favors a controller over keyboard with "Indie" Jeff and Christian. Like the zombies in the game, The Walking Dead comes back for another week, and not to be outdone, there are more zombie good times with Brainsss. The new Assassin's Creed 3 trailer's in-game action left everyone stoked for the prospects of being in the thick of the American Revolution. And there's time for a few more things before Finishing Moves wraps it all up.

  • Maybe I'm completely crazy, but it really bugs me how much people go on and on about sticks being the "correct" way to play fighting games. I have never enjoyed using one, and doubt I ever will. Maybe it's because I didn't go to many arcades when I was younger, or maybe I am just "wrong", but I find a controller much, much, MUCH more comfortable and precise when I use it. That rings true for shooters and other games (most notably, Dragon Age Origins) on the PC as well.

    Maybe the games ARE developed with a specific control scheme in mind, but I simply prefer a pad over anything else. I don't like clicking mouse buttons to shoot a gun, I like pulling a trigger. And I don't like looking down on my party from an isometric perspective and using a hotbar to issue commands, I like using the radial menu and face buttons with a traditional third-person camera.

    It's not that I am in any way against these other methods of playing the game(s), I just can't stand this notion that there are "correct" ways to play them. Granted, Garnett never used that word in reference to Skullgirls, but it still triggered that same bit of annoyance in my head.

    Anyway, Congratulations Christian!
