View Full Version : Full controller support and Steam Big Picture Mode

02-28-2013, 04:32 AM
I recently started using Steam big picture mode. It has actually reinvigorated my interest in gaming, to the point it is now directly affecting my purchases on Steam.

The reason is that I can now play the games on a much better display, with often much better graphics (compared to a console version) and with much better (5.1) sound. As important, it also makes it more comfortable and a lot easier and accessible to play with other people, which is exactly what has happened since.

To the point: The Banner Saga is my most anticipated title of 2013 so far. I think I am not alone in this. I also think that I'm not alone in having the same experience of Steam Big Picture mode, and many more will in the coming months and after the inevitable launch of the steam box.

So please implement Full controller support for The Banner Saga at release for steam, don't wait 6-12 months later when a console port is done. Why? Because TBS is is perfect for controller input, and I will hold off playing it until full controller support is in place, which just makes it cruel!

I really like this idea, even though I wouldn't personally use it. This game feels like it could be adapted for a controller fairly well, and it would only open new doors for a playerbase.

Curious about this.. Wouldn't it work with Xpadder?

Any response to this, Stoic?
Please make it happen soon. You could try it out on faction first..
