Steam Controller and FPS: PAX East 2015 impressions

‘A little rumbly’

Recommended Videos

One of what was seemingly the better-kept secrets at PAX East 2015, the Steam Controller, was available for hands on at the Alienware booth connected to the company’s Steam Machines.

I was able to test the previous iteration of the controller the year before with Mewgenics, a game that’s more mouse based, but this year, I finally got to try it out with a first-person shooter — Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

I will note that I did not try to change any configuration items for the controller, as it was the first real public hands on with the finished controllers so I’d imagine Alienware and Valve would have made sure it was set up properly.
