Hey, all. Small rant here. Recently got to experience some of 'The Final Station'. Overall it's really good! However, it does have the silly thing of if I just *touch* the left analog stick, the character starts drifting to the left. I mean, this is a big game -- but this happens more often than I can believe. The character drifts to the left in 'Headlander' as well. That's a Double Fine game!

I don't understand how big companies can build all this stuff *around* the game -- and not make sure that the game itself plays well. "But Mike, " you say. "Why don't you just buy a new controller?" Very good question. The thing is -- I have. Many times. Granted I don't have a brand new controller, but the fact that it's a few months old doesn't mean I should throw it away. Games should not require brand new 'fresh out the box' controllers to function properly. Sometimes you buy a new controller and it STILL doesn't solve the problem.

You know what *good* game do? You know what should be in EVERY FREAKING GAME as a matter of norm? Deadzone settings. Just set the deadzone to what you desire and you're fine. I don't understand how this isn't a STANDARD feature in games yet. This is just silly.

Shovel Knight, Fenix Rage, Khimera: Destroy All Monster Girls, Mini Falafel Adventure. No drifting in any of those. Also, AM2R -- which I JUST finished playing -- has a deadzone setting. No drifting in that either. Yet ANOTHER reason why I love that game. *hugs a plush metroid and a Zero Suit Samus dakimakura*

There will be deadzone settings in my game. Not everyone has brand new controllers. Just sayin'.



Rant over. >_<
