I picked up the Logitech. Funnily enough, Vista installs it as an "XBox360 Controller"  smirk

While it's great driving with either the gamepad or the left thumbstick, I never have been good at aiming precisely with a console controller thumbstick and so far that's still the Achille's Hill for me here. But I think I can live with it. It's as if I need a half-controller so that I can move with a thumbstick but aim with the mouse.  icon_neutral Even with a gamepad installed, you can actually use your mouse to aim during the opening hovercrafts sequence. Once it switches to vehicle though, mouse aiming's off.

Also, I'd been complaining about figuring out the orientation of some of the vehicles (what's the front?), and with a gamepad, the game seems to have this little illuminated ring around your vehicle that blinks a bit when moving forward. It definitely didn't when I was using keys.
============
Just finished Mission 9 with a pickup group. I see now the ramps where I got lost. And with a gamepad it's a lot less frustrating.  icon_smile I actually wish that map was longer though. We finished it in about 15 minutes and some of the earlier missions felt a lot more epic than that.

*I can't finish Mission 5 solo (Normal difficulty) to save my life. I just wish the timers were a bit more generous there. I'm definitely doing much, much better with the gamepad on it though. Just can't quite slug my way through everything in time to reach various timed objectives.

Glad you like the controller man!  You'll get better with the driving/shooting!

btw, apparently the game only supports "5.1" or basic sound. Some players using speakers or USB headsets with "7.1" sound are having a lot of crashing problems.
http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2203072
Quote
It's not specifically the g35 [USB headphones], although I am using one myself, it's the fact that you're trying to use 7.1 audio when the game only supports stereo or possibly 5.1. Instead of just using lower quality within the game, it freaks out and crashes.

If you have the ability to manually change to stereo or 5.1 mode in your computer settings, or swap to a different set of audio hardware you can solve the crash.

I however have no other options available at the moment and I refuse to use onboard audio. Hopefully they will release a fix for this, but I'm not planning on it. The last 3 games to have this issue never patched it because it wasn't widespread enough for them to care.
So I guess if you're using a fancy speaker system, USB headsets or a "real" soundcard, it might have issues.

I don't get the impression they tested this game on a wide variety of PC systems -- yeah yeah, the beauty of consoles. icon_smile

I have one of those fancy 5.1 surround sound set ups, lol!

Personally I would just spend the extra $4 and get the official one unless you really want the more PS3-like setup of the Logitech one.  Say what you will about Microsoft, but the 360 controller is really high quality and would probably be my favorite gamepad ever. 

The Official 360 controller was like $60 bucks or so, when I bought this one...

I believe Mission 9 is the last mission. The menu has a "downloadable content" listing, so hopefully further missions are in the cards. I don't pretend to think it's going to sell a zillion copies on Steam, esp. given all the complaints about keyboard driving (the Steam forum is full of that), but hopefully it'll sell enough on all platforms to justify some DLC.

We should try hardcore mode at some point. I probably wouldn't last long with fewer lives to spare, since I frequently go driving off cliffs to my doom.  icon_razz

I guess I'll have to order some gamepad online. The only thing I've seen in stores is the expensive wireless MS XBox360ish controller for Windows, which seems overkill for me.
I got mine at Best Buy for like $20-$25 bucks

Hey team, my cable modem crapped out last night and I couldn't back online at all until this morning.  icon_frown They added some sort of 135MB patch yesterday. Not real clear what it does. I didn't have problems but the forums had some complaints of new problems since this patch. The European Steam bud I convinced to get this said he had black screens and freezing at startup. Not using his headset, and making some other adjustments lets him at least play the game now, but he says he's still having intermitten freezes.

Self-observations:
-Perhaps I really am gonna have to get a gamepad. In the more cramped, Pac-Man maze like maps, I just can't steer with a keyboard precisely enough -- it gets upsetting. I'm fine on the more wide open stuff. I'd liken it to trying to drive your car if the steering wheel was the size of the average donut. You'd be able to drive in tight circles spectacularly. With any semblance of precision? No.  icon_razz While I appreciate it recommends gamepads, I've played other overhead driving games not this touchy/clumsy on a keyboard, so I just question whether Sega even ever bothered to test it on a keyboard at all.

-Using helicopters is so much more fun on the keyboard (however, it's not in "tank" mode, so it takes some adjustment if you're using that mode for vehicles) -- if there's DLC, I hope they add some more chopper-only missions.  icon_cool

-I HATE Mission 9's map. In addition to being a cramped maze (see above), the, moving, boiling lava pot things are pretty much impossible to avoid using a keyboard (alternative is to patiently blast them all but it spills lava everywhere). It also uses tiered ramps and sometimes the map's so dark I can't even tell if something's a ramp or not. I would've followed Mirage but he and my teammates were already on the far side of the map and I couldn't figure out how to get there so I just left since there was no way for me to contribute.

To my mind, if they wanna start layering ramps upon themselves and having sections that are connected but don't look that way on the map (or that look connected on the map but you can't reach them), they shoulda found a way to do a "wire frame" 3D map so you could at least visually tell from the map what you needed to do. I don't think I'm gonna do that mission again until I find a way to print a map of it, and maybe mark it up a bit in such a way I understand how to get from one section to the other.

My ranting about M9 aside, I mostly quite enjoy Missions 1-8, even on replays.  icon_smile

No problem man!  I was wondering what happened to ya?  I bought a wired 360 style gamepad last year for some game that I bought on Steam, I think it was Shank.  It was less than $20, made by Logitech and it's actually good!  I've played a couple of other games like this style that one stick moves the machine and the other stick fires the weapon.  Assault Heroes and Gatling Gears are 2 of them.  I hate Mission 9 as well man, but if you get a gamepad, maybe we can all get past it and see what's next, if anything?  nod

Judging from the Steam forums, most folks have given up on the game and are demanding refunds, which I'd assume Steam can do as long as the game hasn't officially released yet (ha ha).

The guy running Sega's Twitter page said he's visiting the forums and passing along feedback but he's not really in any position (i.e., he's just a grunt employee doing Twitter updates) to do or announce anything.

I don't want a prematurely released game, but announcing and rescinding a release date almost weekly is pretty ridiculous. It's like Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown over and over and over.  disgust If the game needs that much more optimizing, just set a release date far enough back to allow for any sort of setback, and be done with it.
