    Steam controllers take a bit of getting used to, but honestly I think they're a must have for any console gamer who likes to do some PC gaming here and there. Fortunately most games already have various community keymaps available to use or start with and customize to your liking.

    I had a spare PS4 controller which I traded in for the steam controller over the weekend. My right hand is constantly looking for that analog stick haha. It is going to take some getting use to!

    So mad right now. Original delivery date for the controller was Wednesday. Got a tracking notice last night that it was at the Canada Post centre last night which meant it would be out for delivery today. So that was awesome. Stepped out for 5 minutes this morning ....and missed the delivery. They left a notice that it will be available for pick-up tomorrow after 1pm.

    Ended up being able to pick it up tonight. Got the custom settings installed and played around with it for a bit. It's definitely going to take some getting use to. While I'm not a huge fan of it's design, I think I will most definitely prefer it to KB/M.

    I tried left 4 dead 2 with it and it plays well. The touch pad replacing the analog stick will take some practice though. Hoping to try Borderlands 2 with the controller on steam link soon.

    Getting more use to the controller, it's taking time but I'm getting there. Has a great level of customization.

    It's taken longer than expected to get it setup for Arma, but considering the bonkers number of controls for the game it's been worth it.

    This game is even deeper than I expected. You can get lost in that damn editor trying to create custom missions and never actually play it. If Battlefield has gone too far over to the CoD side of gaming, then this might be what you are looking for, especially if you are in Europe. Seems to be massive with European gamers.

    Did you know you can set the touch pad on the controller to behave like analog stick for FPS or a mouse for RPG's or other games that is best played with a mouse. Not used it in game yet but saw it on a video review.
