Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
A few years ago, wired 360 controllers were really the best choice as PC gamepads go. The D-pad sucked, though, and mine's starting to break, so I thought I'd ask: Are 360 pads still the best choice? Are there any available with improved D-pads? Are there any really good offerings from third parties these days?
For better or worse, it seems like the 360 pad has a sort of monopoly on in-game support since so many multiplatform titles were built around it in the first place. Trying to do dragon punches with it can be real frustrating, though.
