Check out what others have to say about Adamote.
If you want a controller to use for your PC games, then this is the way to go. I snagged this to use with Skyrim and it works great. I was so used to play Skyrim on the PS3 and when I picked up a copy for the PC to play with all the great mods I was really put off by the keyboard/mouse combination. Made it almost impossible to play because I’m not use to that.
It only took a few minutes to get everything set up. If you’re playing an open world game like Skyrim, practice your controls outside of town. Learned this the hard way when I accidentally killed an NPC. The controller is way better than the keyboard and mouse. Best part about this was that I was already comfortable with the design of the PS3 controller so I didn’t have to worry about getting used to a different design or button layout with a commercial PC controller. Love this thing – it’s well worth the price and works perfectly as advertised.
I was really impressed with this. Not only is the price decent but it made my multiplayer games so much more enjoyable. Nothing is better than sitting back on my futon and playing Borderlands. I’m a huge steam user so I’ve got a lot of PC games that never got as much face time because I preferred my PS3. I expect to be putting a lot more time into PC gaming – which is perfect considering the new release of Battlefield 4 and COD Ghosts!
We’ve only got one TV in our living room and my kids love playing Wii. This has always been a burden when my wife and I want a movie night but the kids are having a Twilight Princess or Mario marathon. I was looking up emulators to run the Wii games on the PC so the kids could take their gaming to office. Found some great ones but there was always the issue of the controller. This was the perfect device and was way cheaper than investing in another TV. Now in the evenings they’re here in my office on the Wii and my wife and I were able to reclaim the living room.
This has got to be the best invention for PC gamers. Naturally most PC games are designed to play better with the keyboard and mouse but sometimes even that is flawed. Arkham City is what made me crazy. The controls just didn’t feel tight to me and I was getting fed up. I played it on PS3 at a friends house and loved the game. I went with the PC version thinking I’d have a better visual experience. After a few hours of this I went back looking for a PC controller that resembled the PS3 – everything was blocky and ugly. The guy at Best Buy recommended the Adamote so I ordered and had it shipped. Came quickly and the set up was super easy. After the quick config and syncing my PS3 controller I was stunned – it was just like playing the PS3. I even tested it on my Linux box for shoots and giggles and it worked!
I love this thing. It does exactly what it says and without issues. I was impressed with how fast it was syncing. My only complaint is that the first one I received just wouldn’t connect at all. Turns out it was damaged in shipping (the box was crushed when I got it.) I contacted their support department and they sent me out a new one immediately at no cost. Customer service was super friendly.
I’m an old school gamer from the days of Doom and Wolfenstein. W,A,S,D and mouse is how we do it. I’ve tried PC controllers and absolutely hate how cheap they are. There’s really no alternative I like which is why I stick with keyboard+mouse. My brother got me one of these and a Ps3 gamepad for my birthday and swore by it so I thought I would give it a try. I don’t own a PS3, I’m a PC gamer through and through, but I was impressed with how the controller felt and responded with this device. If I had known about this I would have picked one up years ago. I don’t use it for every game because I still like the mouse+keyboard combo but it’s great for some games, especially if I want to just lean back in my chair and relax instead of being hunched over the keyboard. Great product!
