So I have come to realize that Diablo III was not meant to be just played using a Keyboard and mouse, but also a controller as well! Yesterday while playing my buddy and I came up with the idea of using PS3 controllers we had laying around. We downloaded a couple programs and setup our buttons and started hacking and slashing!
First impressions was that of an old super mario
brothers 3 gameplay. As I repeated hell mode all the way
through and beat Diablo (in Hell Difficulty) and became
comfortable with the controller setup it became second
nature. The only issues I have is with wondering cursor
if I lose track of what I'm doing. Other than that it
works so much better than keyboard and mouse setup IMO,
your opinion may differ though, but I like it! I think
it's worth a try!
Just do a google search for these programs and use them to get a PS3 controller to work with Diablo 3.
Here are the controls I use as well, you can always choose whatever you like, but these work great for me:
My controls are as follows for my Barbarian:
See Video in action of using the controller:
On a lazy day I am definitely going to be grinding some Diablo III monsters from the comfort of my bed.
And sorry, I do not provide any installation or troubleshooting issues associated with this! Just letting you know it's possible and the programs I personally used to get it to work.
Also, for a lot of interesting strategies and stuff for
Diablo 3 I recommend getting
Diablo 3 Billionaire, there is a small price for it but
