Evil Controllers, the leading developers of modified controllers, has just announced the Evil D-Pad. For almost 5 years Microsoft has left gamers with an impotent directional pad. A D-Pad so worthless most gamers stopped using it altogether (unless they had to), but that didn’t mean game designers had. At Evil Controllers the mad scientists have made their decision to step up to the plate. From then on Evil Controllers was on a mission, and their redesign promises that all of your inputs are 100% accurate. This controller modification transforms the D-Pad to the core of what it is. 4 buttons. The simplicity of it’s design allows gamers to avoid errors made using the traditional axis D-pad to ensure only their intended inputs are registered. If your an Xbox gamer and you plan on dominating on COD: Black Ops then I don’t know how you don’t use this controller, at least until they ban them or something :).
The problem with the D-Pad on the stock 360 controller is that they’ve got one big button to push four separate ones. As a result, your accuracy isn’t solely in your hands, but in the design of your controller. By removing the axis that typically connects the 4 directional inputs, Evil Controllers has designed a new controller that is truly a new way to play. No more accidental gun swaps, no more accidental leaps in Street Fighter, no more accidents. Period. With this controller your accuracy is fully rewarded. The Evil D-Pad uses point to point player contact with the benefit of absolute precision.
The Evil D-Pad is incredible for first and third-Person shooters, allowing basic maneuvers to be pulled off flawlessly every time. In fighting games the Evil D-Pad’s design works as it should, diagonals are activated by pressing two directional buttons at the same time, and thanks to absence of the axis design, player’s precise inputs will be rewarded with accurate outcomes every time. While the Evil Ambassadors (our interns) can’t agree on everything, there is one thing they all believe unanimously, “Shoryukens have never been easier.” It seems like this controller is a must have, but anyone who owns one you tell us, is it as good as it sounds?
