I hadn't considered it. I thought this was more of a platformer. I'll take a look.

I've played all of the PS3 Ratchet and Clank games. Unless you have a disability that impairs the use of the DualShock controller, there's no real reason for a ST.

There's loads of auto-aim in the R&C franchise - while it can be turned off, the turn-speed is really slow and using m/kb in a platformer makes things more difficult than need be.

I'm terrible at console shooters using a controller, but I've got the Platinum trophy for all R&C games. That speaks volumes for the game's DualShock controls, which are more than adequate to make up for my clumsy thumbs.

While all of that is true this is one of those games that I'd want an ST so I could hook up a controller through Xim instead of mouse and play with a thumbstick and smoothed out aim mechanic. Besides slow turn speed and time based acceleration the game has the problem of the deadzone taking up half of the stick area and then you have a steep acceleration curve. Any aim correction and precision aiming has to entirely be done with strafing.

Yeah, the dead zone t is the reason I want an ST.  I can deal with the slow turn speed with a curve but the dead zone is just terrible.
