What made you start using a Xim?
« on: 01:52 AM - 12/03/19 »
I assume everyone's reasoning is one of the following:

Disability/condition causing issues with using a controller

Used to play on PC, want to use the same peripherals on a console

Just wanted to try a mouse for more accuracy

Mine's the first one. I have carpal tunnel in my right thumb and it's been causing me discomfort when using the right analog stick for quite some time, to the point it was actually off-putting. I was pretty close to giving up gaming, I was whining about the issue to a fellow gamer friend and he suggested maybe trying a Xim as he knows Soadman (battle royale streamer) uses one due to arthritis and does really well with it. Wasn't keen on using a keyboard, I've got big hands and I just find it really awkward, but after looking into Xim anyway I noticed a lot of people were using nunchuck-type controllers instead of a keyboard which really appealed to me as a lifelong controller gamer, so I gave it a go. Been a week and a half now and I consider it an incredibly worthwhile purchase, the carpal tunnel doesn't interfere with my gaming at all and once your settings are dialled in the accuracy is so good.

Anyway, there's my dear diary, what's your story?
