Modded Controllers: Evil D-Pad
Evil Controllers is known for making modded controllers, but for those of you that have been monitoring our Twitter and Facebook know. We do a lot more then just rapid fire and auto burst controller mods. We do controller upgrades that increase a player's gaming potential by making their movements more accurate or by relocating buttons to improve their strategic options in game.
Our Evil D-Pad was released last year on October 23rd and gamers loved it. So for those of you that haven't updated your controllers to our new Evil D-Pad check out what others have said.
Evil Controllers has devised a workaround to the dreaded Xbox 360 d-pad, which could be interesting to a lot of people. Unlike the original pad, which is a mushy mess (or the redesigned one, which is merely an elevated mushy mess), Evil's solution is to do away with the d-pad entirely and replace it with four discrete buttons. It's a little like the N64's c-button cluster, only these are bigger and are on the left side.
I recently had a chance to spend some decent gameplay time with the latest creation from Evil Controllers, their Evil D-Pad for Xbox 360. I was really surprised at how well the controller not only felt but also functioned in a wide variety of games
"This D-pad mod is great for Xbox Live Arcade games, particularly 2D fighters like Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and 2D platformers like Super Meat Boy and Mega Man 9 and 10. But for me it has proven invaluable in more complex RPGs which use the directional buttons as hotkeys. Ive been playing a lot of Fallout: New Vegas lately, and the Evil D-Pad has improved my experience with the game more than I ever thought it could."
More important then any of these, is what do you guys think? Are you enjoying your new Evil D-Pad?
