    Hello, hello - this is probably in the wrong place since it's more of a technology question.

    I've just downloaded Mirror's Edge on PC since I just got it with the Origin Humble Bundle ... I'll be playing on laptop but was wondering what's the best way to play this - with a game pad or just the good ol' WASD?

    Sorry if it's a stupid question, but I cba to set up my game pad... Just seeing if I can be lazy and just use a keyboard...

    Keyboard and mouse all day, everyday
    It hasn't failed me, apart from on fifa which can really mess up my co-ordination

    Just had a quick run of it there, my small hands can't really reach shift when needs be so might have to set it something else, but definitely felt more accurate and fun with the keyboard and mouse

    Thanks for the reply!

    While I can see where you're coming from, ME definitely feels like a game that benefits from an actual controller. My friend from uni definitely fits into the "PC gaming master race" stereotype but ended up buying a controller specifically for Mirrors Edge :P

    I suppose some games need them, fifa certainly does

    I gave in and plugged in a controller - can play it much smoother and it is a ton easier! It can be done with keyboard and mouse, but... so much easier with a controller.
