I've played through Dungeon Siege 3's demo, and I couldn't ever get a good handle on the movement controls; I found movement cumbersome, and (no doubt to weeks of playing League of Legends) kept expecting Q to activate my abilities (it toggled my stance instead).

It's clear from the demo that the game was developed for a console control scheme; I have a USB Gamepad that I bought to play Super Meat Boy -- is it possible to play Dungeon Siege 3 with a Gamepad as well?

Note: Applies to Demo only. The full game appears to require xbox360 controllers!!

Originally, I had attempted to plug in my USB gamepad while the Dungeon Siege 3 demo was already running; this did not allow me to play the game with the gamepad. However, today I tried again, but this time plugged in the gamepad before running the program, and it allowed me to use the gamepad for everything.

So yes, Dungeon Siege 3 is wholly compatible with USB gamepads.

Hi can you tell me what gamepad you are using? – user10477 Jun 18 '11 at 0:14
@Henry I believe it's an F310 Gamepad by Logitech – Raven Dreamer Jun 18 '11 at 0:24
