The HammerHead FX, though inexplicably tied to 3dfx in some sort of nebulous marketing deal, is an InterAct pad that hopes to end console controller envy with one fell swoop by giving you two analog controllers, a digital pad, six buttons, two triggers, and biggest of all, rumble feedback. Otherwise it’ll wipe out the settings. As for the buttons, I prefer to use the top ones as R1-L2, the first two buttons on in each row as the buttons it makes them close eqivilents of the PSX ones , and the last 1 in each row for start and select. With the world bowing to 3D, it’s about time that someone on the PC side of things put out a gamepad that provided the same analog options as our console cousins have had for years now. I don’t have any reason to suspect home would behave any differently, but you never know. I actually like the extra weight and size, especially after dealing for years with undersized, tiny, finger-mashing controllers.
