Hollow Knight uses the dpad for movement, and that controller has a completely nonfunctional dpad.
>>
>>454612828
Hollow Knight can use the stick or the dpad for movement, anon. And frankly using a stick is way more comfy.
>>
>>454611847
Silksong will probably end up easier than base Hollow Knight, simply because of the movement options.
But I think any future content for Silksong will probably end up being Godmaster difficulty.
That will probably subject us to ridiculous shit like fighting The Shade Lord as a multi-stage boss-fight where the last stage is Little Ghost but with all of their shade abilities.

Of course you actually need to beat Hive Knight to get the charm and you can't equip it straight away, so that passive is neat but not altogether that useful unless you've missed the grub inside The Hive.

> Implying that the Dualshock 4 isn't a terrible controller

Whenever I hear someone say that the DS4 has a good d-pad it immediately makes me think they're a zoomer that grew up on the xbox 360. Because the 360 is pretty much the only controller with a worse dpad than a dualshock.
>>
>>454614502
I play mostly on analog stick. I'm no speedrunner but it just feels more natural than a dpad these days. You lose some responsiveness but the movement in the game is so fluid that you can still maneuver well.
I'll still switch to pad for really precise shit like the palace of anal pain or small hit-box bosses.
>>
>>454614916
The main drawback of the stick is fucking Dashmaster launching you down if you're just a tiny bit too far down.

They both work fine but I find that it's very difficult to up/down hit with a stick, and that's a very important move that you're going to have to master. I would suggest using the dpad for more precision.

Xbone dpad is a bit too stiff for my tastes, still better than almost anything else, but it's like they overcompensated for how bad the 360 dpad was. Some of the Japanese dpads for older Nintendo consoles are just fucking atrocious. Constant mis-registers.

The d-pad on the Wii U tablet controller was actually pretty great. One of the best I've used. In fact, that controller was actually surprisingly decent. Much more ergonomic than the Switch

Nintendo dpads are generally good, I wasn't trying to dispute that at all. I've used plenty of SFC controllers with just awful dpads though.

The switch controller fucking sucks. The sticks are imprecise, feel cheap, the other buttons have so much noise when you press them as if they'd break at any minute.
So unconfortable to hold too. Only good point is playing with my hands separated from one another.

>>454614916
For games that have only 4 cardinal inputs the D-Pad is obviously better.
However when combined inputs are also a thing (diagonal directions for example), I've always felt most d-pads are uncomfortable for the thumb to switch quickly between simple button presses and 2-button presses, which is strange because that's not usually a problem with the "action" buttons on the right. I guess it's just how they're designed.
So for those cases, like pogoing while moving in a direction, I find the simplicity of input the stick gives you better, even if you exchange some precision for it.

Arguably, the keyboard is the superior option because you get access to easy/comfortable combined inputs while keeping all of the precision.

Why did the Hollow Knight grow so huge but you stayed smol?
>>
>>454627547
Because he was trained and raised to prime form, whereas the Knight stayed locked up in the Abyss and then aimlessly wandered around outside of Hallownest, devoid of memory and mind. The Lost Kin is also noticeably larger than you, so he's probably a Vessel "teenager".

>>
>>454634173
>>454613026
The other thing is, will Hornet have a shade dash? Could be argued she shouldn't because she's not a sibling/ghost/shade. If not it could make some bosses harder, not being able to just dodge straight through their attacks is a big change. But of course, the silksong bosses wouldn't be designed to have that in the way that the traitor lord is designed for you to have the shade cloak.

Well she does get a counter move which works as a replacement to Descending Dark for i-frames, but it starts up much faster. Plenty of people forget or didn't realize that you could dodge though any attack with the dive spell. Hornet does have a normal air dash in the trailer, but we'll have to see if there is any i-frames or an upgrade to it.
