I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Hi,

I have one hand. I also like video games, but due to the aforementioned one-handedness I have to verify control schemes on games I buy before I buy them. I want to play either Dishonored or Thief next, but I wanted some insight on how possible that would be with limited use of the r-trigger and bumper. Here's a guideline to help you understand where I'm at.

I've beaten Halo 1 and 2 on legendary with southpaw controls. I've been playing through Assassin's Creed 1- 3 with regular controls. I played Bioshock 1 and 2 with southpaw, (Dishonored seems to follow a similar model of ability/weapon combat) but I really didn't enjoy Bioshock: Infinite when the southpaw controls weren't offered. I had tons of trouble with Mass Effect and Dark Souls, to the point where I couldn't effectively play either. Hopefully that gives you some insight into what I can and can't handle in console gaming.

Any insight into if these games offer alternate control schemes or if they'd be doable based off the benchmarks I just laid out? I'd be playing both on the Xbox 360. Thanks.

I haven't played either, sorry. But if people like you don't inspire developers to include customizable controller setups, I don't know what will.

I just wanted to say yo. I am known to play videos games with an extra keyboard on the floor for me to use with my feet. It is nice to have you here at GR.

It doesn't sound like you are a pc gamer though so I do not have much advice for alternative controls schemes. Sorry.
