I am going to be buying Halo for my Mac soon.. what do you all suggest is the best way to play it? mouse? controller? or none of the above just using the trackpad and keyboard?

Mouse and keyboard beats controller by a long shot in first person shooters.

Don't use the trackpad though, because then the controller wins :bomb:

We're talking Halo part 1. It's still an old game.

Halo 1 is the best, i've been playing it for years.

I used to play on my PC with this:



I was dying to try it on my macbook pro once my desktop died, but for some reason even though i installed the mac software it still wouldn't actually work. Maybe i did something wrong because it's supposed to work on mac. But if you can get a hold of one of this nostromo speedpad and get it to work i would highly recommend it, it really helped my game. You can customize every key for each game you play and it's got 2 adjustments to fit your hand.


As far as the mouse, i found with halo a simple 3 button cord mouse gives better performance than my 8 button laser mouse.

That is sick! where did you get that, Cherry? I've seen similar products, that looks like one I'd acutally want to buy.

I try to refrain from such purchases as it only enables my bad gaming habit. Oh well, resistance is futile!

I got mine here, but then i found out it's cheaper on newegg.
I remember for a long time belkin was completely sold out of the n52, but it looks like they have it again.
