    steam (linux) + xbox 360 controller (using xboxdrv) + euro truck simulator 2 = rather tasty. no more stabbing wildly at the arrow keys. no more looking around using the mouse. most of the controls can be mapped to the controller’s many buttons. some might think it’s a bit odd using an MS controller on […]
