Vibration - Turn controller vibration on or off

Aim Assist - Gives a very momentary lock on an enemy if the general center of your screen has a visible enemy in it.

Melee Assist - Similar with Aim Assist, Centers the screen for a moment on the enemy directly in front of you.

Search Animations - Turn the search and gather animations on or off

Important: During the first few times of gathering or skinning, it is okay to leave this on. However after a while, the animation will get annoying and possibly get you in trouble. So turn this off after you've seen the animations or turn it off outright.

Story Recaps - Gives you a recap of the story so Far. You can turn this off if you want but it is okay to leave it on because you have an option to skip the scene. Unlike Search Animations where you cannot skip the animation.
