Surely you must have a PS3 controller or something you can hook up to it? There's things you can install that makes most controllers work with just a USB cable Doesn't need to be one made specifically for the PC
It's still doable with keyboard, and it's a great game so definitely give it a shot Will just take some time getting used to (It's mostly the camera controls that's terrible, but I believe they brought out a fix for it).
You haven't thought this through very much, have you? Lets put it in easier turns. Game controller = keyboard turning in wow. Your max camera adjustment, or aiming, or ability to move and spin is capped by whatever the inherent max speed is set to. It is leaps and bounds less precise than a mouse and keyboard, to the point where any game out there that is 1st person, or 3rd person with separate movement and camera abilities (like DS) is played far more effectively with a kbm combo.
There are game types that are better for a controller. This ain't it.
TL;DR - bad port, no cookie.

OT: Still loving this game. Definitely worth the purchase and then some.

I see this is now on Sale for £20 on Steam. Now that a bit of time has passed since release, does anyone know if there are enough mods/fixes to warrant a purchase yet or is it still a bit of a mess?
Dark Souls for the PC is amazing, played it to death and loved every second. Personally used a controller and the resolution fix, can't vouch for modded KB+M controls.
Besides, I am fine with some games being better suited to a console, or at least played with a controller like Cave Story and Super Meat Boy, I am not OK with games having crappy graphics and locked resolutions at launch, or watered down textures because the developers didn't want to require 25 GB installs for games like Rage on the PC and using console limitations as an excuse for not releasing the PC version with superior textures.
