Re: Random natterings

Haha, holy crap. I just came back from an the most comically awkward date. After trying to get anything resembling a conversation starting for about half an hour, I ran out of topics and didn't get much in terms of help carrying the conversation from my partner, so then we just looked at each other ...

So I've never been very good at taking selfies. In 99 cases out of 100, my pictures don't turn out very good. Which was frustrating because the pictures turned out so much worse than what I see in my mirror. So I've done a bunch of research, and practiced a ton, and I think I'm beginning to see prog...

Yeah. It's a weird series like that.

I played Dark Souls 1 first. Took me 40 hours. I easily spent half those hours on the first 10% of the game, then another 10 hours on a hard boss toward the middle.

I haven't tried doing any configuration with mine yet. Thought I've only used it on a few games. And they worked just fine without any intervention on my part. But I do really like it.

Re: Gaming fleeting thoughts

You can use it with any game, although you have to launch the game through steam to be able to configure it, which is pretty important since the controller caters to so many different types of games. For example of a wonky but usable case, I've used the Steam Controller to play Fallout 1, which I go...

Re: Suicide Squad: You've gotta be Joker

Yeah. The first impressions I'd read were all super-negative, but then I went and watched the film with low expectations, and was positively surprised. Probably won't win any Oscars, but it wasn't bad, at least not by comic book adaptation standards.
