Found a wall in my travels. Was reminded that walls make things great. Keeps Mongolians out of China. The Germans were Nazis before their wall. When they tore it down, Soviet fell. It's also a good Pink Floyd album.

Re: 2016 in review

Dark Souls 3, X-COM 2, and Factorio are probably my real highlights. Played and loved the hell out of all three.

Overwatch was fun in that annoying sort of blizzardy way where you kinda rage a bit too much and eventually shrivel into an embittered husk of mostly salt.

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.

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...
