Really getting into Borderlands 2. The only minus is the special lootbox gimmick, which makes the game easier and is difficult not to dip into, because oooooooooo dem sexy guns!

Controller: 8bitDo SN30 Pro+
Rating of Fury: B+

Edit: dropped the rating from A to B+ because some of my consoles wont play nice with the controller. Windows 10 and Rasperry Pi works great, others not so much. Wrote up a whole thinger about it and lost it :roll:

Edit Edit:
What works-
Windows 10 games and services (Steam/Epic/Origin/GOG)
Raspberry Pi Emulation Station (multiple retro emulators)
Chromebook (Chrome OS 88.0.4324.186, game: NBA Jam)
Android (Google Pixel 4XL, Android 11 "Red Velvet Cake", game: Asphalt 9)

What doesn't work (easily, without the 8bitDo dongle, or not at all) -
Xbox 360
Sony PSX official retro console
Nintendo NES official retro console

more to come as I test away

I'm thinking of getting a Switch, but I have no desire to carry it around or cramp my hands on joypads build for toddlers. Plus, my recent purchase of a Google Stadia Pro controller was bittersweet since you currently can't use it on anything but Goodle Stadia :evil: :evil: :evil: so I needed a good wireless PC controller. In comes the next in a line of third-party button mashing offerings, the *inhales* 8bitDo SN30 Pro+

The SN30 Pro+ comes in three pleasantly bland colors, and black is one of them.

Resembling an upgraded PS2 controller with the joysticks in the CORRECT configuration, this sucker cost me $50 on Amazon, so it better be good. It came partially charged. It can be used with the included USB cable as a wired controller and Windows 10 immediately recognized it. I then went to 8bitDo's website to upgrade the firmware and download the manual other tweaking goodies. Smooth sailing so far.

Turned on my PCs bluetooth. Effortlessly paired it to the controller. The controller has rumble. Fired up the Steam game OMORI. Worked flawlessly. Comfortable to use and 'feels' good.

The SN30 Pro+ is also compatible (stated compatible, I haven't tried these yet) with the NIntendo Switch, Playstation consoles going back to the PS3, XBox One, Windows 10, Android, Pi, and older Apple IOS's, and possibly, possibly, other non-bluetooth systems using a not-included-in-the-package bluetooth dongle. Not bad... other reviewers have minor complaints about the D-pad and not being able to power up their Switches from this controller, but these haven't affected me so I can't agree or disagree. The D-pad works fine for me so far.

The controller uses a lithium battery much like a cell phone battery and it's replaceable, unlike a certain company's $60 controllers that you have to toss when they're dead *koffSONYkoff*. With the Windows tweaking software you can macro and fine tune controller actions to a level that I consider geekish pedantry. And oh yeah, there's a TURBO button.

I'm happy with the controller despite it's mouthful of a name and the $50 price tag, which is still ~$10 cheaper than official controllers. If you have a bluetoothed PC, I recommend picking one or two of these up. Do your research, but I think this controller will be a hit with Switch, android, and retro console users too. Obviously, gimmick games that use touchpads or gyros won't work with the SN30 Pro+. but otherwise this is a very good controller, especially if you can find them on sale.

After nearly 10 years of getting bored midway and murdering everyone on the the continent, I finally beat the main quest in Skyrim.

I was so proud of myself that I stood atop High Hrothgar and shouted the most manly of Shouts, calling the thunderstorm for a backdrop and posing my manliest pose as I watched my horse get struck by lightning and lifelessly tumble down the mountain.

To make matters worse, I fast traveled to Whiterun and the storm traveled with me. The blacksmith's daughter got hit by lighting and took offense for some reason. She and those turncoat guards attacked me (they were hailing me seconds before wtf), so long story short I ended up murdering everyone on the continent again.

Donut County
Rating of Fury: A+

A goofy little game you can finish in one setting, Donut County tells the story of a raccoon that destroys his town with a digital version of Acme's Instant Hole.

Lots of family friendly humor, easy to play (up until the boss fight! :shock:), clever mechanics, and FREE on Xbox Game Pass, this game is a winner.

Animal Crossing:

Started playing casually over the last few nights, and I'm running around bug collecting. I see the silhouette of a stinkbug on a stump and I swipe my net at it.

Missed. So I reposition myself and swipe again. Missed. Bug's still there.

Surprised the bug didn't fly away, I check my inventory to see if i have a fresh net (maybe mine was about to break?). The bugs on my inventory, partially.

I run through flowerbeds and smush them.
It doesn't damage them but people get mad when they see me do this.

I dump freshwater fish in saltwater and vice versa.
They'll be okay... right?

I regift crappy presents.
Oh boy. A peach apron... thanks?
*Next person I come up to*
Here! Have a peach apron!

I destroy other islands for their resources.
Ever read The Lorax? That's what the place looks like after I'm done looting it. But my island looks awesome and is eco-conscious! 😜
