Blues? Personally, I think even reds give too much resistance for extended WASD sessions, but I love the typing feel too much to go back to a membrane keyboard just for gaming. This is what I got recently: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D3BDNLU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Frankly, it's way more money than anyone should ever spend on a keyboard, but I prefer gaming in the dark so backlighting is a must. And if you're going backlit you might as well go full RGB.

When I was a kid (and I won't admit to how long ago that was) every pizza place, 7-11, and grocery store in my area had at least a couple of machines. In addition to that, there were a couple of dedicated arcades within 10-15 miles of me. My faves: Punch Out, Karate Champ, Front Line, Paperboy, Jack the Giant Killer (deep cut), Star Wars, Tron.

I miss them all, but mostly because of the controls. Console controllers can't compare to big, sturdy arcade joysticks and buttons or the sheer variety of dedicated controls for different types of games.

Certainly can't blame him for hopping on this. It's a great opportunity.

Looking forward to Eddie Huang's hot take on Overwatch. ;)

Hey, Vinny... before he leaves, please make Austin sit down for 10-15 clean takes of his signature guffaw.

Thx.

I hope he's off to do something in game dev. Him leaving GB just to write about video games somewhere else would be kind of a bummer.

Either way, thanks Austin. It's been fun.

Horizon and Kojima's thing. Didn't give much of a shit about anything else they showed. Then sat back and watched my twitter feed fall all over itself with joy...?

Hey. Opinions.

Er... any chance they can push this back to 2017?

Please stop releasing games I can't resist buying. I don't have the time.

@rodrigo_aa:

More info on the Plex channel issue. List of devices I've tried:

  • Firefox and Chrome on Windows 10: works
  • PS4: works
  • Plex Media Player on Windows 10: doesn't work
  • Xbox One: doesn't work
  • Android tablet: doesn't work
  • Tivo: doesn't work

Up until a couple of weeks ago, all of the above were working. Now, attempting to play anything on the non-working devices just loads a recording of Jeff saying "This is an error message!"

@frytup: They were shocked at the crowd reaction when Shane came back that they kinda just made it up as they went along.

If Shane now disappears, I'll buy that he only wanted a short-term thing so they couldn't write much of an arc for him. If he continues to hang around, the whole thing looks silly.
