I bought PS4 controller


PlayStation 4 controller

Like I don't have enough controllers already… I think Xbox One controller is somewhat better. PlayStation 4 controller feels too soft. Yes, it has a touchpad, lights and a speaker, but the buttons’ press doesn't feels very crisp. Also the D-Pad feels kinda mushy, while on Xbox controller you can feel each direction very well. I guess I'll play with it for a while and then decide. I already know it'll be way better than Steam controller, at least in controller-based games.

I bought Steam Controller


Steam Controller

It costed a lot (even though I bought it from Amazon) and it wasn't easy to get it on time, but I managed to get my hands on it.

The controller has its ups and downs. I still can't decide if it's really good or not. I think I'll just make a bullet-list of its good and bad sides and then summarize my short experience with it.

How to make Steam recognize your gamepad in Linux

For some unknown reason Steam and some games require joystick device to be world-writable. Pretty dumb, since there's only need to read what it does, not to tell it what to do.

It turned out, that I need a full featured website much less than a simple blog. I don’t want to have a blog on Tumblr, but I do like their implementation of it, so I went with Chyrp, which is pretty close. But then Chyrp died, so I moved to Hugo. The blog is NSFW, as I might occasionally post some pr0n and other disturbing stuff.
