To be honest, I've preferred the ergonomics of Sony's controllers ever since the PS2.  But I used to have a 360 so I'm used to the control scheme and it's just nice to be playing something like Saints Row 2 with a proper controller instead of the keyboard.

Interesting. I found that the PS4 controller was the first I could hold without cramping, probably because it's a wider grip. I actually switched from the 360 controllers to the XB1 controllers last year. They're both Xinput on Windows, but I discovered that I prefer the lighter control resistance of the XB1 as well as a proper D-pad (I think the 360 controller was designed before Nintendo's patent expired).
Alas poor Photobucket. I knew him Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy.

Stuck inside on a cold, rainy(flooded) day. The Wife has been watching Hallmark movies and I've been left with cold beer and Ripping N' Tearing through Doom(2016) on PC today :D ...Since I remembered that I can actually run it now after replacing my old GTX 780 with a 1070.  :-[

Hey, whatever works for you. I suggested the 360 controller because, well, it's what I like, but everyone's hands are different.

I was playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on my Nintendo Switch (yes I do love the Switch), and yesterday I was playing Shovel Knight on the same system and I totally dig Shovel Knight  :))

Portable or plugged in? I've found to my surprise I've been using it more as a portable machine even though the TV mode works very well.

I'm back to Binding of Isaac, mostly the excellent fan mod "Antibirth." While it certainly has its issues - especially in the disappointing Afterbirth+ DLC - it's still my favorite game, and I'm looking forward to another thousand hours in it.

Wait till you try it multiplayer. Although the shoulder buttons on the joycons are really loose, the experience isn't bad in a party atmosphere. That commercial was actually true believe it or not. I'd like to try with another owner on local net sometime.

There's a Shout that allows you to command a dragon to let you ride, but it's honestly on the lame side since you can't actually control the dragon, you just circle around the area for a while.

Closing in on the end of Breath of the Wild. 109 shrines, 319 korok seeds, and all divine beasts. Still looking to upgrade all the armor. What a delightful game of exploration.

Been playing through Dawn of War: Dark Crusade and Jade Empire again. I also just went a bit crazy on the GOG Summer Sale and now have Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition, Pillars of Eternity and its expansion, Worms: Armageddon and W.M.D. as well as Rebel Galaxy.

Playing through Saints Row 2 again, but this time I'm hitting all the Diversions before starting the main story to see how many unlockable bonuses I can rack up.  Already have unlimited pistol, SMG, and Shotgun ammo, plus increased health regen, improved melee damage, and extra stamina.

I have placed an order for Seek and Destroy. I loved the demo many years ago. I hope I can still enjoy of the game. Because it is a little known game, here is gameplay video for you to look at

[edit]
Demo for you to try it out. Could require use of DOSBox to get it to work.

[edit2]
Downloaded demo and played first scenario of it. Still a fun game O0

You know what they say, don't you? About how us MechWarriors are the modern knights errant, how warfare has become civilized now that we have to abide by conventions and rules of war. Don't believe it.

Got the game today on good old CD-ROM. Needs DOSBox to work, but it works. Except for USB gamepads: no matter how I calibrate them (in Windows and in the game), it is out of whack [tickedoff]

One of the main story quests has you doing a solid for Vivec, not too many fetch quests there. Mostly a mystery, but yeah there's the occasional "I need this..." type of mission. Afterwards I went around Vvardenfell and helped out Ashlanders, House Redoran, etc. I'm still low level on my Warden who I exclusively have on that island, but I'm enjoying it.

I've been playing Heroes and Generals. Not bad for a free game.
We hear that there are tumults and riots in Rome, and that voices are raised concerning the army and the quality of our soldiers. Make haste to reassure us that you love and support us as we love and support you, for if we find that we have left our bones to bleach in these sands in vain, then beware the fury of the legions.
