And the official MS rechargeable battery packs are even worse than Duracells.


As long as I can instantly swap in a freshly charged pack, I don't really care. PS3 you either need to swap to a different controller or pull out a long USB cable to continue playing.

Cheapy: I use the "Delete intro movies" trick on pretty much every game, it's great.

And don't let Wombat and Shipwreck raz you just because they don't know what FOV is. I don't see what's so mockery-worthy about bending games to your will! That's what PC gaming is all about: making them look and play how you want them to.

Many adjust FOV so they don't feel sick in fps games. The occasional fps game has given me a sick feeling or a headache and from what I read the FOV setting is why. Adjust it and sickness can go away. Something about a certain FOV causes the brain to sense too much of an imbalance in the movement on the screen with the non-movement outside the screen. And this makes some sick or gives them a headache etc. I looked into this quite a bit many years ago.

Funny to hear Cheapie already getting deep into pcgaming with his "hacks." I'm back into pcgaming too the past year, but haven't got back into the hacks much. As I get older just have less tolerance for spending time on that sht. Also seems to take longer for me to look that sht up nowadays.

I agree. The 360 pad would be better if it had an internal battery that lasted as long as the one in the Dual Shock 3, instead of a huge protruding lump on the back of the controller where AAs go to die. And the official MS rechargeable battery packs are even worse than Duracells.

I guess I should just shell out the cash for Eneloops because Microsoft couldn't put a decent Li-ion battery inside their wireless controller.


4 Eneloops and a charger is much better than an internal battery that you never know is charged or not.

It has an indication on the PS3... Well, whatever. I much prefer the internal battery, but I guess it's not everyone's thing. I'd just rather not have to buy batteries and/or a rechargeable one or a station or whatever.

The 360 controllers also have an indicator if you press the guide button.

If 360 batteries die while you're playing a game, you just throw some new ones in and keep going.

If your PS3 controller dies while you're playing a game, what do you do? Plug it in? The charging cable that comes with the PS3 is about 2 feet long. Good luck with that.

What I really hate is the lightshow on a 360 controller when it gets to around 1/3 of a charge. It'll still play for hours, but all those blinking lights drive me nuts.

I have to change them out immediately when that starts. Annoying to no end.

My favorite moment in the past 300 episodes is that part where you guys said dumb things and then people yelled at you in the corresponding thread.


You read it. You can't unread it.

Personally, I think this secondhand method of recalling bits from old episodes is more fun.

So did anyone correctly guess the MOBA song yet?

I know I've heard it before (possibly in some RPG / fantasy game?) and the answer is driving me nuts.

It's almost an obsession. I can't stop hearing it in my head. The last thought I had is that it is "Ride of the Valkyries." But, I didnt think it could be that butchered.

RE: MOBA
I want to say it's some XBLA thing like "Dust: An Elysian Tail" or "Puzzle Quest"
