Controller it is. Even though I can’t use it for hours upon hours.
Out of nowhere I decided to install Skyrim. It’s great so far. But I don’t know in what way I’ll play it. I do have a PC compatible Xbox 360 wireless controller, and then there’s the good ol’ keyboard plus mouse.
Controller is good because: Skyrim doesn’t feature guns which need perfect aim, melee/unarmed has umph in combat, I’ll save on my back a bit. But bad because: I feel like the controls are clunky (I’ve never used the Xbox 360 as an Xbox 360 controller), it feels heavy and I use it too “hard”.
Right now it feels like the keyboard plus mouse would be the best for me, but I’ll sleep on it and make a decision tomorrow.
Fun fact: I started with a female Argonian, because they can breathe underwater. I totally forgot I have a big Skyrim guide, so I’ll look through that too.
I just started a casual hardcore mode New Vegas file with a male Uni Steel. I was progressing through the tutorial as I always do, and I was at the point where you’re supposed to shoot Sarsaparilla bottles on a fence when I spotted something glowing on the slope up to the cemetery. I went over there, and there laid Victor. Dead. At first I thought the bark radscorpion had killed him, but it was nowhere to be seen. So I don’t know what killed him. Must’ve been something terribly strong since Victor is a securitron.
In a non-casual file I would’ve reloaded, but for this one I’ll let it slide. In fact, I won’t let myself reload a previous save in this file. What is done is done. I’m going for unarmed with the Four Eyes trait.
Here’s the view from the back of the Prospector Saloon.
Here’s that one bark radscorpion, and up there is a dead Victor.
He had some ammo and one scrap metal on him. At the time of this shot it was after the tutorial, and he has stopped glowing.

I liked this challenge. I like when there are points given instead of one point per winning versus.
Other than that… uh… at least we’re more than halfway through.
I hated that they edited the footage during the fashion show so it seemed like men were instantly popping boners and getting distracted because the models wore swimwear. It’s just stupid. Is it supposed to be fun?
Also, the episodes have been slipping behind quite a bit. This one had no challenge, just dinner service. Lame.
